See below for some Frequently Asked Questions about Agent Tools.
Q: What is Agent Tools?
StreetEasy Agent Tools offers a direct listing entry solution that provides agents with an upgraded experience that simplifies creating a listing on StreetEasy, and lets them quickly and accurately publish up.

Q: Who has access to Agent Tools and the dedicated agent app?
All brokerages wishing to advertise sale and rental listings on StreetEasy must use Agent Tools to publish the listings. StreetEasy is no longer supporting feeds. We are working with all brokerages that currently send listings to us in a feed, to transition them to direct entry with Agent Tools. We are here to offer support and training during this transition.
Q: If I am using a Feed, how long before I have to transition to direct listing entry with Agent Tools?
Starting in November 2019, the transition will happen over the next several months. Our teams will be working closely with brokerages to ensure a smooth transition, in addition to providing dedicated resources and training for agents. We will be reaching out to our key contact of record for each brokerage directly to schedule the date of change and will then confirm this in an email to all agents. If you would like to confirm who our contact of record is, please email email@example.com or live chat with us from your StreetEasy account.
Q: Is there an added cost?
There is no cost to use Agent Tools. It’s free!

Q: Will there be any impact on my existing listings when I move from a Feed to Agent Tools?
Existing listings remain as they are and can continue to be modified as needed. The only impact for existing listings is that agents can see the new listing entry software when making new edits. Agent can also edit existing listings once they’ve downloaded and logged-in to the new StreetEasy Agent Tools app.
