As the capital of Austria, as well as a bridgehead for Central and Eastern Europe, Vienna was the place to go for Christie & Co when we expanded into Austria. Our Vienna office has a team of four highly motivated professionals with expertise in the real estate and tourism industries.
By selling more hotels than any of our competitors over the past three years we have established ourselves as Austria’s no. 1 hotel property advisor and broker. In addition to our core areas of expertise, market conditions have also increased demand for our bank support and business recovery services and we have been handling an increasing number of assignments in these fields in Austria. The team in Vienna has sold numerous businesses over recent years, varying in size and type; from resorts and budget hotels based in the city to spa and wellness hotels in more urban areas. We also frequently advise domestic banks and lenders with their exposure in Austria & CEE. Major transactions brokered by the Vienna office include:
