Fortunately, my company's website allows the agent to list their past sales on their personal profile which is under the company banner. HowardHanna.com

In my training classes, I discuss the benefits of listing past sales.

It was NOT important to me as I had a very set clientele. If I took on a new client I'd just review with them my track record. I always had as much business as I could comfortably handle Joan Cox

I think your past sales speak volumes for your ability to produced results.  You can add them manually to Realtor and Zillow.  I've done that quite a few times when things don't sync properly or when they were done off market.

Most of my sales are on Zillow. They are all on one of my websites. I don't worry about Realtor.com.... don't see any real traffic there.

A little confused about your question since you ask about Realtor.com and mention your website. You should be able to set up something on your website.

By the same token, I've never had a prospective client ask to see a comprehensive list of my sales.

On our new site there is a section where we can do that so I did & I like it.

Ordinarily I've never had a seller ask other than you sell in our area right?

I really don't care what Z does & every time I go in there, it's not correct.

For those who use online sites for reviews, I suppose it's important. Our MLS syndicates and I often receive reminders to confirm a sale. So, it's pretty automatic for us here.

Barbara has a great idea to set yourself apart from other realtors.

It is important for clients to know we do business.  You can input them into Z.  Run a blog on your website and share it to other sites as well.

Unfortunately, it is very important. 
How do I know?  Well you can be sure I don't ask the experts, I ask the citizen. The citizen has NO INTEREST in real estate agent Success Theater.

But, why it is important is not what you think.
