About Zillow Profiles
Zillow is a home and real estate marketplace dedicated to helping homeowners, home buyers, sellers, renters, real estate agents, mortgage professionals, landlords and property managers find and share vital information about homes, real estate, mortgages and home improvement. Zillow is transforming the way consumers make home-related decisions and connect with professionals.
It starts with Zillow’s living database of more than 110 million U.S. homes – including homes for sale, homes for rent and homes not currently on the market. Add to that Zestimate® home values, Rent Zestimates and lots of other useful information you won’t find anywhere else, and as a result, consumers are given an edge in real estate.
Zillow.com is one of most buyer’s favorite sites to visit. Coldwell Banker Elite is a proud Zillow Pro partner with Zillow and we have had great success with engaging consumers on their platform. Our listings are updated to the system on a regular basis. We have setup a partnership with Zillow that allows for a rapid response to buyers and tremendous exposure for our seller’s listings.
The Zillow Pro package includes the following upgrades to our agents accounts, profiles and listings:
- The standard Realogy treatment has ads on the top right hand side of all Coldwell Banker listings that are fed to Zillow through Listhub with the listing agent’s name on the very bottom of the page. Our Zillow Pro package replaces that ad with your information. This drives many more leads directly to our agents.
- Agents receive more detailed reports on their listings on a more frequent basis.
- Your listings receive priority treatment. If there is an issue with one of your listings it will go to Zillow’s VIP support team. Your inquiry is sent to the top of the list to be taken care of.
- Normally on Zillow, your information is only put on the listing if you have a profile and claim the listing. With the Zillow Pro package your information is attached to your listing regardless of whether or not they have a Zillow profile. This information is pulled directly from ColdwellBanker.com. Of course we still highly recommend that your create a free Zillow.com profile so you can enhance your profile and listings.
- Broker logo on all of your listings for powerful branding.
