During the final month of the last year Pickard closed a number of significant transactions. For the Swiss company Nestle, the world’s largest food producer, the company served as the exclusive consultant in the leasing of A-class office space of more than 5000 sq.m in Kyiv. This December deal was the final project in a whole range of services, rendered to Nestle during 2013: firstly the sale of retail premices of 440 m2 on Velyka Zhytomyrska St. in Kyiv, which was owned by the “Svitoch” factory (August), leasing of new regional offices for Nestle in Dnipropetrovsk and Simferopol (July); advising Svitoch on the property market (June).
Also Pickard in the partnership with Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (USA) were appointed in 2013 by a major USA client as the exclusive agent to dispose of 7 property assets in Kyiv and other major cities around Ukraine. The first 2 of these properties were sold in December and three more in January.
Our residential department closed 6 deals in December with a total value of $556 470. And in January a relatively new division, Pickard Homes which focuses on the residential needs of diplomats and expatriates, launched a new website for their clientele.
