“Desde que compramos la casa en Salemi, nuestras vidas han recobrado sentido, es una oportunidad única que no podíamos perder. Todo ha sido un encanto, desde el primer día donde enviamos un correo preguntando por información hasta el día que firmamos el contrato. Gracias al Comune de Salemi y en especial a Fabrizio por habernos ayudado y agilizado todo para que nuestro sueño se hiciera realidad.”

To think that Salemi was not on my original itinerary is frightening, the thought of what I would
have missed out on!
My interact in purchasing a home in Italy is a rather long story, so I will spare you that. I
enthusiastically share with you how and why I fell in love with Salemi.
My daughter and son traveled with me to Sicily September of 2022. I had four cities I wanted to
visit and had arranged to see home in each one. My children were able to give me feedback on
every town and home. We had fantastic discussions over wine and food every evening as we
narrowed down the choices. I had a list of priorities, what I was looking for in a city. I wanted to
be no more than one hour from a major airport, within hours drive to a beach, music the arts
and welcoming community. Salemi was our third city to visit. We were greeted by Fabrizio at
the corner bar/coffee shop. We almost immediately felt connected to this city. I do not
remember how many homes we were shown that day, I do remember that Fabrizio had taken
all my interests and my budget into consideration. The three of us knew this was the city.
Salemi provided me with everything on my list.
I returned to Salemi December 2022 to finalize my search. Because of Fabrizio’s passion for his
community, he has all the details and connections in place. When I made my offer and
preliminary agreement, He made the process easy and stress free. All that is left is for my family
and I to enjoy my home in Salemi. I cannot wait!
My process of buying a property in Salemi took around 6 months.
My first trip to Sicily I spent one week to explore the island and visit different towns and there surroundings. I fell in love with two towns and it was hard to make the final decision but Salemi made all my requirements. Good location to the highway, short drive to international airport, within 1 hour from a big city and only 30 minutes drive to the beach.
I had very nice interdiction to the town from Fabrizio Internicola . He showed me the town, the castle, the museum and of course the cafes in town.
My second trip I spent longer time in Salemi. I went 2 times house hunting and found my house. In the beginning I had a good idea what kinda property I was looking for so it made the search easier.
I’m very great full for the support and the help both before and during the proses. Fabrizio helped me trough all the paperwork and provided me a lawyer for immigration purposes. Even now in my proses of renovation he is here for me. I don’t think I could have done this all alone without his help.
I’m looking forward to live and work in Salemi. I’ve already have friends here and my neighbors are very friendly and welcoming.
Salemi es una ciudad llena de oportunidades, es como un diamante en bruto, yo llegue con una mochila llena de ideas y las estoy realizando poco a poco, hasta ahora va una cerveceria y un smoke house.

"We have been so fortunate in getting connected with Fabrizio Internicola during our search for a new home in Salemi.
We were impressed with Fabrizio’s dedication to each step of the process and his genuine interest in assuring we were satisfied with our final decision on our new place. The best part is that we now have a new friend - a friendship that will continue to grow! Looking forward to spend our first summer together with our kids in Salemi!"
