sellers, renters, and real estate professionals, today launched a new find an
agent directory, which connects Trulia’s more than 31 million monthly visitors
with the largest agent search directory in the industry. The agent directory

trying to find one,” said Pete Flint, CEO of Trulia. “Trulia’s new agent

meets their individual needs, while also providing a powerful way for agents
to connect with prospects and grow their businesses.”

contact agents that meet their specific needs.Home buyers and sellers can
gain insight into specific agents based on their previous home sales, active
listings and recommendations from past clients as well as see advice they have
provided to other people within the Trulia Community.

directory, home buyerslike us will be able to find an agent they can trust
who has a great track record in their neighborhood."
