What are the legal and professional obligations to the first realtor, when you end the contract? Are we able to hire a new agent immediately?

Is telephone the best method when trying to contact the sellers for an expired listing when prospecting? If so how do you acquire the contact info?
I would suggest first verifying whether the sellers are on the "do not call" list. You can face rather large fines for soliciting business from anyone on that.
