The Company

Size has never been a goal, performance is a daily ambition.

The vision that led to the formation of the company in 2013 cannot be more clearly described than with the brand BOHNZIRLEWAGEN: after thirteen years of personal collaboration, two experienced, successful partners of a leading real estate service provider decide to pursue their shared passion. Thomas BOHN and Jörg ZIRLEWAGEN want to be entrepreneurs and consultants. They again want to be directly and personally involved in projects again, assume responsibility immediately at the client’s side and create results, from development through to realization. Not least because of its hand-picked team, the business in Munich is successful from day one.

The Berlin branch was established in 2016, the Düsseldorf branch in 2018 and the Hamburg branch in 2019. The vision is consistently further developed and placed on a broader foundation.
