St George MLS listings hold within them an arrangement between all realtors, both sellers agents and buyers agents. The listing agent will typically list the home for a 6% commission, with 3% going to the listing side and 3% going to the selling side (or the Buyer's side). The split commission becomes an incentive for agents to help and represent buyers and take them to houses on the MLS. If the listing agent represents the buyer also, he/she gets both commissions, "double-ending" the transaction. Some agents will focus mostly in working with buyers as buyers agents. The listing realtor also has motivation to bring as many of their own buyers to that listing in order to represent both sides of the sale. This Broker 'Co-op'erating arrangement involved helps get things sold, while maintaining societies interest for choices involving representation through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) where we have a concept called Broker Reciprocity. This is how Brian can represent you on any property.
