Do you own a property? The way real estate is managed and administered has a significant impact on the atmosphere in the building and the satisfaction of the residents. Every sale is groundbreaking for the flexibility of future management and refinancing. We are happy to advise you in the context of a sale, so that your property remains in good hands and your interests align with those of the tenants.
You can get an impression of success stories and possible ways of a sale in the brochure "Gemeinsam Verantwortungsvoll Handeln" (Acting Responsibly Together), which we have compiled in cooperation with the mediation and advice center Häuser Bewegen.
Would you like free information or advice?
Please feel free to send us an email to gi.aks(at)gemeinwohl.berlin

The Gemeinwohlorientierte Stadtentwicklung e.V. - or short GemeinwohlStadt e.V. - is on the one hand core strucure of AKS Gemeinwohl. This means that the members can actively shape the work of the AKS team. For the year 2023, for example, building bridges between urban policy and climate movement was chosen as the main topic. In the general meetings, topics and needs can be brought to the attention of the AKS team.
In addition, the organization is primarily intended to serve as a platform for the networking of people interested in and committed to urban politics. You can exchange information with other initiatives on topics that are currently being worked on, in order to form alliances if necessary. AGs or action groups can be founded if there is a need to further work on certain topics. There is an organization coordinator, which supports the planning and realization of meetings or events.
If you have questions about the organization, if you want to join or just want to get in touch, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
