Canadian Real Estate/Hiring an Agent


I am an American living in Stockton, California. I am interested in buying some waterfront property in the Nova Scotia or New Brunswick area. Here in California the property buyers never pay for hiring a Real Estate agent. How does it work in Canada ?...or does it depend on the province ?
Also,even if I have to pay for one, what is a good way to find an RE agent in Nova Scotia that specializes in waterfront ?

Thank you,


Hello Vic,
Thank you for your question. In Canada it works the same as in the US. The Buyer Agent is paid by the Seller. I would be happy to refer you to one of my Keller Williams Associates in Nova Scotia that specializes in Waterfront. If you email me your requirements I'll provide you with an Agent that would be able to assist you - you can email me directly at
