International buyers buy like anyone else. It's when they rent or sell that they must pay taxes. If you are licensed as real estate agents in your country, then we can pay you a referral fee. Our real estate laws/rules governing our professional conduct are quite strict.

James, there is so much we don't know about your enterprise.
The nature of your question suggests you have not fully reconciled your infrastructure with the marketing environment and reality around you. This confusion has resulted in answers to a question you did not ask. I understand your question.

Unfortunately, there is not a simple answer. Not a one solutions fits all remedy.
Let's start with:
Exactly what are you SELLING?
What is the quality of what you are SELLING?
Has any vetting occurred that increases the quality of what you are SELLING?
Do you have any real skin invested in what you are SELLING?
What is your confidence in the quality of what you are SELLING?
Will you accept deferred payment on what you are SELLING?

Now, should there be any remaining folks interested in what you are SELLING, the ability to protect your interests are very simple and the process of foreign ownership is a cake walk.
So elaborate more on exactly what you are selling.

James I have my mansion of 6500 sq.ft. for sale in the Dominican Republic. You don't need to be licensed in this country to get your commission.
This mansion is rented now as vacation rentals and generates good ROI.
If interested to show this magnificent property to your investors, just get in touch and I’ll send you all the information. nativosfc@yahoo.com

JAmes in order to get a commission you would need to be licensed in the state they are buying. In order to get a referral fee, you may have to at leats hold a real estate license in at least one state in the USA. Working with a local and licensed firm will protect your interests. You should disclose to them up front what your intentions and referal needs are to see if they will work with you

James,

Yes, working via a legitimate license holding real estate professional with referrals would likely be the correct way to approach this scenario.

at least in Florida, to get a commission or referral fee from a real estate transaction, you must hold an active real estate license.
