Stephen and Sharon Garner: Directors and owners of Spanish Property Choice

Stephen's Email: coastal@spanishpropertychoice.com

Sharon's Email: country@spanishpropertychoice.com

Stephen and Sharon head this wonderful family business and pride themselves on developing a long established company affording true family values. Stephen and Sharon moved to Costa Almería, Andalucía, Spain from the UK to start a new chapter with their 2 children Emma and Shaun, who also work along side their parents to develop and support them in offering a service second to none selling villas, apartments, cortijo's, farmhouses, townhouses, Spanish traditional village houses and park homes. When Stephen and Sharon moved to this beautiful province of Costa Almería, their original intention was to semi retire. Their son Shaun attended a Spanish public school and Emma found employment initially for a Spanish recreational company. However after a very short period of time, Stephen and Sharon were head hunted by a Spanish Property Developer in Olula del Río who saw potential in the historical experience they both had to offer the Spanish Real Estate Market and consequently they opened their first office predominantly selling old farmhouses, cave houses and traditional Spanish village houses that were full of charm and character. A few years later another opportunity presented itself and they were excited by what they call a niche in the market for them to develop a Real Estate agency based on their own background and which would eventually work very similar to the UK real estate industry.

The Spanish market was developing quickly and Stephen and Sharon felt they had acquired by this point, many years of experience within the Spanish real estate sector. This complimented their UK background and they also offered a profound knowledge of corporate development and had by now after many years gained respect within the Spanish local industry, which inevitably with this motivated driven couple, enabled them to open their own business located on Mojacar Playa, Costa Almería, Andalucía.

Spanish Property Choice have now after many years of trading successfully developed into Mojacars leading Real Estate Agency, with 2 offices in Mojacar and an inland office located in Albox. The SPC team lead the market for Inland and Coastal re-sale properties.

Always striving to be ahead of the market to offer their vendors the best opportunity to achieve a quick and efficient sale and their purchasers a supported structured, legal and a safe purchase, they have now secured a strap line befitting and well earned by this company - OUR REPUTATION IS YOUR GUARANTEE Their reputation secured them an amazing opportunity in 2015 as they were chosen as one of only 2 agents to feature on Channel4 Sun Sea and Selling Houses. Now with 45 x 1 hour episodes on Channel4, this family business are now a household name and have without doubt put Costa Almeria on the map.

Stephen and Sharon's daughter and son eventually secured jobs working together in a local insurance agency in Albox and Mojacar, however they both decided after 3 years of working there, that they were needed to help and develop their parents ever expanding business, so joined the team and are now playing a key role in development of this great family business.

So whach this space folks :)

Stephen and Sharon are always looking for new ways of securing a great deal for all of their clients, visiting far off countries to secure affiliated partnerships, for example Hong Kong, Beijing, Dubai and the UK in the first quarter of 2012 alone just as a general guide.
