Mar 30, 2016

SEATTLE – March 30, 2016 – Zillow Group, which houses a portfolio of the largest and most vibrant real estate and home-related brands on mobile and Web, today announced that consumer-submitted content has reached a new milestone as more than 2 million reviews of real estate professionals have been published on Zillow and Trulia. The number of reviews has doubled since January 2015.

The ability to post reviews on agents, mortgage and other real estate professionals launched on Zillow in December 2010, and Trulia added the functionality in 2011.  

“Zillow Group provides a very trustworthy review system where clients are free to say whatever they want about their agents,” said Ron Escobar, broker and team leader of The Escobar Group, Los Angeles Calif. “Our team recently achieved 100 five star reviews and we are ecstatic! The emotional payback for our effort comes when we get to read how the clients felt about an interaction with our team. The social validation reviews give to other potential clients is a great benefit, and we get calls and leads from people that have read all of our reviews.”

Zillow Group has a moderation process to ensure the reviews on Zillow and Trulia are high quality and credible. In order to post a review, every reviewer must have an account on one of the sites and must specify what service the agent provided. Finally, all reviews are screened through proprietary Zillow Group fraud filters and read by a dedicated team.

All reviews are available to agents, brokers and MLSs to publish on their sites through Zillow® Tech Connect: Reviews. Agents and brokers can showcase the same reviews found on Zillow and Trulia on their personal websites for free. Companies and brokerages interested in joining Zillow Tech Connect: Reviews can email for more information.
