“Over the past ten years, ZipRealty has succeeded by capitalizing on new technologies and evolving to take advantage of changing market conditions. Our move today to the independent contractor model in California is another bold step forward, and one that we believe will build on our strengths within ZipRealty’s largest market area.” said Patrick Lashinsky, President and CEO of ZipRealty. “By combining ZipRealty’s exceptional commitment to outstanding customer service, our industry-leading technology and unmatched marketing expertise with the flexibility afforded by the independent contractor model, we believe that we can offer a best-of-both-worlds proposition for agents and the Company, and ultimately for our customers as well.”

ZipRealty’s California agents will continue to have access to the Company’s proprietary technology, marketing support, and training and brokerage resources. ZipRealty’s independent contractor agents will be free to develop their own work styles and will have access to an expanding array of compensation alternatives, all of which revolve around the ZipRealty’s differentiated value proposition. ZipRealty will continue to offer its unique customer satisfaction guarantee and to reward its agents for delivering outstanding client service.

“Moving to an independent contractor structure in California will not take our focus off of delivering great home buying and selling experiences to our customers, and we plan to use our technology to bring innovation to the independent contractor model,” Lashinsky said. “From a financial standpoint, this shift is expected to provide greater opportunity for our agents, while also improving ZipRealty’s ability to drive growth and innovation long term.”
