How Zillow Sends a Barrage of Unwanted Calls Your Way

Discover what home buyers may not know about using Zillow for their house hunting.

discover what home buyers may not know about Zillow.

Every time you fill out a form or send in an inquiry on Zillow or or Trulia, you will be barraged by calls and emails from dozens of agents. There are hundreds of sites, more every day, all designed to capture your information and sell it to not one, but many different agents.

People wonder why they are getting so many calls and emails and then these potential buyers stop responding. The barrage of unwanted calls from the other sites makes it harder for us to get through when we respond to the inquiry you submitted on our website.

All of these Internet sites have decided that “real estate is a hot business” and they want a piece of it. I remember back in the day when I was a travel agent. This was before electronic ticketing. This was when you went to your local travel agent even to book an airline flight. Agents handled individual travel, large group travel, and charters. How many travel agents do you know today? I do know a few and the ones who survived are specialists.

Look for the Delaware Specialists

This is who we are—Specialists in people just like you and me. I call us Boomers & Beyond in Delaware or Active Adults. We are people who are making decisions about where and how we want to live now—it’s not about a job or a school system. It’s our time.

When you want information on any home for sale anywhere in Delaware, and you contact us on, you will be reaching me or one of my agents at Active Adults Realty. No One Else.

Be careful out there. Especially now when everyone is home and everyone is online house hunting, please understand where you are and who you are contacting. Just because the site lists homes, don’t assume they are all for sale or that you are even communicating with a real REALTOR®!
