How SoldNest finds your
best listing agent

There are thousands of real estate agents to choose from. Discover how we help you find the best of the best.

The SoldNest process

We’ve established a four-step process that we feel helps us to identify exactly who the best and most reputable real estate agents are to sell your exact property. We do this by combining real estate agent transaction data with our AI-powered recommendation engine and a no-commitment guarantee.

Here’s how we do it...

How SoldNest finds your best listing agent

Find the top agents

Experience is important, so our initial requirement is that the real estate agent must rank in the top 10% of total homes sold in their county over the last three years. We look up the real estate agent’s license and verify their sales through the MLS.

But verifying a real estate agent’s track record and knowing if they truly have the best intentions is difficult. That’s why the next step is key.

How SoldNest finds experienced listing agents

Analyze their sales

Does that agent like to also represent the buyer when selling a home? Do they have a suspicious number of sales with the same buyer’s agent? How fast do their listings sell? How many times have they sold below the asking price, and by how much? What’s their sale to list price ratio?

These are just some of the key data points we analyze to determine if that agent has a trusted reputation and how well they perform compared to other top agents. Many don’t meet our minimum requirements and are eliminated in this step.

Analyze the transaction history for all listing agents

No contract commitment

Before partnering with an agent and onboarding them onto our platform, we conduct an interview to learn more about their process, marketing, and how they present an agreement to a potential client.

The conversation about the agreement is key because it’s the root cause for many bad experiences with real estate agents. It’s an exclusive agreement that is very difficult to cancel, which favors most agents because it gives them the opportunity to overpromise and underperform while still earning a commission.

Never forcing the contract should someone want to cancel is a strict requirement for us and is spelled out in the agreement each agent signs with SoldNest. Every one of our partner agents is backed by the SoldNest guarantee, ensuring that you’re selling with an agent who is willing to back up their trusted reputation.

No contract commitment

Matched to your property

Now that we know who the best agents are, the final step in our process is matching them to your property. Why? Because working with an agent who has experience selling homes similar to yours is critical.

An agent with a median sale price much higher than your estimated value is an agent who may not give you the attention you need – and an agent with a median sale price much lower than your value is an agent who lacks experience marketing your type of property. Area expertise is equally important. You want an agent who knows your area and has the experience of marketing to those types of buyers. The problem? Verifying these qualifications is nearly impossible.

The Nestimator, our machine-learning algorithm, estimates your potential sale price so that we only recommend agents who have experience selling near your price point and in your area. Qualifying an agent based on the experience you need is no longer a guessing game – our recommendation engine does it all for you.

Match the agent's experience to the home seller's property
