Great personal service

Great personal service from the moment we arrived at the office with a half baked idea of what we wanted if we were to move our home to Quesada.

This continued through to completion and beyond.

Highly recommended.

I would just like to thank John & Sue for making the sale of my apartment so easy and stress free.

They go above and beyond what you would expect from an estate agent.

Nothing is too much trouble.

In my humble opinion you wont find a better estate in this area.

Exceptional service throughout - Finding our dream home in Spain

We - John and Sue go back many years from their time in the UK and we have always met up when we are visiting Los Alacazares , a place we love. John has been looking for a villa for us for a few years in the area around LA up to Pillar or Campoverde. A tough ask, but Sapphire kept on point and found us a fantastic villa in Campoverde.
John helped us with the hotel, picked us up from the airport and with Sue, looked after us throughout the 3 day stay as we viewed properties. 
From start to finish, John, Sue and the team have made what can be a stressful time a lot easier than we ever imagined and even policed everything when we went back to the UK. 
The team will help you with and organise all the things that are required to buy a property here, NIE applications, bank accounts, currency conversion, insurance quotes and legal matters.  They are also there following your purchase to help you out, should you require it or recommend a tradesman, sort out parking or car purchases.
Another huge thanks is to Alfred - the lawyer and only one I like lol - when they say "don't worry" trust me, don't worry - let him take control and he will make sure everything is taken care of. 
We would not hesitate to recommend them for anyone looking to buy a property in the area.
Thank you so much to John, Sue and Alfred your advice, support and for helping us to find our dream villa.

Hi John

Just a quick note to say a huge thank you to you and all the team for the everything you have done regarding my purchase and subsequent sale of my property in Formentera

It seems an absolute age since we first met at the exhibition in London all those years ago, and I have always regarded our relationship as much as friendship as well as professional

Indeed I will stay in touch and maintain the link we have over facebook and will most definitely take you up on that threat of a beer or two whenever I am in the area again

Take care and please, don't ever stop Moon stoomping - it brings tears to my eyes laughing mate

All the best

Professional, approachable & knowledgeable

We recently had the pleasure of working with Sapphire Properties to sell a family member’s villa in Ciudad Quesada.

From the outset the Sapphire team were professional, approachable, knowledgeable and flexible in the support provided in the process to achieve a speedy sale. Sapphire was able to introduce us to a team legal and financial services which provided peace of mind as we are UK based and selling remotely.

From sign off the advert was live within hours and the team responsive by email, telephone and WhatsApp to feedback from viewings on potential buyers.

Special thanks to John in quickly understanding the property and sale needs which provided reassurance in his skills and capabilities to advocate during negotiations. 5-star credit to a fantastic team, thanks to all at Sapphire. And if you are thinking of selling you are strongly advised chat to this team.

Silborne & Pamela Stephenson

Many thanks John, Susan and Melanie

Me and my wife recently purchased our property from Sapphire.  John Clark the owner has supported us throughout the moving process from start to finish.  

John has established strong relationships with a wide range of support services in Spain.  He introduced us to an English speaking Lawyer and took us to a Spanish Bank, to open an account.

Despite John always being very busy, he would always endeavour to respond to our enquiries.

Sapphire Properties are very professional; the agency is run with honesty and integrity. 

We would recommend Sapphire Properties to anyone wanting to make a permanent move to Spain or simply wanting to purchase a holiday home in Spain. 

We also received help and support from Melanie one of John’s staff member.

Many thanks John, Susan and Melanie

Fantastic service from all the team

We arrived in Cuidad Quesada and approached Sapphire Properties on a recommendation from a friend. We really were not disappointed.

The service the team provides was first class throughout the whole process. We didn’t know what kind of property we wanted and Melanie was fantastic showing us the different types of properties available and set us up with a few appointments to see some and we managed to whittle down to what type of property we wanted. Melanie then went and researched and found some properties that met our needs.

From signing up to then organising the exchange, helping us find a solicitor, helping us sort out NIE numbers, bank accounts etc.

John really does go the extra mile to keep you supported and updated on progress. A first class service from a great team and we would highly recommend them to anyone considering purchasing a property in the area.


Paul Taylor & Helen Bradford (February 8th, 2022)
Graham & Jane McEwing

The team are professional, friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them.

We took a trip to Ciudad Quesada in August 2021 with a view to buying a property and met a few estate agents in the two weeks that we were there. 

A couple of the properties were interesting and then we visited Sapphire Properties in the last three days of our trip and noticed that they had a two-bedroom, two-bathroom villa for sale.

On speaking to John, he arranged for Melanie to show us around the villa.

My wife immediately fell in love with the villa and placed an offer into the seller which was accepted.

When we came back to the UK, John, Sue and Melanie always kept in contact with us either by phone or email to inform us of the progress of the sale and also recommended a Locksmith to change all locks, Wi-Fi provider and any other tradesmen we may require.

The team are professional, friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them.

From start to finish, John and the team took a lot of the stress out of buying a property in Spain. 

We would not hesitate to recommend them for anyone looking to buy a property in the area.

Thank you so much to John, Sue and Melanie for making us feel welcome, your advice, support and for helping us to find our new holiday home in Spain.

Best wishes

Sincere Thanks to All the Team at Sapphire

Many thanks to all at Sapphire for seeing us through the whole house purchase process.  For initial viewings John was very accommodating to our restricted time in Spain.

Once we had chosen a new build property Sapphire walked us through the process of getting the contract signed as well as sorting out a lawyer (also very helpful at every turn), bank account, NIE, money transfer company etc.

Unfortunately Covid hit at this point so the house completion was delayed and then we could not travel to Spain to take the keys.

Throughout all this delay John and the team continued to be patient and to help at every opportunity.
Finally we could get to Spain and John was ready with all the keys and documents for the house.  Even after we took possession Sapphire continued to provide support to help resolve some minor build issues with the builders.

So overall, I would recommend Sapphire to anyone thinking of buying in Spain who wants a reasonably hassle free process from start to finish.

Quinton & Celia Sodhy (January 17th, 2022)
Jerry & Jan Baker

1st Class Service throughout the process

If you are looking for a company who understand customer service – look no further. The process of buying property in Spain is complex and Sapphire Properties guided us from start to finish.

Sapphire Properties led by John and Sue leave nothing to chance – understanding our requirements they created a list of matching properties and fixed appointments to view.

With a tight timescale, we saw in excess of 20 properties over3 days and shortlisted for second visits. Once we had decided on our favourite, they introduced us to a Currency Conversion company, a Lawyer, a Spanish Bank and an Insurance company, all of which provided us with excellent service.

Providing an unbiased but informative guidance really helped us consider the positives as well as any compromises for each of the shortlisted properties and come to the right conclusion.

Thank you very much John, Sue and the team at Sapphire – we could not have achieved what we have, particularly in the timescale, without your valuable help.


Jerry & Jan Baker (December 1st, 2021)

Second to none

Hi John.

Just a few words letting you and the girls at Sapphire know what a fantastic job you did for us in purchasing our first place in sunny Spain.

The whole process was made so easy by you introducing us to the lawyer, the insurance as well as the money transfer people. The way you handle a sale is second to none and you should be very proud.

We are now enjoying our holidays in our new home in the sun and can’t wait to meet up for a beer.

Many many thanks.

Darren Debbie Chad & Jayne.

John & Jules Millar

Absolutely delighted

Absolutely delighted with our new villa and can’t thank the Sapphire team enough for their help in making our dream come true. 

John, Mel and Sue couldn’t have been more supportive and helpful and really took the time to find us our perfect home. 

There was never any pressure and they were equally happy to show us properties from other estate agents which blew us away. 
We have found all their recommendations for other aspects of house buying/moving  to be completely sound, making the whole process more straightforward than we imagined. 

Highly recommend

John & Jules Millar (November 11th, 2021)
Paul & Helen Fairbairn

A BIG thank you!

A big thank you to John, Sue and the team at Sapphire Properties for guiding us through the process of buying our new home from the start to the completion of the sale. They all did a very professional job.

John took us for a few viewings and was very patient when we changed the goalposts from our original requirements, but still came up with perfect house.

Even after the sale, they were still taking care of us with their after sales service.

I would highly recommend Sapphire to anyone selling or buying a property.

Tony Wonfor

Superb and Professional

Thank you very much John and Sue.

In these very uncertain times, there's lots of concern as to whether you're doing the right thing but Sapphire properties have been absolutely fantastic in selling our property.

You've also gone above and beyond having to deal with what I would describe as a VERY difficult buyer.

You guys have been superb and professional all the way through the process and my wife and I can't thank you enough. It has been difficult enough having to sell at a distance from the UK but we couldn't have asked for more from an agent.

Thank you so much!! ðŸ™‚

Stu & Vic Pulcella

Sapphire Properties are hands down the most helpful agency

Sapphire Properties are hands down the most helpful agency team we’ve dealt with when purchasing a house. 

John, Sue, and the rest of the team have helped us all the way through the purchase from showing us properties to introducing us to solicitors, translators, builders, gardeners, and schools. 

During Covid we were stuck in the UK and we feel they went one step further to ensure our stress levels stayed as low as possible.

If we ever buy again, we would use Sapphire and would recommend them to anyone who wants to move to the area.

You were there every step of the way

John, Sue and Christine, 

Thank you very much for all help in finding our new home in Spain. We appreciate all the running around you did with us, Janet realised she was hard work, but we got there in the end!

You were there every step of the way especially with legal requirements. 

We would not hesitate recommending Sapphire Properties for anyone looking for their house in sun.

Many thanks again.

My purchase went through without a hitch.

I was recommended Sapphire Properties by a close friend who had lived in Quesada for many years. 

After John emailed me about the service, he and Sue offered I was very impressed, they guided me through all the pros and cons of buying in Spain.

When I flew out to view the property I was greeted at the airport and taken to view the property. 

Appointments had been made to see a solicitor, exchange currency and open a bank account; they even reserved a hotel room for me for the week. 

My purchase went through without a hitch and I owe it all to Sapphire Properties. I am now asking them to rent out my property as I know it´s in very safe hands. 

Many thanks to John, Sue and Christine.

If you buy through Sapphire Properties, you will be making a very wise choice.

We had a smooth purchase in just over 3 weeks.

We had the pleasure of meeting John, Sue and Chris at Sapphire Properties recently when we decided to look to buy a villa here in the Ciudad Quesada area. The team are professional, friendly and nothing is too much trouble.  John was very knowledgeable of the areas around Ciudad Quesada during our viewings.

We were very fortunate that out of the 6 viewings we had on the day, we found our dream property.
We had a smooth purchase in just over 3 weeks.

From start to finish, John and the team have made what can be a stressful time a lot easier than we ever imagined.  

The team will help you with and organise all the things that are required to buy a property here, NIE applications, bank accounts, currency conversion, insurance quotes and legal matters.  They are also there following your purchase to help you out, should you require it or recommend a tradesman.

We would not hesitate to recommend them for anyone looking to buy a property in the area.

Thank you so much to John, Sue and Chris for making us feel welcome, your advice, support and for helping us to find our dream villa.

The nicest people you could wish to meet

We had been searching for a house in Spain for more than 2 years and Sapphire have been with us throughout this time including 2 inspection trips.

John spent days driving us around the area and remained cheerful and helpful at all times.

We finally found our perfect house and even after the sale Sapphire were there if we needed help. I would highly recommend Sapphire and John, Sue and Christine are the nicest, most helpful people you could wish to meet.

Give them a call, you wont be disappointed

My name is Don Bishop, my wife and I have just moved to the Costa Blanca from America.

We found Sapphire Properties by research online, comparing a family business with larger global companies.

We chose Sapphire and have had no regrets, they helped us through the complete process, starting with property information and areas based on our requirements, through property visits, builder discussions and help with relocating to a new country.

It hasn't stopped there with post sales help with any aspect of settling in a new country.

Give them a call you won’t be disappointed.

Keith & Sue Sawdon

Sapphire - a real gem

“Sapphire” a real gem of estate agencies.  From the moment we walked into the office we were made to feel welcome. John spent most of the day showing us around properties in Quesada until we found “the one”.  Nothing is too much trouble for John and his friendly professional  team, they really care about their clients.  

We were guided through the entire scary legal process and even driven around to open bank account, have photo’s taken for NIE application etc.  

A big “thank you” to John, Sue, Chris and Jackie, recommended without hesitation.

Paul Rainey

Extremely Knowledgeable

I met John and the team in 2017 when my wife and I were looking to buy a property in Spain.

We found them to be extremely knowledgeable about all things required when entering in to what to us was a bit of unknown territory. We were escorted to different areas around the Mar Menor and eventually selected a property which we have no doubt that without the assistance of Sapphire Properties we would never have found.

Very Personal Service

I cannot recommend Sapphire Properties highly enough. They consistently went above & beyond with their service, far exceeding what I expected. They listened to our needs and spent time with my family to deliver a very personal service. They have made the daunting process of purchasing a property in Spain effortless steering us in the direction of affiliated professionals

I would highly recommend Sapphire Properties.

Fantastic from start to finish

An absolutely fantastic service from start to finish. 

All the friendly staff at Sapphire were always on hand to help.

I viewed various properties and when I found the one I wanted Sapphire were there to assist.

Sapphire could not of helped me enough.

They were in constant contact with me throughout the process, and when they gave me the keys once I had completed it was like my dream had come true.


Oh and the bottle of champagne went down a treat.

Once again I want to say a big thanks to everyone at Sapphire properties in Quesada, you have made me and my family very happy.

Top notch

You are all the tops in our books.

I can't tell you how much Sapphire have done for us, before and after the completion. John has been a diamond. They don't forget you once the completion has gone through, they are on hand to recommend everything from restaurants and quality workmen. 
John even drove us around the area pointing out various shops and restaurants etc. 
Nothing is too much trouble. 
Seriously if you are looking for a top quality, honest, friendly and professional estate agent you can't go wrong with Sapphire. I can't thank John, Sue and the rest of the gang enough. 
You are all the tops in our books. 
Lots of love Bev and Paul Thompson

We cannot thank the staff of Sapphire enough for finding us our dream property, from Cindy who found us lots of properties even when we kept changing our criteria, to Mark who drove us to all the properties we wanted to see, to John who kept us calm during the negotiations and last,  but not least Christine who always had a smile when we came to the office. 

Professional, patient, organised are only some of the words we could use.  Cannot recommend them enough.

Daiva & Daniele Mackeviciene

Thank you for your hard work!

Dear Cindy,

I hope you have been well.

My mum has asked me a few times to write a review for Mark, to thank him for all of his hard work and effort in helping her to view and buy the property.

So I do apologise for a late reply, work was very busy and with Christmas coming, it was hard to do it as soon as she came back.

But what she wanted to say is that she is incredibly thankful for both you and Mark in helping her to arrange accommodation for the viewing trip, and help her to view properties, seeing as her budget was relatively lower than most people go for.

She also wanted to say that Mark’s help has been exceptional and that he helped her to understand the location and environment of where the property is based well, and went out of his way to show her and her friend around, as well as showing her the Guardamar beach.

Both me and her wanted to thank you for your handwork as well, and I wanted to thank you for getting back to me so quickly about everything, as this was a very new experience for me as well, and it was a bit difficult that I could not go and view with my mum, but you made everything very clear, convenient and reassuring as well as giving me the peace of mind and taking care of her needs. I also want to thank you for taking the time to explain everything to my mum and making sure that she understands everything as language could have been a bit of an issue for her.

Thank you for all that you’ve done to help us in this journey of buying a property in Spain, and if me and my mum come across anyone who are interested in buying in Spain, we shall definitely recommend Sapphire properties to them!

Merry Christmas and have a happy holiday!

Kind Regards,


Daiva & Daniele Mackeviciene (December 19th, 2017)

Wonderful service

Purchasing a property in Spain can be very stressful, however, not if you purchase through Sapphire Properties. From meeting Mark Allan at the airport, we explained exactly what we wanted and yes Sapphire delivered finding us our perfect property.!!

They are English owned estate agents, with some of their team speaking fluent Spanish their customer services is exceptional and they are with you all step of the way.

Big thank you to all staff but especially Mark and Cindy without doubt we would recommend your company to anyone who is wishing to fill their dream.

Don't delay contact Sapphire on

Hi Cindy,

Well having lived in cloud cuckoo land for 13 years, plodding along enjoying a sun filled life, we have now been thrown into the hurly, burly land of selling our dream home in Crevellente.

The process of visit, inspection, photographs, valuation,contracts and placing the property on line was completed expertly by Kristina, and all in a matter of days.

We could not recommend them highly enough, and they were a breath of fresh air!

Dear Sapphire

Nicky and I would like to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude for the amazing service you afforded us during our search for a property in Spain. Brad looked after us and he expounded your ethos perfectly. When we contacted Christine initially she told me that their goal was not just to find us a property that we were happy with, but to find us a home we would be delighted with. Sapphire listened to everything thing we said and went the extra mile to ensure they found the perfect property for US! We could not recommend them highly enough, and they were a breath of fresh air after some less than satisfying agencies. We felt comfortable and knew Brad was listening to us and within a single day we had found our dream home in Spain. The after sales care is also second to none and we will be forever grateful to the whole Sapphire team for their friendly and professional care and attention.

Thank you so much

Siobhan and Nicky.

I am from Norway where the temperature is somewhat different to Spain, and I had decided this is where I wanted to be.

We had been searching the website looking at areas and properties in Spain, at this point I viewed a number of agents and one of those was Sapphire Properties. I decided to call Sapphire and spoke to a lady called Christine who I found to be most helpful, polite and friendly. She was very informative and nothing was too much trouble. Christine sent me a number of properties for me to consider initially. At this point I thought the Lola style property was my preferred choice. Christine encouraged me to visit the office and she would arrange for me to be shown the area and other property options, Christine´s total re-assurance was one of the reasons I decided to visit Sapphire. It was lovely to meet Christine and the team, and to be introduced to Peter. I spent a week in Peter´s company and with his help, knowledge and guidance I found that my ideal property, which turned out to be a semi-detached villa. During my time spent with Peter we became firm friends, so much so that it felt natural to ask Peter to be my best man at my forthcoming wedding, which I am pleased to say he accepted.

I would also like to recommend Sapphire Properties estate agent.


I would also like to recommend Sapphire Properties estate agent.

Even though we didn't in the end buy our property though them I must say John and his team were very helpful and more than happy that we found what we wanted through another agent ,even helping with pointing us in the right directions when we needed help.

You always here about the negative side of some agents so I felt it only right to pass on our positive dealings.

Would highly recommend the team there at Sapphire to anyone

Cindy, Pete and team.

This is our second meeting with the team at Sapphire. We met them first last year when they showed us around some properties and areas. Great friendly bunch who put you under no pressure at all. We recently went back out to Spain after selling our home here in the Uk. Again the Team at Sapphire Properties were very helpful, informative and again no pressure well felt in deciding where we wanted to live. The team put us in touch with a lawyer and took us to open a bank account and get our NIA numbers. Would highly recommend the team there at Sapphire to anyone. Thank you so much for your help :-)

Sapphire are professionals, extremely helpful and friendly. Highly recommended

Dear Cindy and Sapphire Properties,

We would  like to say thank you for your help in finding our new house in Spain.

Here is our testimonial for your website.

"We used Sapphire Properties to purchase our villa in Quesada. We would highly recommend Peter Taylor who spent lots of time looking after us, showing us Quesada and helping to find our dream house. Once we made our choice, Sapphire organized meetings with the bank, lawyer and notary - we just came in and signed papers. Everything went smoothly, no stress or problems.

Sapphire is a professionals, extremely helpful and friendly. Highly recommend!"

Sincerely yours, 

Kejser family

Property Purchase

Hi John, Pete & The Team

Just a short note, to say thank you so much for going above and beyond to make our property purchase not only easy but a pleasurable experience!  We are so glad we chose Sapphire, the service is second to none, from the moment Cindy contacted us to the minute Pete collected us from the airport, through to the stress free completion.

We would whole heartedly recommend you to anyone purchasing a property in Spain.

Many thanks

If it wasn't for Sapphire Properties we would probably have returned home without seeing the home we had hoped for.

Hi John,

Just a few words of thanks to you and all your team at Sapphire Properties for looking after myself and Liz on our recent house hunting expedition.

As you know, your colleague Peter took us out to view a number of properties last Friday in the Quesada area, this was after spending the previous 4 days visiting over 25 properties in various regions with 4 other agents, which we found to be extremely exhausting and disappointing, to say the very least, as the calibre of properties they showed us, did not meet up with our expectations, far from it.

It truly was a far more enjoyable experience spending Friday with Peter in the Quesada area, an area that other agents had told us to avoid.Thank goodness we did not listen to the other agents and instead gave Peter the opportunity to show us what he had available in Quesada that matched our remit.

What a difference from the previous 4 days, Peter soon demonstrated that he had "taken on board" our requirements and took us to see several properties that he felt would be in contention to become our new home.

However, not only did Peter take us to view properties, he took us in and around Quesada in order to give us a feel for the whole area as we did not know the area.

Within a short time Liz and I both new that Quesada was the place we wanted to live, and not only that, Peter also found us a lovely home in a lovely, quiet area of the town.

We are both absolutely delighted that we have had our offer for the house accepted and are looking forward to making our permanent move to Quesada within the next 3 weeks.

If it wasn't for Sapphire Properties we would probably have returned home without seeing the home we had hoped for.

Please pass on our best wishes to everyone of your professional team, especially Peter, who has gone way beyond just "doing his job" by showing us around various areas of Quesada during his day off.

It truly is unbelievable, that not only have we found our new home we have also found new friends yourself and staff included.


Many thanks again John to you and all your team, Best wishes, Ivan & Liz.

See you all soon.

Thank you very much indeed for all your help

Hi Peter,

Hope you are well and enjoying warm sunshine.  It’s been cold, wet, snowy, windy and now sunny here.

Thank you very much indeed for all your help, advice and kindness turning what could have been a very difficult and problematic week into an absolute pleasure.

You made the whole process very easy, were a font information and helped us clarify our needs and priorities. Thanks too for sorting out the door lock when I managed to lock us out of the appartment in Rafal.

We really enjoyed our evening meal with you and to cap it all you found us a superb house.

We can’t thank you enough. We can’t stop smiling.

Please pass on our thanks to John and the team and to Christine in particular who made all the arrangements for our viewings etc.

We intend to come back to Quesada in February or March to assess what we need for the house and catch up with you.

Thanks for everything!  Take care.

The service we have received from all the staff has been faultless

When we started to look for a property in Spain, we contacted several estate agents, but chose Sapphire Properties due to the friendly staff. Our relationship with Cindy, in particular, has developed into a friendship even after we have bought our holiday home. 

The service we have received from all the staff has been faultless, from setting up the viewing trip, showing us around properties, guiding us through the buying process,  and  dealing with the legalities such as  banks, solicitors, and insurances.  

When we have needed help or advise, Sapphire Properties have never failed us, and even now, whenever we are in Quesada we make a point of nipping into the office to say Hello.  

We have recommended Sapphire Properties to some friends who are interested in buying a Spanish property, and certainly use them again. 


P.S. Steve ordered the Box - thank you for helping.

just returned home to the UK after an enjoyable and successful trip to find our dream retirement home

Dear John, Sue, and all the team at Sapphire Properties,

As we have just returned home to the UK after an enjoyable and successful trip to find our dream retirement home, we wanted to express our thanks and gratitude for the warm welcome, help and guidance given to us by you and your team.

We had spent a few years planning and looking for a property in the area for our retirement home, we visited the region and looked at various areas on each visit, so were pleased to find a company that knew the market and region so well.

Nothing was too much trouble, the help you gave us in finding and opening a bank account,  and a fantastic English speaking Lawyer was invaluable. 

You delayed a family event because we wanted to view more properties one particular day , and even gave us a lift back to the airport on departure day! 

Fantastic Service.

So a big big thank you once again from us !

You have our telephone numbers, we would pleased to speak to anyone who would like to talk to us about your services.

Kind Regards

Paul Rangecroft & Carole Peters

We can guarantee you will be pleased with your choice of broker

Fulfill your dreams with Sapphire Properties!

Last year we bought our dream home in Spain. One thing I am sure of is that we would not have found the perfect house, in the right area, so quickly, without professional help from a serious company like Sapphire properties. Not everyone has had the same experience as us, that we know for sure.

The team were really just great all the way,  giving us breathing space, no pressure, and telling us to take time to think it over.

They were quick at understanding what we were looking for, and good at finding the right houses to see.

After the takeover in November, we still had some questions about different things that pop up, and SAPPHIRE has always been there for us if we needed help with something we didn’t understand.

So to all you who are considering buying a dream place: BUY SAFELY WITH SAPPHIRE PROPERTIES! We can guarantee you will be pleased with your choice of broker.


Oppfyll dine drømmer med Sapphire properties!

I fjor kjøpte vi vårt drømmehus i Spania. En ting jeg er sikker på er at vi ikke ville funnet det perfekte huset, i det rette området, så fort, uten profesjonell hjelp fra et seriøst firma som Sapphire properties. Ikke alle har hatt samme opplevelse som oss, det er helt sikkert.

Allan var virkelig helt topp hele veien, han gav oss pusterom, presset ikke på, og han var opptatt av at vi tok oss tid til å tenke.

Han forstod fort hva vi var ute etter, og var flink til å finne de rette husene å se på.

Etter overtagelsen i november har vi stadig hatt noen spørsmål om forskjellige ting som dukker opp, og Allan har aldri vært vanskelig å be om hjelp.

Så til alle dere som vurderer å kjøpe et drømmested. KJØP TRYGT MED SAPPHIRE PROPERTIES. Vi kan garantere at dere blir fornøy med valg av megler.

Med hilsen

A daunting task, was managed so well and so fast.

Dear All

Just a quick note to say many thanks for your totally invaluable help, kindness, professionalism and patience with my property purchase.I have already recommended your services to two of my friends, who, knowing me as they do, were so surprised that what at first seemed quite a daunting task, was managed so well and so fast. My thanks somehow seem quite inadequate but are very sincere.If ever I can return your help, please do not hesitate to ask.

Kind Regards

We found the whole experience to be an immense pleasure.

My husband and I have no hesitation in recommending Sapphire properties to any one who is considering the purchase of a property on the Costa Blanca.

Having  purchased our property from Plan, in November 2001, we were highly delighted with the friendly and efficient service, provided by the company. Nothing was too much trouble for them, from meeting us at the airport, to taking us to open bank accounts, and making appointments for us to meet with the Notary. They even took us to view furniture stores so that we could get a feel for what packages were on offer.

We were taken to view a selection of properties which fulfilled our personal requirements,and which were also within our price range.

We felt that we were able to view each property for as long as we wanted to. There was no pressure  to rush us onto a next viewing.

We found the whole experience to be an immense pleasure.

We are now the proud owners of our dream home in the sun, and are counting the days until we can finally retire and spend most of the year in our perfect ideal home.

More recently Sapphire also provided a similar, high quality service, for our daughter and her husband. They too were more than satisfied with the service provided, and are now proud owners of an apartment at Playa Flamenca.

Would recommend both hers and your services to anyone

Good morning All

I hope this finds you well, just a short note to thank you for the sale of the house which went through, but especially for introducing us to Marie Carmen who has been the most helpful person we have had the pleasure to deal with in Spain, nothing seems too much trouble to her and we would recommend both hers and your services to anyone.

Once again thanks to all concerned.

Nothing was ever too much trouble

I would like to thank everyone at Sapphire Properties for the expertise and help in securing a lovely property just on the outskirts of Quesada.

The whole experience was dealt with very professionally and nothing was ever too much trouble.

All advice was always very sound and this has continued even after the purchase had gone through. Sapphire have a great many contacts who can help in all areas of purchasing a property

If you want to deal with a professional company, who really do know how to treat people, then I would recommend the team at Sapphire without hesitation.

The whole transaction could not have gone smoother or easier

My wife and I had planned to purchase a property in Spain and we attended several property exhibitions in the UK however the only company that showed real interest in what WE wanted were Sapphire Properties. We were quite determined that we would buy a property that fulfilled our requirements and we were delighted that when we did our inspection tour the properties on offer were as we had requested.

We purchased a property whilst on the tour as we felt at ease with the honesty and  integrity shown by the company and at no time was there any hint of pressure and the after sales department has been first class.
It is a little worrying to put your trust in someone in a different country but I would have no hesitation in recommending Sapphire to any potential purchaser, the whole transaction could not have gone smoother or easier.

It was our first visit to mainland Spain and after a week we felt as though we knew the place and it was all thanks to the team at Sapphire. The were very patient and nothing was too much trouble. We never expected to buy a property on the first visit, but with the guidance and knowledge we felt quite at ease to do so. We can assure you  we will highly recommend you to all our aquaintances.

Many thanks

Thanks once again

Hi Cindy,

Just wanted to say thanks once again to you and all of Sapphire Properties for everything.  I was quite impressed with the professionalism and authentic desire to answer all my questions and ensure my purchase went well.

No matter how many times we travel or how vast our experiences are abroad, we are still away from our home. So, I always appreciate when people whether from business or personal are there to extend a warm welcome.
