WHEREAS REALTY CONNECT is an independently owned and operated real estate brokerage business in this state at the above address; and

WHEREAS contractor has been issued a real estate (salesperson’s/broker’s) license by this State and is desirous of availing himself/herself of the services and opportunities offered by Realty Connect.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises and mutual covenants herein contained, it is hereby agreed as follows:

1. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR: Contractor shall be deemed to be an independent contractor. Contractor shall be free to devote to his real estate sales efforts such portion of his entire time, energy, effort and skill as he sees fit and to establish his own endeavors. Contractor shall not have mandatory duties except those imposed by law or regulation and those specifically set out in this Agreement. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be regarded as creating any relationship (employer/employee, joint venture, partnership, shareholder) between the parties other than the independent contractor relationship as set forth herein. Contractor is, and shall be treated by REALTY CONNECT as, and independent contractor (statutory nonemployee) and not an employee for state tax and for all other purposes. The salesperson (Contractor) will not be treated as an employee with respect to the services performed by such salesperson (Contractor) as a real estate agent for federal tax purposes. Contractor hereby acknowledges that he has been advised by Realty Connect that as an independent contractor (non-employee) affiliated with Realty Connect, he/she is responsible for the withholding and payment of all his/her own federal income taxes and his/her own self-employment taxes (FICA), together with any and all corresponding state, county and local taxes, if any, and Contractor hereby agrees to meet such responsibilities. Contractor hereby waives any claims he has or may have against Realty Connect now or in the future respecting such taxes or the right of Realty Connect not to withhold, not to pay or not to contribute to such taxes on behalf of Contractor. Contractor shall not hire, employ, contract with, retain, hold the license of, or sponsor for license any real estate broker or salesperson. 1099’s shall be issued to the contractor by each January 31st using the information provided on the previous page.

2. Realty Connect RESPONSIBILITIES: Realty Connect agrees that in consideration of the services of and the fees and expenses to be paid by Contractor, Realty Connect shall, while this Agreement remains in force, at the option of the Contractor: (a) make available to Contractor tools required to submit real estate referrals and (b) transmit to Contractor promptly the difference between 100% of all commissions received by Realty Connect as a result of the efforts of Contractor and amounts belonging to Realty Connect.

3. LICENSEE RESPONSIBILITIES: Contractor agrees to keep his/her license active and in good standing. This includes paying the appropriate fees, completing all required Continuing Education courses, and any other licensing requirements in the state you are licensed in. Referral Agent is an independent contractor and agrees to pay for all of his/her taxes and related expenses. Broker is not responsible for Referral Agent’s failure to pay any required taxes. If the Referral Agent’s License is revoked, suspended, or not renewed for any reason, this agreement shall automatically terminate.

4. LIMITATIONS: Contractor agrees that he/she will NOT actively engage in the Real Estate Business. This includes, but is not limited to, selling or offering to sell or negotiate the purchase, sale or exchange of Real Estate, lease, rent, or offer to rent any Real Estate, or to negotiate leases thereof, accepting deposits, writing or executing Real Estate related documents, contracts, etc.

5. AFFILIATION FEE PLANS: The standard fees to be charged for services performed under this agreement is 25%-75% of the Referral side of the commission received by the Broker. Broker agrees to pay 100% of the gross Referral fee (-$295 transaction fee.) Realty Connect offers 4 programs our agents can participate in. They are:

25% referral fee – $295 transaction fee

Our most popular program! Anytime your referral is placed within our nationwide network of over 15,000 agents, we take care of the entire process of matching, managing, tracking, servicing & accounting for your referral. Our network agents are vetted, qualified, experienced with referral agreements already in place. You receive 100% of the 25% referral fee we collect on your behalf – our $295 transaction fee. However, our process is completely streamlined and user-friendly. Just make a referral, then sit back and wait for your check. In case you did not know, we serve EVERY zip code in ALL 50 states, so anyone that you know that is buying or selling in the U.S. is a potential referral opportunity!

Ex: $400,000 sale x 3% commission = $12,000 x 25% – $295 transaction fee = $2,705.

[?]% referral fee – $295 transaction fee

Many agents ask “Can I choose the agents my referrals go to?” The answer is yes and the benefit to this is that you can negotiate any referral fee percentage that is agreeable between you and the agent you’re referring this business to. However, if you select your own agent, be aware we have not vetted these agents and are unable to verify the high-quality standards we have for our network agents. Also, our ability to manage, track, service, and account for your referral as well as the collection of the referral fee requires extra time and effort from our service team since they are not in our network. For that reason, if you select your own out-of-network agent, YOU will be responsible for securing an executed referral agreement (click here) that will need to be signed by agents and principal brokers of both firms. Any verbal agreement not in writing and signed by the 2 principal brokers of BOTH firms is completely unenforceable. Also, please note you will need to have an executed referral agreement in place for EACH client and EVERY transaction you refer AND you need to provide us a copy of that referral agreement signed by that agent’s broker. Otherwise, Realty Connect will legally lose ALL ability to collect any referral fee on your behalf. If you choose your own agent, please specify in your referral agreement whether your referral is buying only? Selling only? Buying and selling? Since we are relying on you for these details, we’re unable to assume any liability if you do not complete the referral agreement as instructed above or if important details are missing that would affect our ability to collect a referral fee on your behalf.

Ex: $400,000 sale x 3% commission = $12,000 x [you decide]% – $295 transaction fee = $[?]

(Call Dana 703.762.6218) = 75% referral fee – $295 transaction fee

Builders generally offer a 3% buyer’s agent commission for agents that bring them buyers. Of that 3%, you receive 75%. This 75% referral fee is for you and/or any of your NEW CONSTRUCTION buyers that purchase a to-be-built or immediate delivery new home through a builder with onsite community sales reps ONLY. Each builder has their own rules and guidelines, but many request the agent accompanies the buyer on their FIRST visit. Since that’s not always possible, when you have a new construction client, make sure they know to verbally express to the builder sales that you are their agent (the builder sales rep will ALWAYS ask). Otherwise, you may not qualify for the 3% commission.

Ex: $400,000 sale x 3% commission = $12,000 x 75% – $295 transaction fee = $8,705

*Select Markets Only = 50% discount & 50% referral fee – $0 transaction fee

For Realty Connect agents that are buying or selling a home themselves, we would appreciate the opportunity to represent you and have a special program for those agents that are willing to do some of the “legwork” involved. By selecting us as your representation, there are 3 main benefits to you: (1) As one of our own agents, we already know you and will likely have a better sense of your needs and goals. (2) If we represent you, we’re able to offer special deals – 50% discounts for sellers & 50% referral fees for buyers – compared to a standard 25% referral. (3) Also, for any personal business, we waive the $295 transaction fee.

Ex: $400,000 sale x 3% commission = $12,000 x 50% – $0 transaction fee = $6,000.

6. COMMISSION ADVANCES: Our firm does not participate in commission advances via third-party companies that offer such money advancing services to REALTORS in general.

7. SUPERVISION: Contractor shall act as a real estate sales agent subject to the real estate license laws and regulations of the state(s), the bylaws of the local board(s), the Code of Ethics of the National Association of Realtors and under the supervision/control of REALTY CONNECT and/or the principal broker/managing broker(s) responsible for the REALTY CONNECT office management.

8. LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION: REALTY CONNECT shall not be liable to Contractor for any expenses incurred by him/her, nor shall Contractor have authority to bind REALTY CONNECT by any promise or representation unless specifically authorized in advance and in writing by REALTY CONNECT. Contractor further agrees to pay all fines, damages, costs, and expenses, including but not limited to attorney fees and the full amount of any errors and omissions
insurance deductible assessed against or incurred by REALTY CONNECT and/or its officers in defending or satisfying any claim or judgment against REALTY CONNECT and/or its officers because of Contractor’s activity, even if such claim or judgment is brought or filed subsequent to the expiration or termination of this Agreement or any renewals or extensions hereof.
