When you work with an agent on Zillow, you have a partner dedicated to guiding you through the twists and turns of buying a home where you and your family will thrive. Your agent’s help is just a tap away, as you’ll be able to send them questions, share concerns and request home tours from any for-sale listing you view on our site.
This communication will help your agent learn what kind of homes catch your eye — and even suggest homes you may not have found on your own.
To make sure your agent is a good match, we’ll follow up with you to see how your experience is going. You’ll also have a chance to provide an anonymous rating, along with additional feedback. If at any point you’d no longer like to work with your agent, you can easily remove them on our site and choose another agent.
And believe it or not, there’s no commitment required to work with an agent, and there’s no cost to you.

Why should I work with a real estate agent?
Real estate agents can do a lot more for you than schedule private home tours. They’ll empower you with the knowledge you need to find a home that fulfills your dreams. And they’ll be the person you turn to for support during the anxious moments. With an agent, you’ll get:
- Expertise about the local market
- Referrals to trusted lenders, inspectors and contractors
- An offer that really stands out
These are only a few reasons to have an agent on your side. Our guide, Understand the Role of the Real Estate Agent, can answer many questions you may have.
