Real estate marketplace Zillow has announced that it has cemented agreements with over 250 Canadian brokerages and franchisors to display housing listings on its online platform and mobile app.
Among the platform’s latest brokerage partners include iPro Realty, RE/MAX Condo Plus, and Living Realty.
The announcement came in the wake of Zillow’s updated metrics, which indicated that the provider saw a 32% year-to-date increase in its monthly Canadian unique users.
“Zillow has long been a go-to real estate resource in the U.S. for consumers and our partners in industry, and it’s exciting to see more than 250 Canadian partners using Zillow,” Zillow Group chief industry development officer Errol Samuelson stated.
“Canadian listings on Zillow have the benefit of our audience of 195 million unique monthly users which includes a quickly growing Canadian audience.”
At present, Zillow.com has more than 4,500 Canadian agents with profiles on the platform.
“iPro Realty has more than 1,700 agents who are constantly looking for ways to promote themselves, their listings and provide their clients with great service,” iPro Realty CEO Rui Alves said. “With our listings now visible to Zillow’s large, international audience of home shoppers, our clients will receive the advantage of their homes receiving even greater exposure.”
“We pride ourselves at being at the cutting edge of real estate,” RE/MAX Condo Plus broker of record and owner Jamie Johnston added. “We think our association with Zillow is another opportunity for our agents to demonstrate their value to the public.”
“We feel with the experience they have had in the U.S., they will be able to deliver to buyers and sellers in Canada the type of technology clients in the U.S. have enjoyed for years,” Living Realty broker of record Kelvin Wong said.
