Islam/Riba in Real Estate


Salaam - I wanted to look into becoming a bird dog for real estate investors, but first wanted to make sure this was a halaal way of making money.  Basically what that entails is finding deals for real estate investors, who pay you if you find them a good deal.  In no way would I be paying, taking or witnessing any riba.  However, the real estate investor may use riba to finance the purchase of a given property if I were to find them a good deal.   Since I myself am not taking part in riba, nor advising them to use riba, I'm unclear about whether or not this would be haram.  Would I be indirectly involved in riba by doing this?  I want to make sure whatever money I am making, I am doing in a halaal way.  Thank you for your time.  Jazakallah Khair.
