Often the feedback will help you see your house through a buyer's eyes and then you can help your agent with the the sale of your home. I had a listing that was "picture perfect". It was in a lovely neighborhood, but it was next to a canal with a huge metal thing on both sides of the canal. That canal and the huge piece of metal kept coming. The canal couldn't be moved so I suggested that the seller plant a row of bushes to distract potential buyers' eyes. It worked and the property sold shortly after that.
If you aren't getting the type of service you want I suggest you cancel your contract with your agent and find one that will provide you with what you want.
I also always return calls to give other agents my feedback or fill out email surveys.
This business is all about hustling and the more you hustle the better business you provide to your clients and in return help the market around you.
and I must say...200-400 showings a month?????? that's not an agent, that's a corporation!
If someone shows one of my listings, I consider it rude not to share feedback (return my call or email) - the seller is entitled to know what those buyers thought - feedback can help form what future actions you might take with a listing (if you keep hearing the price is a turn off or the carpet or something else that you can control, it is very helpful)........if I show a home, I am more than happy to return the favor, and let the listing agent know what my buyers thought. it's part of the job, in my opinion.

I stop doing feed back yearrrrsssss ago, as a busy agent on property 200 -400 times a month heck I am lucky I can remember my own name than a property my client had not interest in. If you think about a busy agent addressing 200 -400 properties per month the amount of time vested give feedback and catalog each property. As a listing agent we instruct our owners if don't "hunt down feedback" we welcome it if a buyers agent would address the email.
"STRAW broke camels back" ... when I gave a feedback on a property and the owner did not like it , had a conference with listing agent and their broker, who contacted myself and my broker to agrue over the feedback... 40 hours later of my time .... that was last one I ever gave.

If so, agents may be reluctant to share negative feedback directly with an owner. it's uncomfortable to tell someone why their client didn't like their home.,
If you are asking why agents don't give YOUR agent feedback...well, sometimes the agents just don't bother to call back or respond to an email. I find it rude when that happens, as I always share feedback when asked.
If , however, you are expecting agents to call you back with feedback, instead of your agent, that's not usually done.
