We get calls sometimes from agents who have changed brokers and feel that their former broker owes them commission from a transaction that they worked on before they left. Generally, these situations come down to what the agent and former broker agreed to regarding commission payments. This is great example of why it’s important for an agent and broker to have a clear, written independent contract agreement, such as the Independent Contractor Agreement for Sales Associate (2301) provided exclusively to Texas REALTORS®.
