Marianne Schulze is a freelance journalist and editor of “SPH Newsletter.” For almost two decades, she has been covering topics relating to urbanization and the property industry, with a focus on the countries in central and eastern Europe. She also readily gets to grips with wider issues and those of more general interest, not allowing herself to be limited to specific markets, segments, or even subject-matter that is only relevant to the property industry. As a writer, she is sensitive to language and is an avid reader. She enjoys immersing herself in other cultures and broadening her horizons, in geographical terms and beyond. Her two cats and garden balance out her heavily intellectual work, offering her the chance to get out and about in the fresh air.
