I'm sorry to hear of your troubles. Unfortunate that this is sometimes the case. I would suggest, that since you are in a lease agreement, you do your best to work things out with your landlord. If this becomes a feutal attempt, you would first need to find out what (if any) the possible consequences would be if you were to break the lease.
Your agent may have suggested that you consult legal counsel prior to signing a lease, as it is a legal contact between tenant and landlord. If not, now would be a good time to consider asking for legal advice.
Once any potential consequences were determined, you could approach your real estate agent and ask for assistance in finding another rental. If you feel your agent expressly treated you in an inappropriate, unethical or illegal way, again, you should discuss this with an attorney and ask if you have any recorse.
Hope this is helpful.

The agent has no control over decisions your landlord makes. But if he or she misrepresented some aspect of your rental, maybe you need to give him a call. But your lease says it all.
