"We are pleased to welcome Northwood Realty back as a Zillow Group partner," said Errol Samuelson, Zillow Group chief industry development officer. "We worked very closely with Northwood's leadership team to build a partnership that meets their needs. Now, their agents and their clients receive all the benefits of a direct listings feed to Zillow and Trulia, including increased speed and accuracy across Zillow Group sites."
"Our agents and home sellers can again take advantage of the high visibility that Zillow Group offers," noted Tom Hosack, president and CEO of Northwood Realty Services.

Zillow Pro for Brokers continues to grow rapidly. Currently the program has more than 13,000 broker partners around the country. Zillow Pro for Brokers is a five-point program that improves listings accuracy, provides better reporting, includes a powerful contact follow-up system and increases the visibility of listing agents for participating brokerages. In addition to retaining ownership of their data, brokerages' agents will always be displayed first next to their listings, as well as have branding, including their company logo, included with the listings.
