How did you do in 2014? Execs at Zillow Group, the firm that houses portal giants Zillow and Trulia, did just fine, according to a regulatory document the firm filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission today.

Name, title 2014 Base salary (% increase over 2013 base salary) 2014 total compensation (salary, stock awards, bonuses, etc.)
Spencer Rascoff, CEO $512,553 (6%) $512,553

While Zillow Group CEO Spencer Rascoff was compensated a total of $512,553 by Zillow (the precursor to Zillow Group) in 2014 — the lowest of the five Zillow Group execs the filing covers — he made much more off of shares of Zillow stock that he sold.

For example, he made a quick $1.05 million in November after selling a few thousand Zillow shares.

With $6.4 million in salary and stock awards, Errol Samuelson was the highest-compensated employee in 2014. That won’t relieve any headaches from the prolonged and intriguing legal battle he and Zillow are facing from his former employer, realtor.com operator Move Inc., and the National Association of Realtors.
