Colliers International Immobilienmakler GmbH is a family business run by the third generation of the Muzicant family. It was Georg Muzicant senior who founded the company under the name of Columbus Immobilien in 1961.
The company has always put its focus on real estate services and has constantly adapted to changing market needs. This flexibility has been a key to success. The decision to join Colliers International in 1994 soon paid off.
“In the past, due to increasing globalization, the market has become a lot more international,” states Managing Director Georg Muzicant, who represents the third generation of the founder’s family. “If you want to keep up your competitiveness, it is essential to follow this development. Since we have been linked to the international Colliers network, we have doubled in size, and our customer base has changed significantly. Today, we have many international clients and Austrian firms that are keen to strengthen their business abroad. While we have been able to grow, competitors that are not linked to the network simply disappeared from the market.”
Vienna-based Colliers International Immobilienmakler GmbH has 25 employees and offers a broad portfolio covering all real estate services with a strong focus on retail investment and residential sales. Real estate occupiers, owners and investors benefit from Colliers’ service-driven approach and the company’s outstanding know-how.
Projects such as the former Generali Center in Vienna’s prestigious Mariahilfer Strasse, IZD Tower and Vienna’s Goldenes Quartier impressively mirror Colliers’ leading position. “We believe that the combination of different factors is essential for our success,” stresses Mr. Muzicant. “First of all, we have reliable, highly qualified employees. Operating as an owner-managed company offers many advantages, too. We are part of a fast-growing international network and act on a dynamic market with huge potential for real estate services. The market changes constantly and we will see who is able to follow its trends. We understand change as an opportunity and are open to upcoming challenges. We can rely on a great team and recently hired five new employees. Here, everyone is open to changes – this will help a lot to continue growing.”
