DMV Referral is a “referral only” real estate brokerage. We provide a solution to those agents who are unable to maintain their real estate licenses due to another job, real estate expenses, etc. There is not a 'referral' status with the state, however, agents hold their licenses in an 'active' status but do not engage in real estate transactions. Instead, they submit their referrals to DMV Referral and we connect each client with our exclusive network of top-notch experienced agents throughout the DMV.

Our hand-picked network of knowledgable agents are well prepared to walk with your client from the beginning to the end of the transaction! Once the deal is complete, you will receive 100% of your referral fee. We serve every area throughout the DMV!

DMV Referral was the best decision I made for my real estate career! I have a day job and it is tough trying to balance the two. It also became expensive, paying al these fees and dues when I wasn't actively practicing. I didn't want to have to hang up my license either until a fellow agent told me what a referral agent is. I plan to work full-time in real estate very soon but int he meantime DMV Referral has provided me everything I need to preserve my license.
