Who Are We
Established in early 2002, we are an Anglo-Italian agency specialising in the sale of property in Tuscany and other parts of Italy, and have an office in England and an office in Italy.
Office in Cambridge, England:
Run by Karen Roos, BA in Modern Languages and Business (Italian and French), a fluent Italian speaker, with experience of living in, and restoring and developing properties in Italy. Karen used to be on the FOPDAC (Federation of Overseas Property Developers, Agents and Consultants) committee before its merger with the NAEA (National Association of Estate Agents). Karen has a life-long love of Italy and property and aims to bring you the best possible selection of properties available, whatever your budget. As well as running the agency, Karen works as a consultant and project manager for developers and is involved in several development projects.
Office in Bagni di Lucca, Lucca, Italy:
Run by Luciana Gargiulo, a fully qualified and practising estate agent since 1995, licensed by the Chamber of Commerce in Italy and registered with FIAIP - the Federation of Professional Italian Estate Agents. Luciana's husband is a well-known architect and the Italian estate agency office is shared by a team of architects, geometras and technicians so we are always able to sort out any technical issues, surveys and assist in developing and construction.
We work with colleagues and associates agents throughout Tuscany and beyond to bring you a varied selection of properties, as well as a trusted alliance consisting of
Property Management team

to cover all aspects of property purchase, restoration/building and finance.
If you dream of owning your own place in Tuscany, we can help you fulfil that dream, guiding you expertly through every stage. Please see our constantly updated selection of properties for sale and request further information on any that interest you. Joining our email list will inform you regularly of all new properties for sale and enable us to see what you are looking for and try to match you with suitable properties.
We are increasingly involved in large commercial projects and the acquisition of building land and can source many excellent commercial propositions as soon as they come onto the market, through our wide network of contacts in Italy. We are able to assist throughout the project with both the construction and resale.
We have appeared on 'I Want that House' (UK TV) twice, on 'House Hunters in the Sun' (Irish tv) and been quoted in the Financial Times, Daily Mail, Sunday Business Post (Ireland), Living for Retirement magazine, Manchester Evening News, to name but a few. Karen has also written articles for 'Italy' magazine. We have also had properties featured in 'A Place in the Sun', 'Grand Designs - trade secrets' among others.
