I want to contact the seller directly to see if they even saw our offer on a new purchase. Our real

I don't care if I have to pay the commission - I just want the house.  What can I do?

This is not directly addressing what the buyer in this situation should do but I just want to say I hear this story all to often and I want this buyer to know that just like the other Realtors that have responded with knowledge and concern there are more like us out there so don't get discourage or disappointed in Realtors because of this situation.  I advise you to take the advise of the responses you received and move on to someone that will assist you in your real estate needs..be blessed in your home search and beyond..

If you aren't happy with the level of communication or service, you need to call the managing broker, like the other posters said.   So you sat down recently with this agent and wrote and signed an offer for a home (regular sale, REO, or short sale?), and now the agent won't return your phone calls or let you know what is going on? I'm sorry that you are facing this frustration. Please let us know how things turn out.

If you have a buyer agency agreement with a Realtor and he is not returning your calls, contact the principal of the office and request action.  You may want to change agents, ask the principal broker to put you in touch with another agent who can perform better.

It's too bad that your agent is not promptly communicating with you, I don't know your specific situation, but there are rules governing the submission of the offer. You should contact the office broker of the Real Estate company the agent works for letting them know your concern. Brokers are responsible for the transactions as well and should help you resolve your concern.
Hope things work out for you.

we have a purchase agreement signed saying this agent will represent us, but he's not returning our calls & he's never in the office.

In an attempt to raise your trust in your real estate agent:  he/she are governed by the National Association of Realtors (if they are a member of NAR), the state in which they practice their profession (the state department of licensing), the state board of NAR and the county board of NAR and the company that they work for.
All of the above mentioned agencies require that the agent submit the offer that you have made.
If you ever have questions about the behavior of your agent, talk to their managing broker who is also responsible for everything that the agent does.
Either you learn to trust your agent just a little bit or you find another one.

Are the sellers represented by a Realtor? Are you? Talk to your Realtor and see if he/she can negotiate an extension.
