“We should seize big data as an opportunity,” emphasised Jeckstaedt. “This can mean creating more transparency for our work through new ways of providing services,” said Jeckstaedt.
The property expert is also seeing changes in the capital itself. “In Berlin especially, tenants and buyers are starting to focus on new districts and areas. With people relocating to the outskirts and commuting on the rise, the capital is undergoing a development that we are seeing in a lot of German cities.”
Jeckstaedt comes from the Austrian Rustler Group, where he was most recently the managing director of Rustler Immobilien GmbH, and therefore has years of experience on the Berlin real estate market. Prior to that, Jeckstaedt held various management positions in the DKB Group and the ASA Group. In addition to his particular expertise in residential housing, he also has experience of acquisitions of – even very large – housing portfolios.
A Berlin native, he studied law at the Free University of Berlin and successfully completed his studies with his second state examination after his internship in 1996. Jeckstaedt is the author of numerous publications on residential property, including the manual “Die Eigentümerversammlung” published by Grundeigentum-Verlag.
