SRE may make one or more of the SRE Services available to You without requiring payment of a Service Fee until the start date of any Premium Service ordered by You. Additional terms and conditions may appear on the registration web page. Any such additional terms and conditions are incorporated into this Agreement by reference and are legally binding.
Premium Members will have access to Leads based on their availability at SRE’s discretion. SRE does not promise that a Lead will result in a real estate transaction.
You recognize Your Service may not be complete or entirely functional and may contain bugs, mistakes, omissions, and other issues. SRE may terminate or immediately stop Your Service at any time for any reason without any liability.
Referral Fees. All Members (including Premium Members) agree to pay SRE 30% of the GROSS commissions earned from each real estate transaction consummated with a Lead within the Prescribed Period in exchange for receiving Leads from SRE and the DREAM HOME REWARDS site. This payment is due upon closing escrow (if used in Member’s transaction), upon recording the deed or other evidence of transfer, or upon otherwise concluding the transaction associated with the lead. In addition SRE will donate on the agents behalf and to the agents clients and their charity of choice or 501(c)(3) non-profit organization charity, 83.343% of that referral to their client as a donation or 25% of the total agent commission. The remaining amount will stay with SRE.
In the hypothetical scenario where SRE supplies a Member with a Lead and the Member gets 2.5% commission on a $1,000,000.00 contract either directly or through an agent or broker, SRE’s Referral Fee would be equal to 30% of the GROSS $25,000.00, or $7,500.00 and broken-down as follows: 25% = $6,250 5% = $1,250 totals = $7,500

A first Referral Fee will be owed to SRE based on that first transaction per Section 4.4 in the following scenario: On January 1, 2016, SRE provides Member with a lead or Prospective Client. If Member, personally or through its Agent or Broker, earns commission on the purchase of Property X from the Prospective Client as a result of the first transaction, the first Referral Fee will be owed to SRE.
