Featuring vendors at your open houses and in listing presentations can help you and your sellers!  Promote your vendors with a flyer and signage in exchange for client discounts.


A home sells best when it shows best:  we all know this. But sellers don’t always have the money, time, or connections to make it happen. Staging, yard work, fresh paint, and interior repairs by a trusted resource —all necessary for a quick sale at a good price—can be overwhelming. You can help by forging partnerships with local experts. Find a landscaper, a painter, a handy person who will do the work for your clients at a discount in exchange for promotion. You can:

  • Display signs around the property with the vendors’ information
  • Allow vendors to display brochures inside the home
  • Create flyers for your listing that include names and contact information of all vendors who worked on the property
  • Include these vendors and their services in your listing presentation

This relationship is a win-win-win. First, you have happy, grateful clients; second, a home that will most likely sell faster and for a better price; and third, you maximize the network within your own community: After all, since your referrals strengthen those vendors’ businesses, you can expect referrals in return.

And, to take advantage of referrals that aren't in your preferred price point, property type or area, consider using ReferralExchange. We'll match your referral with 3 great agents and pay you a 25% referral fee when the deal closes!
