Eco Invest

  • Multi-tenant real estate portfolio in top locations

  • Doubling the properties’ value within 3 years

Our investment strategy focusses on the prime locations of the German office space market. We were able to double the value of the properties entrusted to us within 3 years. This appreciation is based on the significant increase of our portfolio’s rental income, and corresponding re-evaluations performed by banks.

We realise our results through strategic lease negotiations, a reduction of ancillary costs, and structural optimisations. Our achievements are possible thanks to strategic contributions by all teams of the ECO Group.

Eco Facility

  • Many of our ECO facility managers are master craftspeople

  • Our ECO vehicles are mobile workshops, equipped with high-end tools

  • The software IX-Haus plus provides for a transparent overview, effective order acceptance, and quick handling of any damages

Our facility management vehicles are state-of-the-art workshops on wheels featuring first-rate tools (e.g. by HILTI) and sophisticated cleaning machines such as the i-Mop XL. This equipment is highly resource efficient, reducing the required working time while protecting the environment.

Modern tools combined with our facility managers’ technical know-how enable us to take care of small and medium-sized repair, modernisation, and maintenance jobs ourselves – quickly, flexibly, and at any time.

i-Mop XL

In practical use we have found the area performance to be 3 to 6 times greater than that achieved with two-stage wet mopping.

SUSTAINABLE TECHNOLOGY

  • Operating costs are reduced by 20 to 30 %, thanks to energy monitoring paired with progressive and sustainable technology

Minimally invasive measures that require no capital investment enable us to reduce the operating costs of any building by up to 10 %.

Costs may even be reduced by as much as 20 to 30 %, if a weather module is used. The related investment costs are usually offset within four to six years.

Our ECO software system plays a central role, also when it comes to energy monitoring. ECO monitoring provides for energy consumption to be tracked, allowing for excessive electricity consumers to be identified and eliminated.

Eco Tax

  • Among the top 2 % of tax consultants working digitally in Germany

  • Specialist real estate tax consultants

  • Cost efficient – our tax consultants are also property managers. Double entries are avoided.

According to DATEV eG, we are among the top 2 % of German tax consultants working fully digitally. Our tax team of currently around 20 staff members comprises certified tax consultants for real estate taxation and property management (ISM / IFU gGmbH), as well as specialist consultants for international tax law.

The ECO Group’s full digitisation is reflected in a perfect integration of property management, tax and document management software. Our property managers are specialised real estate tax consultants and are authorised to transfer exemplary ancillary cost statements from the property management software directly to the tax office. This enables our customers to avoid additional costs due to double accounting or double entries.

Officially appointed tax consultants take responsibility for any tasks reserved for authorised professionals.

Eco Property

  • FM & PM are using multiple award-winning cloud-based software featuring a very high degree of automation

  • Digitisation of all ECO teams provides for a higher level of tenant satisfaction (IX-Haus, IX-Haus plus, DATEV, and DocuWare)

  • High degree of compliance

Computer Aided Facility Management (specialised CAFM software) facilitates the planning, documentation, and management of commercially used premises and real estate. We use state-of-the-art market-leading software (IX-Haus, IX Haus plus, DATEV, and DocuWare) to provide the basis for our high quality and performance standards.

The same cloud-based database is used by all teams of the ECO Group. We focus on digital

communication and workflows. The interface of our PM software (IX-Haus) allows for data to be transferred to the tax software (DATEV), rendering external accounting activities unnecessary. The supplementary ticket software IX-Haus plus provides for a transparent overview, effective order acceptance, and quick handling of any damages. In addition to this, it also improves digital monitoring of statutory deadlines, such as review and maintenance duties.
