Martin Dumont of Groupe Sutton - Synergie in Montreal earned the award of top agent in Canada for 2021 by The review site analyzes all the ratings and reviews on the site to compile a list of the Top 100 Real Estate Agents in Canada.

“Unlike other agent ranking sites, agents can’t pay to have negative reviews removed or hidden and cannot pay to be included on the list of top-rated agents,” says Rate-My-Agent. The company won't disclose exactly how it verifies reviews “to protect the integrity of the process,” but it says “there have been many attempts by agents to game the system and rankings, which is why we keep our algorithms a closely held secret.”  

This year the company reports over a dozen agents caught cheating.  “It’s not fair to the agents who earn their reviews honestly, so we implemented a penalty system.”   According to the site’s review guidelines, here’s how the penalty works:

  • Warning added to the agent’s profile advising visitors of the violation.  The warning will be visible for two weeks per review that is found to be in violation. 
  • Payment of a $500 fine per violation (every review in violation) to a charity chosen by
  • Demote the agent’s profile to the bottom of the rankings.


For example, if the agent had three fake reviews, the warning will be visible for six weeks, and a fine of $1500 paid to a charity chosen by, before the warning is removed and rankings restored.
