" New to Zillow " really?

Zillow, brokers and lenders that do not have a lender rating have a designation of "New to Zillow" on quotes submitted to borrowers. The 1st 2 lenders I looked at have been on Zillow for 2 years and both have over 5,000 quotes. In fact, 1 of them did have a 5/5 rating until you removed that rating because the review came from an employee. Why put that comment at all since the majority are not new, they just cant compete?

Clay and CBC,

Both of these are the list to be fixed. The ratings without a review is a bug, and the new to Zillow label will have a time restriction.

Clay,

I noticed that some Lenders actually have a 5 star rating, however do not show any reviews at all.  One in particular is a large new lender to Zillow and I am not sure how they can have a 5 Star Rating (2 reviews), but actually dont show any reviews at all when you try to open it up in their profile.  Do you know why that would be happening?

Only answer gets best answer by default and it was also a good one, would help if a realtor " practiced realty " in order to be an expert.
