When it comes to real estate, the retail market requires special expertise. We are going to further develop our long-standing solid position in the Amsterdam region with our new retail label. Led by Rob van Sabben as our new retail partner, we are able to provide retailers, investors, and developers with our services in the field of renting, letting, purchase, and sale of retail property, location advice, advice on acquisitions, branching, and (re)development of retail property.
Rob van Sabben: ´In the over 25 years that I have been active, a lot has changed within retail. The challenges of today not only apply to the retailer, but to the property owner and developer as well. On-line sales have become a full-fledged concept that involves rapid developments, while real estate is less flexible in nature. Therefore, today, good vision and knowledge of the retail market is far better than having ‘know how’ about the stones. The added value of inner cities and shopping centres has to be continuously reassessed. Retailers who properly align their online and offline sales are the winners. Investors and developers who understand this and quickly respond to this within their portfolios can profit from this’.
