I am not under contract with my former agent, and I am pursuing a sale by owner. What should my former agent tell NEW buyers if contacted?
I think there is some missing context here but it sounds like your trying to push your guilt on to an agent who didn't get a buyer rep agreement. Shame on both of ya.

Old agent requesting referral fee from new agent?
Might need more details on why you are leaving him. Are you planning to buy one of the homes he showed you? Did you sign a buyer agreement to work with just him?

The last three sales in that area range from $966K up to $980K. They don't appear to have the updates this home has. Sutherland has only been on the market for less than 17 days ... more
