Our journey


Formerly known as ZipRealty, ZapLabs was founded in 1999 by two UC Berkeley Haas School of Business graduates.


Headquartered in Emeryville, California, the tech-enabled brokerage went public in November 2004, trading on NASDAQ under the ticker symbol ZIPR.


In 2014, ZapLabs was acquired and became the tech hub for global real estate leader Realogy Holdings Corp. (NYSE: RLGY).


Today, we're the driving force behind trans-
formative technology for consumers and 150,000+ independent real estate professionals affiliated with Realogy's world-
renowned real estate brands.

Moving forward

ZapLabs is growing rapidly! We’re 175-strong and continue to build our team of inventive, curious folks.
