I made a written offer on a property on 5 Jan. The sellers countered in writing on 6 Jan.The REA never advised me that my offer had been countered. A Home Open was held on 9 Jan. An offer was made by a different buyer and the offer accepted. I did not know the home was sold until I wrote a Letter of Complaint to the REA. A copy of the Contract [my offer and the sellers counter offer] was only emailed to me today after I requested this. My question is, because I made a signed offer and the sellers made a signed counter offer was there not a legal contract between us? Is the agent not in breach of this contract by selling to another buyer given he had not made me aware of counter offer? I had not been provided by an opportunity to respond to counter offer.

Thank you to anyone who can advise me on this please.
Many thanks
