ADRE, APOLOGY, SELF REPORT & SELF CORRECT ISSUES:  Our Accounting department  was notified that a referral was owed to you (Homesmart Agent Kevin McFarlin) on June 20, 2017.  Accounting promptly cut the check and mailed it out on June 21 or 22.  The U.S. Mail is apparently taking longer than it used to, but I would not have expected the check to get there any faster than 5-6 days in any case.
