I have influenced sellers to fire their agents and sell me their property. It works so much better with only a buyer, seller, closing attorney.
Btw, comps older than 3 months should not be considered.
Really, we're all eyes here. Explain how you are the wronged party here?
Looks like you just want to blow off steam. How many BUyers out there don't want a good deal, especially in a Buyer's market loaded with overpriced listings?
By the way, I was an active Realtor for fifteen years. My beef with the Listing Broker is that she never bothered to send back anything signed from the Seller. I'm not too sure she even tells him about our offers unless I have something in writing from him. Selling isn't about getting huffy (like you have). It's about being a professional and ethical. I haven't seen either from the Listing Broker/Agent,
I'm not saying your objectives are misguided, just that you can't be surprised by a little pushback!

Our first offer was low, but our last one was good considering the condition of the property.
Thanks for your input.
Consider having the property appraised and each of you could agree to abide y the appraised value.
The Listing agent may not have the finest ethics in the world, or even common sense but then all we have is one side of the story and perhaps you aren't be realistic with your offer either.
She is the broker and she answers to no one but herself. She has most of the properties listed in this area and they are all overpriced.
It's just disgusting to be a qualified buyer that is looking for a good deal and get treated like we don't exist.
Would you want another agent going behind your back to deal with your customer...it's simply unethical! A call to her broker may serve to accomplish the attention you need to get beyond this but don't get involved with taking any measures that would cause problems for youself.
My feeling is that Selling Agent (also the Broker for her co) wants to sell it herself to one of her own clients. First she told our agent that Seller was ready to "walk." Then, when we offered the first time he wanted something with a "4" in front. When we offered $401,000 she told us he wanted $460.000. We still don't have anything but HER advice, nothing in writing from the Seller.
The listing agent works for the seller. Do you think the seller would taker your advice over their own agent?
This is a question you should be asking your own agent. If you don't feel comfortable with your agent's performance, voice your concerns. He/she is there to fight for you.
