About Me

A native of Germany, Petra remained in her home country until after graduating from college in Frankfurt am Main in Germany with emphasis in Agriculture. Petra worked for former Chancellor Helmut Kohl in the German Agriculture Department of Foreign Affairs.

Petra immigrated to America some 40 years ago landing in wine country where she has practiced real estate for the majority of that time.  Petra has been licensed to practice real estate in California since 1985.  Over the years, Petra has become well versed in various real estate types.  Certainly, quite proficient with conventional residential real estate, Petra also has extensive experience in estates, country property, vineyards and more complex real estate transactions, including a winery or two. 

Petra has called Napa Valley home for ±40 years and loves the challenge of positioning her listings within the market for success or finding that perfect property with great terms for her buyer clients.

Having joined Engel & Völkers in February 2020, Petra is so very excited to have a new set of services to provide her clients…it sort-of feels like a home coming to her; a perfectly suited union featuring the focus of  her new real estate family with a flair of European culture blending perfectly with her forever home here in Napa Valley.  Petra plans to elevate her level of service with EV by collaborating with fellow Advisors to bring the best service possible to her clients.

Petra is a member of all the appropriate associations including Napa Association of Realtors, Sonoma Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors.
