You can begin by contacting, inviting, and interviewing a few agents from different realty companies, then choose the one like best and who has the most to offer to list the unit; he/she will be your best guide. You can also have ready all co-op ownership related paperwork. Make sure the unit shows well, is neat, clean, clutter free, fresh paint if necessary, remove/rearrange any bulky furniture, remove/replace any old carpeting, etc. ... more

Cannot answer that question; wouldn't if I knew:
This is a question for your Tax person;
It could depend on how long you've lived there, if it is your Principle residence, (one is not) and what you are doing with the money once you get it.

It's up to the broker, because the listings actually belong to the broker rather than the agent.

Hello Doreen,
Look at your listing agreement with your former real estate agency that marketed your home as it will state on there any additional time after the agreement expires that you would still be responsible for paying their commission fee.
Good luck selling!

i certainly agree that anytime someone does not show up for an appt, they better have a good reason.. like they are in the hospital or something. Short of that, it is unprofessional and rude. Having said that, I also realize everyone makes mistakes, so I am not sure if a single event would cause me to want to burn him at the st unake, but I would definately not be happy. Beyond that, I am confused why your agent needs to be present for the showing if the buyer has an agent? Maybe you requested assisted showings, but I don't suggest this (bear in mind I don't know your market, so I am speaking in general terms here). It reduces the availability for showings and frustrates all parties. You will miss potentially good buyers with this requirement.

It's a little unclear in your story how it came to be that you would have the contact information for the buyers agent that he didn't, so I can't venture an opinion on that. I know that there are times that an agent will call me while I am on the go, and I will do my best to help them; but I don't have the ability to write down who it is at the moment - like when I am driving or with another client or something - and I've forgotten who it was that contacted me... and if that agent has shown the property and my client might have his card, I would call my client to get the info again so I could follow up and keep the records that I like to maintain.

Just remember, you are a team. This is a tough market. While it sounds like you have at least one very valid concern about your agents performance, I am not sure you have an actual breach of contract. You may need to contact the broker of the office and discuss the situation = maybe the broker will reassign your listing.
