A well-informed consumer is always great to work with, and sites like this one help to educate the average person on what's out there, what they can likely afford, etc.&nbsp;<br/><br/>tl;dr: No complaints! :) Sat, 09 Nov 2013 22:59:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Are-you-afraid-of-Zillow/518481/ 2013-11-09T22:59:00Z Technology is changing so ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Are-you-afraid-of-Zillow/518481/ Technology is changing so quickly and I think several agencies are afraid to adapt. &nbsp;They invest in the traditional marketing because the are "afraid" to learn of new portals that will be a benefit to their client. The more portals I have to market for my Seller. &nbsp;The better service I am providing. &nbsp;It's my responsibility to know as much to help my clients.

When I was first approached about jointing Zillow I was leery. So I started calling agents that I saw appearing on Zillow and asked them if it was&nbsp;worth the cost&nbsp;and I found not one person who had any negative thing to say, it was all good. I didn't just call in my area, but all across the U.S. &nbsp;I have to say that they were right. I am getting leads all the time and must say it was worth it.
