If property is in MLS, simply go to another broker and the commission will be split. Even if it is an exclusive listing, and the broker has never showed it to you, then he may have a hard time proving he was the “procuring cause” if you waited until the listing expired. In any event, it’s really not your concern. If the sellers will deal with you, whatever commissions are due are their responsibility.
