The 2021 QE Award is based upon the results of an independent survey limited solely to buyers and sellers who were in a real estate transaction that actually closed with participating real estate companies. QSC, with its sister company Leading Research Corporation, administer the survey process to ensure that every past customer is surveyed, preventing agents or companies from selectivity, influence, interference or manipulation in any way.
Today consumers are seeking transparency, accountability, and trusted information to help them make better, more informed decisions and choices. Harry Norman, REALTORS® has elected to participate in service assessment and feedback following every transaction, which is setting a new and better standard for excellence.
“Harry Norman, REALTORS® is not just raising the bar for customer service, they’ve committed to a whole new standard knowing consumers are tired of seeing meaningless perfect reviews where every agent has a five-star rating,” states Romito. “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.”
The QE Award is based upon aggregated overall customer satisfaction as a percentage of all returned surveys of real customers where every past customer has been surveyed without selectivity, editing, deletion, cleansing or manipulation. “No other system exists, anywhere, in the real estate industry that can legitimately make that claim,” added Romito.
