Contracts can be broken!  Realestate like many professions is built on customer service if you don't feel like your needs are not being met than speak with your agent so she or he knows how you feel.  If that doesn't work then it's time to move on.

As hard as it may be, in writing, address your concerns in an email or letter to your agent. If they do not legitimately address your concerns and provide answers to questions than you have, I would recommend that you address those same concerns in writing to their broker or manager.

Someone should help you, you should not be stuck in a contract when you are not being helped or served.

Thanks for posting your question on Zillow.com!

I would say there are 2 sides to every story and also sometimes miscommunication.  I have had past clients not understand the process, my role or their role that were unhappy.  We sat down and I explained things and all was well after that.

I would have a face to face sit down, if your current agent is truly not a good one, then go to their broker/manager.

If that does not work, you can contact the local realtor's board.

Good luck, hope all that answered were helpful!

If the agent is treating you unprofessionally, you need to put your complaints in writing and send them to the agent's broker. You do not have to stay in a professional relationship with that agent, but it is smart to get a written release from their broker before you hire another agent.

I agree with both answers, discuss with agent, then escalate to broker...if that fails, get released from contract with broker and find a new agent/broker.
Best wishes, Jim

You get "divorced" from that agent. :-) 
However, first you might want to consider talking to the broker, who may assign you to a different agent.
