Can a person own a home and just because they are a Realtor get the commission at closing?

I know someone that sold her home but advertised it through her realty agency, and was friends with another realty agent. She was the owner of the home but at the closing she got a realty commission along with the money for being the owner. Is that legal? Can you be the owner and realtator too? Is that against RESPA rules? Can someone answer this for me
