Real Estate

Overview - About

The real estate industry is a key driver and indicator of economic activity. Today's rapidly changing economic environment resulted in a notable decrease in demand and Investors' confidence. The Cyprus property market is currently experiencing immensely challenging times. This renders the business environment more complex and calls for a need on independent real estate consultants who are able to equip clients with specialised and professional skills.
