Real estate advisor Realone Oy expands its expertise in real estate investment with new stakeholders – Real estate industry veterans Kari Inkinen, Pia Arrhenius and Tuomas Kankaanpää become shareholders

Realone, a fast-growing real estate company has strengthened its expertise with three new shareholders. Kari Inkinen and Pia Arrhenius, who have been operating in the real estate industry for a long time, will bring real estate investment experience and private equity network. Tuomas Kankaanpää joins as a partner after working on the company's projects since 2016.

In a short time, Realone has grown into a leading strategic real estate advisor to operational companies. The company has wide experience working with real estate transactions and real estate development. In recent years, Realone has focused on acting as a strategic partner for internationally operating companies. The company is responsible for and assists in the optimisation and development of the real estate assets of Nokia, Kemira and Tikkurila, among others.

Realone has carried out several significant transactions with its clients, and in addition, the company has a large base of zoning development projects and real estate development projects to work on. Recent examples include Nokia Corporation's Oulu campus and Kemira Oyj's Finnoo area development project. In recent years, sale & leaseback transactions have been particularly emphasized in transaction operations.

"For several years now, Realone has been able to act as a strategic partner for internationally operating companies in the optimization of their property ownership and transactions. Kari and Pia's strong expertise in the real estate sector provides a good starting point for expanding our operations also into real estate investment," says Jorma Sonninen, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Realone.

With the shareholdings of Kari Inkinen and Pia Arrhenius and the new ownership arrangement, Realone's operations will expand to include real estate investments and advising private equity investors. Thanks to the strong expertise of Kari and Pia, the company will assist and represent domestic and international investors in Finland in the future.

"The market situation has changed in recent years, especially in the commercial real estate sector, and the change has brought new needs to the sector. On the real estate investment and real estate development side, there is a growing need for services like Realone and we decided to take up the challenge. Realone has been in the business for nearly 40 years and has grown steadily and sensibly. Realone's strong expertise and long-term successful development work provide good opportunities for business expansion", Kari Inkinen comments.
