TAN members regularly network with other elite agents to find houses that match their clients' exact criteria -- even if the home isn’t listed on the MLS. And they’ll leave no stone unturned when searching for your ideal property.
Only agents that are top-performers in their local area get into TAN. They're constantly swapping information about the local housing market with other top agents, which means you will always be "in the know."
TAN members sell 14 times as many properties, based on dollar volume, compared to non-members in their area . That means TAN agents have more experience negotiating and understand how to get you the best possible price on a home.
We were pregnant with twins at the time and were starting to feel the urgency of finding a new house with more space. Our agent, who was a member of Top Agent Network, showed us a home that wasn’t listed on the MLS -- and it was exactly what we were looking for.
Another couple had also put in an offer on the property, but our bid was accepted and we closed right away. Had we not seen that house when we did, the other buyer would have purchased it. And we would have never known about it.

Instead, these 'whisper listings' are quietly shared among elite, local real estate agents -- but are not listed on the MLS.
Why do some sellers avoid marketing to everyone?
They want privacy. A person selling a home following a divorce or due to financial difficulties might not want to make their private issues public knowledge. Celebrities also want more privacy.
They want better-quality showings. And the homeowner knows TAN agents will only bring qualified, motivated buyers to look at their home. That way, they can avoid looky-loos.
They have special circumstances. Ill or elderly sellers often have difficulty staging their home or doing renovations, which means their properties may not be ready for the general market. Also, some sellers require special timeframes or other unique terms.
Only TAN members can access the exclusive Top Agent Network, which is an online community of elite real estate agents who share property listings that aren't yet featured on the MLS.
That means by hiring a TAN agent, you can be confident you've seen absolutely every home that matches your exact criteria.
We will only recommend TAN members to people who are not already working with an agent.
