"MrsWilliamsn" seems you have two issues here...
First: Earnest funds: the contract you presented outlines the circumstances in which a buyer can get earnest funds back. You should go over the contract you signed with your agent. If the circumstances (which you did not state in your initial question) fall under acceptable conditions to have funds returned, your agent will need to give a specific form to the holding agency to get the funds back.
Second: What you are looking for is a "Buyers Agent". All agents have the option of signing a Buyer's Agent Agreement with their client. It then affords the client an agent that will represent only their interest and not the seller's. Some agents have chosen to specifically be only a Buyer's Agent and just represent the buyer. You can check with a local firm or with the local real estate board to find a certified Buyer's Agent.
Third: You can purchase a home in your name only....it may also depend on the personal circumstances you are currently in. Again, you are not specific about why you want to do that,,, but you can purchase in your own name provided your credit and all other necessary aspects to do so are in order.
Hope this helped!
