The Sotheby’s International Realty brand is also represented in Venice area by Venice Sotheby’s International Realty, which is owned and managed by Ann-Marie Doyle.
“Our expansion across Italy continues our commitment to providing access to the Sotheby’s International Realty network’s exclusive real estate services in key cities around the world,” said Philip White, president and chief executive officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC.
“This affiliation, which strengthens our presence in Europe, provides a strong footprint in one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the world .”
"Rome, the eternal city, has been attracting visitors for two millennia but it is still one of the most exhilarating and romantic destinations in the world” says Lodovico Pignatti Morano,.
“The Rome real estate market represents a strong opportunity in Italy in terms of sales and rentals for properties, and we are thrilled to represent the Sotheby’s International Realty brand in such an important location.”
According to Lodovico Pignatti Morano, Rome Sotheby's International Realty offers its international and local clientele a wide selection of luxury properties in Rome and the surrounding areas.
Located inside the renowned Palazzo Odescalchi, whose facade was originally designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini in 1665, the office is conveniently positioned and caters to individual client needs.
“Despite the economic crisis that hit the Italian real estate market over the last few years, property prices in many neighbourhoods did not fall, especially in the historic centre, where there are apartments and penthouses for sale with antique features including frescos and vaulted ceilings,” says Diletta Giorgolo Spinola, head of sales for Rome Sotheby’s International Realty.
“Apartments with views on the picturesque squares and renowned fountains are the most sought-after. In other residential areas such as the Parioli, prices fell and it is now possible to find exciting deals.”
The Sotheby’s International Realty network currently has over 16,400 sales associates located in approximately 730 offices in 56 countries and territories worldwide.
