Exclusive buyer agents and the advantages of using one were featured March 17, 2010 on the Lifetime channel, the Balancing Act. The executive director of the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents (naeba.org)http://www.naeba.org/, Kim Kahl, explains how having someone who is 100% on your side in a real estate transaction is so important. President Benjamin Clark does an excellent job of explaining how exclusive buyer agents typically get paid out of the transaction, a question commonly asked by consumers.
The host of this program appears to enthusiastically endorse the idea of every home buyer seeking out an exclusive buyer agent.
