Rich BartonIf you’re looking to buy or sell your home, where do you start? What’s the right price? Traditionally, the consumer had unequal access to information, making the real estate market imperfect. Zillow is an online real estate service that helps consumers make more informed decisions by providing them with free information and tools. Jessica speaks with the co-founder of Zillow, Rich Barton.

Prior to starting Zillow, Rich started Expedia, the largest online travel service. Expedia started as a project inside of Microsoft before it was spun out and sold for roughly $4.5 Billion. Rich tells us how he helped to transform the travel industry, and now the real estate sector, from scratch.
