Realtor Referral Program

Making a Business Relationship

Often times Real Estate Agents and Realtors are asked by their clients to help them sell an on-going business. For a variety of reasons, it may not be a duty that you are willing to accept. 

Refer the client to Business Broker Dan Smith, he specializes in the sale of privately-held companies. 


Submit your Referrals

Use the contact form to register your contact and lead information.

When you encounter someone that wants to sell an operating business, whether they own the real estate or not, email Dan that referral/lead. Also, if you encounter someone that is interested in buying an operating business or start-up, please refer them to Dan as well.

We do the Hard Work

Once a referral is submitted, Dan will then make contact with the Referrring Broker, and subsequently the prospect.

Once we complete our inital client visit with the prospect, Dan will follow up with the Referring Broker to keep them informed on the outcome of the meeting and status of the lead. When your lead is signed up and listed, or the buyer engages us to help with his/her business search, Dan will send you an email confirmation with a referral fee projection should the listing referral or buyer referral result in a sale.

You get Paid

Our standard brokerage fee schedule starts at 12% of the sale price of the business -or- $12,000 whichever is greater.

Business listings are Exclusive and typically for an inital term of 1 year. The Referring Broker referral fee is 20% of the sell-side of the brokerage fee -or- 20% of the buy-side of the fee. Unless there are special circumstances, the referral fee will be no less than $1,200. Referral fees are paid direct to the Referring Broker.

Referral Fee Calculation Example:

  • Business is listed and sold for $300,000
  • CIBB's Brokerage fee = $18,000 for listing side and $18,000 for the buy-side of the transaction
  • Referring Broker is paid $18,000 x 20% = $3,600
