What’s better: a well-informed real estate agent or cheaper commission?

We found a real estate agent who charges 5% commission to sell our home (2% for herself, 3% for buyer’s agent). Is that a good deal? She really knows the area, especially the townhouse community in which we live, so we figure that it’s better to have a real estate agent who knows the market and can get our house sold fast rather than trying to find someone else who charges less commission.

We want to know what you all think. Thanks!
