“I am a South Carolina Realtor and chose to work with Don as I did not know the Greenville area. I wanted a Greenville Realtor who only works with Buyers to represent me and Don was the man. He was great to work with, very knowledgeable of Greenville real estate and made the buying process smooth. There are a lot of realtors in Greenville, but I always felt that my best interests were in his sights. Thanks Don for everything.” Kristi H., South Carolina Realtor.

What is an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent?
An exclusive buyer’s agent does not list any homes and is bound to work in the buyer’s best interest. Folks, I’ve been an exclusive buyer’s agent for over 18 years now. I’ve helped hundreds of nice people buy homes in the Greenville SC area. I’m an Accredited Buyer’s Representative and a member in good standing with the Real Estate Buyers Agents Council. Titles are nice but in reality, it’s what you’ve done that is more important.
There are a lot of Realtors in Greenville SC, but not many are exclusive buyer’s agents. Why? For one thing, it’s much more difficult to make a living as an exclusive buyer’s agent.
As competitive as the Greenville SC real estate market is if you don’t list homes for sale then it is very difficult to find buyers to work with. So most realtors in Greenville list homes and pick up buyers that way or have their own “buyer’s agents” show their listings.
Good Standing and Great Reviews
I am a member in good standing with the Greenville Association of Realtors, South Carolina Association of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors and the Real Estate Buyers Agents Council (REBAC).

How to Select a Realtor
Buying a new home is one of the most important events in a person’s life. It is a commitment that may well last a lifetime. A home is more than just walls and a roof; it is an integral part of your family, an extension of who you are.
When purchasing that home in Greenville, SC one of the most important steps is to select the right agent. Greenville Realtors come in many forms, but as a buyer, an exclusive buyer’s agent might be the way to go.
What is an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent?
An exclusive buyer’s Realtor works exclusively for the buyer. They do not list a property for sale. Instead, they spend all of their time and effort in the search for the perfect home for your family. This means there is never a conflict of interest that might arise when a realtor has a vested interest in whether or not a specific property sells.
Because an exclusive buyer’s agent does not list homes, all properties are equal players on the real estate field. This opens up even more possibilities for the new homeowner. Also, there is never a fee to the home buyer when using a buyer’s agent.
What a Buyer’s Agent Does for the New Homeowner
- Show property – a buyer’s agent shows hundreds of homes a year giving them a good handle on what is available and which neighborhoods are up and coming or on the downturn. They know the school districts and which neighborhoods are best for the needs of the buyer.
- Assist with the offer, contract, and negotiations – once you find the perfect home, a buyer’s agent will help you get it for the price you want. Keep in mind, that a seller has someone on their side working for them. It always comes in handy to have someone on your side with your best interests at heart.
- Help with inspectors – a buyer’s agent will be your go-between with home inspectors.
When looking at the selection of Greenville, Realtors keep an exclusive buyer’s agent in mind. Find an agent that has lived and worked in the city of Greenville and the surrounding communities for an extended period of time. A Greenville, real estate agent that knows the area will understand the neighborhoods and have the personal and business connections with local banks, inspectors, and contractors that will make your experience just that much easier. And remember an exclusive buyer’s agent does not list any homes.

, etc., so how do you decide? How do you decide if there is value in the home? Who do you contact for the preapproval? Who do you choose to close the transaction and do the title work? Who do you hire for the home inspections, the termite inspections, roof, radon, etc? I mean who do you??? How do you know what to offer? Who do you trust writing the offer and working the contract?
Buyer’s Agent vs. Listing Agent
Well do you hire the listing agent who is working for the seller to be your guardian? Of course not, why would you? Do you hire a Greenville SC Realtor who is not an exclusive buyers agent? Well, of course not. This is a specialized business folks, you need someone who lives and breathes buyer agency. You don’t need a jack of all trades.

Work Exclusively with Home Buyers
I’ve been specializing as an exclusive buyers agent in the Greenville South Carolina area for many years. When I started my career, I did what most realtors do. I listed homes, advertised them in the local real estate books and picked up buyers from the calls on homes that I had listed. The more I started working with buyers the more I enjoyed my career.
No Conflict of Interest
I eventually moved completely away from taking listings. I got my ABR designation and really started to focus on how I could improve my service to buyers only in Upstate SC. One of the ways I found to improve my services was to build an informative web site to assist buyers in learning about the Greenville, Simpsonville, Greer, Taylors and surrounding Upstate areas.
I’ve combined that desire to assist buyers with my passion for photography to hopefully give you an idea of what Greenville is like.
Did you know:
- I am paid by the transaction, no charge to you.
- As a buyer client, I have a fiduciary duty to you to provide Confidentiality, Loyalty, Obedience, Reasonable Care and Diligence, Full Disclosure & Accountability.
- I am bound to represent your interests above all others, including my own.
- As a buyer client you are in more control of the transaction, me and the time period for representation.
- As a buyer client you will have more access to seeing more homes.
As I mentioned on my front page, I’ve helped more than a hundred and fifty clients buy homes and land in the area over the years…….people from all walks of life, from Fluor Daniel to Greenville Hospital System, Lowes to Victoria’s Secrets, vets, doctors, realtors, lawyers, theater managers, teachers, first time home buyers, experienced investors, just a lot of good people.
