He was educated in Europe and acquired his European real estate license early on, then widened his horizons rather quickly through worldwide business arrangements in different continents. Torsten has been conducting complex deals in New York and Florida for European and local clients for the past eight years. Throughout the years he has developed a strong connection to many overseas premium real estate markets, and has built knowledge and referral networks for overseas buyers and sellers that is unprecedented. His in-depth understanding of those markets makes him a perfect adviser for clients from all walks of life.
Torsten Krines focuses on client needs by putting himself in the client's shoes. He values feedback and is always looking for a long-term relationship rather than a quick deal.
