ZipRealty will keep Raleigh office open

The folks at ZipRealty are saying, whoa, not so fast. After informing the state that it might close its North Carolina offices, the California residential brokerage now says its Glenwood Avenue location will remain open.

Gone, though, will be 87 jobs, which will be replaced by independent contractors in January, says ZipRealty’s John Oldham, director of marketing.

Confusion arose after ZipRealty issued a WARN notification last week to the North Carolina Department of Commerce stating that it would be terminating the 87 employees at its Raleigh office. The notice stated that ZipRealty “eventually may close its real estate offices in the state.”

Oldham says that language used in the WARN notice was just a legal requirement.

“We have not announced plans to close operations in North Carolina at this time, and all former employee agents who choose to remain with the company may continue on as independent contractor agents,” Oldham stated in an e-mail message sent on Saturday.
