When signing a listing agreement, the agreement should spell out the split between the brokers. A multitenant building commission usually favors the tenant's agent by a point or two. A freestanding building usually commands an even split between the two brokers.
Due to the Sherman Antitrust Act, brokers cannot discuss "standard" or "common" broker fees. This is to deter price fixing among the brokerage industry. However, they can discuss what fees they will charge you to sell/lease your property.
