What's happening behind the curtain of Zillow Instant Offers

Moments, little-known tidbits and stakeholders that populate the shadows of this monumental announcement

Zillow’s announcement about its Instant Offers program was a big deal. I think it will be remembered as a moment in real estate history when the industry veered in a new direction, the catalyst for a shift in focus and new perspective around how people sell their homes, rather than something scary. During the week, some funny and interesting stuff (gossip, in some cases) happened behind the curtain.
