Every Realtor and Real Estate Companies in Edmonton market homes differently. Some companies and agents will put your home on the public MLS, charge an upfront fee and expect you to do everything else, hoping either you find a buyer yourself or another agent from another real estate company brings you a buyer for your home. A full-service company will do all of the work for you and more. Below are three more reasons to fire your Realtor.
- Can you Fire an Edmonton Realtor?
- Top 3 Reasons to Fire Your Realtor
- More Reasons to Fire the Wrong Realtor
4. Your Realtor is not looking after your best Interest
A Realtor's obligations are set out in your agreement in plain sight. During the listing agreement, your Realtor must be impartial in dealings with you and other buyers being represented by the same agents with an interest in your property.
- If your agent has found a buyer for your home and is representing both you and the buyer, an acknowledgement form must be signed but all parties prior to the offer presentation. If you are not comfortable with your Realtor representing both you and the buyer with the sale of your home, both have the option of being represented by another Realtor or real estate brokerage prior to the offer presentation.
5. Your Realtor is not marketing your home
Under section 4.2 subsections (a) and (b) of the Exclusive Seller Representation Agreement, it states:
- In addition to the responsibilities described in the Consumer Relationship Guide, the designated agent (your Realtor) must also:
- (a) market the property, until the property is sold under this agreement, or this agreement ends.
- (b) keep you informed of their marketing activities and any resulting transaction.
A good realtor will continuously keep marketing your home through various types of marketing exposure to find the right buyer and keep you informed. Don't expect to find that perfect buyer if the only thing exposing your home for sale is the address and a few photos on the Multiple Listing Service (Realtor.ca).
6. Confidential Information Exposed!
Whether you list with a common law real estate company or a designated real estate company, the Consumer Relationship Guide forms part of both a buyers agreement and a sellers agreement. In this document. it clearly states the agent's fiduciary duties which include:
- Undivided loyalty: The agent must act only in your best interest and put them above their own and those of people. The agent must avoid conflicts of interest and must protect your negotiation position at all times. In lamens terms - your reasons for selling cannot be disclosed unless it has been put in writing.
- Confidentiality: The agent must keep the information confidential, even after your relationship ends. Confidential information includes your personal information, information about the property and information about the transaction (except information the law says must be disclosed or information you agree to disclose).
For more information on the Alberta Consumer Relationship Guide, contact the Alberta Real Estate Council.
There are a few reasons to fire your Realtor. If you feel you made a mistake by signing a selling agreement with the wrong Realtor, the best thing to do is to correct it and move on. If your Lawyer or Doctor was not working in your best interest, would you fire them too?
Your listing agreement is usually for a period of three to six months (sometimes longer) and you are entitled to cancel at any time. This can be done with a standard Alberta real estate form. A Realtor (depending on the agency designation) also has the option of terminating your agreement at any time without your consent, but this rarely happens.

If you have hired the wrong real estate company or agent to represent you, fire them. Do it professionally and do it in writing. There are a few things to consider prior to firing your Edmonton Realtor. All of these contingencies will be set out in your original listing agreement.
Who owns the listing?
A: The listing is owned by the brokerage, not the Realtor. If you have a problem with the agent, call the broker. If you have a problem with the broker, call consumer affairs and the Edmonton Real Estate Association.
Is there a fee to cancel your listing agreement?
A: There may be a cancellation fee in the standard agreement. This fee is usually the cost to cover expenses already paid by your Realtor prior to your cancellation. The service fee amount will be set out in the agreement you signed. However, if you paid a fee upfront, there usually is no cancellation fee.
Will I still have to pay a commission after I fire my agent?
A: If a buyer was introduced to your home during the term of your listing agreement and you sell it privately (during a specified time in the agreement) to that same buyer, commissions will be payable.
Can I hire another agent immediately?
A: Yes. Once your home is off of the market, you are free to list your home with any licenced real estate agent.
When you are ready to fire your Realtor, simply inform your agent that you would like to cancel the listing and ask him to provide you with the cancellation listing form. There will be two choices on this form. Make sure you have a property termination end date, the broker (not the Realtor) has signed and you have received a copy.
- 1. Unconditional termination
- Which allows no further obligations for either the seller or Realtor
- 2. Conditional Termination
- Your agreement will end on the termination date but your obligations will continue under the terms of Section 10 of the Exclusive Seller Representation Agreement. There may also be an additional term.
If your Realtor fails to provide this form within a timely matter, contact the brokerage and tell them about your grievances with the agent.
Can you fire a Buyers Agency or Buyer Realtor?
Yes. It is a different form, but you are free to fire your Realtor when buying. There may or may not be a small fee to get out of the agreement. This fee would have been set out in the original buyers' agreement which states: If you change your mind about looking for a property, you must tell us in writing. You must reimburse us for our reasonable expenses up to the time you tell us. Reasonable expenses will include: (If this section is blank - no penalty will be payable). However, this does not allow you to approach a seller that has been introduced to you while working with your realtor. If you do this, you will have to pay a full commission as set out in the original buyer brokerage agreement.
If you have any questions, both RECA (the Real Estate Council of Alberta) and EREB (the Edmonton Real Estate Board) have plenty of great information to help you make the best decision for you!
Are you Posted to CFB Edmonton Garrison?
Welcome to our Edmonton Canadian Armed Forces Base.
CFB Edmonton Garrison is also known as the "Steele Barracks". It is located a few minutes north of Edmonton in Sturgeon County and there are plenty of homes to choose from on your house hunting trip from no-maintenance condominiums for a simpler lifestyle to newer houses which have recently been constructed over the last few years to quiet family oriented properties with large lots in nearby towns.
Morinville Alberta has always been an attractive place for our DND members to purchase a detached home due to the house prices and the commute to CFB Garrison. Morinville is a growing community and over the last few years has become more popular for civilians and our ageing population which has increased real estate values. It is located less than ten minutes from St. Albert which is now the second largest city in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region.
There are still a few nearby towns which are more affordable for our younger military members and their families offering the small rural home town ambience. These towns include Bon Accord, Gibbons and Legal. A bit further northwest of our city is another desirable place for our DND members to purchase property on house hunting trips in the city of Fort Saskatchewan which offers all municipal amenities. One of the main features in Fort Saskatchewan is one of the largest metropolitan river valley park systems in the world.
If you prefer the city life but want to stay within minutes of our military base, view our homes for sale in Northeast Edmonton or add a few more minutes to your commute and live in Northwest Edmonton.
If you are posted to CFB Edmonton and would like a jump start on your house hunting trip, contact us and we will set you up with a customized property search that will save you time and eliminate those undesirable houses once you arrive.

It is always best to try to resolve any issues or concerns you have prior to firing your agent. However, if you have made a mistake and chosen the wrong Realtor to represent you on the purchase or sale of your home, the best thing to do what is best for you and move on. Below are the top 3 reasons home sellers and buyers fire their Realt Estate Agents.
- Can you Fire an Edmonton Realtor?
- Top 3 Reasons to Fire Your Realtor
- More Reasons to Fire the Wrong Realtor
Reason 1: Lack of communication
You have signed a listing agreement with a Realtor and now have no idea what is happening with the sale of your home because your agent is not responding to your texts, emails or phone calls. A lack of communication is the biggest complaint Realtors receive from the public and is unacceptable. Even if there has not been any activity on your property, your Realtor should still be communicating with you to let you know there is no interest. A good Realtor will have systems in place to ensure you receive updates on the sale of your home on a regular basis. These updates should include:
- Feedback from all and every showing one you home
- The most recent real estate community activity including which homes have recently sold had price adjustments, and the homes which have been removed from the market.
- Updates on your neighbourhood house prices - Should you really drop your price?
- Feedback from Open houses
- How many people are looking at your home online
- The number of people who have viewed the videos
- All internet and yard sign inquires
- Any mortgage changes which will affect the sale of your home.
Reason 2: Your Photos Suck!
Let's face it! If your photos on the MLS are distorted, blurry or upside down, it shows the effort your Realtor is putting into the sale of your home. It also shows the quality of the Realtor you hired.
If you are a hoarder, have extremely messy tenants or your property needs some major repairs, there is still no reason why your MLS photos should not be clear. When a buyer views your home in person, they will see the condition of your home, so why hide it.
When putting photographs on the MLS, it is to attract buyers looking online. It only takes a few minutes for your home to show it's best. This is easily done and only takes a few minutes to remove anything in the photos which would discourage a buying from wanting to see your home. This is not rocket science.
- Remove any signs of pets including their toys and food dishes.
- Make your beds and open your blinds and curtains
- Clean off your kitchen counters and hide dirty dishes
- Don't over stage your home - This just clutters the photos
- Put the toilet seats down
- Cut your grass and shovel your walkways.
Reason 3: Showing you the wrong houses
When you sign an agreement with a Realtor to help you with the purchase of a home and you are discouraged with every property you have seen, this may be a sign you have chosen the wrong agent. As a buyers agent, your Realtor should be taking the time to search listings WITH YOU to determine which properties will work best for you and eliminate those which will not. Its fun to look at houses online, but great Realtors use a few techniques to make a property look better than it actually is. It's our job! When you are viewing homes online with your Realtor, you will be able to see the "private" comments including any contingencies which would discourage you from purchasing that home.
By eliminating "undesirable" properties will save both you and your Realtor time and frustration. It will also help those home sellers. Every time a sellers home in Edmonton is shown, the seller tries to make their property show its best by cleaning up, removing the kids and the pets and accommodating your showing time.
If you still have questions or concerns, please contact the Edmonton Real Estate Association at 780-451-6666.
