x 1000.


We believe in progress.


We believe in progress.

In today’s real estate market you can achieve progress by working together more openly, positively and constructively. We work for both owners and users of real estate. We do not see this as a clash of interests but simply as an opportunity. Progress is based on exploring new pathways together, finding common interests, setting ambitious targets and achieving resounding results. No progress without deviation.

More about our beliefs


We are what we do. As strategic real estate experts we are active in five core areas: advice on project development, advice for real estate owners, advice for real estate users, project management and mediation. But just as important for us is our belief in the way we tackle the job at hand. The three key words that define our approach are: positivity, equality and authenticity.


This is the way we look at the world. At the business, ourselves, our partners, our clients and colleagues. Personal, open and enthusiastic are words that describe us well and that we willingly advocate. Three other words are committed, involved and independent!



For us, this refers to various things. We are not all the same and we do not have to be!  Everyone is different. For us equality means being aware of what is important for all of us. Where do things differ but also where do they overlap? It is all about common values.


By critical we mean that we make clear judgements without any prejudices. We stay true to ourselves but also to others. Look at it from a different angle. Help our clients not only with words of advice but also with actions. Take a robust and decisive stance. Decisive and forward looking. What does our strategic real estate advice ultimately deliver? Development, progress and added value.


We love development.

What we do.

As a strategic real estate expert Dev_ real estate can provide knowledge, know-how and extensive experience in five core areas: project development, advice for real estate owners, advice for real estate users, project management and mediation.

More about the five key areas of Dev_real estate

What does this lead to? An improved work environment and an increase in productivity. In short: greater efficiency and happier employees.

4. Project management

Dev_ real estate has its own vision on project management. We start by giving advice but love to realise it as well! Our key success factors: a well set up organisational structure and a strong sense of leadership leading to positive decision making. With committed consultants whose expertise allows our clients to keep control of the whole project. What does this lead to? Implementing the project on time and within budget, while achieving all of the quality criteria.

Dev_ real estate offers its clients advice and guidance on:

  • process and project management
  • programme management
  • interim project management
  • crisis management
  • management of building costs
  • tendering and drawing up contracts

5. Mediation

Mediation is a form of conciliation in conflicts. First the MfN register mediator of Dev_ real estate clearly visualises the interests of both parties and then guides the communication between them. For what reason? To reach a joint agreement. Faster, cheaper and simpler than legal procedures. Focused on the solution, maintaining the relationship and therefore forward-looking.

Dev_ mediation can be used in negotiations and conflicts, where it is no longer possible to settle without an independent third party. Mediation can help as a catalyst for business, construction and real estate related conflicts.

Mediation fits perfectly within the beliefs of Dev_ real estate:

  • we are independent and work for both owners and users
  • we are positively critical in everything we do and are particularly focused on cooperation
  • we rather pay attention to interests than positions
  • we can contribute our specific knowledge and extensive experience in building processes to get to a jointly supported solution through mediation.
