It might be awkward to tell your friend's sister that you might be using someone else, but this is a very big purchase. You can't afford to make a mistake. BTW, I rarely use an agent when buying. It's just easier to get a better deal if you negotiate directly with the seller....especially if they are motivated to sell.
