About Us

Let us introduce ourselves

Carine Hitchcock, founder of the company, is a Franco-British national who has been living in Montenegro since 2008. She moved to Montenegro after studying Business Administration and Finance at La Sorbonne University (Graduated in 2002) in Paris, and after a few years running Jewellery Businesses in London and Paris (2002 – 2005). She has worked for the super-yacht marina Porto Montenegro in Tivat back in 2009 as Marina Business Manager when the Marina was launched.

She then started her own Property Development Business “Catareos” and built a first complex of 12 luxury eco-friendly apartments in the hills overlooking the Tivat bay, “Tivat Heights Residences”.  She also set up a complementary business focused on long-term rentals “Rentals Montenegro” to help the increasing number of expatriates settling in Montenegro to find accommodation suitable for year-round living.

Her focus on year-round living and expatriate living makes her an expert in what new-comers to Montenegro are looking for, and this is how, for example, she understood the need for smaller accommodations which were and still are a rarity on the market.  She therefore launched the concept of the “Mini Condos”. The first Mini Condos Residence saw 95% of the units sold off-plan before the start of the construction works.

Testimonials

Hear from our satisfied clients

Mini Condos leaseback program is an extremely advantageous and reliable program. We are very glad to work with Mini Condos believing that we did a true investment. Thanks for this beneficial program. Still owns the unit which is now managed by Mini Condos for Short Term Rentals.
by Narin Gökçe (buyer of studio apartment in Donja Lastva)
Izmir, Turkey
Being an expatriate in Montenegro and never having invested in real estate before, I had to be particularly cautious. Carine and her team reinforced my decision with their relevant and responsive communication. I was impressed by the intelligence of the 10-year Leaseback program, which allows both parties to find a genuine economic interest. For the past 2 years, all rent have been paid on time, and I can enjoy an investment without worrying or it taking up my time.
by Emmanuel (buyer of studio apartment in Donja Lastva)
France
We chose to go with the leaseback option because we are not residents all year round in Montenegro and it meant that we did not have to find and manage tenants ourselves, and it gave us a regular income in the country. It was very simple to arrange with Carine and her team, and they also cover the local tax liabilities. Three years in we are very happy that it has given us what we need, but it is also very flexible. We are not tied into a long fixed lease period, so if our circumstances change we can choose to manage the condo ourselves in the future. Still own the unit, still under the leaseback program.
by Gillian and Mike S. (buyers of studio apartment in Dumidran)
London, UK
I have purchased 2 apartments with Mini Condos and was very satisfied with the entire experience. For both apartments, I have taken the leaseback option and have been very satisfied with this program. Rents have always been paid on time, and the apartment has been maintained in a very good condition throughout the lease period. Still owns the units, still under the leaseback program.
