BSc (Hons) MBA MRICS EPMIR
Since an early age I’m focussed and goal-orientated. I’m internally motivated to make own decisions and take actions. However, I’m especially proud to have survived and enjoyed over three decades with a smile on my face.
Towards the end of my teenage years I had three potential careers in mind: either becoming a beauty surgeon, stock broker or real estate professional. It turned out to be the career of a real estate professional. A decision I have never regretted!
ROLE & RESPONSIBILITIES
Today, I am the the principle consultant and Managing Director of RJ Consultancy Ltd., a privately-owned international real estate investment boutique. The company provides highly personalised services for commercial cross-border real estate portfolios and single assets to a select group of private high-net-worth and institutional investors. In addition the company co-invests as private equity partner in select investment opportunities.
Real estate investment is my passion. I have over 10 years of international real estate experience, focussing on cross-border commercial investment transactions.
Over the past five years I have travelled extensively across the world, while working on some select projects and managing a personal investment portfolio.
Before founding RJ Consultancy, I worked as Divisional Director with Lisney (Cushman & Wakefield Alliance), where I established and led the German investment operations. Based in Dublin, I expanded the services into Germany and the company became market leader in Ireland for German commercial investments. While working with Lisney, I transacted properties valued at over €700 million on behalf of investors in Germany and continental Europe.
Prior to joining Lisney, I worked with Cushman & Wakefield and its associate partners in South Africa, Germany and Malaysia. Cushman & Wakefield is the largest privately held real estate service firm in the world.
