The Commission worries about matters involving Licensees and the General Public . . . . not squabbles among REALTORSŪ !

no doubt, thanks for the correction!

OP here. The hearing has taken place and the grievance committee has concluded no violation has taken place. Quite a brilliant group there.

if you have a signed BRA or buyer representation agreement which is what we call it in Ontario and other agent doesn't have one signed, then it would be difficult for the other listing agent to prove anything. buyers move from one open house to another in the neighbourhood and just attending one open house doesn't mean the prospective buyers are the clients of the listing agent. one buyer can already be under signed BRA with an agent and attend other listing agent's open house which is perfectly OK.

From your statement the buyers liked the house they saw before they meet you and not liking the listing agent aside; if you didn't recommend the house to them and/or show it to them again before writing the contract, her claim to being the procuring cause of the sale is correct. She can claim that without visiting her open house the buyers would not have know about her listing and you would not have had the opportunity to write an offer in the first place. That might be an issue for you. Especially if your board uses lock boxes that can track user access and can provide time/date reports through their system.

I wish you the best. I hope it works out but good or bad take it as a learning experience and grow!
