How The Referral System Works
In the last few years, many companies have entered into the business of referring people to REALTORS® in different cities. REALTORS® may pay a fee to belong to various networks and then, companies refer to these fee-paying REALTORS® whether or not they are reputable and professional. The client is taking a chance!
There is an alternative. Over the many years I have practiced real estate, I have had the opportunity to meet hundreds of REALTORS® from around the world. I’ve met some at training courses, some at special events or conferences, some in the course of various transactions and some by reputation and introduction by my clientele.
When someone is in need of a REALTOR® in an area outside of South Georgian Bay, I am happy to direct them to a reputable REALTOR® from my database. If I don’t have a contact for that particular area, I have an almost fool-proof method for finding the best REALTOR® in that locale and, I will conduct a telephone interview with them as well before making a referral recommendation.
Typically, REALTORS® are paid a referral fee by the receiving REALTOR® to compensate them for the time spent assisting the client in finding a suitable REALTOR®. There is no additional cost to the client who is being referred, no obligation to use the recommended REALTOR®, and, the client has the benefit of knowing they have been referred to a recommended REALTOR®.
If you, or someone you know, would like the name of a REALTOR® in any city anywhere in the world, just provide me with a little information below and it would be my pleasure to recommend someone great!
