Hello! I have posted a similar question in the other thread, "Living & Working in Croatia", but I feel that it also applies here, especially if some of you might be property owners in Croatia and have the experience of looking for an architect. Here is what I wrote:
I was wondering if you might have some suggestions for me when it comes to reaching new clients in Croatia.
I'm an interior designer with my small company mostly based in Italy.
Since I am able to speak Croatian and, let's be honest, who wouldn't like to work on a project in this beautiful country ,
I was wondering if it might be possible for me to find local, or international people to make interior design projects with.
So, I was mostly wondering if you have any idea about the investments in Croatia- where do foreigners buy houses?
What agencies do they use to help them with the process? Any "party" places, where new bars/restaurants might be opening?
So far, I've been contacting real estate agencies in Dalmatia, but no luck.
Not really my forte but Croatia is somewhat awash with designers, website builders, economists and others. They all face the same problem... everyone has a cousin, neighbour, party colleague, old school friend as their go-to provider. Bravo on your approach and creative ideas, l wish you all the best.
Hello newlifein..... sorry to have taken so long to reply.
Our company is RPC Estates d.o.o. (that's the Croatian version of "Ltd") which is as much about property management than anything else. We look after a bunch of homes owned by our clients. Some are holiday homes, some are being prepared for retirement use, some are rentals. We also operate as a licensed estate agency which helps to add to our our client list and, of course, earns us some sales commission. We operate under the name of ruralpropertycroatia.com - Our major connection with buyers, sellers and owners is via our web site at ruralpropertycroatia.com/
We are somewhat unusual because we only work with foreign buyers, we also charge our commission to the buyers. This enables us to pick and choose the best available properties (because it's a free service to sellers - which they like!) and, to be really honest, the buyers pay anyway. If sellers have to pay agents' commission, they merely add it to the asking price. We reckon it's best just to be honest about it.
Have a look round the site please and get in touch at any time. We're always happy to talk.
