How to become a Trusted Agent


Stand out online with Agent Recognition Badges on your RateMyAgent profile.



Trust is the crown jewel of real estate agent marketing. Buyers and sellers all want to appoint an agent they can trust to get them the best price and experience but demonstrating that trust has proven to be very difficult in the past.


We have heard it all before, real estate agents are untrustworthy like other salespeople. Numerous polls and surveys tell us this.


But we don’t think the survey results paint a true picture as we know there are many trusted and transparent agents providing exceptional customer experiences, we have already collected over 400,000 positive buyer and seller reviews.


One of the problems that consumers face is the difficulty in finding trusted agents and on the flip side, agents have the problem with demonstrating and effectively promoting that they are trusted agents.


That’s now changed with the launch of our newly released Agent Recognition product feature which aims to help agents build trust with potential clients and differentiate themselves from the competition. The Trusted Agent Badge is one of three badges which agents can earn and it demonstrates that the agent embraces transparency and requests 100% of client reviews for each of their sales. They do not filter their requests and are also open to more critical, constructive feedback.
