Ok, since we do not have the listing agreement you obviously signed with your current brokerage and listing agent, it is hard to tell what the terms are and what you agreed to commit to....
First of all for as long as you are under contract with a brokerage, you really can NOT sell FSBO, i.e. by owner, i.e. on your own, and in most listing agreements you also cannot sell by owner for a period of
time after the end of the listing agreement. So you need to carefully read your listing agreement!
But here is my recommendation, a listing Agent cannot really force you to work with her, if YOU do not want to, of course you have to have also some reasons why not...
Therefore I suggest to you, to first meet with that Realtor's Managing Broker, i.e. the Manager of that particular Listing office. Sit down and present why you would want out of the listing agreement, and have that manager explain to you what the terms and conditions are, if you stay with the brokerage or if and when you want to cancel the listing agreement - He or she will gladly sit down with you and discuss it with you. And remember although you hired a particular listing agent, who is working with you on your home sale, YOU legally do have a listing agreement Contract with the Brokerage.
And the managing broker of that brokerage office can assign a different agent from the office
to service you. Which could be one solution. If on the other hand you want to sell by owner, not
sure why, but if it is exclusively to save the commission, then you MUST make sure what the
terms in your listing agreement actually are, i.e. what you can and can NOT do, there is usually
a time frame to cancel a listing agreement, and usually a period of time thereafter when you
cannot sell FSBO, but you could sign a new lease agreement with another brokerage.
But since we cannot see your listing agreement with the current brokerage, it is hard to tell here
what your options are.
Hope this helps...
