Thank you Carl, the Sold listings tab is a new feature however we do not disclose the company information, we only show the listings financial information (which is the same information) that was submitted in the listing. If you do not want your recent sales visible please log into your account and click the "do not show" my sold listings link. If you have any questions please feel free to call us at 888-777-9893.

Are you naming the Client Companies? That is something we ritually DO NOT do, and the anonymity would carry through to the Sold Listings area. I am uncertain why a Broker may not want the public to know.

The reason for them to post prices is to theoretically give us a database for comparables. Whether it is a valuable source or not is questionable, but that is the issue.

I think there's an option to turn it off at the bottom of the "Website" tab in BrokerWorks.
