Only a licensed Realtor can be paid a referral fee or commission for any real estate transaction. The State of Florida frowns heavily on someone trying to go around the system.

Yes, as a licensed agent/broker. You are limited to only paying a referal fee to another licensed agent/broker. Some states have limits on what can or can not be paid. Best bet is to log onto your States real Estate comissons web site.
