Like Stephanie said, TREC frowns on this issue and sees it as a commission paid to an unlicensed person. But, are YOU an agent. I remember speaking with you at BOBBE and from what I recall, you used to be (or maybe currently are) a real estate investor and didn't have a license. I could be wrong, but thats what I remember. Anyhow, if you are not an agent, then you are not bound by this restriction. Of course, don't take my advice because I don't know what I'm talking about. Its best to consult a real estate attorney.
Good luck and happy investing!!
