After having first made a good faith attempt to resolve the issue or disagreement at hand, and having been unsuccessful in doing so, simply send a notice in writing that you would like to termintate the agreement. In your case, and depending on the situation you may be subject to paying any marketing fees and costs to date before the Broker will agree to termination.
Answers that say you should fire you agent in writing are incomplete and wrong, at least in California. I suspect that is true in any state because your agreement with your Realtor is a contract. A contract is an agreement between two parties and one party cannot unilaterally cancel the contract. If the real estate law in Georgia is similar to that in California, and I have no idea if it is, the contract is actually between you (the seller) and the Broker of the real estate company. If you are unhappy with your Realtor and that person is a sales agent who is working for the Broker, talk to the Broker and discuss your options. The Broker will want to retain your business and may assign your listing to another agent.
If the Broker is your Realtor, you still need to talk to that person. Express your dissatisfaction. Perhaps you can continue with the relationship if your Broker has a better understanding of your disappointment and your opinion of the Brokerâ€™s failings. A new sense of dedication of the part of the Broker may be possible.
If the relationship is totally broken, ask for a release from your contract. It doesnâ€™t do the Broker much good to hold an unhappy client to a listing contract.
As others have commented, you may be liable for fees to the Broker. Make sure you are clear on the issue, also.
Sorry to hear you're unhappy, best of luck to you!
As it is compelling on Realtors to be ethical and educated, we also demand fairness from our prospects, customers and clients.
I hope you have better results on the next try!
True, in writing. Especially after you have tried all you can to discuss lapses and deficiencies.
Most Brokers will re-assign you to another Realtor in that office that may suite your expectation.
It needs to be done with care if you have a purchase contract with this Realtor. You may be better off to endure it to the end (my opinion.)
