Working with a real estate agent is a unique professional bond. Their job is to understand your current financial health and how you envision your family’s future, and get you in the house to make the dream happen. It’s natural to feel wary about breaking up with your REALTOR® or real estate agent.
Before you have the conversation, it’s important to confirm you’re legally allowed to work with another agent, or if you’re stuck with your current one.
