Gabba Schwencke, a Dutch Millennial who works in relocation and
high end apartment rental for expats. Gabba arrived in China 9
years ago on a whim and got started in real estate sales after a
gruelling start. He has been consistently finding high quality
housing for expats and their multinational employers since then,
and has a wealth of knowledge of the China real estate
- Gabba’s initial contact with China and why he
decided to move to Shanghai 9 years ago.
Gabba landed a job in real estate sales totally by chance, and how
he almost got fired after 2 weeks.
Gabba’s work entails - not only renting out expensive apartments to
wealthy expats but also providing the complete expat relocation
it’s like being practically the only foreigner real estate agent in
Shanghai, and what Gabba’s edge is.
tremendous difference in quality and price between high end
apartments and average apartments for foreigners in

that are becoming very common in Shanghai.
