“When I visited Lanzarote and Fuerteventura for the first time in 2014, I instantly fell in love. The mild temperatures, the tranquillity of nature and the welcoming community immediately made me dream of buying a residence on one of the islands. However, the search for a house was far from easy. The main obstacles were the distance and the Mediterranean business culture that I had no affinity with. So I came up with the idea of helping other sun seekers to realise their real estate dream. With over 30 years of experience in sales, I know that everything starts with a problem-solving mentality and customer-oriented service. This is what I want to offer my customers: a carefree home under the sun.”
