    Somebody has to ask … The money to pay the salaries for the 100 new hires is coming from … where? Another round of venture captial? Signing up more real estate professionals for “pro” accounts? Advertising? Sorry, Rudy, just being nosey. 🙂

    Cheryl’s got a good point . . . . are things really going THAT well? And isnt it weird that this happens just as we hear that Zip Realty is cutting back on everything?

    They are always trying to hit me up for a paid account. Nope…not happening. What does amaze me is the sheer amount of VC that is available to these companies and how long they can hunker down and – to my dismay – stay afloat. Do they really offer that much of value? No – they appear to be just an expensive middle man that adds very little to the equation and just wants to pick the agents pockets. If the public likes them so much – then let the public pay for them because I – and most every other agent I know – won’t share one thin dime with them or with Zillow.
