Thanks everyone for their feedback ... We spoke to both agents again.

When I let agent #1 know we were not going with them due to their 5% they did not offer to match or lower their rate. Only to say that the rate is not the only factor when selecting a great agent and that only good agents would get you more money and able to negotiate better especially if there are more than 1 offer. I guess trying to justify their 5% with their negotiating skills, more fancy flyers, full staging, more ads in newspapers and their website.

Agent #2 although does not advertise as agent #1 does in newspapers and weekly flyers etc, Relies on networking, their larger brokerage located here in town, and MLS and real estate boards.

Agent #2 has taken multiple offers on this home before and got over list. They are also listing another home on this same street.
