The factors we consider when evaluating top agents include:

  • Experience: The number of years an agent has worked and the number of transactions they’ve completed in that time
  • Reviews: How consistently and frequently the agent receives positive reviews
  • Results: How frequently an agent’s skill set benefits their clients
  • Specialization: The degree to which an agent works within a specific price range, area, or with buyers, sellers, or investors
