How we work
There are lots of “middlemen” selling property in Slovenia, however, We were the first English run licensed agency in Slovenia, we are therefore regulated and have to run our business by a strict set of rules, giving you the confidence and trust you need when making such an investment.
We are much more than a real estate agency as we have been in the position of buying numerous times ourselves in Slovenia and know what to expect and what you as investors need not just to select their property but also to look after it when you are not there.
We cover the central and Western part of Slovenia, the areas that border Italy as well the charming capital city of Ljubljana and Slovenia's "second" city Maribor and from Piran on the coast to Kranska Gora in the North. We are often asked to represent properties all over Slovenia, so you will see properties on our site from all over this beautiful country!
We will always try and match your lifestyle with the right location, If you’re a skier we’ll help you find what you’re looking for in the right region, or if you just want a retreat in the hills or by a river we’ll help you find that too. Having been in the same position as you it is so important to get the location and type of property right, if you are interested in renting, it is important that the area attracts tourists and therefore you can maximise the rental yield from your property.
What places us differently from other agents here is we don't just sell our own properties, we work as a seek and find agent too, meaning tell us what you want and with our network of agents we will be able to find you what you're looking for, there is no extra fee for this service, lets face it we want to sell you a house, so its best to find you something you want or you may decide to go to Bulgaria - heaven forbid!
Once you’ve bought your house or apartment we’ll help you with all that needs to be done to maintain it, such as assisting with renovation, rentals or just simply putting the bills in your name.
So, come and see us and the beautiful areas we cover, whether you choose a different location or not you owe it to yourself to see this side of Slovenia!
