Jerry, thank you for the additional information. That information is going to be hard to find from a general website and for a rating of said realtors, I would be skeptical as to the reviews, since it could be easily influenced with the help of family, friends and third parties. You 100% want a Realtor who knows and essentially specializes in your area/county and know the market. A realtor who you select, can pull comparable sales within the last 3 months, to see what the current market value of your home is AND you can ask them to show you the public records of sales which they have handled first hand, within that time period as well, to show they are capable of selling your home. You want to treat this like an interview, with you hiring the employee who you feel is best suited to sell your home, based upon their experience and results. 3 years is a very long look back period, so those number would not necessarily give you a good idea of the realtors ability today, since market conditions vary over time. Moreover, even if a Realtor has done something in the past, it does not necessarily mean they can and will produce the same results. You want someone who is a known name in the area and can market your home accordingly. Many realtors control a lot of the common websites people use when looking for homes, so you want to ask if they have any control of those as well, so your home would pop up at the top of the list, instead of being on page 10, when people are looking. You can also call the State of Florida to see if the realtor has had any complaints or any discipline imposed over the years.

I am not local so a website or similar is needed.

is of no value. One must have a log in get value from this website.

Do you want to bow out of this question?

Did you call the number on the site and speak with someone for an agent or list of agents who can represent you? I have no problem opting out but want to make sure you contacted them and the fee is to be a member of the organization as a realtor
