I grew up in a small city in the Taunus mountain range north of Frankfurt and swapped the forest with the skyline of Hong Kong when I was 12 years old with my parents and sister. Originally we were only supposed to stay for 2 years but that was 35 years ago….
I attended the German Swiss International School in Hong Kong so schooling was not very different from what I was used to but the changes in environment, culture and lifestyle is what people now refer to as ‘culture shock’. However, it did not take me very long to adapt to my new surroundings, and before I knew it, I was fully immersed in my new life as a ‘beach bum’, spending numerous weekends in Stanley for windsurfing and other water sports. The rest, they say, is history.
I decided to live in Discovery Bay, a development of about 20,000 people with a laid back, almost rural atmosphere, yet only 30 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. This is also where I met my lovely wife 15 years ago. Today, we enjoy hiking the hills of Hong Kong and spending quality time with our 14 year old daughter.
I have held numerous positions with renowned international corporations before embarking on a career in real estate where I successfully established comprehensive real estate services for two major relocation companies merging home search with other destination services.
A strong knowledge of Hong Kong and understanding of the requirements of individuals and families relocating to - or within Hong Kong make me the ideal partner for finding the perfect property for you.
