Best bet - talk to the agent (if this does not go well) contact an attorney.
Hope all goes well for you. Many agents understand the sellers situations andd will do as you request.
Life changes - and when it does, we have to adjust. Good luck!

It sounds like you are either concerned about your agent's reaction because of something that happened in the past or you just feel uncomfortable in situations where you don't know how another person will react. But, regardless, you really should have an honest conversation with the agent very soon. The agent probably is spending time and money trying to sell your house. This being the case, it would be very unfair leave the agent in the dark. If you find it hard to talk in person, just use the phone.
