Nothing works without teamwork

The City-Wohnen team

Our customers are usually in a hurry. That's why our teamwork is flexible. We avoid fixed contact people as much as possible and keep all information accessible to all colleagues. Everybody knows what is going on, so everybody can help immediately. This means better, faster service for you.

Ingrid is always ready to meet challenges head on and enjoys the thrill of finding solutions. She loves the fact that there is no standstill in her job. There is always a "next step." From the very first hour she has been convinced by the concept of temporary furnished accommodations. The development of the industry over the last decades makes this lawyer proud. Her greatest motivation is seeing everything working and the team acting as one.

Together with Ingrid, Frederick had the courage to try something new in 1987 when they founded the Mitwohnzentrale. The company name has changed, but the daring remains. Every day he has to learn about new topics, and that is exactly what Frederick enjoys. This is a boss who keeps his cool even in new and nerve-wracking situations. Frederick was key in establishing a quality network for furnished interim apartments . He was chairman of the former REM network for many years. Today he is also the managing director of Zeitwohnwerk.

Nobody has a coat as soft as Akina’s. If she were a candy, then she’d surely be milk chocolate. Akina belongs to Harald and has been his faithful companion for many years. She is 100% reliable and always ready for an adventure. Balanced but with spark is a good way to describe this Flat-Coated-Retriever lady.

Anja is my star! But - well - the others in the team are OK too, I guess. Especially when they pet me :)

Anja is always on her toes and has a lot of positive energy. That helps her take care of the wishes of our private customers every day. She is the mother of two children herself, so she especially loves helping families find accommodations. Our team perks up their ears when customers from Spain or Latin America call because then they can enjoy the music of her fluent Spanish!

Kristina Strobel
Private Client Team

"I'd like a view of the ocean" may be just about the only wish Kristina is not able to fulfill, and you can blame that on geography! Every day, though, she goes to great lengths for our customers - so much so that one nice gentleman brought her chocolates to the office. He was overjoyed that Kristina found him an apartment in the same building as his grandson. She joined City-Wohnen in 2003, and curious as she is, she has tried to have an "aha-experience" every day since.

A lot has happened at City-Wohnen since Wiebke joined the team 1995: a few name changes, a big move, and technology that is developing faster and faster. What never changes for Wiebke? The focus is on our customers, the people behind the inquiries and apartments. "I aspire to meet every customer's needs and to know at the end of the day that everyone is satisfied. That motivates me anew every day."

Just born in 2019, Mushu is the youngest Feel-Good-Manager in our team. He is a relaxed French Bulldog from a shelter. According to mistress Nancy, he is "a cuddly wolverine, charmer with funny 5 minutes, trusting and curious. Every now and then those button eyes and bat ears reveal a little stubborn streak." Favorite hobbies include sleeping, eating, cuddling, and being scratched.

Kristina Krogmann
Marketing Manager

Kristina Krogmann
Marketing Manager

After 7 years in Amsterdam, Kristina was already used to wind and rain, so it was not difficult for her to quickly feel at home in the Hanseatic city. Her own stay in a furnished apartment was perfect for the beginning. It was also perfect for developing good instincts about what is important for interim, furnished living.

Kristina has been our marketing specialist since Autumn 2019. Social media, SEO, SEA, etc. are her daily bread. Boredom? No way! The variety of her tasks motivates her every day anew. Not only that, but as she says, "I appreciate the highly motivated yet relaxed and familiar atmosphere in the team".

Rico
Feel-good-Manager

A Romanian rescue dog with a happy Hamburg ending! Together with his mistress Kristina (K), Rico made the leap into Hamburg society in June 2020. He has learned to appreciate his many admirers at the office and their eagerness to pet him. An added bonus are the goodies that no one can hide from his fine nose.

Corporate Client Team

Sina's motto is “Nothing is impossible!” Whether it concerns the desires of an apartment seeker or those of a lessor, each case is individual. Through her lively, direct and efficient manner, Sina manages to respond to each of our clients and meet their needs. She never loses sight of human kindness and fair cooperation, though, as these are particularly important to her.

Lea von Prondzinski
Private Client Team

Lea von Prondzinski
Private Client Team

As a true Hamburg native, Lea is perfectly adapted to the - let's say - maritime climate and rides her bicycle to the office in all kinds of weather. Even if there is no place like home, though, Lea loves to travel. She has been to South Korea, the USA, and has also spent time in Cologne. Lea understands from her own experience how important it is to have a comfortable place to stay when you arrive.

This is exactly what motivates Lea in her work in the private customer team and as field service coordinator. Equally important are the nice colleagues, the four-legged feel-good managers, and the great birthday cakes that miraculously appear in the kitchen.

Gabriele is always on tour and moving full speed ahead. She and Stefanie share the reception and back-office duties such as preparing inspection reports, answering inquiries, and editing floor plans and photos. Those tasks never get boring, but it's the field service that keeps her moving the most. You will see Gabriele at apartment viewings and handing over the apartments at move-in and move-out. "I love working with all kinds of different people, and I am always impressed by how beautifully designed many apartments are. You get a few ideas for your own home.”

Muriel has been part of our field service team since 2016. Her job is to hand over apartments to new occupants in an orderly fashion and to check them back out at the end of the rental period. At handovers she inspects the condition of the apartments very carefully to ensure that everything is in perfect order for all lessees. "After the first year, the procedure was engraved in my mind. I can’t even walk past a small defect in my own home anymore.”

Michael Nemes
Field Service Team

Michael Nemes
Field Service Team

Michael’s (“Call me Mitch”) charming manners predestine him to work with people, so he is the perfect fit for field service. He takes care that our temporary lessees get a good start in the apartments they’ve chosen and that everything runs smoothly when moving out. He especially likes the variety. Every day in field service you meet new people, get around Hamburg a lot, and see a wide range of apartments, interior design and views. "The view from the 20th floor of the most beautiful city in the world is always a treat.”
