Unfortunately, I have had that happen too. I couldn't get an appointment to show the house, but my buyer could get one through the listing agent. After my client made the plans with the listing agent, I called them up and asked why I wasn't able to show it but they were. Suddenly I was given access (and my client bought the house.) You could also take your agent along with you during the time scheduled with the listing agent. I really think you need your own representation, especially if you happen to be working with someone on the other side who is less than candid.
Good luck to you!
The Multiple listing service allows for cooperation between brokers. Any listing broker trying to bypass this concept by saying no further showings to a broker but yes to you would be highly suspect in my opinion. If they are willing to misdirect another broker, can you imagine how fast they will throw you under the bus?
If you are goign to pay your broker, that fee can be negotiated between you both. I would only say that you negotiate before submitting any offers and get it in writing. Good luck.
I would believe listing agent wants you on property determine if she can snag a new client YES CLOSE means no other offers being accepted.
Then you and your agent meet the listing agent AMAZED what will take place.
Great myth regarding % off list price , in some instances sales offer could be over list price or way below your agent who represents who works on your behalf determine what works best for all parties
