What do you like most in the profession of a luxury estate agent?
I am happy that I had an active role in setting up the real estate business in Bulgaria. Above all, I have always been guided by the sense of major responsibility for the clients who have laid their trust on me. A luxury estate agent can and should offer not only functionality, but a home created with a great sensitivity to loveliness, homeliness and cheerfulness. These spaces incite joy and indulgence, similar to works of art. This is what I like and what charges me with inspiration and devotion to work.
What in your opinion makes a real estate agent truly successful?
I try to deeply empathize with the excitements of the people I work with. I understand and acknowledge the importance of all those moments and processes which every client goes through, and do my best to create an atmosphere of respect and mutual trust. This helps me a lot in my work as an agent.
What does Unique Estates mean to you?
Unique Estates enabled me to take a deep look into myself and unfold my capabilities. This fills me with both desire and resolve to reassert and be up to the trust vested on me. I love my job and admire the incredible team of wonderful, ambitious people. I am happy to work with managers of the caliber of Vesela Ilieva and Svetoslava Georgieva. They are always not just few steps, but a few floors above everyone else in the business. We keep offering new ideas and always try to take onboard the latest IT developments.

What is ‘luxury’ nowadays?
In recent months, the notion of luxury has been strongly associated with the presence of nature at our home. Most clients are looking for a house with a yard, panoramic terrace or apartment with a garden. This is the theme of the season.
What makes a property a real home?
A property becomes a real home when it has been chosen with joy and faith that it will bring goodness and happiness. I try to make clients embrace the property on the wings of these beliefs. Nevertheless, what makes a home warm, welcoming and real is the atmosphere which the inhabitants will create in it.
What things in your own home are especially sentimental to you?
It is difficult to pinpoint specific items. My children have grown here, I have spent my life here — sometimes happy, sometimes sad and full of challenges, my history is all here. I love the neighbourhood I live in. It is infused with the fragrance of linden trees, with the smiles of my friends and neighbours, with the welcoming atmosphere of small cafés, restaurants and shops with attendants that have become acquaintances of mine.
