Does anyone know: in the sale of real property, does each buyer have a realtor, and the seller have his own realtor, like over here?

Thanks!

Hi,
It's a while since we bought in France but, as far as I remember, the seller chooses a 'notaire' (legal person) and can sell privately or through an agency (realtor?) or several agencies. The buyer, if interested, can use the same notaire (impartial) which makes the process quicker, but I think they can choose their own if they wish.
