In order to earn income as a real estate referral agent, you must have your real estate license. You must also be connected with a brokerage that can receive and process the commissions you receive from making referrals. You cannot receive commissions for referrals unless you are part of a brokerage, or have a broker’s license yourself.
Once you have your real estate license and are part of a brokerage, you can begin working as a real estate referral agent. Make sure to market your services widely, from social media to your website to any other place where you can make yourself visible to clients looking for referrals. Staying connected in major markets where clients are looking to buy property will help generate leads for your business as a real estate referral agent.
