Petra Knauthe, Realtor
I was born and raised in the suburbs of Hamburg, Germany, where I lived 27 years. My education was in international transportation ocean and air freight, Logistics and I worked as a certified freight forwarding agent.
In 1993 I moved to NY/NJ to study English for a 6 month period, but decided shortly after to stay longer. The shores of NJ and the closeness of NYC was a fascinating combination. Here I continued to work in the international transportation biz and was certified in handling hazardous materials.
In 2003 we moved to Atlanta, GA and I continued working in this fast paced environment. During that time I was TSA certified, offering a high customer service level with great attention to details working with US Customs. I worked for major international companies, handling million dollar accounts
My spare time in ATL I spent with our new addition a puppy Golden Retriever, whom I trained and loved to spent time with her at agility. We also enjoyed the outside, our pool, meeting with friends and traveling. During this time we started to buy houses to rent and resale. That started my interest in Real Estate.
Missing the closeness to the beach and warmer weather, in 2013 we started to build a house in Rotonda West, FL, where we moved to in 2014. Here I decided to get my Real Estate license to help my clients with selling their homes or help them find the perfect home they desire. My ability to speak perfect German was so far a great benefit for my German customers and will be for future clients. High customer service is a must.
