Today’s Seattle Times has a front page real estate article entitled “Agents Feel Squeezed by New Sites”.

Like other blogs have noted, hits go up when we write about Zillow, so I guess in order to keep my traffic up, I’ll have to do that again.
Zillow is a new real estate portal, now making money by selling advertising. What’s “threatening” about that? Good luck to them.
Redfin is an older real estate brokerage founded in October 2002. The company launched its real estate search site in October 2004 and they raised its first venture capital in September 2005.
