How it all began

Karl-Heinrich Müller laid the foundation for our successful development in 1958, when he established the real estate company Industrie Immobilien Müller GmbH. This long-standing company was given a huge boost in 2001, when the international corporate group Atis Real was founded and opened the doors to global consulting and professional real estate service opportunities in the most important property markets in Europe. Just three years later, the financial services provider BNP Paribas recognised our potential and invested in the company as a major shareholder. This move set the course for stability and further growth. As a logical consequence of this development, our company was given its present-day name, BNP Paribas Real Estate. Nowadays, we are proud to be one of the strongest and most prominent brands in the real estate industry while still fostering a special corporate culture ingrained with the mid-market influences that shaped our company right from the word go.

What is the secret of our success?

The stand-out characteristics of our company are its personality, team spirit and expertise, all of which are down to our long-standing staff. Our employees use their many years of experience to foster deep and reliable relationships with our clients.

Even after 60 years of working hard to achieve success for our clients, one thing’s for sure: we do not plan to slow down. In fact, we already have a multitude of new services and innovative ideas in the pipeline – making us well-equipped to continue to play a key role in the real estate market in the future. So here’s to the next 60 years!
