October 2, 2012 in About Edy and the Team, Seattle Buyer's Guide

Wow, thank you, past clients!  When I heard that I got this designation, I first wondered how it was determined.  I found out that it is through interviewing home buyers in the last year.  At most the top 7% of agents responding homebuyers mentioned and rated get the designation.  Here is how it’s determined:

How Was I Selected?  here is the answer from Seattle Magazine:

Our research team contacted consumers in the Seattle area and asked if they had experience working with a real estate agent. Consumers who agreed to participate in the survey provided the name of the real estate agent and rated that individual according to key criteria such as integrity, negotiation and closing preparation.

Surveys were sent to Seattle area residents who recently purchased a home over $150,000 (more than 29,045 households) within an 8-month period (May 2011 to January 2012).

The survey data was collected and scored, resulting in the list of 2012 Seattle Five Star Real Estate Agents. The research methodology allows only 7% or fewer real estate agents in a given market to qualify for the Five Star award.

Five Star Professional follows standard sampling and survey practices used by other professional research organizations. Our research also includes a regulatory review to provide necessary checks and balances.
