We are specialised in assisting foreigners in buying properties in the countryside or small hill-top villages of Central Italy, mainly in Umbria, but also in Tuscany, Lazio and the Marche.
My name is Dorrie Seijffert and I am the owner of the agency. I am Dutch and have been living in Italy since 1981. I have been a free-lance conference interpreter for over 20 years and worked mainly for the European Union in Brussels, but also in the Netherlands and Italy. I speak fluent Dutch, Italian, English, French and good German and Spanish. Now that I have an Italian family I want to travel less and founded La Porta Verde, (holidays and properties in Umbria) with Graham and Lin Lane. But I noticed very soon that not being qualified we found ourselves working with local agents who didn’t do their job properly, causing us and our clients many problems.
