October 13, 2010 // Franchising.com // MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. – Weichert Referral Associates Co., Inc., an affiliated company of Weichert, Realtors®, is now operational in 24 states after receiving its brokerage license in Missouri and New Mexico. One of the nation's largest referral brokerages, Weichert Referral Associates provides licensed agents the ability to earn real estate commissions without having to invest the time, energy and money required to be a full-time agent.
"We are thrilled to extend an invitation to agents in Missouri and New Mexico to join our growing network of referral associates," said Janet Iveson, president of Weichert Referral Associates. "Now, agents or those considering getting their real estate license can have the same professional flexibility and earning potential enjoyed by our 10,000 associates throughout the country."
Anytime a referral associate learns of a family member, friend or other acquaintance who wishes to buy or sell a home, they can place that real estate lead through Weichert Referral Associates to an active full-time sales associate who then works with that client. Once that referral results into a closed sale, the referral associate receives a portion of the real estate commission.
Leads that referral associates pass along can be friends or family who are moving and need to put their house on the market, a work colleague interested in buying a summer home or a local proprietor looking to sell a property. Referral associates can also refer leads for rental units, timeshares, and commercial properties. They can refer outside of the state they are licensed in and in areas beyond the Weichert network, where the company then will refer business to local brokers.
Weichert Referral Associates Co., Inc. currently holds the licenses of over 10,000 associates who have the ability to supplement their income by referring business to full time sales associates.
