What a disappointment. As you can read from the responses of all my collegues, we all take this a bit pesonally. In the future, this will most likely be YOUR 'defining moment' of a real estate professional. And nothing is further from the truth regarding those professionals who have dedicated their lives to helping owners sell and buyers purchse homes.
Whenever I've encountered such obvious contradictry behavior, time has revealed there is so much more taking place in that individuals life and that my judgement made me truly lose sleep. Always choose kindness. You simply can not know ......
The correct response is to turn towards your agent. You set a meet up date, at the agents office with the manager or broker in attendance. As Alicia hinted, you will be pleasantly surprised that gracious, non-judgemental, transparent communitions solve so many issues. Even if you choose to go different paths. you will still be friends. It is amazing how turning towards changes a perspective.
Best of success to you,
