Perhaps, I was not clear enough. See who has what listed and is moving it. I agree signs up on residential for 2-3 years is not a good sign. You want to look for those with signs who go up and turn into In-Contract and SOLD.

Also look for who holds those open Houses, if they are held open. The local paper can also show who is selling what and for how much.

Any agent can advertise, not all can be Top Sellers. Referrals are good but you need to specifically ask the person referring what that agent did for them. Not all agents are good in all neighborhoods - you want an agent who can sell yours!

Ask local friends and family, Ask the agent for sales #s, ask them how many homes they have seen in the past 30 days in your zip code of choice?  I see signs from agents that are 2-3 years old, they just let them rot in the ground.   Old signs = lousy agents.

ask your local agent to provide sales report on sold houses and you will be able to find.

You can start by finding the realtor (s) that do the most marketing and  open houses in your neighborhood and ask them what their success in that neighborhood has been and for how long. Some realtors just sell listings and dont work with the buyers, some the buyers and not the sellers and some do both. Also, find out if they specialize in your type of sale. Traditional or short sale. Bank owned agents typically have a relationship with the bank and dont always specialize in a neighborhood selling traditional or short sales.As the top realtor in my neighborhood, I have statistics for those that I meet that were not referred to me or may not have seen my marketing. You could ask if they have the same.

I dont think there is any reliable source for that information. I have never seen it. Too many factors.

Its best to get referrals for your immediate area.
