What’s a Trulia VIP?

Trulia VIPs might be better called our MVV’s;  “Most Valuable Voices.” These agents are our most active professionals around the country who constantly show their area smarts by

  • Answering consumer and community questions,
  • Posting informative blogs consumers and agents find helpful, and
  • Helping keep Trulia’s online Q&A database up-to-date with the most accurate and current local information.

You can see who’s already a Trulia VIP here.
