Do I need a real estate license for this?

Asked over 1 year ago - Paxton, IL

My question is do I need a real estate license for connecting to parties. So selling contact information. For example - I see that someone is looking for a home to rent. I know someone who is renting out their home. I approach the potential buyer and explain that I know of a property that is exactly what they are looking for. I can connect them with the seller for a small fee. Since the fee is not dependent on the sale of the house I wouldn't need a license right? Also what exactly does a real estate consultant do?
