Successful International Cooperation

Success stories from 2009

Though the current period can generally be described as a recession that has touched most of us in some way or another, we are happy to report that it’s not all doom and gloom. For EREN and its members 2009 contained some notable highlights that marked a distinct improvement over 2008 and the early beginnings of a recovery…

This is a perfect example of the value that an International Network has for our clients as well as for our EREN members.

Peter Marschall, owner and director of Marschall Immobilien, the local EREN member in Vienna, tells us: “A diplomatic family with an international background moving from New York was looking for a penthouse in Vienna. After searching on international websites they found a stylish apartment that they liked. The search led this couple to Rimontgó, EREN’s member in Valencia and the Costa Blanca region of Spain. Mrs. Alicia Martínez González of Rimontgó gave the clients a very professional first service and follow-up, before handing them over to Marschall Immobilien. Finally, they concluded the €1.7 million purchase of a luxury apartment in the city centre of Vienna. It shows how international marketing and cooperation between reputable agents can work to the benefit of the seller, the agents and above all the buyers, who found their property quickly thanks to a fluent process and are now settled in their lovely city pad enjoying beautiful views of the Vienna skyline” Congratulations!

Other national and cross-border examples

In Italy, Giorgio Viganò,Srl, from Milan cooperated with Cofim Immobiliare, the EREN member  covering the Veneto region, in the referral, property search and subsequent sale of an important historic villa near Verona.

A similar cooperation lead to the sale of a stunning modern lakeside villa with magnificent views over Lake Garda in northern Italy. The value of the two sales combined was close to $5 million.

In Portugal, local agents IRG registered two important sales in close liaison with Marschall Immobilien and Inmobiliaria Rimontgó. Acting on behalf of an Austrian client, Marschall worked together with IRG to find a beautifully restored and modernised 4-bedroom apartment in Lisbon’s historic and vibrant Chiado district.

From its base in Valencia, Spain, Rimontgó meanwhile entered in contact with their Portuguese partners in the search for a truly special property that was found in one of the most desirable locations in the Algarve.

Such examples show the value of close international cooperation among partners who know and trust one another, exchanging information and working together to find clients the finest quality homes in a manner that is fluent, transparent, efficient and quick. Rimontgó and Wetag of Locarno, Switzerland, are currently working on two more such instructions for luxury Swiss property on behalf of Russian and Greek clients, each looking to expand their international property portfolios.

As they say, l’union fait la force.
