Harness the power of verified reviews

RateMyAgent is a digital marketing platform where great agents harness verified reviews to validate, differentiate and grow business.

From the Basic profile which brings all existing and future reviews together to create a comprehensive view, to the Digital Pro subscription that puts the reviews in front of prospects through online ads, listing reports, and unique landing pages that expand that ever-important digital footprint.

Tied directly to the real estate transaction, agents can finally provide transparency and showcase their great service to build trust based on their reputation and relationships.

What are these awards all about?

RateMyAgent understands what a review actually embodies--your hard work, long hours, heart, and soul, all for the sake of serving your clients well. Now, there is finally a way to collectively raise the bar in real estate and celebrate the agents who make our industry better. In the past, awards recognized dollars and numbers, but we want to honor excellence. In the spring of 2018, real estate influencers, innovators and leaders gathered together in Palm Springs to create a manifesto called The Parker Principles on how to change the industry. We believe these ideals are captured in RateMyAgent’s Agent of the Year Awards.

The process is simple. Deliver excellence. Focus on the client experience. Raise the quality of customer service. Your effort, captured in a RateMyAgent verified review, which is tied directly to the transaction for authenticity, is your entry ticket. No fees, no lengthy application process, no nominations. We know your effort should be focused on your clients.

Think we can’t pull it off? Think again. This program, over the last 6 years, has become the Oscars of the real estate industry in RateMyAgent’s native country, Australia. In fact, the 2019 Australian Agent of the Year winner, Josh Tesolin, will help us reveal the winners in America at the Inman Event in late January. And guess what? Our US winner receives an all expense paid trip to Australia to announce the 2022 winner where this all began.

Join us. Claim your free profile and request your verified reviews today. All reviews for consideration need to be received by Midnight Sunday, January 3rd 2021 (PST) for property transactions throughout 2020.
