Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. Proves a Brokerage Commission is Owed

By Adam Leitman Bailey


Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. took on a case for a broker who scouted out a new listing by visiting an apartment. After leaving the apartment, the broker enters the elevator and meets the next-door neighbor, and by the time they got to the ground floor, ALBPC’s broker client brings the neighbor back to the apartment, and she makes an offer and purchases the apartment.  However, the seller’s broker claims ALBPC’s client does not deserve a commission and definitely not half of the commission.

Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.’s client claims that although he met the client in the elevator and did no work other than take the elevator ride, he deserved half of the commission. In a settlement, ALBPC’s client received half the commission. For the hearing, ALBPC researched every case on the subject, detailing the history of the law and demonstrating every case supporting that a ready, willing and able buyer was presented to the seller and all terms were met to collect the commission no matter how little time and work the broker completed.  The seller’s broker brought no case law and relied on the equities.  Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. made a presentation that the trier of fact compared to one of Daniel Webster’s cases. When it was shown without certainty that the victory was in reach, the case settled on our clients terms.

Adam Leitman Bailey represented the client in this matter.
