I recommend Duane as a buyer's agent. He listens, presents data, and stays relatively neutral when showing a home; not pushy. Occasionally, he's found ways of making the sale work better, and, on one occasion, eventually listed a home in which we had our interest, to bring the deal to fruition.<br/><br/>As with all brokers, ask for YOUR deal on YOUR terms, and insist on not paying junk fees that are created just to add profit for the broker. RE/MAX Affiliates broker wasn't doing so well in the down economy and added junk fees to our latest deal, and we insisted that those could not be on the buyer's side of the ledger.<br/><br/>I do a lot of research when purchasing something like this... far more than any broker ever does. I have bought two homes with Duane's help. <br/><br/>We had listed one house for sale, but we found that we got far more showings using another listing agent. So I think of Duane as primarily a buyer's rep.
