Rustler Sytria with a new team leader


The Graz metropolitan area is currently recording the strongest population growth in Austria. The resulting need for housing and the uninterrupted new building campaign are one of the reasons that the real estate service provider Rustler has grown steadily in this dynamic environment. The team around branch manager Georg Habersatter already has over 20 employees and covers all ser-vices in the management of real estate in Styria.

Taking care of condominium is one of the most important and central areas of business. The smooth operation, professional cost management and sustainable preservation of the value of the properties are key issues for the property management team at Rustler Styria, for which Michaela Jaklitsch (30) is now responsible as the new team leader for condominium. The experienced prop-erty manager moved to Rustler in 2019.

"We are pleased that Michaela Jaklitsch has developed into a leading manager and will help shape our further expansion in the Styrian real estate market," explains branch manager Georg Habersat-ter.

Rustler Tyrol - Successful apartment building sale in a prime location in Innsbruck


In the spring of this year, the real estate company of Rustler was commissioned with the exclusive exploitation of a historic apartment building from private hands.

Within a few weeks, this property in Innsbruck's prime location was successfully placed with a Tyrolean investor and real estate developer. It was agreed not to disclose the purchase price, but the seller's purchase price expectations were exceeded.


"Thanks to the structured process and our portfolio of investment customers, the apartment building was able to be sold quickly and successfully", says the branch manager of Rustler Tirol, Gerhard Hauer, happily.

"The deal creates additional synergies, as we can continue to support both contractual partners in real estate management", adds Rustler real estate agent Werner Vorauer.

With this brokerage, Rustler is continuing the successful management of investment properties on the domestic real estate market and has been able to position itself increasingly on the Tyrolean market in recent years.

Another residential building project by Rustler in Vienna Liesing successfully exploited


After several successfully completed residential construction projects in the neighboring district of Vienna Meidling, the property developer Rustler started with two in-house developments in Liesing. After the first project in Franz-Heider-Gasse 10 was recently handed over to the new owners after completion, the sale in Löwenthalgasse 23 took place even faster. The last apartment in the so-called "Twenty3" found its buyer six months before completion.

“The project also impressed our customers with the size of the building, since with a total of 14 apartments it is a comparatively small and easily manageable property for future residents,” says Rustler real estate agent Alissa Oppitzhauser about her experiences with the interested parties. In this way, the project fits perfectly into the partially rural-looking environment.

"Despite the location on the outskirts of the city, Liesing train station as a traffic junction and the Riverside shopping center can be reached in just three minutes on foot," added the authorized signatory of the Rustler property developer, Alexandra Neumann-Hanns, to the customers' motives for buying.

Rustler Upper Austria with new office in Linz City Tower


The Rustler Group opened its Linz branch around 10 years ago and provides real estate services on the Upper Austrian market.

10th Anniversary for Rustler Real Estate at the Mödling branch


For 10 years now Rustler has been active with a broker location in Mödling and was able to quickly establish a high reputation and market presence. At the end of 2018, a new, larger and centrally located location in the immediate vicinity of the pedestrian zone in the city centre of Mödling was selected and designed as a “street office”.

“Due to the optimal location of our office and the continuous opening hours from Monday to Friday, our location can be visited by interested buyers and sellers and used for customer appointments”, reports team leader Daniela Andre-Simonnet (46), who has been working for Rustler since 2013 and played a key role in setting up activities in southern suburbs of Vienna.

The Rustler team at the Mödling branch currently has five employees. Last year, they managed around 100 purchase and rental transactions and brokered all types of real estate, from apartments and single or multi-family houses to office space and commercial properties.

From the advance notices to the settlement – Rustler relieves real estate developers and self-managers


With its commercial management, the Rustler property management offers a special service for real estate developers or owners who want to outsource only parts of the property management.

“We are pursuing the goal of relieving property owners, who basically manage their properties themselves, in the area of real estate accounting”,  comments Walter Seierl, the authorized signatory of the Rustler property management, explaining the benefits of the service.

Communication with tenants or flat owners continues to take place in the name of the respective property owner or client. “The client’s logos are automatically taken over, and, if desired, they can also be sent via accounts of the respective client”, Seierl continues. Rustler thus takes a back seat as a service provider.

Support for real estate developers and owners is provided within the framework of this “commercial management”, for example in the areas of advance notices and reminders, operating cost statements, posting of account statements, payments and posting of incoming invoices, as well as the value assurance of rents.
