In early 2000s, when many global property franchises were entering the Turkish Property Market, our founder Meltem Turker realised that there was a big gap in the local market for a strong national brand with a global network and presence. Carrying years of experience under her belt and with a strong background in the property industry, ranging from sales to property development, she had only one dream in mind; To create a global property brand born from Turkey - a national brand, with a strong international presence and known to the world.
A national brand that would fill the gap in the Turkish property industry and offer real estate agency services at a global level, following international quality standards and supported by a team of knowledgeable and experienced brokers. With the aim, to ensure clients receive the optimal service and return on their investment.
With this in mind, GRED was born in 2008 and it gained strong coverage as it expanded its footprint in a highly fragmented Turkish property market. GRED offers a bespoke service for every client wanting to buy, sell, rent or make an attractive investment - a service that supports clients in every step of their property purchase with no buyer fees.
In 2015, after steady growth, GRED became known as a global player in the Turkish market, with a strong reputation and integrity. The company expanded and relocated its headquarters to London to gain further international exposure, next to the large real estate players.
In 2019, GRED established an exclusive partnership with Knight Frank UK New Homes and became a part of its global network representing Turkey as local partner – a global network which includes leading local property brands Douglas Elliman in the USA and Ziegert in Germany - a huge success and achievement for GRED – as the national brand of Turkey.
Teamwork makes the dream work
In 2020, GRED took a distinguished step to accelerate its journey by expanding its team and onboarding Knut Gaskjenn to support the company’s growth. Knut has strong international experience in Europe, US and the Middle East and brought his business acumen to restructure and scale the business to bring GRED’s vision to life.
Today, the brand continues its journey in expanding its global footprint and re-inventing its digital offering, as a necessity of the ‘new normal’. In addition, the team continues to grow to further strengthen the business and build new and stronger partnerships between the various markets GRED operates in – in the aim of achieving GRED global goal...
