To Anthony & Sally Bloom at Spanish Property Sales 2016.
For all those seeking sound property advice in Javea.
I first made contact with Anthony and Sally via their Website in May 2015. I was interested in purchasing a Villa in the Costa Blanca but had not visited that area. Coming from Australia buying a property in Spain was not going to be easy.
Sally called me not long after and went through the type of things I wanted in a Spanish Villa. Sally showed incredible knowledge of the area plus the many attributes that needed to be considered eg direction the house faced, location to the beach and township of either Javea or Moraira.
After reviewing many properties on the Website I narrowed a list down to 25/30 properties. Sally very quickly responded with a detailed critique of each property. This allowed me to narrow my list down to 12. After many phone calls and emails I decided to make a visit and see what the properties looked like in person rather than the illusion of grandeur that sometimes comes from real estate photos.
I met Anthony in September 2015 with a view to use the trip as more of an education for me, not necessarily looking to actually buy. Sally and Anthony were completely ok with this. I visited about 12 properties which were all along the lines of what I had discussed with Anthony. There were 2 properties that I thought were what I was looking for but as I said earlier I was not on a buying trip but getting educated with the area.
After returning to Australia I kept in contact with both Anthony and Sally, exchanging more info regarding the 2 properties and keeping tabs on them to see if there were any interested parties going into the Spanish Winter months.
After Christmas I decided to visit Sally and Anthony again to take a second look at the original 2 properties and another 10 just to make sure that I was happy to focus on the 2 I had identified. Sally again was most helpful in compiling information on the additional properties I would see with Anthony.
At the end of the review of these properties I indicated to Anthony that the property I really liked was the one he had identified as a very rare property in the area of Tosalet. He made an appointment with his recommended Lawyer for the Sunday so we could get the ball rolling. Anthony joined me at the Lawyers. I was very impressed with Juan and his ability to make things seem easy to accomplish even though I lived in Australia.
Long story short Sally and Anthony were invaluable throughout the process of buying the property. A point to note is that the purchase was done completely via Powers of Attorney given to the lawyer. After settlement I returned to Spain and Anthony had everything organised with gardeners, pool maintenance, letting agent, decorators, locksmiths etc.
After meeting with them all over a two week period we agreed what was required and cemented our relationship. In hindsight there is no way I could have accomplished this without Anthony and Sally. It would have taken months. Even now as we start to revitalise the property, Anthony is involved in every aspect giving his thoughts and options. A very pleasant process only made possible by Sally and Anthony’s commitment to making it all possible.
I would highly recommend that anyone interested in purchasing a property in the Javea- Moraira area contact Sally and Anthony at www.spanish-property-sales.net

Dear Sally & Anthony, 25th June 2016
We started the journey to find our dream property in the Costa Blanca researching online in late Autumn 2015. This quickly became a daunting project as we had never visited the area and didn’t have any contacts. We had found what looked to be a nice district around the town of Moraira and registered with a couple of estate agents, but they were only focused on their own stock. However, by a stroke of luck we had also registered with a company called Spanish Property Sales. This resulted in a phone call to our house in England, one Saturday morning from a lady called Sally, who introduced herself as one half of a husband and wife team – the proprietors of Spanish Property Sales.
She took time getting to know our circumstances and requirements giving us lots of background information about the area. She explained how she and Anthony, her husband, had spent literally years researching the Spanish Costas before choosing to settle in Moraira some 13 years previously. They offered an independent property finding service that allowed them to give totally unbiased advice which we found very appealing. There was no hard sell, no contract, just lots of excellent feedback regards the properties we were selecting on the net. We soon came to realize that we were in safe hands and abandoned any ideas of working direct with estate agents – we didn’t need anybody else.
With their help our original list of 60 properties became a shortlist of 12 and Sally reassured us that the house we wanted was there, we just had to find it.
We travelled to Moraira in March to meet them – the personal experience turned out to be even better than the on-line one. They made all the arrangements and Anthony drove us around for two and a half days visiting all the properties on our list providing non-stop commentary on the area and a completely honest review after each viewing.
We were very fortunate and found our dream home during this visit. Anthony did all the negotiating with the estate agent and then offered to give us a personal introduction to a local lawyer. There was no pressure but by then he had got to know us and realized it would be important for us to meet him before we left.
Once we returned home the support continued – they are not just a safe pair of hands but also an arm around our shoulders. They know what it’s like to feel anxious and full of trepidation – this is a massive commitment for us and involves our life savings so we have to get it right. They don’t just provide a service, they make you their friend. They want to make sure their clients enjoy living in the area of Moraira as much as they do themselves and a crucial part of this is choosing the right property and location for each individual need.
Our sale was completed with very little stress because the lawyer Sally and Anthony recommended was excellent and did a really thorough job, giving us complete peace of mind. Sally provided a comprehensive list of local businesses which allowed us to arrange important things like insurance, housekeeping, gardening, pool maintenance and internet with ease. We have every intention of continuing our friendship and to utilize their wealth of knowledge and support services to make our ongoing Spanish adventure as stress free as possible.
Thank you so much Anthony and Sally.

Thank you Anthony and Sally! 2016
We had been in search of our dream Spanish property for over a year. After contacting Anthony and Sally we picked out several potential properties online and Sally and Anthony suggested many others. Sally interviewed us thoroughly to get a full idea of our wishes and needs. We imagined we wanted a country property with land to work and peace and quiet but the more properties we viewed the more our actual requirements became clear.
Anthony very patiently worked through all the viewings with us but subtlety pointed out the pros and cons of each property. Sally worked hard to find us locations of properties which often saved a visit, too close to main roads, sewage farm nearby etc.
Anthony was with us for the first AND second viewings of the property we have bought. When we decided this was ‘the one’ Anthony then gave us fantastic advice on possible pitfalls and the quirks of Spanish law, this advice was well founded. We returned to the Uk and Anthony handled the purchase negotiations reaching a very acceptable result.
We have now moved in to the Villa and are loving the feeling of HOME in ESPANA.
Gracias Sally and Anthony.

Dear Sally and Anthony Jan 2016
We wanted to say thank you for all the help you gave us recently when we purchased our villa in Moraira. The whole procedure went smoothly with the help of the Lawyer you introduced us to.
I found your website very informative and for a computer nerd easy to navigate. It was helpful when Sally suggested more villas to see along with the ones I had chosen. We did appreciate the time Anthony took showing us around the properties and giving us advice on locations.
We are now in the process of renovating the Villa and look forward to using it later this year.
With best wishes
What can I say about Anthony & Sally? 2015
They have been wonderful helping us to achieve our dream. They are friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable about the area. We viewed lots of villas over two visits to Moraira. One that we were particularly interested in, Anthony pointed out that due to the huge trees surrounding the villa we would never get any sun. So he always kept our feet on the ground and pointed out the down sides of each property as well as the advantages of each property. In July we thought we had found our ideal villa and negotiated a great price with the help of Anthony. He then introduced us to a lawyer who found out that there were problems with the land, so were advised not to proceed with the purchase.
We were devastated but thankfully we had found out early on, as we could have been stuck with an unsaleable property in the future. We revisited Moraira again in October, not expecting to get anything as good as the earlier villa but Anthony and Sally came good again! We are thrilled to bits with our new acquisition and we are looking forward to many happy years in our new villa. So all we can say is don’t bother with other estate agents just use Spanish property Sales!
