Hello. My name is***** am an attorney. I will review your question. I may need to clarify facts first. I will answer & we can discuss issues.
If you signed a contract with the agent and the agent is representing you as the buyer, the agent is to work in the best interest of you, not in the best interest of the agent because the agent has a fiduciary duty to you. So, the agent should present your increased offer. If the agent is the seller's agent, and there as a written contract with the seller's agent regarding the retainer money, you would first look at the written document and whether it addresses the issue. If not, then if there were other documents to support your position that would be helpful. We can continue to discuss your situation if you would like to do so.
