A big industry player has joined the RealScout team, bringing abundant industry experience and talent. Duke Fan joins RealScout as Vice President of Product.
Duke joins RealScout with over 20 years of product management and leadership experience. During his tenure at Yahoo! he innovated and grew critical product lines including personalization (My Yahoo!, Registration) and search client software (Yahoo! Toolbar, Anti-Spy, Desktop Search). More recently, Duke spent over 5 years at Realtor.com(R) where he served as Vice President of Product and Mobile Experience. There he helped develop the highest rated real estate search apps for iOS, Android and Windows 8, and launched additional mobile apps for rentals and mortgage.
“I am really excited to be joining the RealScout team to focus on making the best search experience for home buyers and their agents,” said Duke. “Over the coming months we’ll be doubling down on our core promise of helping agents assist their clients in becoming happy homeowners.”
Duke’s move to RealScout has made headlines. Inman news recently released an article discussing Duke and other ‘power shifts’ among RealScout, Zillow, and Realtor.com.
“I wasn’t looking to leave Realtor.com,” Fan told Inman News. However, the excitement of RealScout’s startup environment and the prospect of building something from the ground up again gave him “that bug.” And boy, are we glad he did.
