A better way to buy Real Estate
The Buyers' Brokerage provides Exclusive Buyers Agency to Real Estate buyers in central California.

Exclusive Buyer Representation really is a better way to buy real estate, and there are two main advantages to using an Exclusive Buyer's Agent:

The first is that you completely avoid conflicts of interest between the buying side and the selling side. An EBA never has an incentive to show you a property listed by the agent's own brokerage, because Exclusive Buyer's Agents never take listings. Not only do the individual agents not take listings, but no one in the entire brokerage takes listings. With an EBA, you get 100% loyalty to buyers, 100% of the time.

The second reason why you should consider an Exclusive Buyer's Agent is because EBA's are able to devote 100% of their focus to the purchasing process. EBA's do not spend time and resources listing properties, marketing properties, holding open houses, or doing any of the multitude of things necessary to sell property. EBA's work only with buyers and therefore are able to develop a greater degree of expertise in the practice of purchasing property.

Don't settle for Dual Agency and other compromised arrangements. Read this to learn more.

If you are curious about how a Buyer's agent can help you save money and protect yourself, feel free to call us any time.

You can you have your own buyer's agent, unbiased, completely loyal, and working only for you, usually all paid for by the seller. It's really true.

The Buyers' Brokerage exists because, after working in one form or another in traditional real estate for years, we came to see that exclusive buyer representation is by far-and-away the highest and best service to real estate buyers, and we dedicated this company to that end. We have found the best agents in the business to work with our buyers, and we're not too modest to say so.

Rex Kuns has worked on complex real estate deals from Big Sur to Santa Cruz, and knows the Monterey Bay coastline like no one else. His dual backgrounds in economics and contracting, along with his immense knowledge of local history and an unmatched work ethic, make him one of the most dynamic agents in central California.

Trevor Roberti originally came to work for us as a broker-associate, but after demonstrating consistent excellence for over a year, he was promoted to Broker, and now manages the Santa Cruz and Monterey Buyers Brokerage office, in addition to providing the highest level of service to his select buyer clients.

At the Buyers' Brokerage, we work a little differently that at most real estate companies, in that our agents do not compete with one another for the same pool of clients. Our clients can choose to work with one, several, or all of our agents at any time, and the agents lend their expertise to one another to maximize the benefit to our clients.

Both of our web sites, http://www.santacruzbuyers.com and http://www.montereybuyers.com offer a unique MLS Property Search tool that allows you to search by Satellite, Terrain, Map, or Hybrid view, and has Google Street View in the Property Details page. It's hard to find something more useful. You can even sign up for RSS feeds of new listings.

We also offer some great real estate tools, as well as articles on Buyers' Issues. Agency, FSBO properties, Luxury Real Estate, foreclosures, and much more.

Happy house hunting.

Team reviews

Andy and Rex are absolutely brilliant. With energy and expertise in seemingly endless reserve, the Buyers Brokerage led us thru the always tricky process of family relocation with professionalism and care. We fell out of escrow on three properties over a six month span, until alighting on a perfect home. Andy was not only patient but dynamic in all phases and at every turn in the negotiations. Rex was thorough and cheerful when details had to be addressed and got the best results for us with no drama. Their network of inspectors and subcontractors are all top of their field-not the most expensive- just the best to work with. We are in the enviable position now of having an in with tradesmen whose services usually go to people who have lived in the area much longer. While I would certainly recommend this company to everyone, I would insist that my friends and family use the Buyers Brokerage.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $575K in Ben Lomond, CA.

Andy Salamone at The Buyers' Brokerage is the best broker that you will ever come across. He and his agents worked tirelessly to help us find the perfect home, listening to every concern and every desire, and always encouraging us to take our time. They offered completely customized service and helped us with the process as much or as little as we needed at any given time. Most importantly, Andy is a keen negotiator with a lot of integrity and a gentle and patient personality, qualities that are rarely found together in one person, but that made all the difference in working the difficult deal that finally ended in the purchase of our home.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $525K in Santa Cruz, CA.

Andy acted as a fantastic advocate for my husband and me (and our two small children) as we looked for our first home last year. Because of our price range and location, the market was still highly competitive and complicated by the demands of negotiating traditional sales, bank-owned properties, and short sales. Andy was extremely knowledgeable, diligent, creative, persistent, and quick-thinking and -acting. Because of such qualities, we were able to successfully close on a house which we thought we'd never be able to call home.  More Less
