I agree with prior posters. I would do the same thing if a client of mine decided to sell to a family member. But technically, your folks could be bound by the listing agreement. What they will need is an unconditional release, may require the broker/manager approval. Yes, have your parents talk to their agent. And I suggest that you reward the agent -- if she accommodated you -- with a referral down the road.
Deb's suggestion that your parents offer to pay out of pocket expenses that the agent incurred would be a nice gesture.
Good luck, to you,
