NACA works with thousands of real estate agents nationwide. NACA has established an extremely effective program to return home buyers to the real estate agents who refer them to NACA. NACA wants to ensure that your client has the time to become NACA Qualified (i.e. mortgage ready) and then would be in the best position to work with you. Once your client is NACA Qualified they will attend a NACA Purchase Workshop. They will then be referred back to you and ready for the housing search knowing what they can afford and the next steps in the home buying process. NACA does not charge you a fee and does not reduce your real estate commission.
This process is accomplished by referring them to NACA prior to them attending a NACA Workshop. The referral to NACA must be through the website. If the homebuyer has not previously been involved with NACA, they will be referred back to you when they are NACA Qualified. The NACA Qualification means that the Member is mortgage ready and virtually 100% of the Members we submit to the lenders are approved and funded. NACA also provides you with on-line update of your clients as described below.

NACA Referrals to Real Estate Agents
NACA has many qualified (i.e. mortgage ready) buyers. When our in-house agents are not able to handle the large numbers of Members, we refer the Qualified Members to outside real estate agents. There are many agents who want to be a NACA Referral agent. We have a limited number in order to provide them with a consistent number of NACA Qualified Members. We select the Referral Agents based on the quality of services they provide our Members and the number of people they refer to NACA.
To request being a referral agent, the Referral Agent Agreement needs to be completed and emailed to NACA’s Real Estate Department at firstname.lastname@example.org. As per the agreement, NACA receives 35% of the buyer’s or seller’s agent portion of the commission (i.e. not the listing portion) at the loan closing. Questions concerning becoming a Referral Agent or concern with your referrals, call 425-519-6222 or email email@example.com.
