Finding a realtor can be kind of like dating. There are a ton of them, each with their own set of pros and cons, different areas of expertise, etc. So, when you start forming a relationship but then realize that things may end up a bit rockier than anticipated, it can be a bit tricky to “break-up” with your realtor in a professional way. Here's the guide to changing realtors without a lot of stress.

Can You Trust a Relator's Housing Recommendations?

If you’ve expressed what you’re looking for, but they aren’t making much time for you, showing you homes that don’t fit your priorities, they are likely not the realtor for you. When you don’t have confidence that the person (who will be making commission on your purchase) isn’t work on your behalf, it’s time to cut them loose.

How to Approach a Relator about Breaking the Connection

Before you give them a call and try to break it gently, be sure you’re not breaching any contracts and making sure to protect your future obligations with a new realtor by getting the “ending of services” in writing and include the date. As with anything, be professional and explain why the fit wasn’t correct.

Final Thoughts

Realtors are just people. In the same note, realtors are people too. So, think of them as trusted advisors, not bosses. And, if the time comes to move on to someone new, break it to them easy. Learn everything you need to know before you buy a home through Homebidz.
