Stephanie Lehrmann, the owner of the Location Properties S.L. real estate company, has lived on Lanzarote for twenty years, almost as long as her Irish colleague, Laura Sweeney. Two strong women, who over the years have built up a sound grounding in the real estate business and accumulated a vast wealth of experience. Stephanie, originally from Bottrop, came to the island on holiday at the age of seventeen and met her future husband, John Walsh, who ran an estate agency. She fell in love with John and with the island, and stayed. Laura, who already had experience as an estate agent in Dublin, also decided to settle here. Laura first worked for a project developer, before setting up her own estate agency. When the two of them met it was obvious that if they worked together their combined energies could be very beneficial both for their business and for their customers. No sooner said than done: now Stephanie and Laura's customers are benefiting from their depth of experience and from their impressive language skills - both of them are just as comfortable in Spanish as in their mother tongues of German, Irish and English. Completing the team, there is Viennese-born Elisabeth Dimitrijeevic, who acts as an agent for rental properties, and last but not least, Stephanie's husband, John Walsh, whose many years of experience and useful contacts on the island are an important factor in the team's success. Stephanie and Lauren’s work ethic is all about flexibility, service and commitment to the customer. "We're don't just sell, we look after our customers, whatever problems come up," says Stephanie, who can rightly be proud of the fact the most of her clients have become firm friends of the company.
