Massachusetts exclusive buyer agent real estate firm Buyers Brokers Only, a member of the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents (NAEBA), is excited to announce the creation of a $1,000 scholarship program, Boston.com reported on May 15, 2013. Scholarships will be awarded to two individuals who can best demonstrate with a short video why a smart consumer should use an exclusive buyer agent when buying a home.
The scholarship contest is open to all individuals who will be enrolled in a U.S. accredited post-secondary institution during the Fall 2013 session regardless of major or degree program, including those attending accredited post-secondary trade or technical schools.
"With the cost of higher education continually on the rise, we are happy to partner with the National Association of Buyer Agents to offer this scholarship program," Richard Rosa, broker/owner of Buyers Brokers Only, LLC said. "It's also an opportunity for students and others to learn about the importance of having a real estate buyer agent that is 100 percent loyal to the home buyer."
Video entries are being accepted immediately through May 31, 2013. Starting June 25, 2013, the public may vote on their favorite video and the top 40 finalists will be reviewed by a NAEBA committee. The two winners will be announced on July 31, 2013. For full details and an entry form, students can visit the NAEBA Web site (naeba.org/scholarship-video-contest-rules).

About the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents
The National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents (NAEBA) is an organization of real estate professionals who have dedicated their business lives to representing only buyers of real estate. NAEBA buyer agents don't list homes for sale and never represent sellers. This restriction to one side of the real estate transaction stands out as vitally important in light of what has happened in real estate in the last decade or so. Since several states discarded the common law of agency in the mid 1990s, the real estate agent's duties of obedience, undivided loyalty, confidentiality and reasonable care have been greatly diminished. More importantly, most consumers are not aware of agency concepts.
