It’s been a big year for Zillow. The Seattle online real estate company made two acquisitions, completed an initial public offering and turned its first profit. Amid all of the changes, Zillow actually moved into new offices in the Russell Investments Center in downtown Seattle.
Amazingly, the 300-person company is getting close to outgrowing the four-month-old space. Just one small corner remains, and the company expects that could fill up soon.
Here’s an inside look at the headquarters, which chief marketing officer Amy Bohutinsky says preserves the company’s “startup DNA” but also offers a “clean and modern vibe.” And while there are some awesome views of Elliott Bay, there’s no receptionist. Find out why in the videos below.
I spoke at the company last week, and afterwards Bohutinsky showed me around the new digs of Seattle’s latest publicly-traded company.
The Zillow game room boasts ping pong, air hockey and a lifelike punching bag — perfect for relieving stress.
One of the amazing things about Zillow’s growth has been the rise of a professional sales force. On the 29th floor, you could hear the constant chatter as dozens of sales professionals sold prospective clients on the Premier Agent advertising program.
