Although German by Nationality, Hans was born in West Africa (Conakry, Guinea), and raised around the world. New York was the city that captivated him and he called home for many years, while working his way up the ladder in the music business.
After retiring from a successful career with various record companies, Hans moved his family to South West Florida in 2004. Marco Island seemed like a place where his young children would be safe from harm, and benefit from an excellent public school system.
After partnering with Marco Scola as an independent sales team under the previous owner, Hans and Marco decided to purchase the brokerage, in order to make it a better, stronger, and more competitive company, and a better and more functional environment for the hundreds of agents now working with the company throughout South Florida.
When not working or chasing after his kids, Hans enjoys Scuba Diving and flying in the co-pilot seat of Marco's private plane.
In addition, Hans is very passionate about offshore boating, and is on the board of directors for a fantastic charity called Fort Myers Offshore, Inc. Ft. Myers Offshore, Inc. is Charity whose membership consists of a group of offshore boating enthusiasts in Southwest Florida, who are dedicated to raising funds each year to help worthy high school graduates continue their education at institutions of higher learning, including colleges and universities.
