I have a windows app that I would like to be able to push a button and go to a specific property profile using Zillow API.    I am familliar with getting the Zillow ID.   Now I just need an example on how to provide an address and have a browser open with the Zillow Profile.

Does anyone have a clue on where to start?

I've NEVER used Zillow...I assume you are working with this site?
http://www.zillow.com/

If you already have a "zpid", then you can open a browser with it like this:

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim zpid As String = "15922537" ' <-- get it somehow
        Dim URL As String = "http://www.zillow.com/HDPClick.htm?zpid=" & zpid
        Process.Start(URL)
    End Sub

Apologies if I'm way off base..
