Thinking about my personal hobbies and things I like to do, I realized that most of those sooner or later ended up in a business I founded. I love knitting (remember, Germany is a cold country). After a while, I was asked for some of the sweaters to be put on show in an exhibition. Soon I was selling sweaters and knitting material and was giving classes. I love sewing. After I finished my first own full dress, my female friends asked for prom dresses. I made and sold them, way too cheap as I now realize. I loved math in school, love it still today and of course did all my accounting and tax declarations myself. And ended up as a treasurer for a multinational company.
I come from a large urban craftsmen family, so construction, planning, design and building is somehow in my blood. After helping friends designing and renovating their homes or selling and buying their properties became real work, I started a Real Estate consulting company.
Having more than a hundred cookbooks is probably a give away for my love of cooking, dressing a beautiful table and having people for elegant dinners. Not surprising I ended up owning a catering business. In hindsight, that might have been one of my best decisions, because I met my husband 30 years ago, when catering for his software company’s business events.
My husband loves scuba diving, and is a scuba instructor. To spend more time with him, I became an instructor myself and, you guess it, opened a scuba shop and school in Hamburg. When I finally sold it, it was the largest business of that kind in North Germany, with several hundred students a year and 15 instructors working for me. We then ventured into Cave Diving, and that lead to Florida, but that’s another story.
I like to believe that all these hobbies and things I love to do culminate in my love for the Real Estate business.
So here I am, you’re REALTOR®. Call me!
