Key competencies in

  • contract management
  • customer service
  • process optimization
  • intercultural awareness.

Seasoned expertise in both foreign and Danish lease agreements, particularly with expatriates. I have managed the leasing portfolio for the US Embassy in Copenhagen, which involved everything from matching diplomats with fitting properties, negotiating American leases, and overseeing move-in and move-out procedures, including handling landlord disputes. I’ve also cultivated strong relationships with landlords, housing agents and shipping partners.

My aim is to offer your employees outstanding service and make the housing process as straightforward as can be for both you and your expatriates
