YES - BUT although they are advertising themselves to take on Zillow, I can tell you what i do know. If you list bank owned homes, some banks use them to manage the sales. Such as submitting tasks and invoices. I USED to pay fo rall sorts of zip codes until they increased their fees ten plus fold. I no longer pay them as they have never got me a client other than a bank i already worked with.

I had received an email from Equator.com today. They stated... "Unlike Zillow, Equator.com Agent Ads are only a fraction of the price and is EXCLUSIVE. You can lock-in your position now and get all the real estate leads in cities you choose."

Let me know about their fee.  This year Realtors.com offered me some leads for free. Their fee was fairly pricey. Their marketing guy was honest told me the conversion rate was 5% they sent to two agents at same time. In my case, it will cost several K a year for 1 or 2 zip codes. So I passed. 

Equator-I was one of the few subscribers getting 1 zip code free and got a REO listing through the bank. I am sure it costs now.

I used Equator to process many short sales back in the day when my business was 100% short sales.  I used the Equator platform only because the lender required me to do so. They promised the moon and the starts back then, promoting getting bank owned listings.

Many lenders required agents to run their short sales through Equator. I had an account with them. I think they were bought out /merged with another company ( Altisource) so not sure what value they provide to real estate agents these days? https://altisource.com/Our-Solutions
