RateMyAgent receives reviews for one in three properties sold across Australia. Around 250,000 unique visitors search Ratemyagent.com.au every month – 200,000 of whom are end consumers (potential buyers and sellers).
In contrast, real estate agents send review requests for one in two properties sold in Australia – which means half the marketplace is missing out on the opportunity to review their real estate agent and provide valuable feedback about their service.
