Every September I like to remind readers that 5280 does not rate real estate agents the way it does doctors and other professionals. A Minnesota company “nominates” agents with minimum sales and no complaints and then upsells them to buy display space in a paid advertising supplement published by 5280. Any agent who says he or she has been named a 5-Star Professional by 5280 Magazine is bending the truth. .
