"I want you to know that you are the most genuine, kind, and best real estate representative we’ve met and a true advocate for Arezzo, Foiano and Cortona! We truly enjoyed meeting and working with you. Thank you for showing us the garden apartment as well. I do think you really understood what we were searching for.
If we ever have the opportunity to recommend you to our friends we would absolutely do it. We wish you well, and thank you so much for your time.

"When Ron asked me to write a paragraph or two about our experience with Nicola, I reflected on our arrival in Cortona with our family and friends in May 2022. Our first official walkthrough the city was led by Laura Gremoli who shared her knowledge and passion about the history and beauty of this walled city. This was the beginning of our love affair with Cortona. As we were leaving two weeks later, Laura suggested that we consider buying an apartment here.
These words lingered in my husband’s mind as he made numerous comments about a return trip to Cortona. He soon contacted Laura, and she recommended Nicola Burazzi who she considered a most experienced and reliable realtor. Ron contacted Nicola and made plans for us to explore properties in Cortona in late October. But first, we met on zoom. Before describing available properties, Nicola asked why we wanted to buy a home in Cortona, Italy. His interest in our dreams caught our attention immediately! After Ron shared his desire to become a part of the community, Nicola briefly described the benefits of living within the walls of the city or the surrounding countryside. When the call ended, we were confident that Cortona was the right place for us. Throughout the process of exploring and eventually purchasing our home, he remained our advocate while representing the wishes of the owners.
Prior to our visit, we reviewed properties online and developed a plan to explore those of greatest interest. Once in Cortona, we realized how his attentive listening had influenced the properties we visited. He was forthright in identifying when properties were too highly priced and accommodated multiple schedule changes as we narrowed our search. We felt he had our best interest at heart. His passion for this community and his role in its daily life were obvious. It was impossible to walk down the street without someone greeting him and us warmly. It made us want to be a part of the Cortona community.
Nicola continued to represent us well during the negotiations to purchase our home. He simplified the complex process of the financial transactions essential to purchasing a home in Italy. We depended on him to assist us in contacting the right people and in following all rules and regulations. Our relationship did not end with the signing of the contract. He has been a constant resource as we transfer essential utilities and services. Nicola is a man if integrity who is intent on bringing good people to the community he loves and staying connected to them once they arrive" Ron and Ellen C. - Usa - February 2023
