Navigating the international real estate landscape in Helsinki
I've developed a keen interest in the real estate sector, realizing its size and complexity, especially within the tight-knit community here in Finland. The centralization of the real estate investment sector in Helsinki has exposed me to many brilliant professionals. Within Transactions, you build valuable relationships with brokers and lawyers, gaining access to information beyond what is available in market reports. I like working in an international environment where you get to speak English and meet people from different countries and different backgrounds.
I would say that each transaction is a highlight and an achievement, a testament to a great team effort – from the initial stages of modeling to the final signing of the agreements and deal closure. It almost feels like navigating a winding river, with its twists and turns, creating a sense of accomplishment even when faced with uncertainties along the way.
After the closing of the transaction, the responsibility of the asset is transferred from the acquisition team to the asset management team. However, since we are such a small group of people you get to witness the evolution of the asset and see if the assumptions made initially are realized.
