Security deposit

I need some advice. We put a $650 security deposit down on an apartment recently then the next day we found something we liked much better and signed a contract on that one. The owner of the 1st apartment happens to be an attorney and he was going to write the contract but never did. The realtor has stopped taking our calls and says it's between us and the owner to try and get the refund. I never met the owner and don't even know his name. I'm going to email the realtor again to try and get that information. Has anyone else been in this situation before? What can I do to get our money back? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
