Review sites have been the rage, offering consumers and service providers a common ground for feedback and communication on industries ranging from restaurants to hotels to publications. Now real estate agents are on the online frontline with the recently launched RankMyAgent.com where homeowners, prospective buyers, and property sellers can give feedback on the agents they do business with.
Real estate agents say they welcome the site as the comments by clients and other parties will help them improve their game, according to the report filed by Canadian Real Estate Wealth.
Site owner, Riti Verna, who herself is a real estate agent, assures her colleagues that the review system will be fair. She says, "Any flagged reviews require user follow-up to ensure that the user did have an actual transaction and experience working with the agent. This ensures truly factual and unbiased reviews.”
