Referral Agents

Realty Partners LLC - FL Licensed Real Estate Broker

What is a Referral Agent?

A real estate Referral Agent is a licensed agent that can legally get paid by giving buyer and seller leads to licensed agents. Without the license it is ILLEGAL for an agent to pay you for a referral fee. As a Referral Agent you DO NOT show or list houses, nor have access to the MLS, or handle the paperwork.

As a Referral Agent you DO NOT join an association or become a REALTOR – saving you thousands per year. You change and become a full agent by joining an association in FL, and switch to our regular brokerage at any time.

EXAMPLE of how you can make money:
Suppose you have a FL License, live in Virginia, and have a friend in Ohio that wants to sell their house and buy a house in Maine. You can find an agent in Ohio to sell that house, and an agent in Maine to help them buy a house. You can ask the other agent for whatever fee you want and they sign an agreement before you give them your friend’s information. In this example you wanted 30% for the sale and 25% for the purchase.
Ohio: 300,000 sale price w/agent getting 3% = 10,000. You get 30% of that so $3000 – broker fee of 25% = $2,250.
Maine: 500,000 purchase price w/agent getting 2.5% = $12,500. You get 25% of that so $3125 – broker fee of 25% = $2344
You made $4594 by helping 1 friend connect with 2 agents.
