Zillow has created 80+ million Web pages - one for most every home in America. These pages include Zestimates, satellite and overhead photos, valuation information, and details about the home's sale history. In addition, listing agents and homeowners can further contribute to these pages by uploading their own pictures, planting virtual ‘for sale' signs in their virtual front yards, posting their ‘Make Me Move' price, adding in home improvement information and writing what they love about their home, all for free! If you would like additional exposure for yourself or your listings, check out our EZ Ad product where you can target your advertising by zip code for as little as a penny each time the ad is viewed.
Zillow is a media site. This means revenue is generated by selling advertising around site content. We do not charge to post listings to the site, nor do we sell leads or get involved in the transaction.
I have been involved within the real estate community for about 6 years.
I work as a Partner Relations Manager for Zillow.com, responsible for both establishing and growing relationships with top Real Estate companies and their Agents, industry mavens, and Real Estate media outlets. With a variety of free tools available to Agents, such as free postings of listings, Zillow offers an attractive platform for Agents to market themselves and their listings to the 4-5 millions people who come to the site each month.
In addition to conducting individual meetings with Brokers, I also participate in many key Real Estate trade events such as: Inman Real Estate Connect, RIS Media, Real Trends, and various brokerage national sales events.
Prior to Zillow, I was working with one of the nation's largest independent Exchange Accomodators as a Vice President for the Pacific Northwest region assisting real estate investors with their 1031 tax-deferred exchange transactions. In addition, as a Regional Director I consulted with commercial real estate owners performing tax sheltering cost segregation analysis studies.
I earned a BA in Finance & International Business from Seattle University, a MBA in Entrepreneurship from Babson College, and currently reside in Seattle, WA.
