Latest Zip press release shows the true state of the spin game
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/mother-son-real-estate-team-195102172.html If these people have been licensed agents since June and August of 2012 and just now closing their first transactions? It leads me to believe the Zip platform isn't anything special. Your average real estate agent should close a few transactions a year without any "Zip Platform", so you have to wonder what is the benefit to real estate agents with this platform? What's even more concerning is Zip is out there issuing press releases on this junk.
"These people" are one 18 year old working under his mother and a 22 year old who is perhaps just out of college and/or starting a new career. Neither are "your average real estate agent". They are newbies who want to learn the business.
Either way, Zip shouldn't be issuing news releases of such. I mean seriously, one transaction in about 9 months time? That's poverty levels. Now if they had agents busting off 100 sales a month off their stuff, maybe it would be newsworthly. I think it shows their platform isn't all that great.
