She is following the listing agreement, so it is legal. Ethically, it slightly wrong!

Hi, Jake-
I was just checking on the current market value of your home, and saw that you just sold it for $430K! I know it has been 3 years since your question was posted, but it does show how much real estate appreciates over time! 3 years ago, you were hoping for $350k! What a great decision you made to hold on to the property, as you increased your price by 22%!

First thing would be to go talk with a real estate lawyer. Sometimes a nice letter from a lawyer gets things straightened out.
A listing agreement is a form of employment contract with the Realtor. Sellers can terminate this agreement in writing.
Since your parents knew of an offer and even counter offered, there then comes into question as to when or if there was an "offer and acceptance". That's where the lawyer comes in again.
As for the Realtor, your parents can file a grievance with the agents Association of Realtors. They may or may not do anything.

Hi Thinh, I'm a Garden Grove Realtor & resident and know the city well. Without seeing your home and having the opportunity to compare it to recently sold listings, it's tough to give an actual price. I would expect a home in good condition in this neighborhood with 4 bedrooms and 1800 square feet to sell for about $460,000-$475,000. If the home is very impressive it will get more, and if it is in poor condition, it can go as low as $400,000. A cost per square foot analysis doesn't work well for you home because in your neighborhood, there are many homes that are much smaller than yours and have as little as 2 bedrooms.

If you owe more on your home than it's currently worth, there are a few otpions for you to look at. I've posted some information on my website that is helpful for sellers.
