Atisreal, a subsidiary of BNP Paribas real estate, moves into the Netherlands and Ukraine with two new alliances

  • 08.10.2008
Leading European real estate adviser Atisreal has expanded its international alliance network further, signing new alliance contracts with Holland Realty Partners in the Netherlands and Astera in Ukraine.

Holland Realty Partners was founded by three specialists: Machiel Hoek, Sake Pleiter and Sicco Posthumus. The RICS* company is based in Amsterdam and has 11 employees. The company offers a wide range of services and expertise including: transaction, valuations, asset management, consultancy, fund & investment management and research.

In Ukraine, Atisreal has enhanced its alliance with Astera, having signed with Astera's Russian business in February. Based in Moscow, St Petersburg and Kiev, Astera was founded in 1992 by Geoffrey Cox, Chairman, and Alexei Filimonov, General Director. The company has around 180 employees, with 30 based in the Kiev office. Astera also has a wide range of services and expertise in transaction, strategy, valuation, investment analysis, auctions, space planning & design and research.

Both companies are now able to further expand their local and international business through the Atisreal and BNP Paribas Real Estate international network.

Henri Faure, Chairman of Atisreal International, says “Following our recent alliance in Greece and Cyprus with Danos & Associates, we continue to strengthen our positions in Western Europe, with Holland Realty Partners and in Eastern Europe, with Astera. Furthermore, we can unlock synergies with the BNP Paribas group in these two regions, and make use of their market knowledge and customers, to which the group can now also offer our real estate services”.
