Buyers brokers strategy when you’re 1h30 away.

I’m not upstate and I’ve been searching for a home upstate (NY). The homes don’t last on the market very long – I can usually visit them on the weekends and only rarely during the week. Since I live 1.5 hrs away.

Broker #1 I used for half a year, a couple of times she met up with me with a pre-existing list of houses to visit. After a month or two of this, she set up automated listings. One day, I found something and had an accepted offer, but walked away after inspection. I felt that the broker was turned off after that, de-prioritizing me.

Since then Broker #1 just sends me automated listings. When something appeals to me (rarely), I try to jump on it but it’s hard to get Broker #1 to spend time to either preview the property or to meet me on the weekends; also they rarely respond directly to my questions or soon.

I decided I needed a Broker #2 which would be more aggressive in previewing stuff for me / videoing it if it’s intra-week and I can’t get there before the weekend. However, broker 2 works alone, no assistants or partners, and has their own investments and is often unavailable weekends.

It’s heating up and I want to pounce. Are my expectations unreasonable (an aggressive buyer broker), or do I need to find someone and sign a contract with them?

I want to really be visiting stuff every weekend, make more aggressive offers and in general I know exactly what I’m looking for now since l last summer.

Not sure if any agents (or other folks in a similar boat) have opinions here.
