    I had a broker sell my biggest domain for several million dollars, and I was happy with the deal (after over a year of negotiations with various buyers), but after the sale I found out the broker was getting a commission from the buyer (as a finders fee) in addition to the 10% commission he was getting from me. Had he disclosed this to me, I would not have had a problem with it, but it seemed like a huge conflict of interest in my opinion to not have told me about it. In a real estate deal, it would have been illegal for him to do that without full disclosure.
