You have been in Real Estate for over 30 years : is this the CAREER you dreamed of ?
Yes, because I come from a family of PROPERTY MANAGERS and I always had a lot of respect for my parents’ profession. My father introduced me very early to the difficulties of this activity and helped me to understand the notion of work well done and the personal satisfaction which comes from it.
You are an ONLY CHILD, which often signifies more marked individualism than in a family with several siblings: did you suffer from this?
This situation probably left its mark on me and is certainly the reason why I wanted to break from this determinism by taking an interest in others:
Through traditional clubs or associations offering services but also in a more challenging environment by becoming a special needs teacher for children in danger of delinquency, which I did for several years.
This experience has remained embedded in me, and this is why my professional assistance has always been open to those who I understand to be suffering or in need.
Were your YOUNG YEARS more oriented towards your studies or towards recreational activities?
I studied Law which required some sacrifices relating to my leisure activities… this without any feeling of deprivation: I can strike a balance and am able notably to curb my naturally festive temperament.
When I was young I had a taste for physical exertion and a sense of sporting challenge: this is why, surrounded as I was by snow-covered mountains, I became passionate about skiing, and even somewhat addicted to it… This will surprise more than one… but I have a trainer’s qualification from the French Skiing Federation.
Moreover, I did my national service with the « Chasseurs Alpins » (mountain infantry).
There is a scoop for 2014: I made my come-back to the slopes of VALBERG… a few days ago… !
Did this way of life influence your career in terms of MANAGEMENT?
I am an independent who cannot function alone: therefore as everyone does, at some point, I acquired an « associate »… but this formula soon showed its limits in terms of satisfaction and real synergy.
My reality is that I prefer to turn to partners:
From now on, this is the road map of IMMOREVEL.
In what way did your previous association lead you to an assessment which rhymes with DECEPTION ?
The world we live in, particularly the GALAXY of the COTE D’AZUR REAL ESTATE, demands very rapidly from those who wish to live from it and survive… real VISTA:
I am one of these fortunate people and I’m going to give you 2 examples of my anticipation:
-recently and at a key moment in my life, I made the management decision to introduce the concept of « document déstructuré » (unstructured document) well before my colleagues who are just beginning to use it: this management tool which is extremely innovative and has perplexed more than one, is today an asset for IMMOREVEL.
-at another moment similar to the one previously mentioned, I decided to enlarge my Mediterranean scope by installing part of my activities in Tunisia: the democratic tsunami which has since occurred has not hampered me and in a certain way, has strengthened my APTITUDE for risk taking.
This position which for some would be considered ADVENTURE… does it worry your family?
I have, of course, a duty to protect my family and I do it by demonstrating on the one hand my sense of responsibility in this matter and on the other hand, above all, optimism which in my case is a sign of my AUTHENTICITY.
In addition, a have the good fortune to have a wife today who not only accompanies me with serenity along the road which leads to our fulfillment, but who also has taught me to share her WONDERMENT at the world around us and the respect she has for the FREEDOM of each individual.
We discover you to be thoughtful and altruistic… although your reputation verges on the psychology of a PITBULL … ! How do you reconcile these two aspects?
I have a job which is very difficult in terms of relations to others… and even more so today for societal reasons:
Ad time goes on I have to find the right tempo… I work on this more than you would imagine… Incidentally this « exercise in COMMUNICATION » is evidence of that fact:
I suffer from time to time from a deficit of positive appreciation because people don’t really know me.
