  8. How would you describe the CRE atmosphere in Stockholm/Sweden?
    It is a good market for our services but very difficult to find incentive savings due to low vacancy grade.
  9. What is the most valuable advice you can give a client in today’s overall CRE atmosphere?
    To analyze the working space based on the knowledge of their staff’s needs and how they will utilize it; i.e. What does the typical working day look like and how can their space support staff in reaching their goals?
  10. Why is exclusively representing tenants important to you?
    Yes I don’t like the other part of the industry; we like to only represent tenants because that is the most pure and loyal way to help tenants out. Also, in Sweden the property owner usually has an abnormal advantage – especially in Stockholm where we are active, hence the tenants especially need our advice and help.
  11. Most meaningful/valuable feedback you’ve received from a client:
    “Don’t sell too hard.”
  12. Additional Comments/Information:
    In order to succeed, our tenant reps must try to understand the customer experience.
