The best real estate agents have a few things in common. They are all experienced, receive frequent positive reviews, get their clients consistent results, and usually specialize in an area, price point, or type of client.

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
