Our names are Philip & Annette, in May 2016 we decided that we had enough of the dreary mornings, the traffic and work so decided to take early retirement and head for warmer climes. Putting our house up for sale we headed to Spain, having never been here before we were pleasantly surprised at how friendly the people were and how nice the country was. Our friends recommended the Almeria area and after trawling the internet for a few weeks came across Andrea. Right from our first contact, we felt at ease, her friendly approach and sensible questioning made us feel she was the right agents to find us our new home. We came over in June and met with Andrea, for the next few days we were shown properties that fell within our price range and what we had listed as “wanted” a stunning view being at the top… Andrea was the consummate professional and after opening the properties allowed us to wander around for as long as we wanted but never too far away to answer questions. We never felt that anything was too much trouble and in typical “place in the sun” style Andrea came up with the perfect property suiting our needs. I am writing this on the eve of moving into our new home ( 26/9/16). Yes, the paperwork can seem quite daunting however Andrea and the girls in the office are only too willing to offer help and advise. Our questions ranged from, “ where can l get a Spanish sim card, furniture, supermarkets, hairdresser and restaurants etc.etc etc.” I very rarely feel the need to write a recommendation as it’s not often that something exceeds your expectations. This is one of those rare occasions. So if you feel as we did and its time to leave the rat race l can only offer my advice and hopefully point you in the right direction.
Philip (PS: The views we are going to wake up to each morning are “spectacular”)
