Trending: Seattle restaurant delivery complaint in ‘reply all’ email turns into $10K donation to food charity

Zillow.com has attracted plenty of consumers with its iPhone, iPad and Android apps. But the Seattle company’s latest mobile release has another group in mind: real estate professionals. Zillow today is releasing its first app for the BlackBerry, the most popular mobile device used by those in the real estate profession.

There’s plenty of competition for the eyeballs of BlackBerry-wielding real estate professionals. Inman News last summer featured 17 popular real estate apps for the BlackBerry.

Mobile is becoming a bigger part of the mix for Zillow. The company says that 30 percent of its weekend traffic now comes from mobile devices, up from 20 percent just a few months ago.

In total, the company said that Zillow is used 6.5 million times per month on mobile devices. The company first launched its iPhone app in 2009, and with the introduction of the BlackBerry app Zillow says 90 percent of smart phone users now can access its data.

Features of the new BlackBerry app include:

  • Multiple search filters that include price, number of bedrooms and bathrooms and other valuable home-related information.
  • Homes viewable on a map with high-resolution satellite and street view.
  • Home search by location or by typing in a city, ZIP code or address.
  • Full-screen color photos of homes.
