According to Alexandru Petrescu, managing partner of ESOP Consulting, financial consultants are needed now more than ever in providing solutions for clients looking for a residential location. “The new realities of the real estate market led to the partnership between the two companies providing interconnected services,” Petrescu said.
Last year, Kiwi Finance, the former Gemini Capital Consult and part of the Swedish investment fund Oresa Ventures' portfolio, said it planned to reach 30 offices in Romania by 2010. Kiwi Finance posted a EUR 3.4 million turnover at the end of 2008, a 2 percent increase compared with 2007, while the company sold credits worth EUR 442 million.
Esop Consulting's partnership with Kiwi is another move made by a local real etate agency in delivering financing services to its clients.
