My Agent

It is obvious that the Italian Real Estate Market is not as transparent as the Anglo-Saxon market; It lacks a single database, gathering all the real estate offers available for sale, thereby forcing potential buyers to consult dozens of different media, often only in Italian. International investors sometimes feel discouraged, as they cannot find the property they are truly searching for. Many share the wish to interact with a single professional, working within a real estate agency of undisputable excellence, having the capacity to offer personalized advice and My Agent services.

How does My Agent service work?

Once the assignment My Agent has been undersigned, the work entails three phases:
-firstly, the search phase,
-secondly, the viewing/assessment phase
-lastly the buying process.
  • Dedicated search phase
    The entrusted Great Estate expert will listen and deeply comprehend the requirements and tastes of the client; (for instance the detection of the most appropriate location or area of interest). The same expert will be capable to advice the client who has not expressed a clear preference in this. Once the client’s needs, preferences and requirements have been recorded and understood, the agent carries out a property search in order to find potentially interesting properties, within the portfolio of Great Estate but also of the Real Estate agents located in the areas of interest, as well as through property websites, magazines and networking. The agent will select with the client a few properties, sending a detailed report for each property to the client, including photographs and relevant information. The agent will arrange all the viewings and keep the schedule for the clients.
  • Viewing phase and assessment
    A first viewing to all the selected properties is made with the client. After a further screening, the client normally makes a second viewing to the properties deemed more suitable. In this phase the expert could already make a professional valuation of the real estate and a first assessment of the works and improvements that could be made to the property.
  • Purchase phase
    Once the right property has been selected, the agent draws up an offer to purchase, in which the purchase terms and the price are agreed together with the client. Although Great Estate carries out a first analysis on each property of its portfolio beforehand, (inspecting both the actual state of the property and the compliance of the property to building codes and land registry, checks on the titles, mortgages, liens etc..), the client has the right to subject the offer to the positive outcome of a due diligence report. This latter includes all the necessary checks carried out by an independent and qualified technician (at care and expense of the buyer). The additional legal, technical or tax advisory required at this stage by the client can be performed by the capable professionals we have selected, at convenient and transparent tariffs. The client is followed step by step by the dedicated consultant till the final completion deed; even after, we are always just willing to help and to properly address the client’s needs through our network of professionals.

How much does it cost?

My Agent service is free of charge, being a mutual trust demonstration between the client and the agency: the former is advantaged in having only one professionals as referent, the latter will have the certainty to work in complete quiet so to select the best options for the client. Therefore, except for the normal agency’s fee, there isn’t any extra cost.
