Of course, we are not only working for big names. It is much more important to us customers recommend us to others. And at 100 percent.
We work on varying sizes and types of deals: sometimes larger, sometimes less great, but always challenging. To be clear, we would not receive mandates, if it were easy. How many transactions have we actually worked on in almost 50 years, we can not honestly say. In a developed market, the opportunities have narrowed a bit, but the opportunities that do exist are good ones and this will not change anytime soon.
A long-standing client, a residential real estate company operating throughout Germany, again exclusively mandated us to broker a selected portfolio and carry out the transaction process. The property package in Saarbruecken with 220 residential units, divided into 5 properties and a living space of 14,560 sqm offered a solid and stable cash flow, but also potential for rental growth and development. The buyer of the portfolio is an investor from the Rhine-Main region who will transferred the properties into a special AIF.
In cooperation with Invariant Immobilien & Consulting GmbH, we brokered this office property in the Berlin industrial park ‘Pankow-Park’ to a regional architectural office. The property with approx. 7,825 sqm total area was built in 1997 by ABB for own use on the former production site of Bergmann-Borsi. There existed a leasehold contract which was terminated in the course of the sale. Due to the special contractual requirements, the transaction process took a year and a half. Together with our cooperation partner, we provided intensive support to both buyers and sellers.
The 50,000 sqm commercial area on Fabrikstraße has a long tradition, which began with the foundation of Elektroarmaturenwerk JWH (later: VEB Hochspannungs-Armaturenwerk (HAW)). Under an exclusive commision from the RIBE® Group, we have now brokered the industrial and commercial park in Radebeul near Dresden, to a project developer. For the 12 buildings built between 1916 and 1985, of which the office and administration building is a listed building is plans a revitalization.
For the previous owner of this property, a real estate investor and asset manager active throughout Germany, we have already successfully fulfilled many mandates. With the brokerage of the almost fully rented residential complex in Delmenhorst-Deichhorst with 33 units to a real estate company for a special AIF housing fund located in North Germany, we completed the fifth deal within one year.
On behalf of a private owner in Dusseldorf, we brokered an 1995 built apartment house with 24 condominium. The well-kept property in the district of Großziethen in Schoenefeld, near Berlin, is fully rented and has approx. 1,233 sqm of total space. The buyer of the apartment house is a private investment company, which has also entrusted us with the asset management of the property.
A Baden-Wurttemberg fund company exclusively mandated us to place on market a larger Portfolio. It consists of mixed-use retail properties mainly located in the new federal states. We took up the challenge and found a buyer for eight properties in the course of the year. This prestigious residential and commercial building in the city centre of Crimmitschau (Zwickau district) with Deutsche Bank as anchor tenant was brokered to a financial and insurance service provider from Erfurt.
Because of the active networking of the Stuttgart regional office, we were able to establish the contact with a private owner through a tax consulting firm, who wanted to sell a residential complex, consisting of two multi family houses with fifteen 1- and 2-room apartments in the Dresden district Cossebaude. On the basis of an appraisal and numerous reference properties, we were awarded the exclusive contract for marketing. We found a local private investor for the fully leased property, which was already divided into apartments in accordance with the Residential Property Act (WEG).
For a Lower-Saxony project developer, we identified a few selected investors for a ‘Courtyard by Marriott’ hotel project with 152 rooms on Lake Allersee in Wolfsburg as part of a discreet market approach. Thanks to our special hotel expertise, in conjunction with a very good access to family offices, we were able to bring the transaction to a successful conclusion after intensive negotiations. An Indian hotelier family has acquired the Allerpark Hotel for a double-digit million euro amount and expanding with this transaction their hotel portfolio in Germany.
For a large portfolio manager and owner-occupier, for whom we have already realized transactions successful, we were able to sell an office building in Dusseldorf for a top price. The approx. 9,000 sqm and imposing property in the best city location has been purchased by a project developer who will redevelop the attractive property. For the previous user we were able to find a new location in Dusseldorf.
On the basis of a property valuation and sales recommendation, we received the exclusive order from the London investment manager Catalyst Capital LLP to market the office and commercial building in central downtown Recklinghausen. The property was part of a Luxembourg fund. With a private investor from the region, we found the right buyer for the approx. 3,200 sqm property, which was built in the 1980s and is mainly used by doctors and service providers from the medical sector. The solidity of the tenants, a WALT of just under 6 years as well as given optimisation potential and an attractive yield convinced the investor.
On behalf of a Dutch project developer, we marketed a new building project with student apartments at the university location Golm in Potsdam to Mondial Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft. By the end of 2018, more than 400 single and 8 double apartments will be built on the approximately 16,864 sqm plot. The buyer will contribute the new construction project to its open special AIF campusfonds Deutschland I.
For a family office, we have found with an “off-market sale” a suitable buyer for this fully let, listed office and business building not far from the high-frequency Mittelstrasse. A family-owned company from the region has secured the 1,316 sqm property, which was completely renovated in 2013/2014, for its own portfolio build-up.
