How it all began

Karl-Heinrich Müller laid the foundations when he established Industrie Immobilien Müller GmbH in Düsseldorf in 1958. The company’s calibre was upgraded with the establishment of the international group Atis Real in 2001, enabling global consulting and professional property services in the leading European property markets. Just three years later, financial services provider BNP Paribas became the principal shareholder in the group, thus paving the way for stability and further growth. As a logical consequence of this development, the group was renamed BNP Paribas Real Estate. Today, we are one of the best-known and strongest brands in the property sector. At the same time, our special corporate culture continues to be shaped by our origins as a mid-tier business.

What is the secret behind our success?

Our defining characteristics are personality, team spirit and know-how – these derive from our staff, whose long-standing service with the company provides the basis for close and dependable relations with our customers.

Even with 60 years of success to our name, easing up and resting on our laurels is not an option. With new services and innovative ideas, we will continue to play a key role in the property market in the future. So here’s to the next 60 years!
