We listed a rental property with an agent then decided that one partner will buy the rest of us out. How should we handle the commission?

I want to be fair to the agent. I'm sure we could just pull the house off the market, do the buyout among ourselves and not pay any commission, but that doesn't seem right. My partner already owns 45% of the property, so he will be buying 55% of the property. The agent will not have to do any more work now. We'll handle all the negotiations and everything internally. Maybe we should pay the agent a commission based on the 55% that is changing hands? What do y'all think?
