In 2010 we (man, wife, 2 children and 2 dogs) had a very serious idea to move to Italy, permanently. With the promised work possibilities in mind we started our search for a nice place in the region ‘Abruzzo'. Due to all kinds of changes, we had to change plans from time to time. Changes in terms of budget, type of house, area within Abruzzo and last but not least we had to leave the idea to move permanently. At the end of 2016, we bought our second home near Castilenti, Abruzzo. A very nice situated house, exactly what we wanted regarding the moment in life.
Along the way, from 2010 until now, Tracey / Abruzzo Reality helped us with so much patience and empathy. We regularly visited Abruzzo and went to places and houses which on paper would fit our needs. Within a few minutes on site, Tracey could see and ‘feel’ if it would be a fit or not, and if not, we moved further in a very relaxed but professional way. A no-fit happened a lot and never was problem. Next time better, she kept on searching and helped us with tips and advice in between.
The ease of talking in English to a real estate broker who is multi lingual and is perfectly capable of translating it back and forward without lost of words or context is a very big plus. The network of Tracey is wide and diverse, good and reliable geometras, notarys and builders are part of her network and were very helpful for us, as new Italian home owners to quickly make the region ‘our own’.
We recommend Abruzzo Reality / Tracey highly when you want to find your home and way in, and around, Abruzzo.
