I am a #1 agent from a #1 agency in my area that values opinions of other professionals. I enjoy the process of being open minded and sharing new ideas and experiences. Trulia has provided us with a great forum to accomplish that.
After reviewing some of your questions I assume that you are a newer agent and would suggest that you perhaps start doing your own research like most all the rest of us have, it stays with you longer so you don't forget it.
Best of luck to you.
