Nick Ferrand

Nick Ferrand: founded the highly successful real estate agency Domus Nova in London in 1998. During the successful years of his tenure, he helped to contribute to a change in the perception of real estate agencies in the UK. The introduction of a modern approach to property details, advertising, objectives and a unique modus operandi ensured that Domus Nova became a centre of excellence in an unregulated industry.


2003 Nick left the United Kingdom to explore his passion for Italy. Three years later, with a wealth of experience, he founded Abode, a unique real estate agency specializing in luxury Italian real estate. It relies on the skills and attention to detail that made his British company so successful.

Paul Cleary

Paul Cleary: moved to Italy in 1999, living in Cortona, and has worked in the real estate business ever since. Initially involved in the project management of ruined farmhouses, this gave him a wealth of invaluable experience in dealing with both the Italian system and the exacting standards of his international clientele. Since 2004 he has been devoted to the sale of real estate in Italy, registering as a real estate agent in the Province of Arezzo in 2006. Joining forces with Nick Ferrand in 2007, he deals primarily with the legal aspects of our property transactions, liaising closely with the notaries, lawyers, surveyors and banks involved in each sale.
