Claudia Brooke spent her childhood in Germany. She was raised by parents who grew up during World War II with little love and even less security in their hearts. To Claudia, home felt merely like the roof over her head. It took making deep connections with friends, developing love and understanding for herself, and finally moving to a different continent for her to understand that home is where your heart is.
Her holistic approach to life and work came about when she began studying Traditional Chinese Medicine, Reiki and Feng Shui. The Eastern philosophy of the world connects everything and anything to each other. Traveling the world and a deep cultural exchange with people from across the globe helped her realize that the most important things in life aren’t really "things". Going for what your heart desires and being of service to others is where true joy is found. Claudia helps you bring your vision from heart to home.
Claudia has always been interested in how people live. As a four year old in Germany, she walked around the neighborhood her family had just moved to, ringing doorbells, asking her new neighbors if she could see their home. Years later, when working in sales and customer service, she was often complimented for her abilities, yet, selling the products never truly sparked an interest. One day, she saw a real estate brokerage sign offering pre-licensing classes. And when a friend handed her the books for those classes, the journey to become a Realtor® began.
Prior to real estate, Claudia spent 10 years in project and international event management, where she honed her networking skills. Today, she uses that experience to connect her real estate clients to professionals who collaborate to ensure that your transition is smooth and your home is everything you envisioned.
Claudia lives a conscious life of honesty, respect and appreciation for the people and things that surround her. She takes a mindful approach to guiding people throughout the entire real estate process. And although she leads with her heart, her astute understanding of the process (including its pitfalls) make her one tough researcher and negotiator.
Claudia specializes in “green” homes. Although in Maryland still in it’s fledgeling stages, zero or low energy houses, “Passive Houses”, and healthy building materials are on the rise. Consider Claudia your resource for all things “green” in the real estate market. Her tenacity and compassion will win you over the first time you meet her.
Today, Claudia lives in Baltimore City. She enjoys spending time on the hiking trails surrounding Baltimore, traveling, flea markets and yard sales, and Salsa dancing.
