About the teamWe are on a mission to give consumers certainty and control when selling their home. In the Zillow Offers product, Zillow buys homes directly from interested homeowners, thereby sparing them the tremendous stress and effort of selling. Instead, we take that upon ourselves by quickly preparing these homes for the market and re-selling them. This is a key initiative at Zillow as we aim to define the future of real estate.
We are building a technology platform that enables scaled and distributed real estate operations across the country. The platform will harness the power of local inspectors, construction managers, contractors, market experts, real estate agents, and more to deliver an outstanding transaction experience to sellers and buyers.
We pride ourselves on our culture, and our unwavering focus on our mission. We celebrate the successes of our people, and embrace our failures in order to learn from them. We believe that creativity and innovation is the key to success. We will stop at nothing to accomplish our goals, and you will help us get there!
