Carlovich real estate and Carlovich residential property management are part of the Carlovich Engineering Group since 2015. and a centre of excellence in Croatia for civil engineering, building materials and construction technology. We have 23 employees in London, 12 in Rijeka and 14 in Zagreb. We're building a world worth living in.

Civil engineering and real estate consulting. We offer Matterport 3D and Ricoh Theta 360° imaging of the interior and exterior of all properties you are considering for purchase. In this way you can easily choose a property, especially if you are not in Croatia.

Due to the high-quality of service and personal approach, we accept only two new clients per month and there is a waiting list. 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 sign an NDA non-disclosure agreement with our clients.

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." We're saving you from a bad investment and it's not our goal to persuade you to buy any property.

If you're looking for the cheapest classic property manager, then we are not a good choice for you. The correct advice is invaluable.

With the Carlovich Puls service, we take care of the health of all tenants. The property is made up of people and property management makes no sense if we don’t take care of the tenants.

Welcome, to begin with, read why we're dealing with residential property management and real estate consulting. My name is Alen Karlovic. I was born in 1985 and I've attended high school Gymnasium Andrija Mohorovicic (science and math). Also, I've graduated from the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the University of Rijeka (Master's degree in structural engineering). I completed an additional specialization in construction project management at Columbia and Michigan University. I am the originator of the participation of Croatian faculties of civil engineering in the competition in the construction of low-energy houses Solar Decathlon, Washington DC. In 2011, the company Ytong chose my graduate thesis "The optimal technology selection for a family house construction" as the best of all civil engineering faculties in Croatia. Since 2016 in England, I have been a visiting lecturer in the field of the application of generative construction, generative architecture, artificial intelligence and new technologies in project management. For five years I was directly involved in the management of housing complexes in London. What else do I do? Mostly consulting in the field of building materials and real estate. I'm interested in new construction technologies, geotechnics, soil mechanics, foundations, construction organization and technology, structures, project management, 7D planning, urbanism and residential architecture. I am attending a postgraduate doctoral program and actively monitoring all scientific research in the field of civil engineering. Also, in Europe, I was the first to introduce organic milk paint (Groton, Boston, Massachusetts, USA) for wood and interior walls. A special team of associates is dedicated exclusively to this and has been successfully serving satisfied customers for years.

"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. For knowledge is not meant to be for our own personal gain, but for the gain of community as a whole."

I manage your property as a professional and thus guarantee top quality. Our goal is to have a premium service with as few residential buildings that we manage as possible. Property management is not good at the moment. Tenants should be properly advised and we shouldn't arrange a commission with the construction workers. Currently, we take care of the exclusive and luxurious buildings in Opatija, Hvar, Split, Zadar, Dubrovnik and Zagreb (from 325 m2 to 1465 m2). Our buildings are so well maintained that we do not need urgent interventions. Exactly on such interventions, the highest amount of sinking and reserve funds is unnecessarily spent. Residential buildings are insufficiently insured and repair works are unfortunately performed with the cheapest building material. We don't prefer arrangements with specific construction workers, because this is not a good option for tenants. Property managers with low prices always arrange a commission with the construction workers. For this reason, I started my property management brand because it is necessary to work more honestly. The brand is named after my last name and thus it's completely tied to me. Therefore, we can in no way allow bad service. We are proud of the fact that we pay all the bills next working day. Also, we do not take over all the buildings because if we have too many of them, the quality of our work wouldn't be so great. Please contact us only if you are interested in high-quality property management. Any property manager will do a solid job if you don't have high expectations.

Monthly payment is made to the Kuna bank account of my consulting and civil engineering company Konsiteo Ltd that is founded in 2015. and based in London. We have a business bank account in OTP bank Croatia, we are registered for the management of residential buildings and civil engineering consulting and we are in the croatian VAT system. The property management fee depends on system complexity and construction year. New nZEB buildings have more modern systems to maintain. The payment for the management service is made by direct debit on the first day of each month for the current month. The property management contract is signed for a period of at least one year. If you aren't satisfied after one year, you can cancel the property management contract within one month. In buildings that choose us as a manager, for the sake of quality care, the value of apartments grows. If you don't properly maintain a building, the value of the apartments decreases during the first two years. A satisfied customer is our top priority. We pay special attention to the plans for disinfection of a residential building.

Are you buying an apartment in a new building and you are not sure if it's well built? Are you buying a house? We advise you and help you during the entire purchase process. We analyze building materials, construction technology and location in detail. Why are we doing this? Because it's very demanding to choose a high quality new apartment or a new house and real estate agents are not always neutral. We will help you with everything you need to move in. We make long-term friendships with satisfied clients. Contact us by email. You may not even buy the desired property right after our meticulous consultation. In cooperation with: taxes - Mazars, law - Kallay & partners.

A few years ago, I became a tenant's representative in my building. It was the first time we have seen our property manager after 20 years. Then we decided to find a new one. After a detailed comparison of all property managers, insurance companies and banks, I decided that something needed to be done and to offer high-quality service in Croatia. Specifically, at that time, we couldn't find a better property manager. The question is, how to invest in the purchase of a high - quality exclusive or luxurious apartment and at the same time not have the opportunity to choose a top property manager? How to choose us as a property manager? It's necessary to collect the signatures of the majority of co-owners, and all signatures must be digital (the EU list of trusted service providers) or notarized. We will help all co-owners to obtain a digital certificate, which they will continue to use.

  • Exactness

    We're focused on details and you won't find another team similar to us. Please prepare yourself for the best in class service.

  • Insurance

    Our team cooperates with Allianz insurance company. It's the best insurance for your property and it's not the cheapest one.

  • Legal team

    It's important to have high-quality law experts. We cooperate with a law firm Kallay & partners, so you can always count on us.

  • Construction

    Construction workers are always ready to help. The cheapest worker isn't the best option so we should choose wisely.

  • Technology

    We use top technology like mobile application for tenants, drone inspection, AR and capturing 360° photos for maintenance

  • Experience

    We're experts in the field of building materials and construction, so we can always give proper advice regarding your property



  • Business bank

    Our team decided to cooperate with the Erste bank. Tenant's representative signs all bills online. It's very convenient.

  • Monitoring

    Extraordinary events are not a problem. We monitor with sensors and cameras and react in case of fire, flood or burglary.

  • Digital signature

    Decisions regarding the building are signed by the co-owners with their own digital certificate. In that way, all decisions are valid.

  • Online meeting

    We organize online meetings with co-owners, lawyers, craftsmen and construction experts through the Threema Work application

  • Bookkeeping

    Co-owners have an online account overview. All incoming and outgoing transactions of the building are detailed in the web application.

  • Payment

    Every month, we will send you an email notification to pay by internet banking transfer. We can also set up a direct debit.


  • Digital twin

    Collecting and visualizing data during the building lifecycle and generating a real-time interactive model of the property

  • Home handyman

    In case of need for intervention, we organize the arrival of the handyman: plumber, locksmith, glazier, electrician

  • Thermography

    With a camera we detect the location of water penetration. Construction works are performed in a targeted manner.

  • Utilities

    The device locates the exact position of underground installations. No more digging by heart and unnecessary work.

  • Body cam

    A complete tour of your facility and all works are recorded with a special camera. Full transparency is very important to us.

  • Carlovich Puls

    We install a panic button as needed and the tenant can send family members and us a sign of the need for medical intervention

We take care of your property like it's ours because it's time for something better and fairer. Your real estate deserves knowledge and fairness & more than just standard service. We don't offer a combination of high quality service and the lowest price. We also support the operation of the mobile bathroom for the homeless in Croatia. We're the originator of the mobile bathroom, following the example of similar projects in Berlin, London, Melbourne, Los Angeles, Nashville and New York.

Click here and find out when you should terminate the contract with us

The fastest way to reach us is by chat, email, Messenger, Viber or WhatsApp. We are rarely immediately available by phone. Please leave a message, and we will call you back. Daily, we follow trends in property management, law and construction. In line with modern trends, we organize all tenant meetings via video conference. We were the first in Croatia to introduce the use of a digital signature of all co-owners and care for the health of the tenants. Premium service for investors: we can regularly visit the building site right from the start of the construction process. We are the first team in Croatia that offers such an innovative service. In this way, we can observe all the details from the foundations to the roof. The more we know, our service will be better after the construction. When selling apartments under construction, investors list us as a property manager and are thus able to increase the selling price per square meter. Carlovich property management is a synonym for outstanding quality.

You can also choose any other insurance instead of Allianz or another bank instead of Erste. Residential buildings unnecessarily and all too often change the insurance companies and banks. We can work with the bank and the insurance of your choice. As we do not have contracts with construction companies, we do not have contracts with banks or insurance companies. Contracts with construction workers, banks and insurance firms in the area of building management are always to the detriment of tenants. Namely, we are here for you, not for the reason that through exclusive contracts we think of ourselves. It is enough for us that you pay the management fee. One of the most dangerous decisions you can make is agreeing to a loan from a property manager or contractor. The loan is always negotiated exclusively at the bank. Management is a simplistic term. Within the service, you always have at your disposal expert consultations in the field of maintenance, construction works and construction materials.


Our meeting offices. We come to you!



We pay great attention to the protection against coronavirus. All communication takes place online, and in case of need for direct contact we use protective measures: FFP3 mask, disinfectant, gloves and face shield. In June 2021, we were vaccinated with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine against COVID-19 disease.



"We hope that we have at least briefly brought you closer to our values, opinions and what we strive for in our daily work with clients. If you don't choose us, we are free to offer you a piece of well-intentioned educational advice. In this way, you will always be satisfied that you have learned something on our website. When buying a new apartment, try to choose a building built of brick (Wienerberger, Unipor, Leipfinger Bader) or aerated concrete (Ytong). If that isn't possible, please choose a building in which the load-bearing structure is made of reinforced concrete, and the non-load-bearing structure is made of brick or aerated concrete. If the whole building is exclusively a reinforced concrete structure with plasterboard partition walls, we would not recommend you buying such an apartment."

And at the end of our presentation, 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. Also, kindness is the most powerful and most underrated agent of human change.

We use digital technology during the management of a residential building and consultations when choosing a property. But whenever needed, we send all the necessary documentation between us and the co-owner and between us and the client by DPD. DPD is our long-standing partner for fast local and international document delivery.


A service with kindness
