* Our largest group of top agents belong to the SmartHomeSearch network. Simply fill out the Seller Broker or Buyer Broker applications to be included in this network. These brokers pay only a 15% referral fee on buyer side commissions if the sale is under $200,000 and 25% on the buyer’s side commission if the sale is over $200,000. Listing and international referral fees are always 25%. Depending on the circumstance, SmartHomeSearch brokers may be referred in any of the eight (8) sources of SkyFor leads.
* Special discounted referral fees apply to brokers who are members of SkyFor-affiliated not-for-profit exclusive buyer agent trade associations. If you are with a company that specializes in representing only buyers, consider joining one of these special trade groups:
The National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents (NAEBA). NAEBA members pay a discounted referral fee for all price level leads for buyer referrals. The entire brokerage must be made up of only exclusive buyer agents and the company must have no MLS listings. NAEBA agents get referrals from all sources of SkyFor leads.
The Colorado Exclusive Buyer Agents Association (CEBAA). CEBAA members pay a discounted referral fee for all price level leads for buyer referrals. The entire brokerage must be made up of only exclusive buyer agents and the company must have no MLS listings. CEBAA agents get referrals from all sources of SkyFor leads that involve a Colorado Buyer Referral.
* If your company does have listings, but practices single agency, see about joining the Massachusettts Association of Buyer Agents (MABA). MABA is open to members who not only practice in Massachusetts, but also all of the states surrounding Massachusetts.
MABA allows both single agent companies and exclusive buyer agent companies to be members. The single agency companies do have listings, but provide protected representation options for consumers. To belong to this association, companies must embrace the practice of not representing both parties in the same transaction within the same office. The buyer may elect to have outside buyer representation for that company’s listings.
* If you have a buyer who needs a referral outside of your service area, and do not have time to place it yourself, Skyfor staff will take excellent care of your buyer for you. We give back 50% of the referral fee. See the Brokerage Participation program.
