Developers need agents to sell their property so they will almost never sell behind the agents back. That will cost them lots of business in the future, once the act is know and it always will come to the surface. You can go direct to the developer but will not get any direct advantage of that, surely not financially. Once you are listed as potential buyer with an agent and you are interested in a development or that specific development gives you the perfect property, your name will be noticed brought in by the agent you work with. That moment it has no point to go directly to the developer. And by the way, buying from the agent or direct from the developer, the price will be the same, non of the developers gives the sales commission from the agent to the buyer who is going direct.
