I do not think there is any correlation to successfully selling your property just because one agent or agency has sold 2-3 more listings than another one. If one agency has 200 agents vs perhaps 75 agents in other agencys, then the odds(statistically) are greater of that larger agency having more transactions in your location. It does not mean they are better or more efficient. There are some agencys that focus on short sales/foreclosures and if there are a lot of those in your area then that agency will win, but that statistic has no relation to whether they are better or best for you.
The Internet has leveled the playing field tremendously. I for instance sell property all over the city and a variety of burbs. I can do all the significant marketing as anyone else and I often do it for less. You should shop around and let a variety of agents explain what they do and how much they charge. Don't get caught up in statistics.

Thankfully statistics can be normalized.  The next time your doctor says this drug has killed 95% of those that took it, but don't get caught up in statistics.

The Realtor MLS has a rating system for the top 10 companies in any given town. If you call me or email me I will tell you for whatever town you are searching in.
It also tells each individual agent how they rate for sales in that town.
For instance, my company is #1 in Schaumburg and I am 11 out of the approx 40,000 agents that are able to sell in Schaumburg. I am not able to find out who the 10 ahead of me are though.

Thanks so much for the great answer.  I'm sure that's true for agencies - wondering about for individuals? Especially in a neighborhood where a high percentage of the population is Spanish speaking?

Linda
