want to add amenities to my search criteria. how?

Answer

Currently Zillow does not support searches w/amenities.  In Cary neighborhood amenities are something my clients are looking for.  I would hope that Zillow would consider including this feature in the future.

How do achieve the "Local Expert" Badge?

Answer

Sunnyview - I would say that is how you get a Zillow all star badge.  Based on what I have seen you have to have the most listings in your area to qualify for this honor.

Answer

Diverse Solutions is pretty expensive.  TigerDirect is another good solution.

How do you get rated on zillow?

I'm just curious...some profiles have ratings and some don't.  Is there a survey on Zillow for clients?

Craigslist?

Answer

How are you advertising and positioning yourself on Craigslist?  If you have a home that is a real bargain you could say something like "Deal of the Day in My Hometown" instead of 4BR, 3.5 Baths etc.  The wording is key on a site like Craigslist to call attention to your listing.

any agents think it a crime that Zillow now charges us to post our own listing?

Answer

I don't buy the argument that the fee is designed to keep agents from providing inaccurate information.  Last week I was at Inman in NY and Spencer indicated that is the logic behind the change and that only 1% of all agents post their listings individually.  I personally feel that individual branding is key to differentiating an agent in the marketplace.
