How come I contacted the wrong agent through your website????

Hello,

I filled out the form to contact "listing agent" to ask a question about a property listed on your site.  Instead I contacted an agent that had nothing to do with property or the real estate company; she wanted my business.  Not only that, the property is "under contract" according to this agent that has nothing to do with the property.

The property is listed with Long and Foster the real estate agent said that Zillow set up this connection because of her reputation.  She informed me that her agency is "Christian-based."

The property address is 292 SEDGEMOOR SQ #292,Sterling,VA 20164.  Please fix your records or your reputation will be considered questionable.

Hi Iseeley -

Helen is right. I checked the property mentioned and we only have a list of agents that specializes in this area and who can assist you in seeing this home or answer your questions. The listing agent of the property does not have a Zillow account that is why he is not available in the list but you can check who is sending the feed to Zillow. If you scroll down a bit, you'll notice the "Listing provided by" box that indicates who is listing the house with their brokerage information and a link to their website.

Thank you.

Zillow shows Buyer Agents at the top of property pages. These agents pay to advertise on Zillow. Listing agents are listed at the bottom of the page.

Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the property listing page. The listing agent is shown and can be contacted from there.

You can choose to contact the listing agent, just keep in mind that until you hire a buyer agent, every person you talk to is working for the Seller, not you, so be very careful.  If you call the listing agent and he knows non-material facts, it will not be shared with you.
