When buyer and seller use the same agent
Toronto Star
I'm selling my home and my salesperson has offered to lower their commission if the buyer is also represented by them. Is that allowed? The situation you're describing is known as multiple representation. Since your agreement is with the brokerage, it arises whenever you and the buyer are working with the same brokerage, even if you are dealing with different representatives.

Canada's unemployment rate improved, falling a tenth of a point to seven per cent last month, but that was mostly due to a decline in the size of labour pool as fewer people looked for work.

Landing a great real estate deal can be a humbling experience
The Washington Post
In this business, finding and securing the right deal is everything. There is no real estate magic and there is no contractor good enough to bail you out of a bad purchase decision. My real estate mojo is powerful but it can always be defeated by the real estate ego.
