If you signed a specific "Buyer Agency Agreement" with a different agent for specific properties, you need to review what the specifics of this agreement entail. Again, we don't know what this contract states, so it would be tough to help advise you here.
If I were in your shoes, I would talk to both agents and be honest with them both. I would ask them both to see if there's a way to work things out so that you can achieve your goals of buying your next home. If one is willing to waive his/her claim on the commission, or if they're both willing to work out the commission between themselves, I would make sure you get the information in writing. Who knows, the agents might be best of friends, and might be happy to work it out.
Remember, Realtors have an ethical obligation to work in their clients' best interest. I wish you the best of luck with this!
Since you signed a 'Transaction Broker' contract for a specific property it would normally be no problem depending on the precise language and provisions of the contract. There may be a problem with you going back to the original property now with a different agent. This may be addressed in the contract. The other issue is the expiration date of the contract and what additional provisions may have been made for this particular property if you did go back to it. I would suggest you have a sit down with a real estate attorney to make sure that you are clear on what to expect. This is another good example of many good reasons why a buyer needs a to have a solid Buyer Broker Agreement with one agent teamed up with you and looking out for your best interests. I hope it all works out.
