Zillow Announces New Version of Agent Hub
Now real estate professionals can manage contacts with forwarding rules,
schedule branded email campaigns and get personalized recommendations to
market their businesses - on mobile and the Web
SEATTLE, March 21, 2013
SEATTLE, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Zillow, Inc. (NASDAQ: Z), the leading
real estate and home-related marketplace, today announced a major update to
Agent Hub, a free online portal for real estate agents on Zillow®, where real
estate agents can find and manage all their important Zillow-related
information and resources in one convenient place.
Agent Hub allows agents to easily access Zillow's customer relationship
management, or CRM, platform to help agents better manage and organize
contacts received from Zillow. With this major enhancement, Zillow's CRM
platform now enables agents to efficiently respond to new customer contacts by
providing powerful filtering and response tools on mobile and Web browsers.
oForwarding Rules feature allows agents to filter contacts based on price,
time of day, geography and home type, and personally respond or forward to
an agent with that specialty.
oAgent-Branded Drip Emails provide a useful and informative way to stay in
touch by automatically "dripping" emails to contacts on a scheduled basis.
Agents can schedule custom IDX saved search and market report email drip
oPersonalized Recommendations give agents tips based on their usage of
Agent Hub. For example, if an agent hasn't set a drip email, they will see
a suggestion in their Dashboard.
The CRM platform also automatically saves the contacts agents receive through
Zillow and allows agents to make individual notes and star high-priority
contacts for easy follow-up.
Real estate agents who have set up a free Zillow profile or are a Zillow
Premier Agent will find their important data pre-populated into Agent Hub
automatically for their exclusive use. In addition to the CRM platform, Agent
Hub offers agents:
oAn analytics dashboard to monitor their listing and agent profile metrics,
and reviews status.
oImproved access to Zillow Academy classes on marketing, social media,
agent tools and more.
oAccess to exclusive industry news and insight.
"Agent Hub has proven extremely helpful to agents with three-quarters of
Zillow Premier Agents utilizing the CRM tools each month, which is
extraordinary usage. Our goal has always been to continue to add new tools and
services to help Zillow Premier Agents convert more of these contacts to
active customers. Contact forwarding and drip emails are the latest examples
of how we are listening to agents and helping them grow and manage their
businesses," said Greg Schwartz, chief revenue officer at Zillow.
