Then your agent should definitely have their broker involved.

The broker your agent works for is your broker...and your buyer has a broker...and it shouldn't matter.

If you have any questions/concerns that your agent can't address, do contact your agent's broker owner and or office manager in order to make sure the transaction is completed properly.

Many years ago I was in the same situation like your agent. I completed the transaction because my sellers were buying a bigger house, and my dispute with another agent could put another transaction at risk. The buyer's agent most likely deliberately instructed his/her clients to ask your agent to show your house. If your agent had them sign a consumer notice there might be a chance for him or her to dispute the commission later if both agents are members of NAR, because your agent was a procuring cause of this transaction. Anyway, you should move ahead with this transaction and your agent would learn how to deal in such situations in the future. You also may consider asking your agent’s broker to get involved because your interests should be on the first place. Good luck!

Have you discussed this with your realtor? It definitely is a valid concern and should be addressed.

It should be all about serving you and your needs as a seller. They need to move on and get over the potential buyer situation. No commission is worth having an unsatisfied client.

So sorry to hear this story.....

Relax, Just think of the broker as an agent with management skills as well and expect a smooth transaction
