How exactly did the agent "lie"? There are many reasons why a home doesn't close as planned. I wrote a blog post about this very subject a few weeks ago. Check it out.

It is very unusual for an attorney to allow an "on or before" date. Please contact your attorney and look again at your contract.

Unfortunately, most Realtors have a tendency to back out of active participation once an attorney has been engaged.

Call your attorney!

Without much information, it may not necessarily be your agent's fault; if there is a loan involved it's possible the lender caused some of the delays; consider having a discussion with your agent....

I'm trying to understand where the lie comes in. Did they tell you that it would close on Feb 22? Typically the buyers and sellers attorney set the date with the consent of buyer and seller.

There are many obstacles that stop a loan from closing on time. If the agent has lied to you then that is wrong. But sometimes we as agents have to keep everybody calm. There are many problems that arise in a real estate deal that agents can not control.

If the buyer's mortgage company is slow, or the buyer is having problems with the mortgage then your agent can do nothing about it. All they can do is stay on top of it and relay you the information. Many times mortgages take longer and closings are delayed. Have a sit down with your agent to get to the bottom of it. Many times the agent is being told the "lie" from the other agent or mortgage company and is just relaying it on to you

It is possible that you are correct, but there is not nearly enough information in your statement to form an opinion

Buying and selling a home can be complex and frustrating.
Often this complex process is referred to as the 100 wheels on the wagon. Any one failed wheel can bring the process to a halt. Wobbly wheels can complicate and delay the process.

Their is little likelihood your agent misrepresented or lied to you. It is very likely you have selective hearing. Most certainly, you did not ask enough questions to understand what the possible outcomes could be. If you do not ask questions you can not possibly know the truth.

When things are not going right, finding someone to blame is natural.
When things take to long, placing the cause on someone else is natural.
When we realize what we thought was true is not so....it's never the fault of the hearer (we want to believe)

Your agent, if you are respectful in your conversation, will share with you what has happened and what is currently in process. Your agent can share with you what your options are right now and the consequences of those actions. If you do not ask, and instead go to the 'internet' to troll for support, in all likelihood, you are not seeking understanding or solutions, but retribution.

That will not serve you well.

Understand that the solutions are right where you are, not on the internet.
Now is the time to have a honest, respectful and purposeful conversation with your agent, with or without their broker. Communication accomplishes marvelous things. The injection of vitriol, as your statement includes, will accomplish little.

I take offense to you attacking me when you only know part of the problem (150 characters or less). Obviously you have made your mind up so there is no need in trying to communicate with you.
Thank You
