ZipRealty Reaches 100,000 Homes Sold Milestone
The National Brokerage's Total Sales Volume Surpasses $29 Billion
EMERYVILLE, Calif., April XX, 2010 - Leading national full-service, online-based real estate brokerage ZipRealty (NASDAQ: ZIPR; www.ziprealty.com) announced today that the company has completed over 100,000 real estate transactions valued in total at over $29 billion since launching in 1999.
ZipRealty, which now serves 35 markets nationwide and employs over 3,000 agents, is also excited to announce the brokerage has ranked fifth for transactions nationally in 2009 on RISMedia's "22nd Annual Power Broker Report & Survey" (http://livemag.rismedia.com). RISMedia ranks the nation's largest residential real estate brokerage companies by transaction and sales-dollar volume and selected ZipRealty on the basis of the company's performance in 2009, including more than $5 billion in sales volume and 23,000 completed transactions.
"We are extremely honored to have reached two amazing milestones in our company's relatively short history. In the last ten years, we've matured from a dotcom start-up to one of the country's top five brokers," said ZipRealty President and CEO Patrick Lashinsky. "This feat speaks to the strength of both our team of agents and the valued buyers and sellers who have helped us grow and expand in the face of an unprecedented transition in the housing market."
Other benchmarks ZipRealty has crossed in the past year include:
Launching the brokerage's first iPhone application, now also available for Apple's iPad
Winning the 2009 Webware100 Award for Commerce
Working with Bank of America to streamline the buying process by letting ZipRealty.com visitors research the loans that best fit their needs, get pre-approved and even apply for a mortgage online
