Wanting to sell house, realtor tells me ti list way below what I thought

I am thinking about selling my house and in the early stages of planning. I reached out to the same realtor who helped my buy my house in 2020 to see if I could work with them again on selling my house.

She ran the numbers and came back with an estimated sales price $30k lower than what I was thinking of listing at. I tell her I want to at least get $30k more than what her estimates are and she gets back to me saying that it is better for me to list at the appraisal value and let buyers out bid each other. Well, I’m no expert but I’m darn sure no one is going to want to offer $30k more over the asking price. Today a house with the exact same floor plan as mine was listed for $38k more than the price she advised me to sell at. Same floorplan, same year built, same everything pretty much.

I’ve also been studying the market for months now with houses selling way over what I even want to list my house at. Some of those houses have smaller lots, and some dont even have stone countertops in the kitchen. My house does.

I’ve never sold a house before so I don’t know what I’m doing. But all I know is that I want to list at a specific price and my realtor is advising against it. Should I work with a different realtor?
