Active in the real estate market since 1918, Halter today is one of Switzerland's leading construction and real estate service providers. Business Development, Developments, Global Services and Renovations are company business units that focus on the design and implementation of development projects designed for all kinds of purposes and involving total investments on any scale.


Controlling shares in the company are held by Chairman of the Board Balz Halter, CEO Markus Mettler and other members of staff. Together with our clients, we identify and implement the development potential of sites, land, construction projects and real estate: for the efficient use of our resources. 

Our values

Halter's corporate culture, formed as it is by values such as entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainability, provides the foundation for an organization that is agile and highly effective. People before structures: our employees represent Halter to the outside world independently of the corporate structure and are thus able to act in the best interests of both client and project at all times.


An entrepreneurial spirit, leadership and partnership lie at the heart of our customer relationships. Our competence and conscientiousness are reflected in the success of our clients, principals and partners Cultivation of an entrepreneurial mindset and promotion of it in our business environment is our top priority.


Innovation leads to a higher quality of life and better use of the built environment, as well as productivity increases. This requires collaboration both internally and externally, broad-based expertise throughout the entire life cycle of a property, and an open and inquisitive corporate culture that form the basis for consistent and continuous improvement of our products and processes.


We fully embrace the notion of sustainability and seek to find long-term solutions. To that end, we follow a circular-economy model and aim for sustainability in a transparent way. We back sensible architecture and well-planned urban development, achieve long-term profitability for investors and make the most of (digital) technology to deliver energy-efficient and environmentally friendly solutions.
