With Alabama real estate referral programs, you as the listing agent hand off the management of the property that you sold to someone else. There are a few common problems that many real estate agents run into, and we’re discussing those today and sharing some tips for how we ensure a successful Alabama property management referral program.
Putting Your Reputation at Risk
You are really staking your reputation with that company that you use to refer your clients for property management. We understand that, and that’s why working with a company like ours – which is the top rated property management company in Alabama on Google and Yelp – is important. We can’t make everyone happy, but people love us and whether you talk to our owners or our tenants, they are happy. We are always working on perfecting our service delivery, and that’s what you need to protect your reputation with your clients.
Maintaining Client Relationships
You want to make sure the property comes back to you when it’s time to sell. We put an agreement in writing to ensure you get that brokerage commission back at the end of the relationship. We touch base with you throughout the year to let you know what’s going on with your client, and when the time comes to sell the property, you’ll get that commission back.
You should be compensated adequately, and another problem real estate agents run into with these programs is that they only earn $100 or $200 per referral, or they earn nothing. We pay you considerably better, and we make sure it’s a rewarding relationship.
Everyone has had the experience of referring a professional – whether it’s a plumber or an electrician or an appraiser – and the service is not up to par. When that happens, you get a phone call and a complaint. You won’t have to worry about that with us. We provide outstanding service.
Make more money, make it count, and get it faster. That’s what we’re about.
