Bill is spot on in his response. As a listing agent, I am always impressed when a buyer is honest with me and lets me know they are working with another agent. If you were my buyer, I would want you to do the same. Most listing agents honor the buyer / buyer's agent relationship. They would rather know now, before they take the time and make the effort to show you the property (thinking you might work with them if this property does not work out), rather than after they spend time with you. It is obvious that you know this instinctively, or you would not be asking the question.
At this time, just let your agent know what you did. They will most probably be willing to contact the listing agent on your behalf. They will also be very impressed with your honesty. Good luck in finding the house you really like. Dare to Dream.
