SERBIA Colliers goes West in Serbia

Human resources
Colliers has entered into an affiliate agreement with Serbian real estate services company West Properties.

The partnership is to expand Colliers’ services in the SEE region, where it has existing operations in neighbouring countries.

This partnership brings another key European market into Colliers’ EMEA region. We are witnessing strong occupier and investor demand in Serbia due to positive GDP growth and the availability of affordable funding. Demonstrating this demand, the number of real estate transactions in Belgrade rose by 25 pct in 2021, while the value of the assets on the market last year was EUR 6.1 bln, which is 50 pct more than in 2020. We are confident that our new operation in Serbia is set for long-term growth and collaboration with our colleagues and clients in Southeast Europe and across the EMEA.
Davoud Amel-Azizpour, the CEO of the EMEA region at Colliers

Belgrade-based West Properties, which was established by managing director Vladimir Popović and CEO Vladimir Vukićević 20 years ago, is now rebranding to Colliers.
