What Are the Guidelines of Writing Reviews on Zillow?
Zillow has guidelines that you are required to follow when writing reviews for the agents. Any potential client or an existing client for a real estate agent can write a review on Zillow. Former clients of an agent also have the right to write reviews for those agents. Zillow prohibits the use of inappropriate language when writing reviews. You are not allowed to write reviews that are out of the context of the services provided by an agent on Zillow's website.
Offensive comments or spam messages are also not allowed when writing reviews. To ensure that these you follow these guidelines, a team from Zillow moderates all the reviews before they publish them on the Zillow website. Zillow also restricts reports coming from an agent's family member or colleague (even if they were clients) because they might be biased.
Zillow will also withhold the submission of reviews of an agent if one user has submitted an unusually high number of reviews of an agent or if the agent has received suspicious numbers of reviews. Reviews from people who are using invalid email addresses are not valid.
Any person who enables the writing of invalid reviews or violates any Zillow guidelines can have their accounts disabled or have their advertising programs terminated. Agents who have a Zillow account can get notified when they get a review and publicly respond to the review.
Agents with Zillow profiles also have a right to refuse being reviewed on Zillow by deleting their profiles, but this will limit clients from recommending you or referring other clients to you.
