Zillow does not want the public to be informed!I recommended another Zillow lender on a thread where a consumer directly asked for an honest lender. I did not promote myself, I don't even do loans in that state, I recommended someone who has proven themselves over time to be honest, helpful and knowledgeable. In Zillow's infinite wisdom, they removed my post citing it was a violation. When I asked why, this is what I received:"By posting or promoting another lender's name in our Advice Section, it deprives other lenders of their equal opportunities to promote their services through our Zillow Directory. "How exactly does a personal referral deprive anyone of anything. This is a stupid answer from a single minded person, promoting one does not demote another. Zillow, unfortunately has taken a turn for the worse. I have come to the conclusion that anyone shopping for a mortgage here is in dangerous territory. Zillow allows lenders to cheat, get caught and then unleashes them back on the public with no warning and now will not even allow us to direct the public to the honest ones when they ask. They allow their quoting system to produce inaccurate APRs, inaccurate calculations and they don't shut it down while fixing it. We are to play stupid and sit there while spammers, con artists and incompetents play Three Card Monty with the public while the registers go ching ching. If you are a consumer looking for a mortgage and thinking of working with anyone you found on Zillow, you should post their name on the advice forum and ask what their reputation is like. Do not assume that because anyone has a high rating or a "confirmed" badge that they are going to do the right thing for you.
