Dear Sir or Madam,

I am the owner and Managing Director of Swiss Commercial Invest and it is my pleasure to welcome you to our homepage to provide an overview of our services.

After studying Economics and Business at the University of Business Administration Vienna, I soon gained a wide experience within the real estate divisions of various consulting companies such as EY, PWC and JLL. In the beginning of 2007 I moved on to CBRE in Zurich, where I handled numerous transactions of all asset types. In addition, I held mandates in the comprehensive valuation of nationwide commercial real estate portfolios as well as in corporate real estate.

Since 2012 I am the Managing Director of Swiss Commercial Invest and your contact person for a successful national and international handling of commercial real estate projects.

Let me welcome you among our clients!

Investment, Divestment, Finance Advisory.

We assist and advise you in sales, acquisition or financing processes for residential and commercial real estate, be it for single assets or portfolios. Unpleasant surprises in the transaction process can be avoided, by comprehensively considering all relevant elements already at the beginning of a mandate. This is where our services in Investment Solutions start.

Our strong and continuously updated network of national and international investors and owners is the basis for a fast and optimal handling of your real estate transaction. Years of experience and detailed market knowledge make us your business partner of choice, even for demanding transactions like Sale & Lease Backs.

Our services in Investment Solutions include e.g.:

  • Valuations (BOV)
  • Market- and asset focused risk and strategy analysis
  • Issuing of professional and modern on and offline documentation
  • Data collection, audit and structuring (Due Diligence)
  • Preparation, support and monitoring of a secured online data room
  • Strategic scheduling and lead of negotiations
  • Finance consulting and arrangement of the best possible financing conditions

You can choose these services either separately or integrated in a Sales, Acquisition or Finance Advisory mandate.


Within a sales mandate we first set up a tailor-made marketing strategy and a sales process focused on your asset(s). Our experience in the selection of potential investors as well as the management of structured sales processes for assets of all types will ensure a smooth transaction.

The holistic view of your property or portfolio guarantees a thorough consideration of all of its individual characteristics.

Your asset will thus be placed on the market and sold in the best possible way.

We will inform you about the current market- and asset situation in regular intervals. By doing so, we transparently disclose all respective steps of the sales process. Necessary adaptations are discussed with you and will be instantly implemented.


For your Acquisition mandates we spot qualified investment opportunities within a short period of time – on and off market. Our partly exclusive access to attractive assets allows us to present to you viable opportunities in a fast and detailed Due Diligence. We aim to speed up your investment decision and to improve your likelihood for success for every transaction.

We identify possible risks early in the acquisition process in order to treat them in a proactive way.

Our long-lasting partnerships with specialists in contract- and tax law, financing, building technology, contamination and provide the necessary expertise.

Additionally, we may represent you in price negotiations. We prepare the latter strategically in order to anticipate possible negotiation scenarios. Thus, we are ready to achieve your objectives with the right arguments.


Debt-financing terms are often essential for the success of a transaction. We put together an overview of the current market-conditions for the asset in question. Our comprehensive compilation fosters a transparent assessment of financing opportunities and lets us find the financing partner appropriate for you.

If needed, we proficiently set up all relevant documentation requested by your financing partner. This will accelerate the financing process and may help you to be ahead of other bidders in a real estate transaction.

Romanshorn / Thurgau:

« We have got to know Mr Mandl and Swiss Commercial Invest AG as an extremely committed partner on the occasion of the sale of a business property, which has structured the sales process in a neat and well-motivated manner and completed it to the end. We were able to benefit from his broad network and Mr. Mandl kept us up-to-date at all times and was always available for in-depth discussions and questions. »

Thomas Linder, Leiter Immobilien, AMAG Corporate Services AG

Birr / Aargau:

“Selling the industrial building with the automated small parts warehouse was a major challenge because the user profile for such a building is very limited.

Mr. Mandl from SCI has realistically planned and implemented the sales process with his experience. Impressively using the new possibilities of web analysis and trends, the process was constantly monitored and managed.

Even with complicated technical inquiries from prospective buyers, he caught the relevant offers on his own and in record time. This enabled the sales process to be completed successfully within the planned timeframe. I thank Philipp Mandl for his excellent work! »

Roland Brack, Owner, BRACK.CH AG

Winterthur / Zurich:

Ferenc Deme, Group Real Estate & Facility Management, BASF Schweiz AG

Langenthal / Berne:

“The sale of the property was for strategic reasons, and was carried out quickly and competently by SCI. However, the location in Langenthal remains for our customers, which we have ensured through a long-term lease back. »

Kaspar Etter, Delegate of the Board of Directors, Q11 AG

Kölliken / Aargau:

“Finding a suitable single user for an industrial building plot of this size was certainly the biggest challenge in this project. Mr. Mandl from SCI has performed this task with commitment and professionalism to our fullest satisfaction. »

Leasing, letting, lease contract negotiations.

No matter whether you are a national or international company, there is one essential factor for doing business in Switzerland: The right real estate, at the right location and in for best possible conditions.

We assist and advise you in search, selection and rent of suitable locations in Switzerland and also promote your intent in lease negotiations for new contracts.

In case of space consolidation or relocation, we investigate the current circumstances for you and help you determine the optimization potential for existing spaces or exit scenarios for existing leases. Possible strategies may include subletting, the search for suitable tenants or the renegotiation of existing lease contracts.



Idea generation, space planning & project management of rental spaces.

The best possible exploitation of your office and commercial space can create various challenges. We support you with idea generation, space planning and project management of rental spaces, irrespective the size or type of space. Our experience and engagement ensure the best results.

Our services in Project Management include e.g.:

  • Project Management
  • State Analysis & Feasibility Studies
  • Requirement Clarification & Architectural Concepts
  • Client Representation (planning, implementation)
  • Relocation Management

You can choose these services either separated or integrated.



Development of your specific investment strategy. Set up of realistic investment or reorganization strategy.

The orchestrated management of one or several assets is key for building a sustainable and profitable portfolio. Understanding a portfolio’s expected yield and volatility proves essential for sounding investment or disinvestment opportunities. Not only do we scrutinize single properties, but we also look into prevailing correlations among a portfolio’s elements to prepare the right decision for you.

First, we establish your desired objectives (such as your investment horizon, need of liquidity or wanted cash-flow). Then, we check for your readiness to take risks in order to develop your specific investment strategy. Consequently, we exhaustively examine all relevant attributes of your existing assets to clarify their risks and potentials. The subsequent detection of your assets’ interactions in the portfolio allows us to offer you realistic investment or reorganisation advice.

Our on-going performance and deviation analysis enables us to adapt your portfolio to changing conditions or objectives and to take any required optimisation measures on time.

“The relocation of our location in Zurich was not only a process with many challenges due to our special requirements for the laboratory areas. We thank Mr. Mandl for his professional assistance in finding a location and negotiating the rental agreement. »

Andreas Murfeld, Real Estate Manager EMEA, TE Connectivity

Horgen / Zürich:

“We had a time window of two weeks for our relocation from the first inspection of the new location. Thanks to the goal-oriented cooperation with Mr. Mandl from SCI, the in-depth examination and all necessary steps for the successful transfer of the tenancy could be carried out within this tight time frame. »
