A Toronto-based startup is offering to help buyers and sellers in Ontario choose a real estate agent by furnishing metrics about agents’ prior transactions, including statistics on the number of homes sold, average days on market, average sales price and average listing price.

Commission Pitch says data for each agent can be filtered and sorted by city or neighborhood. Agents can manage Commission Pitch profiles for free or pay a monthly fee for a “Pro” account that connects them directly with buyers and sellers.

Commission Pitch launched in January as a site where consumers could solicit competing offers from agents detailing their commission rates and fees.

“We’re committed to being the go-to source for real estate agent information across Canada, and the primary channel for connecting buyers and sellers with expert local agents,” said company co-founder Chris Silvestre in a statement today. “Buyers and sellers can now complete the entire agent selection process on our site, from browsing detailed statistics to anonymously negotiating offers of representation, with better insight than they can get anywhere else.”

What’s your take on websites that say they can help consumers find agents by providing them with access to information about their past transactions? Leave your comments below.
