I tried it and have not get a listing or buyer who actually bought or sold. They want you  to cut your fee to nothing plus pay a huge referral. Does not leave much if anything to pay for an agents time to complete a transaction.

Supposedly a computer algorithm will decide who the best agent is and have the agents compete by lowering the commission. 

Realtors are not assembly line products.

Yes I have.  The leads are vaild.  You have to put together a great presentation in order to get selected by the buyer or seller.  However, the rebate to the customers and the split with Upnest is way to costly, especially if you have a Broker's split.

I was recently signing up for different referral companies...Did this one too...Almost immediately got a lead...asking me to respond with "MY BEST RATE"...OMG give me a break. 

I couldnt hit decline fast enough. Zero innterest in competing for sellers whose main requirement is lowest fee. Not my kind of client.

They contacted me a few years ago and since then, whenever I have had a lull in business, I have used them.  I like them because you can cherry pick the leads so if it in a price point or neighborhood you would like to have more business in, you submit a proposal online, if you're selected for an interview, you meet with the prospective client and hopefully get hired.  

I turn down more opportunities than I take simply because most of the time I am busy enough I don't want to work for what the payout would ultimately be.  However, if it is a property I know will go under contract pretty much immediately, then I grab it. 

You pay a referral fee at closing, otherwise, there is no other expense.
