For an accurate answer, do ask your agent the question and then go from there--is the property on MLS......

This seems odd, but it could be that your REALTOR® has requested to be present at all showings which could give the illusion that they are the only one showing the property. Please understand: you hired your REALTOR® to sell your home. That doesn't mean that they just market it. It should mean that they are actively looking for people who may be interested in purchasing a property like yours in order to find a buyer. If you said it was "ok" for your REALTOR® to practice dual agency, then your REALTOR® will increase the size of his commission by finding a buyer themselves. Think of it as added incentive for your REALTOR® to find an able and willing buyer for your property. So, if your property is being marketed (signage, MLS, etc) and your REALTOR® is doing more showings than anyone else... maybe their just doing thier job.

Hm, How do you know that these are all buyer clients of YOUR listing agent?

But if that is actually true, then why not ask your listing agent, he or she should have a good explanation for it,
right? If I were that listing agent, I would know why......

Now it may be that your property is not listed everywhere, but if listed and put on the multiple listing service
in North Carolina, all Realtors should have access to your home, but they may not have buyers????

May be your listing agent is very creative in following up with his/her own potential buyers?

I am not sure, but your listing agent is really the only one who would give you a true answer! Sit down
and discuss it, and ask where on the internet your property is advertised, although your listing agent
may have told you at the time of listing how he/she will advertise and market your home...

Open communication with your listing agent is really the best approach!
Take care and good luck!

If that's the case, that would be an exception to the rule.
Check to see that your property is listed on your local MLS and other on-line locations such as Trulia.com, Realtor.com, Zillow.com, etc.
Make sure that the information and pictures are correct and that your listing can easily be found.
So if you're property is competitively priced and marketed, this should help.
Also, do you have a "For Sale" sign on your property?
