The Dude,

Good question. Without any additional information, we as Realtors on this site can't help you. Your first move should be to get everything in writing and as concise as possible and then meet with the agents managing broker. If there is a real problem the managing broker will want to know. We in the real estate community don't like to see this happen. It reflects on all of us.

Sometimes when you lay everything out on the table you might find that it is a misunderstanding in regards to semantics or something else that can be worked out. With our ongoing commitment to being ethical, it is amazing how seldom we have agents that will flat out lie to the detriment of their clients. Hope you get everything worked out.

Before you worry only about the commission, you must evaluate the value of the commission.

First and foremost you must try to find out as to whether your agent is an active "go-getter" who will put energy on marketing your condo and mileage on shopwing it promptly and constant follow ups, or is he/she working the old fashion way which was geared for good economic time, meaning he/she took the listing and hung it up on multiple listing and waiting to find out as to when and whom is going to fall into the door. An active agent is truly irreplaceable and worth every penny, even if you find the buyer yourself. There are plenty of buyers who would react to your agents marketing, but try to go around the agent hoping to get a better deal from you. The Agent's job however, is to fight to get the maximum money for you.

On the legal side, if you have an exclusive listing, the agent gets paid regardless of who secures the buyer. An Exclusive agency gives you the ability not to pay a commission if you, the owner secures the buyer. An open listing gives the commission only to the selling party.

I, as an aggressively active agent only accept exclusive listings, do not discount my commission, put in an average of 1500 per week on my car, and will try to bring in top bids even from under a rock and will try my best to patch up any serious deal to your satisfaction.

There are many others, suprisingly even a few as good as me to choose from.

All the best,
