Trulia has introduced a new, free feature on its Agent Profiles which enables real estate agents to enhance their online reputations by promoting their previously sold listings. When agents add their transaction history to their Trulia Agent Profile, they provide prospective clients with examples of their local expertise and past experience. Consumers viewing agents on Trulia can now review the types of homes and neighborhoods an agent specializes in–from working with banks on short sales to navigating the negotiation process on luxury homes.
Heather Fernandez, Trulia’s VP of Agent Services said: “Trulia Agent Profiles have become a leading place for agents to build their reputation by adding client recommendations, posting home tours and showcasing previously sold homes. These innovative tools, combined with our audience of more than 31 million transaction-ready consumers, make creating a free Trulia Agent Profile a no-brainer for every agent who is focused on winning new clients and closing more deals.”
Some Benefits of Adding Sold Listings to a Trulia Agent Profile are:
- Users can show potential new clients they are a top agent by promoting their past sale successes
- Agents can boost their ranking in Trulia’s agent directory with every sold listing added to their Agent Profile
- Get permanent, free branding on their sold listing’s public record page on Trulia
Adding sold listings to a Trulia Agent Profile is gratis to all agents when they create a free Trulia account. There is no limit to how many sold listings an agent can add. For every address and transaction date, up to two real estate professionals can claim the sale–as the seller’s agent, buyer’s agent, or both. To ensure transparency and accuracy, the seller’s agent and the buyer’s agent can verify the sales transaction and earn a “verified” badge. Only verified home sales will display a verified badge. However, certain states may prohibit the display of sold listing information.
