Chris Crocker Joins Zillow as Vice President of Strategic Partnerships
Chris brings more than 16 years of experience in the real estate industry and will be responsible for guiding initiatives for the industry and developing strategic partnerships with brokers. Chris previously served as regional vice president of operations for the Southwestern U.S. region of NRT, LLC, the nation’s largest real estate brokerage.
Chris’s career has had a great mix of demanding operational roles and those with a creative/innovative flair. Chris most recently was VP of operations at Equator. Prior to Equator, Chris was the vice president of NRT’s Southwest region — so he knows a bit about brokerage and agent needs, wants and worries.
He also served on the board of directors and strategic planning and finance committee for the California Association of Realtors. He also was a founding board member for the California statewide MLS initiative and has been a frequent speaker at real estate conferences addressing the impacts of technology, competition and transparency on the real estate industry.
With his extensive and varied background across multiple real estate disciplines, Chris will be an integral part of Zillow’s growing and talented industry relations team, which includes Bob Bemis, vice president of partner relations; Sara Bonert, vice president of broker services; Andrew Wild, director of brokerage sales; Jay Thompson, director of industry outreach and social media; and Brad Andersohn, national outreach manager and director of Zillow Academy.
Welcome to the team, Chris.
