If you do have a buyer broker agreement, you should point out the "Specific Performance" clause within it to that agent and have them write you a "Retraction Addendum" for your buyer broker agreement. If they refuse, you may want to contact that agent's broker or an attorney if things get really nasty.
When you available as a client, my team and I are always here. We have plenty of good client references for your review. http://www.LasVegasRealEstateConnection.com.
Absent results, you will have a good foundation for requesting to be excused from your agreement.
Since you are a buyer, unless you signed some paperwork that requires your working with your
current agent, you should be able to terminate your relationship, but do that in writing (if you signed
an agreement, just read that to see how the termination clause is working).
Before you do though, maybe have a heart to heart with this agent - and let him/her know
your expectations and how you feel about their performance (or, rather, lack of it). If there is no
understanding, then talking to the agent's broker might help.
Best of luck,

Again, I am not sure of the Florida laws, but I thought I should mention it.
Please don't take this personally, but the answer is - by communicating with them.
Communication is a two-way activity, and when one party is stumbling over "what to say" to the other party, there's a good chance that they're part of the problem.
That doesn't make you a bad client. What I recommend is, after communicating with this agent, you go out and talk to (or invite in) other agents, and look one that you communicate well with and they with you. After you find that agent, do yourself a favor and talk to one more agent, just to keep some perspective.
All of us have a problem communicating with somebody at some time. In a real estate transaction, it helps to have somebody that you DON'T have a problem communicating with!
I'm sorry you are having trouble, but please reach out to the Broker. Good luck!
Sorry to hear you're working with a lousy agent.
I've attached a link on how to find a great Realtor and hope you find my suggestions helpful.
You are NOT obligated to stay with your current agent if you are not happy. All agents should earn their keep and if yours isn't then they have to deal with what happens. You can respectfully tell your agent that you are no longer in need of their services and go your separate ways. If you are signed exclusive with them for a period of time talk to the manager for the agents broker. The manager will not judge you and will replace your agent or if its the broker you are not happy cancel your exclusive contract. Remember you are the client and if you are not happy you need to say something. As a courtesy to your current agent I would definitely let them know before going MIA. He/She may be spending hours searching for homes for you so a heads up is always appreciated.

is violating a Code of Ethics for real
estate agents. Once you have fired the
other agent you are certainly welcome
to call anyone else to represent you.
Good luck. Patti Antalik, Realtor

I feel your pain, as an agent I have the same problem getting necessary information for my clients from agents from time to time. I made communication as part of my business model. My promise to you is to be available during times that are convenient to you and I will always return your call within the hour after receiving your voice mail.
This is key in our field is a constant communication, Bad or Good news or No News at all.
Its a shame that have one that don't full-field his or her duties. I hope everything working out for you.
If you have NOT signed something called a Buyer Brokerage Agreement, it's as simple as telling him or her that you don't want to work together anymore.
If you DID sign a Buyer Brokerage Agreement, look for what that document says about terminating your relationship. You may have to give written notice, and you won't be able to buy anything that agent showed you for a certain number of days without paying him/her.
Let me know if I can help you more
...or if you are already in an agreement with that agent, talk to the broker. If they can't resolve the issues, ask the broker to assign another agent who he/she thinks will be able to communicate more effectively with you.
If you have signed a buyer brokerage agreeement with this agent- It is up to the broker overseeing the agent to relenquish you from the term of the buyer brokerage agreement if in fact you have signed one.
If you have not signed a buyer broker agreement- and they are not communicating with you anyway, then you can potentially just move on to a diligent agent who will communicate and service your needs in the manner that you wish to communicate-
A signed letter to the agent and their broker, wishing to discontinue to have them represent you is the cleanest way to go on your part-
If you are a seller in this transaction than you need to ask for an unconditional withdrawl.
However, have you first discussed your concerns?
If you are a buyer and you signed a contract ask for a release of the contract and state the reasons why. than like Donald Trump states it...... YOUR FIRED!!!!!
Before you choose another agent asks pertinent questions state your concerns and than listen carefuly . Ask the agent what you can expect from him or her ...
Work with a full time agent who has experience and knowledge of the area or areas you are interested in if you are purchasing. A seller will have a differnt set of questions.
PS if you would like a referal for a great agent my company works with agents all across the US we only work with qualifed and reputable Brokers.
Best of Luck
