Pomona, CA asked in Real Estate Law for California

Q: Real Estate agent in California is not working, what are our options?

We went with the real estate agent that helped us purchase our house years ago and liked her well enough to use her for our sale. However, problems are arising quickly.

She rushed through and took awful photos of the house and property. We had new ones taken that were actually somewhat pleasant and asked her to use them. She used a hand full in conjunction with hers.

We tried recommending that she adds the fact we are within walking distance to an elementary school and park then told us no "people will think they will be vandalized" and then proceeded to tell us we are marketing towards families.

She flat out lied to us and told us there was "tremendous" interest in the property when we voiced concern about the length with no showings via email. 2 days beforehand she said she has one call regarding it (in total) when I convinced her to actually come place a lock box.

Everything was fine until the moment we signed the contract. We want someone who wants it to sell.

A: Unless you have an exclusive listing agreement, you can terminate the agent and hire a new one.

A full consultation would be necessary to properly advise you.
