Fastighetsbyrån is Sweden's leading real estate agency and a wholly owned subsidiary of Swedbank. Swedbank is Sweden's largest bank and one of the most well-known brands in the country.
Fastighetsbyrån was established in Sweden back in 1966, and today it has around 270 offices and 1,600 employees. Together, our offices arrange about a quarter of all property sales in Sweden. We have been operating in Spain since 2008 and in Portugal since 2014, and we are currently setting up a network of offices along the Mediterranean coast. We are also expanding into Portugal.
When it comes to running a successful estate agency, we benefit greatly from our Swedish heritage. We blend our efficient, transparent style of service delivery with a warm and welcoming approach to our clients.
The close collaboration between our overseas and Swedish offices often brings us into contact with clients who are interested in overseas properties. We are also experiencing increased demand from other countries for our Spanish and Portuguese property services, from Norway to the United Kingdom.
The desire to develop constantly is a natural and crucial quality for everyone who works for Fastighetsbyrån. Our vision is based on recognition of the fact that our customers’ needs and requirements continue to grow and develop on an ongoing basis.
On the basis of our key concepts of business acumen, credibility, and commitment, we strive to achieve our vision of developing from a conventional broker into a knowledge and service led company that specialises in properties. Our ultimate aim is to accommodate our customers' wishes and requirements for a holistic solution for properties. And we have nothing at all against being imitated. Quite the reverse – we see this as proof that we are doing the right thing and doing it well.
