The Buyer Representation Agreement ...
How We Can Work For YOU!!

At DMS Properties, LLC ... Residential Real Estate Services, we use an Exclusive Right to Represent Buyer Agreememt.

When you begin the search for a property (whether you are looking to buy or rent) and don't have the signed buyer representation agreement, our agents technically are still an agent of the seller (owner) of the property and can only discuss certain things about the property with you. The "Agency" relationships between buyers and real estate agents and the sellers of properties in Maryland is very complicated and best explained in the "Understanding Who Real Estate Agents Represent" dislosure form. For us to completely represent you as a buyer's (tenant's) agent, it is really important to have a buyer-representation agreement in place BEFORE we begin to write an offer for the property, so that we can adequately serve your needs as the buyer.

Until such time as we have the signed Agreement, we will treat you as a Customer, and there are limits to what we can do for you and what we can tell you about any properties that we visit. Specifically, we cannot provide you with detailed information provided by the sellers of individual properties.

The best way for us to handle this is to go over the agreements, along with the agency disclosures at our first meeting prior to going out to look at properties.

Remember that if someone has their property listed in the MLS for sale through a Realtor, they have an agent representing their interests ... Shouldn't You?

You can download and print the Exclusive Right to Represent Buyer Agreement. Agreement. When we meet to discuss the purchase of your new home, we will discuss this form in detail so that we can become your Buyer's Agent and give you all of the benefits of full Buyer Representation. This will put you on equal terms with the sellers of most properties, unless they are trying to sell their property on their own. You can review the agreement below:

3. MINISTERIAL ACTS. The Broker and sales associates of Broker may perform ministerial acts, which are acts that assist another person to complete or fulfill a sale or lease with the client of the Broker and sales associate and which do not involve discretion or exercise of Broker and sales associate’s own judgment.
