Can anyone help on this one? Wanting to fly from Bankgok to Siem Reap one way.
The advertised flights on Internet all seem a bit exorbitant. Is it possible to arrange flight in Bangkok through local agents and is the price cheaper than those advertised on the net?

Unfortunately it's an expensive route -- largely due to the monopoly that Bangkok Airways has. Buying through an agent in Thailand/Cambodia will not be any cheaper as far as I know.
The only way to bring down the cost is to get a Discovery Airpass, but you need to be doing three regional flights to make that worthwhile -- see the Bangkok Airways website for more information.
other alternative is the minibus to siem riep, long day but very cheap. Actually about a 7 hour journey but they normally take longer so that you arrive at night and stay at the hotel where they get commission. OR fly to Phnom Phen, a fantastic city, stay a few days and take the boat up to Siem riep........you will be glad that you did.
