I signed a listing agreement when I was very vulnerable.

Customer Question

I signed a listing agreement when I was very vulnerable. Realtor said he would take care of everything. He didn't. He wanted me to lower the price $34,000 within two weeks and only shown to two people. He has never sent me a signed listing contract.

JA: Huh?
Customer: Also, he withdrew it from the MLS for almost 3 months now. I never signed a withdrawal. I emailed him a list of people that I had shown the property to before I signed the listing agreement. He never sent me modification of terms. He his owner and broker won't send me any of my or his signed paper work. My blood pressure is skyrocketing and am not on antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. The broker says he can't do anything. I'm 71 years old and feel like this is a form of elder abuse. I even had an attorney ask for my paperwork and they ignored him too. What can I do. can I punish in the newspaper or put it on the news regarding how much they are torturing me. I've missed labor day and 4th of July.
