Can I fire my realtor when I purchased my new home?

I am represented by a realtor who never even accompanied me to see a new home community and doesn't return phone calls or emails. Can I remove her so she doesnt get her commission without getting into any legal battle?

It all depends on the agreement , if an that you made with that agent. If you dont have one or even if you do, call her broker and discuss with him or her. Best of luck in your search. :)

I recommend you contact her broker and/or your state licensing entity and file a complaint. This is a lousy way for a Realtor to treat a client. In her defense, that's not much for the Realtor to do when the home purchased is new construction; however, she should have been there for your meeting with the builder's sales representative and certainly should have reviewed contracts or other documents to be sure your interests were served. In Texas, it's not that difficult to get out of a buyer's representation agreement. Begin that procedure at once! I'm betting you'll hear from her almost immediately.

Since you're "represented I assume that you have a Buyer's Broker agreement with that Realtor®. If she isn't representing you the the National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics arbitration proceedings would probably find that she abandoned you, and she wouldn't be entitled to a commission. It's best to not go that route - it's a pain and it's scary. My advice is to contact her Broker and request that you be released from the Buyer's Broker agreement, in writing. Most Brokers are quick to give you that release, especially if you can document unreturned emails and phone calls. Good luck!

If all else fails, you can file a complaint with the California DRE, just Google it.

If you have an exclusive agency employment agreement with this realtor you should contact her Broker. If there is no exclusive agency agreement then you can. Feel free to contact me to discuss off line.

If you say you are "represented," there must have been an event (and/or document) that leads you to this belief. If you have a problem with the agent, contact her broker and voice your concerns.

Who wrote up the agreement of sale? Do you have a buyer agency agreement with that agent? It seems she must have done something that you are not telling us.
