About the teamToday, Zillow is where people dream about their next chapter. We’re working on turning those dreams into a reality where you can find a home, a loan, a rental, or a renter, and so much more, all in one place. Can you imagine your next move being a delight, from first thought to move in date? Our team can!
We are making new promises, changing what we deliver. We’re grounding ourselves in customer insights and imagining how we can design home transactions, and moving experiences that match the dream.
We believe finding, financing, buying, selling, renting, or renovating your home should be something you can do in a trusted marketplace, and simple enough to complete transactions – on your phone!
The Rentals team is central to accomplishing this mission, and delivering the Zillow promise to our customers. We operate as the engine that facilitates the successful connection between renters who shop Zillow for homes and the property owners and property manager who can provide that assistance. Our team is composed of service professionals that operate in a strong collaborative environment, achieve individual and team goals and provide the best experience for both our consumers and partners.
