Your Paradise REALTOR®️
Puerto Vallarta & Bahia de Banderas, Mexico
A Swedish-Canadian having lived, studied and/or worked in Sweden, Switzerland, Canada, Poland, Germany, Spain, USA, and Mexico, I am a multilingual world citizen fluent in several languages; Swedish, English, and Spanish. I am a hardworking, strategic leader with 25 years of progressive experience impacting the corporate bottom line and performance through expert alignment. Throughout my university studies, I attended several international business relations exchange programs with Mexico including CEPE in Puebla, la Universidad de las Americas in Puebla, as well as la Universidad de Guadalajara. I graduated from the University of Western Ontario, Canada with a BA in International Business Relations, and then completed the Master Degree in International Business Administration (MBA) at the European University in Barcelona, Spain (second highest grade in the class).
As Global Human Resources Director and a member of the Board of Directors for a world leading manufacturing corporation headquartered in Canada for 8 years, I maximized performance of over 500 employees across multiple global geographic locations. A seasoned executive head-hunter and recruiter, I am proficient at building talented multinational workforces, by providing members with structured training, support, resource guidance, and motivation to exceed organizational objectives. Training and Certifications include: Certified Joint Health and Safety Committee (Chairman), Certified Internal Auditor (ISO), Chairman of the Joint Health & Safety Committee and First Aid Certified, Exceptional Customer Service, Fred Pryor, and Canadian Council for the Americas, Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade as well as several certifications in real estate.
Living in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for the last 15 years, I am currently a Luxury Specialist Broker Realtor at my brokerage Sixten Realty Keller Williams. I have two office, one in Jalisco and one in Riviera Nayarit. I am the Chair of the Productivity Committee on the Associate Leadership Council (ALC) at Keller Williams Bahía and top 10 in sales of the largest Market Center in Mexico. As a former head hunter and recruiter, my passion has always been matchmaking, but now my focus is on dream homes for clients in Mexico. My international background helps me greatly with buyer clients and the listings I market both nationally and internationally. Being multinational and multilingual ensures excellent communication skills with all parties. I love to learn and am always looking for courses to stay up-to-date on the market and enjoy my continuous professional development. This allows me to stay at the forefront of real estate and serve my clients more effectively. My connections include a vast network of national and international agents, potential buyers and sellers, and an excellent team of architects, builders, interior designers, appraisers, home inspectors, and mortgage loan officers. My network can attest that I have a great attitude and value teamwork, honesty, and integrity. Although I specialize in the luxury market, I understand the local housing market and have a pricing strategy for each scenario, providing real estate services to all market segments.
Those who know me know that I have a true passion for architecture and design and have a natural ability to see the vision and the potential in properties. Creativity, innovation, and intelligent decision-making make for good business. With my problem-solver mindset, I love to come up with creative solutions. I know how to properly showcase a house to make it more marketable and develop creative MLS listings to attract suitable clients. My professional sales team are all AMPI members as well as my administrator. The team expedites the buying and selling process, ensuring transactions are seamless. My team abides by the strictest Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. Professionalism, organization, efficiency, and attention to detail are what you will receive.
My professional reputation is of utmost importance. I have a great work ethic, drive and tenacity. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to meeting you!
