Agents Digging the New Home Details Page Design
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 Zillow.com. … 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, SeattleHome.com
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.”
