Walter Property is a commercial real estate brokerage located in Germany specialized in opportunistic real estate products. We broker off-market opportunities and advise on real estate transactions across changing economic environments and evolving market cycles in A, B, and C locations across Western & Eastern Europe. Our clients are investors with opportunistic risk/return profiles, as well as property owners and developers pursuing different strategic or financial goals.
Walter Property was founded in 2014 by Raphael Walter, a native of Geneva with a legal background and private equity industry experience. Since 2005, Raphael Walter advised Middle East private equity funds and was a dialogue partner to ultimate corporate shareholders. He structured transactions and led complex negotiations on C-level in context of equity and debt-oriented investments into real estate, including corporate recapitalization and restructuring throughout EU, CEE and CIS regions.
We broker opportunities with potential for value enhancement rather than immediate cash-flow. We cover all real estate classes, including office, retail, logistics, multi-family, hotel, and healthcare in markets across Western & Eastern Europe. Our strong industry network enables us to uncover hidden, dormant and exclusive opportunities. Privately negotiated transactions lead to more favourable pricing, more flexible negotiations and better investment returns while providing sellers with a higher certainty of closing. Opportunistic real estate products include:
Technically Distressed Properties
Properties requiring repositioning or with potential for conversion into different types and classes
Financially Distressed Properties
Properties with unsustainable capital structures, high vacancy rates and/or prior mismanagement
Equity & Debt Financing
Equity & debt financing of developments with inadequate funding structures and/or in context of recapitalization
Debt and equity facilities from banks or alternative lenders including non-performing loans
