If you are not happy you will blame your agent for the house not selling. Talk to the office manager and get another agent from the same office. Some people are like oil and water. No hard feelings its all business.

You need to communicate your concerns to him or her. If that does not work talk to the office manager and write a letter that you want to Cancel the contract.

Talk to the agent and see if you can come to some sort of understanding of what is expected of the agent. If a resolve cannot be made see if they will cancel your listing agreement. If they are not willing to cancel the contract talk to the broker/owner of the real estate company and see if something can be arranged where all parties are happy.

Unfortunately there is a listing contract in place and it is not so easy to make it go away.

you can set up a fac eto face meeting with teh agent or go right over their head and ask for a meeting with teh managing broker of the real estate firm. if teh manager does not handle teh situation to your liking , you can ask to be released from your contract.

good luck working thing out

Well... I can tell you if your Real Estate Agent is not workng for you and acting in your best interest that you should talk to them. Sometimes, Realtors do not know that their client is unhappy. If your agent doesn't fix the issue after you have spoke to them; I would fire them and find a Realtor that cares.

You can call and talk to your agents Broker. And/or sit your agent down and let them know that to date you are not happy with his/her services......spell it out. Give the agent a chance to make it right. If you your agent doesn't respond professionally ......... you can cancel the listing.

Your first line of defense is to confront the agent to make sure there is a clear understanding of your expectations. If that fails contact the broker/manager of the office. It is possible your needs can still be met or that they will allow you out of the contract.
If you do part ways, be sure you get in writing that you will not be bound to pay a commission to them or you may be subject to paying double commission. Good luck.
