Endre Barath, Jr. offered great advice.

You don't propose marriage on a first date, build some relationships and over time you'll earn referrals.

Hi James, with all due respect this is not the place to solicit referrals. I would suggest you write a post about how you work with relocating clients, what sets up apart, and why agents outside your area should refer to you.

Welcome James.  Best way to get referrals is to be an active participant.  I have two that have come from being active here.  Never once solicited for them.

James,

Welcome to the rain.

I do a lot of business with DOD industry workers. I see a good bi-directional opportunity.

However, your profile is a bit thin. I would suggest you identify who your ideals client is, understand their insecurities and fear, and write a bio to that preferred client. Then we will both know and confidence in referring will me much greater.
