Zillow also has a list of the “most active” Lakeville agents including David Nelson with RE/MAX, Janelle Pierzina with Edina Realty, Steve Pemberton with Coldwell Banker and The Fiorella Group with RE/MAX

I find it strange that their isn’t any overlap in the Lakeville real estate agents identified by Realtor.com and Zillow.com. If you are identifying agents based on their sales activity, the list should be the same. If you are taking into account other performance criteria, than you shouldn’t label the list as “most active”. Cleary there is something that isn’t being disclosed in how they compile their list of agents.
