We knew a broker or two early on that expected an outside of closing kickback on new listings they would send our way before anyone else. These were for us to buy. I don't go for that. None of the brokers we work with now would accept money in return for work. They are scored on their turnaround times, and that can determine how many listings they receive. If they have to solicit multiple bids and one of the contractor's involved was paying $ to him, it could go from borderline unethical to illegal. That would jeopardize their license minimum.
Yes, cards, emails, being available for emergencies, cookies or pizza to their office would be a much more professional way to draw their attention.
