Zillow Launches Zillow® Academy - My First Big Announcement for NARdiGras, New Orleans

Today I get the privilege to announce and unveil one of the projects I've been working on at Zillow.  It's the launch of our new Zillow® Academy.  Our new "Z" Campus will help to "Make a Difference" in our business and in yours. Zillow's new Real Estate Academy is your one stop campus for ALL your Real Estate Training and Support needs.

there are so many webinars, but there is only one Brad (used to be Active Brad), and it makes any offer coming from you absolutely irresistable.

Thanks, will check it

Looks like you are up and running right away over there at Zillowland. I'll see if there is something interesting for me.

Saving this calendar - good stuff!  So sorry I didn't get to meet you "IRL" at NAR - the 2 times I saw you, you were swamped with adoring fans!

Posted by Patty Keller, AnotherMe - 770-414-9393 - RE Virtual Assistant (AnotherME, LLC) almost 10 years ago

Cool Brad, sounds great. I'll be in touch after next Tuesday. Have some Bourbon for me!

Posted by Eileen Hsu, LICENSED REAL ESTATE SALESPERSON (Douglas Elliman Real Estate) almost 10 years ago

I think this is a great idea as there is no one person that can keep up and find all the new technology that is appearing everyday.

Posted by Respect Realty LLC, Brokers - Oregon / SW Washington Real Estate (Respect Realty LLC) almost 10 years ago

Patty - are you sure those were adoring fans and not just people I owed money???  rofl~

Eileen - I'm back now.

Todd - "keeping up" is no longer an easy task in the "New World" of the "Wide Web!"  :-))

I've ALWAYS gotten so much from your past webinars, Brad. Will have to explore these Zillow offerings.

Posted by Irene Kennedy Realtor® in Northwestern NJ (Weichert) almost 10 years ago

Brad, I signed up for the Premier Agent Webinar - hope that is okay even if I am not a Zillow Premier Agent -- I'm assuming it okay or it would not have let me register??  I'm looking forward to it.  I have enjoyed reading many of your AR blogs.  I've only been involved with AR for a couple of months and am not sure I am using all it has to offer - it's all a bit overwhelming -- but I'm working on it!  And am also interested in finding out more about Zillow.

Thanks Irene - you're always welcomed to join us anytime.

Hi Joyce - we're happy to have you join us anytime as well. We'll be going over some of the details of what the Premier Agent program entails and some of the key features and benefits of why many agents have signed up.  Looking forward to seeing you on campus.  :-)

If you teaching it.. I'll be there... thanks for the information...

Awww, thanks Donna - still working out some small tech glitches, but everything is looking very promising and we have some great classes setup with a lot of sign-ups already.  Looking forward to seeing you on "campus!" 

Thanks again for the sweet comment.  :-))
