I agree that your agent should be the one contacting the Seller's Agent and her Broker.
As hard as it may sound, I honestly believe that everything happens for a reason, and hopefully at the end, you will see that in Real Estate, things like this happen but at the very end one will say "I'm so glad this or that".
Good luck!!! :)

Each of these items are the important steps to be completed within the first 10 days of the escrow cycle. Depending on how many "YES" answers you can make here will be a good judge as to your progress.
It is your agent's job to communicate with the listing agent and keep this process on target.
Good luck with your closing.
You are undermining your own Agent.
Ask your Agent to contact her Broker and tell him your concerns.
Let your agent do his job.
Adopt the attitude that you don't care if this fails; that is the nature of Shortsales and you cannot get stressed out because of it.
Good luck and may God bless
- Has seller accepted final counter offer?
- Are you in escrow?
- Is there any Good Faith Money in Escrow?
Or could be lender not responding to agent and combination of the two. You can contact seller's agent to consolidate your deal. I Do agree with buyer's agent and do not think you have a deal because non-responsive sellers agent. This is high drama and do not know if necessary. After
buyer(s) have exhausted all channels look for any other property. Short sale inventory and REO listings have deceased. Looking for new property focus on standard sales and I do like REOs.

2. have your agent forward all emails regarding the transaction to you.
3. See where the problems are at for sure.
4. make sure everything you do is in writing.
5. if the problem lies with the listing agent, have your agent send the info to the listing agents broker on the second occasion by email. Bosses aka brokers just love agents who fail to do their job.
6. If the problem lies with your agent then contact your agents broker.
7. you can find your agents broker on http://www.dre.ca.gov
Bottom line don't buck protocol but make sure you do it right and in writing.

Have your agent or your agent's broker manager contact the selling agent and/or their broker manager to find out what is going on.
If you have an accepted offer, with a contract signed by both the buyers and sellers, it is binding, however, in a short sale, the bank must give final approval.
This sometimes takes time to get a short sale approval.
All the best,
If the listing "agent" does not return your buyer agent calls, she for sure will not return yours. I would not waste your time. Your Agent can call the listing agent's broker, that might get you some answers. Sad to say, I have seen this situation before with distressed property.
I know that the whole short sale process can be frustrating, hang in there. Also you can ask your agent to contact the condo association directly to get the right documents.
