Congratulations to the vdp's oldest subsidiary
The foundation of HypZert was triggered by the criminal behaviour of an individual: A so-called "building lion" named Jürgen Schneider had applied for and received large-volume loans from various banks in the 1990s to finance his rapidly growing real estate empire.
A successful international partnership
Nick Talbot, CEO of the International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC) congratulates HypZert on its 25th birthday. HypZert has been an IVSC member since 2018 and is involved in the Advisory Forum and the Europe Board. Together, IVSC and HypZert stand for high standards in valuation, in Germany and worldwide.
International congratulations from the steering committee
Wayne Nygard, who has been active in different roles in the real estate valuation business in the United States, is a true bridge-builder and a friend of HypZert from the very early days on. After many years of collaboration, Wayne has become a member of HypZert’s Steering Committee where he adds a truly international perspective.
At that time, no one would have believed what a tree this little plant would grow into
Every HypZert valuer knows her very well: Annett Wünsche, Department Head Valuation at the Association of German Pfandbrief Banks (vdp). Having been with the vdp since 2007, she not only knows HypZert inside out, but above all the regulatory basis for the work of HypZert valuers. We are particularly pleased to be able to present her own HypZert story today:
25 years of HypZert: An external expert on an internal committee
In the previous articles in our statement series, only certified HypZert valuers had their say. Today we pass the baton to Manuel Jahn, Head of Business Development at Habona Invest GmbH in Hamburg and a long-standing member of the HypZert Professional Group Retail.
25 Years HypZert – The first female certified valuer
As you may know, the topic of "women's quota" is not an issue at HypZert. Our team consists of 8 women and 2 men. For a long time, the quota of our certified valuers was very "male-heavy", so the first lady naturally stood out. That is why we start our statement series with her, one of the first HypZert certified women: Gabriele Höfert-Voigt.
