Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman compared rival Zillow to Godzilla Wednesday morning and added: “I’m scared of them.”

“Of course we’re scared of them,” Kelman said to a packed room inside the Aria Resort & Casino at Inman Connect Las Vegas. “They have a ton of money and a huge audience and they’re really well-run.”

But, he added with a laugh, that isn’t actually a knock against Zillow.

“Calling them Godzilla, that’s a compliment,” Kelman said. “They’re a good company. They’re well-run. Rich [Barton] is a good CEO.”

The comments came during a wide-ranging interview about Redfin’s products and future. During the interview, Kelman also said that he is excited about Redfin Now, the company’s iBuying service, but expects its ultimate potential to be limited.
