Who we are
Magshimim Properties initiates and promotes urban renewal projects, building restorations, and projects under the terms of Israel’s National Outline Plan 38 (NOP 38), which provides various benefits for promoters and homeowners in return for strengthening buildings against earthquakes. The company is also involved in new construction projects around Israel.
Magshimim Properties was founded by Arthur Mankovich and Erez Dayan Harbagiu, entrepreneurs with extensive knowledge and experience in the fields of real estate and industry. After an acquaintance spanning many years, they decided to join forces and leverage their experience in order to create an innovative and leading real estate company.
The company has a solid commercial and financial base and maintains strategic partnerships with carefully-selected professionals with proven experience in implementing real estate projects in general and NOP 38projects in particular.
Magshimim Properties Properties is Israel’s leading company in the field of urban renewal through NOP 38 projects.

We believe that the secret to the successful planning and implementation of any real estate project, and particularly NOP 38 projects, lies in understanding the residents’ needs. To this end, the company has developed a unique working model that sees the residents as full partners in the process, from the preliminary feasibility studies through completion of construction and maintenance of the renovated building. This approach helps to create a pleasant living environment that significantly improves the residents’ quality of life.

“The thing I noticed most about working with Magshimim Properties was the way they stuck to deadlines. On the first day we began to work together, they gave us a detailed booklet explaining the planning process. At the first meeting with the company’s liaison officer, he gave us his phone number and invited us to contact him personally at any time. He explained everything and answered every question. All that remains now is to wait for the work to be done. So far I am very satisfied.”
Nimrod Hamias, 3 Prof. Nahum St., Rishon Lezion
“During the project we had a contact person who worked with us throughout the whole process. He was accessible and available and it was great fun working with him. He understood when the residents were free to speak to him and it was very easy to work with him. We got the information we needed and we had a feeling of full transparency on the company’s part. We never felt they were hiding any information from us. So far everything has gone to plan and everything they have promised the residents has come true. I would definitely recommend that other buildings take advantage of the company’s services.”
