Are there plans for Trulia to start a Realtor rating system based on customer reviews like Zillow has, but one that actually works?

Hi Sergio,

There's no plan to create an agent rating system on Trulia that I'm aware of, however we'll keep an eye on this post to see if this is something agents generally favor or not. Thank you for posting this question.

Best Wishes,

I love to see if it goes into negative number :)

I don't think it will accurately portrait the agent ability. Most bad feedbacks will show up and most good feedbacks wouldn't.

A really GOOD rating system would be great, but all that I've seen are not GREAT for our customeres. posts their email address (opening it up for spam), so most customeres do not want to do that. Zillow requires them to open an account, again many are not willing to do that.

Therefore, if trulia decides to come up with a rating system, I hope they'll find a way to make this a system that does not require that information to be posted on the sight and will truly be a help to the realtors.

No rating system is full proof. Trulia needs to get it's spam problem under control before venturing out into the world of agent ratings. Why do you feel that Zillow's doesn't work. If functions like Yelp's in that reviews are screened and determined to be accurate or not, to prevent competitors from putting in false reviews. There will never be a perfect rating system.
