Frequently Asked Questions

What is ReferralExchange and ReferralExchange LIVE?

ReferralExchange allows real estate agents to maximize their time while taking advantage of every lead and referral. We'll verify your leads and referrals to make sure the provided information is correct, contact them instantly and give them back to you when they're ready to transact, and match those clients outside of your area, price point or property type with three great agents. Now you can focus on helping your clients buy or sell homes instead of chasing down leads.

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

How does the service work?

Step 1: Simply forward your leads into ReferralExchange or upload a CSV file. Using our proprietary technology, we’ll scrub your leads in real time – showing you which leads have incorrect information, and providing correct contact data when available. You can then either follow-up with these verified leads yourself, or have us contact them on your behalf.

Step 2: Our licensed customer service team will instantly contact your leads using a proven system that qualifies and warms them up for you. We can directly transfer the client to you or provide you with their information.

You can also refer any of these scrubbed leads to our nationwide network of 140,000 agents to manage on your behalf. We’ll match these clients to the 3 best agents who fit their needs, handle the processing and paperwork, and pay you a 15% referral fee when the deal closes. Unlimited personal referrals are also included in your lifetime membership.

How often do you contact the leads during the contact process?

On average, we contact every lead via phone up to 16 times.

How does the live-transfer process work?

Once we have reached your lead on the phone and they confirm interest in speaking with you, we will call and transfer them to you. If you’re not available to immediately take the call, we will gather information about their real estate needs, take their contact information and a preferred contact time/number, and email the information to you.
