Seppo first studied Psychology and later specialized in Sports Physiology in Oslo. Since the age of five Seppo has been a keen ice hockey player and has been an excellent all round sportsman.
After studying and working for 14 years in Norway, Seppo moved to Spain in 1987 where he gained experience in the Spanish real estate market, leading him in 1990 to purchase the German real estate franchisee DSI DR Stange for the Algarve in Portugal.
After five successful years in Algarve, Seppo was headhunted in 1995 by Royal Resorts & Karma Development as a Project Director for a new real estate operation in the Philippines and six years later he took charge of their operations in Australia and later Bali, Indonesia. After Bali, the family moved to Singapore. Royal Resorts and Karma Developments has build thousands of luxury Resort apartments and villas as well as small Boutique Hotels around the South East Asia. In 2010 after 15 very successful years in Asia, Seppo and his family returned to their “old home”, the Costa del Sol in Spain.
On the Costa del Sol in 2012, Seppo was co-founder and MD of the DV Group, based in El Rosario, Marbella. In 2016 he set himself up with Peter as an independent property consultant of Costa del Sol Properties & Consulting and enjoys working with a small team of real estate professionals, customers and investors. In addition to his native Finnish, Seppo is also fluent in Swedish and Norwegian, as well speaking excellent English.
Seppo is naturally humble and positive by nature, having dealt with all kinds of people from every corner of the world, each with different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. His endless thirst and curiosity for knowledge has given him invaluable advantage in all the industries in which he has worked and, with more than 30 years involvement in the Spanish and international property business, Seppo has gained a detailed knowledge of the real estate market. In addition, his lifelong involvement around the world in varied political, social and economic climates has enriched him with a broad understanding of life and all its challenges.
Seppo takes great pride in being trustworthy and honest in both his business and personal life, in general.
