I have been working on a short sale deal the past 4 months on a 1.8 million dollar home. Because of my short sale submission to the lender, I saved the home owner from a foreclosure. In the mean time, I executed a TREC Real Estate contract for purchase and sale of the house, which i filled out with the home owner, and his Real Estate agent. So i have a Valid contract to purchase the house..... In the meantime, I am still waiting to hear back from the bank, and have got extremely close to getting the bank to accept my offer. NOW... PLEASE READ THIS AND GIVE ME SUGGESTIONS.... The Real Estate agent in the meantime, has gone behind my back, and found a buyer for the house ( Which is actually my END BUYER ) and has executed another purchase and sale contract on the house COMPLETELY IGNORING what I had done, and totally "Over Ridden" my contract, and now is about to close this other deal within a week. I believe that what she has done, is totally illegal, and this has totally ruined this deal for me. There was a minimum of $450k to be made here, and now im left with absolutley nothing, apart from the fact that i have to pay my negotiator $2000, and I saved this person from a foreclosure... im left with nothing.... I want to sue her, but I need expert opinions..
