Has anyone had any experience with CARTUS?
I am listing a very nice country home in the $695k range. The male owner is taking a job with G.E. in Texas who is paying to move him to Texas. Out of the blue I received an email with a contract attached informing me that;
"CARTUS Corporation, a licensed Real Estate Broker in the state of Connecticut is referring the above Customer to you (me), a licensed real estate broker/agent in the area of the proposed real estate transaction. In consideration for the placement of the referral by CARTUS and by your signature below you accept this referral and agree to pay CARTUS a referral fee of 40% of the 'Action side' of the gross commission received by your firm."
And if the customer generates another transaction within 18 months of this one I owe another 40%!
"In consideration of for the placement……."?!!! I have known these Sellers for eight years, I represented them in the purchase of this home seven years ago. THEY contacted ME as I knew they would. But I owe a finder's fee to CARTUS?!!
Any experience with these guys?
