LUXURY REAL ESTATE BOUTIQUE CONSULTANCY

OPATIJA | LONDON | BOSTON | SEATTLE

We're a luxury real estate boutique consultancy. Useful, remarkable and worth seeking out. Work that makes the world better. We spend significantly more time consulting clients than anyone else thinks is reasonable. Kindness and a family tradition since 1985 with Alen's leadership since 2015. The roots of the Carlovich company were planted in the 1920s thanks to Alen's nonna Klara.


Carlovich Magazine


Carlovich is a centre of excellence for premium civil engineering and high-quality building materials consulting in the field of luxury real estate. You'll be amazed by our meticulous consulting procedure. We're building a world worth living in. We always have the two most important features with us: knowledge and kindness. There are 12 employees in Opatija, 7 in London, 4 in Boston and 2 in Seattle.

What does luxury real estate mean? Our clients work so much their entire life and they saved the funds. Now they want to invest their money into something worthwhile, beautiful and into something they would be proud of. Into a house that they can convert to a home. They don't want to buy a low-quality property. Luxury real estate = elegance and style + high-quality construction + premium building materials + a personal consultancy approach. Craftsmanship is luxury. Real estate is a luxe when it's tailored for a few people. Luxury means exclusiveness. You definitely deserve luxury real estate. We're here to assist you during your journey toward a lovely home. Why do we serve specific customers? Because they are demanding and they want high-quality real estate. We realised that we have so much knowledge and expertise to offer that we can't work with low demanding customers. If you serve one audience, youíve let another down. One focus means that something else got ignored. If you create something scarce, someone wonít get their hands on it. The very act of creation means that it wonít be the ideal solution for everyone. The opportunity is to find someone to delight and to embrace the fact that someone is not everyone. Do you offer fairly average safe services to the great masses of the population? A little bit of everything for everybody, nothing that special or remarkable for anybody? Our goal is to be useful, remarkable and worth seeking out. Generous work that makes things better. You can either turn your operation into selling the regular kind, pandering to the middle, putting everything in exactly the category they hoped for and challenging no expectations. Or you can do the incredibly hard work of challenging expectations and seeking out the few people who want to experience something that matters, instead of something thatís merely safe. We spend significantly more time consulting customer than anyone else thinks is reasonable. This leads to an extraordinary outcome. Customers arenít going to trust you because you asked them to. Theyíll do it when they believe that you are one of the few people who can lean outside of the comfort zone and bring back something extraordinary.

CIVIL ENGINEERING RESEARCH

What is the "pre-consulting period"? That's the period when we talk with potential clients and ask them what are they looking for. In many cases, our potential clients realise that it's not a good idea to buy or build a property or that their initial idea should be modified. Also sometimes we conclude that clients won't need our services after all because we advise them not to invest in real estate at this moment. Yes, our consulting procedure is different and we care about you.

CEBH Carlovich Effective Billing Hour is a result of many years of analysis and scientific research. Effective = success in producing a desired result. We developed this modern and fair billing system because we were not satisfied when we billed our clients every hour. For the last 10 years, our clients are only billed when our work produces a measurable result. 48% of TBH Total Billing Hours is always connected with preparation, study of construction books, strategic and creative thinking, civil engineering calculations, detailed analysis, travelling and other necessary administrative tasks needed for high-quality consultancy. For example, we work 8 TBH Total Billing Hours and 4,16 CEBH Carlovich Effective Billing Hours are billed. Luxury Real Estate Consulting: min 8 TBH Total Billing Hours + 20% VAT. Carlovich Premium Care Club Membership: 52 TBH Total Billing Hours + 20% VAT, for Carlovich clients with the invitation only. Please contact us by email regarding CEBH Carlovich Effective Billing Hour fee. Carlovich consultancy firm has high-quality and individual services with TBH Total Billing Hour fee above Ä850. Payment method: EUR (Ä) bank transfer. 20% UK VAT Value Added Tax is charged where applicable. The advance payments are performed in phases as work is realised.


Selling luxury real estate is too easy. We have a different approach based on civil engineering knowledge, kindness, experience and more than 35 years of tradition. These are Carlovich's scientific departments of excellence.


Choosing luxury real estate in the 21st century is unthinkable without the assistance of innovative new technologies in the construction, civil engineering and architecture. Remember, you can buy an apartment or house, but never a home.


Due to the high quality of service and personal approach, we accept a limited number of new clients. We don't sell real estate but we help you choose the best one for you. Often the best decision may be not to buy a property. Our honest advice will be useful to you. We aren't affiliated with property developers or real estate agents so we are neutral.

We need a minimum of 8 TBH Total Billing Hours to advise you regarding the selected luxurious property. Most often, clients hire us for consultations lasting 80 TBH Total Billing Hours. So far, we have worked with clients for a maximum of 160 TBH Total Billing Hours per client. We are here for you as long as it takes because it's not easy to purchase a high-quality property. We are with you in all phases of real estate selection with an emphasis on the quality, construction technology, location and building materials. We coordinate the construction if our clients want to build a luxury home from scratch. Our law, insurance and tax associates will also assist you because we cooperate with the best international boutique law, insurance and tax firms. These firms will bill you separately for their work. Carlovich Premium Care is the exclusive private club intended only for Carlovich clients with the invitation. Someone will always find a way to offer lower prices, but it is a race to the bottom. The race to the top has more sense for us. We focus on quality and integrity. Customer loyalty is achieved through consistent service that generates trust. We compete on service and experience rather than price. Itís being distinct, leaving an impression on customers with each interaction. Low price is the last refuge for people who donít have the patience to demonstrate value for those that need it. We've helped our clients to purchase a luxury property in various cities and countries: London, United Kingdom; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Zagreb, Croatia; Opatija, Croatia; Zadar, Croatia; Split, Croatia; Los Angeles, California; New York; Boston, Massachusetts; San Francisco, California; Fremont, California; San Ramon, California; Bel Air, California; Stamford, Connecticut; Scottsdale, Arizona; Vancouver, Canada; Paris, France; Sydney, Australia; Berlin, Germany; Milan, Italy; Belgrade, Serbia; Dubai, UAE; Doha, Qatar. Clients hire us to advise them regarding a property in Croatia and they also benefit from our expertise and hire us for advice when buying a property in their home country.



We often advise our clients the following: "Don't buy the selected property because the location, construction technology or investor is of questionable quality. Let's go together in search of something better - a property that we would also choose to buy for ourselves." It's not our goal to persuade you to buy any property.

Don't be impressed with our education because it means nothing unless you meet us and decide if we're persons with character and if we're persons that you can truly trust. The wise man understands that he knows nothing. In short, he realizes that there is so much more to learn than what he already knows, that to declare he knows everything he needs to know is ignorance at its finest. There is always a reason to learn something new. Why? Because through learning, we are able to better ourselves, and from here better the world around us. Being distinctive is a choice, and itís not an easy one. Because it requires you to stand for something and to serve a specific audience, not everyone. Unfortunately, people evolved our culture to focus on amusement instead of the journey toward better. When you create an excellent company, the remarkable nature of your service is part of the reason people buy it, and the reason they talk about it. But, some customers have no interest in your special capabilities. You can't work with clients who cannot perceive your superior value. Your company must stand for a unique value provided to a unique set of customers. We value the privacy of our clients. Our clients are individuals who don't want to publicly expose their plans about purchasing a luxury property. Due to this, we don't use any social media channels and we never publish where are we traveling for a meeting. We don't write a blog about our business and we don't share anything online.


Companies without a purpose aren't useful. We support nonprofits that bring mobile showers to people experiencing homelessness. Carlovich's premium meeting places are situated all around the world because our team comes to you. A service with kindness.


If you work overtime to offer mediocre services to non-demanding clients, consider an alternative and serve the most interested and demanding clients with outstanding services. If you're looking for the cheapest service, then we are not a good choice for you. The correct advice is invaluable.

If you canít monopolize a unique solution for a small market, youíll be stuck with vicious competition. We have the opportunity to do work that is unexpected, generous and original. It wonít be the cheapest, but it will matter. Focusing on the smallest viable audience makes so much more sense than trying to make average stuff for average people. Remarkable is something worth spreading. New. Unexpected. Emotionally moving. A real wow. Maybe a bit weird or outrageous. It provokes conversation. It's the opposite of boring. Unique, memorable and literally worth talking about. The reasonable people adapt themselves to the world, the unreasonable people persist in trying to adapt the world to themselves. Therefore all progress depends on unreasonable people. It's important to note that you either have or do not have the exactness and the character. It cannot be acquired or learned. The exactness and the character are our greatest virtues that we nurture and are extremely proud of. Kindness is the most powerful and most underrated agent of human change. Connection, possibility, invention, empathy, insight, care and justice are all up to us. Never think of gentleness as weakness. Be tough and gentle. The path to success is the pursuit of wisdom. We hope that we have at least briefly brought you closer to our values and what we strive for in our daily work with clients.
