I am excited and honored to announce the creation of the Zillow Broker Advisory Board which is made up of 10 influential leaders in the real estate industry. Their role on the board will be to provide us counsel on existing Zillow services, while also helping to evaluate ideas for future Zillow products and services.
As we continue to work to develop meaningful partnerships with real estate professionals, we will rely heavily on the feedback of these people on the best ways to do this.
“In selecting our Broker Advisory Board, we wanted a range of different types of companies represented- both franchise and independent, large and small, national and regional,” said Jorrit Van der Meulen, Zillow’s VP of Partner Relations. “We asked people whom we know to be leaders in the industry, and we believe this Board will help us in planning and building our products and services in a way that serves the real estate community to our full potential.”
