Intermediary, facilitator, middle-man, broker, etc are some words used to describe the role of an individual or agency who helps a seller, trade successfully with a buyer. Many are involved in the process either professionally or not, i.e you assist a seller in getting a buyer for his/her product/service or vice versa and you get a certain amount from the trade either as a commission in percentage or a fixed fee.
According to Wikipedia
A broker is a person or firm who arranges transactions between a buyer and a seller for a commission when the deal is executed. A broker who also acts as a seller or as a buyer becomes a principal party to the deal. Neither role should be confused with that of an agent—one who acts on behalf of a principal party in a deal.
