Here is what COULD happen if everyone behaved as you did in this situation.
So you don't like the PC (procuring cause) agent and you decide to get another agent to submit the offer.
Now you have effectively betrayed PC agent AND put another agent in a situation where they will not be compensated for their effort. You have effectively toasted two agents! One through betrayal and the other by compromising the compensation agreement.
PC agent will be the ONLY agent eligible for contractual compensation, whom you don't want to work with, and another agent will be left with nothing but lint in their pocket due to your choices.
Now, you can make all of this go away by agreeing to compensate 'another' agent directly from your pocket for the work involved on your behalf. PC agent will be compensated by the seller as contractually agreed via the MLS.
The most likely outcome will be you do not buy the house and everyone's efforts are wasted.
However,as Bonnie White suggested, if PC agent and another agent were to have a telephone chat, something agreeable could be worked out. You should be prepared to directly compensate another agent. It's the right thing to do, if that means anything in Maryland.
Best of success to you,
