I joined Colliers International in October 2018, after completing my MSc in International Management. During my studies I did several exchanges in multiple countries in Europe and Asia, which broadened my international mindset and knowledge about cultural consumer differences. As Junior Research Consultant I am focusing mostly on the Residential and Retail markets.
I started as a research consultant at Colliers in 2019. The research team is focused on the internal support of the various business lines in order to let them function as well as possible. In addition, we focus on external publications. With the pulbications we try to increase our brand awareness in the Netherlands and to be the expert on the future of real estate.
Before Colliers I worked at The Class of 2020, the leading thinktank on student living in Europe, where I headed the research department. Before that, I worked as a researcher at Savills, and before that at the real estate department of the Radboud University as a policy advisor.
After a successful internship in 2017, I officially joined Colliers in 2018 as Junior Consultant Hotels. My role as Junior Consultant was to support the Senior Consultants with transaction and consultancy assignments. For example, I have been involved in dispositions and acquisitions of hotels, leasing assignments, valuations, feasibility studies and contract negotiations. Besides, I was part of the Colliers Research team until the end of 2020, where I was responsible for collecting and analyzing market data and writing market stories and publications.
Since the beginning of 2020, I have the position of Consultant Hotels, where I primarily focus on the consultancy assignments within the hotel team. This includes guiding rental assignments, conducting feasibility studies and valuations and advising during contract negotiations. Clients are hotel developers, owners and hotel operators.
I joined Colliers as a Research consultant in 2020. My main focus will be on the office- and retail markets. The research team supports other business lines by providing data and data-analyses. Another main occupation of the team is the publishing of news articles on different topics within the field of real estate.
