When I began thinking about opening up my own real estate company many years ago, I wanted a name that would be meaningful and easy to remember. 'Gramm Realty' certainly was an option, but there are other Gramms in real estate in other parts of the world, and I wanted something totally unique. My wife and I brainstormed for days, weeks, even months before we finally found a name that fit all the characteristics: Globella.
'Bella' means 'beautiful' in Italian and Spanish.
'Globus' is Latin for 'sphere' (and the German word, 'globus' also means 'globe' or 'world').
When you put the two together, they become 'Globella,' and that stands for 'Beautiful World.'
Why is this meaningful? Ever since I've been old enough to remember, I've always been in awe of the beautiful world we live in. I was born in the lake-filled state of Minnesota. I grew up in the desert of Arizona. I've hiked the amazing Grand Canyon in Arizona and been to Waimea Canyon in Kauai, Hawaii.
I've visited the Austrian Alps, where my wife was born and raised. I've been lucky enough to have seen the glaciers of Alaska, camped at the water's edge on Lake Powell, driven the back country of upstate New York, hiked to Los Arcos (or Land's End) in Cabo San Lucus, and felt the mist from Niagara Falls.
I've snowboarded the mountains of Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada, California, Arizona, Austria, British Columbia, and Alberta. I've driven cross-country from Bloomington, IL to San Diego, CA in a college-friend's "project Jeep" without stopping to sleep.
I've visited Africa, India, Thailand, the Maldives, the Seychelles, Venice, Paris, etc. And I've studied physics, upper-level mathematics, biology, chemistry, and human anatomy and physiology.
In all these experiences, there is one thing that I can't deny: The world we live in is an absolutely phenomenal place!
In naming my company Globella I acknowledge the incredible beauty we find all over planet Earth, and I hope that the homes my clients buy are small symbols of the beautiful world we call home.
At its very core, a home is a place of refuge and shelter. I have found that the home I live in either contributes to my happiness or detracts from it, and my hope is that my clients find a home that truly adds happiness to their lives. Ultimately, I want my clients to still be saying "I'm so glad I bought this house" many years after making the purchase, and so I do everything in my power to make that your reality.
OK, now that I've laid my heart on my sleeve...
Globella's original motto was 'Beautiful Home. Beautiful World.' I truly believe that San Diego is a wonderful place to call home, and I enjoy my job helping San Diego's home buyers!
