In Zillow's own words they tell you the following:The Zestimate® home
"Angela spent over an hour talking passionately about how she was going to market our home and all of the things that she does in addition to putting the home on the MLS. she was the only Realtor that I talked to that actually told me in detail what she was going to do other than put my home on the MLS and blah blah blah. I really liked the 4x more exposure on Trulia by featuring our home and the 7x more exposure on Zillow by doing the same thing. There were quite a few other things that I don't remember but she sold my home in six days with two offers and received more than list price. The entire process was very smooth and professional. Thanks Angela"
