Cortona International is a trade name for Agenzia Immobiliare Cortonese which was founded in 1997 by Michele Burazzi for the local Italian property and rental market.
In 2005, his brother Nicola Burazzi joined forces with him, bringing marketing and computer skills to the agency which began attracting the first international clients.
This led to an association with HelpWorksItalia, a property management company set up by British born Alison Koetser. HWI provides an efficient and professional package for the international client who doesn’t necessarily speak Italian, who is unlikely to know the ‘ins and outs’ of the purchase process and above all, who will want to know that any property purchased will be tended to during their short or long absences.
More recently still, Roberto Ghezzi, whose own estate agency ICREA was set up in 2003 after 9 years of living and working in the US, joined Cortona International, bringing with him an array of skills, fluency in English, and vast experience.
Marialena Maggi, the newest member of the team, specializes in holiday rental management and collaborates with Alison in all property management endeavors. Marialena was born in Italy then lived in the U.S. for many years. Thanks to her bilingual and bicultural background, she is able to uniquely relate to the needs and wishes of CI’s clients, providing the type of service they are seeking.
