Town or Country, in Colorado, we do it all.

Welcome!  The agent who does that, in my opinion is wirse than the client.  He should notify you immediatleyand discuss how the BOTH of you should handle the situation.

Hi Isti,

Is the buyer really a client ( that you are representing, possibly with a contract) or are they just a customer... a buyer who is interested in a property that you have shown them?  The reason I ask is that if they are under a client level buyer broker agreement they could be breeching the terms of your agreement.

Either way, I would call them on it and ask why they feel the need to by pass you...are they unhappy with you or are they opportunists that think they may get the property for less if they try to cut you out?

I think that you need to address it with them and explain your role in being their agent and clear the air...

Good Luck,

Eve in Orlando

Good day all,


Thank you for the inputsJ


The buyer is client, signed broker agreement, and fully executed. Complaining said, “ You can’t even negotiates 50% bellow what seller’s asked for. I am done and not worth paying you as buyer for any effort. Thanks anyway!”  


Well, seller was willing to take 25% bellow what asked, and I know property will appraise 45% above the market.


I been selling real estate for nearly 12yr and for the first time I deal with this situation. I pray this will be the time.:(.
