The Via Bertolini Difference

Via Bertolini, a full-service granite company that recently expanded its business to Ocala, is well aware of this fact. With offices in Brazil, Kentucky, and now Florida, Via Bertolini has built a reputation on quality and customer service.

“We focus on quick turn-around time, excellent quality, and great customer service,” notes Russell Hamm, company president. “We know what we can accomplish within a day or a week, so we never bite off more than we can chew. We never compromise our quality for quantity. We understand that it’s the small details that make all the difference.”

Hamm realizes that importing, fabricating, and installing the world’s finest granite isn’t enough.

“In the granite business, the biggest complaint from customers is that it takes days to get a quote and then a long time to get the product delivered and installed once a template has been made. We pride ourselves on the fact that our customers never have to wait weeks for a quote. You’ll typically have your quote within 24 hours, if not the same day.”

Once measurements are taken and the granite is ordered, Via Bertolini customers routinely see their product delivered and installed within a week.

The Via Bertolini Advantage

A major advantage of working with Via Bertolini is that there is no middleman involved, saving customers both time and money.

The company’s main office is located in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the country that supplies much of the world’s granite. Because they are literally buying from their own company where top craftsmen are in charge of the fabrication, Via Bertolini has much greater buying power than many other smaller granite businesses.

“It’s very unusual in this business not to have a middleman,” explains Hamm, “and we pass the savings on to the customer.”

With its own granite block processing sites in Sao Paulo and Espirito Santo, Brazil, Via Bertolini is able to ensure that products are fabricated to the highest standards possible, ensuring first quality every time. Specializing in imported Brazilian granite, Via Bertolini also offers a wide selection of colors from around the world.

“At all times we have in stock in our warehouse 15 to 25 of the most popular colors,” says Hamm, “but there are literally thousands of different colors available and we can basically get whatever anyone wants.”

The Choices Are Endless

A visit to the Via Bertolini showroom provides a gracious setting where you can comfortably meet with one of their knowledgeable sales staff. In addition to looking at actual granite samples, you have the option of looking for colors not currently in stock by reviewing catalog offerings and computer images on the plasma screen.

Once you have made a decision on granite color and edge design, a staff member will come to your home and take careful measurements. You will then receive a quote and, if the quote is acceptable, your order is placed and the granite product usually arrives and is installed within three to five days.

All work — from initial consultation and sales to measuring and installation — is done by Via Bertolini. “We don’t sub anything out,” emphasizes Hamm.

For the past decade, Hamm has worked with distinguished builders on both residential and commercial construction projects out of the Nicholasville, Kentucky office. With many clients involved in the Thoroughbred industry, opening another office in the heart of Florida horse country in Ocala made sense. Hamm and partners hope this is just one of many Via Bertolini stores that will eventually open across the country.

In addition to its substantial custom orders, Via Bertolini carries some pre-fab Brazilian-made vanity tops in standard sizes.

“We’re able to offer these at unbelievable prices,” says Hamm. “They are first quality but the price is similar to cultured marble, which is a man-made product. Granite has always been such a high-end business. We know we could charge more for these vanity tops, but our philosophy is that we wanted to open up a market for homeowners who might not be able to afford to have granite kitchen countertops.”

The Look of Granite

Granite’s beauty and durability make it an excellent choice for kitchen countertops and bathroom vanity tops. In addition, Via Bertolini fabricates custom dining/conference room tables, as well as coffee tables and end tables. Via Bertolini simplifies the entire process by offering custom fabrication and installation locally and, on large projects, anywhere in the continental U.S.

“Our prices get people in the door and make them curious because we’ll beat anybody in town,” notes Hamm. “But what we really take pride in is our customer service, quick turn around time, and being able to offer the highest quality product and workmanship available.”

For the finest in old world experience and tradition combined with modern technology, call Via Bertolini today. Discover how the highest quality granite can fit into your new home or business construction or remodeling project.
