It goes back to our goal of providing the most value we possibly can to the MLS and its members."
"We are very excited to have Zillow statistics in ListTrac," said Lauren Hansen, IRES chief executive officer. "This gives our brokers the ability to see listing activity from various websites in one report. ListTrac also provides a weekly report for sellers so they are kept up to date with online marketing efforts. With Zillow's large consumer audience, we felt it was important to include their statistics in ListTrac and are pleased with the partnership."
