Anne Nathan, founder of The Italian Property Company, is director of Chesterton Liguria. Having previously worked in property finance, Nathan has been based in Italy for over 22 years, and has been working in Italian Real Estate for ten years before establishing The Italian Property Company.

Her expertise lies in finding property for predominately English speakers along the Italian Riviera. Covering all aspects involved in buying a house in Italy, Nathan has an expert knowledge of the Ligurian property market and a network of English-speaking lawyers, notaries, bankers and accountants to help simplify the buying process for international purchasers.

The Italian Riviera has always been a popular destination among second home owners, known for its beautiful coastline, pretty towns and villages and traditional Italian food.  The area has been consistently popular with international buyers as it is offers everything that the French Riviera has to offer yet property prices are as much as 60% lower.

Andrew Hawkins, Head of International, comments: “We are delighted that Anne Nathan has chosen to become part of the Chesterton international network. With a very strong business in Tuscany & Umbria and recent expansion in Nice, Chesterton Liguria completes an important part of the jigsaw in offering the best the Mediterranean property market has to offer. As a result of the economic crisis buyers are increasingly focused on getting greater value for their money and the Italian Riviera has benefitted from growing demand for holiday homes in the area. The region offers a variety of properties in the romantic San Remo to Portofino.

“Anne Nathan’s wealth of experience both in Liguria and Italy means that our clients will receive a seamless buying process and have access to a network of property experts before and after they purchase their property.”

The Italian property market has always been a popular destination among UK and European buyers so we are delighted to become a part of a company which has such a presence in London and across the UK and Europe and the Middle East.”

Robert Bartlett, CEO of Chesterton Global says: “Italy is a key European property market and our new office in Bordighera allows us to provide expertise in an area which is increasing in popularity.”
