Help the community by answering this question:


Why are you cancelling?

If you no longer want to sell, they can "withdraw your listing". Contract is in force, but home is not on the market.

If you want to use another broker, you'll need to explain why.

If you are unable to negotiate a release, you can postpone the sale until the listing expires by asking your Realtor to "withold" the listing.

IMHO it is best to be honest.

My colleagues are all giving you good advice. Most of the time the broker will allow you out of the listing contract. No one wants bad publicity or unhappy clients. However, the broker will want to know the reason as to why. If you don't believe that your Realtor is performing up to his/her side of the deal then you will want to let the broker know this. If you haven't talked to your Realtor about this, then definitely do so. A problem can't be fixed if they don't know there is one. Please feel free to ask any questions or contact me personally at truvaluerealty@gmail.com Thanks and Good luck!!

What has caused you to change your mind? If it is the level or quality of service that is being provided to you, you might want to approach the agent's broker about the issues. One of three things could happen:

1. your concerns may be ignored

2. the broker may get the action you are looking for

3. the broker may allow you out of the contract w/o penalty

Good luck

It all depends on your listing CONTRACT with the broker, not the agent. Some have cancellation fees, some do not. Why do you want to cancel with your Realtor? Do you thing someone else could do a better job? Did you decide not to sell? These answers may come into play when you talk to the broker.

Contact their broker if you change your mind you should be able cancel the agreement . Up to broker release you out of contract not the agent.

NOTE: Almost 100% of time brokers will allow seller cancel based on executed listing agreement.
