Zillow

Zillow, Inc. founded and operates Zillow.com – a leading online real estate marketplace dedicated to helping homeowners, buyers, sellers, renters, real estate agents, mortgage professionals, landlords, and property managers find and share vital information about homes, real estate, and mortgages. Zilow, Inc. also operates Zillow Mortgage Marketplace and Zillow Mobile.

Rich Barton and Lloyd Frink started Zillow in early 2005, and Zillow.com launched in early 2006 with data and information on millions of U.S. homes. Zillow’s goal is to help people make intelligent decisions about their homes – whether it’s buying a home, selling, renting, leasing, remodeling or financing. It’s all about empowering people with data and information.

Zillow is one of the most-visited U.S. real estate brands. Zillow Mobile, which boasts the most popular real estate apps on iPhone, iPad and Android, as well as a BlackBerry app that was launched in March 2011, is used 8 million times per month, with more than 41 million visits to home detail pages.

In addition to information and data on nearly all homes in the U.S. (100 million and counting), Zillow visitors can search homes for sale, homes for rent, recently sold homes, Make Me Move homes and more.

Within Zillow Mortgage Marketplace, borrowers connect with lenders to find loans and get the best mortgage rates. Potential buyers and sellers can find a professional in the real estate directory or ask questions and find answers in Zillow Advice. And homeowners can browse remodeling ideas in Dueling Digs, or dig into the latest real estate trends in their neighborhood via Zillow’s expansive local data pages.

Zillow is a media business model and makes money selling targeted, relevant advertising to real estate professionals, and connecting home and mortgage shoppers with professionals who can help them.

Zillow began trading on the NASDAQ Stock Market on July 20, 2011.
