My husband and I have known Maria Cristina since 2000, when we were looking for a house to buy near Urbino. Maria Cristina turned out to be our greatest ally on more than one occasion in what proved to be a long but exciting journey to buy and renovate our 500 year old farmhouse. She helped us find the house of our dreams, secured us a mortgage with a local bank, advised us as we went through the complicated purchase process, and then supported us in beginning our restoration. Over the years Cristina has helped us with so many aspects of Italian home ownership, from setting up and managing our bank account and all the utilities, organizing moving furniture from Singapore to Italy, setting up our home insurance, and finding us a cleaner and gardener! Now Maria Cristina is managing the property for us (we have since moved to Los Angeles), and has had to solve many different problems for us, such as the time we ran out of gas over the weekend, or when an electrical storm took down our power! But luckily she is always there for us, and we now delighted to know her as a close friend.
I would recommend Marche Country Property to anyone thinking of buying or renting a property in Le Marche, especially from overseas.

We first met Maria Cristina Marchetti in Urbino in 2003. We described to her the kind of property we were looking for in the Marche and she gave us candid and valuable advice which allowed us to refine our requirements. She was very patient, understood clearly the sort of property we were looking for and how our requirements could be met in the area. Her guidance and advice throughout the search together with her knowledge of Italian property law and procedures was invaluable and enabled the search, the negotiation and the purchase to proceed far more smoothly than we ever thought possible. Her command of English is very good, and she was able to act as our interpreter from negotiation to completion.
We have no hesitation in recommending Maria Cristina to potential purchasers.
