I recently travelled to "Spain to buy a property".
I had found several on A Place in the Sun website that were being marketed by Cole’s of Andalusia.
I contacted Cole’s in order to view the properties during my viewing trip.
An appointment was made to view four properties and I was met by Simon Cole.
We were met at a pre-arranged time and place and he introduced himself and told us a bit about how he ended up being an Estate Agent in Spain. He came across as genuine and honest and dispelled all those thoughts we all have about "dodgy agents" especially in Spain.
He chauffeured us to the properties and told us a little about each one on the way there. It was refreshing to be given such an honest appraisal of each property. There was no hard sell with all of his efforts towards selling at all costs. Actually quite to the contrary. It was most apparent that he was being completely open and fair and I had no doubt that he was acting in my best interest as well as those of the vendor.
He gave an honest opinion and informed us of any negatives regarding the properties prior to arrival.
He helped me find my dream home and after several viewing visits, I made an offer. After a bit of negotiating a deal was struck, I paid the reservation deposit and the process of buying duly began.
Simon has kept in touch with me, has helped guide me through the buying process and couldn’t have been any greater help than he already has been.
I have written this review because I cannot commend the service I received highly enough and would encourage anyone looking to buy in that area of Spain to make Cole’s their first point of contact.
