ReferralExchange – Why Work For Us?

ReferralExchange makes great real estate experiences happen by referring home buyers and sellers who are ready to act to qualified real estate agents who meet our high standards.

AGENT-TO-AGENT REFERRALS is the premier agent-to-agent and broker-to-broker referral network in the real estate industry. We enable agents to create new referral income from leads they choose not to work, and make personal referrals easier.

CONSUMER-DIRECT-REFERRALS is our consumer-direct website that was started with the simple idea that finding the best real estate agent in your area shouldn’t be difficult. By answering a few questions, we can match buyers and sellers with the best local agents who fit their needs.


Our agent network includes over 23,000 top-performing agents covering 100% of the U.S.

Most of our agents have more than 8 years experience, have more than $5 million in sales or have 20 real estate transactions in the last 12 months.


We offer a fun, collaborative workplace, with a team that is dedicated to connecting consumers to the best local real estate agents through a combination of technology and customer support. 

We are very proud to say that we were a finalist for “2016 Best Employer in Sacramento”, have received 5-star reviews on numerous career websites, and have a 93/100 employee engagement score. 

We are an energetic and passionate team of 150 employees working out of 3 offices that welcomes input, values innovation, and gives you a chance to learn and grow.

    I have been working at ReferralExchange full-time (More than a year)


    - Pays for you to get your real estate license
    - Approachable management
    - Comfortable workstations
    - Flexibility with time off
    - The work can be challenging and engaging if you push yourself. You get what you give.
    - Awesome coworkers


    - Having conversations with strangers on the phone can be challenging.
    - Medical coverage options could be better, but they at least give you a stipend if you choose to go through the insurance exchange market thing
    - The people who speak up get seen first, so if you're an introvert, you have to work harder to get recognized

    Advice to Management

    This is a company that is growing, and with that comes change. Change is inherently difficult. People who are not capable of adapting to change have to go, and naturally, they have a lot of feelings about that. Does management make mistakes? Sure. Management at any job will make decisions that you don't agree with. But I also see management trying really hard to make this a fun, rewarding place to work. My advice to them is to keep going.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ReferralExchange (Sacramento, CA) in March 2017.


    I had a 30 minute phone interview. The next day I was contacted and set up for a face to face interview. 2 sales managers conducted the interview that lasted 45 minutes. Average questions, a few harder individualized questions.
