On Zillow we bring attention to those who contribute the most by awarding Zillow All-Star and Zillow Local Expert badges.
These badges appear on profile pages and can also be posted on your other marketing efforts (such as on your Active Rain blog). People with these badges are also given better placement in the Professional Directory, with the idea that those that are the most helpful should get the best exposure on the site.
All this on top of the obvious benefits that come with contributing more, which is getting to connect with more potential clients.
What is a Zillow Local Expert?
Local Experts are active Zillow users who share their real estate knowledge and help others by contributing high-quality content at a local level.
So make sure your listings are online, upload neighborhood photos and most of all, participate in Zillow Advice- and earn your designations as being a helpful, knowledgable professional on Zillow.
