3. The Spanish Estate Agent

Do you ever have those days where you think ‘Now I’ve seen it all’? Just when you think you have seen every personal situation or property quirk, along comes another one to surprise you. The Spanish Estate Agent recently helped a client avoid disaster when they fell in love with a property that not only was built on illegal land, but right on top of a river!

Buying and selling property is officially one of the most emotional things you’ll ever experience. There’s the high of the property search or viewing visits, the tension of the negotiation, the anxiety of the wait to complete, and at any stage you’re bound to have questions. Good preparation starts way before the first viewings with some in-depth research to find an agency – and an agent – that will listen, respond and share the ups and downs of the journey with you.

We asked Shirin Sharifi of The Spanish Estate Agent what she would look for in an agent: “As a buyer, you need an agent that knows the area inside out and has a little black book of all the best-kept secret properties plus a great relationship with the hundreds of developers along the coast. Properties move fast and not everyone keeps up to date with the latest availability.

“You also need to be speaking to someone who will take the time to really listen to what you want, will be interested in your lifestyle and will be able to guide you to the best-fit properties.

“As a seller, you will want an agency with extensive international marketing (for instance, we use top-ranking portals such as Rightmove, Kyero and Idealista), a physical presence to reassure clients and an active and energetic team to promote your property.

“Having lived and worked on the Costa del Sol for 25 years I know the value of building trust, and having open and honest communication with clients and I have built a team that shares my views and values.
The last piece of our professional jigsaw is a trusted Spanish lawyer who is completely bilingual and who works with us to oversee every transaction and offer the best legal advice. This has been key in offering added value to our clients.”
