You should use the Realtor that you think does the best job for you. As a member of the real estate community, obviously we would love it if none of our clients ever left us. At the same time, you are making an important decision, and you need to feel comfortable with the professional you work with. Losing time is not an issue because you can search with your agent, and you two can rule out ones you've already seen. There are thousands of Realtors that would love the opportunity to help you right now. Let us know if we can help you.
Based on the information you provided I would guess that your realtor is feeling your desperation and acting on it. None of the problems you have mentioned are a result of realtor error. Maybe a little research could have been done prior to going through the contract phase but if you are in a hurry maybe your agent is feeling it too. Buying a home is not something you should do with a time constraint. It may be better to put your things in storage and rent a place while you continue to search for the property to buy. A cash purchase is the shortest closing and can be done as soon as the paper work is completed - I have seen this turn around in two weeks. The purchase of a distressed property can take up to 180 days. The standard time for a non-distressed property and obtaining a mortgage is at least 45 days. Taking all of those time frames into consideration - renting for a while may be the answer for now.Talk things over with your realtor and develop a clear strategy to proceed.
My question is "have you had a heart-to-heart talk with your current agent"? Does he know you're feeling frustrated? If so, what is he doing about it, is he trying? Are you willing to hang in there with him? If so, then it's a matter of getting on to the same page when it comes to what type of properties to look at and how to submit the best offer you can to minimize any more wasting of time.
