Real Estate Advisor (RA)
German, French, Spanish, Italian
Tobias has been a real estate advisor for Engel & Völkers Honolulu ever since he obtained his real estate license in 2018. Born and raised in Switzerland, joining this global brand with German roots was a natural fit.
Tobias’ professional experience is multifaceted. After graduating Summa Cum Laude from Hawaii Pacific University in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts with emphasis on visual communications, Tobias spent the vast majority of his professional career in the creative media production and advertising community in Hawaii - most recently as the General Manager of 1013 integrated. Tobias understands the power of the word, the picture, sound, and the sum of its parts. He has taken on roles and responsibilities ranging from creative to technical, clerical to managerial and everything in-between. He has worn just about every hat in the marketing space, servicing non-profits and multinational corporations alike. Tobias understands the intricacies of effective communication strategies through
various channels with diverse target audiences.
His recent diversification into real estate has strengthened his stance on marketing matters, while reinforcing the need for a fine balance between creativity, attention to detail, and service while maintaining a fiduciary duty towards his clients.
Born and raised in Switzerland in a multicultural family, Tobias grew up with the privilege of being exposed to world affairs, a host of cultures, viewpoints, philosophies and languages. Fluent in English and his native Swiss German and German, Tobias also has extensive conversational knowledge of French, Spanish and Italian.
Engel & Völkers embodies the concept that the world is a global village, that life is about the human connection. Real estate is a people business.
And few things bring Tobias more joy than building meaningful relationships with people from all walks of life. He tries to find the connection, the smallest of commonalities in any interaction he has. His emphasis on the importance of interpersonal relationships lays the groundwork for satisfactory real estate experiences. He will go above and beyond to exceed his clients’ expectations. These values, along with his background in media and marketing, have laid a solid foundation for his career in real estate.
Outside of work, Tobias loves nothing more than spending time with his wife and two sons. Calling the windward side of O’ahu home, he recharges his batteries spending quality time with his family camping, hiking, swimming and exploring the great outdoors.
