    Ok, say you say we should get off the Zillow teat and market our listings ourselves. Can you expound on that? Perhaps you have already covered this subject (I’m relatively new to your vlog). If that’s the case, please point me the the pertinent episodes. I’m relatively new to realty but I’d be hard-pressed to imagine how I could begin to compete with the eye-balls and feature-rich functionality of the Zillows, Trulias, and realtor.coms of the world.

  2. I think him and Clintin would work well togeather.

  3. I personally have always had a problem with our listings being automatically syndicated and then we have to pay to get a snapshot and a possible showing on our own listing on Zillow Trulia any of their web sites for that matter. They should pay us and we should be advertised on our own listings it's a total scam

    Feeding zillow & trulia is like injecting cancer cells.

  5. Great clip as always. I am a loyal follower.

    As long as agents continue to purchase leads from Zillow and others, things will continue status quo. Marketing our listings on our own is tough when the consumers are looking at these sites instead of contacting a Realtor first! You can tell I've been in the business a long time and believe in building my business instead of buying business on the back of someone elses hard work in obtaining that listing. That's my rant for today!

  8. I spend a fair amount of money to market myself and fetch a listing. I then spend on average $400 per listing to have pro pics and video shot after ice spent more money to personal stage and prep the property. Then of course there's the money I spend on NAR, CAR, local association and PAC And MLS dues. So Zillow, Truly and Redfin take MY pics and listing and advertise it on their sites with another agent that has paid $$ to be a featured agent. Yet as agents we are not allowed to advertise another agent / broker listings. What goes on here? I say stop. Stop charging agents dues and then selling our listing data to these theives!! Problem solved

  9. The end of being a realtor is coming

  10. Nancy Viejo says:

    Didn't this all start with letting the MLS go public? Realtor Associations opened the can of worms and then continued to let their info get pilfered.

  11. Mark Thompson Common sense agrees with you but the stats on who is going fsbo don't… less each year are going fsbo according to the profile of buyers and sellers. Why do you think this is?

  12. I love that you guys have been keeping us up to date on what is important to our industry for all these years….but would it be too much to ask that you keep your political options to yourself. I have been an avide subscriber for years and pass on most of your post to facebook and my 3000+ friends….Stay with the program please

    NAR first hosed its members in the mid 90's when they cut a deal to sell access to data produced by sweat and lost sleep of members working their butts off getting listings. More recently NAR turned a blind eye to "dual agency" to allow larger brokerages to double dip, allegedly with full
    disclosure but "wink wink" we know better. Last but not least, NAR paid the Butcher of Bengazi $250K to speak at the 2014 NAR convention. That was my last straw.

  14. Zillow is a fee collecting middleman that has errected a toll both on the Internet that separates clients from agents.

    Jay from Zillow Group here. Actually, LisaMarie, we don't "take" any listings, and we're not "theives". Your listings are posted with the authorization of your broker. If you don't want your listings on Zillow and Trulia, talk to your broker, they are the ones authorizing us to display them.
