Removing The Confusion Between Types of Buyer Agent. Barrington & Beyond. I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while but have held back until a recent conversation with a buyer and what factual information published was actually not true. So here goes. First and foremost I am a buyers agent working in the Barrington area. Because there are nearby towns that have very similar homes I also help buyers in Lake Zurich, Kildeer, Hawthorn Woods and Long Grove. 90% of my business comes from working with buyers.
