Frequently Asked Questions

How do you rank real estate agents?

At triple we use proprietary algorithms we developed over years. We consider many data points including, but not limited to: the most up-to-date transaction data, customer reviews, work history.

What makes your site different from other real estate websites?

1. We don’t allow advertising, enabling us to have no conflicts of interest and to operate independently (we are only paid when we match clients and Realtors™). 2. We do original and independent research. In fact we call Realtors™ and customers and gather original insights. 3. We are data driven technologists. We are computer scientists using algorithms and AI to create actionable rankings and insights from our massive proprietary data set.

Can agents pay to be featured?

No. We do our own independent ranking. Our reason for existing is to provide buyers and sellers with the resources to find their best Realtor™ match. In this way everyone wins. Transactions are faster and smoother, customers get better deals, brokers get more business, we gain more referrals.

How often do you update your rankings?

We do an annual overhaul of our top list; however, we are constantly gathering data and evaluating new information. Thus agents are added and removed all year round.
