Daniela Popescu is part of the Colliers International team since 2005 and has worked in the residential department and subsequently in the consulting division, and in 2012 has taken over as Head of Research, being involved in various analyzes, reports and forecasts on the real estate market Romania.
The last two years she dedicated exclusively to the retail market and, as associate director of the retail department, worked with most of the large owners and the main tenants in the market and with a series of new names.

"Two years ago, I thought that after 10 years of consulting and research, it is time to join the leasing team, more precisely the retail department, in its key period. Successful transactions, including retail space in office buildings, led me to continue the consultancy and brokerage activity in the office department, for which I have worked intensively since the research period", says Daniela Popescu.
The last few years have made major changes in the office market: buildings have become more than a workplace facility, and developers have begun to pay more attention to the work environment of employees as a result of the increased demand of companies.

"The office market is at a historic moment, requiring specialists able to think about 360 degree full-scale solutions for customers whose requirements are becoming more and more complex. That's why appointing Daniela, who has extensive experience on different market segments, is a move that shows the importance that Colliers gives to office sector", said Sebastian Dragomir, director of Colliers International's office department Romania.

In 2017, the Bucharest office market recorded deliveries of more than 120,000 square meters, so the total stock of modern facilities reached almost 2,3 million square meters. Rental activity remained fairly strong: despite the fact that the total volume of Class A rentals declined by 10% compared to 2016, to 320,000 sqm, net demand (new demand, expansions and relocations from uncompetitive spaces) has climbed to a peak post-crisis, almost half of the total.

In the context of an increasingly tightened labor market, rental activity will moderate slightly in 2018 compared to the previous year, up to 10%. (source: businesscover.ro)
