Dora Da Costa, Team Assistant, MC Luxembourg
Team Assistant for Engel & Völkers for 6 months
What makes you proud of working for Engel & Völkers?
Engel & Völkers is a world-renowned brand with values I share. Indeed, it is synonymous with exclusivity but above all with competence and quality of service offered to all our clients, regardless of the value of their property.
In addition, I am proud to participate in the development of the Luxembourg Market Center, which is undoubtedly one of the most promising real estate markets in Europe.
In your opinion, what are the keys to success in your job?
The main key to success in my job is to have a sense of rigour, structure and organisation.
Also, I think it is important to be reactive and to participate in creating a dynamic within the whole team. I always try to establish interactivity and communication. I think it is essential to be attentive to the team, customers, but also to the market in general in order to be successful in my work.
Then, it seems important to me to have a significant interest in the industry of our business, i.e. residential real estate.
Finally, to succeed as an Assistant at Engel & Völkers, it is important to have a sociable personality and to appreciate teamwork.
Can you tell us about a person you particularly admire?
My partner: Max Holz. Everything he touches turns into gold. He is a deeply committed, brilliant and sincere man. He works in the field of ecology with the intention of integrating it into the heart of modern development discourse.
How do you manage your work/life balance?
I am 100% committed to my job. But when the day or week ends, I like to let my free time run wild.
I think it is important to know how to limit activities that are a waste of time. And above all, I attach particular importance to disconnecting from time to time. In our current society, this is a great challenge that must be mastered
What do you do with your free time?
I like to take part to cultural events (concerts, exhibitions...). I love t travel and to discover new cultures. I am also used to practice sport. It is now part of my life balance. And finally I spend a lot of time with my family and friends.
How do you see your professional life in 3 years?
I expect to have progressed within the company Engel & Völkers. I would like to have reached the position of Team Leader which corresponds particularly to my personality.
Thank you Dora for this great interview!
