Can I Fire My Realtor?
Firing a Realtor


The fact of the matter is that you can fire your realtor if you want to. There are a few things to keep in mind when making this decision, including how much your agent has done for you and what kind of relationship you’ve had with them. However, if you have legitimate reasons for wanting someone else on your team then this can be done without causing any hard feelings between the two parties involved.

Should I Fire My Realtor

You can fire your realtor for any reason, and you should fire your realtor if they’re not working out. You might want to keep them around, but this isn’t a commitment that requires you to do so. In fact, there are many reasons why you might want to fire your realtor—and no reason not to!

  • Your Realtor doesn’t answer their phone when you call them
  • Your Realtor doesn’t return messages
  • Your Realtor is rude to clients or prospects on an ongoing basis (even when it’s not directed at you)

Why would you want to fire your Realtor?

  • You’re not happy with your Realtor. Maybe they aren’t communicating well, or they don’t have the experience you need—whatever it is, if you’re not happy with your Realtor and their service, firing them may be an option.
  • You feel like your Realtor is not working hard enough for you. If a Realtor isn’t doing what they promised to do for you during the listing process, there’s no reason to stick with them just because of loyalty or feelings of obligation. A good realtor will never take advantage of their client’s trust in them, but if someone does show signs of exploitation or negligence then that’s another story!
  • Your needs have changed since hiring your Realtor so now he/she doesn’t work well anymore either way…you might want to try something new instead! Just make sure it’s worth while before jumping ship though–they could still be better than no one at all 😉

Are you having issues with communication?

If you’re having issues with your Realtor, the first thing to do is ask yourself if there are any communication problems. There is a difference between not following up on a lead and not responding to an email. If they have been responsive in the past, it could be that they just forgot to call you back or didn’t realize they had received an email from you. If this seems like what’s happening, then there may be nothing wrong at all—just remind them that they haven’t given you information on the homes in question yet and move on with your life. You may even find that one of their clients called them about some houses and got them so excited about showing properties that they forgot about returning your calls!

However, if this happens regularly or does not seem like an isolated incident (i.e., if their lack of responsiveness goes beyond forgetting), then it’s time to take action!

Does your Realtor seem to not be working as hard as you’d like him or her to?

Your Realtor may be a good real estate agent, but that doesn’t mean he or she is necessarily a good “best friend.”

Your Realtor can’t read your mind. You don’t want to feel like you are always being watched and held to a standard that’s impossible for anyone to meet—that’s what it feels like when you ask yourself: “Am I getting my money’s worth?” or “Why isn’t this working out?” So if this is how you feel, talk with your Realtor about it. Tell him or her how important it is for you to have an honest relationship with someone who can relate to what it’s like being in his position as far as receiving feedback from clients goes.

Is your agent pressuring you too much?

If I want to fire my Realtor, how can I make it happen gracefully?

If you want to fire your Realtor, there are a few steps you can take to make the process go smoothly. First, be polite and professional. It’s important that you speak to them in a way that doesn’t reflect poorly on yourself or your relationship with the agent. You should also communicate your dissatisfaction with their services as clearly as possible.

You may want to write them a letter stating why they have been fired and what changes need to be made before they’ll be allowed back on board. If it’s appropriate (and if this is something they’ve done before), consider calling them first instead of sending an email or text message—this will allow them time for self-reflection and hopefully prevent any further negative interactions between yourself and the agent/agency staff member/brokerage manager after firing him/her off your team! In some cases (like if calls aren’t answered), try leaving messages explaining why he/she was fired so that others within his company know what happened without having had direct contact from either party involved here today.”

Why have a buyer’s agent if the seller pays the commission?

  • A buyer’s agent can help you find a home. An experienced real estate agent has the tools and training to guide you through the process of selecting your new home. They will provide information on neighborhoods, school districts and other factors that many buyers take for granted until it’s too late.
  • A buyer’s agent can help you negotiate the price. When negotiating a purchase price for a property, it is important to use all available resources to get as low as possible while still paying an appropriate amount for the house in terms of resale value or rental income potential. Your buyer’s representative will have access to market data which can give them valuable insight about recent sales prices in similar neighborhoods or similar houses with comparable features.*
  • A buyer’s representative can assist with closing costs negotiation.* The average closing cost on a 9900 dollar property purchased by an owner occupant is between 3200 dollars and 4100 dollars depending on state laws and regulations regarding financing fees attached

As long as you are aware of your legal obligations, you are well within your rights to fire your realtor and hire a new one. Remember that when it comes to this type of situation, there are always two sides to every story.

  • It is not easy to fire a realtor. There are many hoops you have to jump through before you can get rid of one, but it can be done.
  • You should have a good reason for firing them. If your realtor is doing everything right and has no complaints, then why would you want them gone?
  • They may try talking you out of it. Realtors are used to being fired and know how uncomfortable it makes clients feel, which means they will do anything they can think of to keep their job! However, if this happens, just listen politely and politely tell them why they won’t be helping with your property anymore (e.g., “I’m sorry but I need someone who understands my needs better”). This will hopefully make them stop pestering without upsetting anyone on either side too much!


Ultimately, there are many reasons why you may want to fire your realtor. If the relationship is not working out, it’s okay to move on. Just make sure that you are aware of your legal obligations, and try to do so diplomatically.
