Zillow Group is looking north of the border to add Canadian properties to its marketplace.
The company is registered as an active lobbyist with the Canadian government, represented by Summa Strategies’ Alex Maheu, and sources confirmed executive Errol Samuelson has visited Ottawa to explore opportunities, according to BuzzBuzzNews.
“We know that many buyers in the U.S. are interested in purchasing Canadian property, so we are looking into adding Canadian listings. We currently have no plans to build a Canadian version of Zillow,” wrote spokesperson Emily Heffter in a statement to BuzzBuzzNews.
Started 11 years ago, the Seattle-based company has grown to a database of more than 110 million homes.
