Azets, one of Europe’s largest regional accountancy and business advisory firms and leading accountancy and outsourced services provider and real estate management services in the Nordic countries, will acquire Astala Isännöinti Oy, which provides real estate management services in Helsinki, and Astala Tekniikka Oy, which is part of it.
Astala Isännöinti has been operating in Helsinki for 50 years. After the merger of Rantamäki and Astala Isännöinti, Azets' real estate management services will have over 70 expert employees and a turnover rising to 8 million euros.
“To succeed in the real estate management business, a company has to be able to combine modern digital services and an excellent customer experience with responsibility and transparency.

In this way, we will be able to develop the real estate management industry together to offer customers an even higher quality service,” says Ulla Nikkanen, MD of Azets Finland.

Locality and community at the center of future real estate management services
A significant factor in the acquisition was the consistency of the companies' strategy and values - reliability, responsibility and collaboration are the most important values of both.
“Rantamäki and Astala have been operating side by side for decades, offering real estate management services to properties located in Helsinki who appreciate the high-quality service. Our goal is to be the most attractive employer in the real estate management sector and a trendsetter showing how real estate management should be done and properties managed,” says Mika Laakkonen, MD of Rantamäki.
Both companies’ services include comprehensive real estate management services and technical services as well as extensive value-added services. Strong partnership thinking guides their way of working.
“We want to offer the kind of real estate management we would like to have to ourselves and we manage the properties like they would be our own.
