I had an offer on my house. The buyer broke contract by neglecting to try and get a loan. We could have extended it but decided to keep the house. Now realtor is trying to sue me for commission. Can he do that?

Probably, though it may depend on precisely why the buyer didn't get a loan right away and on what your contract with the realtor says.
The realtor's job was to find a buyer who was willing and able to pay your asking price (or another price you were willing to accept). That's what he did. By your own admission, you could have gone through with the sale but changed your mind. You're entitled to do that, but he's still entitled to be paid as long as he performed his duties under the contract.
