Many thanks to Julie from Casas Espania, who has been a star throughout our house purchase! She really invested in that important time, understanding what areas suited us and what we wanted out of a property
- then showing us only those properties that were for us. We ended up with 2 properties to chose from of which we put in an offer on one that was accepted that day - this one ticked all our boxes and was within budget, so needless to say we were over the moon!
Julie recommended independent solicitor Sheila Garcia and Sheila has been excellent, always keeping us fully updated and did a great job where our sellers paperwork was minimal.We handed Power Of Attorney to Sheila and she did the rest for us no need to come back to complete in person.Julie and Sheila work together brilliantly, do not under estimate how much the estate agent and solicitor need to be in touch to get things moving especially when time is tight and both Julie and Sheila were superb for us.
Julie also recommended Moneycorp for handling our currency requests (much cheaper than uk banks!) and once setup you could be left alone making your own trades online on the Moneycorp website with no need for phone calls with brokers. This saved so much time and meant you had the option to get money transferred in your own time - so easy!!
Julie has kept in regular contact throughout the whole process and her extensive local contacts have been invaluable to us such as locksmiths, cleaners, electricians etc.Her map drawing is legendary and she will find you your way to anywhere you need to go and get anything sorted! A huge thanks again to Julie and the excellent Casas Espania team - they delivered on getting us in our property the first night we returned (even on a Sunday!) and making our Spanish property dreams come true!!
