Selling your property

Think Slovenia is a fully licensed and insured real estate agency operating since 2006. We have experience of selling over 300 properties in Slovenia and on our website we continually list circa 100 properties for sale with an emphasis on beautiful, affordable holiday homes and rental investment properties. Buyers and sellers from all around the world have trusted in our high levels of service and expertise and it would be our pleasure to help you to sell your Slovenian real estate if you choose us to do so.

Some recent sold properties:



We offer sellers of real estate in Slovenia a unique combination of domestic and international exposure as well as nearly 20 years of experience in marketing properties within Slovenia and internationally. Like most agents in Slovenia we charge commission to the seller with the buyer covering 2% of the sales costs (usually in the form of the property sales tax). Whilst the structure is similar, our rates are lower than many agencies and we offer greater international exposure, a higher quality presentation of your real estate and a very proactive, hands-on approach to the sales process, with special sensitivity to the additional support that international buyers and sellers of real estate in Slovenia may require. Buyers choose us based on our reputation, exposure and end to end package of purchase, renovation and rental management services.

Whilst many of our sales are between Slovenian buyers and sellers, we specialise in reaching the international market for Slovenian real estate and have worked with buyers from all around the world including the UK, USA, Belgium, Netherlands, Russia, Italy, New Zealand, Australia, Qatar, UAE, South Africa, Ukraine, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Ireland and many others. We have native / fluent English, Slovene, Croatian, Russian & Italian speakers in our office to help our buyers and sellers feel well looked after.

We value our reputation and trust of our clients very highly and will endeavour to offer you excellent service in all our dealings with you and your real estate. We are very proud of our many past testimonials from satisfied clients:

Thank you very much for a successful cooperation with selling our property. You are great – in every step: from obtaining a client to realization. Fast, helpful with dealing with bureaucracy and friendly. Well done! I hope that with your help we will sell another property. We wish you good work for the future and lots of satisfied clients, because you deserve it. You deserve the warmest recommendation! - Nada

I trusted the sale of my properties to Think Slovenia and can say it very briefly: professional team with professional attitude, which will not disappoint. Pia and Anamarija watch over every step of the sale and you cannot expect anything else but success with this professionalism. Very satisfied and strongly recommend! - Darjo

We are very thankful for the professional service that Think Slovenia provided during our property sale. Dan and Anamarija from Think Slovenia proposed a hybrid solution to find a well-matched buyer making sure we were able to get the price we needed. Faced with additional complications that we live in Belgium and the COVID-19 lockdown, this agency was right there to help turn the situation into a smooth process. Comparing to the local market agents, Think Slovenia proposed to us the best value for our property. Extremely dedicated to the needs of their clients, it was evident from our first meeting that Dan and Anamarija were willing to put in the time and effort to ensure a successful outcome. Whether you are looking for a place in Slovenia to rent or relocate,  the importance of having an agency focused on ex-pats cannot be understated. To that end, we would highly recommend Think Slovenia to anyone. If we plan to spend our holidays in Slovenia again, we will look forward to having Anamarija and Dan look after us again. - Sofie & Alexander

We want to thank you for all the help and support that you've given over the years, both with the sale of this property and with the letting and sale of our other house. All of you at Think Slovenia have always combined a thoroughly professional service with a friendly, helpful and "can-do" attitude which is wonderfully reassuring - it's always been great to know that you had our backs and were able to come up with thoughtful and helpful suggestions to any problems.  - Caroline

I take this opportunity to express our gratitude. Vincent is usually the writer for the two of us, but now that the sales process is nearing it's end, I also want to say some final words. We are so happy with how everything has gone over the past year. With the professionalism of your organization, the good communication and your impressive knowledge of the market. I can safely say that without you we would have made some big mistakes. Fortunately, we have been saved from that and will soon have a successful sale.  So thank you very much for everything. You are the best and a warm recommendation to anyone who wants to buy a house in Slovenia. - Kim

Thank you so much for all your help!  We really appreciate your input and help over the years. Think Slovenia has been a pleasure to work with. Professional and always willing to try to sort things out!  It is a pity that our journey ended when it did but at least we had a good investment with the flat. - Noeleen (For more testimonials please click here.)

Thanks to the profile of our buyers our properties for sale are naturally focused in and around the main tourist areas around Slovenia and in particular Ljubljana, Bled, Bohinj, Kranjska Gora, the Soca Valley, Krvavec, Goriska Brda, Karst, Piran & the Adriatic coast. To a lesser extent also in proximity to spa centres in the South and East of the country and Maribor, Ptuj & Prekmurje. We also have considerable success at selling rural properties in less obviously touristic areas. These properties are generally in beautiful locations often with substantial land plots and privacy. Generally speaking wherever our buyers are looking for properties outside of resorts / towns they want beautiful views / settings / surroundings for the property in terms of views and surrounding nature.

We sell a very wide range of properties - from weekend chalets in the Alps to charming Mediterranean stone houses for renovation on the Adriatic coast. From farms in idyllic rural settings to high tech new build apartments. From building land plots to beautiful apartments in historic buildings in Ljubljana's old town.  

Virtually all of our properties can be considered either suitable for holiday homes either for personal use or rental purposes or suitable as an investment property. By investment property we mean properties which will return a decent short or long term yield in locations with long term scope for capital growth.

Our standard agency commission is 3.75% of the real estate sales price charged to the seller, with the possibility for sellers to request that the buyer provides a contribution to the sales costs in the form of 2% property sales tax (DPN). 

The standard agency commission is on the basis of a non exclusive agency relationship. For exclusive agent statuswe offer 0.25% reduction on the commission level, with an additional discount of 0.25% available in the event of self-viewing by a buyer who subsequently purchases the property. 

In addition to the agency commission the seller pays a share of costs of drafting contract by lawyer or notary, notary certification fees and capital gains tax if appropriate to the property. 

For sellers based abroad we have options available for us to be authorised to sign contracts and also to file seller’s sales tax related documents on their behalf.

The services included in our commission are described in detail in our General Trading Conditions, but in brief include marketing the property, managing viewings and conducting the sales process in the event of a sale. 

An example of charges for a residential building with a sales value of 250,000 EUR. This is just an informative calculation and may differ depending on specific circumstances regarding buyer / seller / the property / prevailing legislation at the time of sale:

The Think Slovenia web platform, with dual language English and Slovenian listings, performs very strongly on Google with first page search results for a huge range of Slovenian real estate related searches. So high levels of exposure for your property come through listing on our site and in addition we promote properties for sale on our social media channels and a wide range of international and domestic Slovenian property portals. We continually have a large base of buyers searching for specific property types / locations and if your property fits in their needs, our system will send them an automatic alert about it. We also have a strong network of partner agents around Slovenia with whom we often co-market properties.

An important part of marketing your property is of course finding the right price to fit your aims and the current market conditions. We can help in setting prices based on our experience of the market and data about similar property sales. If an official valuation ir required we can put you in contact with our certified valuation partners.


We are fully insured in accordance with Slovenian laws on Real Estate Mediation. We have two licensed brokers fully employed at our company Pia Tuma Bendall, real estate license no. 01207, dated 11. 6.2007 and Anamarija Marcina, real estate license no. 02415, dated 29. 6. 2015.

We have a comprehensive guide to the sales process in Slovenia here.

We pride ourselves on our proactive and hands-on approach to managing the sales process with extra help and support for international buyers and sellers who may not be so familiar with the common practices and processes regarding their real estate in Slovenia as local people may be. 

We have experience of a very wide range of sales since 2006 including many agricultural land sales, sales of protected buildings and real estate in special areas such as the Triglav National Park. In addition we have worked on many sales where defects to the property title of publically published data about the real estate need to be corrected before the sale can take place as well as where legalisation of a building is required and which can often be done in tandem with the other elements of the sales process. 

We offer non Slovenian resident buyers and sellers the possibility of setting up power of attorney arrangements so that the sale of real estate does not require their presence in Slovenia and specialise in helping buyers understand the rental potential of desired real estate and helping them assess possible renovation costs and procedures for the real estate, including the arrangements of architectural surveys which are conducted during the sales process.
