Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Rich Barton on “How I Built This with Guy Raz”

Expedia & Zillow: Rich Barton

“Expedia launched from inside Microsoft but was so successful at transforming the travel industry that it was spun out into a public company with Rich as CEO. Then in 2005, Rich moved on to a new idea with some Expedia colleagues, co-founding Zillow as a way to “turn on all the lights” in another sprawling industry: real estate.”

I’m a big fan of this podcast so I was thrilled to see my worlds collide when I saw Rich Barton was being featured. Guy does a great job of weaving a compelling narrative with his guests, this interview is no exception. While I think there is a bit of revisionist history going on, Rich’s accomplishments cannot be overstated.
