I am so sorry this has happened to you and I wish you lots of luck!
Perhaps you can ask your lender for an agent referral.
Too many agents simply shy away from buyers. You are NOT doing anything wrong. Do not loose heart, your agent just like your home is out there. I hope you connect soon
You may find someone right here on Trulia.
I wish you the best of luck.

Inventory is low and prices are going up. Homes are consistently OVER list price and to those with the highest amount of cash down.
It's not fair to you...it's just the way it is right now. One of the worst markets for first time buyers I've ever seen.
Sorry I don't have a better answer...just bide your time and wait for the tide to turn.
First of all most the complexes in Winnetka & Reseda are not FHA approved and those that are, are getting gobbled up by cash investors.
Sorry, I wish you luck.
I am very familiar with those areas and I will be happy to be of service. It's a challenge in today's market to find a complex that is FHA approved, but certainly not impossible. Please see my information below and give me a call to discuss your situation further.

Definitely agree with Tina...it's not you, so please don't it personally.
Your difficulties are likely caused by a combination of factors including: price point, location, the present market conditions, availability etc.
Our recommendation...continue contact in as many agents as necessary. You'll eventually find someone that can assist you.
What you're experiencing is more reflective of market realities than any ill will. With the housing market currently so hot in California, the homes you're looking for in your budget are largely being picked up by cash buyers. So, even if you could technically get financing to buy those homes, they simply won't sit around long enough for you to have a chance. Even my clients with 10-20x the budget are having trouble winning deals. At this time, I can only advise you to have patience and look for a good Realtor and deal. You may need to spend 6-18 months, but you'll eventually get there.
