There are thousands of listing agents to choose from. Discover how we help you find the best of the best.
We’ve established a four-step vetting process that we feel helps us to identify exactly who the top selling agents are that can be trusted. We do this using a combination of our machine learning algorithm and client interviews.
To date, about 1% of all selling agents qualify and are able to become SoldNest Verified.
Here’s how we do it...
Experience is important, so our initial requirement is that the selling agent must rank in the top 10% of total homes sold in their county over the last 3 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.
Does that agent like to also represent the buyer when selling a home? 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 can be trusted and how well they perform compared to other top agents. Many don’t meet our minimum requirements and are eliminated in this step.
At this point, the real estate agent has a proven track record that ranks them best-in-class. But now it’s time to add the human element.
We randomly select homes that agent has sold and ask to interview their past clients. We’re not after the generic online review. We ask questions that have to do with the type of service that real estate agent provided. We’re looking for descriptive answers that leave zero doubt that that agent truly cares.
Roughly half of the top selling agents don’t make it past this step. Either because they don’t want us to interview their clients or because their clients didn’t give us the answers we were looking for.
Before we officially invite the agent onto our platform, we interview them to learn about their expertise and to ensure that the service they provide meets our standards.
We discuss high-level topics such as their marketing strategy, how they help clients get their home ready, their commitment to always making their clients a top priority, and more. At this stage, almost every agent passes with flying colors and becomes SoldNest Verified.
Our service is 100% free, with no catch. Agents cannot pay us to be listed, so you get the best recommendations.
A real estate agent who is SoldNest Verified is an agent who was able to pass the most stringent vetting process that categorizes them as being the most trusted.
Real estate agents who display the online SoldNest Verified badge are on our platform and part of an elite class that rank them in the top 1%.
Nobody contacts you unless you ask them to.
