I invest in the equities market daily. I would never own Z stock. Diminishing value.

I do not, I don't think their business model is that good, they have a few things to figure out before I'd invest.

There are many advisors that would suggest Zillow is great stock to buy but for some reason I'm going to pass

There is a suggestion in your question that the dark side and real estate professional have some symbiotic relationship.

As an investor in stocks, if one were interested in securing a spot in the ADVERTISING area, Google, Facebook and the darkside could prove appealing. 

I would suggest those of integrity to invest in enterprises whose existence is not based on the deception of masquerading as something real estate related when the reality is they exist for a reason entirely separate.  But we know what is said about 'birds of a feather..."

As a REALTOR one should make real estate related investments such as REITS.

No, I do not own stock in Zillow and I am not interested in stock speculation. Follow the advice of your professional investment adviser.

Bob - My understanding is that Zillow doesn't make any money, and never has. Plus, I heard the CEO of Zillow has been selling his stock.
