This question came in from Karen Alterson a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Surf in Rockville Centre, NY. As it is a pretty common question, I thought I'd answer it on my blog, so multiple people can benefit from the answer.
How do I get my name on the list of Realtors? And how do you get to the top???
First of all, to get on the list, you simply have to create a free profile. All profiles are included in the Directory. To make sure you come up appropriately, make sure you completely fill out the fields like areas you specialize in and your marketing text. In the upper right hand corner, you'll see the Register button.
With regards to sort, helpfulness and contributions to the site are big factors in determining the order.
Each listing and photo you add to the site are considered contributions. Also, in case you don't have listings, answering questions in our advice section are contributions. Also, once you contribute enough advice, you can be considered a Local Expert or All Star. You can sign up to receive emails whenever there is a question in your area to answer.
Hope that helps!
