That's the way our real estate market works here, too.

The actual split can be up to 4 ways, ~25% to each: selling broker, selling brokerage, buyer's broker, buyer's brokerage.

Haven't ever seen a scoop with NoFlex.

If that's what comes from the Amazon seller, maybe the scoop is why their product is so expensive. :)
