National real estate company Redfin Corp., which serves as an online broker, is cutting 20 percent of its workforce, according to the Washington Business Journal. The D.C. area operation launched in July of 2007; only one person has been laid off from the Falls Church office. Zillow, a website which estimates home values, has also suffered cuts recently—-27 percent of its staff—-though none of them were in the Washington region.
