If "your realtor"is the listing broker then you do not have a realtor! The agent is representing the seller and an agent cannot serve two masters.

You have a person who is looking to do the best job possible for his client. He owes you honesty in his dealing. The agent does however,have a real burning desire to get a deal done on this house. No deal,no commission.

Resubmit your offer and demand to be at the presentation;you have that right. Show the seller the comparable sales in the area and move your offer while you are face to face. When you're reached the max and no deal results,walk away and know you've done your best.

Also, try and find out,from the agent,what else the buyer wants i.e. timing,the magnolia in the front yard etc. Maybe somthing else,besides money,will move them. Also,be prequalified for the deal from your bank/mortgage company.

Good luck,get in there and take the scalp!

A 41 year broker.
