Hola y buenos días

About us

We are Bev and Neil Holmes, married with 4 children and are originally from Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. We now live in the beautiful small town of Arboleas in Almeria, Spain. We offer a friendly property buying and selling experience, that is bespoke to you and your needs. By taking a detailed brief from both buyers and sellers, we make the whole process of buying and selling here in Spain easy! 

We feel, having us by your side along your journey, will help find your dream property, be it for holidays or your forever home. We gently guide you on your way, with everything from property searches and viewings, to making an offer, and of course closing the deal. We also offer an After Care Service, second to none, which brings us many personal recommendations, the best form of advertising for us.

Many traditional estate agents don't offer this personal, unbiased service, and quite often, unless you have already sold your UK property, won't even entertain you for viewings. We like to feel we offer something different to this old fashioned style of selling properties abroad. If only we'd have had this service when we were looking years ago and, more recently with some of our family, the process would have been less stressful.

It's a tough job trying to arrange and organise things on the ground here in Spain, let alone when you're trying to achieve that from the UK. So we saw a niche in the market place, and started our family business from scratch, with the ethos of taking that stress from you, as a buyer or seller. Your part is to really give us the most detailed brief you can, even down to the pet food you need to access for those beloved dogs you're going to transport, and we'll source everything for you...and believe me we did find that particular dog food!!!

When we bought our first home here in Arboleas, we did everything ourselves, so with our guidance  and 14 years of knowledge in the area, we will turn your dream of owning a retirement property or holiday home, especially in or near to Arboleas, into a reality, making every step of the process easy!

This transition, should only ever feel exciting and so we promise to do everything we can to make it pleasurable and hassle free.

We can arrange tours of Arboleas and the surrounding areas, taking in the sites and views, along with all our local amenities like the local library, town hall, health centre, and of course we will point out the bars, restaurants, music venues etc.

Once you have bought, our After Sales Service will assist with all necessary paperwork, to help you with Residency, Wills, Inheritance, House and Car Insurance, exchanging driving licences, etc.

You'll need to consider your pensions, tax, life assurance, investments and healthcare arrangements in your new home. Please note that members of EU countries such as a Dane, a Swede or Norwegian has the right to live in Spain by virtue of their countries' membership of the European Economic Area.

Hope to speak to you soon,
Bev & Neil
