We have a similar situation with a local auctioneer and realtor. A realtor attends all the local auctions and there are a lot of them. The realtor was buying them and then selling for a profit. The Auctioneer although he appreciated the realtor, the auctioneer was getting flack from property owners.
Now the realtor has the property purchaser, us, pay him his “fee” and then we close on the properety at the price it sold for at the auction.
