Half of that fee is the "listing portion" of the commission (3% in this example) and this amount goes directly to the firm that lists your home in the MLS. The other half, the "selling portion" or "buyer agent's fee" of 3% goes to the real estate agent who procures a buyer for your home. If the listing agent sells your home without a buyer agent's involvement, their company gets the entire 6%.
