Ursula Muenzel: A Realtor Locally and Globally
Ursula Muenzel, Ph.D., takes her role as a certified corporate relocation specialist and luxury real estate professional very seriously. A licensed realtor in the State of Texas, a real estate broker in Germany, and a member of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate, Ursula is bilingual in German and English, has a good command of French, and has a basic knowledge of Portuguese and Greek. She is the realtor of choice for both international clients and native Houstonians, assisting sellers and buyers in River Oaks, Upper Kirby, Memorial Park, Rice Military, the Heights, Tanglewood, the Memorial Villages and West Memorial, the Energy Corridor, and Katy.
A resident of Houston for 15 years, Ursula is a native of Germany. She has lived in several other European countries as well as the Middle East, Africa, and Brazil. After a successful first career as a university professor and a position in the German Foreign Ministry, she joined Beth Wolff Realtors in 2013. Her international background and experience as a certified cross-cultural coach for international corporations provide her with a profound understanding of all facets of moving, whether within Houston, across the United States, or to (or from) another country.
Ursula’s own experiences when moving around the world taught her what excellent real estate service should be: “A good realtor goes beyond finding their client a place to live. They educate their clients about the city and the character of different neighborhoods, and then identify the ideal location which best fulfills the client’s needs,” she states.
Broad understanding of other cultures makes Ursula an excellent realtor for a city as diverse as Houston and her honed negotiation skills give real added value for her clients. “I am very determined and have sold some challenging properties. A ‘no’ is not acceptable for me,” she says.
A serious devotee of classical music, Ursula is a long-serving board member of the Houston Symphony League. She is a past president of the Consular League of Houston and is an active member of the Houston Committee on Foreign Relations and the World Affairs Council Houston. A frequent lecturer at the Women’s Institute of Houston, she has also lectured for the public and for docents at the Holocaust Museum Houston.
Ursula holds her Ph.D in modern history from Würzberg University. She has a grown daughter who graduated from The Awty School in Houston.
