We select brokers solely on the basis of being a good fit with the information you provide on our Transaction Registration form for type and size of transaction, as well as your specific neighborhood(s). That’s because we believe your top priority should be to get the best deal with your upcoming transaction. We do not select brokers simply because they may be charitable. Then we ask if they are interested in a possible referral. If they say yes, we can present them as one of the options for you to choose from. If you already have a broker in mind, we will make the same arrangements with them. In our experience, it’s rare for brokers to decline a referral opportunity.
