“Never let anyone treat you like a yellow Starburst. You are a pink Starburst.”
Born in Istanbul, Batuhan moved to Boston at age 12 before attending Suffolk University to study Business Management. Having enough of the high-stress East Coast, he first moved to California before settling in Reno.
His goal is to help improve his community by helping developments come to life. He says Reno is “the perfect canvas to create a colorful, contemporary city, and we are doing just that.”
He began his career in new home development, working with builders to sell home. He also founded Pizzava, the popular MidTown pizzeria and currently owns Hookava.
His approach to sales is that he will never sacrifice his ethics or enthusiasm in a deal. “I will treat every deal like it is my own,” he said.
Outside of work, he enjoys camping with his girlfriend and dog.
