Procuring cause is only an issue if agent #2 helps you buy the home that agent #1 showed you. And it's an issue between agents and is not your problem. Procuring cause is also difficult to prove - especially with no signed representation agreement.
So is you would prefer to work with another agent (for whatever reason) go for it.
No, you don't...........that is something between the agents.
Consumers are not expected to "check it out", or understand how procuring cause works, or what is involved in such a case.
If it's an issue, it is handled between the agents and their Brokers.
Your purchase should not be impeded in any way.
Is there a reason you don't want to continue working with him or her?
Are you planning on making an offer on the home this agent showed you?
If so, make sure you disclose what has occurred to the "2nd/new" agent you decide to use, so that any potential conflicts (procuring cause) can be worked out between them.
Their business discussion should have nothing to do with you proceeding with the offer /purchase.
Otherwise....you're free to do what you want.

Buyers need to know that we really don't show homes for the fun of it. Most of us take our business and loyalties very seriously, but hope to have loyalty from buyers -- with or without a signed buyers agreement.
