How can the services of the
EXODUS Network be FREE?
We do not charge anything
for our services, which include prescreening REALTORS®, connecting
you with a real estate agent, following up on each referral, evaluating
each agent, or sending moving and community information. In fact, all
of our services are free to families and individuals who are moving. In
light of that, we ask for serious buyer and seller inquiries only, please!
We do not charge clients for our referral services. Instead, we receive reimbursement for our services when our agent helps you
purchase or sell a home.
First, we need to explain how REALTORS® are paid.
REALTORS® are not paid hourly wages. REALTORS® only receive wages, in the form of a commission, when they are successful in helping assist a buyer or seller to complete a
housing transaction. The commission they earn when they help someone to close a housing transaction, is usually based on a percentage of the sale
price. (This percentage varies from state to state.)
If you work with a REALTOR® but do not purchase or sell a home through him/her, no compensation is earned.
How does this impact how EXODUS gets paid?
When EXODUS refers a family to a prescreened Selected Agent, and the Selected Agent is successful in helping the family purchase or sell a home, the REALTOR® earns a commission and agrees to share a part of the commission s/he earns with the EXODUS Network. This does not increase the price of the home or the rate of
commission in any way.
We think you will agree EXODUS offers you a great opportunity and increases your Peace of Mind when you allow EXODUS to prescreen an Agent for YOU! EXODUS gives you the assurance
that you are working with someone who is a full time professional, comes highly recommended, has a proven track record,
and is committed to service.
We do have two favors to ask:
1. Please give our agents and the EXODUS Network a fair chance to serve you.
When a Selected Agent is assigned to a moving family, that agent will begin
working right away to research the home you are wanting to sell, or the new
neighborhood(s) you are interested in moving to. Our agents are committed to
offering the best service possible and this requires adequate preparation for
each family, even before contact is made. The EXODUS Network also begins working as soon as you make the first phone call to us! Please help us help our Selected
Agents by requesting to work with an Agent only if you are seriously considering buying or
selling a home and will give our REALTOR® a fair chance to work with you. There is no obligation to use a Selected Agent that we recommend, but we do request that you honor our efforts by responding when our agent(s) call you, by being forthright about your housing situation and by allowing the agent an opportunity to present his/her services to you (preferably in a face to face meeting)! If you are considering a job offer or relocation, we are happy to provide our services even before you are completely sure that you will be moving. We understand that often housing plays a very important part in making the decision about whether you will move. We want to help you make that determination! We are simply asking that we get serious inquiries and that those who inquire not just inquire out of curiosity! Thanks in advance for your integrity! If you are simply curious about our services, keep exploring our website, or give us a call and we will be happy to explain more about our services!
2. Please let us know about your progress.
We value your input and want to make sure that your needs are being met. We
also need to know whether you have closed on a sale, decided not to move, or
chosen not to work with the Selected Agent we recommended. We realize that personality issues may sometimes arise, even with very professional and successful agents. Simply call us and inform us, even if you haven't made a final decision about whether you should work with the agent or not. We can recommend another agent and we will work with you until you are happy with the agent you are working with.
We will send periodic
requests by mail, e-mail
or occasionally a phone call. Please take a minute or two to respond to these
requests and keep us updated on your progress.
3. One more thing! Please tell you friends about us!
Our network of over 500 quality agents are located all over the country! If you
have a friend or acquaintance who is moving, would you pass our name along to
them? You can also request
that we contact them to explain our services. We appreciate your
recommendations! A referral is one of the best compliment we can receive.
