Making Commission by Connecting Sellers and Buyers Off-Market

I have connections with a lot of investors in my area.  I also have connections with a lot of people (qualified young professionals) who are looking to buy their first home.  The problem is that I live in a hot market, and everything is overbid and sold quickly.

My friends would love to get a chance to buy something off-market, or before it hits the market.  And I know flippers would love the same opportunity, as they would have less costs (staging, agent commissions, etc).

Now the question is, if it's a win-win for the buyer and seller, and they want to share some of the cost savings with me, how would I be able to be compensated (preferably at closing)? Or should I just get paid on the side as a "consulting fee" or something?

Note: I am not interested in becoming a real estate agent.
