The Question: Mardee is representing Carol in the sale of her condo, and they’ve signed an exclusive agency listing agreement. If Carol finds her own buyer, does she owe Mardee a commission?
Answer: No, because Carol procured the buyer.
t’s easy to confuse the types of listing agreements. With exclusive agency, the seller retains the right to sell herself and not pay a commission. Exclusive right-to-sell agreements guarantee payment to the listing agent no matter who brings the buyer.
