I think you contacted me recently about one of my listings as well.
If you will visit my website you can search the mls VIA A LINK AND i CAN SHOW YOU ANY OF THE PROPERTY LISTED AND REPRESENT YOU AS WELL. i HANDLE aTHENS AND A 30 MILE RADIUS IN ALL DIRECTIONS.
However, the MLS databases that agents have access to are supposed to be kept current, and agents are strongly encouraged to do so or possibly face fines. Generally, agents comply very well.
The general public does not have access to these sites because they contain proprietary client information.
Unfortunately the listing will not be removed until it actually closes. You can avoid some of this frustration by working with a REALTOR. When we look the home up in our databases we are notified whether the home is pending sale (under contract) or not. I will be happy to assist if if you would like.
