1 - the agent didn't list his homes on Trulia.
2 - he is a buyer's agent. I don't think buyer's agents show up linked to a property they helped sell.
3 - he may work in a team and the homes are listed under the team leader's name.
In all three scenarios above, the agent could get recommendations from clients and 0 homes sold.
I have no idea, nor do I care. how many homes Trulia may say I have sold. Anyone placing ANY faith in what appears on aggregate real estate websites are not paying much attention anyway.
Wavgroup report revealed 37% of data on Trulia is wrong.
Also reported is 31% of homes listed for sale are not for sale.
Also reported is homes appearing for sale can be 7 days late.
Of course every knows craziness associated with the value estimates.
And the REALTYTRAC $1,000 foreclosures for sale.
All you need to do is peruse the Q&A and read citizens postings. They typically end with various ways of expressing.."My time has been completely wasted!"
What you may not know is agents DO NOT CONSENT to have their IP published on Trulia or the hundreds of other, similar aggregate websites. It is all derived from a false belief there is value to the buyer or seller to be on the sites.There is NO WAY an agent can even atttempt to keep them accurate. Trulia, for instance, DOES NOT receive data from the MLS where REALTORs enter the data. Trulia receives from Listinghub. ListingHub and Trulia change, replace, supress, substitute, delete, modify and misrepresent data as it suites their business purpose. Folks looking for actionalable real estate direction who rely on these websites are truly lifing in a fantacyland. These sites are good for entertainment purposes only.
Expecting anything actionable or reliable from Trulia, Zillow or the host of other aggregate websites is like expecting actionable relationship advise from the Big Bang Theory.
If you are serious about buying or selling, you should not be relying on entertianment websites.

All of the responses you've received are correct. I'm mainly a buyer's agent & so I could have many recommedations from satisfied buyer's, but Trulia wouldn't show that I have any houses sold. Are you thinking of buying out here in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area?
I'm originally from Brooklyn & would love to work with a fellow New Yorker.
You can look for homes on my website - http://www.scottsdalerentalpropertiesaz.com (has the whole MLS, so you can see homes for sale & also homes for rent) or email me directly ay email@example.com
