Answer: Real estate contracts must be in writing.  If you are concerned that your real estate agent is being dishonest with you, you might want to consult a lawyer and have the lawyer review the listing contract and the sales contract.  The attorney can help you navigate this process and help you deal with a real estate agent who is not being honest with you.
