Trust is the key to good real estate management

We have several decades worth of experience in providing real estate management services. We currently manage almost 200 housing cooperatives, mostly located in Vaasa, Seinäjoki and Kokkola. We are committed to observing the Ethical Guidelines for Real Estate Management approved by Isännöitsijöiden Auktorisointiyhdistys ISA ry, the Finnish Real Estate Management Federation and the Finnish Real Estate Federation. Lakea Oy is also a member of the Finnish Real Estate Management Federation. Read more about the Ethical Guidelines for Real Estate Management.

As the real estate manager, we want, above all, to be a reliable and competent partner for the boards, shareholders and residents of housing cooperatives. For our customers, this is reflected in open and transparent operations as well as customer-oriented service. We also invest in proactive, long-term maintenance of properties, which promotes their safety and health and has a positive impact on both the comfort of housing and the preservation of the value of the real estate.
