The Heart of Europe master-planned leisure tourism island destination has strengthened its sales leadership team with a series of appointments, including appointing Gabriela Rizova as its new head of sales for the project. 

Rizova, who will be leading the sales operations for The Heart of Europe, was formerly sales director of real estate developer Azizi Developments. She will lead the sale of the Phase 2 of the project, the asset price of which has jumped due to its differentiated offering and the increased popularity of island tourism properties that fetch higher return on investment, the company said in a statement.

Announcing the appointment, chairman of the developer spearheading the project, Kleindienst Group, Josef Kleindienst, said: “Rizova’s rich sales experience will help us to achieve a higher sales target this year – a landmark year for The Heart of Europe when we deliver the Phase 1 of the iconic and sustainable tourism second home destination that will attract a large number of residents and foreign tourists. 

As we prepare ourselves to commercially open the Phase 1 of the project that is almost sold out, we are also preparing to launch the sales campaign for the Phase 2 of the project. We will continue to announce highly differentiated new projects within the destination. With the new leadership in sales strategy and operations, we expect to deliver the full project by 2023, as planned.”

Speaking about the appointment, Rizova said: "What excites me is that this rare project offers a higher return on investment, the leisure tourism aspect, the unique second home offering, its prime location and the developer’s vision and strong commitment to sustainability. 

The size of the portfolio and the expected footfall on the island will also contribute to sustain the value of the properties whilst offering long-term capital appreciation to investors.”
