Do Clients Care if Sacramento Realtors Rank on Best Of Agents List?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

I guess the Real Trends 1000 list of Best Real Estate Agents in America came out last month but they did not notify me, and probably no wonder since I rarely have anything nice to say about them because there are drawbacks and pitfalls to being named to this list.

They don't put together this list out of the goodness of their hearts or because they believe the public has a right or deserves to know this information. It's a bit of  a racket. There is no reason to publish such a list except to make a profit from it, and most people see no problem with corporate profit, even at their own expense.

It was through my company that I found out my name is on the list. Rank #7 and #8 in Sacramento for number of units and sales volume. I think that's also what Trendgraphix shows but it's under my name and not my team. For some reason, Real Trends put it all under my team, what the hey, though.

Real Trends is a little cryptic about the accuracy of the information and how it is compliled, but I am not surprised that my production qualified. I'm generally ranking in the top 10 agents in the Sacramento Region, but it's no big deal, really, especially when consumers don't seem to care. You can read more in my personal blog today about my recent clients, Real Trends and its collaboration with WSJ, Trulia and Zillow List Best Real Estate Agents in America.

Yes and NO,

pits about the relationship and in today's world the look you up before you go out. They want to know you.  They feel this is one of the best ways

I think they look at referrals more. Folks are leery of LISTS put out by PEOPLE, as we know, everyone has an agenda. Even cousin Guido , he says i have to use cousin Parmesan to list my home or there will be an accidental fire. (please no hate mail from race related folks, i am Irish , we invented the Molotov cocktail ) lol

Ken 360.609.0226 Portland OR & Vancouver WA Real Estate Broker I've yet to connect with a person who said they chose me simply because I have a high ranking in Sacramento.

Kim Stuart Perhaps I suffer from Groucho Marx syndrome in that I'm not sure I want membership in a group that would take me.

MIKE ROCK I think in addition to referrals, people pay attention to reviews, especially independently reviews vetted through a third-party vendor. Also, according to Wikipedia, the Finnish invented the Molotov cocktail, just sayin' . . .

I would think that the public would be very impressed with you being at the top of this list.  Now, it's up to you to make sure they know about it.

James Dray Yes, there are agents in Sacramento who sell more than I do but this is not really a contest is it?

Conrad Allen Yeah, I hear ya, you're only as good as your last year's production. Fortunately, I have not fallen off the cliff but it could happen.

Gabe Sanders In some ways, disclosing to clients that you rank in the top 10 agents can backfire if they wrongly believe then that you are too busy to help them. I've often had to assure clients that they will continue to receive my insanely personalized approach.

It only takes one costly transaction with an agent who is willing to work for peanuts to understand the value in a true professional in the industry.  In Sacramento, buyers and sellers would be foolish to think that everyone offers the same thing as Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents
