If you aren’t happy with your current estate agent, you should be able to change to a new one.
Check your contract
Firstly, check your agent contract to see what the minimum term is, and how much notice you need to give. If you paid your agent upfront (most online agents, for example), then this money will probably not be refunded. Otherwise for a pay-on-completion agent, there should be nothing payable (but check the contract carefully!).

Explore your options
Next, check your shortlist of the top agents to sell your home.
We recommend inviting 3 estate agents around to your house to perform a valuation. This will be your chance to find out how they would market your home differently to your current agent. If they plan to market your home at the same price with the same photos, you may not expect a better outcome!
Make your move
Once you've found a new agent you like, you have 2 options. Either give notice to your old agent and instruct the new agent on a sole-agency basis, or appoint a new agent but keep the old one marketing your property (multi agency).
Multi agency is usually more expensive than sole agency. However if the two agents have different methods of marketing or branch locations, then it can be worth the additional cost.
