I am going to wonder - why are they impatient?
I will tell you that people come to us because they want to buy real estate, so it does surprise us when they aren't buying, but sometimes there's a good reason.
Instead they started to work with another agent who also devoted months to them, he finally said no more.
eventually they purchased a home with still another agent, and purchased a home that wasn't even in the area that they were searching for the prior 2 years!
I don't know what the market is like in your area, but if it's anything like here, have patience, if your Realtor is rude and not a good fit for you, let him/her know and move on to another
Lots of answers here. Buying in this area right now is very competitive and tricky. Matteson is a very popular area and decent properties and even not so decent ones are flying off the market with multiple offers. It makes things difficult for buyers and their agents.
You should not work with two Realtors. Only one Realtor can show you one house, so if you work with more than one - you are going to get confused. Plus, everyone deserves to be paid for their work. If a Realtor gives you their time and expertise, you owe them loyalty.
But at the same time, if you are not getting the service you want and deserve, then you need to have that settled. I would discuss the problem with his/her broker. The broker can assign someone else to you and/or work it out with your current agent. Or you can speak to them directly and work it out.
And of course, if you have an exclusive agreement, you need to abide by that agreement.
I would try to work it out. This Realtor knows you and what you want. There is a learning curve. But if you can't get satisfaction, get a new Realtor.

Find a new Realtor. Working with one (assuming you're searching in one basic area) is far more effective, than duplicating efforts with one good one, and one impatient one.
I think you need to stick with one agent. If you hire me and I invest my time helping you, I should be able to earn your business and get paid. I think the bigger question is why are you keeping the 1st agent if you are unhappy? Have you sat down with your agent and told them how you feel? Start there the agent may not know you are unhappy and will change how they work with you. If not fire that agent and find a new one.
Yes, if you don't inform both.
If you don't like your current Realtor, discuss the situation with him/her. Then decide whether you want to change Realtors. You won't get better service or a wider choice of properties with two Realtors than you will with one. You just have to find the one right Realtor for you.
Hope that helps.
I don't know how unethical it is but unfair, yes. To have two agents working on your behalf without knowledge of the other, is disrespective of their time and expertise. Have a discussion with your present agent. If that doesn't work, find one you feel understands your needs, your time frame and work with that one.
Best of luck,
That is a touchy question. The agent / client relationship needs to be built on a good working relationship. If you do not feel like you are getting the service, support, or interaction you need, then you should look at alternatives. Before you do that you may want to have a discussion with your current agent to let them know what you are feeling. It may be something you two can work out, it may not. Either way, you would either continue to work with your current agent, or get a new one. Using 2 is somewhat pointless, especially if the 1st one is not working well with you.
