Absolutely not!

It's a huge liability and for me, I prefer the additional touch with the clients as well as giving them the vendor that most suitably fits their needs.

I do not. I’ve taken a long time to build those relations, and I don’t want just anyone to jeopardize those relations. Additionally, if my clients need something, I want them to contact me so I can help and be able to follow-up with them

Jane,

Years ago, it was "the" thing to do.  One of our clients literally put the phone book on her site.  Now, we advise our clients not to do that.  Sometimes a particular referral may be good for one person and not for another.  Then in this crazy world, liability is an issue...In our commercial real estate practice, we had 3 solid people to refer.  Our clients made the choice...

No... it's kinda old school. They can call me for a referral, another point of contact for a 'what's happening'. Then they get my 'customized' advice...

Besides, vendors would have to pay me to advertise them...

I don't and it's not because of other agents calling. It's a job to keep the list current and I make recommendations to other vendors based on what I know is probably best for specific clients. And I like to be able to call a vendor and alert them that I've sent them a referral, who it is, and why. Besides, I want people to reach out to me to ask for a vendor referral.

I do.

However, there is a gatekeeper.

That means, 'Give me detailed contact information if you want to use my stuff.' And don't you think it just might have double opt-in protocol.

Here in Pinellas and Hillsborough County Florida, the local governments have basically OUTLAWED the status of 'handyman.'  Some jobs don't require a contractor.  Home owners have been receptive to solutions to this money motivated over-reach of local governments.
