Secondly, are you interested in any of the properties that he did show you? If not, there is no issue. If so, even if you don't want him to represent you in your purchase, the agent who does represent you would need to work out the details with him. In other words if he showed it to you he has an interest (he will expect a portion of he commission) if you then pursue the purchase.

This is an important decision and you ideally would like to be in a position where you can trust the Broker and feel that he/ she is working to get your trust. Remember birds of a feather....
They say in Real Estate, it's all about Location. Maybe it's all about Relationships.

Fire the Realtor if you feel as if he isn't being responsive or professional at all. If you signed a Buyers Agency Agreement I would call the office and ask to speak with the managing broker and tell them you want it terminated or if possible email them directly so you have proof of it.
Call different Realtors and feel them out. Speak to your lender perhaps they can refer you to someone they've worked with in the past. If they don't please you fire them too! The home buying experience should be a great memory not a one to frown about. Sure they'll be deadlines to meet and negotiations to be had but overall knowing you have the guidance and support needed along the way will make it a pleasant experience.
My suggestion is to do what you are doing: Writing in looking for answers, calling different brokerages, seeking help, asking for testimonials, and praying for someone to step up. It all comes down to taking responsibility for what you want to accomplish and finding an advocate for your needs. Then, have a one-on-one meeting with the agent you feel is a good choice to determine if he/she fits your personality.
Sounds like you need a change! I enjoy helping people find their next home and I always make it a point to get back to my clients in a timely fashion.
I would like to speak to you to learn your wants and needs and send you listings that meet your specific criteria.
Please feel free to call or email me anytime and we can set a time to have coffee to see if we fit.
Thanks and have a great rest of the weekend!
