Hey real estate agents! Want to make some extra money and help solidify your relationships with clients? Many providers of short-term furnished apartments partner closely and non-competitively with real estate agents and brokers. Furnished Quarters has been doing so for our over 20 years in business. You’ll earn extra commission while helping your clients find temporary housing amid challenging living situations. You’ve probably encountered such situations with clients who are between leases, experiencing closing delays, renovating their home, relocating or just in need of some extra space.

Here are four of the financial and business benefits real estate agents typically receive by collaborating with furnished housing providers like Furnished Quarters.

1. Referral commission

We typically offer a 5% commission to licensed real estate agents for each referral. During slower times of year, extra incentives may be offered.

2. Preferential rates

Depending on the length of stay, Furnished Quarters can offer real estate agents preferential rates to pass along to their clients.

3. Seamless booking

Once you refer a client to us and provide their name and information,  we’ll handle the entire booking process from start to finish, linking it back to you and paying you a referral commission. You can stay closely involved through this process, or let us fulfill your client’s needs so you can focus on helping them buy, sell or rent a more permanent home. If you prefer the latter, we will tour your clients through their desired properties on your behalf. The next time you’ll hear from us will be when you receive a check after your client has successfully booked.

4. Business referrals

As an added thank you to real estate agent partners, we often continue to refer business to them. For example, Furnished Quarters has many clients who have recently relocated, and we can refer these clients to you when they begin looking for a permanent home.

Choosing the right partner

When it comes to selecting the right temporary furnished housing provider to partner with, it’s important to choose one with a great track record. Furnished Quarters has rapidly expanded from its roots in New York real estate to include substantial inventory in New Jersey, Massachusetts, California and beyond. With local relationships, a strict selection process and pricing coordinated through one dedicated team, we offer everything your clients may need when it comes to finding the right short-term apartment solution.
