Everyone hopes for a positive relationship with his or her real estate agent. Unfortunately, there are times when differences arise that are cause for concern.

If you feel that you are not receiving enough attention or that your property is not marketed properly, an honest discussion with your agent could solve your problem. As all real estate salesmen are required to work under a Broker In Charge, you should consider speaking with the Broker In Charge of your agent's office if the issue has not been handled properly by your agent.

Most challenges that arise in a real estate transaction are relatively minor. However, should you feel that your agent has violated the law there are steps you can take to seek legal action.
