Exclusive Buyer Agents
Posted in the Real Estate Forum
#2 Sep 26, 2012
I am an Exclusive Buyer's Agent in Michigan and have been for ~20 years. I am a past president of NAEBA and I've know the Broker in Seal Beach for most of that time. He is an expert at home buying in the markets he covers and has gotten a lot of great reviews from buyers over the years.
Unfortunately I don't know or can't remember Buyer's Advantage. But if he is recommended by John from Seal Beach that is a credible recommendation.
I hope that helps.

Do not know if I can answer any better than Jon Boyd, but as an EBA for the past 15 plus years, I do not know of a better qualified EBA in the country to start with than someone that works with John Rygiol out of Seal Beach, CA.

As the Executive Director of NAEBA, I can tell you that it is somewhat typical. An EBA is a definite specialty in the real estate world. While consumer groups will even tell you that hiring an EBA is in the buyer's best interest, convincing real estate agents that they should become one is not as easy. Many have told me that they wouldn't do that because they'd be losing income. I don't see that as the case necessarily any more than I see a pediatrician losing income by only seeing children, but that appears to be the perception. In addition, NAEBA members cannot be part of a franchise corporation that takes listings (like Re/Max, Keller Williams, etc.). Because of that, EBAs make up less than 1% of the licensed real estate agents in the U.S., making them a somewhat scarce (but coveted) commodity.
As far as why you're not finding more recommendations, I'm not sure. What I can tell you is that if you call our referral service (800-986-2322), it's likely they can provide you with testimonials from past clients of the EBA as they try to collect that information from everyone who uses our service. In addition, John Rygiol also runs a referral service and is pretty strict with who he sends potential clients to, so if he recommends the other EBA, I would be confident in his recommendation.
Good luck with your search!

Exclusive agents are always better, because they act as your advocate for the buyer, helping to get the best price possiable on a sale...I agree!
