Although Jens was born in Germany, he spent most of his life in Canada, growing up in Niagara-on-the-Lake. He attended the University of Waterloo and in 1991 finished Chiropractic college in Toronto to run a private practice for over 12 years in St. Catharines, Ontario.

Jens developed a taste for real estate early on in life having managed several apartments while going through school. Later, he bought investment properties himself as well as managed his parents' real estate company after they retired. In 2006 Jens moved to Cabarete and immediately partnered with Cabarete Real Estate, a small successful real estate company formed in 2003, later attaching the Remax International brand in 2012 under sole proprietorship.

For the past 10 years, Jens has dedicated himself to all aspects of real estate in the Dominican Republic and, with a genuine desire to help has earned himself a high level of trust with clients. If you are considering an investment in a foreign country and want to feel comfortable in the process you have come to the right place.

Jens Knof, Canadian Olympic Coach

As a world champion in freestyle windsurfing and Olympic coach at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Jens fell in love with Cabarete over twenty years ago while competing in the 1st ever professional windsurfing competition in the Dominican Republic. Cabarete had just been discovered; the year: 1986. . . and he stayed the summer with his university sweetheart (now his wife and with 3 children). After traveling much of the world, Jens and  Eva concluded that Cabarete is the best place to live in the world for their family. They are an excellent resource for anyone considering the same.

From Jens's album:

As hosts, we made sure they would never forget this trip. Based out of Millennium, we went caving, horseback riding, hiking to waterfalls, dancing, partying, and Keith even treated fans with a few impromptu drum solos at Sea Horse Ranch and Lifestyle Holidays.
