Hi Sublimus,

Zillow takes the comparables from the surrounding area.  By looking at your profile, this included comparable sales in Yonkers.

When a Realtor determines the value of your property, they look within your specific neighborhood.  Comparables include active, pending, conditional contract and sold listings within the last few months. 

In this case, a Realtor's determination of the value of your property will be different and in some cases, lower than that of Zillow's.
