Real Estate Amsterdam

Real Estate
Our client has during some time followed the Dutch real estate market and completed its first acquisition in fall 2018. The Dutch residential rental market is characterized by favorable residential fundamentals relative other countries, such as increasing housing shortage, annual rent indexation and market rental growth out-pacing inflation. The rental market is furthermore to a large extent regulated resulting in rent increases above inflation and the regulation is identical for the whole country. Through the acquisition, our client obtains a good exposure to The Netherlands and becomes an important player in the Dutch residential property market as the third largest private residential property owner. In order to replace and strengthen its Dutch organization and to invest in future growth (integrating the company values), our client is looking for an ambitious Managing Director/CEO (f/m).
