Realtor trying to weasel in a deal.

Been looking for about half a year. We we’re referred by a family member to go with a Realtor in Illinois. Fine, we’ll try him out. I should note I was a realtor years ago so I am quite familiar with it and my wife develops properties for low income housing, so she is also well versed. To go see homes, you need a Realtor so we started calling this guy when we found a house we wanted to see. We saw about 8 houses with him over the last 6 months. Every-time, he told us to buy it, the house was great and to offer over asking yadda yadda yadda. We figured did not feel comfortable with him at all. We found a new construction builder that he had no idea even existed and told him we would be going that route and we thought that was it. He asked to sit in on the meeting and he would offer us advice because he’s dealt with new construction. We figured, sure why not? So, we go to the meeting, he was already there. He sat in the meeting and offered no advice and just spoke about his kid the whole time we’re trying to talk about the house. Fast forward about a month, we drew up plans and decided to go with this builder. I told the realtor, hey were going with new construction and thanks for your time but we feel comfortable representing ourselves. We never signed a buyers agreement and he said no problem if you need advice just ask. We thought that was it. He then calls the selling agent and tells them he’s the procuring agent and is entitled to his commission (to the tine of 6k!). I was taken aback, as this is crazy to think he would be playing this game. Be wary out there some Realtors are not ethical or honest.
