Siti Purba and Eugene Shivnan are my trusted Property Agents in Bali/Indonesia. Since I started acquiring Villas in 2011. I have turned to them not only for purchasing properties. But many times simply for advice, or a friendly ear. They remain at the pinnacle of their game, and will provide factual information and data. Even if it means a deal not come their way from it! This impartially makes them special in an industry not known for it. I recommend them as individuals and Real Estate Professionals, without hesitation.
