In Texas, an agent is legally due a commission only when he is the "procuring cause" of a sale. If the agent comes in after the fact, it's just a case of someone trying to horn in on a commission. If the "buyer" is willing to try and screw either you or your agent out of a piece of the commission, is this really a person you want to enter into a deal with? If so, be prepared to watch watch your back. Count your rings after you shake hands with him.
