Casa Tuscany is driven by love and desire – the love of beautiful Italian property, and the desire to make our clients happy.
One of the most important words in our vocabulary is ‘no’. Saying no to properties which don’t meet the standards we are looking for, or offer good value.
We are always happy to have a chat to find out exactly what you are looking for. Feel free to call us for a chat on the phone or arrange to come in to the office if you want to discuss your requirements in more detail. We love finding out what makes you tick and finding the perfect match for you.
Casa Tuscany was founded by Karen Roos in 2002. Karen’s life-long love of Italy started when she spent many happy holidays there as a child, staying often with Italian family friends, enjoying the sun, food, friendship, language and lifestyle. Her love of the country and its language led her to study Italian and Business (and French, but that’s a bit rusty now..) at university, then subsequently to buy, restore and develop properties in Italy. She set up Casa Tuscany in early 2002, with the aim of helping others fulfil the same dream, and it has grown steadily over the years. Karen is fluent in Italian and has in the past worked as a translator.
Casa Tuscany today specialises in the sale of property in Tuscany and other parts of Italy – mainly Umbria and Liguria – and aims to bring you the best and widest possible selection of properties on the market.
Relationships are key, and all our agents in Italy are qualified, fully licensed, experienced and trusted.
We have sold properties to clients of many different nationalities and budgets, from world-famous celebrities and international businesses, to those wanting a pied-a-terre, retirement home or rental investment.
Over the years we have learnt how to source the best properties, how not to waste anyone’s time, who (and who not) to work with, and a wealth of knowledge about the best locations to buy in, obtaining permissions, building, restoring, problem solving, buying at auction, renting for profit, decorating, the best people for the job when you’re renovating, renting, or managing your property, and most of all how to just get things sorted so you can ENJOY your property.
We have featured in the Financial Times, Daily Mail, Italy Magazine, Italia magazine, Sunday Business Post (Ireland), Living for Retirement magazine, Manchester Evening News, to name but a few. Karen has also written articles for ‘Italy’ magazine. We have also featured in television programmes ‘A Place in the Sun’, ‘Grand Designs’, ‘Fantasy Homes by the Sea’, ‘Escape to the Continent’ ‘I Want that House’, ‘House Hunters in the Sun’ among others.
