Identifying Potential REALTORS® To Refer To

It’s ideal if you know a great REALTOR® that works in the location where your friend wants to purchase or sell. But what do you do if you want to refer them somewhere where you don’t know anyone? RRS understands this and we’ve put together some suggestions of how to identify great potential REALTORS®.

Tips on Interviewing Potential REALTORS®

After you identify potential REALTORS® it’s important to interview them to make sure they are a good fit for the friend you are referring. You’ll want your friend to know that you’ve done your homework and truly helped them in exchange for the real estate referral commission that you’ll be receiving. Check out our page on suggested interview questions for REALTORS®.

Using a Referral Agreement

Once you’ve identified the REALTOR® or REALTORS® that you’d like to recommend to your friend, the next step is to get a referral agreement with the chosen REALTOR®. Your friend will not be involved in this agreement, but you will need signatures from the other agent and their broker. We make this process easy for you. You just provide us the names and contact information of the parties involved and we send out the referral agreement for electronic signatures. Go to our referral agreement page to learn more.
