Werner Rudi Hacker

As an expatriate living in Spain and recently having to sell a property and return to the U.k. I would like to make the following sincere comments regarding VIP. Never in my long experience with estate agents have I ever had  such excellent and cheerful service when selling a property with some of the  problems which can and indeed did occur  over this sale. Dealing with all  the various authorities was  expertly handled in Spanish by Mr Howlett and his assistant leaving me free of worry and confident of the good outcome which occurred in a remarkably short time.

Hi Stephen, Just wanted to say one last thanks for your handling of the sale of my property in Los Atalayones. I have sold a number of properties and this sale was by far the least problematic from start to finish. I was very surprised that a buyer was found and sale completed within a six to 7 week period. All the best for the future. John Palmer

Steven is a genuine guy who will steer you in the right direction every time. If you are buying or selling, I'd highly recommend Steven!
