I recommend you set up a face-to-face meeting with your agent and his/her managing broker. Discuss your concerns candidly. Be specific with what you are dissatisfied with. In many cases the managing broker will release you from the contract.
The number one complaint consumers make about their Realtor relates to communication. An experienced Real Estate professional will ask you what style of communication suits YOU, the client, best.
Some of our clients want weekly phone calls for updates, some want to meet face-to-face every two weeks, and others only want to talk when their is an offer. No matter the preference, I feel that selling a home is one of the most important financial transactions a seller can make. Their preferences should MATTER to a real estate professional. Careful consideration and time should be spent ensuring that a Sellers' questions and concerns are answered and met..
According to the National Association of Realtors' study of 60,000 home sales, nearly 65% of sellers hired the first Realtor they interviewed! DON'T DO THAT! You should interview a minimum of three Realtors and they should know that you are interviewing others.
Note their communications style. Are they on time to their appointments? Is their presentation informative and professional? Do they take the time to ask about your goals to get a better idea of what you are seeking to accomplish? Often times, the sale of a home is a component of a larger goal (moving for a job, to be closer to family, down-size, upgrade, etc.
