Your agent should have educated you on the market and given you the information necessary for you to know what a good price is. There are so many things that go into a successful listing but setting the price correctly is #1 followed closely by condition and amenities as compared the homes you are competing with.

It sounds like your home was priced high. Agents will sometimes tell you what you want to hear in order to get your listing. This seems to be what may have happened. It's important to have an agent that will be brutally honest with their clients. I know I lose listings from time to time because they want to go with an agent who gives them a better listing price.

It is important for you to understand the market. You may even want to tour a couple homes that just went under contract or that are priced close to yours. See how they compare to yours and that may give you a glimpse of where you need to be.

Best of luck to you,
