For more than eight years, Turan Tekin has led the growth of Bridge Interactive, an Atlanta-based real estate software company, until its acquisition by Zillow Group in August 2016.
As Bridge Interactive's co-founder, Tekin has been the key driver behind the fast-paced growth of the company in 2018, delivering Bridge technology tools to more than 535,000 agents in the U.S. and Canada.
Acquired by Zillow Group two years ago, Bridge Interactive crossed several significant milestones this year, including the creation of more than 16,000 listings using Bridge Listing input. Bridge Interactive's Listing Input tool uses clean design, machine learning and a rich set of features to make creating listings easier than ever before—and with no limits on high-resolution photos.
In addition to helping grow the Bridge Interactive team sevenfold due to demand of Bridge's tools, Tekin continues to lead sales and marketing for Bridge Interactive, in addition to serving an expanded role as director of MLS and industry relations for Zillow Group.
"The past two years have been incredibly exciting for the Bridge team," said Tekin earlier this year, who likens the software company's swift growth to the Japanese proverb, "Fast is slow, but continuously and without interruption."
