Buyer #1 failed to perform and released a portion of his deposit as my liquidated damages. Now my broker wants to take 1/2 of my damages, even though we have escrow #2 that will close successfully in a few days in which he will get his commission. What's even more upsetting is I specifically ASKED my agent if they will take any commission from my damages before I signed the cancellation, and he said No because we will have escrow #2. Now they are going against their word and asking me for half of my damages even thought I am paying them commission when we close.
I want to add that the agent didn't do anything in this transaction, I negotiated BOTH sales on my own because my own agent was always too busy to show my house.
