Marketing film

To market the IM GUSS project, we opened our doors to a 20 Minuten film crew.

For our “IM GUSS” marketing project in Bülach, our letting management team hit upon a special idea. A mini-series was filmed in the furnished show apartment with a professional 20 Minuten film crew. This new "Ämtliplan" web series focuses on a residential community. Property marketing can be truly creative!

View the series and the IM GUSS film set here:

A big thank you and bravo to all concerned!

Enjoy your streaming!

“I enjoy taking on more responsibility”

Fabio Fiore (16) is completing his second apprenticeship year at PRIVERA AG; he aims to pass the Swiss Federal property/fiduciary specialist’s certificate. He reports regularly to the Der Bund and Berner Zeitung newspapers on his daily professional experience and on his education.

“In the present situation, I’m working entirely in my home office. Each week I have a video conference with the other apprentices and our professional trainer in which we discuss everything that is going on and our new challenges. So I enjoy super support, for which I am truly grateful!  Teaching in the vocational school is also virtual. I like video conference tuition best.

The circumstances bring new opportunities: I now look after the property owner whose accounts I keep much more independently – I find that awesome! I enjoy the opportunity to take on greater responsibility”.

The complete report was published on 24.04.2020 in the Der Bund and Berner Zeitung newspapers in cooperation with ImmoFuture (SVIT Bern). Read the full reports here:

How PRIVERA is working in lockdown

Even in the COVID19 pandemic lockdown, PRIVERA is not short of ideas and team spirit for its customers.

During the current pandemic and the more stringent measures imposed by the authorities, all PRIVERA staff are working in their home office until further notice. Our modern IT infrastructure enables this to go ahead smoothly. Our dedication to handling customers’ needs and our team spirit remain unchanged.

By way of proof, here are the selfies taken by some of our employees at their work stations (see above).

We continue to arrange outside appointments for property inspections and handovers, viewings and warranty inspections. With 360° images of the apartments, our team  assures smooth property viewings for potential customers in their own homes too.

We thank our employees for their dedication and our customers, tenants and partner companies for their confidence in us.

We donate fruit baskets to hospitals

Fruit baskets are delivered weekly to PRIVERA’S Gümligen and Wallisellen branches. It donates them to local hospitals.

The ongoing coronavirus lockdown is a great challenge to all of us. PRIVERA is currently working entirely on a home office basis (see previous contributions). That is why we are donating the fruit baskets delivered weekly to our Gümligen and Wallisellen branches to local hospitals. Fruit from Gümligen goes to the adult emergency ward at Bern Insel Hospital, while the Wallisellen delivery is passed on to the maternity clinic at Zurich University Hospital.

Just a small thank you for the enormous dedication of everyone working in the healthcare sector in this challenging situation for us all! The local teams have even sent us a few snapshots showing the donated baskets:

We wish them a well-earned break.
