Hello again, Bridgette
You may already be aware of how agents work with clients and customers in Colorado, but I wanted to mention it just in case our rules are different than New Hampshire. The listing agent has an agreement with the Seller and if you are interested in the property and work with the listing agent, they will be working with you as a Transaction Broker - in other words, the agent will not be an advocate for you. If you can find a Buyer's Agent to assist you, they can help you with negotiating, presenting offers, inspection issues, etc. and look out for your best interest...be an advocate for you.
I wish you all the best!
