Congrats to Zillow's Spencer Rascoff

Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

Zillow Map Congratulations are in order for Spencer Rascoff  the new CEO of

Rich Barton is "stepping up" to chairman and farmer COO Rascoff is stepping up to CEO.

According to VentureBeat  Does Zillow CEO’s exit mean the IPO’s off? 

"The company has announced that COO Spencer Rascoff is replacing Barton as CEO. Zillow, of course, is trying to cast this as a smooth transition. Rascoff, formerly Zillow’s chief financial officer and head of marketing, has been running much of the company’s operations. And Barton is remaining as chairman, a classic move that Silicon Valley spinmasters like to call “stepping up,” not “stepping down.”

According to the VentureBeat article that fact that Barton is no longer COO may signal that an IPO is not going to happen but that Zillow is for sale? 

The VentureBeat article says Zillow is profitable.   Zillow started in 2005 or 2006?  Zestimates were the first thing they offered, to consumers. Next they've become a listing site... 

Congrats Spencer!

These moves for many (and for me) are pretty much behind the scenes. Interesting to read about. Not sure this signals a serious change, not sure it is needed.

Start catching myself that I can't even often form and opinion...

Endre Zillow buying ActiveRain was Joe Ferrara.  I miss him. He was not really a fan of ActiveRain or Zillow.... 

Jon Drew left Zillow. David left Zillow.  Cha cha changes.  The IPO being linked to Barton vs. selling linked to Spencer is interesting but way over my head.
