What is your perfect breakfast before starting to work?
When I wake up, I only have a coffee and I set off to start my working.
What makes you proud of working for Engel & Völkers?
First of all, I am proud of working for a group providing the best quality service to each client. Not only our advice is reserved to an elite, but also to everyone wishing to sell or rent a property with us.
Then, the brand Engel & Völkers is a reference in the real estate world. Indeed, a property on sale in Luxemnbourg can match research criteria of a potential buyer worldwide. Our 800 agencies present on 4 continents can redirect these persons to our agency in Luxembourg. This way we connect the seller with potential buyers.
Finally, Engel & Völkers provide agents many tools as well as a comprehensive training. This allow us to be at the forefront of our field and to be efficient in order to spend more time with our clients.
What makes you proud of working in Luxembourg?
Luxembourg is a unique country for its multi-culturalism. Every day, I meet very different people which is really important for my personal fulfillment. I learn from every one to have as much open-mindedness as possible. I love to work people coming from different horizons. Working in Luxembourg which is such a cosmopolitan country brings so much to me.
3 reason why being a real estate agent is your dream job?
My job as a real estate agent allows me to manage my schedule as I like. Love the freedom it brings any the mobility it requires.
Then, I attach a great importance to the human aspect. What I prefer is to establish a different relationship with each client and to enter a little bit into his life in order to fully understand his needs and help him to find his dream property!
Finally, I find the system really rewarding. My work has always born good fruit. Thanks to all the tools we have at Engel & Völkers, we cannot fail. A serious work is always rewarded by lots of success.
According to you, what are the key to succeed as a real estate agent?
First the versatility. We need to be able to do really diverse tasks and to adapt to each client’s needs.
Then in Luxembourg, it is better to master different languages to be able to communicate with the client in a language he feels comfortable. I speak French, English and I also have a great knowledge of German and Luxembourgish.
Finally, a value seems essential to me : the righteousness. To gain trust of a client, we need to act with the greatest transparency. I am aware of the fact that the sale or the acquisition of a real estate is an important step into a lifetime. I always build a forthright relationship with my clients to support them at best in their real estate project.
Could you tell me about a person whom you particularly admire ?
I take inspiration from Jean d’Ormesson for his elegance, optimism and moreover for its work about hedonism. I share his thought which I find very true. Unfortunately, he left us last year but his beliefs in happiness remain. To me, this is an example to follow in order to lead a happy life.
What are you doing in your free time?
I love to travel and I l listen to music. I think that these two leisures really match my outlook on life.
Little anecdote, I often go to the animal shelter of Gasperich. I spend some time with dogs: I take care of them, I play with them, I walk them… It helps me to relax.
How would you describe your dream home ?
I dream of a loft with large spaces, in old stone, in a green environment indoor as well as outdoor.
