There are thousands of real estate agents to choose from. Discover how we help you find the best of the best.
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
Here’s how we do it...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 a top-performing listing agent who we consider to have the most trusted reputation. Real estate agents who display the online SoldNest Verified badge are on our platform and part of an elite group that ranks them best-in-class.
Nobody contacts you unless you ask them to.
