LoveIstra / Istraplus

Stella Štifanic, LoveIstra, Porec, IstriaBased in Porec, LoveIstra / Istraplus covers all types of property and specialises in new, high-quality stone houses. As a partnership of two long-standing, Porec-based  agencies, together they offer many years of Istrian real-estate experience. (Zvjezdana (Stella) Štifanic founded LoveIstra in 2000 and Iva Radolovic founded Istraplus in 2004. The two companies hooked up in 2007.)

“What makes us special is our contacts,” explained Stella. “Istria is a very traditional place, where who you know is very important. I was born here, my family is well known and I’ve worked in real estate for many years. Because of this, many local builders and developers work with us as sole agents – so we have many properties on exclusive offer and have the largest selection of new-build, stone houses in the area.”

Both Iva and Stella work primarily in the ‘tourist’ market, and Stella is the English-speaking member of the team. “We’re the first, and sometimes only, contact many people have with Istria,” she said. “So as well as helping them find their dream home, an important part of our role is helping them settle in, being here for them if they need help. No matter how long ago the sale, we’re always here to help.”

“I love Istria – that’s why I called my company LoveIstra,” said Stella with a big smile. “I also love meeting interesting people and showing them my wonderful homeland. This is the perfect job for me and I love it as much now as the day I started.”

If you park by the marina and tourist stalls, walk back and cross the road by the roundabout, and then head up the hill. LoveIstra / Istraplus is the second entrance on the right, through a small foot-gate.
