Problems with My "Property Manager"

Hey guys I am having a strange in issue with the Property Manger of the house I am renting. Before I get into the specifics, I have these questions.
1. What is typical commission for a property manager in San Diego (i.e. 10 or 15% of rent?).
2. What type of commission or fee would a listing agent receive for listing a rental property on MLS?
3. Would you consider it a conflict of interest for a real estate agent who lists the property (and receives commission in #2) to also act as the property manager? Conflict of interest would be that the agent would want turnover assuming they get fees for #2 while property owner is interested in minimal turnover (i.e. stable rent check).
Basically just trying to get some simple maintenance issues taken care of and in the process she turned bat shit crazy on me.
I've been renting this house for 7 years in which time I have direct deposited the rent check into her account on time without hiccup. Basically I am a perfect tenant in theory.
Anyway, she doesn't really perform as a property manager because she rarely comes to the property or follows up on maintenance work even though she literally lives down the street. Basically the only thing she does is cash my rent check. But lately when I've complained about the repairs not getting done (some of which have lingered for years) she is starting to insult me and tell me I should move somewhere else.
So what do you think is going on here? Is this lady just a crazy old bitch or does she have ulterior motives to get new tenant for her own interests? Given the super tight real estate and rental market right now I am thinking may be some combination of both.
Any opinions or advice would be appreciated.
