I grew up in Rome, Italy and my passions are motorcycles, traveling and just generally enjoying life. A graduate of the Cornell School of Engineering in computer science, I have a successful website about living in Italy -- for me that means living all things Italy -- food, wine, music, dance, festivals, and wonderful vacations -- just to name a few. Check out www.lifeinitaly.com. I love my website but now that it's running smoothly, I needed something more to do so I decided to seek life improvements for my clients through real estate. I have always been passionate about real estate and after I did a couple of successful transactions in Italy, I decided to do the same here in the US where I live.
In December 2011, I became a realtor. As I have guided clients through successful real estate transactions, I acquired my own taste for real estate investing. I have purchased three properties so far in Montgomery County and I am having a very good return on my investments. I think that now ( 2015 ) is an excellent time to buy real estate since values are going up again after the crash of 2007. There are many financial measurement rates of return, including cash flows from rentals and increases in market value. We can estimate those but the bottom line is that as long as you can bring in monthly from your real estate investments more your money could bring from alternative investments you are doing ok. I would be happy to guide clients through this same process. I can present an investment excel study that will help you evaluate your investment.
I know a house is more than an investment -- even houses that are investments are more than investments! -- they are a means to enjoying your life to its fullest.

"Paolo helped my family finding our new home. He was always available when we needed to go see a home or just for a quick phone consultation. He also gave us valuable information and suggestion about home remodeling and improving. In addition, he provided us with information that helped us rent our old home quickly. Thank to Paolo, the transition to our new home was very smooth. We highly recommend him as an agent. "
-Giordano Carlini, Client
"Paolo is an excellent realtor! He worked creatively to ensure that I received the most amount I could from the sale of my home, as well as was very generous with his time while I entertained buying a replacement property. He remains a friend and someone who I will definitely contact again when it comes time to buy another home. "
-Grace McGuire, Client
"From the first correspondence to the final steps in securing a home, Paolo was dedicated through each step to assure we were happy with everything. He always made sure to go out of his way to make sure all details were taken care of. He is very responsive and makes sure to accommodate all your needs. Thank-you Paolo for making our move to Silver Spring such a delight!"
-Alex Score, Client
" Paolo worked very closely with me to obtain a place for my kids and I in a very short period. Paolo removed the stress and ambiguity in locating a place to live and helped make the overall process an enjoyable one. He even drove me around in his environmentally friendly car (Nissan Leaf) to view the various properties. I highly recommend him as an agent."
