The only way to find out what your listing contract says is to read it. We do not have it so we can’t read it.
What you are asking for is legal advice on a specific case. It would be appropraite for you to have a lawyer read the contract and advise you. There are differnt kinds of listing contracts, and there may be parts of your contract that require a legal opinion.
In general when you sign a listing contract, and buyer and seller come together during the contract period, the commission is earned. That is what a broker gets paid for, bringing the buyer and seller together.
