I have a "real estate etiquette" question. I reached out to an agency and a realtor responded. She showed us two houses on Saturday. I understand that if we decide to buy one of those two houses, she's the agent who showed it and I have no problem with her getting that commission. However, neither of us was impressed with her and we don't really want to work with her going forward unless we buy the house we saw on Saturday. We have several other properties we would like to see. What are the "rules" for approaching another agent? We didn't sign anything with her. She just lined up two showings for us. Please advise.

You do not owe that agent anything and you can buy either of those two house using any agent you feel comfortable with regardless of whether you sign a buyer agreement or not.

Now go and find an agent you feel comfortable with. Their knowledge of the area and real estate pitfalls should be the #1 requirement.

Thanks for the feedback. She seemed like a very nice person, but neither of us feel like she is the right fit. It's important to me that we don't upset the area realtors right out of the gate!

Hi, hopefully you found an agent you like to work with. Can you tell us what it was about the agent you didn't think worked for you? I'm always interested in learning about what works and doesn't work with people. Thank you!
