At Welcome Estates, our main aim has always been to find a dream home for our clients, not just to tick a box. We take the time to understand exactly what people are looking for to find properties that match their needs and guide our customers through the process from start to finish.
We’ve been through the move ourselves and understand the worries, confusion and challenges of finding a new home in Spain. So, when Dan and his wife Emma met our team at A Place in the Sun Live London, we knew just how to help. Here is a quick Q&A with Dan who found his dream Spanish home with Welcome Estates.
Why Did you Choose Welcome Estates?
When looking for a new home in Spain we had a list of a few agents we were planning to check out but happened to meet Welcome Estates at A Place in the Sun Live and instantly connected. With other companies we had talked to, we felt like we were using up a time slot and could tell they wanted to move on after a few minutes. When talking to Lisa and the team, there was no point where we felt she wanted to move on and they took the time to talk to us properly, even coming back with some questions of their own to help. Having experienced the move themselves, they really seemed to understand the stresses of buying in a new country and ticked every box for us as agents.
What Areas Did you Search in?
With family in the UK, we knew that we wanted to buy somewhere that was close to the airport with La Finca being the furthest distance we wanted to travel. As we will be moving with two children, one just finishing school and one just starting secondary school, it was important for us to work with someone who understood that process on a personal level.
Who Helped You Find Your New Home?
As well as talking to Lisa about our initial ideas, Launa was our dedicated property consultant there on the ground to help show us around the properties we had shortlisted. We viewed hundreds of properties online before narrowing down the list to around 15 before being shown around 11 properties by Launa during a four-day trip to Spain. Welcome Estates couldn’t do enough before, during and after the trip and even sorted accommodation for us, they were incredible.
Do You Love Your New Property?
We fell in love with our new home during our visit to view properties without feeling pressured at any point towards or away from any of the homes we viewed. The network of support Lisa and her team have beyond just the property listing is fantastic, they even helped connect us with a legal team to take care of the official house moving business.
Are You Glad You Chose Welcome Estates to Help?
I would give Welcome Estates five stars for everything. Unlike with other agents, we never felt like we were on the receiving end of a sales pitch and they have kept in touch the entire time, even after we decided on a property. We’re even planning a trip out to visit in October and will be visiting the office to see them! They really understood the emotions we were feeling about the move and never rushed us, always making us feel like they were standing shoulder-to-shoulder with us to help in any way they could. The level of personal knowledge they had was unbeatable and they really made the experience special.
