Top Agent Network, Inc. Launches Three More Boston Chapters to Serve Top 10% of Local Real Estate Agents
Entire rollout to include nine Boston Chapters including Metro West/I-495, Metro South and Boston North/I-93
San Francisco (2/19/2013) – Top Agent Network (TAN), the private online business community for top real estate agents, will launch three more chapters in the Boston area, continuing TAN’s rollout of nine local chapters planned for the region. TAN will follow the successful launch of its Metro Boston, Metro North and Metro West/Route 128 chapters begun in January with its next tier of outlying chapters: Metro West/I-495, Metro South and Boston North/I-93, all launching on Monday, March 25, 2013.
Top Agent Network is the nation’s fastest growing, online networking community for top agents. TAN connects members with all their top 10% local peers—across all brokerages—giving unparalleled ease, transparency and efficiency to the Pre- and Non-MLS networking top agents traditionally have done by phone and word-of-mouth.
“Sharing Pre- and Non-MLS real estate information with one another is something that top agents have been doing forever,” says Top Agent Network Founder and CEO 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.”
Top Agent Network membership is restricted to the top 10 percent producing agents in any local chapter based on past two-year MLS sales. These top agents are typically involved in 3 out of 4 closed home sales in any given market area. Thus these relatively small, targeted communities effectively allow TAN to capture the bulk of real estate activity in each region.
TAN performs strict qualification analyses before inviting an agent to membership. The high degree of trust and professionalism on the network, therefore, allows for the sharing of far more than listing information. Members use TAN to circulate buyer needs, request service provider recommendations, seek out advice on pricing and share in industry discussion. This collaboration of the area’s most esteemed peers also allows all of them to serve their clients better.
Members also use their TAN memberships to promote themselves to clients.
TAN’s expansion into Boston will continue through April, 2013 with the rollout of three more chapters: Boston North Shore, Boston South Shore and Cape & The Islands.
TAN’s Boston presence will bring the company’s total number of chapters to 27. After its formation in the San Francisco Bay area, TAN has attracted an enthusiastic member following in chapters spanning California, in Scottsdale, Arizona, and throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The company plans continued aggressive national expansion in 2013 and beyond.
