Client Reviews

Hi Andy and Sorelle, I would like to say thanks for all the help in buying my villa in Spain. You where both very helpful showing me a number of properties. As this was completely new buying in Spain you both helped me a lot throughout the whole transaction, and nothing was too much trouble. So thanks again. I am now now looking forward to many happy holidays in San Miguel!

Hi Andy & Sorelle, We have been shocked how quickly you managed to sell the property. We had been expecting it to take a year or more in the current climate. The photos you did of the apartment were brilliant and really showed the apartment off to its best, so much so - I nearly bought it myself - well done to Andy for them. You and Andy completing all the 'extra tasks' for the buyers, ( the list is endless ) I tend to think this was the main reason it was all done so successfully, smoothly and quickly. I know my solicitors were impressed. It certainly took the pressure off us. Great team work; fantastic personal service ... all with a happy ending.
