Your partner for retail investment

Creating value

About Blank Real Estate

We are experts in providing sound and successful transaction advice for German-speaking countries. We specialise in the marketing of high-yield retail properties such as supermarkets, hypermarkets, retail parks and DIY stores.

We have worked with a well-established international network of owners, developers and capital partners for over ten years. A fundamental part of our success has been the creation of long-term partnerships with sellers and investors based on mutual trust.

Our Philosophy

We create value by identifying the needs of interested parties and tailoring the buying and selling processes accordingly. We do this creatively, transparently and with a focus on results, but always keeping in mind the bigger picture – for all of the parties involved.

The question as to what businesses and individuals can contribute to make a positive impact on an increasingly complex world inspired Johannes Blank to initiate a symposium in July 2015 entitled: Individual Responsibility - The Basis of a Fulfilled Life and a Supportive Community, which attracted several eminent speakers.
