First of all, when hiring an agent, it should be agreed, in writing if needed, to terminate the listing if you are not happy. Some will ask for an advertising fee up front that is non-refundable if there is one. Ask the broker in charge. They will probably try to ask you to let them put another agent on the listing, but, tell them no if you wish. Also, ask about the license # on your contract. Otherwise, another agent with the correct 3% commission for the buyers agent shows you are giving the company a chance. If you are not satisfied with the answers you get tell them to come get their sign and lockbox. Larger companies are not always the best. A "top selling" agent with a team is not always the best choice either.

It would be best to consult with an attorney regarding your specific legal matter. Generally speaking and based on my ongoing experience working with residential and commercial real estate investors, they're only interested in 100% ownership of the properties they invest in unless there are multiple investors dividing the ownership among them. Once probate is resolved, then all parties would have to agree to a sale. If the parties aren't ready to sell, then a cash out refinance may be the best option. That may allow the owners to settle any debts against the estate, and any remaining funds could be used at the discretion of the owners.

If a cash out refinance is the best option, then you should consult with a licensed and experienced mortgage banker after speaking with your attorney. Family and friends may be a good source for referral to a banker. You can also check client reviews of mortgage bankers on Trulia/Zillow. I've helped many clients over the years with refinancing properties they've inherited, and decided not to sell.

my house was listed last spring, but taken off the market. Trulia never took the house off the market so it looks like it has been on the market for almost a year.
