Issue 4/12 of the AIZ real estate magazine, the journal of the German Real Estate Industry Confederation (IVD), focuses on retail real estate, and examines the importance to real estate agents in Germany of having their own premises.
According to the Confederation, Porta Mondial provides its franchise partners a model solution in this regard, and it is introduced in the magazine as a Best Practice example:
Estate agency concepts for estate agents
More and more real estate providers are choosing to locate their office in a premises with window frontage. Their aim is to be seen better. The Portal Mondial real estate franchise company has developed a modular, inexpensive fit-out system with which the design and organisation-related balance between transparency and discretion, and between focused work and representation can be achieved.”
If one looks at the individual estate agencies in Germany, one sees that, because of the modular structure, every architectural peculiarity can be accommodated, without neglecting the brand character.
Originally developed for the German market, the Porta Mondial estate agency concept was adapted as a global concept because of its huge success and the high level of acceptance amongst our partners. The first shop with the international design was Porta Tenerife in Puerto de la Cruz.
At present three more estate agencies in Majorca in Puerto Andratx, Santa Ponsa and Santanyí are being fitted-out in line with the Porta Mondial design and their opening is planned for summer 2012.
