You do not have any obligation to pay and probably should not, since you already know: it is illegal, read RESPA.

Yet, oddly enough, it is ok to pay thousands of $$$ for leads to companies that obviously do not have a RE license and do not even provide you with solid business opportunities. ... more

You would need to discuss or read your agreement with your broker. Some brokers will not pay you since all listings belong to the broker not the agent. My suggestion is to wait until everything is closed and funded before your transfer.

I hope this makes sense!

It depends on if you want another job. (or hire someone to do this other job)
The recommended program to convert Market Leader internet leads compel you to chase inquires down within 11.6 nano-seconds and hound them until they surrender.

You will need the skills required to convert internet leads.

There are mechanisms you can use with Market Leader that reduces the frenetic nature of this environment.

Or you can simply generate your one leads of home owners who are predisposed to doing business with you. Nothing Market Leader does to create leads on unavailable to you.

YOu will find it more beneficial and time effective to create you own quality leads than to have your business hijacked in chasing internet vapors.

Best of success,

To my knowledge we can not pay a referral fee to past clients.

You can do things like send a basket or give a gift card to a local department store or restaurant.

You can make a donation to a charity in their name.

Referral fees are to be paid to lic real estate professionals, and are paid through escrow. Money does not change hands directly from one agent to another.

Cynthia Fleming answered:
Absolutely, especially now with so many short sales and/or potential short sales. You need to check to see what is owed on the property to be sure. A listing may be active with no 'Special Conditions' but after commission and the agreed upon price could actually end up being a short sale. You need to be prepared for this. ... more
