What usually matters most is that you have good pictures of your home as well as a great asking price.

"Michelle, you said you would do these things, and you haven't done them." Then, after she explains (I did them, I forgot, I didn't mean it, I didn't think you wanted them done, whatever), you can decide what you want her to do: do them, cancel the listing, beg for mercy, your choice.<br/><br/>What you can try to have others do is: you can call her broker, but then you'd have to tell the broker what you want (I want you to fire her, I want her to give up the listing, I want her to wash my car every Monday for the next ten weeks, whatever).<br/><br/>The most common problem between real estate agents and their clients isn't deceit, it's poor communication. So - figure out what you want from her, call her up, and tell her.<br/><br/>Then report back to us so we know how it went!<br/><br/>All the best, Mon, 06 Feb 2012 23:29:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Illinois-Agent-renigged-on-statements-she-made-to-get-the-Listing-What-should-I-do/431117/ 2012-02-06T23:29:00Z I would have cancelled the ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Illinois-Agent-renigged-on-statements-she-made-to-get-the-Listing-What-should-I-do/431117/ I would have cancelled the Listing, but afraid it wold look bad when Buyers Agents see that I switched Brokerages. Might think something is wrong with property and stay away, or think it's an opportunity for low ball offers.<br/><br/>What do you think?
