My Top Agent, how it all started.
In 2015 Lisa McCarthy was looking to sell her property. Consequently, she found herself spending many weeks, searching through newspapers and websites in order to find a suitable Agent. For the most part, she found plenty to choose from, however, there was a lack of data to back up their claims to being "Top Agents".
Lisa knew, that there must be a better way. To this end, My Top Agent was created and it forged a clearer path for Vendors looking for Top Agents specific to their area.
