Some great answers here but some things not covered. If you truly believe the pricing is set right you can always ask an agent for a reduced fee to coordinate the transaction and ensure you have all paperwork and everything is done to legal code of Virginia. The agent does not have deal with advertising, showings, ect or have to pay the other agent for bring in clients. I would take that deal any day while making sure everything went smoothly for both parties call me if you need assistance.

All you have to do is list your property with a real estate agent and he/she will do the rest. Real estate agents will often only show homes listed with other agents and most websites requires the property to be listed with an agent in order to show up.
