Once upon a time, everything worked well on Trulia, but every since they've gone after the Wall Street big bucks, it seems they have completely lost interest in their core business: agents.

So my answer is NO, this does not work anymore on Trulia, neither do so many of their advertising schemes. Once they burn an agent for their hard-earned advertising bucks, those agents will not return.

I don't have the 'Badge" but my activity, and posting my own listings have given me several leads that have resulted in completed sales.

Lets say this.....It does not hurt to have it :)

If you were a consumer and you had to pick from a pool of agents to call, that badge might be the one thing that sets you apart from others.

Think of two exact soldiers standing side by side, one has more metals on his chest then the other. You have no idea what the medals mean, but in your mind you are thinking "wow, he must be a good soldier"

Same concept

It is not a huge booster Bill, but I got it with a coupon from Active Rain for like $60 so I've spent worse money.

The average consumer has no idea what it means. You can prove yourself better by answering questions and blogging useful material. Buyers will look to you as a resource for valuable information over time.

It certainly boosts your profile and most important boosts your listings in the searches.
