My company, http://www.DeremerRealtyGroup. does NOT charge these extra fees.
Always moving forward,
This is actually the norm in Las Vegas, and all major brokerages do charge some sort of fee per transaction that the agents must either collect from their clients or they end up paying it themselves. (After the split with the broker the agent may end up making almost nothing if they pay for this fee unless the home is quite expensive.)
The fee is variable by brokerage, however. Our company charges $350, which is one of the lowest in town. I am assuming you signed a buyer brokerage with this agent? You will have to read the terms of the contract to find out if you have the right to cancel. But again, a fee like this is very common in Las Vegas.
Hope this helps!

This is a fee that is imposed by the broker. If you object to your agent, your agent will very likely pay this FOR YOU. The broker chants to the agent, "Get it from the client." This is entirely a revenue augmentation scheme of the BROKER, which no agent likes.
My broker does exactly the same thing, and I do pay the fee because it is simply immoral.
Do you know what i really ironic?
Most brokerages are PAPERLESS!!!!! Do you see my point?
