Every life situation and every property is unique. Therefore, my service is always tailor-made. Let’s talk about your plans and about your property, so that I can make you an offer tailored individually to your needs.
As a real estate expert and administrator, I take care of most of the issues myself. In some cases, such as a renovation or a move, I have competent partners at my side who support me in realising your goals. If you wish, there can always be only one contact person for you – that’s me.
Over more than 20 years in the real estate business, I’ve gained a wealth of experience and comprehensive know-how. Above all, it is good customer service that matters a great deal to me. I am on the spot, I am an expert and I am there for you.
Life abroad is full of new experiences and challenges. I’m happy that I can support you – and you can focus on your life abroad. I’ll gladly represent you in individual areas or across the board, entirely according to your wishes.
I take care of the communication with the tenant, the administration of the rental account, including payment reminders and the annual service charge settlement. Are you also a member of an owners’ association? Then I’ll take care of communication with the property management, check your annual accounts and, if permitted, represent you at the annual owners’ meeting.
In the search for a suitable tenant, I determine the amount of the rent and design online advertisements. I’ll conduct viewings, and after prior credit checks, suggest to you suitable candidates. You decide who will move in. I support you in concluding the tenancy agreement, take care of the deposit management, and carry out the handover of the property.
Are you planning to buy or sell a property? I will support you in finding the new property or take over the marketing of the property for you. I’ll be there for you to commission a draft purchase agreement with a notary and represent you at the notarization. I accompany you until the contract is completely settled. This includes, among others, the monitoring of purchase contract commitments and representation at the acceptance and handover of the property.
For your return I am here for you with the special return home service. New furniture will be moved in before you arrive. If you would you also like a thorough cleaning, I will be happy to take care of it. I’ll support you in registering your residence and, if necessary, arrange a temporary flat for you until you move into your own home. I will help you in choosing a moving company and will be on site to coordinate the move on the day that you move in.
For rental or your own use, I coordinate the professional renovation of your property. For bigger projects, I support you in finding the right construction management. As your representative, I make appointments with tradesmen and document the construction progress.
In Berlin it’s usually not permitted to leave a property vacant for longer than three months. I’d be happy to explain to you what needs to be considered, and take care of your vacant property.
It is important to have someone on site who can keep an overview. Especially when an emergency occurs, for example due to an insurance claim. The situation requires quick and considered action. It's good to have a trusted person on site who can act appropriately and, above all, in your best interests.
Are you looking for a service that isn’t listed here? Let’s talk about it.
My aim is to make the possession of your property easy. I’ll help you with a clear head, empathy and expertise. I am a trained businesswoman with 20 years of experience in the real estate and housing sector, a certified real estate expert and property manager with degrees from IHK and the German Real Estate Academy. For many years I worked in contract management for a property developer. I know the need for active support and the desire for a person that listens and understands, and offers individual solutions. That person is me!
With VICA I have created an offer that is specifically tailored to the needs of expats. VICA, in fact, is derived from vicaria, Latin for representative. That’s what I want to be for you: the representative for your interests and partner in all matters concerning your real estate.
Let me know what I can do for you! I’ll keep track of everything for you, so that everything is as it should be.
Sincerely, Stefanie Gurow
