I am so grateful that I chose to list my home with you Valentino. As you know this was the first time I had listed a home and really appreciate the time and effort you spent to make this experience a positive one from start to finish. Your enthusiasm is contagious and your knowledge of the market is incredible. God bless you Valentino you will forever be at the top of my list!!" - R.Porter
Valentino is an outstanding agent to work with. He is a skilled listener and negotiator, with very in-depth knowledge of the local markets. My husband and I listed three properties Moon Bay in Bodden Town and Bel Air in South South with him at the same time and while he sold one within few weeks, one took five months to sell. At no point in those five months did his dedication to selling the property waiver. He was just as aggressive and excited about selling the third property as he was the first. Without doubt, we would seek him out immediately for any upcoming real estate transaction in the future.

We'd never bought a house in the Cayman Islands before and weren't sure what to expect. Valentino Salvi from Utopia Realty exceeded our expectations. We first moved into the house as tenants few years ago and when the property was put on the market, he immediately contacted us. We made an offer and it was accepted.
Valentino has a very kind demeanor, he knows his stuff when it comes to homes, resale, inspections, specs, etc. I felt so comfortable with Valentino. He always kept in touch with us during the financing process and his advices were incredibly useful.
He wasn't pushy at all, he worked with our budget, and gave great advice about areas, schools, future resale. His team was also lovely to work with. His assistant Dinah she's great about communication and can answer any questions you have at any moment’s notice. We can't say enough wonderful things about Valentino and Utopia Real Estate Team. A++!! We LOVE OUR HOME!
Thank you so much Valentino and Dinah for going above and beyond to help with my house. Being off-Island it was important to have people I trusted managing the rental of my house. I was blissfully removed from the day to day management of the property. You took care of every issue and kept me informed appropriately, letting me make the call on decisions. I always felt like you had my back. When it came time to sell you made it so easy for me, despite the distance. It was all done quickly and efficiently. I appreciated your responsiveness, candor and advice. Clearly the depth of your experience is a huge advantage and sets you apart from the rest. I couldn’t have done it without you!
All the best, Lori Chartier
My wife and I had a dream of downsizing from our 3bed house in West Bay to a smaller house closer to where we work. Valentino and his skilled team helped make that dream a reality. The house was sold within three months. The sale went smoothly, and we just closed on an ideal new place we're excited to call home. Nobody knows the market better than Valentino. He really listens to our needs and goes the extra mile with customer service, too.
I have to say that Valentino is by far the BEST realtor we've ever worked with, his professionalism, personality, attention to detail, responsiveness and his ability to close the deal was Outstanding!!! If you are buying or selling a home, do yourselves a favor and hire Valentino Salvi from Utopia Realty.

Dear Prospective Homebuyers:
It is my immense pleasure to recommend Valentino Salvi from Utopia Realty as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation.
Valentino recently helped us buying a beautiful condo in West Bay. After looking at a couple places we made an offer on this one, which we closed within 3 weeks despite other bidders.
We found Valentino to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality.
Valentino was honest about some minor improvements the condo required and his advice worked like a charm.
We are pleased to recommend Valentino to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to purchase again he will be our first choice in real estate agents.
Donna Bodden Daije-Grand Cayman
Our first-time home buying process went very smoothly because Valentino is a very dedicated, hard-working agent.
His knowledge and experience was quite valuable in searching for the perfect home. Not only does he have a firm grip on the market, he also knows a lot about housing structure and potential problems to look for.
It’s easy to see that Valentino has a passion for his work and this is what sets him apart.

I met Valentino a few years ago when he assisted me in renting a property. Over the years he
has become more than just a realtor, he has become a friend. Having recently moved off island
and needing to sell my property, Valentino provided much needed support and was always
available to sort out the numerous issues that arose. He worked hard and was always willing to
do things that went above and beyond the role of a realtor. Finally the property was sold.
Throughout the process I was confident that Valentino would ensure everything went well. He
communicated frequently and kept me informed. He is conscientious and knowledgeable and I
would highly recommend him. Thank you Valentino
Valentino Salvi has been exceptionally professional and helpful troughout the entire process of selling my condo in Katurah Street. The sale was dealt quickly and efficenthly.

Valentino was alwyas available to answer my phone queries and my emails were responded to very quickly. I would not hesitate in recommeding Utopia Realty to our family and friends for future sales.
I toast to Valentino, Cheers!
I used Valentino?'s services ? for a property inspection and it was such a smooth process. From the moment ?I? spoke with Valentino by phone? I was ?able to schedule ?an inspection in a ?couple of days, ?Valentino ?contact?ed ? me to let me know he was on his way to the property, ?I? knew? instantly ? he would provide a great service. ?Valentino was ?very informative with questions ?I? had, and ?he his a ?friendly ?person ?to work with. The best part about everything was how efficient it all was, and getting the report back to me the same? day ?to present to the bank. Overall it was a first class service and ?I? will definitely recommend ?Utopia Home Inspections to others.
Thanks again Valentino,
Thanks again Valentino,
You are a superstar Valentino. Thank you for renting my condo at Hilton Estate in such short time. Dealing with you has been a smooth and stress free experience.
I will definitely be calling on you in the future and will recommend you highly. All the best.
Janeen Aljadir, Grand Cayman
I strongly recommend Valentino Salvi from Utopia Realty to anyone who may be thinking of renting or selling their property in these uncertain market conditions.
Valentino is by far one of the best agents operating in Grand Cayman. He has rented most of my numerous properties over the years. His calm, flexible and relaxed approach towards real estate is only matched by his deep knowledge of the local market.
If you are looking for a hard working, honest and dedicated agent to rent or sell your home, then looks no further than Valentino!
Marino Flelli, Cayman Islands
Just wanting to let you know how impressed I am with you finding tenants for our rental properties. Everything was done so quickly from the advertising, open house and processing of applications and we are extremely grateful for this, especially at this time of year! Thank you for your hard work and dedication and we hope you have a fabulous Christmas and New Year. You really have exceeded our expectations!
Lise Helie- Cayman Islands
We would like to say a huge Thank you to you Valentino and your sales team for all your hard work that was put into our sale recently. The property was listed for many years by various Real Estate companies on Island but they could not provide a good buyer, you managed to sell it within three months.
From the first time we dealt with you we found you to be very informative, honest, polite and full of so much positive energy.
We were very happy with the way our whole sale was handled and the way you kept us up to date and informed at all times of our sales progress. We had a lot of confidence in you as you showed a lot of professionalism and understanding of the real estate market.
Once again a big Thank you!!
I have always found Valentino Salvi very professional and extremely personable when renting out my properties. He presents and articulates when communicating, and at the same time his easy manner and cheerful personality puts everyone at ease. He has always provided logical and reasonable recommendations to me as well as ensuring a lot of detail in his synopsis of potential tenants during his efforts in leasing out my properties'
I absolutely give my strong recommendation to anyone wishing to use his services.
Over the years having owned multiple properties on the island, I have dealt with many real estate agents. Big names, big name companies etc... None even come close to Valentino. I have worked with him for 2 years now. As I currently live overseas, dealing with a rental property has not been easy. But Valentino has been a God send. He has taken care of having the unit fixed, after damage had been caused by past tenants (placed by a well known so called Reputable agent). He takes care of EVERY detail big or small and has even followed up with me after he was paid. This never happens. I highly recommend Valentino as he is a FULL service Realtor"
We wanted to thank you for the home inspection that you performed for us. The overall process of purchasing a home is a daunting task, especially when it is your first home and have never been through the process before. We were very impressed by the thoroughness of your inspection and the manner in which you went through each step. We were also very impressed and thankful for the amount of time you spent explaining everything you were doing and the tips you gave us on home maintenance throughout the process. We truly felt like you had our best interests at heart at all times. We highly recommend your service to any one thinking of purchasing a home. The peace of mind provided in truly knowing the integrity of the construction inside and out is invaluable.
