Our History

"Depending on our clients' wishes, we present potential properties, establish contact with well-known investors or are partners in a joint project development company," is how Rainer Filthaut, founder and managing director of IRC, summarizes the main activities.

Over 25 years of real estate expertise. IRC International Realty Corporation was founded in 1995 by Rainer Filthaut and partners as International Realty Consultants, Inc. Located in Southwest Florida, the company quickly experienced success in the brokerage of residential and commercial properties. By 2000, IRC managed a portfolio of commercial real estate valued at over $200 million. That same year, IRC served for the first time as lead developer on several development projects and acquired select properties in syndication with investors. At that time, the brokerage of exclusive residential properties was limited to 20 percent of its activity. Towards the end of 2003, the real estate company decided to gradually discontinue the business of property management for third parties and to manage only the existing properties in its portfolio. At the beginning of 2004, Rainer N. Filthaut acquired the shares of his founding partner and continued the business as sole shareholder. IRC spun off the residential real estate business and brought it into a partnership with the international service company Engel & Völkers (E&V). In the summer of 2006, Rainer N. Filthaut sold his shares in E&V Naples and E&V Florida. From then on, IRC concentrated on its actual core business of commercial real estate. The guiding principle of positioning itself at the forefront of real estate development, through constant analysis and observation of the real estate market, will continue to be successfully pursued by IRC in the future.

A crucial success factor in investing is the right diversification: by country, currency and investment type. Due to globalization, investors should think internationally and look at worldwide developments to find the best medium- to long-term investment for their money.
Long-term statistics and our experience show that few other investments are better suited to achieve profit-maximizing investment goals than real estate.
