Raging Gracefully: All About Home Swapping

A Conversation with Alexandra Humbel

Nina Collins hosts a conversation about home swapping with Alexandra Humbel of People Like Us,



From Alexandra:

I am passionate about connecting: human beings, shared interests, knowledge, ideas, and even dots. I thrive on creating opportunities and getting things done. I'm thrilled to initiate and nurture actions for good. Transform energy into results. Communication is at the base of human interactions, so I guess my role in this world is to help people, as a transition coach, and organizations, as a communication expert.

I fell in love with the concept of home swap in 2010, when I listed my home on a platform and got an inquiry I could not refuse. After an unforgettable exchange between my apartment in Paris and a mind-blowing villa in Costa Rica, I became an advocate of home swap. I helped the concept get traction in Europe.

Since then, I have enjoyed weekends in Rome and London, school vacations with my kids in Britany and the French Riviera, Summers in Santa Barbara Hermosa Beach, and many more.

People Like Us is the most authentic expression of what a home exchange community can be. I joined the Founder Drew Seitam one year ago because we share the same vision of what it takes to build up and serve the world's most trusted home swap community.

I am an experienced Communication Expert with a demonstrated history of working internationally in fashion and hospitality, serving industry leaders such as Ralph Lauren, LVMH, and Accor.  My education focused on Arts, Entertainment, and Media Management from Paris Dauphine University, London City University, and the University of Austin, Texas.

I currently serve as President of Feminin Pluriel, one of the pioneer international business women’s networks, founded in Paris in 1992.
