When we think about how to succeed in sales, it seems natural to consider how to “beat” the competition. But, what if we told you that the secret to getting ahead in real estate is actually “teaming up” with your competition?
By now, you’ve probably heard the term “referral.”
What exactly does this entail and how can you take better advantage of this underutilized pipeline in your business?
As defined by The Close
, “A real estate referral is the act of getting a client into the hands of the person who is the most qualified to get them the real estate services they need.” Of course, this doesn’t happen for free. If and when a deal occurs as the result of a referral, the referring agent will receive a percentage of that agent’s commission. There’s a lot of chatter around what all is entailed in a real estate referral: How much is a real estate referral fee? How to you take the awkwardness out of negotiating such a fee?
