How long is your contract? It may be a good idea to get a second opinion. Have you tried searching on You can ask local Naperville realtors questions about your issues for free.

If you ever want to hire a new realtor, I would utilize the UpNest platform because you can compare realtor fees and services. Hope this helps! ... more

There is no "one" fee that western Chicago agents charge. Each agent/agency charges their fee based on the services they offer.

Contact several agents/agencies and ask what they charge, and what they offer for that fee.

Good luck.

Listing agents do so much more than just listing or marketing your home - although those are very valuable and important parts of our job. We also help our clients navigate the closing process. Reviewing preliminary title reports, coordinating inspections and appraisal appointments, septic certifications, negotiating inspection and appraisal outcomes, maintaining complete communication between the lender, escrow, and agents, assisting in a smooth transition after the property closes and records. We are also a source for all the people you don't know, such as: insurance agents, lenders, inspectors, home warranty providers, as well as a host of other community vendors to help you settle into your new location.

In addition to all of these things, listing agents are often counselors and sounding boards. The process can be stressful, so our job is to limit your stress throughout all aspects of the process. :-)

Was your house taken off the market or has your listing agreement expired? I would either ask your agent or look at how long your listing agreement was signed for. Most listing agreements are signed for 6 months or more. Hope this helps! If I can help with anything please contact me at anytime. ... more
