Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
It's going to depend upon your listing agreement. You should have excluded anyone who had already been shown the property prior to the listing. If not, the typical listing agreement would provide for a commission to be owed for any contract and sale during the listing period no matter the manner in which the buyer came to the property. If your listing agreement is such, what you would want to do is wait for the listing agreement to expire (including any protection period in that listing agreement) or to see if you can terminate the listing agreement early.
Thank you so much for allowing me to help you with your questions. I have done my best to provide information which fully addresses your question. If you have any follow up questions, please ask!

I thank you in advance for taking the time to provide me a positive rating!
This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that absolutely no commission would be due, but, I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you. ………..I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!
