“FRIS is a family-owned firm that began nearly 100 years ago. Since then, they have grown to a team of 70+ and become one of the most respected names in the real estate business in the Netherlands. I am very excited to welcome Hans Peter and the entire team at FRIS to the CORFAC network. Their expertise will be invaluable as we continue to expand throughout Europe and the world,” said Sim Doughtie, CCIM, MCR, SIOR, SLCR, 2019 President of CORFAC International.
