"We are incredibly excited to be able to take advantage of the new branding opportunities Zillow is offering our brokerage. Now, we have the security of a direct feed to Zillow so our listings will always be timely and accurate, and our brokerage will have excellent representation on all our listings.

It's a great opportunity for our agents and sellers alike."
