Tom Ferry Partners with Zillow

Zillow Partners With Tom Ferry on Product Development

Today we announced in a press release, our new partnership with the very well known real estate coach, (and a personal friend of mine) Tom Ferry, who will be joining us as a consultant. Zillow develops numerous products that help real estate professionals grow their business and online presence, and Tom will be consulting on product development.  I'm very excited to have Tom on board.

"I've helped thousands of real estate professionals learn how to be more productive, eliminate stress and have more fun in their business, with technology as a key factor. So teaming up with Zillow was a no-brainer," says Tom. "There's no better way to impact how real estate agents leverage online marketing than working with the top online real estate technology company in the business."

"As one of the most respected people in real estate, we are thrilled to have Tom's decades of experience as we develop and refine products and services for real estate professionals," said Greg Schwartz, Zillow's chief revenue officer. "For years, Zillow has provided the tools while Tom provided the training, so it made sense to join forces to give agents the best from both worlds."

Please take a moment to congratulate Tom and stay tuned as the future path of product development gets carved out by Tom and our product development team. Lots of great things happening at Zillow right now, and more great stuff up ahead.  Visit Tom's profile on ActiveRain or on his site at



"Learn More. Get More. Do More. Be More."

Zillow seems to work for me, I can't believe how many leads a few zip codes create. Anybody that is slow, shouldn't be.

Hi Brad,

That was a catch!

You are clearly providing Zillow with some innovative ideas and good connections.

I know most of my friends here know this, but for those who don't, Tom is not only one of the top real estate coaches and speakers in the country, he's also one of The New York Times bestselling authors. 

He recently published Life! By Design, a book I have personally read and thouroughly enjoyed!  I just added Tom's video to this announcement above, it's pretty clear he's "ALMOST" as excited as I am.  :-))

Brad, Zillow is on top of their game! Wow, another great leap for Zillow to connect with Tom. Since you joined Zillow, things just haven't been business as usual, just sayin... :)

Sharon - I wouldn't be lying if I said "I wish I could take all the credit!" 

Our company is making some great strategic moves and is doing some fabulous things to continue helping agents and consumers.  This is just another example of things done and things to come that will affirm this. 

Thanks for commenting, I know Tom is busy right now but appreciates all the thanks and kudos from everyone.

Thanks Morgan -

We're very excited to have Tom on board, he's already making an impact and difference in the industry, just imagine what he'll be able to do with a company like Zillow behind him?  Pretty exciting for sure. 

BTW - The Phoenix Real Estate Guy, Jay Thompson, announced yesterday that he'll be joining us now full time as well.

It just keeps getting better and better...   :-)
