If your seller and buyer both understand your role in the deal and what your profit will be; and they are both comforable with it there is less of a chance that they will have a problem with it.
Besides, they will have access to the public record so I don’t think it’s a good idea to conceal anything from the people I work with.
They are not “entitled” to anything outside of what is public record, but as a matter of good business I make it my policy to be honest about that info. It minimizes a lot of potential problems.
