A Unique Service for Luxury Home Buyers and Sellers

We are real estate consultants, with proven expertise in referring you to the best local broker in top luxury destinations. Whether you are buying or selling, we understand the demands on your time and your desire for a smooth and efficient transaction resulting in the best price.

Top brokers can help achieve all this. The difficulty comes in choosing the top broker who is right for you.

Let us manage the all-important interview process on your behalf. We have 30 years of real estate experience and connections. We know the tough questions to ask. We have developed a due diligence interview process with brokers to benefit you, our client. This free service is tailored to your needs, not the needs of a network or company.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you.

Simply call us at 1 (800) 780 6357 or register here.



Register with Elite Referral and let us locate the top broker in the luxury destination where you wish to purchase or sell. We match your real estate needs with a proven professional.

Buying a Luxury Home

Elite Referral offers a custom-designed service to find the top broker for you—not the best broker in any given company and not the best in any luxury network. The best broker. Period.

We are completely independent and not associated with any other real estate organization. What that means is we work for you and you alone to refer the most qualified agent to find your next home.

How do we do this?

We have developed a rigorous due diligence process. We first discuss your real estate objectives. We then conduct independent research on the market’s top producers, also relying on our vast connections, to narrow the search to a handful of candidates. We interview each and present our professional recommendations to you.

Call us at 1 (800) 780-6357 or complete our simple form.

Once you have registered, we will contact you immediately to start the broker referral process. Read testimonials from past clients and a letter from Elite Referral's President, Paul McDonald. Or read testimonials from past clients and a letter from Elite Referral’s President, Paul McDonald.


Selling your property isn’t necessarily a transaction; it’s a transition.

Your home is infused with memories and life’s precious moments. As you embrace the excitement of finding a new home, it is natural for the selling process to include a twinge of nostalgia.

We understand the emotions involved in transitioning from one home to another. We can refer you to the expert in your market with proven experience in selling properties similar to yours, making the process as seamless as possible.

Allow us to interview the top local candidates on your behalf. We know the questions to ask. We know the value of a strategic and effective marketing campaign. We know you want to minimize days on the market and move forward with your future.

Letter From Paul

Real Estate Connections Since 1984

“I founded Elite Referral to help buyers and sellers find the best brokers in America. Having watched brokers for my 30 years in real estate refer other brokers based solely on their own network, I realized there is a need to approach referrals differently. Rather than service a network, I feel referrals should service you, the client. By painstakingly researching each market, we know who the top brokers are and we know how to match you as a buyer and seller with the appropriate broker based solely on your needs. The result is more professional service and better results.

Searching the Internet for real estate is fun. Having a great real estate broker in your corner as a trusted advisor is invaluable. Most people do not have the resources to search through the hundreds of thousands of brokers in the United States to identify the very best in the profession. In most instances, we have done the homework for you – and we are happy to initiate a custom search for you – all free of charge to you.

With hundreds of millions in sales in my residential real estate career, and having worked for the two largest real estate companies in America (NRT – parent company of Sotheby’s, Coldwell Banker etc. and HomeServices of America – Berkshire Hathaway Company), I have been privileged to collaborate with many of the top brokers and organizations in America. I’ve included testimonials from a few of the buyers and sellers I have represented over the years. My pledge to you is simple – I will only refer you to thoroughly researched brokers who specialize in the type of real estate you are interested in buying or selling. I look forward to working with you!”

“What made Paul so valuable as a Realtor, is his knowledge of our particular taste and his handling of a unique problem we presented with my record collection. We also appreciated his comprehensive knowledge of neighborhoods, his graceful manner of negotiating, and his availability. If I need real estate in the future, I hope Paul is around to provide it.”

Joe ForehandJoe Forehand, Former CEO & Chairman Accenture
“I want to thank you for all the time and attention you gave us…..Your knowledge of all the properties and objective assessment of them was immensely valuable in helping us choose our property. The amount of extra time you spent with us answering our many questions about the new community made you feel more like a “neighbor” than someone trying to “sell” us.”

Norm WaittNorm Waitt, Co-Founder Gateway Computer
“Paul McDonald has done a great job of helping our company through a number of real estate listings. I consider Paul to be one of the best real estate agents that I have worked with in the past. Paul is hardworking and seeks every opportunity to sell the real estate he has listed. I found him to be both reliable and trustworthy. We would highly recommend Paul to anyone as a potential real estate agent for listing of their property or as a purchasing agent”

“I can tell you from 35 years of experience in the residential resort development business that the magnitude of positive synergism that you helped create does not happen very often…when it comes to professionalism in our field, I would put your team up against any in the country.”

John RollwagenJohn Rollwagen, Former CEO of Cray Supercomputers

“Based on personal experience, if you are looking for professional assistance in a high level real estate transaction, you can do no better than Paul McDonald. My wife and I have both sold and purchased residential property through Paul several times. The results have been excellent. Paul consistently dedicates himself to a project with high energy and full commitment. Paul is a complete professional who offers sound advice and at the same time is prepared to do whatever is appropriate to complete a transaction quickly and to everyone’s satisfaction. He never says it can’t be done. Paul quickly establishes a level of trust with both the buyer and seller….. I can recommend Paul to you without reservation.”

“I am writing this on behalf of Paul McDonald….. What made Paul so valuable, as a Realtor, was his respect for our wishes, his comprehensive knowledge of neighborhoods, his graceful manner of negotiating, and his unstinting availability. Besides that, he’s an interesting man, by which I mean he can talk to a non-businessman like myself about topics other than business. If I need real estate help in the future, I hope Paul is around to provide it.”

Mike and Linda BeaverMike and Linda Beaver, Owners of Beaver Toyota, Santa Fe, NM

” We just wanted to take a moment and express our sincere thanks to you for your fine efforts in helping us purchase our new home. We have had the opportunity to own several homes over the past years, but we cannot remember having been treated with so much selfless assistance as we were with you. As you know, we too are in the business of selling. It is always refreshing to meet someone in our line of work that thinks about the customer before they think about money.”

Tylee WilsonTylee Wilson, Former CEO of RJ Reynolds

“For over four years, Mr. Paul McDonald represented us in the listing and sale of two properties. Paul is exceptionally knowledgeable, a keen strategist, and a very good communicator! He brought our project to a successful conclusion in a very different market for sellers!”
