Dear PropTech Community,
I wish you all a HaPpY, healthy and prosperous new year – may you find enough time in 2022 to seize the moment!

Then ask yourself what your answers are
… to look up to,
… to look forward to, and
… to chase.
I look up to the beauty of nature, the amazing sky and the power of the ocean. I believe that we are all connected in this world and I am truly grateful for the opportunities life gives us!
I look forward to seeing my two teenage sons find their path, to enjoy special moments together and to continuously learn from them. They are my driver and being their mom is by far my most precious accomplishment in life.
I chase myself, I love to learn, to stretch myself and to make the world a better place.
Well, I am far from being perfect – but hey I only turned 50 years and it’s all about the path, step by step.
Surrounding myself with top-notch people is enriching.
For 2022 I will focus on being the best version of myself as a mom, including self-care, and continue to exercise and do my daily meditation rituals until that becomes a habit.
As a business leader I will improve my listening capacity, continue to promote diversity, inclusion, to coach founders and young professionals, and to highlight the importance of ESG in digital real estate!
How to become a better listener
Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card. How you leave others feeling after having an experience with you becomes your trademark!

Big virtual hug,
Your Julia 😉
