Brokerage students to final

Published: 15 March 2017

Two students at Luleå University of Technology have reached the final in the competition Student of the Year that is determined on the 15th March in Stockholm.

– It feels great to get to the final and like I have chosen the right training. The competition gives me a push in the right direction, says David Sollén who studies the first year of the real estate brokerage program at Luleå University of Technology.

Along with Ridah Ridah who also studies the program, he reached the final in the category Broker of the Year Student. The competition is organized by Universum in cooperation with SkandiaMäklarna and will be determined at the gala in Stockholm on the 15th March. The jury consists of representatives from Universum, SkandiaMäklarna and Real Estate Agents and important criterias are ethics, selling, knowledge and personal presentation. David Sollén think his strengths will be knowledge and the selling.

– I have the benefit from former residence of business and professions. I have just begun my studies at Luleå University of Technology so what I have from the education so far is probably better discipline, since you have to plan your studies independently, he says. 

Already on the 23rd of February the semifinalists met during an inspiration day in Stockholm. 

– The competence level of the brokerage students in Sweden right now is high and we had a record number of applicants in the Broker of the Year Student. We celebrated it by inviting the candidates for the final qualification, says Christina Henriksson, Head of Talent at SkandiaMäklarna.
