“I purchased an apartment in BRNO as an investment six years ago (2007) through Czech Point 101. I have just sold that property and throughout my ownership have entrusted CP 101 to deal with all matters relating to that investment.

“From property management, dealing with tax returns and liaising with my bank in BRNO amongst other things they have shown themselves to be exemplary agents, always courteous and acting with integrity and clarity.

“I would recommend anyone wishing to purchase or sell a property in the Czech Republic to use them as they offer an outstanding level of service at reasonable cost.”

“Nathan has done a great job in building Czech Point 101 into a reputable organization for real estate investors looking to enter the Czech Republic.

“His understanding of the nuances of the local business culture, combined with his high personal ethics, serve to provide his clients with peace-of-mind that otherwise would be elusive if they decide to ‘go it alone’.”

“The Czech SRO setup process surely would have been intimidating for us as USA citizens, perhaps discouragingly so, were it not for your excellent guidance along the way. Truly, you and your associates have been the single most important factor in the success of our endeavour. No amount of effort on our part could have replaced your expertise in conducting the required steps at the right time and in the right format. I am also compelled to comment on the exceptional standard that you have set in your communications with us. I know of no business today that is able to offer the level of accessibility, response, and personal service that Czech Point 101 has provided during a process as comprehensive and as complicated as the SRO setup. You have earned our trust from the moment of our first communication, and you continue to do so at every interaction.

“Please know that it is almost impossible to quantify your client services—they’re/you’re that good.”

“Thoroughly professional and trustworthy. All of our questions were always answered promptly and with clear concise replies, we always knew exactly what was going on, what was required of us and by when.

“Being UK citizens, living in the Netherlands we thought that it would complicated to buy property in the Czech Republic, but everything went extremely smoothly, from the purchase of the ready made SRO to the property negotiations and the final transfer of the property. All of the documents we needed were translated clearly into English for us.

“I would definitely use Czech Point 101 again and would recommend them to anyone seeking to purchase property in the Czech Republic.”

“When we decided to look for a recreational cottage in the Krkonose Mountains, we also realized that without assistance from a reliable and professional advisor, we would not be able to do it. We looked for someone, where the expertise covered not only knowledge about the Czech laws and regulations but also knowledge about communication with other Europeans. We found both in Czech Point 101. We are very satisfied with Nathan and his team.”

“We were very pleased with the quality and level of service provided with your ‘closing’ service.

“Purchasing property in another country can be a very time consuming and confusing process, not to mention the language barrier and preconceived ideas from personal experiences. We appreciated your continuous support and detailed explanations of the various steps in the process. Your ability to explain the procedures in terms and in language that we could understand made the whole process much more relaxed and we believe, in the long run, much less expensive than had we tried to navigate through on our own.

“Overall, the experience was a very positive one and we would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone.”

“There are lots of companies offering advice and services related to property and business in Czech Republic but you’d be crazy not to try CZECH POINT 101 before spending your money anywhere else. “I have asked them questions on a diverse range of topics and they have always provided me with exactly the information that I was looking for (and often extremely important and valuable information that I hadn’t thought to originally ask). “Thanks Nathan and the CZECH POINT 101 team!”

“We bought a property in the Czech Republic in 2007 with the help of Czech Point 101, because my son is a Czech resident and we became very impressed with the country during our visits.

“We contacted Czech Point 101 and met with Nathan and decided to buy a property in the countryside around Brno which we could use as a holiday home as well as a rental investment. We agreed to use their Gold Level service and they provided us with details of a number of possible properties and I visited many of them with the help of Simon. Eventually we opted for a house in the lovely village of Pavlov and although the renovation was harder (and more expensive) than originally thought, it was still a good investment and gave us a great location to stay when we visited Czech. We rented it to a local who has bought it this year and again Czech Point 101 handled the process.

“We are very happy to say that all dealings with Czech Point 101 have been very positive and the staff (Nathan and Pavel especially) more helpful than you would expect with just a business arrangement. They definitely treat you as clients and give the best advice rather than simply look for the quickest way to complete the deal. We couldn’t possibly have managed to find the way through the complexities without them – especially with the differences in the processes for buying and selling property in Czech and the UK.”

“I can wholeheartedly recommend Nathan and his team to any prospective client. They have dealt with numerous problems in a professional way. They have helped me to obtain POAs, find tenants, purchase furniture, arrange for minor works to be undertaken, arrange connections to utilities, investigate high usage of those utilities, check references and a whole host of other means of assistance. This is exactly what a buyer like myself requires when one lives outside the Czech Republic.

“I have found their new software package provides clear accounting of income and expenditure on the properties. They send out monthly updates without having to be chased (if only every country was like that).

“My over-riding impression of CZECH POINT 101 is that they are genuinely honest, hardworking people and they will help property owners in any way that they can.

“You will not regret your decision if you choose CZECH POINT 101 as your property management company.”

“What can I say… you’ve found us the properties, you’ve introduced us to your excellent contacts (Daniel etc)… hell, you’ve even found us potential tenants! As they say in my local area: You are VFM—no, not ‘Very Friendly Man’, although of course you are—but ‘Value For Money’ and that is something that is very important to both of us. You have delivered on promises and continue to do so.

“I know I can also speak for Thomas and state that we were extremely lucky finding you as you have given us the potential to invest in an area full of difficulties and for that we are extremely grateful.”

“I would just like to start off by saying I have had nothing but the best experience with the services of Czech Point 101 and especially in dealing with Nathan. He was always very prompt in satisfying my requests and represents himself and the company in a very professional manner.

“When investigating property abroad, it is easy to be misled by people with vested interests in particular developments or companies. An independent agent can save hours of abortive time, avoid frustrations and answer the many questions which arise at all stages in a search and purchase.

“Czech Point 101 has been exceptionally helpful at all times. The background guidance notes were well worth reading as a preparation. The levels of personal service and communication have been great, particularly at a time when the property market is moving so quickly. Assistance with visits was extremely well organized as were the legal support and translation services. You do not expect everything to run perfectly but those matters within the control of Czech Point 101 were handled with courtesy and efficiency. Approaching matters with an open mind, a sense of humor and patient understanding is a two-way process to which the staff have responded marvellously.”

“I just wanted to let you know how what a great job Pavel has done for us and that we are very happy with your Power-of-Attorney Sale service.

“Although I was concerned at first that it required a payment up front, which is not in line with a typical real estate agent, the benefits and results from this service have been excellent. Pavel has been so efficient and proactive which in turn has provided confidence for us.

“You managed to sell three of my Czech properties, handling everything without my presence and timing the sales exactly to my mortgage fixation dates, saving us hundreds of thousands of CZK in penalties. A huge thank you from us both, your system certainly works.

“Also many thanks for helping us with the mortgage negotiations which has again resulted in a big saving.”

“Our recent acquisition of a flat in Brno would not have been possible without the competent assistance of the very professional team at Czech Point 101.

“Our dream of owning our own flat in Prague would have never happened had it not been for Czech Point 101. We are no strangers to owning rental properties, but managing one from 5,000 miles away…can’t do it. Before we purchased, we had to know that we had honest, competent people at the local level we could count on. Finding that didn’t happen over night.

“Here’s a real life example of honesty. Several years ago, following several prior years of correspondence with Czech Point 101, we contacted Nathan Brown and told him we were ready to contract services to establish an S.R.O., then a prerequisite for foreign ownership. It was a costly process, and Nathan could have taken our money. Instead, he said NO. He was aware of legislation relaxing foreign ownership laws. He suggested we wait six months to see if the S.R.O. requirement would still be necessary. Indeed, it was not. We saved thousands of US $ (Thanks Nathan.)!

“And, as for Czech Point 101’s Prague representative (Gin Khan Khup) is awesome. Khuppi is capable, multi-lingual, quick to respond and totally professional and pleasant.

“Yes, it’s a big decision and huge commitment, but Czech Point 101 can make it work. Czech Point 101 has been totally great. Can’t recommend more highly.”

“I have to say Thomas was superb throughout. He displayed intelligence and diplomacy in equal measure.

“We have found Nathan Brown to be utterly professional and trustworthy. We feel like he has given us good advice, and he has eased the process from start to finish. In addition, Nathan’s contacts (banking, legal and accounting) have proven to be extremely helpful and easy to work with. It is unlikely that we would have completed the purchase this summer without Nathan’s help, and with limited time to house hunt, this may have delayed our purchase until another year. With prices rising, it was well worth paying some money to save time.

“We would take the same route again, and feel that the money was well spent in order to ease and speed up the process. We used Nathan for the SRO setup and purchase process, and were pleasantly surprised by how smooth the whole process was. We were kept up to date at each stage, and our emails and phone calls were dealt with extremely promptly. We can thoroughly recommend Czech Point 101 and vouch for their professionalism.”

“The quality of support provided through the SRO setup was excellent. I always knew what to expect, what I needed, what to bring where and why.

“Communication has been one of the most impressive aspects: very quick, responsive and to the point. Queries are dealt with promptly and efficiently, and whenever progress is made, e.g. with SRO setup, one is informed of this, as well as of implications of new development(s) and future courses of action.

About us

Since 2003, Czech Point 101 has provided honest, reliable assistance to foreign investor groups and private individuals looking to profit from a growing Czech real estate market. As owner and managing director of Czech Point 101, Nathan Brown explains in his own words why Czech Point 101’s services are so highly valued by foreign and local investors:

“As a Canadian, speaking the same language as many of our foreign investors has helped a lot.

“But more importantly, we share the same business culture. Communication, transparency, meeting deadlines, responsiveness, customer service—these are all expected standards of business—whether the investor is British, American, or western European.

“I moved to this country several years ago, and it wasn’t easy in the beginning. It took me a long time to learn the system, build a strong team, and find competent lawyers and accountants.

“It’s been a long journey, but I am convinced our company is the most qualified in this country to assist foreign and local investors.”

team_meeting Nathan’s years of corporate and entrepreneurial success are an essential asset to any client investing in the Czech Republic, regardless of their previous experience in this country. Czech Point 101 is a composite team of customer service-minded people, with offices in the major Czech cities.

Each associate in the company is carefully chosen. This is supplemented by regular group training sessions which ensure that the same high standards, values nd procedures are implemented in each of our offices.

As Nathan alluded to, some of our current customers, before finding Czech Point 101, have had experiences with local firms that illustrate why foreign and local investors value the services that we provide:

“Just to let you know, I read with great interest your article/page regarding property purchase in the Czech Republic. Having no experience whatsoever but knowing what I wanted to purchase, I guessed things would go in a straightforward manner.

“Let me simply outline the problems I encountered… #3) The reality or property companies simply wanted me to do the deal at all costs, no matter what. Changing their minds seemed commonplace and they will in fact, sell you anything at all. They will simply talk their way out of problems that are perfectly real to you, the buyer. They simply want the deal, and that’s that. #4) Hidden costs, for example, charging the buyer fees for the purchase when in fact the seller pays the costs… #6) Finally the bureaucracy was the most daunting element. The less efficient the structures, the more time wasting and draining the whole procedure seemed…

“The experience may have cost me approx 3,000 euros or so all told, but look what I could have lost. EVERYTHING.

“My thanks to Czech Point 101 for setting the record straight with their experience and knowledge. Wish I had read their reports first, but knowing me, I had to find out for myself.”

— Cyril Fitzgerald (Dublin, Ireland)
