This case study is a testament to our commitment to providing unparalleled service, expert guidance, and a personal touch that makes every property purchase a truly enjoyable and stress-free experience. Join us as we explore the Laings’ journey with Movehappy, reflecting our dedication to professionalism and customer satisfaction in the vibrant world of Spanish real estate.

Discovering Movehappy

The Laings discovered Movehappy through a Google search while exploring property options in Southern Spain. Among several agents contacted, Movehappy stood out, thanks to the prompt and informative response from Nathan, a member of the sales team. This initial interaction set the tone for a trustworthy and professional relationship.

Viewing Properties: A Personalised Experience

During their property viewing trip, Stuart and Stephanie were impressed by the personalised service provided by Movehappy. They were chauffeured around for multiple days, allowing them to explore various properties and neighbourhoods extensively. This level of service was invaluable in helping them understand the local area and property market.

Local Expertise and Insights

Although the Laings had a clear idea of what they wanted, their knowledge of the local area was limited. Movehappy, particularly Paul and Nathan, went above and beyond to acquaint them with the region, demonstrating extensive local knowledge and a keen understanding of the Laings’ needs.

Decision to Purchase in Spain

The Laings chose Southern Spain for its direct flight accessibility from Scotland and the promise of year-round sunshine. Their goal was to find a holiday home that would serve as a family retreat.

Exploring a Range of Options

With Movehappy’s assistance, the Laings viewed about 10 properties in the Murcia region. They appreciated how Movehappy accommodated their pre-selected choices and suggested additional properties that matched their criteria. The ability to spontaneously visit properties spotted during their trip was a testament to Movehappy’s flexibility and commitment to customer satisfaction.

Choosing Movehappy for Their Purchase

The Laings did not feel the need to engage with other estate agents, as Movehappy’s service exceeded their expectations. The deciding factors for their purchase with Movehappy were the comprehensive, end-to-end process, the friendly communication, and the relatability of dealing with a family business.

The Movehappy Package: A Value-Added Bonus

While the Movehappy package was not the primary factor in their decision, the Laings found it extremely beneficial. It alleviated the stress of dealing with local bureaucratic issues, allowing them to focus on the excitement of their new home.


Stuart and Stephanie would wholeheartedly recommend Movehappy to friends and family. Their experience was characterised by professionalism, trustworthiness, and a personal touch that made their property purchase in Spain both enjoyable and stress-free.


The Laings’ journey with Movehappy is a prime example of the company’s dedication to providing an exceptional and personalised service. From the initial contact to the final purchase, Movehappy proved to be a reliable, knowledgeable, and friendly partner in the Laings’ quest for their dream home in Spain.
