Terms of Use

NOTE: We are not in the business of direct real estate sales.

I. Introduction

These Terms govern your relationship with Kealink.com (Kealink). The Agreement spells out what you can expect from us, and what we expect from you. It includes and incorporates the other policies set forth on the website and/or Applications, such as the Privacy Policy. We do not know each User, so it is important to set out the ground rules clearly in advance.

If you agree to this document, welcome to our system!

If you have questions about any part of this Agreement please contact us! We will be glad to explain why these provisions are important for our system. We would like to work with you on making changes if you can show us a better approach. You must be 18 years of age or older to use this site.

Please remember that until this Agreement is accepted and in place, you will not receive full access to our system.

In this agreement, we have referred to the Kealink service as the “Service”, to you as the “User” and to this contract as the “Agreement”.

II. Relationship Between Kealink And User: Providing Only a Platform

Kealink is an Internet Platform that facilitates communication between Users which are real estate professionals and buyers or sellers of real estate. Kealink acts as matching service for buyers and sellers of real property with leading real estate professionals to exchange information with the goal of eventually forming a professional relationship. We do not perform real estate brokerage services other than referrals. Kealink does not guarantee that Users will successfully find representation through this system. You are responsible for the accuracy of your information you provide, and updating that information as required.

In order to provide an optimal platform for buyers, sellers and real estate professionals, Kealink does not involve itself in any real estate agreements between those parties. Kealink does not represent buyers, sellers or real estate professionals. Therefore, we cannot ensure the completion of the agreement or the integrity of either party. The User, and not Kealink, is solely responsible for assessing the integrity, honesty, and trustworthiness of all persons with whom the User communicates through our Service.

We are not your representative or broker (we will be a referral exchange service for buyers and sellers). Kealink does screen its Users, however Kealink disclaims any warranty regarding the same to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Providing a service where potential clients and real estate professionals can meet does not imply an endorsement of any buyer, seller or real estate professional. Kealink makes no representation concerning a buyer, seller or real estate professional’s qualifications, nor does it sanction statements posted by them on the system.

Kealink makes no representation, guarantee, or warranty (express or implied) as to the ability, competence, or quality of representation which may be provided by any of the real estate professionals which may be matched to you and/or are listed through this Web site or any affiliate thereof.

You are responsible for you own choices and may refuse any relationship based on you own judgment.

Should you match, Kealink receives a standard industry referral fee of approximately 25% of the Buyer Agent Commission (BAC), or Listing Agent Commission (LAC), unless otherwise stated in the Kealink Referral Agreement with agent, for any subsequent sale entered when a Buyer or Seller uses an agent they selected through the site within two years of the referral date. Gross commission is calculated as that received by the Agent’s broker prior to any split of commission with Agent or any other brokers on the Agent side of the transaction. If an Agent represents Buyer and Seller on the same transaction the fee will be 35% of ½ the total gross commission of the transaction. The Agent will have the referral fee paid from escrow or by the employing brokerage as the result of a closed transaction within ten calendar days. If you are a buyer or a seller you agree this is reasonable, as is any other share that does not impact the total price you pay. If you are a real estate agent or broker, you agree to the referral terms in the same fashion as if done in person or any other method. As the Agent or Broker, you agree to any additional terms set forth in each individual contract pertaining to the signed referral agreement.

The User may initiate or receive a call from a Kealink representative. If you do so, Kealink may create a digital audio recording of the call. You acknowledge and agree that your phone call may be recorded for quality assurance purposes. You agree to receive communication electronically through email and/or text messaging (SMS), and consent for us to contact you via telephone or cellular device even if it is currently listed on any local, state or federal Do-Not-Call list, and even if your carrier charges you for the call or text.

III. User Guidelines

Some of these rules are described in this contract, and the rest in bulletins posted at various points in the system.

Kealink does not continuously review the standing of any real estate professional. When considering employing any real estate professional, Users should check their standing with their local regulating authority.

Kealink makes every effort to verify that brokers and agents are licensed as they indicate, However, Kealink is unable to track, verify, or monitor the standing/license of each broker or agent using the Service.
