EST Kinnisvara is a well-managed property company which was established at the time I ran a Forest Investment Company (Fest-Forest, now HD Forest) for some 18 years. It started by the initiative of Eva Kams and her husband Toomas, finding and managing property for our investment clients and grew to have a mix of local and overseas clients. The continued success of the company, and the confidence in the local property market is measured by the fact that most of the overseas clients continue to invest.
EST Kinnisvara also purchases and manages agricultural land. This is an important aspect for the forestry investor, as agricultural land is often a significant part and can give both some rental income as well as development opportunities.
Any service business is only as good as its staff and Toomas, Eva, Joel and Joosep are dedicated to their clients to the extent that many regard them as their friends. They all have their own special interest which gives the team a wide knowledge base.
When I went to the Baltics in the late nineteens, there were many opportunities, but also many risks. Elin, Toomas and Eva provided a solid basis for me to introduce my clients and keep them safe and make their investments work. Although I am no longer involved, their legacy lives on in EST Kinnisvara and, if there are opportunities, they will find them.
I invested myself as well in some property through EST Kinnisvara, which helped make my pension more comfortable. I recommend EST Kinnisvara without hesitation.
Felix Karthaus started Fest-Forest in 1998 in Estonia which expanded into Latvia and was sold to HedeDenmark in 2012 which continues to expand it. Felix was also a director of EST Kinnisvara when it started in 2002 until he retired. He has very fond memories of his time in the Baltics and local people.
