Yes they have through me, referring them to an agent in their city we don't have any family where we live. I give them(family) back the referral fee.  Only if they want to go through me.

No, none of our relatives have ever bought or sold through us.  In my situation Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS, I was not a realtor when we lived in the same state as our relatives, though Roger was a realtor.  I do remember them asking him many questions and getting information from him, though they always said they 'had their own friends who were realtors'.
