If your employer offers you relocation benefits, the relocation company will “assign” a Realtor to work with you. The Realtors who agree to be assigned have taken relocation certification courses and agree to pay your relocation company between 37% to 45% of the commission they earn from either helping you with the purchase of a house or helping you sell your current house.
If you are selling your house, the relocation company will typically have two Realtors from two different real estate brokerages meet with you to present their marketing plans. You will then have an opportunity to choose between the two Realtors.
If you do not like the Realtors assigned by the relocation company because they didn’t listen to your needs or may they are not familiar with your neighborhood, you are not stuck with them. You do have choices!! Just tell your relocation company the name of the Realtor you want to use. The Relocation company will then contact your chosen Realtor to confirm that they are willing to pay a relocation fee. Although Realtors don’t like to pay a 37 to 45% fee to the relocation company (can you blame them?), the majority of Realtors will agree to pay the fee.
You do not have to use the Realtor assigned by your relocation company in order to receive your relocation benefits. You do have a right to choose your Realtor.

I've worked with agents in the past with whom I've been less than impressed, but Jill is top-notch. She is punctual, thorough, and patient. She has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the market, the builders, the school districts, the MUDs, and the neighborhoods. For the sale of our home, Jill took us step by step through the preparations necessary to get our house ready to show: everything from rearrangement of furnishings to referrals for handymen. When we started viewing potential houses to buy, I was amazed that Jill not only knew everything about the house she was showing me, but seemed to know details regarding all the neighboring houses as well. For the closings, Jill was an extra set of eyes, ensuring that the paperwork was in order. She also made sure that the the closing was at a convenient location and took as little time as possible (less than an hour in both instances). All throughout the process, Jill remained a driving force, constantly ensuring that inspection reports were being rendered promptly or that the mortgage provider was keenly aware of the closing date; and I received a steady stream of email updates from her. I couldn't be more pleased with her, and in the event we're once again in the market for another home, she would be my first call. read less
