Yes Zillow and Trulia have a single owner. Each has slightly different features so it depends on what you like to see. Both are aggregator sites. They take public or available private data and put it all together for you, so accuracy depends on what is available to them and how accurate that is. So everything needs to be double checked eventually, but it is a good starting point.

I've been told that Realtor shows data the most quickly and may have more listings shown.

Yes, Realtor.com carries listings from all REALTOR-owned MLSs.
Not all brokers, and not all firms let their listings go to Zillow, etc, so, like Redfin, Realtor.com should have the most and the most current information.

Pros/Con of each
It's merely a matter of which one looks/feels better to you, with regard to user experience (UX). Neither site is a champion of accuracy, but as others have stated, they are both a starting point.

if there's one thing that's become clear, the OP has no real intention of engaging in real questions or informative content.

It depends on what you want from the website. Zillow allows FSBO which won't show up on a lot of Realtor MLS sites. Redfin would probably have more accurate data. caveat emptor either way, tho.

I can’t use Redfin, since it says they aren’t in my zip code yet.

IMO, Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor are basically the same. I can post a rental listing on Zillow and it’ll automatically show up on the other two (and also Hotpads).
