Handelsblatt Top Beratung 2023

Best property performance – for satisfied stakeholders.

Optimal property management is a key success factor for real estate investors. RITTERWALD supports property managers regarding strategy, inorganic growth and operational excellence.

National and international real estate investors need property management partners who not only have superior on-site knowledge and regional service provider networks. In a market driven by digitalisation and professionalisation, scalable and digitalised business models are in demand. These models need to satisfy the needs of property owners and investors for efficient management, tenant satisfaction, transparency and flexibility.

Based on extensive industry experience, RITTERWALD supports Property Management companies in organic and inorganic measures. We analyse organisational structures, staff capacities and processes to identify efficiencies in operational management and IT landscapes for a tailor-made company setting. We review property management mandates and remuneration in order to classify their attractivity.

Distinct M&A know-how makes RITTERWALD an energetic partner for strategic corporate transactions - from the preparation of a longlist and target approach, through due diligence and valuation, to purchase price negotiation, signing, closing and post-merger integration. For long-lasting success, we keep an eye on the potential of dynamic changes such as new real estate concepts and services and derive the implications of regulatory changes.
