In order for a recommendation agreement to be considered legal and binding, it must be authorized by a licensed broker. The agreement should clearly state the duration of the contract, the types of transactions covered and the agreed fees. And of course, it must be signed by both parties. A real estate recommendation tax is usually paid immediately after the closure of the client`s property. The intermediation fee corresponds to the percentage (%) of the net commission paid to the promoted real estate agency. The registered broker should send a payment request via the real estate commission invoice. Depending on your broker`s recommendations, I think your readers should know that at the end of the day, the amount of referral compensation to an agent at a full-service brokerage firm can be much lower than they would expect. I am responsible for credit and I am in the process of resuming my real estate license. Can I receive a referral fee while being the credit manager for this customer? The only problem I`ve seen is that FHA doesn`t allow you to be a loan officer and the buying broker in the same transaction. Dear Chris, I am a real estate agent in FL and I referred my client to another real estate agent in the state through florida Realtor`s referral agreement form. Note that the recommendation agreement states: “for each transaction” and also says “for each money received”. I knew that my client was making several transactions, why he was ready at 50% recommendation. However, the recommendation agreement did not have a specific expiry date or location of the transaction, so I think it is an open agreement.
The first transaction was made and I was paid. Later, my client called me to tell me that the promoted agent was not taking care of them and that they wanted to sell another house and buy why they left some time with someone else, another company, for their needs. After completing his replacement at the purchase and sale with the other company without result, I resumed the relationship between my client and the agent I had originally recommended and asked the agent to take it seriously since we still have this recommendation agreement. I was the one who put them back in touch, and I took the due diligence to make sure that my client was not yet under another representation of the company, I also took the time to discover their needs, and I transmitted entire information to the recommended agent before they reconnected both (client and agent), it is me, all coordinated to resume this activity, saying in my written communication “we have the opportunity to win back these customers” & “Let`s redevelop this together”. The house was sold, another was bought and the transferred agent never contacted me until I learned of the transactions afterwards directly from my client. Referral Brokerage never paid me a portion of the sales commission. What are the possibilities I have here? Please also note that the recommendation has been signed by agent & agent`s Broker. Many messages, emails and text messages can be shown as proof of my participation, in order to win back the client to them and follow the strategy. Can you give me your opinion on this?
