CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

 

Over the past few years our valued customers have taken time to provide us with some kind words based on their experiences.

Below are just a few of them.

 

MATT & AMANDA JENKINS

We cannot express how professional and helpful Simon and his team at Coles are. Rarely do we experience a company that truly go above and beyond expectations and it has been a pleasure to purchase our property through Coles. Even after the property was purchased, Simon and Coles are still happy to provide service and advice and it is a real joy to interact with them. If you want to buy or sell in Andalucia, go to Coles, it's as simple as that.

DON AND NANCY HARBRON

Dear Tim and Simon,

We wanted to thank you so much for helping us to sell our villa in just 1 day! Having a solid client base and comprehensive knowledge of the relevant area and properties on which to draw surely helped and demonstrates that Coles of Andalucia are the premier agents in this region.

We really appreciated the friendly and informal but extremely professional approach to our sale for which we are most appreciative. Not only with the actual sale but also with the necessary paperwork for both us and our purchasers.

We have already recommended you to several others and will continue to do so without hesitation.

Regards, Don and Nancy Harbron.

HAPPY CLIENT

Back in November I posted a request on the forum asking people to recommend an estate agent to sell our apartment at Valle del Este

Delighted to say that, on people's recommendations, we instructed Tim Vollans of Coles of Andalucia in Turre. A true super agent, he found a buyer the first day the flat was on the market and the sale completed last week.

A job well done. Thoroughly recommend Tim - a nice guy and a great Agent. Thank you!

LYNNE AND STEVE

Hello Tim.

Just to say how pleased we are with the way you handled our house sale. Your knowledge of the intricacies of the Spanish procedures was most welcome. We also appreciated your calming influence when we were maybe becoming a little stressed!!

We wish you every success in the future.

PAUL AND LORRAINE

What a result; two weeks after putting my property up for sale as part of a three year plan (based on the time it normally takes to sell properties in this area) and we had a buyer. We have just completed and everyone, buyers included are delighted. This was a high end property asking a price which was totally out of character with other properties in the Arboleas area; but Simon and his team just thrived on this challenge. Coles of Andalucia are specialists in selling this type of quality villa and with their Premium Property section on their website are well placed to market them. From the initial visit, including a realistic valuation to the making of a fantastic video for the website, Simon and his team were nothing but totally professional and would always go that extra mile to ensure you were comfortable with what can be a very emotional experience.

I would recommend this company to anyone considering selling or buying a property in Andalucia and have nothing but praise for the professional and courteous way in which our sale was handled. There are many so called bona fide property salesmen out there but with Coles of Andalucia you are guaranteed a top class service, in particular if you are selling a high end property into what is still a difficult market.

Simon, Tim and the Team, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

KEVIN

We have just bought our dream villa in Arboleas Spain and we, like a lot of other people were very scared of parting with our hard earned money. Coles made our buying experience stress and hassle free. The whole team were very helpful and we are so glad we bought through them. Even now after the sale we can phone them for help and advice no matter what the problem. We can never thank Coles enough and we highly recommend them. Thank you Simon and your team we could not have done it without you.

JACKY R

My husband died last year and the house was too big for me on my own so I made the very difficult decision to sell. From the moment I contacted Simon at Coles of Andalucia I felt as if everything was now in control. Always the professional Simon took details of the house, and advised me on the price he felt that the house would sell for. He then spent a couple of hours taking a video that showed the house to its full potential, it looked so good I wanted to buy it myself!!!! His excellent marketing network reaped benefits! Within a few days a couple had booked their flights and were over from the UK viewed the property a couple of times then made an offer, which was accepted, and for the amount Simon advised. Simon ‘held my hand’ all the way through and everything was so smooth and stress free. This happened all within 4 weeks of the house going on the market. I would have no qualms about recommending Coles or Andalucia.

JR

Hi Tim Just wanted to say sincere thanks to you and Coles for helping me to find and start buying a house that I adore, I cannot wait to start spending time there. I would highly recommend you and Coles to anyone. Regards JR

JIM & ANN

From the time we contacted Coles of Andalucia to discuss our dream purchase in Spain Simon looked after us listening to what we had to say and not putting pressure on us to look at properties that were not of interest to us. Nothing was too much trouble. He behaved professionally throughout the purchase of the house responding quickly to all questions and concerns we had and acting as a conduit with the conveyancing lawyer on our behalf when necessary. We would recommend him without hesitation to anyone who is thinking of buying a home in the Almeria region.

LORRAINE SQUIRES

I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to Simon at Coles of Andalucia for helping me to sell my property recently. You went over and above what anybody could ever expect of an estate agent - you stuck by me, gave me support, believed in the property and no matter what did not give up. THANK YOU THANK YOU. Even though paperwork needed addressing, you did so much running around helping to get it sorted out (which you managed to do even though I had been trying to do just that for years). If only I had bought from you in the beginning. Anyway, you did it and I am so grateful. No matter how many times I say it, it can never be enough - THANK YOU. Anyone thinking of buying in Spain or selling could not choose a better estate agent. Lorraine Squires.

GRAEME & SILVIA

I don't normally write testimonials, however I wanted to share my experience with anyone who is thinking about buying a property in Andalucia. I got in touch with Simon before Xmas as I was interested in finding an estate agent that we could personally use in our search for our dream property. At this point we had arranged a weekend in Spain on 17th Jan. We met Simon on the Saturday when we viewed a number of properties which fell within our brief. Not only did Simon show us round the properties he took us on a sight seeing tour on the day. Simon was very knowledgeable about the area and also about the process of buying in Spain. Needless to say we found a property and made an offer for it on the Sunday. After some negotiation, we agreed a sale At no point did I ever feel that we were under pressure to buy and Simon was a great help throughout. On the Monday before we returned to the UK we managed to see a solicitor- arranged for power of attorney and with the solicitor and Simon met with a notary to have the papers signed off. Simon is a great guy and I would trust him implicitly. I cannot speak highly enough of Simon and would recommend him to anyone who is slightly nervous of estate agents and the process of buying abroad. Our purchase is progressing nicely and expect to complete in the next week or so. Its been a painless experience-thanks in the main to Simon. If anyone wants any further details on our search and our experience using Coles- if you drop me an email to: Graeme I will let you know.

CHRIS & JULIE

"We will be retiring very soon and so started looking to Spain for our holiday home. I was a little worried that while still working we would not really have the time to arrange all the things that go with buying abroad, N.I.E. numbers, solicitors etc. With Simon on board I couldn't have been more wrong. He went above and beyond his normal estate agent duties to make buying our dream home 100% hassle free. I wish buying a home in the U.K. was as simple. Simon with the help of Maria Maroto, our solicitor, did a fantastic job of answering all our questions, saving us £££££££'s by recommending brokers etc. Simon is a genuine guy and a endless source of local knowledge, of which he is keen to share. If anybody out there is looking to buy in the Andalucia region I can heartily recommend Coles. Once again thanks Simon, we will see you soon.

MAVIS & PETE SPRATT

Mavis and i had been searching for our dream location "in the sun" for about four years, decided on Spain and the area most suited to our wild side and budget. We chose Almeria with its beautiful beaches, mountains, villages, Mojacar and friendly people. Most of our research was done on the internet, it was during one of our many property searches we came across "Coles of Andalucia". A very welcoming web site.

MAVIS & PETER SPRATT

Mavis and i had been searching for our dream location "in the sun" for about four years, decided on Spain and the area most suited to our wild side and budget. We chose Almeria with its beautiful beaches, mountains, villages, Mojacar and friendly people. Most of our research was done on the internet, it was during one of our many property searches we came across "Coles of Andalucia". A very welcoming web site. We e mailed Simon with our requirements and some examples of villas we liked from his file and various other agents. He sent us his "Essential Guide to Almeria". This was the start of an enjoyable experience. We agreed to visit last November and "do some viewings". Simon helped us with great accommodation at two locations during our ten day stay. We arrived in Vera. Next morning we were met by Simon who during the tour of various properties verified our requirements and budget. Day two, more viewings and stops for coffee and relaxed discussion. "Our" villa was saved to last, it ticked the boxes on location, specification, build quality and potentially price. Such a good fit that we cancelled future viewings and instead returned to "our" villa for a closer look including the surrounding area. We met up later with Simon and discussed making an offer. Simon handled the negotiation with the vendor for us. Over an evening drink we heard that our offer had been accepted. Happily Simon was able to help us with contacts for finance transfer, banks and lawyers making and taking us to appointments. Mavis and i selected our team and the dream became a reality on 30 Jan 2012. We recorded our experience for the future benefit of others thinking of purchasing a property in Andalucia. We found Simon the key to the whole process from understanding our requirements and helping us get our nie's to knowledge of the area geography, properties, legalities, builders and their build quality. We would recommend Coles without hesitation. Thanks again Simon

STEWART & REBECCA LAMB

Having looked unsuccessfully for a property in Spain for over the last 5 years with many false starts, broken promises & downright untruths we again decided in 2011 to look for a property. This time we found & used a company that delivered on all fronts namely Coles of Andalucía. No issue was too small for this company, Simon & his team covered all bases, offered advice, showed us properties we would not have considered & the attention to detail was first class. Having found our property near Huercal Overa, Simon was again fully involved in ensuring all aspects of the actual purchase moved forward smoothly & on the day of completion was again available to complete what was a hassle free purchase. We were both impressed with Coles of Andalucía, achieving in a couple of months what others has spectacularly failed to do in 5 years. Simon has restored our faith in estate agents in Spain & we absolutely have no hesitancy in recommending his company & staff. Thanks again. Stewart & Rebecca Lamb Satisfied Customers

JON

Simon, Again many thanks for all your help. I never thought I'd say this but purchasing a property in Spain was a hassle free experience thanks to yourself & Maria. We will unreservedly recommend your services to our friends & colleagues. Also thanks for your help with Steve who was a great help taking us to Alicante recently. Kind Regards, Jon.

MALC & JACKIE

Hi Simon, We just wanted to drop you a quick email just to say a very big thank you for your help in finding a Villa, fingers crossed that it will all proceed smoothly from here on. You have made the whole experience extremely enjoyable and helped us the whole time, above and beyond the call of duty. The lawyers were extremely helpful and friendly as well as the bank manager . We would not hesitate in recommending your company to anybody wishing to find themselves a property in the Andalucian region. Many thanks Malc and Jackie.

KEITH & NATALIE JACKSON

Dear Simon, Natalie and I had a great time during our trip to Spain this December. The new apartment was certainly a good investment and has come up to all expectations. We would both like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the assistance we received in purchasing the property. Property Sales and Relocation Specialists is a very apt description of Coles of Andalucia. Having purchased 12 properties in four countries over the past 40 years we can honestly say this was the most stress free, smoothest and least pressurised acquisition we have made. We would have no hesitation in recommending Coles of Andalucia to friends and indeed anyone whishing to buy a property in your area. Your local knowledge of the area, language and key people in the banking and legal fields proved invaluable as did your help in getting Natalie's NIE number. Once again thank you for your very professional, open and friendly approach to property sales, most refreshing and much appreciated. May we wish you and your team continued success in 2011. All the Best Keith and Natalie Jackson. P.S Just to say that Marie at Mundi-Abogados Solicitors has been a real star, apart from the NIE documentation,conveyancing and transfers of payments to the Bank, all of which went off without a hitch, she also arranged for the payments of all deposits and connection fees as well as the necessary stop orders for lights and water, community services etc. They have also proved most helpful in translating documents, taking Natalie to a commissioner of oaths and in attending to a local Will.

STEVE & SANDRA MASSEY

We would just like to say a huge THANK YOU SIMON COLE for after a whole 2 years finding our beautiful villa in Bedar Almeria, and for being extremely patient and putting up with us. We had been on an inspection trip many years ago in Alicante and hated the pressure that we were put through. We restarted our search back in June 07 by looking through Living Spain and found an article about the Cole family and Almeria. We were thankfully drawn by their adventurous tale , From the off start Simon was very informative, courteous and helpful to the end, with not one once of pressure, except to visit many bars ha ha (bet you don’t put that in). After two fast years any of you looking for your dream in this stunning area, take our advise and visit colespain.com you will not regret it. Thanks Mate Steve and Sandra massey

MARK MOLYNEAUX

Hi Simon. Wanted to write a little thank you to you and your staff and compliment your company on a first class service on my recent visit to spain. We have looked at a number of properties in spain and spoken to a few companies regarding buying abroad. What impressed me the most was the no pressure attitude and the willingness to help at the drop of a hat or a phone call to you and your staff. After showing me a number of properties and on all scales gave me a better knowledge of what I wanted to buy and your company had a great vision of what you thought I may like also. We must owe you a small fortune in petrol as not only did you show us the properties, you also shown us the surrounding areas of which was great to get our bearings for getting about and what sort of people and the community we were going to join ! The only downside was Simon supports wolves and we couldn’t have a chat about football on our journey hahaha ! Since returning home to think about it, as you said as you dropped me off at the airport you checked to see if I arrived home safely and again have not put pressure on us in any way to buy from yourselves. We have since recommended you to family and friends who are looking to purchase abroad. I suggest you give you and your staff a massive pay hike and an even bigger pat on the back for a first class service as I run my own business and know what it takes. Kind regards Mark Molyneaux ( Salford England ) To close to old Trafford and not far enough from molineux.

VALERIE & GORDON, ANGUS. SCOTLAND

Last year my husband and I flew to Alicante airport on our first ever property search in Spain. As arranged, Simon met us at the airport and drove us down to our lovely accomodation where we were to spend four nights. We had a lot to pack in to our short stay but with Simon's careful planning and organisation we managed to see a great variety of properties and have plenty time for sightseeing trips in the area .We were on a tight budget and were unsure if we would find anything at all that we really liked in such a short visit. As it happened the very first property we saw we absolutely loved and it was within our price range! Keeping that first one in mind we viewed the other properties Simon had arranged for us. All were within our budget and very nice properties and there were three very strong contenders which we would have been happy with.We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Simon and absolutely never got even an inkling of the hard sell. We bought that first property we saw and were helped all through the process by Simon. The whole experience was stress free due to the guidance and support which was there for us whenever we wanted it. We have just returned from our first trip to our new home and we are delighted with it. While we were over we met up with Simon and were even able to borrow some tools from him! The service we have received from Cole's of Andalucia has been exemplary.We would not hesitate to recommend Simon's company to anyone wishing to buy in Spain.

DAVE & ANN MARTIN. KENT

We contacted Simon before leaving the U.K. with a brief outline of our requirements and although we were only just out of the Costa Blanca he drove up from Almeria on each of the four days that we had prearranged to collect us. He knows the area like the back of his hand and had an excellent range of properties to show us, he was a mine of information on all aspects of moving to and living in Spain. At no time was there any hint of pressure selling. Simon put us completely at our ease. We were not able to close the deal on this trip due to illness. But would not consider using any other agent in future.

MR & MRS C. STAFFORDSHIRE

Having already visited Spain and not found what we were looking for, we decided to look again in Almeria. Simon met us at the airport and spent a day driving us around the area. He then spent two days showing us a wide variety of properties in our preferred location. He also introduced us to builders, solicitors and property maintenance and rental companies. We were waiting for the hard-sell from Simon but none came. Simon found us exactly what we were looking for and we now own our own piece of Spain. We would recommend his services to you!

ED & JACKIE

Earlier this year (March) my wife and I travelled to Spain with a market leader in property sales, to find a property for our use in the near future, then retirement living.We arrived at Murcia airport on a Sunday afternoon, not really knowing anything, but we fortunately were meet by an excellent tour guide in the form of Simon Cole, who after a short introduction drove us the 2 hour journey to our hotel, the journey was a very pleasent one with Simon explaining all the events for the next few days. We also felt under no pressure to buy any property, while being treated in a happy and relaxed manner which made the whole event so much more enjoyable, it was like having a holiday with good friends.In all we think anybody who has the good fortune to use Simon's vast knowledge of the property market and local area will be in very honest and reliable hands.

AL SMITH

Hi my name is Al Smith from Dublin, my wife and i went over to Spain to get our dream Villa, with no experience and a bit dubious about the stories you hear about illegal land and cowboy builders. We went over to Spain and met Simon Cole, he made us feel at ease and brought us to see our dream villa,which we purchased. He was there for us 100%, as a builder wanted to show us land that wasnt his yet!! and Simon gave him a piece of his mind. He got every question answered, as in is our 50% deposit protected? is the builder a top rated one? and is the land his? He got all theses questions anwered for ease of mind for us. One other thing he did for us, was that we liked the Villa from one builder and the land from another, so he got us the plans and organised that our Dream Villa (designed by another builder) be built on the plot of land that we liked. I would highly recommened Simon, he is warm, genuine, knows the area and is there for you 100%.

MAUREEN & DEREK

We found your local knowledge and general all round services excellent it was a real pleasure to be in your company, What we saw and acheived in four days would have taken us months to sort out by our selves, if at all, We will be coming back next year to see you.

MR & MRS R. G. COOPER

Dear Simon My Wife and I were very impressed with the way you collected and returned us to the airport at Almeria. Like many people looking for a home in the Sun, I expect they all feel as if there is going to be an enormous amount of pressure put on them to purchase a property that may not quite be the ideal one they are looking for. Not so with Simon, from the time we left the airport he was requesting information from us as to what we were looking for, which in our case was a new build or failing that, a modern second hand property. All this time we felt he was building up a picture of where we came from and what our standards were, this was of course what he was doing. We were nearly at the Hotel by then so I asked him why so many questions, his reply was, I can now put together hopefully, the areas and properties that I think you would care to view. I said to my wife over our evening meal that I hoped that he was not going to turn out to be a high pressured salesman because that was never going to worked for us. Next morning Simon was in reception to take us on our tour, to our surprise, not to look at any properties but to spend the day showing us the whole area from Coastal to Inland to Banks, Hospitals, Schools, Shopping and Small Town Centres his comments were very pleasant because as he said it is no good coming out here if you are not quite happy with the area, even if you buy a very nice property. The resale properties were in areas, which on the whole, were in the type of location that we liked; we travelled many miles that day and viewed many properties. We also looked at a number of new build sites which Simon said he felt we may not care for some of them but he felt we would benefit from the quality of the builders involved. We did appreciate one particular builder’s quality and layout of their sites, on stating this builder was the quality we were looking for he said he would take us to two of their new build sites which were sectioned into plots ready for sale and build. He stated that the first one would not impress us, he was correct; though the quality of build was good the area was not. We then travelled to the second site. Simon said he felt we would like this area and once again he was right, it was what we were looking for i.e. five minutes from a small town with all their facilities and yet in the countryside. We decided that this was for us and moved to the next sequence of paying a small deposit to secure our plot so that we could progress to the design of our villa. We do thank Simon very much for his patience and his lack of pressure to buy a property that he liked. He was pleasant, able and honest and showed us what he felt we wished to view at all times.

RICHARD & DEBBIE. KENT

We have been dreaming of moving to Spain for many years and that time is finally here.We found Simons website and decided to contact him for a viewing trip. Simon contacted us very quickly to find out our wish list for a property in Spain. We were very apprehensive but there was no need to be. As soon as we were met at the airport Simon proved to be very professional, attentive, kind, patient, good sense of humour, went out of his way to accommodate our needs and showed he was a decent and honest person. At no point did were we put under pressure to make any commitments. Simon was a wealth of knowledge about a whole range of subjects including money transfers, taxes, buying cars etc. Simon helped us obtain our NIE and made the whole process painless buy ensuring we had the correct paperwork, took us to Almería city and held our hands through the process. Simon contacted other estate agencies to ensure that we saw houses that met our requirements. He also arranged a visit to a solicitor and the process of buying in Spain was explained. On our trip we have seen a couple of properties that we are interested in and are now in the process of selling in the UK and we will then be back out to Almería to buy. We will use the services of Simon again and I would recommend to anyone considering a move to Almería to contact Simon".

COLIN AND CATH FERRIER MOJACAR, ALMERIA, SPAIN

Circumstances last year, (2014) forced us to bring forward our decision to sell up and move to Spain for our retirement. We contacted the programme “A Place in the Sun”, and through them we were so fortunate to find a fantastic Estate Agent in Turre, Almeria Spain. “Coles of Andalucia” was our choice from the information supplied by the programme, so we contacted Simon Cole and Tim Vollans there, and from then on we are delighted to say that they could not do enough for us. They listened to our requirements and interpreted our needs perfectly, lining up many and varied properties to view. We are now happily settled in our new Spanish home and enjoying life immensely due to “Coles of Andalucia” wonderful efforts, caring and patient approach, and professionalism. Nothing we asked for was too much trouble for them, from finding one of the best and trustworthy Solicitors to advising on so many other things such as which Bank, buying a car, obtaining services such as Wi-Fi and television reception. We can honestly say that their knowledge and patience really was a massive aid to us. We cannot thank everyone there enough for all that they have done to make our transition as painless and easy as possible. How can we sum them up to bolster our recommendation to use “Coles” above all others, well, here we go”… Caring, Professional, Expert in what they do, trustworthy, honest, very friendly, balanced, extremely knowledgeable, and above all willing to go more than the extra mile to help. One further thing that makes all at “Coles” a superior choice over others is the fact they do not just drop the ball when everything has completed. They are always there for you afterwards to offer help and assistance. Thank you so very much all at “Coles” you have no idea how happy you have made us and we will recommend you to anyone we know who may be moving to this area in Spain. “FANTASTIC!”.

GRAHAM AND JANE TURNER

We have just returned to the UK from the completion of our house purchase in Spain. From our initial contact with Simon Cole our house search has been an extremely enjoyable experience and hassle free. Simon and his team have proved to be professional, honest and knowledgeable. The whole process from viewing and deciding on the right property right through to the choice of solicitor, Maria Maroto, and the foreign exchange, GCEN, was painless. We had each step of the way explained thoroughly and we were able to complete the whole process with only a few emails. Even the smallest details were dealt with promptly and efficiently by Simon. We can not thank everyone involved enough and we are now looking forward to enjoying our time in our new home.

NICOLA

Just to add to the many great testimonials that I saw on your website: When we met Simon and Tim 2 years ago, our somewhat jaded faith was finally restored in that hitherto elusive creature - the honest, trustworthy estate agent! Simon was a joy to travel around with. He was a mine of information and his enthusiasm was infectious. We laughed, yet learned a great deal from him as together we scoured Andalusia for, and eventually found, our dream place in the sun. He was helpful right up until the contracts were exchanged and the keys handed over, and we very much got the sense that he genuinely cared about his clients, be they vendor or purchaser. It was also clear that he was determined that his side of the job would be carried out efficiently and "correctly" - a word he used with passion throughout our travels with him. Even though we are no longer looking for a property in Spain, I still look on the Coles website because I find it keeps refreshingly updated, and there is often a snippet of interest to anyone who is keen to learn about the way things work in Spain, be it on a large or small scale! Please send our kind regards on. With best wishes, Nicola

MARK & KAREN ANDREWS

Many thanks for all the help received and with the final purchase. The advice from your team and from your brochure proved invaluable throughout. Every one that is recommended in your brochure has not only proved to be professional but also extremely helpful and friendly with other matters that we have needed help with. All in all an excellent experience for Karen and myself, for what has been a life changing decision.
