I trusted this so called veteran agent to sell my landed property under a gentleman’s exclusive and he was complacent and undersold my property by at least 500k since there was no competition by another agent. A few months later he sold my neighbour’s house for a million dollars more than mine. From that time onwards, I view agents as scums and diy whenever possible.

To show facts and figures before accusing someone for underselling your previous landed place for 500k difference. because from my understanding there is official valuer to give a good valuation and for agent to sell your place 500k less is quite far fetched. It is your property so ultimately the decision lies in you whether to sell low or higher. Furthermore, your neighbour house probably didn’t have the same specs and USPs as your place (land size, built, interior, external) features. If both your previous landed place and neighbour house were identical then there shouldn’t be an exaggerated gap of “million dollar” difference. Sounded like you’re more jealous and salty that your house was not in the position to fetch the “ideal” price you thought you could get and now shift blame on your agent.
