What a disappointment. As you can read from the responses of all my collegues, we all take this a bit pesonally. In the future, this will most likely be YOUR 'defining moment' of a real estate professional. And nothing is further from the truth regarding those professionals who have dedicated their lives to helping owners sell and buyers purchse homes.
Whenever I've encountered such obvious contradictry behavior, time has revealed there is so much more taking place in that individuals life and that my judgement made me truly lose sleep. Always choose kindness. You simply can not know ......
The correct response is to turn towards your agent. You set a meet up date, at the agents office with the manager or broker in attendance. As Alicia hinted, you will be pleasantly surprised that gracious, non-judgemental, transparent communitions solve so many issues. Even if you choose to go different paths. you will still be friends. It is amazing how turning towards changes a perspective.
Best of success to you,

You might end up having to wait out the 6 weeks regardless but at least something like this won't happen to someone else.
Contact me anytime!
Just by sending another email to the Agent and his boss you can terminate the agreement due to the fact that they do not return the emails or phone calls. Just make sure that you keep copy of this emails in your folder. Next, you can send a certified letter to the local board of realtors communicating them about a possible breach of contract.
Consider giving the broker a while to respond to your request before sending a certified letter to the local board of realtors expressing information about a possible ethics violation.
There's always "two sides to any story." It may take a few days for the broker to collect the information needed to get back to you. One thing is for sure.....you will get a response from someone in the event you need to contact the local board.
