New Trulia Find An Agent Directory Helps Home Buyers And Sellers Meet Their Ideal Real Estate Professional

Trulia, Inc. (NYSE: TRLA), a leading online marketplace for home buyers, sellers, renters, and real estate professionals, today launched a new find an agent directory, which connects Trulia’s more than 31 million monthly visitors with the largest agent search directory in the industry. The agent directory makes it easy to search for and find the right real estate agent with at-a-glance results and the option to filter searches based on relevant experience, local expertise, sales history, active listings and client recommendations. For real estate professionals, the new directory provides the opportunity to stand out with a Trulia agent profile that demonstrates their local knowledge and connects them with more consumers.

“Finding a real estate professional is a crucial step in the home search process. Our data shows that more than half of the buyers and sellers searching Trulia aren’t currently working with an agent, but are actively trying to find one,” said Pete Flint, CEO of Trulia. “Trulia’s new agent directory offers people a simple way to research and contact an agent that meets their individual needs, while also providing a powerful way for agents to connect with prospects and grow their businesses.”

The directory offers consumers a straightforward way to research, select and contact agents that meet their specific needs. Home buyers and sellers can gain insight into specific agents based on their previous home sales, active listings and recommendations from past clients as well as see advice they have provided to other people within the Trulia Community.

"When it came to buying our first house we knew we needed an agent. After all, we didn’t know anything about the process or even what issues to look out for when walking through potential homes. We had a difficult time finding the right match, and initially found agents that didn’t have the experience we needed," said Jen, a first-time home buyer in Boston. “With this new agent directory, home buyers like us will be able to find an agent they can trust who has a great track record in their neighborhood."

In addition to the consumer benefit, Trulia is providing agents with a place to easily connect with a large audience of qualified buyers and sellers who are seeking out the guidance of real estate professionals. Agents can improve their ranking and visibility in the directory through a number of factors, such as responding quickly to leads, selling more homes, and securing more listings.

Today, through the recently announced Trulia Accelerate program, RE/MAX, LLC. agents already receive prominent visibility in the directory by automatically enriching their Trulia profiles with robust agent information and company branding.
