Agents can extend this relationship by confirming the relationship via the Premier Agent App.

Does My Agent work with all Premier Agent leads?
A My Agent connection is established only when the agent picks up the live transfer from our Premier Agent Team for email leads (a lead who submitted an inquiry on Zillow or Trulia. My Agent does not currently support phone leads or leads from 3rd party sources.
Is my online connection with my client permanent?
No. Your client has the ability to decline or end the online connection anytime they want.
Is this online connection a contract?
No. The online connection is a way for you to engage your client in the home buying process and connect online on Zillow or Trulia, like you might friend someone on Facebook or add a connection on LinkedIn. It is non-binding and can be ended at any time.
My lead came in from Zillow/Trulia. When my client confirms our connection, where will I show up online?
You will appear as the sole buyer’s agent on for-sale listings on Zillow or Trulia, depending on which site the lead originated from.
Will I appear on all for-sale listings, or only where I advertise?
When you connect automatically via our Premier Agent Team or your client has confirmed your connection, you will appear to them on for-sale listings for every county where you: (a) advertise or (b) have added a ZIP code as an area where you provide service. You can add or remove service areas at any time by editing your Zillow agent profile.
Can I connect with clients who did not submit on Zillow or Trulia?
Not at this time. Invitation functionality is limited exclusively to leads submitted on Zillow or Trulia.
Will I appear on listings or will my team member?
The agent who confirms the connection will appear as the only buyer’s agent on for-sale listings. (The agent who speaks to or meets with the client should send the confirmation message.)
What happens when I re-assign a lead?
Reassigning the lead to a different team member moves the online relationship to the new team member. If you have a confirmed online connection with a client and then reassign that client to a team member, you will transfer that online connection to your team member.
Can my ISA do this for my team?
