Tuscany, of course, is known worldwide, but its neighboring state of Umbria has always been less in the limelight, although some of the most beautiful cities and towns in Italy, and beautiful villas, estates and luxury homes are to be found here, which is known as the "Green Heart of Italy".
Jim Hilgendorf, the principal broker of The Matchmakers, is also a veteran filmmaker, as the producer of "The Tribute Series", a highly-acclaimed series of travel films that are in homes, libraries, and schools all across the United States, several of which have appeared on PBS and international television.
Two of his films, "Mexico: A Tribute", and "Tuscany & Umbria: A Tribute", cover the two areas The Matchmakers are expanding into, and Jim knows these areas very well and his company works with a network of trusted real estate associates in these areas to help service his clients.
Towns in Tuscany, such as Cortona, the setting for the book "Under the Tuscan Sun"; beautiful hilltop towns such as Orvieto, in Umbria; and lovely colonial Mexico towns such as San Miguel de Allende, are some of the new highlights.
