Re: Tips on buying from a broker

10% or a minimum of $3000 here, the commission often gets split 4 ways, listing agent, listing brokerage, selling agent, selling brokerage all get a share.
A friend was the highest seller for a large broker last year, 1.5 million worth of boats, $150,000 of commissions, his share was closer to $50,000.
It's really not as easy or lucrative as it can seem.
