What Should You Do If You Don’t Like Your Real Estate Agent?

Most issues that involve a real estate agent can be avoided early by ensuring you hire someone who can serve your needs. Finding the right property management company can be complicated with all the service providers. The reality is that there are many ways to narrow down several viable prospects out of all the property management companies parading online. Some of the easiest and most effective methods include networking on social media, asking family and friends for a referral, or simply searching online.

At 3 Options Realty, we pride ourselves on putting the client's needs first and providing continuous support and quality services throughout their real estate journey. We believe that the first step to finding the ideal candidate is by meeting many agents instead of picking the first person you see. While this is the fastest path, it helps you figure out what you are looking for in a property managers. We also recommend evaluating their professionalism to find out if they are committed and up to the task.

If you don't like the services rendered by your current real estate agent and you haven't signed an agent agreement, then you can find a different agent at any point. However, most property management companies ensure that an agreement is signed that legally bounds you to remain with them for a particular duration. Here are some things you need to do if you consider firing your real estate agent.

Read Your Agent Agreement Carefully

The first step is to go through the agent agreement again since you already did it for the first time going into the deal. Reviewing the document for the second time gives you clarity and an opportunity to find valid reasons to fire your current property management company. While this doesn't guarantee a loophole exists, a refresher doesn't hurt.

Have a Frank Conversation with Your Agent

Once you have comprehensively reviewed the agent agreement, the next step is to have a polite and frank conversation with your agent. The dialogue aims to allow you to air your grievances and explain why your needs aren't being met as expected. An open discussion also gives the real estate agent a chance to improve and adopt a better approach when serving you or allowing you out of the agreement.

Talk to the Broker

If the talks don't succeed and you fail to make any progress with your agent, consider consulting a broker. We recommend that you be as specific as possible while sharing your grievances and explaining what you want to happen. Some brokers can help you break out of the agreement, but you should talk to a lawyer if that isn't the case.

A broker might not have the expertise to help you out of an agreement, but a real estate lawyer can recommend the most suitable course of action based on your agreement.
