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

Zillow Text Message Alerts Are Live

We know how important it is to respond quickly to contacts that are using mobile devices to search and shop for homes and loans. Now you can take your multi-tasking to the next level. Starting today, you'll receive text message alerts for every email contact/lead that comes your way!

What You Need To Do:
To make sure that text alerts can be sent to you, add your mobile phone number to your Zillow Profile.  *If your mobile number is already there, you're ready and good to go. Check your profile now.

Not Interested in Text Alerts? Are you nuts? Just kidding. You can deactivate the feature in your Zillow Profile.

Changes to your tracked Zillow phone number:
Over the next few weeks, your Premier Agent toll-free number will be changed to a new local number. You do not have to do anything for this change to take effect and you can continue tracking contacts in your profile as you do today.

Now you can connect with your contacts on the go!
» Add your mobile number to your Zillow Profile
* Individual text message fees vary. Check your mobile plan.

OMG, I love these.  This is the coolest.  I think it will increase my response time.  Sometimes emails are slow and text alerts are immediate.

Brad - That's awesome (I think :0).  While I find Zilllow's data a little skewed for some properties, there are plenty of consumers who are using the site.  Thank you for sharing!!!!

Since 30% of the Weekend traffic to Zillow comes from mobile devices, this will be a great new feature.  Response times will be an even more important ingredient than ever for contact conversion success.  I'm really excited they launched this new feature, and I sense more great things and features on the horizon.

So many emails get deleted without ever being opened or responded to, but it's rare (if ever) that a text message gets deleted without review or a response. So what does that tell you?  Just sayin...   (BIG SMILE)  :-))
