Real estate acquisition
To find the property of your dreams requires well-founded understanding of the offering, the market and its particularities. In the international comparison, the pricing structure is very high, especially for luxury properties. In particular, St. Moritz-Suvretta is among the top 10 most expensive luxury addresses world-wide.
The legal framework, such as the limitation of secondary homes (Lex Weber), primary homes with the requirement of residency or the limitation of the sale of properties to foreigners (Lex Koller) pose additional complexities.
We ensure you are professionally assisted, gain the necessary overview and transparency and we represent your best interests. To gain a maximum of overview and certainty, you need competent, interdisciplinary and professional advice. Solid solutions are based on well-founded, reliable research and analysis.

Real estate development
We develop real estate on our own account and for the account of our clients. Therefore, for our clients but also for ourselves, we are always looking for interesting projects (land, commercial and residential real estate) with potential for development. Offers can be submitted by mail, email or phone call.
At the beginning of each construction project there is an idea - a dream. As experienced investors, we know well what it takes to develop top real estate projects, within and outside the construction zone.
We create the basis on which great ideas can become successful projects.
Together with you we develop and elaborate the project, evaluate the relevant requirements and plan the implementation. We prepare all assessments, entrepreneurial decisions, schedules and other procedures prior to construction and implement them together with you.
In this process you benefit from our professional know-how in construction as well as from our profound experience in the development of complex building projects. Besides our own know-how we work with a network of first class and tested partners from which we can select the best-qualified experts for each project.

Real estate marketing
The most important elements of a successful sale of a property are a solid marketing strategy and a first-class network of partners. Due to the increasing internationalization of the real estate buyers in the Engadin, a network, which goes beyond the country boarders becomes increasingly important.
Due to our extensive experience with international clients and intensive collaboration with international partners we are best equipped for this. We shall be pleased to put at your disposal our first class local, national and international network for the marketing of your property.
