Gabriel and Anne Mortimer, Ireland written by Gabriel and Anne Mortimer, Ireland on 19-02-2014 We have been clients of Anna and Mino for over 10 years now, ever since we first decided to buy a property for vacation and possibly retirement later in Tuscany. We finally opted for a nice house from plans during the World Cup finals of 2006, high on a hill with spectacular panoramic views. Throughout all our searching and researching,they have always been thoroughly professional, supportive, and helpful in every way, including several site visits, and with translational assistance for us foreigners, including steering us through the legal ramifications of purchasing, and with the banks, architects and engineers, and builders. They are perfectly suited to these tasks, not least because of her excellent command of English, but also because they treats clients as friends as much as buyers, and shows great interest, concern and commitment to all. And they do all this, and go the extra mile, willingly and with a smile and sense of humour, thus defusing the stress of purchasing from abroad, always inserting themselves as required as the vital link in transactions and communications. We would never consider going anywhere else in connection with real estate, so good has our experience been.
Mark & Jeremy, Volterra, Pisa, Tuscanywritten by Mark & Jeremy on 08-07-2015We have just completed the purchase of our farmhouse in Volterra Tuscany. This was a very complicated purchase due to various factors, but with the expert help and advice from Anna and Mino any problems were expertly dealt with. They were always available to answer any concerns we had and is extremely professional. I feel that this purchase would have fallen through had a less experienced agent been involved, so thank you Anna and Mino for ensuring all the issues were resolved so we could move into our dream Tuscan home.
When purchasing an apartment in Tuscany, we were very happy to have Anna and Mino to guide us along. They represent exactly what you need when buying a property in foreign country - the ultimate combination of professionalism, friendliness and good English! The help we received went far beyond what we expected, and she was tireless in their efforts. They helped our dream come true.

Hi, Anna and Mino - I´m so pleased, and I´m so sad...and I´m so grateful to you two for making the sale possible. Thank you! There were times when I thought - this is just too difficult, too frustrating...so thank you for staying with it. Thank you for being a pleasure to work with! I knew very quickly that I could trust you at every step of the way - even when the authorities were threatening my sanity ...(and probably yours, too) Thank you both for being totally focussed and professional, and always available to deal with the questions that you had already answered twenty times the day before. Thank you for your patience in steering me through the sometimes incomprehensible minefield of the commune´s rules (Actually, I´m still struggling with that one...) Thank you for being able to think outside the box when things got difficult Essential! And thank you for always being good humoured and calm - it´s an essential requirement for an estate agent, in my book. Derek (London) June 2017
