Right to represent buyer contract lists property- does it bind to only that property?

We are in Connecticut, and we were working with an agent we were marginally satisfied with and put an offer in on a house.  When filling out the binder contract we also signed an "Exclusive right to represent a buyer contract" that listed the property address under the line, "We (buyers)... appoint you (broker firm)... as my/our exclusive representative to assist me/us to locate and purchase or exchange real property acceptable to me/us and generally described as: ...[specific property address]"  We were outbid and our offer was not accepted and now we would like to pursue a relationship with a new agent.  Does this contract only apply to the house for which our offer was not accepted? Any info appreciated, thanks. PS the contract was for 90 days

In PA that contract was for 90 days for that specific house.  Email the agent and ask for clarification if you have any doubt as to the meaning.

In my state, that would meant you are not bound to this broker on any other properties but only the specifically named one. However, you will need to check with a local broker or attorney in your state to make sure.
