If they can't even find the right house, just imagine how they could screw up the contracts, which could cost you thousands of dollars and just mess up the entire process. I would cut them loose before doing anything else.

All said and done, I'm sure it is done differently in each state. Do you, as a buyer, pay the commission in your state? If so, then you can split it between the two agents who showed the house to you. I think that is fair. Of course, if you don't buy a house they showed you, then they don't get anything. X% of nothing is nothing.

Didn't read all the threads but wanted to say to OP that I have had nothing but terrible - REALLY TERRIBLE - experiences. Lazy, lying (not disclosing that she was the agent for the buyer and the seller when asked about the buyer's agent), unprofessional (screaming at my DH on the phone, actually screaming) . . . .just total crap. I have had experiences with three realtors. When I tried to do it on my own by calling the listing agent to see the houses I would be asked if I was represented, and if not, I would get a total run around. Can't show until 2 weeks from now . . . or was told they would only show if I had a pre-qualification letter. Ridic.
That being said, my mom had a wonderful agent and she was worth her weight in gold. But this lady was a realtor b/c she loved real estate and homes, and she didn't need the money (was independently wealthy) so she kind of only showed certain types and prices of homes to a small number of people. But she was fantastic.
