Our scope of services
Our main focus is on current market valuations and mortgage lending value appraisals. We also produce court and arbitration reports and provide statements on virtually all property-related issues within our specialist areas (including reallocation, compensation and redevelopment issues). In addition, we provide consultation on property-specific topics, particularly in matters regarding inheritance, divorce and fiscal law.
Our wide-ranging, expert and independent consultancy services are built on around 40 years of experience. Our primary aim is to establish long-term client satisfaction – not merely to boost the numbers of valuations we deliver. This goal is reflected by our roster of long-standing clients, many of whom are second-generation. To reflect our high standards of valuation quality, we do not produce summary valuations.
Our long-standing clients comprise legal and accounting practices as well as numerous asset management and investment companies, banks, pension funds and insurance companies. With our team of over 30 staff and partners, we process well over 2,000 valuations in Germany and major global investment markets every year, drawing on over 20 years of experience at key European and international investment locations and an extensive bank of evaluations.
Our market expertise / Types of property
As members of various experts’ committees and producers of numerous mortgage lending value appraisals, we have extensive knowledge of local markets and a good overview of their sub-markets. In addition to all types of residential property, our appraisals primarily include office and business properties, hotels and logistics properties. However, we also offer in-depth expertise in social properties such as hospitals, and in special-use properties including airports, golf courses and redevelopment sites.
Our research / Market research
Our company has a long tradition of cutting-edge research with professional archiving and comprehensive market data collection; this forms the basis for our production of in-depth expert reports. We worked with the IIP Institute at HBC, Biberach University of Applied Sciences, and other experts’ practices to establish a research and development project aimed at furthering the professionalisation of market research and analysis and the independence of external data.
Our staff / Qualifications
But our individual staff members are our most valuable resource. With backgrounds in a wide range of professional areas (e.g. geodesics, business management, economics, architecture), they represent a broad base of interdisciplinary knowledge underpinned by a variety of qualifications. In addition to providing ongoing external continuing training, we foster talent development and hold in-house training. Two of our members are publicly appointed and sworn experts, while eight more hold individual personal certification (see also under “Experts”).
