StreetEasy Experts is an agent advertising program that helps NYC buyers find and connect with agents who have relevant experience in buildings/properties where they’re already searching.
How does the program work?
Qualifying agents will be displayed on both building and listing detail pages associated with buildings where they have recent sell side and buy side deal experience. Potential buyers and sellers will see an agent’s photo, contact information, and deal experience and have the opportunity to select an agent to contact.
Can I become an Expert right now?
Before agents can participate in Experts, their brokerage will need to have signed a brokerage-level agreement with StreetEasy. Agents will then need to qualify for a specific building based on their last 10 years of completed sales deals and any active listings.

How do I qualify for this program?
Once an agent’s brokerage has signed a brokerage-level agreement with StreetEasy, agents will then need to qualify for a specific building based on their last 10 years of completed sales deals and any active listings. In order to make sure deal experience can be verified, agents must claim their deals on StreetEasy.
How do I claim my deals on StreetEasy?
- Log in to your StreetEasy agent account
- Locate the building page of the listing in question
- Navigate to the Units section
- Find the unit listing from either Active Units or Unavailable Units
- Click on the listing and go to the listing history
- Click on the closing page matching your deal date
- Select “Claim” to access the closing page
Please note that if you don’t see “Claim” or “Recorded Closing” it means that we haven’t yet received the closing record from ACRIS (NY Department of Finance).
Does it cost money?
With Experts, agents only pay if the buyer they connected with on StreetEasy successfully closes on a home. Our success is tied to agents’ success.
How does the success fee work?
Through StreetEasy Experts, agents work with each client to a successful close, providing us with brief status updates along the way. Once an agent closes a transaction with a buyer, the brokerage will make payment of a success fee on the agent’s behalf to StreetEasy.
Agents who are strong converters and provide a superior customer experience will, over time, be eligible to receive more connections through the program, while agents who do not work with the connections we deliver or update us on their progress risk being placed on hold from the program.
How is this different from Premier Agent?
Experts is a program for experienced agents on StreetEasy who want to work with home shoppers in specific buildings where they have previous experience. There will be no upfront charge for connections to StreetEasy home shoppers. Instead, StreetEasy will charge an industry standard Success Fee (i.e., a referral fee) only when they have closed a successful transaction.
