How do we work?

We make your ideas reality

Everyone has a different idea of their perfect property. At GATE Berlin we aim to fully understand your needs and aspirations.

Before we start our search, we agree on a detailed brief so we have a clear picture of your requirements and priorities. We check the possibility to accomplish and then start the search in your identified area, using our network of property professionals, private owners, attorneys, property managers, auctioneers and our specialist software to ensure we always get to see the best properties, often before they even come onto the market.

Only once our previews are complete, we short-list several potential properties and analyse their individual benefits and pitfalls. We also provide advice in relation to valuation, investment, planning, development, fit out and any other relevant support services and here our role goes beyond the services delivered by other search agents.

Our appraisal process ensures our clients receive maximum value for their purchases and fully understand the implications of every transaction they undertake. You will receive detailed information and videos of suitable properties in our log-in content management system.

What kind of investment strategies does GATE Berlin support?

As well as securing real estate per every investor’s unique risk profile – be it Core, Core+, Value added or Opportunistic – we also advise on how to source, implement and maintain philanthropic investments, supporting communities or charitable causes.

For those who wish to support good living conditions for the long term tenant and/or maintain and increase value, we have overseen building and refurbishment projects or optimize the energy efficiency of buildings.

What clients are we working with?

Our clients include, German and foreign based private clients, institutional investors, local and international corporations and government organisations.

We also work with HNWI (high net worth individuals), family offices, foundations, trusts, individuals in the public eye (entertainment industry, sport professionals, nobility), aiming for as much privacy as possible in their property acquisitions. We liaise with them or their elected representative and work discreetly to find and secure property, ensuring this to always be a seamless process, whilst fully complying with their tax and legal obligations. We also assist to obtain relevant visa if required.

Development Advisory Services

GATE Berlin provides a bespoke development advisory service to clients. Being active in the market, we can assist clients identify the best use or combination of uses for a site or building and provide formal valuations of land and property before and after a development with our long-standing partners.

We advise on the selection of appropriate architects for the development and provide our client and the architect with details of buyer’s requirements for the development and the likely rental and total value when completed.
