Top Rated Agents of 2018 Announced by Rate-My-Agent.com
The top real estate agents for 2018 have been announced by Rate-My-Agent.com. The review site compiled and published a list of the top agents for 49 Canadian cities based on ratings and reviews received during the past year.
Unlike other agent ranking sites, agents can’t pay to have negative reviews removed or hidden and cannot pay to be included on the list of top-rated agents. The company says the reviews are verified through a process they wouldn’t disclose in order to protect the integrity of the process. When asked if they’ve had agents try to cheat, a spokesperson confirmed, “Yes, there have been many attempts by agents to game the system and rankings, which is why we keep our algorithms a closely held secret.”
The list will be published annually based on that year’s verified reviews.
Agents with top rankings on the rating site report getting a lot of qualified clients from it. One REALTOR team estimated 30% of their yearly business came from Rate-My-Agent.com once they achieved a top 3 ranking.
Rate-My-Agent.com is a rating and review website for Canadian and American markets. It’s free for the general public and real estate professionals. The company pledges 50% of profit to worthy causes.
