“Our day-to-day work is based on competence, transparency and respect for business relationships and has determined the long-lasting trust of our clients and most market participants. We provide services to business, individuals and the public sector. Hence the evaluation of a wide circle of customers is very important to us. The Euromoney award is a pleasant recognition as well. It will motivate us to further develop new quality standards for complex RE services in the market,” Audrius Šapoka, general manager of Ober-Haus, said.
The Lithuanian team of Ober-Haus has more than 130 employees. The company provides around 12,000 RE services annually. Last year, the company concluded 1,200 transactions on the sale and rent of residential and commercial property, prepared more than 11,000 property evaluation reports, valuation expertise and consultations. Ober-Haus Market Research Department has accumulated unique data and prepared regular overviews which reflect relevant events and issues in the RE market for over 20 years. “Our impartiality and the significance of our data to the market is proven by the fact that we are most often quoted by the media, famous economists, the Bank of Lithuania and other leading commercial banks,” Šapoka noted. In 2020, Ober-Haus had a turnover of EUR 4.25 million, excl. VAT.
