You did nothing wrong! She sounds horribly unprofessional. I have purchased several properties, and my realtor always buys me a small “congratulations” present after each closing. If she doesn’t collect her commission, that’s her issue with the seller’s broker, not yours.

And congrats on the new house! So exciting!

She doesnt sound like a good agent if for some reason you dont close, find a new one.


If she isnt making any money on the sale, than that is her fauly. Typically, the agents split the fee, and if they do not, then it is up to them to determine how they will get paid before hand by putting it in the contract you signed with her. This is her problem at this point, not hers.

@ExcitedScaredBee:  +1, our realtor bought us a lavender plant knowing that it’s my favorite so we’d have something to plant to celebrate and remember year after year. She’s supposed to be a “professional” and celebrate with you, not pout because she didn’t get her way. She typically gets 3% commission but not from you, split with the other agent. She probably screwed over other agents and they chose to stop splitting their commissions with her.

Congrats on closing!  Your realtor sounds very unprofessional.  The buying and selling realtor arrange to split the fee between themselves, and that’s done without the buyer or seller’s involvement.  You have the house now and that’s what matters.  If you want, write an honest online review of her or the agency and move on.  And for comparison, I had a really awesome realtor and I think he just gave us a card and a 20% off coupon to Lowe’s when we closed.  We didn’t give him any kind of gift.  We’ll probably send him a card when we get married though because we’re getting married in the house’s backyard.

She’s totally unprofessional. And there’s no way she didn’t make her commission. She was just trying to guilt you. It would take extraordinary circumstances (ie you guys negotiating with her for her to cut her commission to make the sale happen/lower the price) for her commission to get cut.
