2013 Five Star Real Estate Agent Program
The Five Star Real Estate Agent Program is designed to identify real estate agents in a given market who satisfy objective criteria that are associated with providing quality services to clients.
Award candidates are identified through nominations received by consumers. To receive the Five Star Real Estate Agent award, a real estate agent must satisfy five objective eligibility and evaluation criteria that are associated with real estate agents who provide quality services to their clients. The award process is conducted annually in each market.
Recent homebuyers (all area residents who purchased a home over $100,000 - $200,000 within an eight to 36-month period, depending on the market size) are asked to evaluate real estate agents with whom they have worked and evaluate them based upon ten criteria. Recent homebuyers may evaluate up to two real estate agents in order to measure the experience associated with the purchase and sale side of a move. Self-nominations are not accepted.
In order to be named a Five Star Real Estate Agent, an individual must hold a current real estate license and be in good standing. The final list of Five Star Real Estate Agents includes less than 7% of the real estate agents in a market.
