Nicolas Vincent, co-founder and manager of BuyerSide has a degree from the Institut d’Administration et de Gestion [Administration and Management Institute) (IAG) (currently the Louvain School of Management - LSM) at the UCL.
After his studies were complete, he was quickly attracted to the real estate sector, with this taking concrete form in the special training he followed in the United States at the University of Columbia (South Carolina) or the Solvay Business School (Postgraduate degree in Real Estate). His interest in real estate investment has been passed on by family traditions and enthusiasm going back several generations.
He began his career with GVA Grimley where, among other things, he was involved in setting up the closed-end investment company for residential properties, Aedifica (www.aedifica.be). Subsequently, Nicolas served as Associate Director at DTZ Winssinger (now Cushman & Wakefield). He was active in the investment department for 5 years, during which he advised domestic and international clients on major real estate transactions, mainly in Belgium. Nicolas was then Chief Investment Officer (CIO) at Home Invest Belgium. He joined BuyerSide in the summer of 2018 to develop the acquisition consulting department in the professional real estate business sectors.
Through BuyerSide, Nicolas wishes to use his accumulated experience in the professional real estate sector to help and advise professionnal buyers.
Nicolas has been a registered member of the IPI* (Institut Professionnel des agents Immobiliers – Professional Institute of Estate Agents) since 2010, under n° 505230.
