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 within a real estate agency of undisputable excellence, having the capacity to offer personalized services. The dedicated search undertaken by Via dei Colli, with the collaboration of the Great Estate group, is the means to have this unique and personalized advice.


What is the dedicated search?

The dedicated search is the exclusive appointment that the buying customer assigns to Via dei Colli to search for a property to purchase. It is a service with high added value, which involves a mutual investment in trust to reach the common goal: finding the Dream Italian Home for the client. Previous experience shows us that about 80% of customers who sign up for a dedicated search actually buy a property with us.

With a dedicated search assignment, our agent will be the only point of contact for the client; our agent will actively take care of finding the right property, primarily within the vast real estate portfolio of the Great Estate group, then in the entire market, selecting properties of potential interest advertised by individuals or other agents. The buying customer, regardless of who the seller is and who is the seller’s agent, will always be counting on our renowned accuracy and punctuality.

Why dedicated search?

Undertaking a Dedicated Search assignment allows significant advantages to the customer:

Multiservice approach

Legal, technical and fiscal advice provided on request by selected professionals, with first free consultation.


Removal of language barriers, as our consultants interact with customers in their desired language.

Search effectiveness

This service increases the probability that you will find your forever home. In fact, 80% of customers who sign up for a Dedicated Search assignment actually buy one of the properties offered.

Time saving

Great time savings are to be had, as we here at Via dei Colli bear the burden of the search; the customer is no longer forced to search for properties on portals for hours or to read dozens of emails from different agencies, because we do it all and we filter everything on the basis of the preferences and needs expressed by our client.

One dedicated professional

The customer will have a single professional with whom he can communicate his needs and preferences; the exchange of information will undoubtedly be more continuous and in-depth compared to a multi-agent approach, with a larger chance to tune in to the same wavelength, in a relationship of transparency and mutual trust.

Quality of services offered

The quality of services and products is strictly controlled by us, as exclusive agents of the buyer. We do not have as a goal to sell at all costs but to sell the property that best suits your needs.

How does the dedicated search work ?

Once the dedicated search mandate has been signed, the work is essentially carried out in three phases: the first is the research phase, the second is the visit / evaluation phase and the third is the actual purchase process.

Research phase

The research phase begins with listening and an in-depth understanding of the needs and tastes of the client, in all their aspects, from the location, to the budget, to the ideal dimensions, to the preferred style, etc …; we provide our in-depth knowledge of the market to guide the client in the choice of location or other parameters, in case he does not have a clear preference.

Having done this, we are going to select, typically within 14 days from the beginning of the assignment, the potentially interesting properties, looking within the portfolio of our group, of the agencies located in the areas of interest, within the real estate portals, magazines, the network of direct knowledge, with constant feedback from the customer. Gradually skimming the properties, we finally arrive at a definitive selection of at least 3 properties (we recommend a maximum of 10). We organize the various inspections and keep the agenda of the appointments.

Visit and evaluation phase

A first visit to all the selected properties is carried out with the customer.
After further reducing the properties to view to a select few, the customer normally conducts a second visit to the properties deemed most suitable, possibly assisted by a qualified technician for a first free evaluation of the necessary works or improvements that could be made to the property.
The dedicated professional provides all the elements and clarifications requested and also makes a professional estimate of the property, to help the customer having an objective feedback on the fair market values.

Purchase phase

We prepare a purchase offer after having carried out checks on the title origin and on any mortgages, easements and burdens, as well as on building permits.

We provide any legal, technical, tax, financial assistance, which the client should request, carried out by qualified professionals, at transparent and favourable rates- OUR PARTNERS »

The preliminary contract can be prepared by us or be alternatively prepared, at affordable rates, by notaries with whom we have close partnerships. PARTNER NOTARIES »

The customer is followed step by step until the notarial deed; even after the purchase, we are always available to provide our advice and to respond to every need, through the network of knowledge and professional collaboration that we have established.

The dedicated search service has no extra costs.

The undertaking of a Dedicated Search mandate and real estate brokerage is requested, with which the buyer undertakes not to involve other real estate agencies for the duration of the contract. The commission is due only in the event of an effective conclusion of the deal or early revocation of the assignment; there are no extra costs for the dedicated search service.
