Trulia is in a sad, sad, state and I am very upset about it because I was their best contributor in my market on Trulia, now I can't even find myself and non-producing, un-knowledgeable newcomers to the field, are coming up as top-rated. And that is helping the public how?????
It's annoying, but eventually they will fix it until another glitch pops up. Your points are still there somewhere in the bowels of trulia, just not visible at this time. They will be restored at some point.
What isn't being fixed, is the new agent ranking system........so you all should take a look at it, as it has been drastically revamped.............I still don't understand what "best match" means...........and we all bid a fond farewell to seeing our best answers and TU's (visibly) counting towards our ranking.
But, the good news is........... if you have the time to sit there and add ALL your solds, say back to 1995 - heck, you, too can be at the top of the list! (nice going trulia for not putting a filter on that " ranking enhancement" that limits how far back one can go - that's why a part time agent I know who posted "11" solds was in the number 1 spot - those were all the homes she ever sold in her vast career dating back to 2002!)
So.......the new credo is.........Pay up, or become invisible...........and even you "PRO'S" out there seem to be getting the short end of the stick............you , too, can only list 3 service areas on your profile.
Welcome to the new and improved "pay to go trulia"........all those sales reps on the phone promising all these fabulous leads. that will come when you subscribe to more and more........
I just hope the consumer will figure it out, too.........
Thanks to all of you for your responses. My points have disappeared today, so I'm not at all happy! I've done some of the suggested reading - "Uh-Oh!" So much for careful listening and "promises" made during a telephone sales pitch. I'll stop my belly-aching now - I've got five more months to go. I just wish I understood - before I signed up - how time consuming this would be.
So now I'm supposed to select a "Best Answer" - right?
The real issue for which your disaapointment will be merited is yet to surface.
If you have spent any time trolling Trulia to assesss the experience other professional have shared, you will find cause to SERIOUSLY evalutate how you willl use Trulia in your business. Opportunity does exist. Too ofent real estate professionals are caught in cages of their own making. The ironic issue is the door to these cages are wide open should one choose to walk through.
To make the most of Trulia, you will need to see the door, and use it to benefit you and your business. Making Trulia serve your purpose is the antidote to that 'sinking' feeling.
Best of success,
