Growing up in rural Florida, Petra dreamed of moving to the big city since a young child. Through her dance successes, she was able to realize that dream when she was offered a position with the prestigious Manhattan Fred Astaire Dance Studio in 2014. Petra fell in love with the city instantly and that romance only continued to grow as she began to take a serious interest in the vast array of architecture on constant display. From distinct areas like Tribeca in lower Manhattan and the villages of Chelsea, Greenwich and Soho, to the exclusive addresses of Billionaires Row and the Upper West and East Sides, there’s truly no place like New York. Petra’s deep appreciation for the history and unique stories which each building has to share, opened up a new and unexpected passion in real estate. This same draw to the aesthetically appealing also led her to work for one of the most revered fashion
houses in the world, PRADA, where in her marketing role she further refined her eye for luxury, sophistication, and style. As such, she enjoys remaining up to date on the latest home styles and trends while possessing a canny understanding of how to create an appealing environment.
An amicable and service-oriented person by nature, Petra takes true pleasure in assisting those around her in the achievement of their goals. This has been illustrated in both her professional and personal life— from the support which she’s lended family and friends, to leading her dance students to championship titles through her coaching efforts. Discreet and acting with the upmost levels of integrity and diligence, Petra offers unprecedented service to her clientele and goes above and beyond to assure their complete satisfaction through her White Glove Service. The processes of home buying and selling can sometimes be a very emotional experience which Petra understands this, and there applies real
empathy and intimate guidance. Petra firmly believes meaningful success originates from a genuine desire to assist others coupled with the determination to ensure the highest interests of her clients are always met.
On another note, being an avid animal lover, Petra finds added purpose in her work with not-for-profits where she assists them with their marketing and helps find placements in foster and forever homes. With her leisure time, Petra welcomes any opportunity to dance, horse-back ride, or sip a good cup of earl grey paired with an equally satisfying book.
