Join Us for a #NextGenAgent Chat: Harnessing the Power of Data

Real Estate Technology with Zillow

Greetings Rainers!

With so much housing data available, how do you decide what might be relevant or interesting to your clients? How do you use data to better understand the market and communicate your expertise to home shoppers? Join Zillow in our next Twitter chat to explore these questions and share learnings with fellow agents.

Why a Twitter chat?

Zillow’s #NextGenAgent Twitter chats are a positive forum where agents can freely discuss today’s industry hot topics, hear actionable advice and be part of an elite community of real estate professionals.


Zillow’s next Twitter chat is scheduled for Wednesday, April 29, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. PT / 1:30 to 2:00 p.m. ET.


You! All are welcome to participate. This chat will be hosted by Stan Humphries (@StanHumphries), Zillow chief economist, and Kevin Lisota (@KevinListoa), a tech- and social-savvy broker from Seattle. Listen and contribute to a discussion of what it means to be a successful “Next-Generation Agent,” and learn about harnessing the power of data..

What are the topics?

Prepare for the chat ahead of time. These are the questions that will be discussed:

  • What housing data do your clients find most interesting?
  • What data do you include in CMAs for clients?
  • How do you utilize data in your marketing (i.e., mailers, newsletters, social media)?
  • What would make it easier to share market data with your clients?
  • How do you stay up-to-date with the housing market?
  • How do you use housing data to your advantage?

Chat to win!

Just by participating in the chat, you’ll have the chance to win a few cups of coffee on us! Four active participants will be selected to win a $25 Starbucks gift card.  Keep tweeting  some free coffee could be headed your way. See the official contest rules here.

Other details

We’ll be using TweetChat to manage the chat, so you’ll find us at Don’t forget to use the hashtag #NextGenAgent in all of your Twitter chat questions and comments.

But wait, there’s more!

Right before the chat, Zillow Academy will be hosting a webinar about “Mastering the Zillow Zestimate.” Join a Zillow economist for tips on talking about the Zestimate with clients. Register here.

Doyle Lee Austin Davison Iv - it's quite different than a Summit. Those are in-person events with multiple topics. This is all held live on Twitter, with one primary topic -- in this case, using data. Hope you can drop in, they are educational AND fun!

Jay - It looks like I missed this.  It sounds like it would have been interesting though I've never participated in a Twitter Chat.
