Who We Are
V.I.P Almeria has been established in Mojacar Playa since 2005. We offer more than just selling property. The company was formed as a combined venture between Stephen Howlett (Sales and Administration) and Victoria Venturini (Sales and Marketing). We have three children together (Two born here) and have experienced many different aspects from local integration to schooling since our permanent move from Dublin, Ireland to Mojacar in 2003.
We found that our life experience was just as important as our professional. Community and lifestyle is important, so as parents, we ensure to be involved in the events and sponsor / promote many sports and youth events encouraging personal development.
Known as a very pro-active and progressive agency who works for the client's benefit, V.I.P Almeria can offer you all types of properties ranging from new build to resales and distress sale opportunities. We hold collaborations with developers and banks to offer key ready products at vastly reduced prices.
2020 is projected to be a good time to consider Spain as a second home destination. We are here to present sound, straight talking advice. International buyers make up 23.4% of the property market and the population of Mojácar as an example has grown by 2,000 (41%) since 2000.
We are AIPP regulated and inscribed in the "Registro Mercantile de Almeria". CIPS - Certified International Property Specialist, we are also a member of the National Association of REALTORS® with NRDS ID: 061237049.
VIP Almeria have been awarded the title in the past 3 years as ‘Leading Real Estate Adviser, Almeria, Spain’, No matter how big, successful or renowned a business may be, it goes without saying that, away from its own pool of talent and expertise, there will always be a network of trusted advisers behind the scenes helping to inform, guide and shape the way in which it operates. This is in addition to the award, December 2016 when we were given the title, Real Estate Firm of the Year 2016, this award was set up to recognise the firms which are among the best and brightest when it comes to real estate, able to flourish in this dynamic sector.

Nice Friendly and Excellent Customers service
I have know Steve for a few years and always recommend him to friends who are looking to buy in Mojacar. Steve has so much knowledge about the industry and Mojacar that I would be surprised if he couldn't help you to buy or sell. Steve has just sold our apartment and he put so much time and effort into the viewing and the actual sale process, we feel we can leave everything in his hands as he is totally trustworthy and professional. We regard Steve as a friend who will go the extra mile to satisfy you. Another important thing is that he communicates well which is really important when your in the UK and you have to rely on someone for their expertise and guidance, he always returns your calls and emails so you know what is happening. The staff at VIP are also friendly and helpful. To sum it up use VIP you won't be disappointed. Marion and Glyn Elshaw
VIP came recommended to us by Olive Properties / Bedar. Having posted our apartment on the web in mid March, we were astonished to find that Steve had secured us a deal, dealt with all the buraucracy and lodged our funds to our bank in less than 12 weeks. He was simply amazing - like a whirlwind in how he just took the reins and jumped every hurdle on our behalf. He just took any element of stress out of our hands and managed the entire process with gusto. Well done Steve and we wish you every success at VIP.
Thanks so much to Steve and Vicky from VIP Almeria for making what had the essence to be a very stressful experience into being very enjoyable and stress free. Steve was nothing but helpful and genuine in helping us with our choice - and we weren't an easy sell haha! From start to finish nothing was too much and we were made to feel like his only customers, I would definitely recommend VIP Almeria for anyone's property needs in Mojocar. A special thanks too to Vicky, as without her gentle touch and quick but level headed assistance thing definitely wouldn't have went so smoothly. A definite 5 stars from us, thanks again guys :)
We approached V.I.P Almeria when we considered selling our villa in Mojacar. The summer is here so we thought maybe in the next year it would sell. Steven came up and helped us with our paperwork, made arrangements for taxes, photographed the house and even made a video. He came back within a few days and said he had an offer, we had not even done a viewing yet, and two weeks later we had sold. Steven made the whole process so easy, took his time with us and right through the signing and afterwards is still there for us. We know what it is to be V.I.P Client. We recommend V.I.P Almeria.
I cannot thank you enough Steven James Howlett for looking after my mum & dad's sale of their villa. To any seller or buyer who reads this just contact Steve and you will understand true service.
