Dedicated Services For Home Buyers

MABA is a nonprofit organization of real estate professionals who are dedicated to getting the best home for the lowest price for their buyer-clients. We specialize in saving buyers time and money and provide educational programs for consumers and buyer agents throughout the state.

The emergence of Buyer Agency (also known as Buyer Brokerage) is probably the most significant change in the real estate industry in the last 50 years. Buyer agents help home buyers search the entire market for the best possible home and negotiate on their behalf for the best price and terms. They also help buyers shop for the:

  • best price
  • service and terms for a mortgage loan
  • least expensive and most effective attorney representation
  • best qualified home inspectors
  • least expensive home insurance

All buyers agents are not created equal!
MABA buyer's agents are not only the pioneers in buyer's agency, but they are also the buyer's agents who hold to the highest standards of agency. They are dedicated to working only in companies that never represent both the buyer and the seller of the same home at the same time. Many "buyer's agents" will work in companies where agents can represent both sides of a home sale. If you want a dedicated buyer's agent, choose a MABA buyer's agent. Consumer advocates have heralded buyer brokerage as the best choice for home buyers.
