What is ReferralExchange?

ReferralExchange allows real estate agents to create referrals for clients they can't service for any reason. ReferralExchange will connect these clients to up to three agents from our network of top-performing agents nationwide, based on each client's unique needs.

ReferralExchange is a partner of, an online, free consumer-direct service that connects home buyers and sellers with local, top-performing real estate professionals.

You say that you have a network of top real estate agents across the country. What do you mean by "our network"?

Our network is comprised of over 20,000 top-performing real estate agents from large and boutique brokerages nationwide. All are referral and area experts.

How do I know that I can trust the caliber of your agents?

We personally research and recruit all of our agents based on their location, property focus, and annual results. Agents must be invited into our network, based on stringent requirements, and they cannot pay to join. Referral agreements are already in place, and our agents are familiar with the entire referral process. Our agents have an average 5+ year tenure in our network, and they can act quickly to ensure the best possible experience for you and your clients.

What type of clients/referrals can I submit?

Submit any extra clients/referrals that you don't have the time or resources to follow-up on or manage:

  • Out-of-area
  • Any leads or referrals outside of your preferred price point or property type
  • Past clients
  • Acquaintances, friends, and family members
  • Raw, web-based leads

Is there a limit to the number of clients I can refer?

No. Your membership enables you to submit as many clients/referrals as you wish.

Can I only submit "hot" clients/referrals?

No. Submit any clients/referrals you wish - hot or cold. We'll contact each one to determine interest level and viability. If the buyer or seller is ready for an agent, we'll take it from there.

What portion of the referral process do you manage?

We do all the work for you. Simply submit your request, and we'll send your clients up to three top agents within one business day once we've contacted them to verify interest. You have the option to be as involved or uninvolved as you choose. We have personally researched and qualified every agent in our network. Referral agreements are already in place, and these agents are committed to providing the best possible experience for you and your clients.
