The Finnish commercial real estate markets have developed and professionalized notably during the past two decades. This paper discusses the development of brokerage services in the Finnish commercial real estate markets both in terms of overall development of the property markets as well as the nature of the brokerage services. The study focuses on developments from the end on 1980’s until 2007 and has a special emphasis on office markets.
