When you work with Redfin, you get great customer service while working with some of the most successful and active agents in the region.

Most agents spend around 80% of their time finding new clients, but Redfin agents don’t need to prospect since folks come to us on Redfin.com. As a result, Redfin agents can spend all their time serving clients: answering questions, hosting home tours, writing and negotiating offers, and listing homes. Redfin agents are experts in today’s market because they spend more of their time in the market.

    Hi Lisa,

    Congratulations on the great numbers. I’m curious, where do you get this data?

  • http://blog.redfin.com/blog/author/lisa.taylor Lisa Taylor

    Hi Marc,

    We get this data directly from the NWMLS, the local service that King & Snohomish county agents use to list homes and record sales.

    I just called the NWMLS to ask if I could the list and the lady I spoke to told me they do not calculate any such individual numbers. Was she mistaken?

  • http://blog.redfin.com/blog/author/lisa.taylor Lisa Taylor

    The NWMLS doesn’t actually calculate these numbers themselves. We get the data directly from them because Redfin is a brokerage and member of NWMLS. Our data engineer did a query for January, February and March of all the agents that did at least one deal on the buy side of the transaction. Then, we dump it into Excel and sort based on total number of deals completed and then by total $ amount. Feel free to shoot me an email (lisa@redfin.com) if you’d like to discuss more.

    Thanks!
