You really need to review the listing agreement you signed. If it automatically goes month to month until you cancel then you could be stuck paying them if the deal goes through. If the agreement expired then you don't have to pay them. You also need to remove their sign asap!

If it is month to month and assumes continuance unless otherwise terminated then you do owe a fee. On principle - if the broker was actively representing the property (eg marketing, showing the property to prospective buyers) then you also are likely to owe a fee.
the agency laws vary by state of course
