In its opening cocktail, NEF Gayrimenkul thus showed its hospitality to not only participants from Turkey, but also to investors from countries such as Germany, France, The Netherlands, Italy, The UK, Canada, Russia, which play important roles in the global real estate market.
“We are working breathlessly”
Erden Timur stated that NEF was making progress in the way of becoming an international real estate and design brand and underlined that they identified their shortcomings in the sector by carrying out research in the national and international fields. Timur said: “The Turkish real estate sector has finalized important projects in the field of construction, yet, its biggest shortcoming is that it has failed to create an international brand in this field as we have seen. Departing from this point, we have been working breathlessly since 2004 with our entire team in order to cover this gap.”
Timur also stated that NEF started to become recognized in the international arena and he added: “NEF has been the first Turkish company to be invited to 100 % Design London, one of the most prestigious fairs in the world, from Turkey. NEF has flown the Turkish flag with pride at 100 % Design London, which brings together designers and artists from all corners of the world every year.”
