Meet the director
Meeting with Michele BRACALE, Director of BARNES Porto Cervo.
Could you please introduce yourself and tell us how your office has been created?
Domenico Bracale and myself, Michele Bracale, are the two managers of BARNES Porto Cervo, and we were born and raised in the tourism sector, thanks to the hotel and restaurants that our family has owned in Sardinia for more than 30 years. We subsequently entered the real estate world and have dealt with sales and rentals in the luxury sector, in Italy and mainly in Sardinia, gaining great experience and achieving great success. We then made our entrance into the world of BARNES, which we have been and still are excited about. Our goal is to apply our professionalism, our knowledge and skills and our experience for a good and intelligent development of BARNES in Sardinia and Costa Smeralda.
How is your office structured and what areas do you cover today?
Our office is structured as follows: Domenico and myself, Michele, are the managers and we take care of the main sales and rentals. Our staff is made up of two marketing managers, two brokers and a network of professionals, such as geomats, architects, engineers, lawyers and accountants, who collaborate in the sales process.
We cover the entire island of Sardinia and especially the area of the famous Costa Smeralda.
What types of services do you offer?
Our office focuses on sales and rentals. We follow the sales process from start to finish, handling the request and its processing, the organization of visits and showings, the negotiation and mediation: professional and complete assistance both during the sales process and later, with the taking over of the property management or the formulation of a rental plan, in the case of an investment property.
Regarding rentals, we can count on a further solid and great network of professionals such as chefs with important curriculums, butlers, housekeepers, maintenance workers, gardeners, etc … and we offer all types of high-level services such as luxury car rental and yachts, concierge, wellness treatments, finding sports equipment, unique experiences, organizing events, in order to ensure a perfect holiday in one of the most beautiful destinations in the world.
