I was excited to get the call notifying me that I had received “Best in Client Satisfaction” through Seattle Magazine’s Five Star Real Estate Agent award for 2011. It really is thanks to you, my past clients, for actually providing the information and reviews to allow them to consider me. I think with Thanksgiving this week – this is an appropriate time to say thank you!
What is a Five Star Real Estate Agent award?
Five Star Professional partnered with Seattle Magazine to determine the real estate agents in the Seattle area who provide exceptional service and overall satisfaction. The Five Star Professional research team contacted clients, peers and industry experts and rated individual agents according to criteria such as integrity, communication and customer service. The survey data was collected and scored, resulting in the list of 2011 Seattle Five Star Real Estate Agents.
- The final list of 2011 Seattle Five Star Real Estate Agents is a select group, representing less than 6% of real estate agents in the area.
- The 2011 Five Star Real Estate Agents do not pay a fee to be included in the research or final list.
- Each real estate agent is screened against state governing bodies to verify that licenses are current and no disciplinary actions are pending. The list is reviewed by a panel of industry experts before it is finalized. Safeguards are built into the review process to reduce the ability to influence the final list on the basis of company affiliation.
- The research process incorporates a statistically valid sample in order to identify the real estate agents in the local market who score highest in overall satisfaction. Real estate agents are not included on the list unless their score is statistically valid.
