A social network designed to help top-producing agents share information about pre-MLS and non-MLS listings announced today that it will conclude its Boston-area rollout by launching chapters in the North Shore, South Shore and Cape and The Islands on April 29.
Top Agent Network (TAN) aims to enlist the membership of local markets’ elite real estate agents to help them coordinate sales of homes that have not yet hit the market and homes that have not yet been listed on multiple listing services. Members of TAN also use the network for other purposes, like obtaining service-provider recommendations, referrals to agents in other areas and general advice, the company said.
"Sharing pre- and non-MLS real estate information with one another is something that top agents have been doing forever," said Top Agent Network Founder David Faudman. "Unfortunately, this sharing was very haphazard and inefficient. That’s why I created Top Agent Network. As soon as agents become members, they start making connections that lead to more home sales and to happier clients."
TAN has already introduced its platform to 27 local markets, boasting chapters in California, Arizona and Washington, D.C., according to the company.
The company says agents who apply for membership in the network are strictly vetted. TAN says it only accepts those whose MLS-sales records of the previous two years indicate that they are among the top 10 percent of agents in their local markets.
Real estate agents in the Boston area interested in becoming members of TAN may contact Membership Director Suzanne Crawford.
