Rocky Mountain Relocation & Referral Network

1. What Is Rocky Mountain Relocation & Referral Network?

Rocky Mountain Relocation & Referral Network [ RMRRN ] is a professional real estate brokerage for licensed real estate agents who do not engage in transactional real estate. RMRRN Members assist buyers and sellers with their real estate needs by referring them into the network. RMRRN's professional Referral Coordinators then place the referral with an agent who will represent the buyers or sellers in their real estate transaction.

2. How Is Rocky Mountain Relocation & Referral Network Different From A Traditional Real Estate Brokerage?

RMRRN is a NON-REALTORŪ company. RMRRN Members do not pay REALTORŪ dues or MLS fees. Many traditional brokerages are REALTORŪ affiliated companies that require their agents to become Members of the REALTORŪ organizations. Their agents may also be required to join the MLS.

The Difference:
Referral Agent
Traditional Agent
Hold an active Montana Real Estate license
Earn annual continuing education credits
Pay REALTOR® membership dues
Pay MLS fees
Represent buyers & sellers in transactions
Incur transactional liability
Commission income for closed transactions
Designate the agent who receives the referral
Place customers into the referral network

3. What Time Commitment Is Required Of A RMRRN Member?

Because RMRRN agents do not represent buyers or sellers, they avoid the responsibility and time commitment of representing buyers and sellers in transactions. RMRRN Members can enjoy the freedom to pursue other interests.

4. How Do RMRRN Members Earn Income?

All RMRRN referral fees are 25%. RMRRN Members receive a portion of this referral fee for any client they refer into the network that results in a closed transaction. The remainder of the referral fee is paid to the network in lieu of membership fees.

5. How Does The RMRRN Referral Process Work?

RMRRN Members refer prospective buyers and sellers to the network. RMRRN Referral Coordinators place this business with a transaction agent. When the transaction closes and RMRRN receives the referral fee from the transaction agent, then the RMRRN Member receives their portion of the referral fee.

6. Can Referrals Be Placed Outside Montana?

RMRRN referrals can be placed nation-wide. Agents receiving referrals will be qualified for experience, ability and area knowledge. Berkshire Hathaway Montana Properties agents will be given preference when placing referrals in Montana.

7. What Is The Benefit Of RMRRN Profession Referral Coordinators?

In most real estate markets, the roster of licensed agents who represent buyers and sellers is varied. Our Professional Referral Coordinators screen these agents to place referrals with someone who has the knowledge, ability and experience to close the transaction. Our coordinators also provide this service for our partner company, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Montana Properties, and are familiar with their individual agents areas of expertise.
