Real Estate Company
Beck Real Estate Kft is a Hungarian property rental company with American ownership and management. We are not a buyer. We buy big apartments (80 to 115 square meters) in beautiful 19th century buildings in Budapest’s center and renovate them to a very high standard under the direction of a very talented Hungarian interior designer, Judit Koczoh. Our aim is always the same – to create cutting edge apartments in terms of beauty, comfort, and energy efficiency. We lease long term our fully furnished properties to companies or individuals with contracts typically ranging from 3 months to 2 years. Unlike the competition, we are debt free, have no long term tax liabilities, and no short term payables. Beck Real Estate Kft is an island of financial strength in a sea of financially fragile competitors.

We provide beautiful, highly comfortable, and energy efficient apartment rentals that will add grace to your life. These upscale flats located in late 19th buildings in downtown Budapest are for long term rent only (minimum 1 month) and require a security deposit. Our tenants have included oil company executives, UN employees, independently wealthy businessmen, and film production employees among others. Our rentals are very popular in the Budapest expat community and heavily used by film professionals. Actual terms have ranged from three months to two years.
Unlike the dull, monochrome so-called luxury apartments so prevalent today, our elegant flats emphasize traditional Eastern European elegance spiced with bold color in the furniture and accessories. We preserve as much as possible the original features of these 120 year old apartments, but introduce more modern furniture and decorations to create an eclectic look combining the best of traditional and modern interior design. Consequently, Beck Real Estate flats are almost aesthetically unique. Furnished luxury apartment rentals as beautiful as ours are rare in Budapest. Our properties have been featured in freshome.com, apartmenttherapy.com, and the 2014 Fall edition of Nők Lapja, the leading Hungarian print home journal.
COMFORT AND HIGH QUALITY OF LIFE
We believe that beauty without comfort is like a champagne that sparkles, but tastes flat. In contrast, our long term central Budapest rentals are designed not just for photo opportunities or la belle image, but for everyday living. Each apartment includes an energy frugal 24/7 PassivHaus ventilation system. This technology monitors and maintains air quality by constantly bringing in fresh air, filtering it, and keeping temperature and humidity within narrow limits. All our flats have huge storage space in the form of carpenter fashioned cabinets containing clothing bins, movable shoe racks, and coat racks as well as kitchen cabinets. Most rooms have at least ten power sockets and two data outlets. High performance double or triple glazed windows keep the luxury rentals very quiet as well keeping heat out during the summer and in during the winter. We focus on the fundamentals of good living.
Hungary is a country with a voracious appetite for energy. The winters are usually cold and the summers very warm, yet most energy is either imported or fossil fuels like coal. In the interest of protecting your bank account as well as fighting global warming, Beck Real Estate’s apartments are energy frugal. This is achieved by installing double or triple glazed windows with specially insulated frames, state of the art condensation gas boilers for space heating and hot water, retrofitted entrance doors to minimize air leakage, LED light bulbs, and very energy efficient appliances. The 30 centimeter solid brick building walls do the rest. Tenants are seeing combined gas and electricity charges averaging as low as 30 Euros a month in flats exceeding 80 square meters. These high performance windows not only reduce gas charges, but keep the rentals very quiet and also cooler in the summer. The gain in quality of life is considerable.
QUALITY AND CUSTOMER SERVICE
Finally, Beck Real Estate understands that a happy tenant is the best marketing. Our apartments are designed to last for many decades without major repairs or renovation. Our customer service is better because we are not absentee landlords like many Budapest real estate owners nor are we property managers individually handling hundreds of properties like some of our better known competitors. Instead, we live in the same neighborhood (Hunyadi Tér) as our apartment rentals. We cannot guarantee that no repairs will be necessary or that things will never break, but we can guarantee that each flat was renovated and is maintained according to best industry practice. We consistently follow best practice in renovation, maintenance, and apartment upgrades. Backing us up is a property management team having immediate access to repairmen.
