Dr. Dr. Rainer Zitelmann is one of the most prominent real estate experts in Germany, as well as being a successful real estate investor and author.

Dr. Rainer Zitelmann was originally an historian. He studied history and political sciences, graduating with a doctorate “summa cum laude” in 1986. His dissertation was published in both German and English: Hitler. The Policies of Seduction.

Rainer Zitelmann began his career lecturing history at the Freie Universität Berlin.

In the year 2000, Dr. Rainer Zitelmann founded a company, Dr. ZitelmannPB. GmbH. He ran the company from 2000 to 2016, establishing it as by far the leading PR consultancy for the German real estate industry. He sold the business in 2016.

Dr. Dr. Zitelmann is just as well known as an investor in Berlin’s residential real estate market.

In 2015/2016, as real estate prices sky-rocketed, Dr. Zitelmann sold around half of his Berlin properties.
