Buyer Representation

The Questions.
Do I need a Real Estate Professional? How do I choose one?
And what’s the difference in the type of agency?


One of the biggest mistakes

A buyer can make is purchasing a property without the assistance of an experienced Real Estate Professional.  A real estate agent that represents the buyer and provides skill, care & diligence in the transaction is called a Buyer’s Agent. A Buyer’s Agent is your advocate in the transaction.

A good real estate professional helps you understand the area, the different characteristics of each neighborhood, narrow your search, point you in the right direction, provide invaluable local knowledge and lore that will assist in your final decision, guides you in the terms of contract and financing process and enables you to successfully navigate the home buying process.

Transaction Brokerage vs. Single Agency

Who represents you as your Buyer’s Agent is your choice. Don’t be fooled into thinking that agents acting in a Transaction Brokerage capacity are not acting in your best interests. It’s just not true. In Florida, Transaction Brokerage is permitted under the law and the assumed brokerage role. Transaction Brokerage is not Dual Agency. The rules of confidentiality and working in the best interests of your client still apply.


The duties of the transaction broker include the following:

  • Dealing honestly and fairly
  • Accounting for all funds
  • Using skill, care, and diligence in the transaction
  • Disclosing all known facts that materially affect the value of residential real property and are not readily observable to the buyer
  • Presenting all offers and counteroffers in a timely manner, unless a party has previously directed the licensee otherwise in writing
  • Limited confidentiality, unless waived in writing by a party, that prevents disclosure of the motivation of any party for selling or buying property, any party’s willingness to agree to financing terms other than those offered, or of any other information requested to remain confidential
  • Any additional duties that are mutually agreed to with a party

If you elect to work with an agent in a single agent capacity a real estate sales associate may not accept or give an offer from or to a real estate sales associate working under the same broker if the client has established a single agent relationship with that brokerage. If a sales associate working under the same broker desire to enter into negotiation with another sales associate in that brokerage, the sales associate acting as a single agent would first need to obtain written consent from their client in order to change their relationship to a transaction broker.

This means you could be limited to which properties you can offer on without transitioning to a Transaction Broker relationship.


To further provide our clients with peace of mind and since Jason and Dyan Pithers are a husband & wife team, they create a “wall” and have separate practices within the business framework. We always designate who will primarily represent the Seller or Buyer in a transaction. We do not compromise our ethics in any situation and maintain loyalty and confidentiality to make sure the best deal is struck between the parties. This allows Jason & Dyan Pithers to represent the Buyer and Seller in a single transaction but still maintain an “arm’s length transaction”.

Differences in Florida
Home Purchase Process

Every state’s home buying process is different. Jason & Dyan Pithers can let you know how the home buying process in Florida may differ from your originating State or Country. In Florida, title companies act as a neutral party to ‘settle’ the transaction. They are responsible to research the chain of title, make sure the Seller can transfer clear and marketable title and then issue an Owner’s Title Policy to the Buyer to insure them after closing. It’s very different from other States where attorneys ‘settle’ the transaction. That doesn’t mean you can’t have attorney review –  it’s always an option.
