Who We Are

What do you want to be remembered for?

Huge success in business, helping others, raising a loving family, or something else?

In the summer of 2004, I came back from an international business trip.

Yet another business trip where I would just go through the motions, or at least I thought so.

Back then, I couldn’t have imagined it was going to be the trip that started the next big chapter of my life.

But when I came back home to Istria, I knew one thing for sure.

“I want freedom”, were the first words I said to my wife Nina, before my bags even managed to hit the ground.

Her lips formed a big smile, as she was approaching to wrap me in a massive hug.

She knew exactly what I meant.

At that very moment, the Maris Agency was born.

You might be thinking, “How the hell do freedom and running an agency go hand in hand?”, but let me explain in a moment.

For us, freedom means the sea.

It means the charming stone houses, the home-made olive oil, the rolling red hills, short distance to ski resorts, and the lively summer days under the warmth of the Mediterranean sun.

But it also means doing business with clients that we actually enjoy working with.

We are not a big agency, and that’s for a reason.

Not only do we love working in a family atmosphere with our team, but also working closely with our clients, who later become a part of our extended Maris family.

Now that I’m thinking about it, it might be the main reason why we truly LOVE what we do. And isn’t that the essence of true freedom?

Our goal is for Istria to become a home for positive people with a big heart, for different nationalities and cultures, who will cherish the beauty it has to offer...The stories it has to tell for those who are willing to listen.

We know that finding a home is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. And our specialty is helping you find that piece of freedom for yourself, while taking away the aches and pains that come along with it.

Over the years, we have seen highs and lows in every international property market. We’ve run into so many roadblocks, and asked so many questions, that we kept on extending our offer to serve you better.

To deliver a completely personalised approach, and cover all the aspects, so you can get the best possible outcome.

Meanwhile, we knew that turning into a giant agency means giving up on a high-quality, customised service we’d like to be remembered for. And that was not the compromise we were willing to accept.

The only reason why we are still in business after nearly two decades, is because we deeply care about our clients, and their needs.

Because every day, we try to be a bit better. To listen a bit more. To help whenever and whoever we can. And ultimately, to treat people the same way we’d like to be treated.

I once heard that the meaning of life is the number of people who benefited from your existence.

That’s something I was amazed by, and that has been stuck with me to this very day.

That mantra became my guiding philosophy.

And without any doubt, that’s something I’d like to be remembered for.

Maris means sea, but for us, it also means family.

And family is what makes a house a home.

We love this philosophy so much that we applied it to the Maris agency itself. Having it any other way simply wouldn’t feel right.
