Zillow, Top Lenders?

What happened to your top lender's list? On some discussion pages you are showing a top lender with only 1-2 reviews, and 1 guy with 2 reviews and a 3/5 rating. You should drop the list until you can fix it because someone may take your recommendation not knowing what the list means, only that they are a " Top Lender ".

They know it is a problem since their last program update...  but it takes them time to make any changes.  From what I heard, they are working on it.

But the sort for most quotes on the directory has been broken for at least two years, and has always skewed which lenders show up as top lenders.

Ones that should have been on the list and near the top of the list never have been.  I only found out when trying to graph frequency of quoting, and trying to compare the frequency as a function of sort order to word usage frequency.  I brought it to Zillow's attention in February, and provided a graph showing how many were out of order and how much.

Yeah, top lenders in Illinois seem like an odd compilation.  The national board has 1 person with 2 reviews.  Funny!

Ha!  I went to that Zillow event in Chicago and met Nate Moch, and he said Pasa is always sending charts and graphs on various subjects to Zillow. I haven't looked through all of Pasa's posts, but I vaguely recall a very detailed string of posts on one of the threads. Pasa must be an actuary. Perhaps Zillow should hire him/her on as a consultant for market analysis; of course, why do that when it's all volunteered anyway. ;-)
