Our Story

It was back in 1991, when Giorgos Gavriilidis, a young Greek lawyer, arrived in Utrecht.

Seeing the interest that existed in commercial ties between Greece and the Netherlands, he started providing legal and consultancy services on cross border trade, specialising in real estate.

He saw the potential and value of offering the best possible advice to Dutch and Belgian buyers that were starting to discover Greece as a holiday home destination.

With his deep knowledge of Greek property and laws, Giorgos quickly won the trust of a growing group of buyers wanting a place of their own under the Greek sun.

Some years later, he then teamed up with Vangelis Nastos, a qualified translator and expert in European affairs and law.

With his language skills and passion for architecture, Vangelis helped Giorgos clearly and simply explain to Dutch and Belgian investors the dos and don’ts of buying a holiday home in Greece.

It was only a matter of time before Elxis secured its place as the top Greek real estate company operating in the Netherlands and Belgium and did so by delivering on its promise to offer the best services.

Enter Dion Gavriilidis. Carrying a wealth of experience in marketing and management from the Netherlands and Australia, Dion helped drive expansion plans and the company’s switch to new technologies and online procedures.

Since then Germany has become another key market for Elxis where buyers show a special preference for Crete – an island with a specially appointed sales team to assist German clients in their own language. Other European countries Elxis caters to include the UK, France and the Scandinavian nations, while investors further afield, from the USA and Australia have also benefitted from Elxis’ unwavering commitment to its clients.

The company has been investing heavily in its expertise and knowledge, giving top priority to sustainable properties that offer maximum value. Giorgos, Vangelis and Dion now lead a team of 14 full time employees at Elxis that has also partnered with an extensive network of associates throughout the country.
