CLOSE TO THE PULSE

PropTalk is the first podcast aimed specifically at real estate professionals. We talk to prominent representatives of the real estate industry about the relevant topics driving the market. Bricks, money, digitization – any industry-related subject goes. Listen in on the discussion!

#11 –As editor-in-chief of Immobilien Zeitung, Brigitte Mallmann-Bansa is one thing above all else: feared by junior PR professionals up and down Germany. But you’d never guess that from her charming answers to PropTalk’s questions about media in the digital age, critical real estate journalism and, of course, handball. And she also shares a few tips on how real estate companies can build a constructive relationship with Immobilien Zeitung.

#10 –Hans Volkert Volckens is usually called upon when a client needs a partner to provide guidance and support in particularly complex or challenging situations. And that’s exactly what we wanted as our PropTalk podcast hits double digits. Join us for an exciting conversation about the ups and downs of the real estate industry.

#9 –Walls that measure the CO2 content of the air? Ceilings that provide daylight? Cameras that analyse the use of space? For Commerz Real, these are not gimmicks, they are integral components of the technological innovations that are shaping the future of office space. We caught up with Jens Böhnlein, Global Head of Office, at Digitalwerk in Wiesbaden.

#8 –Martin Rodeck highlights the potential of intelligent buildings. Everyone in the real estate industry has at least heard of Edge. And if you don’t know much about this developer, you at least know its German boss: Martin Rodeck is more closely associated with the term innovation in the real estate industry than almost anyone else. Reason enough to ask him questions in our latest PropTalk podcast.

#7 – Wolfgang Schäfers, owner of the real estate management department of the IREBS, is not only doctoral advisor for half the real estate industry, but also a successful triathlete. He has acquired the condition of research, teaching and business in many years. Reason enough to ask him some curious questions.

#6 – On a cloudy and rainy November day, Claudia Nagel stood with her hands full in front of a closed door. A small child in her arms came up with an idea. Why do we still need keys today? That’s how Kiwi was born – and the rest is history. One of the stories of our new PropTalk episode.

#5 – Alexander Ubach-Utermöhl, founder of blackprintpartners and chairman of the German PropTech Initiative, is first and foremost a family father. At least that is what he tells us in the newest episode of PropTalk. But of course, we also talked about the one big challenge currently moving our industry: digitization

#4 – For years, rents and prices have only known one direction. And still, low interest rates, the search for save havens and the lack of alternatives drive yet more investors into concrete gold. But how long can this go on? We asked Prof. Dr. Thomas Beyerle, Head of Group Research at Catella, to have a private conversation with us.

#3 – Regulated rental prices, rent caps, share deal bans – German legislators seem to aim at a constant regulation of the real estate market. We talk about this issue with Dr. Andreas Mattner, President of the German Property Federation (ZIA), the umbrella association of the German real estate industry.

#2 – What kind of growth should start-ups seek? How does internationalization come into play? And do we need it at all? These and other topics were discussed by #PropTalk-Moderator Andy Dietrich with Dr. Thomas Herr, Head of Digital Innovation EMEA at CBRE.

#1 – Start up the Dream – Andy Dietrich, CEO of Strategiekollegen, and Sascha Donner, CIPO of EVANA, talk about typical mistakes and opportunities involved in the foundation of PropTechs.
