I guide my clients along the path to their Tuscan dream-home. From the initial search to walk-throughs and paperwork to renovations and interior design.
I will help you make your dream of living in Italy come true. As an architect with a PhD in engineering I offer expats a one-stop-solution for finding and renovating a home here in Florence or Tuscany. A US citizen with italian roots, I have lived in Florence for over twenty years now, which enables me to help you navigate realtors, notaries, financing and paperwork easily. I use my extensive experience in architecture to plan renovations and overlook every building site. Your home gets a final touch when we create your individual interior design concept.
Finding a home
My services in detail
Find your perfect home
Together we can find just the right home for you in Florence and Tuscany. As a local, I can tell you about every part of town as well as our region to find the perfect spot for you. I help contact realtors, visit and revisit homes together or remotely. With an eye out for potential transformations and required permits, I will find a home that meets your requests and needs.
Assistance in the purchase process
Unlike the US, the European housing market is much slower and can be paved with a lot of bureaucracy. I assist and guide you through the paperwork, technical reports, surveys and other documentation needed for your purchase. I can connect you to trusted notaries and help you assess prices of comprehensive permits, fees, purchases and renovations.
Renovation and design
Whether big or small, contemporary or traditional, spacious or cozy – I can help you to create the home you envision. We will sit down together and I will draft your individual architectural solution that will be both feasible and within budget. Based on the designs, I hand-pick professionals and craftsmen and overlook the building site to ensure safety and quality.
My experience for interior design ranges from luxurious Tuscan villas to sustainable vintage flats in the city center. With an eye for details and styling for every aesthetic taste, I create spaces where you will immediately feel at home. Whether we go hunt for in-budget furniture or upholstery in one of our many local antique shops and markets or I design custom-made interior solutions for you such as staircase storages, indoor gyms or home spas, I look forward to making your dream home come to life.
