My Story

I know that buying or selling a property is not as easy as it sometimes seems.

Prior to devoting my life to a full-time career in real estate, I underwent several transactions of my own...and believe me when I say that not all of them were pretty.

Nonetheless, when I looked past the paperwork and the tough negotiations, I realized that a part of me truly enjoyed the process. Ienjoyed dealing with people. I enjoyed the design and architecture of fine luxury homes. But above all, I enjoyed the process of finding the property my family would call 'home' for the next 15+ years.

It was this realization that has shaped the way I approach every new client and transaction. I aim to provide a truly unique service tailored to making every negotiation as smooth and enjoyable as possible, all while exceeding my client's financial objectives.

My journey into real estate began many years before I purchased my first property, however. Back when I was a little girl of humble beginnings growing up in Germany, I would often try to get a peak through windows or fences into sometimes modest, sometimes luxury and fancy homes I came across. Then I would wonder just how it might feel inside each of those homes and about its people.

Even as I travelled around the world and became more experienced within the field professionally, that curious girl still remains a piece of me today. And it's that very enthusiasm that I bring to every transaction, because I know that behind every real estate deal rests a story.

I look forward to listen to your story and to write your next real estate chapter together.

With warmest regards,
Petra
