We had already booked an inspection trip with another Company however this was cancelled as having undertaken further research, we were not satisfied with the properties and locations and anyway we had now seen the properties we wanted to focus on.
It still took a further 5 months to actually get to Spain and in that time Paul and Fran kept in contact and responded to our many questions regarding off plan investment, mortgages and Paul‟s experiences of actually living in Spain. We specifically wanted to pay our own way and attain our independence and Paul respected this with no issue.
The visit was arranged over a 4 day period and on arrival Paul met us at the airport and took us for a drink and chat at the hotel he had booked on our behalf. We discussed our ideas and family requirements once again and Paul left us for the evening to settle in and enjoy our evening meal.
The morning after, up and raring to go Paul, explained the plans for the day ahead, arranging for us to see key ready properties in and around the Murcia area. During the car journeys, Paul gave us an overview of the area in a very relaxed and friendly manner without a hint of selling or pressure, it was more of a fact finding mission on the area in general as he showed us the various sites and properties for consideration. At the end of day 1, Paul dropped us at the beach for a few hours‟ relaxation and Family time as we made our way back to the Hotel for the evening, getting a feel for the area for ourselves.
Day 2 and off to see other sites and eventually onto the site which had stirred our interest. The site was nothing more than an open field surrounded by mountains but Paul had taken the time to show us alternatives, allowing us to visualise what this would become in a short period of time. We spent a good few hours at the site reviewing the plan and different properties available and eventually out onto the site to the area we had selected our Villa. Paul spent the whole time explaining the options without any pressure and we eventually left for the day without a final decision being made, again being dropped off by Paul for us to gather our thoughts on the day.
We returned the following day and after a few tense deliberations with the builder during which Paul was extremely helpful, we made our decision ! It was then documentation, off to Lunch for celebration and then onto the Solicitor for review of the paperwork before returning to the site for completion with signatures.
The final day was uneasy with a sense of trepidation at our decision, Paul took it all in his stride and explained the long term benefits as we visited the Bank, a furniture retailer, then lunch, before Paul took the time to take us on an afternoon‟s sightseeing of the La Manga area.
Paul was highly professional, listening and calmly answering the many questions we had during the decision making process, he knew it would be a matter of time before we made our decision, be it then or at sometime later, but he assisted us all the way in our discussions with the Developer.
I know I tested Paul to the very limit, but he responded and continues to maintain contact with us through the build process. Thank You Paul. We are pleased with the decision we have made and have no hesitation in recommending Paul and the team to others looking to take the plunge and buy their dream home in Spain.
A big Thank You for helping us live our dream.... Emma
Paul, we had always thought about buying in Spain but did not want to be pushed into something without first fully exploring ALL possibilities. When we first contacted you made it clear that you would only show us properties in our price range and would not pressurise us into buying unless we were ready.
I would like to thank you Paul for showing what good customer service is about. You have provided us with very good advice, I feel like we have become friends during the purchase process, and we both now feel very happy with the property we have bought and the fact the your customer service still continues.
Thanks again Paul for your superb service. I would, and have, recommended you to others who are thinking of buying a property in Costa Calida area.
We had been thinking of a holiday home for some time. We wanted to deal with an agent who wasn't pushy, after 3 visits we finally made our choice. We never at any point felt obliged to buy, the visits were very relaxed and comfortable.
Movehappy gave us an amazing package that saved us a fortune, Paul even arranged for our internet to be connected, he checked the house for us when it had been built to make sure everything was ok.
Nothing is too much trouble for Fran and Paul, a lovely friendly couple who helped us find our dream home in the sun. If your thinking of buying in Spain this company is fantastic!!
Big thanks to Paul and Fran, after making the huge decision to purchase a holiday home I was worried and sceptical I needed to find an agent that had a caring approach. I am a retired lady on my own, many long chats with Fran put my mind at rest, I was collected from the Airport and dropped off at a lovely Hotel. Paul collected me and showed me many Apartments, he was very patient as I am very fussy.
I never at any point felt under pressure, in fact he even advised me not to make a hasty decision and to sleep on it. I am delighted with my purchase and hope to retire to Spain soon, the movehappy package allowed me to choose my furniture and everything else was included even the legal fees. Thank you both for everything, hopefully we can meet up for a drink one day.
