Is it possible to Terminate contract Buyers Real Estate Agent? We signed a "Residential Buyer/Tenant Representation Agreement" the end of July. If it is possibile what steps do we need to take. We have been looking for months and unfortunately feel our needs are not being met by our realtor. Our contract we signed is set to expire on October 31, 2013 and we do not want to wait that long.

All the properties we have looked at are one's that I have found on HAR.com, she used to send us automated emails when new properties would come on the market but she hasn't even sent us one of those in over a month. Basically our realtor has been our chaperon to see these properties and when we go to submit and offer she has no input, no advice, NOTHING. I know this market is difficult but feel like we would already have a place if we had a better more experienced realtor.

we signed and stayed with our realtor, but she said that if we ever wanted out- we could do so on the condition that we could not go after any properties she had shown us or provided info about. it may be something that may depend from realtor to realtor.

What does the contract say? there has to be something in there addressing breaking the contract.

Send her an email, stating you want to terminate. If she sends one back, agreeing, keep that email and move forward. If no response, call the broker, who will possibly assign a new one that you are happier with working. I don't like buyer agreements. Listing agreements are necessary (in order to list in MLS, etc.) - not so buyer agreements.
