Mission statement

The Peach Property Group is a real estate investor with an investment focus on residential rental properties in Germany. The Group stands for many years of experience, competence and quality. Innovative solutions for state-of-the-art living needs, strong partnerships and a broad value chain round off the profile. The portfolio consists of high-yield portfolio properties, typically in B-cities in the catchment area of conurbations. Our operations are focused on providing affordable and modern living spaces with tenant satisfaction representing our top priority. We achieve this through an emphasis on service delivery, continuous dialogue and communication with tenants, and targeted measures aimed at constantly improving the living quality on offer, as well as the surroundings.

In addition, the Group develops real estate for its own portfolio or for condominium marketing. In the latter area, the Group concentrates on A locations and properties with attractive architecture and upscale furnishings for an international clientele. Its activities span the entire value chain from evaluating locations through to acquisitions and also active asset management and property sales or lettings.
