SEATTLE, Oct. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Zillow®, the leading real estate and rental marketplace in the U.S., announced today that as part of an expanded marketing agreement, Realty Executives International will send listings from their Canadian franchises to Zillow's mobile app and website.
Zillow receives more than 100 million visits from non-U.S. audiences a year, with a large share from Canadai, and Realty Executives International's listings will soon benefit from that global exposure.
Listings from several leading Canadian brokerages will soon be live on Zillow. Each Canadian listing will include a description and photos of the property, and will prominently feature the listing agent – with contact information – as well as a link to the brokerage or franchise website.
"In the U.S., our industry partners have seen Zillow become a key part of driving maximum exposure for their listings," said Errol Samuelson, Zillow Group Chief Industry Development Officer. "It's exciting to us that Realty Executives International will be able to extend this benefit to their Canadian teams."
"Realty Executives has always valued providing an optimal real estate search experience on our proprietary sites; therefore, partnering with Zillow, who shares the same consumer-centric perspective, was a natural fit," said David Tedesco, CEO of Realty Executives International. "Our partnership with Zillow will change the way consumers search for properties in Canada, making it easier for Canadian consumers to search for homes in the U.S. and Canada, as well as U.S. buyers to search for properties in Canada."
