Agent Quit But We Want to Make Another Offer on a Property

We met with an Agent twice to look at a total of 7 or 8 properties. We decided to put an offer on one, which was not accepted, as was our second offer. The agent (we had no contract with her) got upset with us and our concern that, based on the houses sold within the past year in that area, the house wasn't going to appraise for much more than our "final" offer. However, we were offering the amounts she suggested. She sent us an email saying she didn't think she was the agent for us and good luck in our home-buying process. However, we want to make a last offer to the homeowners of this property. Our previous offers via the agent were turned down, she quit, so now what? Will we be able to work with someone else to put in a new offer or should we contact the listing agent? We're in Florida. We are pre-approved and have signed no contracts - other than what we signed when we made the first offer to the homeowners/listing agent. Which, again, was turned down. THEN our agent quit.

May people are telling you to contact the listing agent.  That is OK but remember she does NOT represent you.  

You can easily find another agent to represent you.

Contact your former agent's broker.  His/her phone number should be listed.  It might be labeled "office, main, or broker."  Ask him/her to assign you another agent.

Work with either the listing agent or get a good referral for another agent, I am sure there are many who would love to help you write an offer on a property.

You could contact the listing agent, or, better yet, find another agent you want to work with (talk to your friends/family for referrals) and then tell that agent the entire story. She may need you to sign a buyer's agency agreement to make a legal break from when your previous representation stopped and her's started.  She should be able to write up an offer, although there may be some eventual fall out between the two agents (your old one and the new one).  If so, as long as you have told your new agent everything and you save your old email, your new agent should be able to work things out pretty easily.

Good luck!
