Zillow Group planned to prohibit agents from manually posting listings on May 1, a new policy it announced in late February. And because Harris’s MLS was not sending listings to Zillow Group, he thought his brokerage, Seattle-based Sea-Town Real Estate, might lose the ability to market properties on Zillow Group sites — a scary scenario for many agents and brokers.
