Testimonials

We receive many thank you letters and recommendations. Here are just a few of them - with the writers' consent, of course!

“If you are thinking about buying a home in Italy for whatever reason, we recommend two things:

 

Take a close look at Calabria - Calabria is everything you expect from Italy: history, culture, beautiful panoramic scenery, climate and most importantly, warm and inviting people.
 
Contact Tony at Calabria Property Consultants to help you - Tony was amazing from the minute we met him. Not only did he greet us with a warm welcome but Tony also made it a point to listen to us, take the time to show us around the area and introduce us to others that he had worked for and bought from him, as well as his friends. In the end, not only did Tony help us find our dream home in this magical land, but he also tended to every detail of the home buying process in Italy. Tony made it enjoyable and simple (as simple as can be expected when buying overseas) and has truly become not only a trusted advisor but a dear friend as well.

Mille Grazie Tony!”

"When we decided to buy an apartment in the south of Italy it was very important for us to be sure that we have all the information on the documents, process, specificity of buying in Italy and that we could rely on the agent we work with. Going through reviews of other buyers we understood that the reliability and professionalism of the realtor is crucial for success.

I contacted several agencies but the level of informational support and client service that Tony provided was never met by any other realtor!

This support really made us feel very comfortable about the deal. We were clear at every stage of what was going on and always got sufficient information about every single detail. We also got a great deal with the apartment we bought and are very happy that we chose Tony and Calabria Property Consultants.

We would definitely recommend Tony in case you plan to buy property in Scalea and around."

"Когда мы решили приобрести квартиру в Скалее, мы очень переживали по поводу выбора агентства. Некоторые агентства не откликались на запросы, так как у них не было сотрудников владеющих английским/русским. Другие не предоставляли полной информации или не проявляли достаточной заинтересованности. Плюс мы очень боялись нарваться на недобросовестное агентство.

И Тони оказался для нас просто находкой! Еще до осмотра у нас уже был значительный объем информации как по квартире так и по этапам сделки. Когда мы приехали на "смотрины" разрыв в отношении стал еще более заметен по сравнению с другими агентами.

Для нас было важно владеть полной информацией по квартире, документации и специфике заключения сделки. И также была важна максимальная прозрачность процесса на всех стадиях. И с Тоня мы чувствовали полную уверенность.

Мы очень довольны как процессом покупки, так и результатом и рады рекомендовать Тони."

"Having visited Scalea on 3 previous occasions, we have now moved here on a permanent basis. We’ve found the local people to be very welcoming. The climate for much of the time is warm and sunny; and even though Scalea is a relatively small town, it has all the major facilities we need: supermarkets and shops, a mainline train station with links to Naples and Rome, plenty of buses that run along the coast and service local towns, and several excellent cafes and restaurants. We’ve also found Scalea to be quite a cheap place to live. The surrounding countryside is very beautiful, offering dramatic views of mountain ranges and the sea. There’s also a national park on our doorstep, and a great beach as well. Tony (of Calabria Property Consultants) guided us through the business of buying our property, in a professional and no-nonsense manner, and he’s been an invaluable source of help throughout the process. As our Italian is still a bit basic, Tony is also providing us with an efficient bill-paying service while we find our feet.

Scalea, and the surrounding area, is still relatively undiscovered by non-Italians, and whether you’re thinking of just acquiring a holiday home or are looking for somewhere to put down new roots, we can’t recommend Scalea enough."

Tony and Karen Adam - Scalea

"Calabria Property Consultants have been fantastic in helping me to find an apartment and in organising the processes leading up to me taking possesion of my property. Since my purchase, they have helped me arrange new furniture, organised maintenance work in my absence, and kept me informed of developments throughout my association with them. I have no hesitation in recommending Calabria Property Consultants if you are looking for a property in Scalea and its surrounding area."

Tony Smith - Hull and Scalea

"Firstly many grovelling appologies for not writing to you sooner to say a really big THANK YOU for all you and your team have done to find us our home in Italy. We are looking forward to moving out there in October and being a nuisance to you all as we seek help with some of the practicalities and the building works!"

Derek Baker - Torquay and Santa Domenica Talao

"We hope everyone is doing well and we want to thank you all again for the tremendous help and assistance you gave us over the last few months. Tony, for showing us around all the apartments, for the interpreting (sto provando imparare!) and all the help at the notary. David, for sorting out all the bank stuff on the day. Melanie, who answers emails almost before they're sent and Anna for all her help at the bank and tax office."

Kevin and Niamh - Ireland and Santa Domenica Talao

"The high level of service, patience and problem solving abilities you have shown have been second to none and we sincerely thank you. You not only found us the perfect property but project managed the decorating, the kitchen and furniture fitting, organised the electricians, plumbers, property management service, bill paying service and translation and the list goes on. We would just like to say that the service you offer is exemplary. Thank you for turning the dream of owning an Italian property of the perfect specification into a reality."

Richard and Helen Crossman - Dorset and Scalea

"We apologise for not writing and thanking you earlier but were taken away with other events when arriving back in the UK. Sitting down and reflecting on our situation made us realise without your efforts and dedication we would not have achieved our goals."

Stefan and Alicia Mann - Suffolk and Scalea

"Thank you all for your help with buying our apartment and organising other things for us, we will have many lovely holidays there"

Steve and Sue Smith - Essex and Scalea
