On a cold grey, rainy January 1, Andreas decided to take a dip in one of Copenhagen’s sea canals. Now it has become his 2021 intention to swim in the…

Mallorca Rentals Manager
I came to Deia and the west coast of Mallorca in January 2018 and instantly fell in love. Coming to Deia marked a big change in my life, as I left everything behind me in Denmark; my family, my job as a journalist at a national tv station – and my friends. But it wasn’t a difficult choice, because I knew I had an opportunity to come and work in a very special place. I had an opportunity to use my language skills, my social skills and also develop new skills. And, as I would soon realise, I had an opportunity to work with very special people.
Also, my partner was pregnant with our daughter, so everything was very magical; seeing the Deia church lit up at night for the first time, getting to know Charles Marlow’s truly unique selection of villas, getting to know my incredible new colleagues and waiting for a baby.
The Charles Marlow Way in Andreas Thau Loftager’s words
I take a lot of pride in how we try to do things at Charles Marlow. I was intrigued by the company from the moment I came across Patrick and Charlie, and it continues to amaze me how they implement and constantly reinforce values like work-life balance, sustainability, honesty, generosity and transparency into a sector which is famous – or infamous (at least in Denmark) – for going about doing business in a very different way.
To me, the ‘The Charles Marlow Way’ is that. No matter what we do and are up against, we don’t get diverted from that path. The end goal is to make our clients happy and enjoy both life and work while doing it. End of story. Having that common goal as a team gives us an incredible togetherness, and I believe our clients feel that energy.
My background is in the media, I’ve worked both in it and around it, meeting all kinds of people in various trades throughout my adult life. And while many of those people were certainly inspiring, I do think that I’ve found a group of people in Charles Marlow who do things in a way and with a spirit that I’ve rarely come across.
Taking Charles Marlow into the future
Since I came, so much has already happened; rentals has grown enormously, our Ibiza portfolio and market share increases each day, and we grow visibly stronger as a team and unit every day.
I think all that is just the beginning, though. I am so on board with our green visions and initiatives, and I can’t wait to see them take off and spread throughout society and our surroundings.
In the end, it’s incredibly giving to be part of a business where each individual and the whole unit visibly grows and learns every day. Tomorrow we will become even greater experts in what we do, than we are today. And we have fun doing it.
If you read this far, thank you. I hope you will stop by our office in Deia one day and say hello. I’d love to meet you and maybe help you find a beautiful villa to buy or rent. But if not, and it’s just a coffee and a chat – then that’s okay too.
