Administrator of the year 2020: Mortensen Immobilien chooses EverReal
- Innovative IT solutions and digitalized business processes were key factors in the jury's decision
- Traditional family-owned company focuses on consistent digitization
Munich, September 15, 2020 - With the Hamburg-based company Mortensen Immobilien e. K., the VDIV honored at this year's German Property Managers' Day a company that has been working largely paperless in real estate management since 2018 and has been relying on EverReal's digital rental solution since August 2019. Among the criteria considered by the jury, which were decisive for achieving the top position, was the use of innovative IT solutions and digitalized business processes in the company, which is active in the areas of rental and commercial property management, brokerage/agency work and construction management/project development.
Mortensen Immobilien was spun off from a long-established Hamburg real estate company 30 years ago and can draw on four generations of expertise in all aspects of property management and marketing. With the last generational change five years ago, the unique opportunity arose to combine the existing know-how with the vision of a holistically digitalized real estate management. The resulting solution uses iX-Haus from Spacewell as its core system. At the same time EverReal and other innovative proptechs were integrated to improve transparency, efficiency and communication. To provide the owner with optimal information, a meaningful property and portfolio reporting system was developed in-house, which the owner can access via a portal.
"We see our Hanseatic traditions, such as seriousness and long-term business relationships, on the one hand, and the conscious use of state-of-the-art digital solutions in the area of real estate management on the other, as key factors for our business success," says Henrik Mortensen, who has been managing the family business as owner since 2015. "By using digital solutions such as EverReal, we significantly reduce our administrative workload. At the same time, we can offer our owners, tenants and prospective tenants not only a modern appearance and professional communication, but also a level of service that cannot be achieved without digital solutions".
One of the opportunities offered by EverReal, which is of particular importance for Mortensen Immobilien, is the largely digitalized rental process. All major sub-processes from marketing to prospect management, including smart tenant matching and applicant management are almost completely digital.
In addition to EverReal, Mortensen Immobilien also uses other innovative software solutions such as Casavi, and sees this as an essential basis for the scaling of its business and the further growth of the company.
"We are very pleased that VDIV has awarded Mortensen Immobilien the title of Administrator of the Year and thus above all honored the company's consistent digitization strategy," says Nessim Djerboua, co-founder and CEO of EverReal. "This example is a particularly impressive demonstration of how even comparatively small companies can succeed in achieving a strong competitive position through the use of modern, efficient software solutions, and how they can positively distinguish themselves in the market from less innovative companies".
