Brion LaPointe is a regular user of Zillow. He’s a tech-savvy guy who formerly worked as a product design engineer for companies such as Apple, Sony and Palm. While considering refinancing his mortgage, LaPointe checked out reviews of lenders on Zillow “to assess user experiences with prospective mortgage brokers” and to ensure he got the lowest fixed interest rate and closing costs available.
LaPointe ended up working with lender Lee Hoff and said Hoff “was a perfect fit for this approach, and the entire process and transaction was completed with the upmost convenience without leaving my residence.”
On May 17, LaPointe submitted a review of Hoff on Zillow and was automatically entered in a drawing for an Apple iPad — which he ended up winning.
