The Baumann Group brings you the best Buyer Agents to represent you when buying a home. To find out what a Buyers Agent is, and why you will want to use one, visit The New York State Buyers Broker Association website at; www.NYSBBA.com. According to The Realty Times, "In the majority of real estate transactions, buyers are better served working with an agent who represents JUST them, as is the case with a Buyer's Agent. That way, buyers have the peace of mind of knowing that a true agent-client relationship exists; they have the guarantee that any time they confide in their Buyer's Agent, their remarks remain confidential; and they can rest assured that someone is looking out for their interests (which has to be more comforting than knowing someone is just "being fair" to them)."
Services That Buyers’ Agents Offer to Their Clients:
*Reliable advice and information is perhaps the key factor in making a "good decision". As a buyers agent, they will provide you info such as, but not necessarily limited to the following:
* The original purchase price of the house.

Locust Valley Information
With the arrival of the Long Island Rail Road, a commercial center developed and thrived around the Locust Valley station and the nearby intersection of Forest Ave/Buckram Road and Birch Hill Road. As the North Shore of Long Island grew into the Gold Coast in the early 20th century, the commercial center grew to serve the great estates that were being established in the surrounding communities of Bayville, Centre Island, Lattingtown, Mill Neck, Matinecock, Muttontown and The Brookvilles.
Locust Valley: A Place Named for Its Beautiful Trees
It's a peaceful setting of elegant homes, rolling hills, two-lane roads and woods filled with the trees that give Locust Valley - right in the heart of Long Island's Gold Coast - its distinctive name.
Strictly speaking, "Locust Valley" on the map is a quaint unincorporated hamlet of Oyster Bay Town, just one square mile in size with shops and boutiques, a library, fire house and Long Island Rail Road Station. But the hamlet was once part of a much larger region in what is now northern Nassau County, settled by farmers around 1667 and dubbed Matinecock after the Indian tribe.
Today, when most residents talk of the "Locust Valley" area, they include, at least, the surrounding incorporated villages of Lattingtown, Matinecock and Mill Neck - a location encompassing two exclusive private golf clubs, the Creek (founded in Lattingtown in 1923 by J. Pierpont Morgan Jr.) and the Piping Rock in Matinecock, historic landmarks and celebrity homes.
