What are Zillow profiles?
A Zillow profile is a page on Zillow about you; it's where you tell others about yourself. You can add a photo, contact information, a description of yourself and links to your Web site, blog and your pages on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Also, all of the contributions you make on Zillow will link directly to your profile.
How can I update my profile?
You can access your profile through My Zillow. Just click on Profile, then click "Edit" in each of the respective sections: Contact Information, Professional Information, or About Me. You can also see your Zillow activity on your profile page, such as homes you post for sale, questions and answers you write, and photos you post.
Can I delete my profile?
Sorry, you cannot delete your profile. However, to display only the minimum amount of information required, do not fill out the Contact Information and About Me sections of your profile (or delete the information in these sections if you've already added it).
I see a profile that contains objectionable content. What do I do?
Please click the "Flag content" link on the profile, and Zillow Customer Support will review it.
Who can create a profile on Zillow?
Anyone can create a profile -- whether you're a buyer, seller, agent, homeowner, or real estate professional. Basically, anyone involved in real estate on a personal or professional level can create a profile.
Who can see my profile?
Anyone can see your profile. Your profile has a public view -- the version everyone else sees -- and a private view, which is your administrative view. To see your profile's public view, go to My Zillow, then click Profile, then click "See public view" at the top of your profile page.
Where will my profile appear?
Your screen name and a link to your profile -- and a photo of yourself, if you added one -- will appear anywhere on the Zillow site where you make a contribution, including Zillow Advice, or in the local sections, if you added photos.
