No, you do not. Real estate brokers and agents provide a very valuable service. Bringing parties together to get deals done is extremely valuable. And a good realtor that can help you find a buyer is well worth the commission.
If you already have a tenant buyer then you do not need an agent. An real estate attorney can assist you with your contract and the closing process.
However, if you used a real estate agent to help you find a tenant, you may be contractually obligated to pay your real estate agent a commission if you signed an agreement to do so. In which case, you should just use your real estate agent. If you circumvent your real estate agent then they will have a claim against you.
