Lavalur: About us

Value | Valuation | Appreciation.

Christina Aenishänslin, Owner and Managing Director 

My passion for property was piqued long ago. It was over 40 years ago in Tschierv in the Romansh-speaking Val Müstair. In old pictures you can see me repairing a retaining wall with my trowel and work clothes even back then. I later spent many years in the tourism industry, where I am still considered the expert for Swiss group accommodations. In a variety of different roles, I was responsible for numerous renovations, conversions and transactions for properties. I complemented my master’s degrees in economics (University of Basel) and international studies (University of Sydney) with a CAS FH in property valuation and thereby laid the groundwork for Lavalur. 


Like my passion for property, our company name also has its roots in Rhaeto-Romance. LAVALUR describes both our activity and our mission in a single word. LAVALUR means both ‘value’ and ‘appreciation’. We appraise the value of your assets with appreciation!
