Decorations, gifts, social media? – The Christmas traditions of our real estate agents

For most of us, Christmas is a time of introspection, homeliness and relaxing evenings in our circle of family and friends. But everyone also associates certain personal feelings and impressions with the festive season: Some of us look forward to spending quality time with the family, and thus maintain their family traditions. Others look forward to a festively decorated home or festive dinner.

We asked our real estate agents Tanja Vieth from the Engel & Völkers Market Center Elbe and Lukas Chlebusch from Engel & Völkers Commercial Braunschweig what they associate with Christmas and what a perfect Christmas would look like for them.

What feelings, impressions and events do you associate with Christmas?

Tanja Vieth, Engel & Völkers Elbe:

For me, Christmas is a time of consciously deciding to relax and unwind for a couple of days. A time for enjoying each other’s company by candlelight. That’s the way it always was and still is for me.

And Christmas decorations. I love Christmas lighting and cannot get enough of it.

Lukas Chlebusch, Engel & Völkers Commercial Braunschweig:

I associate positive feelings with Christmas. I think it’s important to be quiet and reflective from time to time. Although I would prefer action, especially more action in the property market, I enjoy the peace and quiet before things start heating up again in the property market. This year I’ll be going to Vienna with my girlfriend for a couple of days, enjoy the local Christmas market and explore the city. I am really looking forward to it.  I also love a good Christmas dinner, a big Christmas tree, spending time with the family, wellness, sport, quietude and meeting old friends.

Do you follow any Christmas traditions?

Tanja Vieth, Engel & Völkers Elbe:

I would not describe myself as being very traditional, but I do have a Christmas tree in my home every year. But only since I became a mom. Christmas with children is like a journey into one’s past. I love it.

Lukas Chlebusch, Engel & Völkers Commercial Braunschweig:

I don’t really follow any traditions. That’s because I don’t like routines. I take it as it comes.

Do you abstain from social media during the holidays or has social media become part of your festive season?

Tanja Vieth, Engel & Völkers Elbe:

Neither nor. I will go about it the same way as usual. I go online when I have time, but when I’m with my family or don’t feel like it, you won’t see much of me. But you’ll surely hear a thing or two about my Christmas experiences in my story.

Lukas Chlebusch, Engel & Völkers Commercial Braunschweig:

I don’t think I’ll do social media over Christmas. For me, Christmas means focusing on family. This is not something I would want to share with everyone. But between Christmas and New Year, I intend to take a closer look at Instagram. I am still relatively new to social media, so there are still some things I need to learn. I am planning to improve my posts and profile in 2019.  

What a perfect Christmas looks like for me:

Tanja Vieth, Engel & Völkers Elbe:

Children’s eyes lighting up. Priceless, time and again.

Lukas Chlebusch, Engel & Völkers Commercial Braunschweig:

Harmony, my family’s health and a positive mindset for the coming year.
