Brownstoner's creator offers real estate broker-rating site

New site features users' numerical ratings, comments

The man behind Brooklyn’s Brownstoner real estate blog has created a new Web site that allows visitors to rate real estate brokers in the five boroughs of New York City., which launched Friday, allows visitors to assign a score of one (poor) to five (great) in each of three categories: knowledge, courtesy and effectiveness.

Brownstoner’s founder, who is secretive about his identity and chooses to remain anonymous, said Monday that there are about 110 brokers who are rated at the site.
