Chairman, Bayram Tekçe | Istanbul Homes ®
I was born in Zonguldak Ereğli, in 1972. I completed my university degree in Ankara University DTCF Dutch Language and Literature Department and graduated as Philologist. I started my career as a Professional Tourist Guide approved by the Ministry of Tourism between 1996-2004.
In 2004, when the property sales to foreigners were made legally possible, I have founded Antalya Homes Real Estate Inc. (which now has the legal name Tekce Overseas Gayrimenkul AS). My company, which gained strength over the years by making thousands of foreigners from more than a hundred different nationalities as property owners in Turkey; also released strong brands such as Istanbul Homes, Trabzon Homes and Bursa Homes. In 2018, by establishing Tekce Overseas SA based in Malaga – Spain, we started to sell Spanish properties to buyers from all over the world with the Spain Homes brand.
With my sectoral knowledge and experience, I have established the Real Estate Export Committee within the body of GYODER, in order to grow the real estate sector with sustainable policies. The committee plays an important role in the growth of the sector by shedding light on the operational problems in front of property sales to foreigners. In order to contribute to the development of the sector, I took part in the establishment of the Real Estate International Promotion Association (GİGDER).
I am currently the Chairman of Tekce Overseas Gayrimenkul AS, the Vice President in the Board of Directors of GİGDER and the Chairman of the Real Estate Export Committee of GYODER.
Besides Turkish, which is my mother tongue, I speak English and Dutch at an advanced level.
