“There is no other place to find more comfort and extravagance than in a home, a luxury home.”
Since 1970 AMSI offers sophisticated, elegant, modern and charming housing in San Francisco Bay Area. When thinking of luxury most people indeed think of something that is expensive and unique. Yet, everyone’s definition is different and for some people luxury is simply the state of great comfort and extravagant living.
A home is and should be treated of great value not just because it gives people the comfort and space to rest, but because it’s the heart and soul of everyone’s life and dreams. Therefore a place should indeed have some great comfort and extravagance. Whether you or your clients are looking for a home with striking views, a home in the woodlands, an elegant cottage, a grand estate outside of San Francisco, our real estate inventory offers “that certain something” you are looking for.

For many years AMSI has been offering marketing, accounting and property management internships to young people from all over the world. Every intern had an impact on the daily business and has become a part of the AMSI family. We were wondering about their reasons to go abroad. Moreover what their overall experience is and how they benefit from taking their internship at AMSI.
Today we asked Solene; an International Business student from France who joined AMSI for a marketing internship.
I’m Solene and I’m completing my third month of internship with AMSI in San Francisco, which has been a great experience so far. I can say, that I definitely don’t have any regrets choosing this at times crazy city. I have had several experiences going abroad, in the US and beyond, whether professional related or just for vacation. Besides it‘s always a pleasure to travel around this country and start from scratch in a new city. Each place here has its own vibe and energy; San Francisco is no exception. People in California are very friendly and welcoming. It is some kind of a melting pot, and you instantly feel at ease no matter what your background is. Moreover, I barely can compare this city to any other that I’ve ever been at in America. San Francisco has its own culture, a mix of history and new age.
There are several reasons why I chose AMSI in San Francisco. This city has a big history in architecture; therefore it came close to me to choose a real estate company to intern with. This gave me the opportunity to get on the field and experience the city and the great buildings and places that it has to offer, which made this experience even more worth that it already was. Besides, the company made it so easy for us to put our skills to good use, that this experience could only be rewarding in any imaginable way. We interns and our accomplishments get valued constantly; they pay great attention to everybody’s achievements.
Thus, the main things I have learned through this experience are accountability and integrity. Those are two values most people tend to forget today as they take everything for granted. Truth is, it is not and should not be. For the past months I have been accountable for something else than only myself, as I had been entrusted with some serious tasks I had to take great care of. Besides, when you work within a team, developing those values are quite important if you want the journey to go as smoothly and the work to be as efficient as possible.
I feel that I had to carry out this opportunity, taking this internship. It has brought so much to me; there are definitely a lot of things that I am going to take home, to France, with me. May it be the memory of a great team, following this American Corporate culture that I really enjoy every time I get to chance to work for an US group, the feeling of belonging somewhere and being part of a big family and of course, the sweet little nothings that make a trip a once in a lifetime experience, eventually.

For many years AMSI has been offering marketing, accounting and property management internships to young people from all over the world. Every intern had an impact on the daily business and has become a part of the AMSI family. We were wondering about their reasons to go abroad. Moreover what their overall experience is and how they benefit from taking their internship with AMSI. We asked the interns…
Today we start with Aurelie; an International Business student from France who joined AMSI for a marketing internship.
I chose to do my internship with AMSI for several reasons. One of them was because I was really interested in the tasks and projects that I could be working on. Furthermore I wanted to work in an American company and experience the American corporate culture. Since I had a lot of good feedback from former interns, I was convinced that AMSI was the right place for my internship.
What I like about AMSI is the work environment. They encourage you to bring new ideas and always give you feedback on your tasks and projects, which gives me the opportunity to know my progress and grow. Therefore I felt really happy to come in and work there every morning.
AMSI helps its interns to gain valuable professional experience, but since we are all from different backgrounds we also help them to bring in new ideas and a fresh look to the company.
It is not only a great professional experience, but also a really amazing life experience. Living for three month in San Francisco is the best way to discover the American culture. As a simple tourist you probably couldn’t see and experience many things as I did while living here. Moreover I met so many interesting people and each of them has become a part of my experience. This unique experinece changed my life! A dream I hope would never end…

AMSI works with highly-skilled, reliable, ambitious and fun interns from all over the world. Most of the interns are from Europe, but many are also from China, Korea, Japan and many other countries.
The AMSI Intern Program includes a vast variety of duties in each department; from Marketing to Property Management to Accounting. During their 3, 6, 12 and sometimes 18 month internships, AMSI involves the interns in every day tasks and challenging projects to encourage them to reach their goals. AMSI’s goal is to support them in growing professionally and personally, whether it is to get to know more about the American working culture, improving their language skills or in gaining a great life experience in a foreign country. While the interns learn a lot during their internships, AMSI in return gains much as well due to the great knowledge, skills and personalities, which every single intern brings to the company.
AMSI CFO and Broker Robb Fleischer says: “It is a great opportunity to work with young and ambitious people from all over the world who bring their very own culture to the company. For AMSI it is gratifying to watch the intern’s learning process, how they improve their language skills, how the individuals achieve their goals and how they help AMSI grow further. It has always been an advantage for AMSI to build long-term friends. This kind of bonding process causes some sort of family atmosphere, which means that working at AMSI is challenging as well as comfortable at the same time.”
Since the intern program started about 8 years ago, the people who work at AMSI have had the wonderful opportunity to meet terrific interns from all over the world. Oftentimes it is not easy for the AMSI staff to say “goodbye, auf Wiedersehen or au revoir” to many of those wonderful and fascinating interns. This is especially so after seeing them growing and becoming a part of the AMSI family. But as Fleischer says to every intern at his or her farewell ceremony: “You will always be a part of the AMSI family”. It definitely is true and the interns go home still being a part of AMSI due to the great impact the experience has had on their lives and the impact they have had on AMSI during their internship.
