    Independent Verification and Trusted Results

    Independent real estate companies and national corporations in 24 states participate in the QE assessment. Eligibility for the 2019 QE Award requires a minimum number of surveys sent and returned, adjusted from year-to-year based upon market conditions and the number of participants. Last year, more than 30,000 real estate agents and 750 companies elected to participate.

    The QE Award is based on the aggregated results of an independent survey given to buyers and sellers who closed a real estate transaction with a participating business. Since scores are based on a percentage of results, they are weighted equally, so the customer service of businesses of all sizes and types are assessed fairly. Quality Service Certification, Inc. (QSC) and Leading Research Corporation administer the survey process to ensure that every past customer is surveyed and no company or agents can influence the results. 

    “Today consumers are seek transparency, accountability, and trusted information to help them make better, more informed decisions and choices,” said Kevin C. Romito, President of QSC. “We believe that in a consumer-centric world, the higher standard for gauging excellence in professional services should authentically measure how well each customer is served, not just how much business is done.”
