...and this business takes off
Bendzko already has several employees, and the side job grows into a company. It specializes in a form of real estate ownership that is largely unknown in Germany at the time: Privately owned apartments.
...and this business takes off
1968
The first building
Bendzko Immobilien acquires the building at Goethestraße 25 in the Charlottenburg area of Berlin. The newly created privately owned apartments are quickly sold.

‘Buy don’t rent’ – tenants become owners
Apartment ownership is a growing trend. More buildings are acquired in Berlin and in Hamburg. Over the next years, more than a hundred commonhold associations are established.

'Land is better than a savings account' – the success model
Many more residential complexes are turned into privately owned apartments. The former tenants are now protected from rent rises, and small private investors use the affordable real estate to establish a retirement fund.

Location, location, location: Kurfürstendamm 16
The logical step for a real estate company: its own building. The company moves into Bendzko House, located in what was then and still is the fashionable area between Kranzler-Eck and the Memorial Church.
