I have come to the point in my business that it is time to expand. I miss the influx of new clients that a design build maintain firm brings in. I want no part of the design build portion so I am looking for a design build firm that can feed me clients. I have one company in mind we are not friends, don't know each other, but we have the same clientele. I currently maintain two of his design install clients. He has a small maint division but they are very high priced and not well trained. I know he only maintains a small fraction of the homes he designs and installs. So now the question. Do any of you have this or some variation of this type of relationship? If so how do yo work the return compensation? The way I see it if all I did was give him a good company to refer to that was not a direct competitor it would be to his advantage. I could offer him a small % for all new accounts.
