Established in 2010 during the global economic crisis, Govoni Real Estate began with a clear goal – to redefine the real estate brokerage experience and become trusted advisors in a rapidly changing market. Originally known as Govoni Law, we quickly recognized the need to adapt to the modern market’s pace and the evolving legal and real estate landscapes.

Our commitment to excellence led to the creation of Agenzia Immobiliare Sarda in 2017, our dedicated real estate brokerage. This expansion allowed us to maintain high-quality assistance in the purchase and sale processes of properties, particularly in the captivating region of Sardinia. 

Catering to both Italian and international clients, Govoni Real Estate offers comprehensive real estate services, specializing in assisting buyers in their quest for residential properties in Italy. Our team, well-versed in the intricacies of the Italian real estate market, is committed to providing a seamless experience for those looking to make a home in the picturesque landscapes of Sardinia.
