The broker then began to put the landowner in contact with various potential buyers.
In an email, the landowner informed the broker that he would pay a 6% commission for each buyer put on the table by the broker who closes on the property in question. The real estate agent eventually put the owner in touch with a representative of Race Trac. The broker was emailed in the current negotiations, but failed. After further negotiations, without the broker`s participation, a company linked to Race Trac signed a contract for the purchase of one of the land on the land concerned. The broker then demanded that he receive his 6% commission. The owner of the land did not respond. Paragraph 5.F – County.
