inparadise: "When an agent refers a client to another agent, they get a negotiated fee. In the agency I worked in, it was typically 25% of the commission the referral agent would get. This may vary based on state regs and agency practices.

having collected that fee more than once, but for referring my sellers to an agent in the area they wished to purchase and in which I was not licensed"

If you were not licensed in that area, is that not an unauthorized fee split?
