Trust is a feeling of confidence in someone that shows you believe they are honest, fair, and reliable
The amount of trust you place in other people depends on many factors:
- Doing what they say
- Honouring commitments
- Being consistent
- Telling the truth
- Admitting it when they lie
- Speaking from the heart
- Expressing their feelings
- Being Open
- Volunteering information
- Not omitting important details
- Saying they have secrets
- Showing Their Integrity
- Keeping secrets told to them
- Displaying loyalty
- Keeping their feelings under control
- Avoiding abusive behaviour
- Using assertive and respectful communication
- Restoring broken trust
In practice, we trust Doctors and Nurses for our care. We trust School Teachers to educate our children. We trust engineers to design buildings, homes and bridges which won’t fall down. These are rated as the most trusted professions.
The least trusted professions are Car Salespeople, Advertising People and Real Estate Agents.
However, it is unfair to paint everyone in a single profession with the same brush.
There are trust worthy real estate agents.
Therefore home buyers and sellers should consider what level of trust to place in the real estate agent based on their reliability, honesty, openness and integrity.

With respect to the survey:
- it is for auctions in October 2015
- from Victoria and New South Wales
- only real estate agencies with 4 or more publicly available quotes and auction results were included
- the “Sold Price vs Agent Quote” is the average percentage difference between the sold price and the public agency quote
- the “Sold Price vs realAs.com” is the average percentage difference between the sold price and the realAs.com prediction
realAs accurately predicts home sale prices
realAs predictions are 5% off home sale prices on average – Australia wide including auctions and private sales. Almost 9 out of 10 of realAs predictions are just 10% off the final home selling price. Does your real estate agent, valuer or data provider get even close to that?
We help home buyers research the right price to pay for a home.
Each Saturday morning we take the “hot auctions” selected by The Age and Sydney Morning Herald and tweet the realAs predictions. Here’s how we performed last weekend (chosen by Domain). Share your stories with us by Twitter, Facebook and email.
