My realtor and listing agent are in the same office. The listing agent keeps saying I should find houses that are not hers. We have the down payment and all. She tells people I am a risk and not to take offer. She will even refuse to give my realtor the code to a house.
Take these facts to a lawyer's office. Something is seriously wrong if a listing agent in a brokerage you ware working with is telling people you are a risk. If your realtor is telling you the listing agent says this, I would question whether the realtor is telling you the truth.
