The architect is lucky to get 10% of the construction fee. The broker gets 6% of the total sale which includes the value of the lot and the added value of the total property (the value of a finished building being higher usually than the dollar costs of construction which do not include mortgage and other real costs).

I sold my house without a realtor. We asked 5 K over the (prospective) realtor's gusess, the buyer added another 5 K to lock-in the deal. Who needs them, in today's market? Not the seller. Still a lot of people got a piece of the pie.
