Q: What does it mean when a realtor says the estate hired them to sell my house
A: It probably means that you do not own the home. It is owned by the estate of someone who has passed and either his or her will requires the house to be sold or it needs to be sold to pay his or her debts. A local probate attorney can help you with this.
Anthony M. Avery agrees with this answer
A: You say it is your house...Are you the titled owner? If so you will have to sue the Estate to Quiet Title. But you need a competent attorney to search the title and then so advise as to who the owners.
