Message from the Chairman

All aspects of real estate – brokerage, investment, leasing and management – have been gradually and often imperceptibly shaped by EU policy over time, in particular with the decades-long but ultimately successful effort to create an EU Internal Market for Real Estate ensuring property investment flows and the freedom to provide property services without obstacle.
