Zillow is the largest online real estate marketplace, providing consumers with real estate data and connecting them to local real estate professionals. It is often the consumer’s first point of contact with potential realtors. As a real estate agent, you maintain a Zillow profile that displays your contact information, active listings, past sales, and ratings/reviews. Your average star rating and total number of reviews is prominently displayed, accompanying your name when anyone does an agent search on Zillow, as well as anytime you appear next to a listing.
Your online reputation is a huge factor in the growth and success of your real estate business. Make it work for you with 5starRocket’s complete review management tool.
