I know it's a Bad Idea - But I am doing it.. Maybe...

I am listing a close friend from church's property. It will be listed at $215K. It's shows well and competitively priced, so I am not too worried that it won't sell - except....
 
The catch is that she wants the "family" discount of 3% total commission.
Being the "nice" lady that she is - she wants me to keep the 3% and not necessarily pay out a co-op Broker commission.
 
I am toying with the idea of offering a flat $1500 commission or not listing it on the MLS at all - and doing my best to locate a buyer myself - to collect the 3% commission.
 
What is the best way to navigate this? Particularly if I list it on the MLS - I know I can offer no Co-op fee - but what would be the value of listing it on the MLS? Well, in the event that a Buyer is willing to pay for the services of his/her realtor - there is still value there...
 
Thoughts...
