Nothing surprises me these days.  Then again, as soon as I say that something happens that surprises me.  Doubtful anything Z doses will surprise me. There is a reason some refer to Z as Z Devil. Just ask Annette!

The REAL trend for which agents must be concerned is the increasing number of enterprises building barriers between the citizen and real estate agent.

My opinion of Zdevil has changed little.

I did not know about this, but I tend not to like anything associated with zillow.  They definitely seem like a company looking to scam people.

That's a good thing.  I know Keller Williams did the same earlier in the year.  It was in their contract w/DotLoop.

Z is trying to be like Amazon.  It's trying to monopolize everything they can in real estate.  Then again, many agents are paying tons of money for leads to z.

In Colorado we have our own electronic contract software so no ZipForms or DotLoop.

I wonder what else Zillow may buy ???

Z has owned Dotloop for a while now, and our agreement through KW did not allow them to do this, however as we end our contract with them I suspect that they may go after our data too.

What do you mean scrubbing? The reason RM does not use DL is because they are owned by Z. Just in case that was going to happen, they weren't going to get a hold of our clients.

The question should be: "When are agents finally going to stop posting their listing in the MLS only so they can be hijacked by iCompanies with NAR's blessings?"

Denise,

The majority of our clients have no time for Zillow, they are busy listing and selling.  Just keep in mind, Zillow has to answer to their stockholders and they are doing all kinds of things to promise profit and who knows what else.  Follow the money $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I have dispised DotLoop for years and I always shake my head when those stupid little boxes come through on contracts for my clients to sign. 

They had a breach in security years ago, they've never been secure, yet brokerages continue to use them. Makes no sense to me at all.
