In almost every state in the U.S., buyers have the option of being represented by their real estate agent. This relationship creates responsibilities that require the agent put their client's interests above their own.
The duties a buyer or seller can expect to receive among others are honesty, accountability, full disclosure, representation and reasonable skill and care. In a nutshell, the agent who represents you is working in your best interest.
It's a special relationship that doesn't exist with most of the other professionals involved in a real estate transaction. Mortgage and title officers are limited to their duties of honesty, accountability and specific requirements under the Real Estate Settlement and Procedures Act.
This special relationship with your real estate agent makes it advantageous to have them coordinate your efforts with the other professionals in the home buying process. Since most buyers' and sellers' transactions are infrequent, the agent can bring valuable experiences to the transaction.
