I know I have written about this in the past, and many said - they could care less about Zillow.
Have to say, I am looking for a listing agent for a high-end home in a small town in AZ. There is no presence here in the Rain. I scoured CRS and jotted a few names down, but these are wonderful clients, so want to find an agent who has the experience to expertly guide them through a sale. I want to KNOW they had sales, so went to Zillow to see what was recorded there. I also want to look at their web sites to see how they present their new listings.
Wonder how many buyers and sellers do this too before making a decision?
I know, I have a client that WORKS for Zillow, and we laugh all the time about my negativity when it comes to Z.....but feel like we do need to provide our sales, our CORRECT sales. Sometimes they get the sale with the wrong sales price and wrong sales date. I used to ALWAYS delete those emails from Zillow asking me for information. I had a change of heart. If another agent is looking for my information, I want all my sales on there. There are not 60+ sales per year, but I am a solo agent with no assistant or buyer's agent with a respectable amount of sales.
