Courtsey of the MLS, franchises and brokerages.

Be aware, the dark side (zillow) has established that correct information is irrelevant, but extortion does have benefits.

Hint, both Trulia and Z publish agents sales information suggesting it as a rating.

I suspect that most of these sites eventually rank based on the agent who pays them the most.

Easy for a hack agent to cook these figures.

They must have a way just like Z and T did in the beginning. I wouldn't trust the information just as information from other third party property sites can't be trusted.

Bob Haywood I remember Redfin trying to do something similar. IncredibleAgents.com also give some points for your activities (however, you have to add listings etc in your account.)

I believe on Zillow and Trulia (And now one of the branches of Move.com/Realtor.com - RealSatisfied) get this information from MLS and agents.

Like you, even I wonder how would HomeLight.com get this information?

Good question.  Title companies?  Boards?

Their commercials are cringeworthy. There's no way they can reliably rank Realtors. Too many variables and hyperlocal nuances.

I have not heard of this and can only think that they are trying to sell leads.

Bob - I recently heard of Homelight.com, and am also checking them out just to see what they are offering. I'm not sure how they obtain our sales info.
