I would answer, but they haven't asked. Why not be accurate.

No, I do not.

There are those who believe the can play in the pig pen and not get stink on them. They are wrong.

When one willing facilitates the ability of others to misrepresent and practice overt deception, in a short time they will have justified the same behavior in their business. Choosing to walk with the dark side will darken ones inner spirit and the disease of overt deception and misrepresentation is quieted and not it's OK, because......oh...to keep the record straight, to get more business.

Feel free to identify those in your region who are feeding the dark side and don't allow these misguided agents to escape the truth in the eyes of the consumer.

"So you think she sold 500 homes this year? Unfortunately, that is just the beginning of the deception and misrepresentation. Let me show you."

If we sold it, yes.  Fact is, whether agents like it or not, buyers and sellers look at those sites and we want credit for the work done.

I do report my numbers because the stats are important.  As several others said, with so many people starting their search for an agent there, it just seems foolish not to report my numbers especially since I put my listings there too.

 

I know people dislike Z & T, but if the public is looking there I should be there.  Besides, I look at my personal facebook feed and I see several ads daily for Zillow and NONE for realtor.com  Now, I won't pay them a single cent of money, but Z is where the people are.

I did for a little while, as some classes said - the public is looking there first, so we should have our data out there, and show what we sell.   After our MLS no longer sends listing to Z & T, I always delete them now, and don't care.
