Testimonials

Buying and selling a property represents an important moment, often a starting point for those who sell and those who buy. Thus, by helping our customers, we live with them the beginning of this that for many is a new phase of their life, especially for those who come to Italy to move to permanently.


The comments of our customers have significant importance to us that goes beyond the professional aspect, are our motivation and stimulation to do the best we can.

 

I came across CasaItalia by chance, while searching for a property to buy in Umbria. 
To be honest, my first impression when looking at their website was that this was a bit of a snobby agency for Russian millionaires, but that impression couldn't have been more wrong. Today, the purchase having already happened several months ago, I can say that I couldn't be more satisfied that I trusted them.  
At Casaitalia International, I experienced qualities rarely found these days: education, professionalism, competence and love for their work. 
Thanks again for everything, 
Andrea Gilioli 

 

We are very grateful to Casaitalia International for their expertise and professionalism. They succeeded in concluding the sale of our farmhouse in Umbria in a completely different way from previous agencies with whom we had been working on the sale for a long time. Casaitalia International, conversely, managed to attain a final offer of purchase within a few months (we hired them in November 2015 and the offer arrived in February 2016). Within this timescale, Casaitalia International, together with their team of specialists, helped us to resolve all of our property’s minor bureaucratic and cadastral issues.  Without this extra support the sale would not have been possible. Casaitalia International’s great professionalism was also demonstrated by the photos of the house and the advert on their website. This was all thanks to Casaitalia International’s owner Adolfo Giovanelli and his colleagues. I would recommend them to both Italian and overseas clients.

I have been working with Casaitalia for a long time, in fact, in 2010 I entrusted them with the sale of a farmhouse in Todi and in less than a year they had found a buyer. In October 2015 I entrusted them with another farmhouse in Todi, which I had restored and furnished, and in May of 2016 I signed the notary deed of sale. Adolfo and and Luca Giovanelli, the owners of Casaitalia, completely satisfied my expectations and those of the buyers, a Dutch family, who remain very happy with the choice of agency and their work. They continued to be professional and reliable throughout the process. They worked with me right up to the day of the signing of the deed, dealing with all the paperwork and helping both parties to prepare all the necessary documents for the sale of the house. All-round professionalism. I consider myself fortunate to have met them and to have had a professional relationship with them.

Until next time...

Having no experience in how the Italian real estate market works and what to take care of if you want to buy a house in Italy, Casaitalia guided us very professional throughout the whole process.

Starting of with a good selection of really nice houses and properties, followed by very professional organizing of viewings of the houses up to do or help with all the needed paperworks, the whole team of Casaitalia did an excellent job.

Our agent took the time to understand what we were looking for, he was always very fast in communication and very flexible during our visits. In fact the property we were actually buying he brought up to us after he had understood what we were looking for (even a bit before we knew ourselves).

Writing this in our new home in Italy I must say that we were extremely pleased with all the services Casaitalia provided.

Thanks a lot!

Our experience with CasaItalia has been very positive and we would highly recommend their services. We were given extremely professional, competent and fair advice, which led to the smooth completion of a relatively complex acquisition.

Having exchanged contracts, I very much appreciate that Casaitalia will continue to assist until completion next year. Filippo Zeni (and his excellent English and good humour!) has been invaluable to my wife and I, from sourcing and visiting premium, off-plan properties, to intermediating between seller and buyer, or opening a local bank account. Buying a property abroad is a major lifestyle decision, and it was our very good fortune to find such as excellent agency to help get that decision right.

Casaitalia had an impressive range of properties available for sale and we received first class service and support from them throughout the process. Our agent Filippo Cori took the time to understand what we were looking for and provided us with honest opinions about the properties we had under consideration. As a result, our viewing visits were productive and we were able to find the right property in a relatively short period of time. Casaitalia also provided invaluable assistance on a number of matters that require attention when buying a property in Italy; appointing a notary and translator, obtaining a codice fiscale, opening a local bank account, as well as the important transfer of utilities and other local services which can be a very challenging and time consuming exercise. We were most impressed by their willingness to help us with some of these issues long after the sale was completed.

We are extremely thankful to the team of CasaItalia International for their professionalism. It took us less than a year from the moment that the idea of buying a holiday house in Italy came to us till the day that we signed the final deed. For us it was an exciting, delightful and extremely positive experience, starting from the well-prepared trip around the properties available, to the final deed and even dealing with utility suppliers, engineers, etc. All this would not be possible without our agent, Filippo, and his colleagues. Although the formalities around the deal in Italy reminded us of what we would come across in our home country, only reliance on the agency allowed us to feel safe throughout the process and after it was completed. The agency provides all possible support with any questions we had around the deal or even broader, as foreigners coming to Italy. And does it in a very clear, swift and positive way.

I discovered Casaitalia International through my personal research.
I was particularly impressed by the excellent taste of the aesthetic representation, the detailed research, the consistent and harmonious description of the real estate offers, the deep knowledge of the target market segment, the vision of the product in an international logic.
All this had made Casaitalia a real estate agency with a strong personality, absolutely unique and original.
The identification of a product type to sell based on absolute quality and a target market based on the demanding and international buyer, and the creation of a network of agents prepared with connections in the main markets of the world, remains one of the underlying forces of Casaitalia which contributes to the success.
I could then appreciate the professionalism of Adolfo Giovannelli and his son Luca, for making all of this possible.
In fact it wasn't easy to sell my property in Todi as it was very demanding both for its size and for the significant price.
A large rural property, integrated dependence and technical rooms, of an old workmanship but all equipped with the latest technology, with a splendid view of the village and the Valley, and with a considerable agricultural land.
Thanks to the experience of Casaitalia I managed to sell it in a matter of months and with economic satisfaction.
Thanks Adolfo and Luca, I will always be your fan and supporter
Until next time

We found Casaitalia had an extraordinary wide range of properties available for sale but the quality that stood out was their readiness to provide a much fuller service for foreigners buying in Italy. They helped with many problems and hurdles, such as dealing with opening bank accounts, obtaining codice fiscale, advising on good building contractors, and managing the sale process very effectively. These latter aspects actually are the most important to an overseas purchaser than simply the standard service of an estate agent. Their help was much appreciated.

Hello Luca,
we finally arrived at the moment that both were hoping when we first met.
We are pleased to have worked with you for your seriousness, competence and kindness. We had at that time a great impression about you, as well as later about your father and your collaborators. We didn't know, at that time, how was going to end our attempted sale, but we have achieved our goal.
Thank you.
A. Monteferri and G. Gastone

Dear Mr Giovannelli,
We thank you for the way that has led us by the hand in such an important step of our lives.
It was an example of how you can work with passion and your email is proof of your sensitivity.
We embrace you all affectionately along with your son and your excellent collaborators.
