Other agents have a lot to learn from David and Sandra. I was immediately reassured when I met David and he talked me through the process, explaining the rules for building, permissions and the timelines required.  This was before he showed me anything. When he did, it was varied and of quality. He is sensitive to a buyer’s wishes, sometimes before s/he  knows what they are. Buying in Spain is not for the faint-hearted: the paperwork can be frustrating but David ensured that the process, laborious though it was, resulted in success, with everything and everybody in the right place.

As one hears horror stories of people paying for properties to which they have no title deeds, it was a relief to have Eshkeri and Grau prepare everything so meticulously: the police registration, opening a bank account, the contracts and the final purchase.  I might have been disheartened and given up half-way through had all concerned not made the professional contact one which was pleasant and encouraging. David has put together a good team, and it is reassuring to have him and Sandra based in the village, where they are available for advice and the inevitable handholding required by new arrivals.  Arens de Lledó is benefiting from their dynamism, with Hostal La Sociedad as the centre of all activity.As a single woman, I have no hesitation about the move to Spain.
