Our mission is quite simple. We believe there´s a strong connection between the joy of working and the returns we get.
We perform our best when we find our work stimulating. To be able to work in an enthusiastic and committed way with every house we sell, we sometimes need to turn down a commission. This is not to say that we only deal with certain types of houses. The small house on the edge of the woods that needs renovating can be just as exciting as an old farmhouse on the plain.
But we always enjoy working with more unusual properties!
There are times in our lives when we need to make changes; sometimes we need to move on; sometimes we have the chance of a new start. It is a privilege to be able to make choices and change our lives. It is important to value that privilege and consider the steps we are taking. I sometimes find myself a little envious when I am in the presence of people who have the courage to uproot themselves and transplant themselves into a new and unfamiliar soil, whether they are going to move here or move away.
But for myself, I think I am like a Peony. I stop flowering if I am moved!
Fundamentally, perhaps, it’s about quality of life. We keep repeating our motto:
“In Österlen, the quality of life is higher than house prices.”
A play on words, perhaps, because quality of life does not easily translate into cash terms. Besides, the phrase “quality of life” can these days seem a bit of a cliché. But the meaning is important, nonetheless. It is interesting to reflect that the concept of “quality of life” was introduced as an economic term as far back as the 1970s. It referred to the way a feeling of worth and prosperity could supplement the Gross National Product.
Perhaps, in an ever–changing world, our own perspectives on life
must also change.
For my own part, I experience life’s quality when I succeed in staying present, “in the flow”, as the experts say. Our cherished hope is that we can help you to enhance your quality of life. At the very least, we will be here to advise you and to help you find your way. We will be your guide and go-between, irrespective of whether you are buying or selling!
