As for her goals for the next few years, Ms. Grantner says: "I have to admit that I am not one of those people who set specific long-term goals. It is important to me to drive the development of EHL Immobilien Bewertung GmbH forward every day together with my great team. From my daily work as a real estate service manager, I see the entire personnel area as one of the most important topics. And this is indeed not a future topic, but requires full attention right now. In addition, the topic of ESG will, of course, significantly determine the next few years for all those working in the industry."
