A Huge Step in the Right Direction for Montenegro’s LGBT Community
13.08.2021Homosexuality in Montenegro still remains a very sensitive subject, as it does with most of the Balkan Regions, however, there is a deeper understanding that times are changing rapidly and more needs to be done to integrate everybody, including those from the LGBT community.
Last year, Montenegro became the first Non-EU country to legalize same sex partnerships and in a historic move, the first same sex marriage took place last week in the Coastal resort of Budva. The union was between two women, both from abroad but with Montenegrin origins, and Milijana Jelusic who is a municipal official in Budva commented ‘We are glad that our Municipality was able to be the first to apply the Law on Life Partnership, and we wish happiness and a lot of love to the partners in their life together.
Narrowly supported, but supported all the same the government had a deadline of July 15th to approve the New Law and finalize the legislative framework which allows new couples to register the marriage in their local office, and the new law goes as far as allowing the regulation of financial support, division of joint property, social security and health cover for partners and family visits to hospitals or jails.
Certainly much more needs to be done both in Montenegro & the Balkans, as recognised by Tamara Srzentic (Minister of Public Administration, Digital Society and Media), but it’s on the move and it’s a big step forward in the right direction.
Of the other ex Yugoslav countries in the region, only Croatia and Slovenia have the same law, although Serbia does have plans to introduce it shortly.
At the beginning of April 2022, our family living in Prague bought a house in Sutomore with the assistance of your company.
Let me express my gratitude to the management of your company for the service provided, and especially to your employees - Anastasia Zeyak, Alexei Grachev and Elena Bozhovich for their attention, patience and even care for the whole time of buying real estate and the services provided after the purchase.
I would really like all companies to work with the same quality of service. After coming into contact with this kind of attitude towards the client, all our environment, if necessary, will refer to your company only.
With gratitude on behalf of our family.

Last year we decided to find a new home close to the sea. It was quite difficult in the beginning to make the right choice. Once we found CMM Company was a great luck! We immediately received detailed consultation on the country and purchase opportunities. Being attracted by Kotor - one of the most amazing parts of the coast, we decided to take a family trip and maybe make our dream of new home come true. As just discoverers of Montenegro, we were accepted like at home which was a one more pleasant surprise. The most important, we received all detailed information about country regions and procedure of buying property during the first few days. And how beautiful the car journeys were! Difficult choice, but when you find the home you want you can't refuse it. CMM did best to help us with this finding! All the purchase procedure passed well with CMM professional work! Now we are happy owners of a wonderful house with a Kotor bay view, being perfectly served by CMM Management company (of course, we've chosen CMM as professional house manager). Hope our friends and relatives would also move to Montenegro with the CMM help soon !!!

Dear CMM team, just to leave a small feedback on the superjob you've done ! It was not an easy period for us with a child. As we had to sell our home property and decided alternatively buy some nice house at Montenegrin coast. We were truly frightened at the start. My colleague, being your customer, gave a good recommendation, so, we called the office. All the part, covering seach and purchase in Montenegro, was quickly, safe and perfectly done. Good luck and further success and propsperity to the company! Special thanks to Alexander and Snezana for professional approach!

Always thought that buying property abroad isnervous and difficult task. CMM changed my mindset. I felt support and care in every step: from the first call arranged till receiving the Owner's list. I am also happy about how they make my apartment management. Now, whenever me or my family members come home to Montenegro, I am absolutely confident that my apartment is in the best condition!

Good day! The first time we met professionally organised step by step work with property in the Southern country. It was a nice surprise for me and my spouse. Well-established algorithms helped us to understand country, its particular features, pluses and drawbacks. Professional manager (Petar Kuzmich) helped us to avoid mistaken choice and provided a really wide number of options to choose from. We felt and still do absolutely safe while buying a house. Happy to come across with your company! Will recommend to our neighboors and family friends in first Norway home.
