Real Estate Consultant
As a real estate consultant, your aim is to find the right office and commercial space for the right customer. You carry out negotiations with the property owners that lead to the lease agreement and monitor the development measures until the property is ready for use. You work directly with the site management and are able to read development plans. You also take care of the existing properties and existing rental contracts, for example, when it comes to optimising and adjusting contractual terms and conditions. You either work as an employee in the contracting company or work on projects for a project development company.
As an asset manager, you take care of the organisation and management of all matters relating to a property. You are at the strategic property level and therefore work for investment and portfolio management. You are responsible for looking after real estate investments from the perspective of investors, and you are the first point of contact for them. Investors often have a clear goal in mind for their real estate, e.g., a quick rental, a quick sale, or a long-term investment. Since you advise property owners professionally on their goals, as an asset manager you always follow market developments and think long-term.
Corporate Real Estate Manager
In corporate real estate management, you are responsible for the success-oriented procurement, administration, and marketing of commercial real estate. If the focus is on profit maximisation, it is your job to identify and realise potential for value growth in properties that are not required for business operations. With operationally necessary properties, you analyse the potential for cost savings. You see real estate as an object of value or use and as a strategic resource. For new locations to be developed, you find the optimum between the lowest possible vacancy rate, expandability, and adaptability to any changes in the company. Your goal is to minimise real estate costs in the long term and to avoid real estate investments that do not meet the expectations for use or returns.
