Hi, I’m James. I’m orignally from the UK and I’ve spent 12 happy years as an expat in Germany.
During that time, I had 3 different corporate jobs, bought 2 properties, sold one, got a mortgage, filed my own taxes, have been both a tenant and a landlord, started my own business and, most importantly, along the way actually experienced German culture and what makes the country tick.
I have also helped friends do most of the above.
I hold a C2 German certificate from the Goethe Institut and can research topics in German without being dependent upon third parties.
Most importantly, I know how things work in “real Germany” outside of the Berlin expat bubble.
