Get to Know Spencer Rascoff

Hi -

I'm Spencer Rascoff, the CEO of Zillow.com, one of the largest real estate websites. 

I grew up in New York and then Los Angeles. Went to college in Boston and then back to New York, before moving to San Francisco and then Seattle.

I used to be an investment banker at Goldman Sachs, and then I was a private equity investor at Texas Pacific Group in San Francisco.

In 1999, I co-founded an online travel company, Hotwire.com, which we sold to Expedia in 2003. I worked at Expedia for a year as VP Lodging before joining Zillow as employee #4 in March 2005.

You can follow me on twitter here.



My areas of expertise include online advertising, technology startups, online travel, investment banking, private equity investing and venture capital. And of course, real estate.
