It's illegal for a licensed real estate broker to share a commission with a non licensed customer. Your broker most likely plans to attend the closing and receive his full commission, which is 50% of the full fee. Sorry, but there is nothing you can do about it. Perhaps your broker might buy you a nice house warming gift.
