My name is Simon Cole and I am the owner and founder of Coles of Andalucia.
Together with my wife Rachael and our (then) two children, we relocated to Spain in 2006 to enjoy a better quality of life and the superb climate that the country has to offer.
The reason we chose to relocate to Spain is becoming an all too familiar story for many people both old and young. The rising cost of living in the U.K, the worrying problems socially and the kind of environment our children were growing up in, all collectively led us to ask the question "there must be more to life than this?". We asked that question continually for two years and then started to explore different areas of Spain.
After many visits to the Costa Del Sol, Costa Calida and the Costa Blanca we decided they were not the kind of Spain we wanted. So the search then led us to the Costa de Almeria and on our first trip one night to the old town of Mojacar, Rachael looked at me smiling and said "This is the place isn't it". We just knew.
Having already devoted my career to date within the property industry the natural progression upon arriving in Spain was to move into estate agency with one of the market leaders here in Almeria. I then went on to form Coles Of Andalucia to offer a more comprehensive and personal service.
COLES of ANDALUCIA
Here at Cole's we have seen the market change over recent times and adapted our stance to provide the potential buyer with as many choices as possible when it comes to purchasing their Spanish home. It is no secret that the Spanish market was difficult post 2008 and we had to adapt to the challenging market conditions during this period. We were constantly looking to list quality legal properties from all sources and continue with this approach now by listing a large selection of resale, key ready builder special offers, off plan bargains and bank repossessions. Our aim is to match the right buyer and the right property.
We have many options to choose from with our constantly updating property portfolio. We scrutinize paperwork to ensure all properties listed are legal to provide that extra peace of mind. Whatever type of property you are looking for in the Almeria region, we can help you and we will do so with professionalism, integrity and honesty.
We are sure you will find our approach a little different. Estate agents in Spain (and everywhere) have had more than their fair share of bad publicity and we do all we can to buck that trend. We firmly believe that honesty and transparency is the only approach. We would rather forego a sale than “exaggerate the truth” to get one.
