StreetEasy Vs. Douglas Elliman: The Two Come to a Mutual Agreement

Conflict has peaked between two NYC heavy-hitters. StreetEasy, the NYC arm of Zillow, is cutting manual listing input capabilities for brokerage giant Douglas Elliman’s agents while accepting the brokerage’s sales and rental fees. 

A memo sent to the agents stated:

“As of today, the listings feed between Douglas Elliman and StreetEasy is live and you will no longer have to perform any manual entry for the site.”

StreetEasy claims that the listings will continue ‘uninterrupted,’ though experts have reported that manual entry slashes data error

This isn’t the first time the two have clashed. StreetEasy had contacted Elliman NYC agents and landlords last month with a threat to pull rental listings entirely unless Douglas Elliman resolved an issue brought up between Elliman and StreetEasy, which has not been disclosed to the public. 

StreetEasy, which relied heavily on the manual feeds model, received criticism from the market for halting that specific service- Elliman being among the loudest.
