Bryn & Lisa Sage
We would just like to say a big thank you to Shaun, yourself and Everyone at Spanish Property Choice for all the hard work and assistance put in to help us buy our delightful apartment in Pueblo Laguna, we are absolutely thrilled with it.
From understanding our requirements following a brief conversation, to giving us a challenging short list (which included THE prefect home for us) and then helping us through to us getting the keys, is an customer service experience we feel is second to none.
Shaun’s preparation, the way he presented himself and his genuine concern in making sure we saw what was right for us made him stand out as amongst the agents we used when viewing properties.
In addition the other organisations and local traders you introduced us to have also been great – thank you!!
8 weeks from you getting our brief to us getting the keys and sitting in the Sun. Well done.
We would not hesitate to recommend Spanish Property Choice to anyone looking to buy a property in Spain, and hopefully it will be a long time in the future but we know who we would choose to sell ours.
All the best Bryn and Lisa

Hi Val. Myself and Keith are back in the UK. We have decided Albox and the surrounding area is not for us, too remote and not enough amenities. We want to say thank you for at short notice arranging a viewing with Andrew, the Villa was fab but it was too cold, windy and remote. Can I say how well Sharon and Stephen have chose their staff, not only did you both at the Albox Office look after us, we also had a lovely reception at Mojacar Office, we very much liked the Mojacar area. Because both offices allowed us a viewing we got more of an idea what we may be looking for.
We aim to get one of our properties on the market next year so we can achieve our aim of relocating.
We can't emphasise enough how grateful we are for Spanish Property Choice Staff at both Albox and Mojacar offices for their time and help. Mojacar was beautiful.
I will say how impressed we were at Sharon's honesty on the weather we would experience up the mountains we were looking at, awful! What a lovely family. They obviously select their staff as they are themselves, honest, hardworking, helpful and lovely. Please thank everyone who helped us on our behalf.
They are very professional and very helpful, in April 2019 we will be on our second rental property with them for a year this time and looking forward to it very much. They are lovely people.
Charles & Janice Brown
We would like to thank you and your staff for your assistance with the recent sale of our property in Spain.
The process was handled very professionally and efficiently and we achieved a fair price for our villa.
We were kept informed regarding viewings etc at all stages, so we knew at all times exactly what was going on. You explained the legal process very well from the onset, and the solicitor you recommended handled everything extremely well.
Thanks again for all your help, and we wish you and your family all the best for the future,
Charles & Janice Brown

Hi, firstly I haven’t bought a house with you! But love watching your lovely family on TV here in the U.K. and seeing all the hard work you put into finding the right property for people. Your understanding of what people want and delivering are not an easy task but you do this with empathy and professionalism. One day I hope to meet you to do the same for me. Love your sense of humour and hope a third series will be on the way.
Kind Regards Christine

SPC were to me the clear first choice of estate agencies to engage when I decided to put my Turre apartment on to the market for sale. The t.v. show has clearly helped put the Costa Almeria area on the map particularly where prospective purchasers from the United Kingdom are concerned. I dealt mainly with Emma and Kim at the Mojacar Playa office. From the start I was given help with obtaining necessary documentation and throughout the process they have been attentive and quick to respond to any questions or communications I have raised. They arranged a colleague to come and take photographs of the property for the website. They made sure the apartment was professionally presented and kept me updated with viewings and observations made by prospective purchasers. The Garner family are fortunate to have both Emma Fowler and Kim Robinson on their team and it has come as no surprise to me that the company has flourished to the extent that it has. These are great team of people and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others, both vendors and purchasers.

SPC helped us sell my Dads villa earlier this year, in what were very difficult circumstances. They listened to us, advised us and really made a bad situation into a positive. We were over the moon that the villa sold so quickly and truly we couldn’t thank them enough for all their help and understanding. Thank you again guys.

We purchased our holiday home through SPC and were very pleased with the service we received. They were professional throughout the process and gave us complete confidence. The tv program is a true reflection of this friendly and helpful family run business.
Steve & Tony Downey
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 professional 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.

So having moved to Spain we retouched base with SPC to not only rent a property whilst looking for a property to buy, but to also look to purchase a property from them. Well what can I say excellent time looking at properties, and although we gave them a brief on what we were looking for, being as experienced as they are they knew what we really wanted before we did. Did they come up with the goods OMG hit the nail on the head and we found our perfect property. We are already receiving after care and not even got the keys yet????? A massive thank you to the Garners, their extended sales team and the rental team we could not of done any of this without you absolutely brilliant thank you thank you soooooo much xx

Thanks to Andy for help and prompt responses to all of our questions prior to our recent visit to Mojacar, also thanks to Robert for his patience and professional attitude towards us when viewing a property recently, his knowledge of the property and local area was exceptional and we didn’t feel any sales pressure at all which was great! We have now decided to opt for long term rental rather than buying for the time being and are looking forward to continued outstanding service from SPC!
Sean, Sharon and Steve all same initials. SG. Super great!
In this day and age it's a real pleasure to see real people and family enjoying life and just spending as much time together as possible. Your pure enjoyment of being together spills out into your business making you a truly caring choice!

Big thank you to Robert
Had a fabulous time visiting 3 properties yesterday with Robert. Was good to be able to chat to someone who had been through the same experience and we will be keeping in touch as we continue with our search. We also met Shaun, Andy and Steve at the Albox office, all were so lovely and friendly. We’ll be returning to Spain in 3 weeks to continue our search and we have every confidence that Robert, along with the rest of the SPC team will find us our dream Property. Once again, thanks to Robert for taking time to answer our questions and also sharing his knowledge of the area. Marie
Heidi - Trustpilot review
What a fantastic time property viewing with Rob. Sense of humor, nothing was too much and he gave us answers to all our questions even if he didn’t have the answer there and then it was no trouble for him to find out. We visited the Huercal-Overa office and the Albox office and the other staff members we met were absolutely lovely. We did visit Mojacar but stayed clear of the office it was very clear that TV attracts a lot of people to this place, which isn’t a bad thing, just not our cup of tea! However to be honest it was better that we were in an office were we could hear ourselves chat and it was a lot calmer. Would recommend the other two offices to people who want it a bit quieter. Also can’t forget Emma who was our fist point of contact she was also amazing arranging our first set of property visits. Amazing family unit as a whole and I don’t mean just the Garners the whole team we met. Keep it up guys will be back soon hopefully ready to offer and sign. Heidi

We recently purchased a lovely 2 bedroomed house near Mojacar through Spanish Property Choice. We had a great day looking at properties with Robert and then Sharon helped us get the property we chose. After watching the TV programme we can honestly say that what you see is what you get, the family are so lovely and true professionals. The after sales service has also been fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. The whole experience with this company has been great and would highly recommend them to anyone. Great to meet Sharon, Emma and the team :)

A dream waiting to happen
It is my husband and mine’s life time wish to own a property in Spain and the more we watch your show, the more we look forward to our dream. From watching all the shows I feel that I have got to know you all espesially as we all come from the same neck of the woods (we are from Dudley).As soon as our finances are sorted we will be over to see you like a shot. I am regularly on your website looking to see what’s available and hopefully in the next 12-18 months we should be out to see you so you can sell us our dream with the care, love, laughter and thought that you bestow on your clients.
See you soon Hilary Roberts
The bubbly personality of Sharon and her family ❤
Found us the perfect house, no fuss, no drama just perfection in every way.
Fantastic, honest people who go out of their way to make your experience special.
I just love them through watching their TV program. They are a very special orientated family, very professional and friendly in what they do. And if I were looking for a property, I would definitely choose the Garners Family!
They are so in tune and friendly with all the buyers and are so welcoming. Also they are very happy people.
They are such lovely people so friendly and helpful.
Sharon, Steve, Shaun and the whole company always appear to care. They seem to genuinely like the prospective purchasers and go the extra mile. The dynamic of the team comes across as very professional, efficient, effective but also fun. We have said both throughout the last series and this, that if we are ever in a position to buy or even decide to rent for a while, we will definitely be in touch with Spanish Property Choice ! Roll on series 3!
Clearly love their job and know what clients want - they are friendly and not at all pushy!
Can't wait for this lovely family business to find our forever home in 2019. X
Recommended, genuine brummy people who want the best for their clients.
Well with all the great things said about this company, me and the old man will be visiting them soon so they can find us our forever home xxx See you soon guys and keep up the great work.
We are on journey looking for a second home in Spain. The Garners are very helpful and informative. 5 stars.

Excellent customer service. I have been corresponding with Sharon for a while now and she has always been extremely friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to finally meet her at Olympia back in May.
A friendly and professional family business who look after their clients by helping them find their holiday / forever homes.
Fabulous, good at what do, they seem to know what is wanted. Love the show well done.
Yes I would recommend Spanish Property Choice...because they are professional in the way they deal with clients. Speaking from experience and hopefully in the process of moving Almeria, SPC will find us our dream property in Spain.
Love this program. It’s the best thing to watch on the TV right now, the Garners deal with everything thrown at them in a very calm and professional way. If I were ever lucky enough to be able to buy a property in Spain, I would be on their doorstep immediately. Keep it up guys xx

By watching the show you can just tell how professional and friendly the Garners are. They would be who I went to if I ever bought or rented property out there.
Very professional people who are guaranteed to find your dream! Truly friendly attitude, they make you feel a part of their own family.
They have a warm and friendly manner and totally understand their clients needs and wants and try their best to meet them.
Absolutely love the Garners.
Very professional yet friendly family run business, know exactly what property will suit you, hope to see them soon.
Love their friendly open approach when working alongside their clients to find them a perfect home. Also the website is excellent the only one I've seen that clearly shows all fees and extra costs that will be imposed when buying a property.
Fantastic advice and commitment in helping us find our dream property in Spain - nothing is too much trouble! Professional, friendly and genuine - love the Garners.
Very professional, friendly and extremely helpful. Would recommend them to anyone!!
Absolutely love this show. As it is our aim to buy in Spain as soon as it's possible for us I will only go to Spanish Property Choice to find us our perfect home.
Helpful estate agents. Very friendly.
They know the market and steer people into the right property for them.

We are very grateful to Spanish Property Choice; we looked at various estate agents without any luck. Suddenly we saw the sign and walked in tirelessly. They hunted down properties to our criteria and eventually found us the perfect place.
The staff are lovely and easy to talk to, they are full of information about everything you want to know, they even gave us a post box number for all our mail, they also arranged a rental property for us while we waited for our place to be ready, stress free and no worries, love to them all, you will too, and so thank you Spanish Property Choice.......Well done !!
James Gray just left a new 5-star review of Spanish Property Choice - The Garners of Sun Sea and Selling Houses:
I have rented long-term apartments in Palomares, Almeria through Spanish Property Choice for the past two years. Without hesitation or reservation, I highly recommend this property company because they carry out all aspects of their business in a most professional manner. As a family run enterprise you are always treated to friendly service and excellent attention to detail. The range of properties offered for sale or rental are second to none in Almeria. Next year I will be using Spanish Property Choice once again to rent a long-term apartment for approx six months. I would also like to take this opportunity to offer my special thanks to the rental's manager Juanma, for his patience and understanding when locating apartments on my behalf in order to meet my personal exacting search criteria. 5*****

From Suzy & David Handley
Spanish Property Choice have a large and in my opinion the best selection of properties for sale in Almeria province; coupled with an extensive knowledge of the area, professionalism and helpfulness, look no further for a fab agency . We met most of the team but it was Shaun who we mainly dealt with. Shaun fully understood our needs and wishes and suggested suitable properties to view. He accompanied us on the viewings and gave us information about the properties and the area; in fact anything we asked he knew! We chose the property for us and Shaun guided us through the initial offer stage right up to completion. He kept us informed all along the way and always answered our emails and calls promptly. Spanish Property Choice made the whole process of buying so easy. A huge thank you to Shaun for making our new life in the sun a reality.
Suzy and David, Cuevas del Almanzora.
Thank you very much for all you did for me on the sale of my apartment. I found Shaun & you so helpful & if I know anyone who wishes to purchase a property in Mojacar & the surrounding area I would definitely send them your way.
Thanks so much again
We've had our property just over a year now and still we pop in to see Emma and Shaun and still they have time to have a chat. I met all the new gang today, nothing is too much trouble for these guys even after you find your home away from home.
Absolutely lovely family. Thank you for your kind advice today Sharon. It was lovely to meet you. I’ve posted some pics of my new apartment and the one of us today. Safe trip home back to the sun.

Hello to all the lovely team at Spanish Property Choice. Steve and I would like to thank you for all the help and advice you have given us about buying a home in Mojacar. The process has been really smooth and we are now the proud owners of a duplex town house in Mojacar Playa, we are on top of the world right now. You are such a lovely family with a wealth of knowledge and we will be recommending you to all our family and friends. We cant wait to collect our keys hopefully in early May and meet our new friends again, thank you so very much Toni and Steve.
Janet & Adrian Collings
"We chose Spanish Property Choice because we had visited their office a couple of times before putting the house on the market and were impressed by their professional approach and the amount of practical information we were given. This enabled us to gather together all the paperwork we needed in advance thus making the process much easier. We also felt that we were given realistic advice about pricing and marketing. To our delight, we had purchasers within a short period of time and when this unexpectedly fell through, Emma went out of her way to find us new buyers quickly. Second time around all went smoothly. Emma guided us through the whole process, always responding promptly and fully to our queries and making the whole process as stress free as possible. We would definitely recommend SPC to anyone planning to sell their property in the Mojacar area."
Andy & Jackie Woodland
I started my property search on the Spanish Property Choice website which was easy to navigate and plenty of filters to narrow down the search. I then contacted the team via email and was really pleased with the quick response and some really helpful advice. I selected a few properties that caught my eye and emailed them to the Spanish Property Choice team. This gave them an idea of the type of properties I was looking for, the location and the budget I had to spend.
Several months later I arrived in Spain with an appointment already set up to meet the team who had already selected some suitable properties for me to view. The team could not have been more helpful both in the office and also on the site visits. I am now in a position of knowing what type of property I want and in which area at the price I can afford. I just need to plan my next visit after I have sorted out my finances.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Spanish Property Choice to anyone looking to purchase or rent a property in the Costa Almeria area.
Thanks again Emma for all your hard work

Me & Karen would like to say a big thank you for all the hard work you have done for us in making our dream of owning a Spanish property a reality.
From the first email contact to picking the keys up everything has gone to plan.
We were always made to feel very welcome by everyone in your office & I am sure whenever we are passing we will call in & say hello.
We would also like to thank Matt for showing us around the properties we were interested in with no sale pressure just honest helpful advice.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Spanish Property Choice to anyone thinking of buying in your area.

The whole team at Spanish Properties Choices
We had seen Sharon & Steve at a large Exhibition in London and decided to contact them to help us with our move to Spain, this was a huge decision for us and to be honest very scary you read so many horror stories however, we needn’t of worried with Spanish Choices, Emma and the whole team were wonderful from finding us a number of properties to view keeping to our very specific requirements and finding us our dream home, Sharon, Steve, Emma, Sean, George & Matt you guys are a dream team that made the whole process painless and stress free, from Solicitors, to money transfers, bank account, NIE this was all taken care of.
They check out every property before they market it to ensure that all the legal side is in order, and from putting in our offer and acceptance the whole process was straight forward and pain free,
Emma was always on hand whenever you needed her for whatever reason, that may have been from finding a local doctor, taxis anything she could help with she did.
If you are looking for an Agent in Spain that you can trust Spanish Property Choice every time you could not get any better they go above and beyond the call of duty and we would trust them 200%.
Thank you all

Thanks again to a wonderful team!

We have now been in our new home in Arboleas for just over five weeks. Its been surprisingly easy to settle in because everybody we meet is so nice. Not least among them are the people at Spanish Property Choice, who introduced us to our beautiful house. They are quite a bit different from the estate agents we expats are used to in the UK. We found them not to be pushy in any way and their only concern was that we were totally sure that the house we chose was genuinely the right fit for us. Loads of advice about the area on tap, and not just about buying properties. We couldn't be happier with every aspect of our dealings with Emma and Matt.

Excellent service from all the team at Spanish Property Choice. Kept in good contact with us throughout the sale of our apartment. We would definitely use them again.
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.
Emma was 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.
Matt's knowledge and help is very useful for anyone wanting a long term let.
IVAN left a 5-star review of Spanish Property Choice - The Garners of Sun Sea and Selling Houses:
We have had an excellent experience with Spanish Property Choice. We contacted them in advance in regards to the properties to which we wished to view there was no hard sell and Matt who showed us around was able to answer all relevant questions if not he went away to find out. We sourced a property and was able to make offer on the same day they were able to recommend legals and the sale went through without any problems in the timescales agreed. If you are looking for an estate agent to help you find your ideal property then you can't go wrong with Spanish Property Choice. Highly recommended.
We’ve been looking for a property in Spain for about 2 years starting up afar north of Costa Brava down as far south as Mojácar and everywhere in between! We dealt with Spanish Inmobiliaria’s , fellas working out of the back of a car! English speaking Spanish , French , Dutch, Germany the lot ! We have of course watched the show, but being in it was a defiantly out of the question! Finding Three properties we liked I filled out an enquiry form from the website, within 2 minutes my phone rang with Emma introducing herself and making an appointment for our upcoming trip with her husband Matt, friendly, helpful and efficient Wow! Impressive!! We arrived late for our appointment my fault , Emma phoned us to check we were ok , whilst waiting Matt rearranged our appointments we left the office 1/2 an hour late The 1st house was the one & after viewing the others we went back to the office made an offer SUCCESS!! Wow Matt, Val & Steve all helped sort out the contract the owner even popped in the office to sign it ! As I said “Spanish Property Choice - FRIENDLY, HELPFUL & EFFICIENT “ Thanks Matt, Emma, Val & Steve can’t wait to have you all over for a BBQ x

(Our first clients of filmed for Channel4 Sun Sea and Selling Houses)
Just wanted to say a massive 'thank you' to you all at SPC for making what we had thought would be a really difficult procedure go really smoothly.
We were made to feel totally at ease and that no question was a silly question, SPC held our hands for the time we were out there viewing, with personal introductions to our chosen bank, solicitor and currency exchange provider. It was a whirlwind 2 days but you and your parents guided us through, we flew home still in shock at what had been achieved 48 hours. Don't think we'll ever have that same experience viewing property ever again, we laughed all day!
Sharon listened to what we asked for on that first accidental meeting in the street and somehow made us look outside 'our box' and found us what was perfect!
Must also mention the lovely Begoña who kept us entertained at the Notarè office, and explained and translated, with great humour! Equally top notch service from all at AM&RG solicitors.
Can't wait to get out for our keys and look forward to many years of popping our heads round your door to say hello!
Many many thanks

From the first viewings to the actual moving into our dream home Spanish Property Choice were knowledgeable, supportive and above all a friendly family business.
Having sold properties from their premises in Mojacar Playa for ten years Spanish Property Choice has an impressive network of businesses to help us and you through the labyrinth of do's and don'ts when making a permanent move to Spain, including Solicitors, Currency Transfer experts and even which garages give a good deal if you need a car!
One member of the Garner family must stand out for us and that is Emma Fowler Office Manager for Spanish Property Choice. From our very first day in Spain Emma has done everything possible to make sure we know what we have to do, where we have to go and even on two occasions taking us there!
Our heartfelt thanks Emma.

5-star Trustpilot review of Spanish Property Choice - The Garners of Sun Sea and Selling Houses:
Met with Robert in Albox office, Top Man he was Fantastic Professional and ticked all the boxes. Thank you Robert will be in touch very soon. Thank you
Thanks for all your help as part of the team in completing the sale of are property. I have to say you made the transaction as easy as possible.
Thanks again Alan and Jayne Malins
I used SPC to purchase a property in Mojacar Playa, and could not have wished for a more professional, friendly and attentive service. At no time did I feel pressurised
I felt that nothing was too much trouble for them. From the moment I contacted them they offered advice as to the best way to reach Mojacar from Torrevieja, providing me with public transport routes and times.
It is truly a family run business, over the course of the four days that I spent finding and purchasing a property, I met nearly every member of the family except one who was busy looking after a recent, new addition to the family.
I felt they spent time listening to my requirements and selected properties that were both suitable and within my budget, they were at my disposal to visit my preferred property as many times as I needed.
Being a newbie to overseas property purchasing and fairly nervous (having read numerous on-line horror stories) they explained the whole process to me clearly and patiently, answering any questions I threw at them .
They introduced me to an excellent, English speaking, conveyancing Solicitor and foreign currency exchange provider. I had done some on-line research and gleaned that it was not advisable to use a Solicitor recommended by an estate agent, but my dealings with SPC gave me the confidence to trust their recommendations. They handled the price negotiations fairly and provided me with instant updates
SPC offered to provide after-sales advice and guidance on many things, such as the best way to view UK TV and internet advice.
I can honestly say that they provided an excellent service and would have no hesitation in recommending them, from my experience.
To cap it all, SPC refunded the cost of four nights accommodation, as they were the only estate agents that I used to find my property.
It is hard to imagine a better service. All the best for the future SPC, Simon.
We just wanted to say thank you to the all Sales team at Spanish Properties in Mojacar.
When we decided to sell our villa, we put the property up for sale with several agents. Spanish Properties 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 the 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.

Buying our holiday apartment........
At the beginning of 2018 we decided we wanted to buy a 2nd home in Spain. Having watched sun sea and selling houses we decided that we would approach Spanish Property Choice as one of our agents. Best decision we made. Even before we arrived in Spain for our first house hunt they were amazingly helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I can’t praise their professionalism enough, even when we turned up on the wrong day for our viewings they were unfazed and rearranged things to fit us in. Unfortunately we did not find our dream home on this occasion. However, on our second visit in the summer we were more successful. Once Shaun had helped us find the property that we wanted to buy, Emma secured us the perfect deal. They made the whole buying process uncomplicated and put us in touch with all the right people. We have been so happy with SPC that we are using them to manage our winter rental, which again has been handled fabulously. Their service goes way beyond just selling property and I would definitely use them again. Zylpha.

5-star Trustpilot review of Spanish Property Choice - The Garners of Sun Sea and Selling Houses:
We recently started our search for a home in Spain and after being unsuccessful in the Alicante region moved down to Albox to continue our search. We contacted Spanish Property Choice and arranged a day of viewing in the Albox area. As we were in our motorhome Rob came and picked us up and we started our day of viewing. Right from the start Rob was friendly, courteous and helpful. We had a really enjoyable day and could not have asked for more from Rob. We went on to do a second viewing on one of the properties and then was dropped back at our motorhome by Rob. We viewed further properties the following day with another estate agent and at the end of the day knew we were going to put on offer in for the SPC property we saw with Rob. Over the couple of weeks we viewed throughout Spain there was not one estate agents that came near to the professionalisms we experienced from the SPC team. We also met Steve and Emma, and liased with Kim, who were all extremely helpful and informative, I would have no hesitation in recommending Spanish Property Choice and would just add, if you have a day of viewings with Rob, you will have a great day!. Thank you to the SPC team and especially to the lovely Rob!

We called in to see Steve to get some general advice on purchasing a property in Almeria. We were really impressed with how approachable Steve was, he really listened to and understood our concerns and aspirations for our move. His advice was spot on and we will definitely be heading his way once we are ready to make the move.

Hi The Spanish Property Center (The Garners)
We would like to thank your staff for the time and very useful information you gave us when we visited you office last
We did not buy in Costa Almeria but the information we were given by the staff (mum with 2 small children) was great
you had all the time in the world no hard sell just good old fashion friendly help.
We have made a purchase in the La Torre Golf Resort on the Costa Calida, we were given good tips on what to look for and the questions to ask buy your staff.
I would not hesitate to recommend The Garners to anyone looking to buy in Spain, and you never know we could come back down to your coast to be nearer to the sea.
Thank you again until the next time.
Alan & Yvonne Gilhooley
Alan & Marilyn Cousins
Just thought I'd email you to say we're all settled in now in our apartment .
Thank you in all your help in purchasing the property, from first to last you were of great assistance every step of the way.
Also I have to also give special thanks to Tamara who has helped us in moving from the UK last year, finding us somewhere to stay and then finding us somewhere to rent for the past 11 months.
It was a big step for us both but you helped us along every step of the way and your local knowledge is second to none.
We will still pop in as we pass your office every day and you always make us welcome .
So all in all Sharon and Steve you have a fantastic team working for you at Spanish Property Choice and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anybody .
Thanks once again,
Alan and Marilyn Cousins.

When my husband took early retirement last year he was really keen to move to Spain, I on the other hand was quite apprehensive and scared about such a big move . By chance I came across a programme on CH4 called sun, sea and selling houses and up popped The Garners of Spanish Property Choice . After watching the series they came across as really genuine and professional. So we bit the bullet and organised a 3mth rental online through SPC which was straightforward and painless. We arrived in Mojacar in Nov coincidentally the day of their 10th anniversary , to a spotless apartment with stunning sea views. A week later we met the lovely Emma, always cheerful with a smile for everyone. She listened to our needs and helped us narrow down our search. It's important to say that SPC only deal in fully legal properties. Shaun took us on our viewings to a selection of inland and coastal properties. No hard sell here guys , viewings were relaxed enjoyable . After listening to our feedback Shaun instinctively knew which properties weren't for us and he was spot on. He has an amazing knowledge of the market and all the different areas and is just a really nice professional guy. Delighted to say our offer on a property was accepted and we are looking forward to our new life in this beautiful place . Our solicitor organised our NIE numbers and helped us open our bank acc , again all very straightforward. SPC made everything so easy and not half as daunting as you think . Everyone gives 100% including the rental team. I trusted my gut feeling of this company and so glad I did . My advice is if you want to make the move JUST DO IT, contact SPC and you won't be disappointed.
We brought our villa in Arboleas through Spanish Property Choice in October 2018 after seeing them on television and we are both very glad we did. I can't praise them highly enough, totally professional in everything they do they go the extra mile all the time. We had the good fortune to have Rachel Elliot as our contact, she was so informative, not just about the properties but about Spanish law, life in Spain and the local area, a totally dedicated member of the team, nothing was too much trouble for her. I whole-heartedly recommend this company to anyone who is selling or buying property in this area of Spain.

We met Robert from SPC and he could not have been more helpful. He showed us seven properties over two days and was very patient and professional, has a great sense of humour which made the whole experiene very enjoyable. We settled on the very first villa that he had shown us (we all knew it was 'the one'!) and helped us through the process....thank goodness! Thank you to Val as well for your help. SPC definitely the way to go.
I would like to thank you and the team for the sale of my property. Really appreciated being kept up to date throughout the process and would highly recommend the services of Spanish Property Choice.
Thanks again, all the best.
Yours sincerely, Maxine

We would just like to thank Shaun for all the help he gave us whilst purchasing our apartment in Mojacar. He went beyond his duty as an estate agent helping us with translation problems, sorting a really reliable solicitor for us. We had already fallen foul of the illegal property problem previously but this purchase was perfect and we couldn't be happier.
We'd recommend SPC to anyone thinking of buying in Spain.
Home owner review!
Good evening Kim
I just wanted you and Spanish Property Choice to know how my meeting with Andy went this afternoon.
Andy was so amiable and professional and he told me he’s only been here eight months, what a lovely, respectful man.
People are to quick to criticise and not to give praise, so I would like to take this opportunity to say a big Thankyou to Andy and all the staff, well done.
I look forward to seeing the photos of my apartment as I know the upmost care and attention was president.
Please relay this message to Andy as he should get the good feedback from a good meeting.

A friend of mine recommended Spanish Property Choice to me as they had sold her apartment on the same complex as ours. In my dealings with the Company, I have found each team member to be efficient, courteous,knowledgeable and professional. The sales office is in a very good location with a high footfall, the website is excellent and the staff speak many languages including German, Flemish French and of course Spanish. This was especially important to us as we wanted to appeal to as broad a base as possible. Shaun the Spanish Division Manager, marketed the property and provided lots of support and suggestions as to how we could improve the sale-ability of the apartment.
We have no hesitation in recommending Spanish Property Choice to others.
Richard Clarke just left a new 5-star TrustPilot review of Spanish Property Choice - The Garners of Sun Sea and Selling Houses:
We contacted SPC through social media and arranged an appointment with Sharon at the Albox office. What customer service! Sharon spent 2.5 hours with us, getting our remit, offering advice, guidance and much more. We compiled a list of properties and left with Steve on our 2 day viewing spree, we had requested a 3 bed villa, but the last property we viewed was on Sharon’s recommendation. Steve was brilliant not only showing us the properties but giving us history of the area and town information as we had never been to this area of Spain. We arrived at Sharon’s wildcard, the gates opened and WOW what a property, immaculate in every way, we quickly compromised on the 3 bed scenario!! Thanks to the Garners and SPC we have found our dream home in the sun.

Subject: A Huge Thanks
We wanted to drop you a short note to say a big thank you to your team at SPC. Our journey started just over a year ago and whilst we had briefly visited the Mojacar area on a previous trip, it was really your appearance on the Sun, Sea and Selling Houses show that got us thinking – maybe we should move to Spain!
So, last winter we got in touch and rented an apartment through SPC for a 4 month trial run. Both Sara and Juanma were fantastic in getting the rental all set up for us and then with the ongoing admin. I was always impressed when Juanma recalled my name whenever I came into the office to pay the monthly rent!
During that time in Mojacar we came to your open day at the new Huercal-Overa office (mainly because there was cake ????) but we met Sharon briefly and then came back the next day to meet with Andy and start the process of looking for a house. Nothing caught our attention at that time but…..
Anyways, we came home from that winter break with our minds made up and spent the next 3 months getting our UK house ready for sale. With a sale agreed, we headed back to Mojacar 2 weeks ago and with Andy & Robert on stand-by we viewed a total of 13 houses and are delighted to say that we found one! Both Andy and Robert were absolutely fantastic in helping with our search and whilst the house we have reserved was not marketed by SPC (boo!), Andy has still been our main point of contact in helping us.
* (Spanish Property Choice will always find you your dream home, if we do not have it on our books, we will work with our preferred collaborators to find you what you are looking for) We are selective who we collaborate with for your security *
To sum it all up, you have a great team of people working for you. Andy and Robert are a real asset to the business. And….we start our new life in Turre in November. We can’t wait !!

Brilliant family and very helpful cant do enough.
Lisa Cummings just left a new 5-star review of Spanish Property Choice - The Garners of Sun Sea and Selling Houses:
I cannot recommend this company more. Andy and the team went above and beyond to find us the perfect villa. This experience was made so easy for us and we were kept informed every step of the way. They put us in contact with a mortgage advisor and solicitor who are also highly recommended. We could not have asked for anything more.
We have wanted to live in Spain for years and found Spanish Property Choice on the internet. I emailed and Emma was very prompt in replying and after some discussion we decided it was best to rent first so we could take our time looking for our new home.
All in the office have been nothing but helpful, from helping us find a car to buy, to finding our solicitor. I was shown various propertise to rent and finally settled on one in Turre, where we have settled and made great friends and a great life.
When we started looking for a property to buy Emma arranged lots of viewings for us on property’s we liked and we finally settled on one in Alfaix, which is perfect for us and the team talked us through the buying process in Spain.
I know that even though we are now settled in our new home, should I have any questions at all the team at SPC will be more than happy to help.
I have no hesitation in recommending Spanish Property Choice, and have done so already.
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.

And is still giving advice and helping you honestly could not get any better service Matt (ps the big yin ) thank you. Please if anyone one is thinking of moving to Almeria GO to Spanish property choice. For GREAT service X
We were amazed at how simple Spanish Property Choice made it for us to buy our Apartment on Valle Del Este, everything went smoothly from contacting yourselves before we left England and arranging some viewings to meeting Shaun at the agreed time, he quickly identified which properties suited our budget and requirements and we fell in love with our apartment as soon as we walked onto the terrace.
The follow on help and support in advising us on English speaking solicitors and currency convertors made the purchase simple and stress free. Within 5 weeks we were the proud owners of a holiday home in Spain.
We would highly recommend yourselves to anyone looking to purchase a property in the sun .

Big thank you
After a couple of years searching for our dream home in Spain, we finally found what we were looking for with help from Emma. Emma went to great lengths to help us, above & beyond our expectations. She has continued to support us in relation to Spanish life & how the system works, including translation! ???? In our opinion the best estate agent in town - thank you ???? Mark & Carolyn

Hi Emma and Happy New Year!
When we started the process of selling our property in Vera we reviewed all information the various Real Estate Companies located in the area had on internet. Of those 15 – 20 Companies we reviewed we decided to contact Spanish Property Choice first as they looks to have a good “foundation” in the area.
We have never regret that we did this choice. From the first time we was in contact with them they gave us a very “good feeling” that we have made the best possible choice.
Spanish Property Choice has from “day one” been very professional, service minded and helpful during the whole process. We were very surprised that it took only three months before they found the purchaser of our property, a lot less than we expected when we started this sale process.
On this basis we can strongly recommend Spanish Property Choice to property owners that are in the process of selling their property.
Steve & Wendy Plumb
I would like to offer my, and my wife's thanks and appreciation for your ( and the staff's) help and professionalism in ensuring the successful purchase of our first home in Spain. I would recommend your services to all.

Just had a viewing with Steve. It remains to be seen if we pursue the purchase, however it is fair to state that his advice, in all aspects of the purchasing and associated processes was professional and concise. He even offered to assist with advice regardless if we purchased through his organisation. Very impressed and wouldn't hesitate to recommend their services.

To whom it may concern, dear prospective neighbours! Firstly well done and congratulations for arriving at the web-site or office of Spanish Property Choice. Our first introduction was care of Rightmove and a Place in the Sun following property within our price bracket for a number of months; as you do this you find the same property often for sale with several agents. We noted that not all agents provided the same level of information, detailed photos or information about the surrounding area so we were delighted to find this service from Spanish Property Choice. We first approached them via e-mail and requested information back the same way, I took the plunge and added a phone contact number but without exception the agents only contacted me by my preferred route. Their approach was friendly and sincere at every move, I gave them dates when we were visiting on holiday and enquired over viewing three property’s and any others they suggested in the same price / vicinity. We met at the office on the appointed day were given printouts of the property’s we wished to view and were driven to the location in style and comfort. There was no rush, no hard sell and we found the experience to be a pleasure and delight (as it should be!) We decided to spend a while wandering round the local area and so made our own way back (after a call to the sales office to verify the bus stop location and times) we pondered for a few days with no pressure other than one courtesy e-mail/text. We decided to view one apartment a second time and one other to compare by, again no fuss or pressure we were taken and looked around at our leisure, on return to the office we discussed the offer and purchase process and left with a wave and a promise to ponder over the weekend. We decided to return home and make our final decision form the cold wet comforts of home, one quick text and a follow up call and the offer was in, a brief barter over contents and a deal was done, deposit paid and agreed completion date of three months to allow vendor and ourselves time to move contents arrange bank, solicitors, NIE numbers etc. On the agreed day the sale was completed without hassle or pain; I know of all the horror stories and admittedly our journey is still at the start but what I can say is that Emma and the crew at Spanish Property Choice will remain our agents and friends and we are proud to be in their association.
Good luck on your journey
Richard & Jo
I went to Spanish Property Choice with a much loved property that due to personal circumstances I had to sell quickly.
My experience in the UK with estate agents did not give me enough confidence to put the property in the hands of a single agent. I therefore listed it with two agents plus I had a website.
All of this was unnecessary as SPC would not only be a fantastic agent but I also had the pleasure in meeting a unique family that went out of their way to assist me on a professional and personal level. Emma was on the phone or emailing me almost daily and although, in some ways, this was an unusual property, she found a buyer and the sale was completed quickly.
I highly recommend Spanish Property Choice and thank them for their help.
Great program and an inspiring family. If you’re thinking of moving to the sun or just fancy some easy, fun light entertainment the Garners are informative and this program is perfect.
