Probably because you've tried to stalk them on FB maybe?

Why worry about things you'll never get a reason for. Say next & get on with your job.

I've had that happen only once... when they insisted on making too low an offer on a home, which I told them would lose them the home and it did. Of course, then they were mad at me... in situations like this let it go... as often as not these are not truly motivated buyers/sellers or those that will make your life a living hell.

I don't know but, I would probably think that they decided to shoot themselves in the foot and go with the listing agent!  

I haven't had a client drop me but, I surely do get a ton of calls from buyers thinking I'm the listing agent - and they don't listen to ANY advice about representation and having someone work in THEIR best interest!  ;-)

Dance a jig! I've only been dropped by a few clients because I changed my policies and they didn't like the change. It would have made them more money, but I didn't mind that they left because they were time suckers!

Move on to the next.  Clients are finicky.  I've had buyers leave their agent for me and then three months later stop returning my calls.  Like a summer's breeze they come and go.

 I don't know.  It has never happened.  On the converse, I have dropped a few clients because they were time-robbers, or they were unrealistic.
