Creating lifetime relationships

Updated: Feb 6

My name is Alexandra Janz, and I am a Realtor and Luxury Properties Specialist with William Raveis-Florida, LLC. My husband Juergen and I moved to Naples in 2016 after growing up in Freiburg, the capital of the Black Forest in Germany. Since then, we have called Naples our home.

My passion has been Real Estate for more than 23 years now. It is hard to imagine another job that offers such a wide range of opportunities and the chance to assist people in achieving their dreams and goals. I work with so many different people of different ages, nationalities, financial backgrounds, and lifestyles, sometimes over months and years. And not only can I give them my experience, advice, and knowledge of Real Estate but I also learn so much from each and every one of them. It is through both working relationships that friendships are being built that will last a lifetime.

But how did I start this business and why? After studying and working in different careers I searched for something that combined my work experience, passions, and talents. Due to my good listening skills and my ability to understand people’s needs and fears, I found that working as a Real Estate Agent gave me not only what I was looking for, but also variety and freedom. My career started in Kehl, a small city in Germany, on the border to Strasbourg, France, where I became the co-director and managing partner in a family-owned Real Estate Brokerage. In 2008 I decided to open my own brokerage in Freiburg, my hometown, which I managed successfully with my team for many years. My company was chosen by the popular business magazine Focus among the top 1000 brokers in Germany for many years. I also received the “Best Property Agents” award from Europe’s largest real estate magazine Bellevue. What I have been able to accomplish and still do in the Real Estate Business gives me great satisfaction and pride. For this reason, I never stop learning and finding new ideas to assist my customers in making informed decisions about their finances and homes.

In Naples, I specialize in working with affluent customers from all over the world. Having fluency in multiple languages, aside from English, facilitates communication and builds trust. In addition, I use my knowledge of how people in other countries are searching for homes abroad to market my listings so they will be found both locally and nationally as well as internationally. It is important to remember that the second largest group of foreign buyers comes from Europe, especially Germany and Switzerland.

Furthermore, I have obtained the designation of CIPS, Certified International Real Estate Specialist, which gives me the opportunity to network with 4000+ other CIPS Specialists and their customers in 60 countries worldwide. It is an additional advantage for my customers to list their properties with me and the AJ International Group Naples. Working with seniors is another very important part of my job in Real Estate. Right-sizing elderly people is something I love to do when they reach that point in their lives. It’s important to me that they make the right decision and find the perfect new place in Naples or elsewhere.

Together with a network of other Seniors Specialists in different areas behind me, I handle everything around the sale and/or purchase of a new home or finding a place in a senior living facility.  As a result, I became an SRES®, which stands for Senior Real Estate Specialist®.

Having mentioned in the beginning that Real Estate is my passion, I hope our paths cross in the future and that I will have the opportunity to assist you with your real estate transaction whether you are selling or buying.
