Sara Bonert: My First Day (Back) at Zillow

Sara and her three-month old daughter, Piper.

Recently you’ve read about the first days at Zillow for Director of Industry Outreach and Social Media, Jay Thompson and Vice President Partner Relations, Bob Bemis.  Even though I’ve been at Zillow for more than 5 years, today is a first day for me, too.  It’s great to be back after being out for three months on maternity leave.

One good thing about multiple late-night feedings is that it afforded me some quiet time to keep up with email and industry news (I fell in love with my iPad during this time all over again).

However, a big part of my job is being on the road attending conferences and speaking with agents and brokers in person about Zillow.  And that can’t be done behind a computer screen, so hopefully Delta kept my seat warm for me while I was out!  I’m jumping right into it by attending the Realty Alliance conference in Atlanta this week and then off to Dallas next week for one of my favorite broker conferences, the Gathering of Eagles.

While dropping the baby off at day care is hard after being with her constantly for the last three months, I look forward to getting back into the Z universe and working with our real estate partners.

I hope to see you soon!
