Giving the keynote address, the CEO of Broll Ghana, Tony Sekyere, stated that the company was founded in 2006 to address the lack of maintenance culture in the real estate industry, and it has evolved into a multi-disciplinary professional service firm with footprints.

The aim of the creation that we see today was to have an organisation that could deliver an integrated and professional approach to real estate services and address the lack of maintenance culture we had in the system at the time, and also offer to the market a full spectrum of property related services.”
“On commencement, we had two main services, which was property management and facility management and overtime we have introduced other service lines and now Broll Ghana is multi-disciplinary professional service firm providing services in core areas in shopping centre management, property broking, corporate real estate valuation & advisory, market research, facilities management and property management,” he added.
