Realty Executives International announced today that it has expanded its partnership with Zillow, Inc., the leading real estate and rental marketplace in the U.S., to include listings from their Canadian franchises. The Canadian listings from Realty Executives will drive unprecedented global exposure to Canadian homes for sale to the millions of home shoppers that visit Zillow every month.
“Realty Executives has always valued providing an optimal real estate search experience on our proprietary sites, therefore partnering with Zillow, who shares the same consumer-centric perspective, was a natural fit,” said David Tedesco, CEO of Realty Executives International. “Our partnership with Zillow will change the way consumers search for properties in Canada, making it easier for Canadian consumers to search for homes in the U.S. and Canada, as well as U.S. buyers to search for properties in Canada.”
Listings on Zillow® from Realty Executives International can include a description of the property, photos and the listing agent’s contact information so home buyers can easily find more information about the home or connect with a local real estate agent for next steps. Listings can also include the company logo, description and a short video.
“In the U.S., our industry partners have seen Zillow become a key part of driving maximum exposure for their listings,” said Errol Samuelson, Zillow Group Chief Industry Development Officer. “It’s exciting to us that Realty Executives International will be able to extend this benefit to their Canadian teams.”
