With a deal finalised in the last quarter of 2007, the news is made official for the beginning of 2008: Halldis, market leader in Italy in the Corporate Housing sector, becomes one of 5 companies fully controlled by a new Group, Windows on Europe Spa.
Through its different, highly specialized companies, the Group - with Leonardo Ferragamo as Chairman and Pietro Martani as CEO - sees to acquire market share as an authority in the world of innovative real estate management, corporate housing and vacation rentals in Europe, drawing from the expertise of the different companies: from real estate acquisitions, to property management, to real estate investment consulting.
