Our Services

In the following section, we provide an overview about the services our team offers to our clients for the purchase or sale of real estate properties in Bogotá, Colombia.

  • Selection of Property

    In a first meeting, we discuss your requirements and establish a detailed property profile. In case we do not have a suitable property in our portfolio, we will find it for you, leveraging an extensive network of professionals and through collaboration with other real estate agents from the region.

    After a thorough pre selection of properties, we arrange viewing appointments with you. Depending on individual requirements we can connect our clients with a construction consultant to evaluate the condition of the property as well as to assess necessary repairs or remodeling costs.

  • Purchase of Property

    Every property transaction must be well prepared. Our team at Real Colombia leaves nothing to chance and only presents carefully selected properties. We guide you through sale negotiations and secure you the best possible terms for your property acquisition.

    We provide all relevant information to the purchase agreement contract installers (Notary Public) and accompany you to the contract singing. If desired we will have the sales contract and all other relevant documents translated for you.
