That being said, I think an honest conversation with the agent would be a helpful.
I would recommend that you reach out to that agent and/or their broker in charge and let them know that you are not happy. You can ask to be assigned to another agent in their company and/or released from the agency agreement. Keep in mind that the agency agreement is linked to the company not the agent. As others have mentioned you may run into a procuring cause scenario and more but they are also contractually obligated to be working for you which it sounds like may or may not be happening.
Best of luck and I hope you get the house you want and hopefully can get your agent to cooperate or find a way out.
Check your paperwork to see if you signed an EXCLUSIVE Buyer Agency Agreement. Exclusive is the key word here, as we have two types of Buyer Agency Agreements in NC, exclusive and non-exclusive.
If you signed an exclusive agreement, the next step is to check the expiration date. Look up paragraph 3 DURATION OF AGENCY and finally paragraph 4c(ii) COMPENSATION OF FIRM.
Speaking as an agent, I believe honesty is the best policy. I believe you should let the agent know that you were not happy with his/her service. After all, we are all human and we learn from our mistakes.
Feel free to call me if you have any questions.
Please let me know if I can answer any additional questions directly.
