Lene started in Estate Agency on the South coast more years ago than she would like to remember and took a break for a few years working for a Commercial Energy Assessor involved in carbon and energy reduction in all types of building including Sustainable Homes which she found hugely interesting. However, Lene is glad to now be back in Estate Agency as she has a real passion for property, she is always delighted to hand over keys to a new home owner and loves meeting and building relationships with both vendors and purchasers alike. Recently she and her husband have built their own home with their focus on sustainability and renewable energy but Lene is never happier than when her extended family are gathered round the table enjoying a traditional Danish feast.
