At our Company (Help-U-Sell), we charge a set fee for our services, as opposed to the traditional 6 percent commission, which, in turn, helps you to retain a greater amount of equity while still receiving all the real estate services you expect.
Our agents are fully licensed professionals, members of the local Board of Realtors and of the National Association of RealtorsÂ®, work with both Buyers and Sellers, and provide a full range of real estate services.
Our unique marketing strategies drive a steady stream of traffic to our website and offices, which results in many buyers for our listings and many new listings. Additionally, our streamlined operations and cost efficiencies translate into low overhead and savings that we pass along to consumers with our low set fee.

All commissions are negotiated between Seller and agent, and all depends on what the expectations are. If you are expecting the agent to do open houses every weekend, do major marketing, virtual tours then you really want full service. Real estate is one of the few services a consumer can get where there is no payment until a successful closing, the agent pays for all the marketing & more out of pocket with no guarantee of a closing.
Interview at least 2 agents to find one you can work with and communicate well with and figure out a plan that works for everyone.
That being said you can also explore the services of a limited service listing only company for "for sale by owners" FSBO for a fee they will place your home on the MLS, you handle everything else. You can find them on the Internet. Your success as a FSBO will largely depend on your ability to deal with Buyers objectively. Many Sellers that start this way end up using a full service agent.
I think what is more important is finding an agent you trust and will do what it takes to get your home sold quickly and for the highest price possible. Oftentimes if an agent is willing to discount their commission they are also going to reduce the marketing they do for your home and when it comes to negotiating with a buyer they will cave in there as well.
I would recommend you interview 2-3 agents and make your decision based on what they are going to do to help get your home sold quickly.
