As a buyer I have had my agent move to another office and the deal was finished with the broker working for me instead of the agent.

The agent can only work for ONE broker.  

If agent changes offices, they no longer work for the old broker or own any of their deals.

Of course that can be changed by what the office policy manual says and agreement of BOTH brokers...the new broker and old broker.

If I fired an agent, they did not get to finish what they were working on.  They did however get paid something on it as did the new agent.

No; that is highly atypical since when that happens, the original listing agent i giving up a huge share of their commission.

Yes I moved office and the brokerage insisted another agent finish up. I tagged along and did all the work anyway, then I had to forgo my commission. Glad I was already leaving it cemented my decision. I would not have minded sharing but got zip. The deal closed smoothly.

It happens. All listings are the broker's. Listing agent leaves, broker takes over and or assigns an agent.

Ugh...That's a nightmare.  This happened to me.  I left a firm and the Broker sent letters to all my listings saying, "I'll be representing you now."  All of them terminated their listing agreements and once they expired all of them had new MLS numbers.  It's. A. Nightmare.

Yes. In Pennsylvania the listing is with the broker not the agent. If the agent leaves the broker the listing stays with the broker who will assign another agent to take over. 

Does the original agent get paid? It depends on the broker.

No, I have not.

However, should such occur on a statically relevant number, the importance of the real estate agent may become apparent.

This is a good object lesson for newbie agents. When you sign that agreement with the broker, make sure you understand just how the broker can hurt you.
