Zillow Group October 2019 IR Roundup

In October, Zillow Group hosted its first annual industry conference, Unlock. The conference brought together more than 1,500 Zillow Group partners across the Premier Agent, Rentals and New Construction businesses for two days of sessions designed to strengthen engagement. Rich Barton, Zillow Group co-founder and CEO, held a fireside chat with Brad Inman of Inman News, where they discussed how technology will transform the real estate experience. You can view a highlight reel of the conference on the Zillow Group corporate blog.  

Other updates: Zillow Offers continues to expand to new markets, launching in two new markets in October — Sacramento and Tampa Bay. The program is now live in 21 markets total.
