"We are excited about our partnership with Douglas Elliman," said Spencer Rascoff, Zillow CEO. "Combining Douglas Elliman's listing inventory with our broad marketing capabilities and audience of nearly 82 million users brings many benefits not only to Douglas Elliman's agents, but also to home shoppers looking for property in Manhattan and in the other markets served by Douglas Elliman."
In addition to displaying as a featured listing on Zillow, all Douglas Elliman's listings will feature unique branding and the company's agents will get priority placement next to their listings, including a logo and link back to their website. The partnership will be live later this week.
