I hope you had a listing agreement with the Realtor's brokerage, there is usually time frame included and there is also term how to cancel a listing agreement. In general unless otherwise stated in the listing agreement (sometimes there are small advertising costs due whether it sells or not) the listing agent and his or her brokerage get paid the agreed upon total commission on the sale price, at the closing. If the
property listing does not lead to a contract and listing and closing there should be no commission due, unless the home owner / seller breaks a contract.
If in doubt have a real estate attorney have a look a the listing agreement....
Good Luck to you
