The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

The BEST Places To Work

ActiveRain is one of the funnest places to work!

See what I mean?

Back in the day, when I was the full-time community manager here working with Bob Stewart and Jonathan Washburn, I had more fun than I think one person should be allowed to have. Working with the staff and AR members was an incredible and fun experience. Everyday was something new and usually unexpected.

I'm sure it's still the same... :-)

A few years later, some major changes took place.  I'll never forget the advice Jon gave me "that day" when my time on AR was coming to pass. He said, "You should really try to go and work for Zillow!"  So I did!  Thanks Jon for that great bit of foresight and advice.

You already know that Zillow is a great place to work, (if it wasn't, I wouldn't still be here 2 years later) but I am also really excited and thrilled to share that others think so too.  Zillow was just named No.14 on Seattle Met magazine’s Best Places to Work 2013 list.  (We're not giving up until we're number one!)

We couldn’t have achieved this honor without each and every employee – in every office - who truly make Zillow a great place to work.  Oh yeah, and I'd be totally remiss if I forgot to mention that we’re hiring too!

Seattle’s New Workplaces
… see what other employees have to say.
So you see, I have been blessed to work with two great companies from "A" to "Z" and one of the best perks at both companies is getting to work with and be surrounded by great friends and some of the smartest and funnest people I have ever known in the real estate space.
Thanks Jon for your suggestion and advice, thanks Zillow management and staff for making our company one of the BEST places to work, and thank you ActiveRain friends and family for your continued, love, friendship, and support.  May 2013 be the best year ever for the real estate industry.
Happy Holidays To You All~
