How to be certain if your buying agent is acting in your best interest?

My wife and i found a waterfront manufacture home with an acreage of land. My wife is not comfortable with our buying agent because the company for both the selling and buying agents are under one parent company call Ziprealty. our agent explained that he represent our interest and he is from a different brokerage (seller agent is from federal way and buyer agent is from puyallup).
