Welcome to “Three Questions,” an interview series that humanizes the tech side of the real estate industry, fun included.

This week’s chat is with Greg Doerr, CTO at ShowingTime. He’s an imposing, no-nonsense figure that isn’t as out in front as ShowingTime CEO, Scott Woodard, or ShowingTime President, Michael Lane, but he’s certainly active behind the scenes. I can personally attest to this, because he was my boss’s boss when I worked at ShowingTime. I am also happy to say that he’s not so scary once you get to know him.

Q1: You have been an active participant in the creation of new Data Dictionary showing resources in the Showing Subgroup. What attracted you and ShowingTime to participate in this group, being the top dog in the space for the last several years?

Greg: ShowingTime has always worked really hard to maintain interoperability with other players, including the use of custom APIs. At the end of the day, what we do is about getting consumers into a home they want to buy. That’s at the core of our mission. It’s what we do and what we’ve always done.

Q2: It may not be reflected in the company name, but as a past employee, I know that ShowingTime has a robust market stats product, among other offerings. How are the other lines of business going, and are there any new or developing tidbits you can share with your old employee and the wider RESO audience?

Greg: Analytics continues to be an important business for ShowingTime, and we continue to invest in improving our products. Right now, we’re working hard on a new consolidated set of analytics products and are excited for all of the new things we’re releasing in 2022.

Q3: Speaking of company names, what’s it gonna be? ZillowTime or ShowingZillow?

Greg: Good question! We’re going to remain a separate company within the Zillow family of companies with access to the resources of the larger entity so we can improve the pace of innovation. Given this, after careful consideration, we’re going to continue to be ShowingTime!
