In this market no need to succumb to any pressure or game tactics.

If the property is priced fairly buyer's will come and the seller can just disregard the potentially foul-playing buyer.

If you are questioning the ethics or conduct of a realtor prior to accepting an offer, and you have a bad feeling about it, go with your gut and seek other offers.

This doesn't happen often but it is a result of a Realtor needing to close a deal to pay their bills. Look to use a Realtor with another source of income be it another job or a supportive spouse.

Also educated Realtors know not to answer legal questions that can get them, their broker or their clients into trouble.

You need not do a thing. Your agent should contact the buyer's agent and streighten it out,if proven wrong doing, with intent to mislead, you could cancel the sale, or write a new contract, all should always be in writing.

You do not say what your part is in this post. If you are the seller, I am assuming that you are represented by a Realtor. if that is the case then it sounds as though the buyer's agent made an offer presentation and in that presentation you think they presented misleading information. Was the information accurate? Was it truthful? I think that from the ethics standpoint Realtors are supposed to be strong advocates for their clients, but honest advocates. It it was not honest then there is an ethics issue.

Your profile says homebuyer. So if your Realtor presented information to a seller in the context of presenting an offer, same questions apply. I routinely use MLS data and other information to help sellers understand why we made the offer that we did. Accuracy is important, but even more important is interpretation of the the data. Again, if the data is not truthful, there may be an ethics issue. Make sure that you understand what the Realtor was trying to convey. If necessary youcan complain to the Realtort's broker, and also the local association of Realtors.

Who is the cast of characters, and what did the realtor do? Are you the buyer? The seller? The other agent? The answer to your question is you can talk to their broker.

I would first go to the agent themself and note it in your communication log. If you do not get satisfaction from the agent, go to their broker manager.
