Can I cancel my contract with my selling agent if there is no exit clause?

Question Details: We are selling our house. The sale price of my house was suggested by my selling agent. She did not give us an exit clause before getting our signatures on the contract. When we asked her, what happens if we want to delist our home, she said it has never happened. There are rarely any footfalls and showings ever since we listed. We are not even the most expensive home in this neighborhood but she keeps indicating we come down on the price drastically even though the sale price was recommended by her. The contract states that there will be legal consequences if we break it like the legal fees and expenses incurred by the realty for listing and marketing our property. What can we do to end it without hassles?
