Helping People Buy And Sell Homes on the Outer Banks
There is no Law that says you have to sign an Exclusive Buyer Agency Agreement before an agent can help you with buying a home. A Non-Exclusive Agency Agreement works and does not force unwarranted obligations on you.

The hotels and motels are all empty so you can come and go as you please. All of the rental houses are vacant so you can view them without having to worry about vacationers not letting us in. more

Contrary to what many people think, it DOES NOT COST ANYTHING to have an agent work for you in North Carolina. We get paid by commission from the sale. All of the sellers in the Outer Banks Association of REALTORS MLS have agreed to pay that commission to us, regardless of what company has the property for sale. This is what you can expect:
- We will not make you sign any commitment, long term or short.
- NC Buyer Agency DOES NOT require a contract.
- If you find yourself only looking at houses with your agent’s company’s signs, be careful. Chances are that agent is not working for you.
- We will show you only properties that fit your requirements. There are over 4000 different pieces of real estate for sale on the Outer Banks right now. One of them is just right for you.
- We will use our MLS computer capabilities to search for all of the properties that fit your needs.
- We will provide you with information about the SOLD houses that are comparable to what you are considering. How else can you decide how much to offer?
- We will negotiate on your behalf to get the best possible price.
