A much-talked-about Realtor ranking system is going by the wayside.
Realtor.com, which rolled out the controversial "Agent Match" app as a trial in Las Vegas and northern Colorado last month, said this week that ranking Realtors based on complicated algorithms turned out to be misguided, according to The Commercial Record.
"Numbers don't lie, but they don't necessarily tell the whole story, either," said Realtor.com President Errol Samuelson in making the announcement.
Realtors had protested the app, perturbed that it was being used on a website that pays the National Association of Realtors for rights to the trade organization's logo.
