Top Real Estate Agents

Find the best real estate agent for you.

What makes a top agent?

The top agents in a city serve the most clients, earn the most awards, close the highest number of deals, and get consistently positive feedback.

Sorting through hundreds of candidates to find those of the highest rank is difficult enough. When considering the best match for your specific situation, the task becomes almost impossible.

So we came up with a solution.

The real estate experts at Clever analyze the performance records of agents year-round. The agents are scored on their years of experience, past sales, customer reviews, and niche specialties. Those agents are then compared to other agents in their city and ranked by their specialty.

We're constantly updating our lists, so if your city isn't included, check back soon.

Why hire a real estate agent

Working with an experienced agent can save you time and money when buying or selling a home. Real estate agents have experience handling real estate transactions and offer guidance on the various stages, decisions, and inevitable roadblocks to their clients.

For home sellers, a great agent will:

  • Determine the right pricing strategy for your home
  • Market and advertise your home
  • Negotiate on your behalf
  • Guide you through the closing process

Plus, homeowners who use an agent routinely receive higher offers, more quickly. Research from Collateral Analytics found that houses listed with an agent sell for 6% more than For Sale by Owner homes.

For home buyers, a great agent will:

  • Help you search for the right home
  • Compose an offer
  • Negotiate the best terms
  • Recommend lenders, inspectors, and contract companies
  • Guide you through the closing process

And, since the home seller traditionally pays the commission of both agents, it costs buyers nothing to get professional assistance with the home buying process. In fact, according to 2019 data from the National Association of Realtors, 89% of home buyers work with a realtor.

Finding the right agent for you

To find the right agent, narrow down the list of real estate agents in your area based on their track record. Then, interview each agent to determine whether they are the right person to represent you in a real estate deal.

Consider the unique challenges that selling your properties will bring. This will help you find the agent that can help you navigate those challenges best.
