CBRE has signed an affiliate agreement with CBS International dooel Skopje, a commercial real estate services provider in Macedonia. The agreement, which will further strengthen CBRE’s presence in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region, follows the company’s acquisition of IMPACT-CORTI in the Czech Republic and Slovakia in 2013.
CBS International dooel Skopje was recently established by Dragan Radulovic, who also founded CBRE’s affiliates in Serbia – CBS International d.o.o Beograd – and in Montenegro – CBS International d.o.o Herceg Novi.
Mr Radulovic will initially act as the principal of the new Macedonian business and will work alongside five senior real estate professionals based in Skopje, offering a full range of real estate advisory services.
Andreas Ridder, Managing Director of CEE for CBRE, commented: “We have worked alongside Dragan and his teams for over seven years, so his firm is an obvious entry point for CBRE in to Macedonia, and provides a solid platform for us to meet our clients’ needs in that country. We know CBS International has the same culture and operational approach as CBRE; clients come first, and they are passionate about providing the highest quality, bespoke and best value service possible.”
Dragan Radulovic, Managing Director, CBS International dooel Skopje, added: “As one of the most rapidly emerging markets of the former Yugoslav countries, Macedonia is experiencing an extensive development boom. We know that many of our clients agree with our view that Macedonia has huge investment potential, and therefore opening a Macedonian office was a natural continuation of our activities in the region. We are delighted that we can now offer local, on the ground advice combined with CBRE’s world-class expertise, to help our clients meet their business goals.”
