I agree with Ron and Dave. Faster and more is not better. Some companies have several people in a team, that crank out a dozen sales a month. It does not necessarily mean better service.
Sometimes owners want to try a slightly higher price (against an agent's advice) and the listing takes longer to sell. Or, they just don't have the equity to sell at a lower price, but the agent tries to work with them.
Days on the market is not the best indicator of good service. I have a few methods for screening agents that I can recommend, but the easiest is to find any agent that has had a sale in the last 4-6 months in your area, then ask that agent for the phone number of their last few sellers. That should tell you what you need to know.
