After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Central Florida, Helga earned her second degree from the prestigious New York School of Interior Design. She offers encyclopedic knowledge, not only of the real estate market, but also of how to present properties in the best light. Born in Brazil, Helga lived in eight different countries growing up, which has given her a deep appreciation for the importance of home. With international exposure moving around the world, she developed an early interest in interior design and later translated that into a career as she worked in one of the largest architecture and design firms in the world prior to entering the real estate business. Her nomadic background has also provided her with an international world view and the ability to speak four languages, including English, Spanish, Portuguese and French.
When searching for apartments, it can be difficult envision the potential of an empty space. Helga assists her clients from visualizing to implementing their aesthetic into a functional home that reflects their taste and lifestyle. Her goal is always to understand her client’s needs and transform their vision into reality.
Helga currently works as part of the Key Ventures Team at the prestigious Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, helping her clients find and create the perfect space in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and is serving as director of the New York Re-Think Council.
