Zillow, the leading real estate and rental marketplace in the U.S., announced today that RE/MAX Ultimate Realty Inc., one of Canada’s largest RE/MAX brokerages in Central Toronto will send a direct listing feed to Zillow.com. It was announced previously that Zillow reached an agreement with EXIT Realty International to do the same.

Zillow now has commitments from four prominent Canadian companies representing more than 30,000 for-sale listings in Canada, which will soon be displayed on Zillow.com to the millions of home shoppers who use the site every month.

“RE/MAX Ultimate Realty is a forward-thinking, well-respected brokerage, and we are thrilled to drive exposure for their listings to Zillow’s massive audience of home shoppers,” says Errol Samuelson, Zillow Group Chief Industry Development Officer. “Zillow is committed to connecting real estate professionals with consumers and we’re tremendously encouraged by the excitement we’re hearing around our efforts in Canada – both from consumers and our industry partners. We continue to talk with and sign new Canadian listing agreements every week, and we look forward to displaying our partners’ listings on Zillow.com soon.”

“We have a reputation of always staying focused on embracing technology that will assist our agent business partners and clients,” says Tim Syrianos, Broker of Record and Owner of RE/MAX Ultimate Realty Inc. “We are confident that partnering with Zillow will be an asset to our team and will only enhance the client experience.”

All Canadian listings on Zillow will include a description and photos of the property, and will prominently feature the listing agent – with contact information – as well as a link to the brokerage or franchise website.

Home shoppers from around the world come to Zillow every day to start their home search. Zillow Group, Zillow’s parent company, operates the largest real estate network on the web, with more than 186 million average monthly users.
