The leading real estate and rental marketplace in the US, Zillow has recently announced that the agreement between Zillow and Realty Executives International will be added on to include Canadian listings. As part of the expanding marketing agreement, Realty Executives International will post its listings from its Canadian franchises on both the mobile app and Zillow website.
Zillow receives more than 100 million visits from non-US audiences a year, with a large share from Canada, and Realty Executives International's listings will soon benefit from that global exposure.
Listings from several leading Canadian brokerages will soon be live on Zillow. Each Canadian listing will include a description and photos of the property, and will prominently feature the listing agent – with contact information – as well as a link to the brokerage or franchise website.
"In the US, our industry partners have seen Zillow become a key part of driving maximum exposure for their listings," said Errol Samuelson, Zillow Group Chief Industry Development Officer. "It's exciting to us that Realty Executives International will be able to extend this benefit to their Canadian teams."
"Realty Executives has always valued providing an optimal real estate search experience on our proprietary sites; therefore, partnering with Zillow, who shares the same consumer-centric perspective, was a natural fit," said David Tedesco, CEO of Realty Executives International. "Our partnership with Zillow will change the way consumers search for properties in Canada, making it easier for Canadian consumers to search for homes in the US and Canada, as well as US buyers to search for properties in Canada."
