Exclusive agreement implies that You give your property just for our advertising, and we will offer it to all our partners at home and abroad.

Calls by serious or frivolous customers occur at any time, even when it does not suit You. With our agent you can easily arrange a mode of communication, and we will take the role of filtering frivolous clients. Those serious and their wishes and offers will be forwarded to You in time and way that suits You best.

All of the real estates for which the owner signed an exclusive contract of mediation will find a special place in our marketing actions on the occasion of important dates, at real estate conferences, in specialized magazines. When we have the opportunity to advertise real estate, it is always the one from portfolio of our partners who signed an exclusive Agreement on Mediation and recognized us as serious.
