Subject: Testimonial

We had been looking to buy a property in Spain for a couple of years but never had confidence in any of the Agents we had discussions with on possible purchases.

I found Spanish Property Choice on the internet, identified a couple of properties and emailed Sharon and Steve.

Their reply was prompt and included an offer to talk over the phone as we were then living in Hong Kong.

Sharon telephoned me at the agreed time, asked pertinent questions regarding our requirements and promised to come back to me with a list of properties to make our 'dream home' come true!

I was already impressed by the professionalism when 2 other things sealed our confidence in their company:

1: They only deal with 'fully' legal and documented properties.

2: They talked me out of a much more expensive choice as, with their experience, knew it wouldn't meet our requirements.

We finally arrived in Spain where Sharon and Steve had arranged accommodation for us to stay during our visit and a number of properties to view. To ensure they knew what we wanted the first day of viewing was used to discount and refine the selections. On the second day they showed us a villa meeting all the requirements.

In addition to negotiating the price (we achieved a 15% reduction) they also helped finding a solicitor, arranging Spanish bank accounts and even an NIE number (Spanish Tax number) to ensure the purchase went without a hitch, 6 weeks later the property was ours. Electricity, Gas and Government Rates were set up on a standing order and we enjoyed our first taste of 'Spanish living' 2 months later.

On arriving the great service continued with Steve and Sharon helping us to adjust to Spanish living and directing us to useful shops etc. This is a great company run by a great family. I will have no hesitation in recommending them or using them again.

Good luck and put your trust in Steve and Sharon to find your dream home too. You will not be disappointed!

Regards Phil and Jan Hayman, Almalajejo, Huercal Overa.                                                                                          THIS IS THE BEAUTIFUL VILLA PURCHASED BY PHIL & JAN who now kindly allow us to use as a stock picture.

Since purchasing this beautiful property Phil & Jan went on to purchase a large English supermarket through Spanish Property Choice and are now the proud owners of the very successful PRICE BUSTERS SUPERMARKET located in Albox. So if you are looking for some home creature comforts you will find them there............

Spanish Property Choice - David and Barbara Parker

When we decided to leave the UK and buy a home in Spain we were naturally a little apprehensive about the move to a new country and a new life with everything different from anything we knew.

Experience of Estate agents in the UK is limited but the dealings we have had over the years has been unhelpful and left us unimpressed by their attitude, therefore we were not expecting much more from the agents in Spain.

How wrong we were, from the minute we walked into the office of SPC in Mojacar we met Emma who was professional, courteous, respectful and very helpful, we had done our research in UK but Emma spelt out things right from the start in a very clear way. Steven showed us around a number of properties and was just great and full of information about the areas and homes etc making it and enjoyable experience. Nothing was to much trouble for either of them or the rest of the staff in the office. We went to notary and Steven came with us explaining all that was going to happen and what to expect.

Once we were in our home we thought we would be on our own but SPC have been there for us, through all sorts of questions and help that we required over the last few weeks. They went out of their way to help us and continue to do so. To be honest we could not recommend them highly enough, with the consideration they have shown to us and the thoughtfulness in how they deal with people in general, the UK agents we have dealt with could certainly learn a lot from SPC.

Hilary and Graham Thompson Mojacar. Having just returned home from completing the deal on our apartment in Mojacar Playa I felt compelled to write to thank you for all your help and excellent service. 

It makes a real change to find a company who actually took the time to listen to what we were looking for and match us up to likely properties. You’d think it was the obvious way  to operate an estate agency - but apparently it’s not.

I am impressed at how efficient the service is and how much we benefited from your  advice and guidance, not just with the property itself, but also with the technicalities and legalities of purchasing in a foreign country. You have obviously thought deeply about   what is important to a purchaser and modelled your service on that.

We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone thinking of purchasing in the area as we, ourselves, were advised to approach you by one of your previous customers. After all there can be no better endorsement than personal recommendation.

Thanks once again for all your help. Obviously if anyone wishes for verification of the authentication of this testimonial I'm happy for you to pass on our details.                                                             

Yours sincerely, Hilary & Grahame Thompson from Hull, East Yorkshire.

Dear Steve & Sharon,

Thank you for all the time you gave us in discussing and seeing various properties in the Mojacar area. Your professionalism and expertise, with an abundance of common sense and humour, were refreshing as well as your knowledge of the Spanish property market. You knew what we were looking for better than we did ourselves, “that is a real skill!!” There were a couple of properties in which we were particularly interested in (Steve might have noticed a tear in my eye!) and as soon as we are in a position to proceed we will be in touch and we are sure you will find something we love. Those people who were in their villas welcomed Steve like an old friend, which says much for him personally but also for the regard that these people have for Spanish Property Choice.

Meanwhile Good Luck to Emma on the upcoming event, we will remember her when our Lucy's time comes. Hope Shaun had a great birthday.

Our Best Regards

Hugh & Helen Larkin

Muchas personas sueñan con vivir frente al mar. Yo lo he conseguido gracias a Spanish Property Choice, concretamente gracias a su empleada Coralie.

Tras comentar mis preferencias, ella se encargo de buscar el apartamento que me pudiera gustar y ponernos de acuerdo entre comprador y vendedor para poder hacer realidad nuestros deseos. Se encargo de todo y yo sólo tuve que encargarme de hablar con ella, hasta que la compraventa se realizó sin ningún problema.

MR AND MRS KEEN ARBOLEAS 2012

                                                                    

After deciding to sell our villa in  Arboleas early 2012 we gave our family a last chance to visit during the summer and came up with a plan to sell. We chose Spanish Property to market our property because they appeared to be the most forward looking and proactive agent, leading the pack with regard to marketing and their general approach to selling.

Although we were nervous making the decision, we chose the 2% commission package with 1% being paid upfront to fund the advertising campaign. Stephen met with us at the villa and, having agreed the selling price, we signed up with SPC on 21st May 2012.

From then on it was in their very professional hands, the marketing was superb, Stephen only brought us viewers that were looking for properties of our type and looking in the right price range, he always arrived on time and escorted each one personally pointing out the advantages of our villa. We accepted an offer in early July which culminated in our sale completion at the end of September.

During this period Stephen again fully supported the process acting as intermediary between us and the buyers ensuring everyone was happy. The complete family team that make up SPC staff are a pleasure to deal with and we would have no hesitation in recommending Spanish Property Choice to anyone selling or buying in the Mojacar/Albox area.

To whom it may concern,

Currencies Direct have been working in partnership with Spanish Property Choice since their formation in the summer of 2007, offering a tailored foreign currency exchange solution to their client base.

We have worked closely with their respective staff and clients and the feedback from their clients always shows an organisation that offers an outstanding, first class service.

No detail is too small and they hold their clients hand from first viewing/valuation through to the completion of the purchase/sale, taking away the worry of the process for their clients and thus offering complete peace of mind whether a client is buying or selling.

The clients love the personal service that Spanish Property Choice offer.

We know that Steve and Sharon have been selling property in the Almeria area for many years, but as the market leading estate agent of their area, we know from our own working relationship, that they are always looking at improving the client experience and enhancing both the pre and after sales solutions.

We are consistently impressed by the Spanish Property Choice team professionalism, integrity and their endeavour to always go that extra mile for their clients.

We have known the Spanish Property Choice staff and proprietors Stephen and Sharon for 6 years and have always found them to be professional in all aspect of their business.

They have a much admired reputable approach to the Decree 218 and have used our services as a professional solicitor on many occasions, to not only help their clients/vendors comply with the paperwork required to sell their properties, but to also ensure their purchasers can buy a fully legal property.

Spanish Property Choice offer a fresh approach to property sales and lettings and myself and corporate partners would recommend their services to anyone wishing to buy or sell a property in Spain. Lovely family business. Anglea Morales, Mojacar Playa. (Tel: 0034 950 478 984)

When we started looking to purchase a property in Spain Spanish Property Choice were recommended to us by friends.
 
We found all staff to be friendly and knowledgeable. Special mention and our thanks has to go to Emma who always answered our emails promptly and kept us up to date with what was happening while we were negotiating the sale she worked tirelessly to help us achieve our dream of owning a property in Andalusia.
 
They have an extensive list of contacts available who can help with the legalities and gave us information and recommendations.
 
On completion day all was dealt with smoothly and professionally and we received an email as soon as the sale had gone through.
 
We were delighted with the service received and have already recommended Spanish Property Choice to friends wishing to purchase in this beautiful area of Spain.

Hi Emma
 
Thank you so much for your prompt response.
 
We are certainly looking for a project to take on, but I think that the underpinning for the house would be a step too far for us.
 
Just to check would the 20,000 Euros estimate include the underpinning, Kitchen, bathrooms and connection to water and electricity?
 
Currently we are looking for a property "away from it all" somewhere private, ideally with land (preferably over 2,000sq M). It does need to be detached, and away from other properties. We would love to take on a project, but as we will be continuing to work and live in the UK for the next 8 years or so, until we can afford to live in Spain full time, we need something with at least walls, a roof and in a perfect world windows.
 
We have 3 children, so in a perfect world the house would have 3 bedrooms, but we could maybe work out a plan if the property only had 2 but had room for extension.
 
Our budget is only small, around 60,000 Euros is the very top - our ideal would be 45,000 really.
 
Please let me know as and when you see properties that might suit - and I just wanted to let you know that I think your website is definitely the very best we have seen so far - very detailed and very clear!
 
Thanks again
 
Alex

Dear Sharon and Stephen,

                Spanish property choice, well where do we begin? We have been engaged in viewing their website from our home in far off Australia for the last eight months and have had e mail contact with them during that time.

During this time we developed a friendship with the family and the staff in the office albeit electronically.

                                                                                                                                                                              Once we had bedded in to our rental the first place we headed for was the office of Spanish Property Choice. We were warmly welcomed and felt immediately at home and seem to be amongst friends rather than business contacts.

Stephen took us out and about to see various properties and intuitively recognized our needs and wants property wise and saved us a lot of time steering us away from properties we wanted to see as he knew they were not suitable.

Very quickly we found our perfect home,made a quick decision and subsequently our offer was accepted. Sharon seemed to know this was the home for us before we even saw it.

The support systems afforded to us since we have purchased our home is second to none, we have acquired brilliant tradesmen through their recommendations and to be honest this company is more than just an estate agency .

Thank you so much everyone in the office, Coral lee and Tamara helping us with translation, also Shaun and Emma for making phone calls on our behalf.

We can't even go into mojacar now without a call into the office to say hello, thank you all for making our home purchase so pleasant.

Kind regards

Gibb and Annie Todd. 9/7/2013

My husband & I recently sold our Spanish property through Spanish Property Choice.

I was very pleased with the help and advice we received from their sales manager

Emma.  It was a somewhat complicated procedure at times, mainly because my

husband and I are separated and I now live in the U.K.   Emma was patient,

polite and totally professional throughout the entire sale, made telephone calls

to the solicitor when needed to, and nothing was too much trouble for her.

She diligently made sure things went smoothly right through to completion of

the sale of the property.  I am very grateful to Emma.  I would certainly recommend

It was a pleasure meeting you both, an extremely refreshing experience, to have an agency take time over the customers needs and then the patience, controlled calmness and knowledge that Stephen has, WOW, had a massive impact! Thank you once again, both. It was indeed our pleasure to meet you.
 
Best regards
Imtiaz and Corinne

We just wanted to say thank you to the all Sales team at Spanish Property Choice in Mojacar. 

When we decided to sell our villa, we put the property up for sale with several agents.  Spanish Property Choice offered us a special sale deal whereby we could pay 1% of the sale price in advance with a further 1% payable upon completion, rather than paying the usual, larger percentage other agents offer.

It was a bit of a gamble but it worked for us.

When Steve brought viewers to our property, he was enthusiastic about the place resulting in our buyers offering a very acceptable offer.  It was so quick.  The following day we all signed the contract, solicitors were instructed and a completion date arranged.

Needless to say, we were pleased that we only had to pay the pre-arranged balance of 1% at Notary.  We are very satisfied clients who can recommend Spanish Properties to other vendors.

Taken from a local forum - Review on our Kisacar Rental company through Spanish Property Choice.

Just used this company for the first time, picking up a car at Almeria airport. You can book through SPC near the roundabout at the Commercial Centre in Mojacar, or via the web-site at www.kisacar.com


They don't have an office, they meet you in the public car park. No pre-paid full tank scam. They take an additional €100 which is refunded if you return the car with the same amount of fuel as when you collected the car. There is a €600 damage excess, but this is not charged or held against your credit card.

The chap delivering the car took great pains to walk round the car with me, pointing out any little scrapes, so no arguments on return. He also took the time to explain in detail how the 'keyless' fob worked, which is more than most companies do.


The car itself is perhaps a bit older than normal - slightly over 4 years old, but in immaculate condition.
So, perhaps at last there is an alternative to the dreaded Goldcar. 
And before anyone starts the 'vested interest' sniping [perhaps I've been on the forum too long], I have no connections whatsoever with the company in question!!

SPC notification - please note Kiscar do have an office in Almeria city, however they will meet you at your chosen destination or at our offices in Mojacar of course. Thank you for your kind comments Alfie.

If you are looking to rent a car please call 0034 950 615 388 for a quote from Coralie.

Hi SPC,

Property now sold, so you can remove me from your mailing list. Thank you for all your help - it was not sold through you, but you are by far the most professional organisation in that area. Good luck with your business in the future.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the staff at Spanish Property Choice for all of their help in the recent purchase of our property in Mojacar. We found a very professional and friendly approach by Emma and Matt Fowler from Spanish Property Choice, to our property purchase. The whole buying experience was very straight forward and every assistance was given to us by them to make it as least stressful as possible, keeping us informed every step of the way.
In the past my wife and myself have also rented an apartment in Mojacar managed by Spanish Property Choice which we were also delighted with, again the rental staff headed by Tamara were always very friendly, helpful and most of all, again, very professional.
In property matters in and around Mojacar area I would not hesitate in consulting with the staff at Spanish Property Choice before any one else, there local knowledge and customer care is excellent.

Dear Emma

We could write a book on our experience with you.

We can't begin to tell you how wonderful, professional you and your whole
family have been. Before, during and after the sale it was everything we hope
it would be and more.


Anytime anyone wants to contact us to hear straight from the horses mouth
so to speak you can give them our email.
Your company is the sort of company we would recommend and cannot
speak highly enough.

We decided the Mojacar area was where we wanted to retire after holidaying in Spain over the past years.
Before making the move we made enquiries and found Spanish Property Choice.  A local family run estate agent with whom we arranged visits to various properties on their web site.
 
Everything was arranged before we arrived and were shown exactly what we asked to see, no sales push or time wasting showing us other properties.
We returned to England, we contacted Spanish Property Choice and made an offer on a villa, after being agreed everything went through smoothly and efficiently.  We did not even return to Spain for signing etc.  They gave a fully comprehensive professional service full of advice keeping us in touch and up to date with events.
 
Nothing was too much trouble even after the sale they are still willling to give help and advice.
We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Spanish Property Choice certainly a 5 star and 10 out of 10 service.

Dear Emma

Re our new purchase in Mojacar Playa, on behalf of Tony and Myself we would like to take this opportunity to thank you and everyone at Spanish Property Choice for all your help throughout the complete process.

It was a new venture for us, buying in Spain, and we were very apprehensive given all the bad press in London. From day one when we contacted you we were impressed with the level of contact and time you took in sourcing properties for us to veiw on our short trips over.

You found us an amazing property which suits our requirements fully. 

You also guided us through the mindfield of legals in Spain, providing us with an excellent English speaking Solictor (Angela Morales) who I would also highly recommend, through to banks for accounts and general knowledge of the area with details for contractors who can assist us with various jobs.

I would recommend that any one considering buying or renting a property in this region of Spain contact Spanish Property Choice in the first instance for a profesional and personal service that you would expect from a family business.

If you do have any clients that are unsure I am happy for you to give out my e mail for a direct reference.

Thank you again for everything and we look forward to catching up next time we are over.

Steve and Tony Downey

Hi Emma, I hope you, Matt, Alicia and of course beautiful Lucas are doing well.

Spanish Property Choice were very friendly, helpful and professional when we bought our property through them.
They went out of their way to give us any information we needed, not just with the purchase, but with other queries we had such as schools, buses etc.

Both Emma and Coralie were particularly helpful and always made the time to talk to me and reassure me when I had any worries.

If I ever sold my property it would definitely be through Spanish Property Choice. 
Best wishes Jane.
