David has the best answer. Your agent should be able to set you up with automatic emails of listings from the MLS. These emails will come to you immediately when properties that fit your needs are listed. Most agents that I know will provide their buyers with this service. The buyers receive all of the desired listings from all of the companies in the MLS as soon as they are listed. In Lorain County things must work differently from the way they work in Columbus as described by another broker below. Your agent should not be giving you only their own listings or only those of their brokerage. You should be able to get all the listings from all of the MLS member companies.
