We just had a terrible experience with a real estate agent in St. Louis and I was wondering if there were any reputable places to rate agents so that others might be armed with more info when selecting an agent. I would hate for anyone to get stuck with this person. I know Angie's List has ratings, but I am no longer a member.

Hi Laura,

As a realtor in Mpls, I can give you this advice. If your agent broke your state's (or the national) regulations on realtor ethics, report them to your state or city board of Realtors.

She didn't break any laws, she was just really unprofessional and difficult, which we never would have guessed when we initially interviewed her. I found outrageousagents.com, but I am not sure how many people even know about that or use it.

I would call the board anyway and describe what actually happened as they might have broken the realtor code of ethics. I looked at that site, and see a few things wrong with it. First being that there are no dates of when the incidents happened, although, the site seems new this year. Second, there is no space for a realtor response, everyone deserves a defense. And last, there is nowhere that a person has to verify that they even did business with the person they are flaming. What's to stop other realtors from flaming their competition? Don't think that one that needs to be outed, wouldn't do it.

Good luck, and, as a realtor, I'm sincerely sorry you had a problem in the first place.

So on the flip side, is there a place to post information on great realtors? I feel really good about the realtor who listed my house in Las Vegas (3 offers on my house in a week!) and the realtor who helped me in St. Charles area.

I'm not aware of any sites to post positives about realtors. I'm not a realtor though. REFER THEM, REFER THEM, REFER THEM. That's the best advice I got.

I'd be careful. Anyone who gets three offers in a week on a non-short, non REPO property in Las Vegas has lowballed it past any good cause. You think that should be rewarded?

I have seen a site to rate Realtors, but I can't remeber what it was right now. Maybe if you Google it. I'm not sure how it works, if you can just add a Realtor you want to rate. I checked it out from my point of view, and they wanted me to pay a fee to let people rate me. I don't know if you feel strongly enough about this to pay to add your bad Realtor to it.

After some looking, I found it-- Rate-My-Agent.com
