Very pleased with our purchase through Welcome Estates and would unreservedly recommend.
Andy Hadder dealt with us from our initial viewing(s), to picking up the keys and went above and beyond to make sure he got us the right property at a fair price and everything inbetween.
Andy’s knowledge of the locality and his willingness to share that with us has been invaluable especially as we were buying as non residents. When we needed a quick phone call, a maintenance contact or just knowledge on purchase procedures Andy provided that promptly and with a sense of humour too.
If you are thinking of buying in Spain and looking for a great estate agents then talk to Andy Hadder at Welcome Estates.

What an amazing, customer focused business!
We have recently completed the purchase of a lovely villa and Welcome Estates, who were the selling agent, really were first class every step of the way. From the very first viewing to the after sales service, there really was nothing they could be faulted for. In fact they went way above and beyond what you might expect from a normal selling agent. We viewed the property multiple times within a short space of time, we even asked for access for a builder to view it. We asked lots of questions, receiving real time answers, even late into the evening and during weekends. On receiving our keys, we were presented with a lovely luxury thank you gift. After we received the keys, we didn’t know how to turn on an appliance so Welcome Estates came to our rescue and got it working. Then, after we left to go home to the UK, there was a problem with our alarm going off, so Welcome Estates contacted the alarm company and got the problem sorted. They even called out a locksmith and got our locks changed when I worried about not having done that before we left! What an amazing, customer focused business! All that’s left to say is a massive thank you to Lisa, Andy, Carl and the team. I couldn’t recommend them highly enoughHilary And Mark (February 28th, 2022)
Put our mind at rest
Just completed on our holiday bolt hole via Welcome Estates! We were lucky to get out and view properties in Sept and October 2021, Steve was a superb agent. All queries were knowledgeably answered or found answers quickly and in detail. I know he’s acting on behalf of the vendor, but it put our minds at rest knowing he would do his utmost to sort out any little problems. Would recommend to friends, family and in fact anyone and everyone! Can’t wait to get back to some sunshine!

We are here for you .......
We found Welcome Estates very professional and they went out of the way to make our purchase in Spain go as smoothly as possible. There were a few hickups and Launa Williams kept us updated every inch of the way and went beyond anything she should have been expected to do to help us out. The hick ups by the way were nothing to do with Welcome Estates. We found Launa approachable and replied to any queries we had immediately. We would highly recommend Welcome Estates and Launa Williams if you are buying a house in Spain. We were novices and depended on their expertise. Now we have our dream home in Spain and so can you.

Looking to sell - five star service
We recently sold our property on Golf La Finca through Welcome Estates and would say that the service we received was exeptional. Although the property was on sale throughout the Covid 19 pandememic Welcome still made efforts to present the property via online virtual viewings . We also received a good quantity of actual viewings. The sale was conducted by Launa Williams who represented Welcome Estates in a dedicated ,professional and friendly manner, she kept us informed on a frequent basis on the progress of the sale for which are very grateful.Joh Stafford (February 8th, 2022)
Happy seller ...Facebook review
We were able to sell our apartment thanks to Welcome estates. The whole team is welcoming, attentive, professional and efficient. We had their help (including Andy and Dean) from sale to closing the process. We can highly recommend Welcome Estates to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.Claude Pan (February 8th, 2022)
Wij willen Andy bedanken voor zijn hulp na aankoop van een villa op La Finca.
Andy reageerde namens de verkoopmakelaar op al onze vragen en heeft ons geholpen met alle vragen die er waren.
Andy reageert altijd snel op de vragen die er zijn gesteld en probeert meteen te bemiddelen bij probleempjes als die er mochten zijn.
Ik raad Welcome Estates dan ook van harte aanedwin haakma (February 1st, 2022)

My wife and I purchased a resale villa on La Finca in November 2021 that was offered for sale via Welcome Estates, and I have to say that Andy Hadder was absolutely superb.
We have been looking to buy on La Finca since 2019 and have had viewings with every agent in the area, and by far, Andy is the best and most professional agent on the urbanisation. His knowledge of the area, coupled with his honesty and integrity were a key factor for us, and we can't recommend him enough.
If you are looking to buy a property on La Finca, then I would highly recommend both Welcome Estates, and in particular, Andy Hadder.Michael Lenihan (January 10th, 2022)
Putting you at ease
We recently sold our lola bungalow through Welcome Estates and can only offer praise and thanks to all the team. We had many viewings which were all carried out in a professional manner with feedback from all the sales team who accompanied prospective purchasers to our property. As a seller it is important to feel comfortable with your agent and know that every effort is being made to sell your property. This is indeed the case with Welcome and the day Colin rang to confirm we had a buyer, and the offer agreed,was a memorable moment.Lynn Hutson (January 8th, 2022)
The after sales care from all the team was much appreciated as no question was too much trouble. Needless to say we would highly recommend Welcome to sell your property.
5 Star Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
We have recently purchased a property through Welcome Estates and it has been the most straight forward process I have ever experienced.
From the very first enquiry, the experience was first class,and Steve couldn't have been more helpful. I have purchased several properties in recent years but this was my first overseas purchase, it was a somewhat impulsive purchase so I hadn't done any research on the buying process in Spain and was largely clueless. Steve made it all really simple and even recommended legal support (which was also superb).
My one complaint with every property purchase is typically the lack of proactive communication, and delayed responses. Absolutely not the case with Steve, communication was proactive, prompt, and friendly.
I simply cannot speak highly enough of Steve and Welcome Estates. Thanks Steve and everyone else involved.Vince Rawle (January 1st, 2022)
Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness

We purchased a home through Welcome estates and were very happy with the service. They were extremely responsive, and did a very job explaining the area and the options. The service was not only pre sale, but beyond that, always available for any new questions for us newbies in Spain. The whole team at La Finca were very professional and helpful. In summary a excellent service from Lisa and her team. thanks.Gary Issacs (September 12th, 2021)

Amazing serviceJulie and Steve Moore (August 4th, 2021)Amazing service from Lisa and Team at Welcome Estates. By going over and above from start to finish made our first foreign property purchase a pleasurable experience. Huge Thanks to Lisa and her team. 👍😎
Over and above!!!!
We sold our existing property and bought a new property with Welcome. This was in the middle of the pandemic and we were unable to get to Spain. The process for both was made very easy by Lisa and her team but they went over and above by packing up our old property and moving everything to our new property. Not only did they do that, but everything was put into the relevant rooms ready for unpacking when we finally arrived at our new house. I cannot recommend this Company highly enough and quite frankly don't know how we would have managed it all without their continuous support.Susan Edwards (July 10th, 2021)

Bij deze willen wij Welcome Estates
Bij deze willen wij Welcome Estates, en met name u, Lesley, van harte bedanken voor de vele informatie en nuttige tips die we van u kregen. Zonder u waren we waarschijnlijk nog steeds aan het wachten op een oud huis van 2006 en hadden we nooit het comfort en uitzicht van ons nieuw huis gekregen.
Wij hebben het gevoel dat we hier veel beter behandeld worden dan destijds bij Innova Villas, met name Loretta is heel vriendelijk en geen vraag is haar te veel.
Wij kunnen dan ook niet anders dan Welcome Estates in de toekomst aanbevelen bij onze vrienden.Guy & Reinhilde Thyssen (March 8th, 2021)

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.
Mr Hudder (November 5th, 2020)
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!

(Translated by Google) We came into contact with Welcome Estates by accident. We had sold our own home and were looking for another home. The office was open in the afternoon and it invites you to walk in.
The sales process went smoothly and they thought along with us, you could see that the office has a lot of experience.
The service was excellent, all questions were answered and always available.
We would certainly recommend Welcome Estates to others, the good service, thinking along with you and discussing matters in your own language make Welcome Estates a reliable real estate agency.
Wij zijn bij toeval met Welcome Estates in contact gekomen. Wij hadden onze eigen woning verkocht en op zoek naar een andere woning. Het kantoor was s middags geopend en het nodigt uit om naar binnen te lopen.
Het verkoopproces proces verliep soepel en ze dachten met ons mee, je kon merken dat het kantoor veel ervaring heeft.
De service was prima, alle vragen werden beantwoord en altijd bereikbaar.

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)

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)
