When it comes to buying a business, an exclusive buyers agent may be the way to go.The Colorado Exclusive Buyer Agents Association is holding its annual conference today and May 16 to educate businesses and consumers about how they differ from traditional real estate agents. In fact, the theme is differentiation.Buyer agents never list properties or businesses, which allows them to concentrate all their efforts on advising, counseling and representing buyers, free from the conflict of interest and environment of compromise inherent in the traditional real estate office where brokers are working with buyers and sellers at the same time, said Chris Eby, owner of Buyers Resource Real Estate in Frisco.Colorado real estate law allows for four types of real estate agents: sellers agents, buyers agents, transaction brokers and designated agents.For more information, call Eby at (970) 668-5165.
