“The level of interest in the market has been high, and we’ve sold particularly well in Greater Oslo,” says CEO Rolf Thorsen. “Stavanger has also made a positive contribution.”

“Our campaigns have hit the mark well, and laid the basis for more personal customer follow-up. We’re optimistic about further progress for the company. The need for housing is as high as it was before, and too few homes are being built in the Oslo area.”
