Thank you so much for everything you did to help us buy our dream home in our favorite vacation spot.....Italy!
We were first attracted by your informative website, with so many wonderful homes throughout Italy, and lots of advise regarding the steps we needed to take before we could purchase a home in Italy. But when we realized you lived less than an hour away in Santa Cruz, we were very happy to be able to meet you and converse in person. You explained how to apply for the important Codice Fiscale, how to open an Italian bank account, and tips on prices, square footage and what to expect in the Italian regions we were interested in. When we finally decided to take our 3 week house hunting adventure, you asked for our itinerary so you could set us up with the homes you knew we'd love. And you also selected the best local realtors to show us those homes. And you continued to communicate with each realtor throughout our trip. When we got back to the US and finally decided which house would be our dream home, you did a great job of negotiating the best price for us. And since we didn't speak Italian, you were very helpful as our translator whenever we needed you. Looking back on the entire home buying process, it all seemed to happen so quickly. We decided on the unfinished new-build house in July, came back to Italy to purchase the house in September, the seller/contractor completed our home to our specifications by December, and we were back for the closing and key exchange in January!
Piero, without you, we would not have gained the confidence necessary to move forward and buy a home in another country. But thanks to you, we now own our beautiful dream home, and we already have friends and family planning to visit us there, as soon as April. Wow! What a thrill. Would I recommend it to others? Only if they get the expert knowledge and experience of Piero Lorenzo! Now that we have become friends, we look forward to you and your family visiting us in our new Italian vacation home in Passignano sul Trasimeno.
Sincerely, Scott & Doris".

"I want to thank Piero for all of his help. My partner and I have been trying to retire to Italy. We had been going back and forth over the internet trying to procure an apartment with a year lease as required by the Italian Consulate. After months of utter frustration, a mutual friend of our recommended Piero to us. He jumped right in to our rescue. He understood the situation completely, was very familiar both with what we were trying to do and how everything worked in the rental market over there. He was able to successfully bridge all the barriers of distance, language, and culture. He was prompt in all of his correspondence with us and wasted no time in making contact, working with the agent in Sicily in an attempt to negotiate the lease and staying in touch with us through the whole process. He had excellent ideas and suggestions to overcome the obstacles presented to us and was a pleasure to work with. Both of us cannot recommend Piero more highly. We will be back. Thank you so much, Piero you were wonderful."
"I was looking for someone to help my grandpa sell his home in Italy and was referred to Piero Lorenzo. My grandpa lives in Ohio, so you can imagine the difficulties that go along with selling a home that's overseas. Piero has been wonderful with us through the whole process. He even made a special trip to my grandfather's home in Italy to take pictures to post on the website. Piero knew exatly what photos to take to advertise the beauty of the home online. Piero was able to communicate with the buyers and my grandpa and get all of the necessary documents in place in time for the closing. He was also able to walk my grandpa through the process, as it is different than selling a home in the U.S. I am so very grateful for Piero. We would never been able to do any of this without him. He is not just a great real estate agent, but an amazing person, as well."
"Piero è un eccellente professionista sempre disponibile e per tutta la durata della transazione ti segue a 360 gradi. Capisce perfettamente le esigenze del cliente e trova soluzioni a tutto ciò di cui io hai bisogno!!!!

"I have known Mr. Piero Lorenzo since at last ten years having used his services to rent several apartments of my property in Florence, Italy.
Piero Lorenzo is very professional and efficient in his work and trustworthy in his information about the reliability of his clients. His engagement and performance allowed my wife and me to obtain always good results.
We deeply regret his decision to move to the United States and I recommend him without hesitation".
