Without a doubt. We purchased our property from Welcome Estates in December 2019. The whole process was very straightforward. The staff are excellent, and we would recommend them to anyoneJames Taylor (January 1st, 1970)
My husband and i have dreamt of owning a property in Spain for over 10 years after staying with a Family member who owns a property on the La Finca Golf Complex.
We had done lots of research online and had flights booked to come over and view various properties however our plans were scuppered when the World went into Covid lockdown.
We carried on researching online looking at various sites around the area and made a list of all those properties we could visit when the restrictions are lifted.
One day i came across a property for sale on the La Finca Golf Complex which was been sold by Welcome Estates.
What attracted me to this property was the very reasonable price it was been sold at, as previously i had ruled out this site as been out of my price range.
I decided to contact Welcome Estates to ask for more information about the property and was surprised to receive a very prompt reply from Welcome Estates Lisa Cornforth.
Lisa provided all the information i had asked for and also asked if i would be interested in having a virtual viewing on the property.
This is something i had never ever considered before as i always believed you have to be there to get a feel for the place.
How wrong i was
Lisa arranged a convenient time to contact me for a video call via whatsap and we chose to start at the Welcome Estates Office on the La Finca site so that we could see the area the property is situated in.
During the virtual viewing Lisa gave me lots of information regarding the property and encouraged me to ask as many questions as possible.
I could even ask her to open all the cupboards and look in them lol.
At the end of the viewing i felt completely satisfied as if i had been there in person myself.
After the viewing there was no pressure to take things any further however we both knew this was the property for us.
After contacting Lisa and expressing our interest she then talked us through the buying process making it very easy to understand and put us in touch with professional services to help with the buying and money exchange.
Everything has been done remotely and stress free much easier then when we bought a house in the UK
We are now just waiting to complete and looking forward to when we can pick up our keys for our new holiday Home.
If anyone is hesitating about buying a property in these strange Covid times give virtual viewing a go you never know you might find your place of your dreams.

Buying in the pandemic
Given the current pandemic it was not possible to visit La Finca in person to view properties. Whilst looking at the Welcome Estates website we found a property that ticked all the boxes and was also keenly priced.
Although we were uncertain as to whether we should commit to purchasing without visiting, the 'virtual tour' process alleviated any concerns that we had. The viewing process started from the office and enabled us not only to see the property but also to take a good look at the surrounding areas. The viewing never felt rushed, the quality of the video link was perfect and we had as much time as we needed to give directions as to what or where we would like to look again. We have now purchased the property and have no doubt that we have done the right thing to secure our dream home, as good as the virtual viewing was we now cant wait to see it for ourselves!

6000 miles away
´From beginning to end, Welcome Estates has been a fantastic partner to us while we were selling our flat on La Finca. Being 6,000 miles away, we knew we could trust Welcome Estates to do the big things, like be in constant communication with us and negotiate fairly on our behalf—to the small things like make sure the place was left locked up, shutters down and lights off after each showing. Their staff are professional, and we highly recommend Welcome Estates for your buying and selling needs! ´Mrs M (January 30th, 2020)
Understanding our requirements
´From the moment we touched base with Welcome Estates to enquire about properties in their expansive portfolio we were incredibly impressed. Every point of contact we had was dealt with professionally, courteously and very efficiently. The team were very good at understanding our requirements and pulled together a range of properties for us to view.
Lesley not only understood our requirements, but also offered us a wild card (a property we had not even considered) to which suited our needs perfectly and we ended up buying.
From the initial consultation through to the completion of the sale, Welcome put us in touch with some fabulous contacts from solicitors to money conversion companies and service people to ensure the smooth transition of the purchase. All of the services recommended were of the highest standard and great to deal with, especially the legal team, Legal Iurius´
We would not hesitate to recommend Welcome Estates to buyers and sellers, they have a vast local knowledge, incredible team who are motivated and excel in getting things right for the customer and a real pleasure to deal with.Mr & Mrs C (January 30th, 2020)

Unfortunately, they were pipped at the post in selling our villa, but Gary, Richard, Sorelle and the team were great. They provided excellent advice and helped us with utility communications, etc. Very nice people to deal with.Bob Lucas (January 1st, 1970)

A great experience from start to finish
From the first enquiry I made to Lynn in January 2018, to receiving the keys from Richard for my apartment in May 2018, the professionals at Welcome Estates made sure that my property buying experience was stress-free, smooth and totally without any sales pressure or expectations. Indeed, it was a great experience from start to finish.
Any fears I had about the complications of buying abroad were eased by their expert handling of all the different aspects of property purchase in Spain. They guided me through absolutely everything: legalities, currency exchange, banking and much, much more. Furthermore they were always prepared to go the extra mile, often taking me to wherever I needed to be to meet the appropriate people.
I would say to anyone thinking of buying property in this region to go ahead and follow your dream. In particular use Welcome Estates like I did. In my opinion this is the first and best step you can take. Without any hesitation whatsoever, I give this great company my full endorsement.Frank Atkinson (June 7th, 2019)
Helped us through every aspect of buying a property
Welcome estates helped us through every aspect of buying a property in Spain, like most people unless you actually live in Spain you won’t know or understand the local laws which can be daunting, Welcome took us through every step of the journey and made us feel at ease throughout. They connected us with local Solicitors (who were also great), banks and a currency exchange. Without a doubt the most stress free house buying experience I’ve ever had, puts UK estate agents to shame. Highly recommendedJon Baird (June 7th, 2019)

New build property on La Finca
We would like to thank Welcome Estates for all you have done for us. Buying in Spain can be a daunting prospect but it was a pleasure to purchase a property from you.
Welcome estates provided a brilliant professional service from start to finish, with excellent communication all the way through.
The after sales service is superb, we didn't just buy a property we also brought into a fantastic, friendly, supportive 'family'. Nothing was too much trouble and they supported us with advice on banks, where to buy our white goods and setting up fibre amongst many other things.
We cannot thank welcome estates enough, they have made our whole experience an absolute pleasure and I would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone.Karen Cruickshank (June 7th, 2019)

Was a nice chat about property and the area when we went in this office. Not like the idiots who don't let you get a word in a few doors down. Nice chap on the desk showed us property will more than likely buy from them thanks for a no hassle approach whilst on holidayGareth Nugent (October 1st, 2018)
