Many agents practice this. What those who do fail to realize is every sale is a seed planted for a future referral.
When they focus on the commission rather than getting their buyer the best deal they do themselves and the buyer a disservice.
I may sound crazy, BUT I d not look at the commission% when I search for homes for my buyers. I look for their specs and price. I email them my findings and show them the homes they decide to view.
We have to put service above self!

A good agent absolutely will show homes to their client regardless of the co-broke offered. Not all agents, however, are good agents and some will only look at those with a certain co-broke as they feel it's not worth their time otherwise.
Having said that, while there's no standardized commission or co-broke, it generally is in the best interest of a seller to offer what would appear to be the "normal" co-broke. If you're asking whether it would be an issue, then you probably already know it may be an issue, right or wrong.
And so, a good agent will show every property that meets their client's needs, irrespective of the commission being offered.
Now, does that mean that I don't look at the commission.... no, of course it doesn't. But I won't take a home out of the viewing que, simply because they're offering a low co-op fee. I have shown a property that was offering only $100.00. Yep, that's right, you read it correctly... one-hundred-dollars. I held my breath, during the showing, hoping against hope that my client wouldn't like the property... but I did show it. And I believe any good agent would, if it met their client's needs.
