i, brock wooden, love this app more than anything in the whole world. it is not only apart of my everyday routine, it’s apart of my heart.
after showering you get dressed, get into bed & put on a movie. when suddenly you get struck with a ravenous urge to open up the zillow app…this feeling happens everyday. & while i too, am astounded on how this app had the ability to conjure up enough power to have such a chokehold on me that it started to affect? effect? (i’ll never understand which one to put) my daily routine, there is truly nothing more special than looking at houses you cannot afford. looking up multimillion dollar homes in a place where i do not reside, such as calabasas california, truly warms my heart to its very core.
allow me to walk you all through my nightly routine of being on zillow. the second my finger presses the app, i become a different person. after typing in my desired location(s) for the night & pressing “search”, my eyes instantly go to the north most western part on the map, allowing my thumb to quickly follow. i notice the first house i click on is only 2,000 square feet. NEXT. the second house only has 2 bathrooms? think again, NEXT. the third house doesn’t have a pool? who do you think i am? NEXT. it’s not until my eyes are graced with the beauty of a $15,000,000 home, that has 12 rooms and 9 bathrooms, when my heart starts to truly race. from seeing a shower the size of my current bedroom, to, two waterfall-white marble islands in the kitchen, i become speechless. knowing that someone, somewhere, somehow, has the ability to live in such a beautiful home, fills me with so much envy that it’s impossible to describe, but also happiness. once the head rush begins to slow down & the number of pictures gets in the single digits, i know it’s time to move on to bigger & better things. the fifth house is only $12,000,000? NEXT. the 6th house doesn’t have an infinity pool? NEXT. nevertheless, zillow throws me for another loop & presents a $25,000,000 home that has a 10 car garage & an indoor basketball court. my heart starts racing & my fingers begin to rapidly tap through the photos of this newly constructed 22,000 square foot home. this process happens every night until my fix of zillow has been satisfied. that being said, as you can tell, the person i become when on this app is not someone that i enjoy being. but, like i said, this app is apart of my heart, meaning i have to accept the person it turns me into.
download the app.
sincerely your biggest fan,
Once you sign up, they will not stop contacting you! You can delete all your notifications in the app, delete all save houses, and delete all your searches, but they will continue to send you homes. Throw in that their searches do not return accurate results.
In searching for new homes getting notified of new listings from Zillow on days the homes are actually showing as sold. Zillow continues to be flawed for Zestimates of new neighborhoods and greatly under valuing homes purchased early in the development. Additionally how can all other homes increase yet only one or two decrease in value over the same period. Same builder same model, yet wildly different Zestimates on the same street now sometimes $100k. Additionally after homes sell gross increases in Zestimates seeming to ignore the last sold values.
Me and my husband bought a house few days ago. We have been searching on and off for about 4 years. It was a long time. We had Sandy Smith as our agent, from your company and she was excellent. We kept viewing properties using Sandy for a some time. She was patient, calm , professional and always kept in touch to help us find our dream home. We are very happy with Sandy and we will recommend her to anyone I know searching for a home. We couldn’t ask for a better agent. If you ever looking for a home and don’t know where to start , or what location to focus , I think she would help you. We can’t thank enough Sandy. She does her job perfectly and she is very knowledgeable.
Great experience. Thank you Sandy.
How do you see messages in the app? Why can’t you handle multiple logins/users with the messaging in the app? It seems like the app is just for home buyers/sellers. The app and website are just two completely different products and the app is woefully inadequate. I think the web team probably does the “do you want to open this in the app or browser” to accentuate how good of a job they are doing compared to your app team. Congrats you’ve built an app that you should embarrass you! Now please make it better or at lease usable, people gotta get homes
Zillow will not publish my honest review of a real estate agent.
I provided the full text conversation with time stamps. And Zillow sends me an email stating that it doesn’t follow community guidelines.
I cannot imagine a more honest review I could provide other than a voice recording of a conversation.
I was wondering why most agents have such high ratings… and it’s probably due to community guidelines not allowing people to review honestly.
My property was claimed and listed for sale by a scam artist. It only takes a few clicks to take over anyone’s property. A poor old couple trying to buy land to make their dream home had $18,000 stolen from them. It took nearly two weeks for Zillow to take down the listing even though I reported it the day it was falsely listed. I hope Zillow is aware of the lives they are ruining by having such lax security measures and poor customer service.
When I were there at the house, the house owner said that she’ll send a lease to my email, but I had to do a background check first. So we did in on the Zillow app and then she never responded. Until a week later she said she’s considering a number of interested applicants, tell me to investigate other options. She’s wasting my time and wasting my money doing the background check on the app and there’s not much available house on the app!
The app overall is great. But I struggle to know if I applied to view the rental properties I liked. The only thing it showed is a heart icon and faded image of the property. And you can achieve that by clicking into the property and liked it.
I’d like some sort of affirmation to know if I’ve applied for viewing, and applied to rent. Either in emails or somewhere in the app. Preferably somewhere quick and I can see on a glance. Thanks!
Whenever I receive a notification/message from a prospective landlord, I click the link and it leads me to the app. But you can’t see messages there. So i log into the Zillow browser, but when you click the message in the browser to read/respond, it takes me back to the app. So now i have to delete the app to read the message. Making the app pointless aside from its connivence factor, but it’s not convenient. Makes no sense.
I met Ivan Acosta at a open house , his honest and sincere approach appealed us and we instantly signed a contract and since then no looking back .
It was really quick and fast and a very open mindset , in fact the whole team of Beer Realty is awesome , dedicated and dynamic .
I would definitely rank them 10 for all the efforts and dedication in which Ivan has helped me .
Thank You Ivan . you have so much potentials !
