Create Your Own Fantasy Real Estate League

Draft Your "Key-Players" and Create Your Own Fantasy Real Estate League

As real estate professionals, we work with hundreds, if not thousands, of others in the industry. You swap business cards, do business together (then misplace business cards) and then try to dig them up later to share with your clients. But, what if you could give a virtual high-five to the people you've worked with, trust, and want share that are on your team?

Starting today, you can now create your own fantasy real estate league by creating a Top Ten Pros list that will appear on your Zillow profile page. Give kudos and props to those affiliations and relationships you've worked so hard to create and build.



Top Ten Pros allows real estate professionals to give consumers an inside look at their top picks; whether it’s an agent recommending a mover, a mortgage lender recommending a roofer, or an inspector recommending an agent. The list is not meant to be a Rolodex of everyone you’ve worked with, but a list of the people you would hire for yourself and recommend to clients. It's a great way to support and share subtle referrals with those you trust and do business with.

There’s no office pool, but the winners are you and your clients. Go make your picks now at zillow.com

Quick How-To:

a) To create your Top Ten Pros list, sign in to your zillow profile zillow.com, b) then go to your profile page, click on “List of Top 10 Pros” in the left hand navigation. c) From this page you can see which lists you are on and manage your own. Go team GO!

Hey Ellie - that's awesome.  I actually sent one to Bob Stewart to add him on my list... so for my next post it will be secrets and tips to get "your team" to accept your invite!!  lol~  Just kidding, I know Bob has been real busy lately.  :-)

Brad, what a great idea. I've been needing to work on my Zillow profile and everything anyway. This should get me going on it. Hope all is well with you!

Hey Connie - things are good, nice to see you again and I hope things are going well for you. 

This will be a huge enhancement to Z profiles and I think the benefits and results of this new feature will be pretty obvious to those who take advantage of it.  :-)

Brad, do the pros have to have a zillow account? I have to be careful not to steop on toes- I have few "exclusive" professional referral relationships, i.e., lawyers, loan fficers, kazoo repairmen.

Hey Brad ~ I invited 5 over the weekend. I have not had time to see of any of them accepted my invite! (They would be crazy not to lol). Not sure if Zillow sends email notifications when someone accepts, if so, then no has accepted!=(...

J. Phillip - I know the Agent pros sending the invite need to have an account but not the pros being invited, at least I don't think so but this is brand new so let me confrim that.  I'll find out and confirm in the morning.

Hey Terrie - there's a spot on the page where you can manage that and follow up if needed. It's on the right hand side of this page if you're logged into your zillow profile: http://www.zillow.com/myzillow/Top10.htm

Good post Brad.

I'm really excited about this new feature. Glad we shipped it, and here's hoping that it takes off!

I dont use Zillow quite enough, but I like the idea of having a favorites section for people who read my comments/answers.

John - hope to see you use the site more, adding associates and affiliates you work with is a win-win no doubt!!  :-)
