DUNWOODY — Popular real estate company Zillow will be making its new Southeastern home in Dunwoody.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp today announced that Zillow Group, the largest portfolio of real estate brands on the web, has named the metro Atlanta area its Southeastern hub, bringing nearly 200 jobs to the area.
“Our state’s skilled workforce continues to attract game-changing companies like Zillow,” Kemp said. “Innovative, industry-leading tech companies have found their home in literally every corner of our state, and as the industry grows in Georgia, I am confident that Zillow will continue to find success here. I’d like to thank them for choosing our state as their new hub, and I look forward to seeing the opportunities this investment creates for hardworking Georgians across metro Atlanta.”
Founded in 2005 in Seattle, Zillow operates a suite of real estate brands via mobile and the web. The new office will be conveniently located in metro Atlanta – the epicenter for growth in the cyber and tech industries.
“While Zillow Group has had a presence in the Atlanta area for a number of years, we’re excited to expand our presence and make it our Southeastern U.S. hub,” said President of Zillow Jeremy Wacksman.
The majority of new job opportunities will be focused on supporting Zillow Offers, which is the company’s home buying program that gives homeowners an innovative and easy way to sell their existing residence to Zillow.
Multiple other business lines will have a presence in the metro Atlanta area, including Zillow Closing Services, Zillow Home Loans, Zillow Rentals, Zillow’s Premier Agent team, as well as Bridge Interactive, a B2B software business that has been headquartered in Atlanta for the past 14 years.
“Our skilled workforce is a great fit for a company like Zillow. We are excited about the new energy Zillow will bring to the Dunwoody Perimeter Market,” said Dunwoody Mayor Lynn Deutsch.
