Your experience compared to what Tom has reported presents a real study in contrasts.
Both you and Tom have the scantest Trulia profiles possible.
Tom has responded to 23 questions, you have responded to very few.
Your personal details are about you, but apparently not written by you, while Tom;s is non-existent.
Tom's 'specialty' is broad based while your specialty is targeting luxury living.
Tom's purchased a percentage 20% which I believe is the minimum, and your percentage is unknown and may be irrelevant.
Since you are both in NY, NY that is a great common denominator. I would suggest making your presence more like Tom's.
I am surprised Tom has experienced the success he has reported.
That what's so great about real estate, just when you think you know something a 'Tom' comes along.
Best of success to you both.
