Hang in there, and I wish you all the best. Buying and selling real estate can be very emotional for most people and a lot of patience and skill is required from all parties involved. Working with a professional Realtor that communicates with you effectively can make all the difference. Give me a call or email anytime if I can be of service to you.

Do not trust everything people are saying. Wait for a written offer.....ask for a feedback and you will know better what is happening. Good luck!
But, as a result, I do know that talk is very cheap. Show me the money; show me a written contract. Anything short of that is meaningless and a waste of time.

This behavior is quite common! So.... We don't recognize offers
as" Real" until Offers are Signed,Acceptable deposit recieved, all
appropriate "proofs"and /or representations presented! Unfortuneately
in todays world-verbal commitments can't be counted on!!
Best Advice: Never depend on "word" alone! Good Buyers are the
first to recognize the importance of a "Formal" offer ASAP. !
Experience can be the best teacher-Hopefully al who read this
can benefit from yours! Don't be negative-just firm and you'll be OK!
" Nothing written-Nothing gained"!

This is not uncommon. As a listing agent, nearly 40% of verbal offers (meaning a buyer or their agents says the buyer is going to make an offer) do not materialize into a written offer.
A real estate professional is stuck with a conflict.
Does the agent advise the seller of every 'verbal' indicated or protect the buyer by only presenting or advising of offers presented via a formal contract.
What ever choice the agent makes they will be blamed.
In comments such as your question.
Or in accusations the agent is withholding offers.
Have a chat with your agent and advise your agent if you DO or DO NOT want to have your chain jerked everytime an insincere buyer says, "I'm thinking of making an offfer" or "What's the lowest they will take?" or "Can I submit an verbale offfer?" or "Will the owner rent with option?".....you see the list goes on and on and on and on.
