What is Zillow?
Our mission is to empower consumers with information and tools to make smart decisions about homes, real estate and mortgages.
What We Do
Zillow is a home and real estate marketplace dedicated to helping homeowners, home buyers, sellers, renters, real estate agents, mortgage professionals, landlords and property managers find and share vital information about homes, real estate, mortgages, and home improvement. We are transforming the way consumers make home-related decisions and connect with professionals.
It starts with our living database of more than 110 million U.S. homes - including homes for sale, homes for rent and homes not currently on the market. Add to that Zestimate® home values, Rent Zestimates and lots of other useful information you won't find anywhere else, and as a result, consumers are given an edge in real estate.
Under the Zillow brand, Zillow operates Zillow.com, Zillow Mobile, Zillow Mortgage Marketplace, Zillow Rentals, and Zillow Digs. Zillow's portfolio also includes StreetEasy®, HotPads™ and several other businesses - Buyfolio™, Diverse Solutions®, Mortech™ and Postlets® -- that provide a robust and growing suite of tools and services to help local real estate, mortgage, rental and home improvement professionals better manage and market their businesses. Learn about the full Zillow portfolio of brands and businesses.
In addition, Zillow operates the largest real estate and rental advertising networks in the U.S. in partnership with Yahoo! Homes! Through the Yahoo!-Zillow Real Estate Network and the Zillow Rental Network, advertisers get the value of having their listings distributed to the largest audience of home shoppers and renters in the U.S. via Zillow.com, Zillow Mobile and Yahoo! Homes.
Founded in 2005, the company is headquartered in Seattle with offices in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Irvine, Calif. and Lincoln, Neb.
What's With the Name?
The Zillow name evolved from the desire to make zillions of data points for homes accessible to everyone. And, since a home is about more than just data - it is where you lay your head to rest at night, like a pillow - "Zillow" was born.
