Andreas Elsenhans


In 1931, the novelist Clare Boothe Luce wrote that, “the height of sophistication is simplicity.”

As a boy, I learned that lesson from my father. He built hotels across the length and breadth of Europe and, regardless of the architectural stylings appropriate to the region, there was always one aspect that remained the same. Simplicity. But what did he mean by that?

Simplicity meant that certain standards, once established, were always observed. A belief that when clients received high levels of service and close attention to detail, they would happily return season after season. The understanding that when culture and style is added to an individual’s character and applied to an interior, a living space is created.

I took those experiences and applied them in the world of interior design. For 15 years, I had the pleasure and responsibility of working with clients to create interiors within their homes that both reflected their personalities and seamlessly meshed with the physical space. During that time, I came to understand more fully a famous quote by Maya Angelou. She said that, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will not forget how you made them feel.”

That’s a simple concept, and it was one I was determined to practice as I entered the world of luxury real estate. The process of buying or selling a house can be unpleasant and stressful, but by providing a genuine European sense of service and style, I was confident that I could transform the experience into something incomparable. As a result, my clients always receive expert guidance, masterful negotiation techniques, and an innate understanding of their individual needs.
