The firm, which is managed by Gianluca Righetti, serves the high-end residential real estate market throughout the canton of Tessin, in particular the region of Lugano, Locarno and Ascona. This new office builds on the strong presence that Cardis Sotheby’s International Realty already has across Switzerland through their seven offices.

“Our expansion across Switzerland continues our commitment to providing access to the Sotheby’s International Realty network’s exclusive real estate services in key countries around the world,” said Philip White, president and chief executive officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. “This affiliation, which strengthens our presence in Europe, offers us entrance into this famous and attractive Swiss market close to the Italian border. We are very pleased that our global clientele will now have access to our services in this historic and beautiful country.”

According to Gianluca Righetti “It is the team’s mission to add quality to everything it does, placing every individual client at the centre of its endeavours and providing a complete service at every stage of the process. The quality of our services is based on three main factors, detailed knowledge of the market and its dynamic, precise and proven procedures and a motivated, responsible and competent team. Immobiliare Fontana has been synonymous with competence, dynamism and professionalism since 1926 and now we add to that the international network of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand to form a very powerful combination” he said.

The Sotheby’s International Realty® network currently has more than 12,800 sales associates located in approximately 660 offices in 47 countries and territories worldwide. Fontana Sotheby’s International Realty listings will be marketed on the website. In addition to the referral opportunities and widened exposure generated from this source, the firm’s brokers and clients will benefit from an association with the Sotheby’s auction house and worldwide Sotheby’s International Realty marketing programs. Each office is independently owned and operated.
