We couldn’t be more pleased to hear success stories from real estate agents about the recent redesign of the home details page (“House Hunting on Zillow Just Got Easier“).

Here are a few of my favorites:

“I answered a lead on Memorial Day. I now have 2 new listings and a buy (we are probably writing an offer in the next few days on a property we have identified). … When I asked the client why he was not using the agent who sold him the condo his response was I seemed like a much more active agent. I am all over Zillow and they love Zillow. I love the sites my clients love. I have not had such a love fest from another site”.  — Andrea Geller, Sudler Sotheby’s International Realty

Comments on a blog post, asking if Zillow advertising works:

“Ryan, I would have told you no 60 days ago. But Zillow has changed they way listings look and made it easier to contact you if you have the zip code. I have gone ahead and purchase 10 zip codes in my area and am getting 1-2 leads a day. Good solid leads that want cma or want to see home.” — Steve Volkers, Grand Rapids Real Estate, Keller Williams Realty


“I’ve been advertising on Zillow for more than a year (in fact, I just renewed my ZIPs — I have 3 of them), and I receive leads every day. … The thing is you want your clients to say that they see you everywhere online. You can’t look for a home in my preferred ZIPs without running into me, and Zillow is a big part of that exposure.”  — Elizabeth Weintraub, Sacramento, CA, Lyon Real Estate


Excerpt from an agent using Zillow:

“In my continuing attempts to keep my clients on the cutting edge of modern real estate marketing strategies and techniques, I have decided to align myself with … My partnership with Zillow will allow my clients far greater online exposure to a well qualified audience of buyers.
Rob Schmaus, Edmonds, WA, Windermere


From an agent who is very active on Zillow Advice:

“I actually didn’t get any business through Zillow for the first few months, but have had a half-dozen potential buyers contact me in the past couple of months.   A couple of them are serious buyers, so it seems to be paying off.”

Sam DeBord, Seattle, WA,

From a contributor on Zillow Advice:

“2 of my 5 closed escrow this year so far this year are from zillow.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Zillow!  I think it’s not just about you, it’s about the compassion that you show on your posts, even if they are controversial.”
