South Lyon real estate agents

When it comes to real estate agents who serve the South Lyon area, most are focused on sales and marketing. Or to put it differently, most are focused on listing homes for sale and then finding someone who will buy them.

We serve buyers looking to buy in South Lyon but our office is different. We are an Exclusive Buyer's Agent. (EBA) An Exclusive Buyer's Agent is a real estate company who never takes listings and never represents the best interest of a seller. This avoids the conflict of interest that traditional "list and sell" real estate offices have.

It also allows us to provide some unique services to home buyers.

We serve Livingston, Western Oakland, Western Wayne, and Washtenaw counties. 

If you are looking for an Exclusive Buyer's Agent in another area you can find one by visiting the website of the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents at

If you are interested in discussing your home buying needs feel free to visit our website linked above or just call us at 734-662-6240. We'll be happy to speak to you about buying a home in South Lyon.
