How do you deal with an unresponsive realtor?
Have a face to face meeting with your agent and explain the issues you are having with communications and ask if they know why this is happening. Where possible, have details of specific failures to respond. Once your agent has had a chance to answer, the two of you can discuss if and how you both want to move forward.
How do you get a realtor to respond?
A: Typically, most Realtors will respond to your inquiries as soon as possible. Some agents will not respond if the property is already under contract. I would suggest you consult with a buyer agent specialist to work for you. You can call your local real estate brokerage and ask to speak with the broker on duty.

Can I fire my Realtor after signing a contract?
