Steve and Nikki were originally interested in purchasing a property in Spain, to be used as a holiday home and potentially a full-time residence, as they worked towards retirement.
Nikki however has never been to Spain and due to a number of factors it was decided they would complete research on Italy instead of Spain.
They decided, after research, that the region of Calabria offered the best in terms and lifestyle of the Mediterranean climate, cost of living and cost of property.
Whilst on the Rightmove overseas website, they discovered Rolfe east and made contact with Chris Baker, who was extremely helpful, over a number of months, answering questions/queries.
A potential property became available on the market and Chris Baker, after explaining about viewing trips, made all the arrangements including flights and accommodation for a trip in April 2015, even meeting them at the airport and arranging transport to their accommodation.
Throughout the whole process Steve and Nikki found Chris Baker extremely helpful and honest, and would recommend both him and associates at Rolfe east to anyone and everyone looking to buy property in Italy.
Numerous properties were visited during their stay, and an offer was accepted on a property, Steve and Nikki are currently in the process of finalising the purchase.
Since returning back to the UK Chris Baker has kept in touch with Steve and Nikki, updating them on the current progress of the sale.
Steve says "We are indebted to both Chris Baker and Rolfe east, for helping us find our dream property in Italy, Chris is the perfect ambassador for Rolfe east, professional, honest and approachable, we can only give him 10 out of 10"
