A Multicultural Journey to Success

Originally from Mexico City, Nicole has been a Madrid resident for the past three years and a pivotal member of the Homelike team since June last year. Her journey at Homelike began with managing sales for the Spanish, UK, and Ireland markets, and quickly expanded to include the DACH region (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland). Nicole’s role didn’t stop there; she played a key role in launching our services in Portugal, Denmark, and Italy. Today, she focuses on introducing Homelike to new markets, continually broadening our horizon.

Morning Rituals for a Productive Start

Nicole starts her day with a calming routine, choosing between tea or coffee accompanied by light breakfast and soothing morning music. Before diving into her busy schedule, she engages in a “big huddle” with her team to catch up on weekend stories or discuss current projects, ensuring everyone is aligned and motivated for the week ahead.

A Day in the Life of a Sales Manager

No two days are the same for Nicole. Her responsibilities vary from intense meeting days with professionals across the globe—including onboarding partners from the UK and Switzerland, to sales discussions with potential suppliers in New York and Dubai. Nicole thrives on the diversity of her role, adapting to different time zones, cultures, and sales tactics required for each unique client.

Typical Tasks of a Sales Manager Include:

  • Networking and Meetings: Engaging with partners and suppliers worldwide.
  • Strategy and Coordination: Working closely with the team to align on weekly goals and strategies.
  • Operational Tasks: Handling emails, preparing presentations, and launching email campaigns.

The Rewards and Challenges of Sales Management

Nicole finds great joy in meeting and collaborating with diverse suppliers and partners, from CEOs of major apartment complexes in major cities to directors managing thousands of units across Europe. The scope and impact of these interactions are what she cherishes most about her job.

However, the role is not without its challenges. Tailoring the right sales strategy for each supplier, considering their specific needs and cultural nuances, stands as her most significant hurdle. Despite this, Homelike’s flexibility and commitment to smooth partner onboarding make these challenges manageable and rewarding.

Balancing Professional and Personal Life

When she’s not navigating the complexities of international sales, Nicole enjoys a balanced life filled with activities that recharge her. Whether it’s yoga, pilates, swimming, or just enjoying the sunny outdoors of Madrid with friends, she ensures her life is full of energy and happiness.

Nicole’s story is just one of many at Homelike that highlight the vibrant and impactful work culture we foster. Our employees are not only encouraged to pursue their professional ambitions but are also supported in maintaining a fulfilling personal life.
