Frequently Asked Questions
Do agents pay to be a part of your network?
No. Unlike other companies out there, agents don't pay us a monthly fee to be a part of our network, nor can they pay for preferential treatment. Our objective and unbiased recommendations are data-driven and based solely on performance.
How can I be sure you'll find me a great real estate agent?
Our network of agents consists of the top 1% of the top 1% of agents nationwide and is based solely on specific performance indicators that we track at Realtyfax. You won't find a better agent in your area because you're going to be set up with the top agent. Having said that, if you have an agent in mind, let us know, and we would be happy to compare your agent against one of ours.
Do I need to use the agent that Realtyfax recommends?
Absolutely not. You're under no obligation to work with any of the real estate agents we recommend. However, we are really good at connecting people with outstanding agents. So, if for any reason, you're not satisfied with the agent we've selected, we will connect you with another top performer in your area.
Why should I use Realtyfax versus finding an agent on my own?
It really comes down to the data. Currently, the type of data we provide to our clients isn’t available to the general public. Because of this, the typical consumer is forced to select agents based on information that is arbitrary to their goals and objectives.
Most consumers choose agents based on how they hope or feel the agent will do. Our clients chose agents based on the data that shows which agents consistently get the best results.
Why should I trust Realtyfax’s recommendations?
Realtyfax uses a proprietary agent-filtering-system based on real estate transaction data, historical performance, sales, and testimonials to identify the perfect real estate agent for you.
When you analyze the data generated by the millions of real estate transactions and agents in the United States, you can identify trends in an agent's performance. These trends can be relied upon and calculated using averages and probabilities. With this data, you can accurately predict an agent's performance and the results you can expect from the transaction before you get started. With our help, you will know how good your agent is before you ever hire them.
I'm a real estate agent. How do I sign up?
Unfortunately, we don’t allow agents to sign up with us. Our referral network is carefully selected based on performance data only. When we identify agents that meet our strict standards, we reach out to them. This approach enhances the quality of our network and ensures our clients only work with the very best.
How is Realtyfax different from Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com?
Unlike many of the other real estate websites out there, Realtyfax does not allow agents to advertise on our site. We value objectivity and transparency in our agent recommendations and keep our suggestions 100% data-driven and based exclusively on past performance.
How do you find the real estate agents that you match people with?
Our recommended agents are the top performers in their area based solely on the performance data we track at Realtyfax. We have personally vetted and researched these agents by analyzing the data in every market to ensure our clients only work with the very best.
Who is Realtyfax?
Realtyfax is a real estate intelligence company and licensed real estate brokerage. We connect home buyers and sellers with local, top-performing real estate agents based on specific performance indicators.
How does Realtyfax make money?
If you decide to work with one of our recommended agents, we receive a customary broker-to-broker referral fee from that agent after the transaction has successfully closed. It's a standard industry practice for agents to pay this type of fee to other brokerages that cooperated in the transaction. Agents are happy to do so because it saves them a lot of time and money finding clients on their own or by advertising on websites like Zillow.
Our service is a win for everyone: Realtyfax is a free service for you but can still provide objective and unbiased information. And best of all, we only make money if we help you achieve your goals. We are incentivized to help you find the perfect agent for your needs who will help you achieve the best outcome for you.
Can I use Realtyfax if I am already working with an agent?
Yes and No. If you are currently under a signed contract with an agent, you would need to be released from the contract or wait until it expires before we can match you with an agent. It would be unethical for us to match you with a top performing agent while under contract with your current agent.
You can, however, fill out the online form and let us know when your contract will expire and we will get you matched on the expiration date. If you are not under any signed agreement with an agent, then we can match you with a top-performing agent in your area right away.
How quickly can I expect a response?
Once we receive your request, we will contact you via phone to verify that your information is correct and get the process started. Once we have verified your information, you will receive your agent match within one business day via email.
How many real estate agents will you match me with?
That depends on how many agents you would like to interview. We will match you with 1 - 3 agents at a time depending on your needs. If for any reason you would like to interview more than three we would be happy to provide you with additional agent matches.
Why does Realtyfax call me to discuss my agent recommendations?
Real estate is a highly personal business, and there's only so much we can get to know about your needs from an online form. We want to ensure you have the best possible experience working with our company and the agent we recommend. Through our client's feedback, we have found that by talking to them about their goals and needs is the best way to ensure we find them the perfect agent.
What's the difference between a top agent and the average real estate agent?
Our performance data shows that our recommended listing agents sell homes faster and for more money than the average real estate agents in a given area. And the top 5% of buyer's agents typically save their clients thousands of dollars on the purchase of a home.
Will my information be shared or sold to a third party?
If I need help or have questions, can I talk with a real person?
Absolutely. Our support team can answer any questions you might have and walk you through the entire process. If you have questions, need help completing the online questionnaire, or reviewing your agent matches. Just let us know. We are with you every step of the way.
