Frequently Asked Questions

What is AgentMachine? is an online marketplace that connects you, the home consumer, to top local real estate professionals that match your needs.

You say that you have a network of Top Real Estate agents across the country. What do you mean by "our network"?

Our network includes independent Real Estate agents from the top agencies and boutiques who are area experts. These agents do not work for us, nor do they pay to belong to our network. They are simply the best in their area.

Why do the agents in your network work with you?

Top Agents have earned their reputation and know that their professional standards are fully supported and protected with AgentMachine. We have a team of research and service professionals who thoroughly analyze requests from buyers and sellers. When requests arrive, we screen, match, and closely monitor the activity between agent and customer until the transaction succeeds. Top Agents come to us because we offer a screening process and the ongoing assistance that builds customers' confidence and even provides additional moral support during the entire process.

What do you mean by area experts?

Our agents know your neighborhood inside and out. They provide the history and context that enable you to make good decisions. They know the educational, social, and economic issues that are relevant to your transaction. They have the data and the judgment to set the right price of your home.

Why should I use AgentMachine versus another company?

We do all the work for you. Our skilled researchers identify and handpick the best agents in every neighborhood in the United States. Our researchers constantly refine and update our network. Like our agents know their neighborhoods, we know industry resources inside and out. We know what to look for in terms of agent performance. We know how to get beyond the marketing fluff and bring home the real facts.

Does your service cost anything?

You never pay anything to AgentMachine. AgentMachine is a no-cost and no-obligation service. Selected agents rely on us for high-return referrals. When they complete a successful transaction (that means your transaction), they pay us a marketing fee. This process allows us to offer our services to you for free and without obligation.

How do I use AgentMachine?

The first step is to submit your request via our 60 seconds online form. In the form fields, you specify the transaction type (buying or selling), your area, and price range. After our assessment is complete, we send three agent matches, which you can view online.

Which is the best way to work with my agents? Do they like to work online, on the phone, or in person?

You choose. Once we match you, you design the relationship with your agent; whatever suits and supports your personal preferences. Whichever method, all of the matched agents will provide industry-leading advice on buying or selling a home. If you want to list your home, you can follow this step-by-step process: 1) Select the agents whom you want to evaluate from our recommended matches; 2) Set up a listing appointment with one or more of our Top Agents; 3) Meet with agents in your home (the listing appointment) and receive the agents' property evaluation and guidance on different pricing strategies; and finally 4) Select the agent that best fits your style. Most of our agents will be more than happy to schedule a listing appointment.

What if I don’t like the three agents that you select for me?

Every agent that we select for you is of the highest caliber, but we pride ourselves on finding the right fit. If we need to refine your matches, we will. We will work with you until you are completely satisfied. Send us an email or call us and we'll start from there.

Will my information be given or sold to a third party?

AgentMachine takes the privacy and security of personal data very seriously. We will not share your information with anyone other than your prospective agents. For more information, please review our Privacy Policy.

How do I compare REALTORS® online?

We provide you with the profiles and proposals of the exact Real Estate agents that you should consider. While each Real Estate agent is extremely qualified, you should pay attention to information like: exact neighborhood expertise, similarity of vision, and personality fit.

Does AgentMachine have a real estate broker license?

AgentMachine is a licensed broker in the state of California able to accept referral fees in all fifty states. CA License #01426453, Tax ID #20-0776645.

If I'm still confused, can I talk to a real person?

Yes. We have a team of account executives who will walk you through the whole process from opening your account to reviewing your agents' proposals. Account executives are available Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time at (888) 695-1400.
