Meet the director

Meeting with Sebastien Ristori, Director of BARNES Corsica.

Could you please introduce yourself briefly? How was your office created?

Hello, I am Sébastien RISTORI, BARNES Corse’s agencies director, a marketing services company for real estate transactions and rentals, and a finance teacher at Corsica’s university. BARNES Corse was created in 2006 under the name of “Cala Rossa immobilier”, the result of the association of childhood friends, Jacques Magliolo and François Colonna-Cesari. Their wish was to put their knowledge of the region at the service of their clients and their real estate projects. Seven years later, they joined the prestigious BARNES network, an opportunity to open up to the world while remaining faithful to the values they share: ethics, work, trust, as well as the attention paid to clients and partners.

How is your office structured and what areas do you cover today?

Currently, there are five offices in Corsica, based in the areas of Cala Rossa, Porto-Vecchio, Bonifacio/Cavallo, Ajaccio and Balagne recently. The Corsica BARNES team is composed of 25 collaborators specialized in the island’s real estate market. There are transaction, communication, administrative and accounting, seasonal rentals, concierge, and maintenance teams, who work throughout the year to develop the company.

What types of services do you offer?

After several years of experience combining local expertise, ethics, discretion, and the power of the BARNES International network, our company offers its clients two professions. First, the marketing of the heritage by digitalization, the real estate advice, and the marketing of a property that is entrusted to us. We also offer the marketing of a tourist destination, Corsica, to create customized vacations thanks to a network of exclusive and quality partners, for a clientele that wishes to spend its trips on our island.

For a foreigner investor, why would you recommend Corsica and what products or location would you suggest?

The general trend is to look for a property that respects the environment in a region of peace and security. Corsica has all these advantages! The fourth most populated island in the Mediterranean and the second most attractive region in France, it attracts newcomers every year. The preferred sectors for exceptional properties are concentrated in the south of Ajaccio and the “grand Porto-Vecchio” area, where the most sublime properties with sea views are highly prized. Our BARNES Corsica team selects exceptional properties for their architecture, their integration into the landscape, and the quality of their layout.
