Dear Anthony & Sally, 2013
For a long time, me and my wife have thought about owning property in Spain to use for vacations and eventually for retirement. At the beginning of the year, we began our search online and quickly found ourselves overwhelmed. We foresaw that the process would be long and tedious, so we attempted to contact some property finders but unfortunately with mixed results. When we stumbled upon Spanish Property Sales, we were amazed by their professionalism; responses to any and all queries were immediate and thorough. We immediately felt that we were in good hands and were in constant contact with Sally for several weeks as we attempted to identify properties that might suit our needs.
In April we decided to travel to Spain to look at some of these properties in person and met Anthony, who together with Sally, had organized a four-day itinerary. As he drove us around the area to view the properties, he provided an honest, impartial perspective and highlighted negative and positive aspects of properties which we might not have noticed ourselves. With his help, we were able to weed out those properties which seemed to match our criteria online, but which we found inappropriate once we had viewed them together with Anthony. We were truly amazed to find the right property during these four days. In early June we again travelled to Spain to complete the purchase and by the 11th of June, we were the happy owners of a house in Benitachell.
Anthony and Sally were even able to recommend lawyers to help us trudge our way through the legal process of buying a property abroad. They turned what might have been a lengthy and unpleasant process into one that was quick and enjoyable, and left us confident in our purchase.
We highly recommend Anthony and Sally to anyone considering purchasing property in Spain.

Dear Anthony & Sally, 2013
After falling in love with Moraira over 20 years ago and enjoying many happy family holidays there, we were finally ready to take the plunge and buy our dream home.
We found Spanish Property Sales through searching the web and from the very beginning of the process Anthony and Sally were extremely helpful. All questions via email, however trivial, were answered promptly and accurately by Sally. Once we gave our budget and criteria, a list of properties was drawn up. We chose the ones we wanted to see, booked the flights and arranged to meet Anthony.
We felt no pressure to buy at any time and Anthony had a great knowledge of both area and market and gave excellent advice on each property. When we selected our “favourite” property, Anthony was able to assist with the negotiations and make sure that everything went ahead very smoothly.
We are very much looking forward to many more years of enjoying our property and can only thank both Anthony and Sally for guiding us throughout the process. We have no hesitation in recommending them whatsoever.

When I first contacted Anthony and Sally I found their responses were genuine and inviting. I arranged to view 2 properties and I found the advice they gave me was excellent and very helpful. When it came down to selecting the property I wanted they helped a lot in determining what price to offer and then negotiated on my behalf, enabling me to achieve my dream property.
I found their work to be very helpful and professional and would certainly recommend them.

Just imagine that you are entering completely unaccustomed environment with no experience at all! That is quite an accurate description of a situation in the beginning of our way to the dream villa. Being Russians we were not familiar with any aspect of purchasing villa in Spain. Just burning with the desire to buy villa, some money and … Yes, we were lucky to make the first step into the right direction! After days of investigation in Internet we have decided to choose so-called agent’s scheme. Luckily we have chosen Spanish Property Sales as an agent, the only agent we relied on completely.
The rest of a process was a matter of Sally’s and Anthony’s professionalism that was accompanied a little bit with our luck. It was a really hard work, not an easy journey: to make a short-list, to decrease it, to view all properties from the short-list, to chose the right property. I can not imagine that we do this job without any assistance. But I do not have a lot of unneeded money and time to pay for such experiment with uncertain result!
With Sally’s and Anthony’s assistant we have found a villa of our dream just for one 5-day visit to Javea. Their support was incredible and enlarged over our expectations. They even helped us to choose a reliable lawyer, to open a bank account, to create a furniture inventory, to contact after purchasing service, etc. What valuable were Anthony’s advices concerning villa choosing and maintenance!
Ancient Chinese proverb says that even the longest way starts from the first step. I wish all of you to start your long way to a desired Spanish property from the right first step, relying on Sally’s and Anthony’s support.

Dear Sally and Anthony,
Sandra and I would like to express our total gratitude in the key roles Spanish Property Sales (“SPS”) played in ensuring that we identified and viewed specific and relevant properties aligned to our requirement and budget and finding our dream property in an incredibly short period of time. I would like to say we got lucky, but in reality it was the skill, knowledge and expertise of SPS that provided us that window of opportunity.
We came to the Costa Blanca region for a limited period only on the basis of seeking attractive property locations and identification of property types from which to buy for our use and eventual retirement purposes. In this regard we had a large check-list to tick.
On arriving in Moraira in which we based ourselves by chance, but quickly realized that this was no ordinary location. It was vibrant, charming, in stunning surroundings and filled with very friendly and charming residents. We found SPS through local professional contacts, who considered them to be very reliable and honest. They didn’t disappoint.
Given we didn’t have much time we required a local partner who could mediate with all the Estate Agents but identify accurately those properties that met our check-list requirement. SPS provided that professionalism and with speed, and then proceeded to make all necessary arrangements in establishing viewings. Not only that, they provided the transportation to a large number of viewings throughout the entire region, from which this gave us first hand experience of choices and where we felt comfortable in purchasing. In addition, SPS introduced us to a bank, financial advisor’s, and other very important contacts within the purchasing chain.
The most rewarding factors from SPS is that they were very honest, available and constructive in their opinion on properties from the perspective of purchase investment, and had a sound understanding of the regional market. Their direct approach reduced potentially weeks and months of property viewings and allowed us to concentrate and home in on what we were actually looking for. Within 3 months we went from “casual assessment” to owning a property that we are extremely proud of. However, it didn’t stop there with SPS. Given their local contacts they put us in touch with the right contacts covering after-sales services and property needs.
Overall, without SPS, we would never have achieved what we have. Sally and Anthony make a great team and provide an outstanding “one stop” service that is very friendly, easy going, dedicated but very much professional and of the highest standards.
I would have no hesitation in recommending SPS to any potential property buyer in the Costa Blanca region.
Well done Sally and Anthony!

My wife and I decided to take the plunge to search for a property in the beautiful area of Moraira. We were both extremely cautious as when buying a property abroad it can be a very daunting experience.
We extensively researched as many estate agents as we could getting replies from some and not so others.
We then found Spanish Property Sales headed by Anthony and Sally Bloom. They explained that they weren’t estate agents but Property Consultants who had a wider
Portfolio of properties and could cherry pick the ones which best suited our needs.
We e-mailed Sally and quickly built up a rapport and trustful relationship. She began researching properties on our behalf so that we could gain an insight into the type of property we wanted to purchase.
Once this was achieved they set up a schedule so we could view the properties we were interested in.
When we arrived in Moraira we were met by Anthony who had the taxing task of ferrying us to all the properties. Anthony is one of life’s nice guys who genuinely wants to help you achieve your dream and will go out of his way to ensure this happens . He won’t put any pressure on you but is happy to advise if needed. Both he and Sally endured a myriad of questions from both my wife and I, some of which may have seemed trivial but were important to us and always we were given their help and time.
We even contacted Sally late at night whilst we were there to change our itinerary and schedule for the next day and she managed to arrange it.
When we decided that we wanted to purchase a particular property they were on hand to help with all the legalities as well as finding a reputable solicitor to deal with all the paperwork.
Like you I read the testimonials on many, many websites of estate agents wondering who was trustworthy and who wasn’t.
I can genuinely not pay enough tribute to Anthony and Sally whose sheer hard work professionalism and dedication have led my wife and I owning our own place in the sun.
If you are looking to purchase a property in Moraira or the surrounding areas I would strongly recommend you use Anthony and Sally at Spanish Property Sales. We did and we don’t regret it for a single moment !!

Testimonial Spanish Property Sales 9th April 2012.
It took only one visit to the beautiful town of Moraira on the Northern Costa Blanca to convince my husband and I that we wanted to buy our own little piece of paradise in the sun! That was the easy bit!
Having been an estate agent for some 20 years I thought finding a property wouldn’t be too challenging. How wrong could I have been? The Spanish buying and selling process is quite different to ours in the UK and there are some 200 Estate Agents operating between Moraira and Javea. It wasn’t long before I was getting bombarded with a number of “very friendly” Estate Agents and 100’s of properties. To say information overload would have been an understatement. That was until I contacted Spanish Property Sales based in Moraira and owned and exclusively run by a charming husband and wife team, Anthony and Sally Bloom. After my initial email Sally was in touch straightaway offering some sound advice and this was where our journey began. Sally began the arduous task of sourcing properties on our behalf carefully liaising with a number of estate agents matching properties suited to our needs and requirements. She would then arrange all the viewing appointments. Anthony would then chauffeur and escort us on all our viewings to be there on hand to answer any queries or questions. His knowledge and advice is invaluable and totally impartial which enabled us to make informed decisions and judgements. We very quickly built up complete trust in the way in which Anthony and Sally operated probably the most fundamental factor when you are making such a big commitment.
When you contact Spanish Property Sales, Anthony will be honest enough to say “it’s a journey” and “it’s not easy” finding the property of your dreams! He was evidently right on both counts however we have now found the property of our dreams and our little piece of paradise. Anthony and Sally at Spanish Property Sales are truly a professional duo and their knowledge of properties in Moraira, Javea and Benissa is second to none. We can honestly say hand on heart if it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be in our fabulous villa right now!
Thank you Anthony & Sally for all your hard work and true professionalism!
