A licensee sat on an open house in a 55+ community for his broker.  While there, another agent brought a couple by to see the house.  The visiting agent was unfamiliar with the community and its many amenities.  

The house-sitting licensee answered the couple's questions about the community, the house model, the listing, etc. and enthusiastically shared information about the many community activities, CC&Rs, and other info that their agent didn't know. The couple became very enthusiastic and offered to give a deposit on the house then and there.

An hour or so later, the agent called the house-sitting licensee with a full price all cash/30-day close offer.  When the house-sitting agent notified his broker, the broker told him he would get no commission because it wasn't his listing and he hadn't written the offer.

In your experience, is that fair?  What are your thoughts?
