Frequency is something agreed to between you and your agent. If she has not gotten back to you there is a problem. As previously stated, are you a client or a customer? A client has a written representation agreement. A customer is a prospective client.
Sometimes contact is daily, sometimes once per week. It depends on your schedule and the timeline you have communicated to your agent.
If you are not happy with the current situation, please contact the agent. Discuss the issue. She may be oblivious to your position. Her experience level in real estate may be a factor too.
YOU are in the driver's seat. Real estate agents work for the client, not the other way around.

If you feel comfortable with the agent you have been talking to, then I would open up a dialogue with her and ask her what steps you need to take to start the buying process. Whatever questions you have you should ask. If you don't feel comfortable with her, I would find another agent....ask your friends, family, co-workers who they used. Education & Communication are 2 VERY important keys when buying or selling real estate.
Best of luck!
Auto email is a tool that can be used to automatically have an email update sent via the MLS with listings that are new or changed (ie price improvements) that meet your criteria.
The point made earlier regarding Mortgage Preapproval is a good one - for your benefit. With that done you will know your buying power so that your focus is clear and should be taken seriously by agents and sellers.
