Born in Portugal, Sofía’s innate passion for hospitality, interior design and travel is confirmed by over 26 years of experience and success in her field. Having spent most of her colourful career working as an interior designer for major upscale Portuguese hotel chains, she has the eye and impeccable taste necessary for inspecting and evaluating properties as they come on board to join the TripWix collection.
She is based in Lisbon and will be reviewing homes primarily in Portugal as well as other countries in Europe.
To find out more about Sofía, read how she describes herself: “I consider myself ‘open to the world’; that is, I have a natural curiosity and an insatiable urge to travel which has meant that other cultures and people have inspired and shaped me throughout my career.
My ability to work under pressure and my positive attitude — which are the result of a mixture of determination and perseverance —, my knack for clear communication, resilience, and the ease with which I can work in a close-knit team, all help me to undertake complex projects which require much more than technical or academic proficiency. On top of which, my zest for life leads me ever-forward. With such a skill set, I am naturally drawn to providing consultancy services, whose end product is the combination of talent, vision, and sheer commitment.
I also truly believe that each of us must find meaning in our work. Our best work always comes about when we know we are working towards something greater than simply fulfilling a contract or a job – when what we are creating can improve other people’s lives,
My love of learning and innate curiosity means that I constantly reach out and embrace new areas of thought and work. I use social intelligence to network with my peers, whilst remaining open to emerging possibilities that might broaden my experiences. Some of the things that inspire me most in life are:
- Travel – to live, feel and taste new experiences and sensations
- Appreciation of beauty and excellence – in all its forms
- The yearning to be of service in a way that is simply larger than myself
- Doing work that is meaningful and fills me with a sense of purpose as I help people fulfil their dreams on a daily basis doing something that really matters and makes a difference.
