21 January 2020 • Real estate

TOP 10 PREDICTIONS At the start of each year, we find it is a useful exercise to envisage what may lie ahead. And for better or worse, we still find more reasons to be optimistic about the Romanian economy in 2020 than the reverse. Economic growth is still set to outpace that of most EU countries while, at the same time, all real estate segments still display robust growth, albeit a bit mellower than the record- setting paces seen in recent years.

3 May 2019 • Real estate

Bucharest Romania has one of the highest seismic‐hazard levels in Europe. The Municipality of Bucharest is one of the capitals with the highest seismic risk in the world. Bucharest is particularly vulnerable to seismic hazard due to: the high density of inhabitants, especially within the residential districts with blocks of flats; the old public utility fund; the out-of-date infrastructure; the numerous industrial parks that are undergoing a restructuring process, not to mention the inefficient organization of civil protection and poor education of the population regarding seismic risk.

CEE Investment Market | H1 2019 | JLL

13 August 2019 • Real estate

Another record-breaking year for CEE? During the first six months of 2019 the CEE investment market saw a number of transactions for a total in excess of over €5.47 billion. Poland, with a nearly 50% of that amount, is the clear front-runner and it seems that, due to the extensive pipeline for H2, the country may approach the record- breaking volumes registered in 2018.

Testimonial Henrieke en Wim from the Netherlands

12 April 2019 • Testimonials

Since 2019 we live in Bucharest. Before we moved to the city, we didn't know anything about Bucharest and we had no idea of the pros and cons of the various locations and neighborhoods. Isfahan and Violetta helped us getting a view on all the different options and made a selection of apartments that were available before our migration. They arranged two afternoons filled with the viewing of different houses, negotiated about the price and as the result of that we now live in a great apartment on a beautiful location. Begin 2019 zijn wij in Boekarest komen wonen. Vooraf kenden we de stad totaal niet en we hadden geen idee van de voor-/nadelen van verschillende locaties en buurten in de stad. Isfahan en Violetta hebben ons onwijs geholpen bij de oriëntatie en hebben een mooie selectie gemaakt uit het grote aanbod aan appartementen. Na twee strak geplande middagen vol bezichtigingen hebben we een topplek gevonden waar we ons heel erg thuis voelen!
