I would be happy to help if they decide to relist. You can give me a call to discuss if you like.

1. Is the Realtor doing a poor job at advertising?
2.Has the Realtor suggested the price the property should be listed at, and is it listed at or close to that price?
3. Are there similar properties in the same price range as yours?
4.Do you have to make an appointment to show or is there a lockbox?
5.Is the house shown in it's best possible light?
Now if most things above are being done lockbox,pricing right,lockbox,ads, then we'd have to say it's not the Realtor maybe it's just too many listings simalar to yours. Prehaps better pictures? or just a few thousand less on the price would be of a big help.
With all of the above being said and you're Parents are just not happy with the Realtor then by all means go to the Broker and get it cancelled. It's not hard and tell your Folks not to leave the office without a cancellation notice and make sure they read every line. We hear some offices may put in a clause that gives them the right to still collect a commission even after the contract has been cancelled so read read read..
As a suggestion if they can wait 30 days before relisting, look at Realtors websites or information and of course that personal feel about an agent before calling them to come over.
Remember it is not the office that sells your property it's the Agent!
All the very Best

I agree with Christine. It's always best to talk to the office manager and express your concerns. There could be many reasons for the lack of showings including the price, condition or location. If your parents do decide to cancel their contract, don't hesitate to contact me. I'd be willing to meet with them and discuss what went right (if any) and what went wrong and then come discuss my game plan to get their house SOLD.

I would talk to the office manager or owner / broker and see if you can resolve the situation. More than likely you would get help. If not please let me know and I will look into the situation for you..

What I suggest is have them sit down and talk with the Broker of Record about where and how the agent fell short. Is the agent not doing something they promised your parents? Just because there has only been one showing is not a reason to cancel a contract if the agent did everything they promised. If they over promised and under delivered... than there is something to talk about.
If they WITHDRAW their listing they cannot list with another agent until the listing period is up (there should be no penalty except that their house cant be sold for the remainder of the listing period). They need to have the listing contract CANCELED with that agency to immediately move forward and list with another agent. There is not a financial penalty to canceling a contract if everyone agrees. Again all contracts are different.
Regardless of what happens they should be interviewing with other agents. I have a satisfaction guaranteed contract. If for any reason a seller is not happy with my services they can write a letter or call and if it is a valid concern that can't be rectified to everyone's satisfaction, I will cancel the contract. I personally do not want to be in a hostile situation with a client, I would just prefer to move on.
It is very hard to be more specific without knowing the circumstances or knowing the exact nature of the listing contract. Good luck!!
