    Default Can I Terminate the Listing Agent

    My question involves real estate located in the State of: Florida

    My ex husband found the agent who has the listing contract on our house. I have never signed or even been able to speak to this agent. He will not return my phone calls and has kept the house at double the appraised value of the house for over 2 years.

    I am on the deed and on the equity line of credit which he keeps borrowing against. I do not understand why my wishes to sale the house at fair market value fail to be considered.

    Is there anything I can do to get rid of this realtor???????

    Thank you.

    no.




    do you even live with your husband?
    I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.

    I'm not seeing where there is a specific FL law that all parties on the deed must sign a residential sale listing agreement. I do see that individual Realtor boards will make that a rule for their member brokers. Is the broker in fact a Realtor, and not simply a Florida-licensed real estate broker? If so, possibly you could inquire of the board of this issue.

    Frankly, an agent would be out of his mind to take a listing that is twice the current market value, unless they hoped to get something else out of it, such as advertising/name exposure . . . or maybe, he's indulging your ex in playing games with you.

    Again, if the agent is a Realtor, contact the Realtor association to which this Realtor belongs.
