H and D
I am writing to thank your team who took my husband & I on viewings in Denia & Javea last Tuesday. We have undertaken a number of different viewing trips this year and your team has really stood out as one of the best.
We met your team at the Place in the Sun show in London, leaving our details. We received many follow up calls and emails after the show. Your company was the only one who had someone knowledgeable and helpful on the telephone. I became so irritated by the other follow up calls, that I blocked all other unknown Spanish numbers.
We had multiple emails with John Palmer, who sent us suggested properties, listened to our feedback and sent through further suggestions. This resulted in a very useful viewing trip, only seeing properties that met our specification, rather than a pile of random hopefuls as other agents have thrown in. John was obviously very experienced, listening to our feedback and seemed to know as soon as we did whether we would consider the property.
We did not find anything suitable this visit, but have refined our area and property requirements greatly. We intend to return in the early Autumn to continue our search.
We would be really grateful if you could pass on our thanks on to all the team who helped us, and most specifically to John .

We were recently in Spain and spent some time with Mannie viewing properties. Just wanted to say how good he was, not only with the viewings but in providing us with lots of local information and hints, tips on living in Spain.
He certainly went the extra mile and although we are not purchasing this time we are hoping to return at the end of the year and will make contact with him again. We will also recommend Mannie, and your company, to anyone we know. The professionalism that we encountered made an impression on us both and did give us confidence in dealing with you.
Many thanks again.
Andy and Jane Barron
Please can i take this time to thank you for Vincent's very professional and stress free service that you have provided in this transaction and trust that if we do ever decide to sell the property or/and buy another you can rest assured that we will use the excellent services that Vincent`s offer. Please could you also pass on our many thanks to Ian in regards to the above. Look forward to seeing you a week on Friday!!
Dianne and Joe Jones
I would just like to say a very big thank you to Vincent's especially Ian who from day one was very professional with everything that was asked of him even down to sending info when he said he would. Nothing was ever to much for him to do for us even taking us for second viewings as we were only there for a short time. On our return Ian again was very professional and never pushed us into anything. All the staff have been very helpful with any queries we had and the legal team they recommended were again great. All in all Vincent's especially Ian made a very nervous decision an easy one to make and it has been the best decision. We are looking forward to spending our holidays in our new home in the sun. Thanks again Ian and will see you soon.
Anne and Brian Rouse
Hi John we hope you are well
Both Brian and myself would like to thank you very much for the time you spent with us viewing property in South Costa Blanca.
We both found you to be a very professional and friendly real estate agent.
You took the time to get to know us and were able to understand our needs and eventually after viewing 12 properties find our place in the sun!
You are an excellent ambassador for Vincent Real Estate and we would definetely recommend you to friends colleagues and family .
Kind Regards Anne & Brian Rouse

We would like to thank Ian Radwell from Vincent Real Estate for looking after us when we came to Orihuela Costa in June to buy a property. Ian listened to what we said regarding the type of property we wanted to purchase and in the price range that we were prepared to pay. Ian did his homework, he sent the property details to us in advance for the houses we were going to view and when he came to pick us up to take us viewing he had all the relevant paperwork with him. So we knew where we were going and what properties we would be viewing. Ian had done his homework and he had an answer for all our questions related to the properties, this included the government taxes and community fees, lawyers’ fees, local amenities etc.
We did go out with a number of other property agents from various agencies and were disappointed with them because they did not tell us in advance what properties we would view, some of these other agents had no paper work with them so we had nothing but their word regarding the property prices. They appeared to have their own agenda and the properties we saw were not what we asked to see. For example we asked for a minimum 2 bathroom house, they showed us a 1 bathroom house, this is unprofessional and time wasting.
So it is important to do your research before coming to Spain. Know what you want, know your budget and get a good agent, my wife and I were extremely pleased with Vincent Real Estate. Their set up from start to finish was professional, no hard sell, they did not tell us to buy a property immediately "as the prices were rising again". Ian took us around different areas explaining the location and the local facilities, the VRE staff, their offices and transport all said ''professional'' and when you are parting with a large sum of money it does give you confidence that you are in safe hands. I would strongly recommend anyone looking for property in the Costa Blanca area to use Vincent Real Estate.

We would like to take the opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to the whole staff at Vincents Estate Agents in Benijofar, for their support and professionalism throughout the whole procedure of us purchasing our dream villa in Spain. A massive thank you to Ian who totally understood exactly what we were looking for and tailor made the whole experience to suit our needs, ensuring that no time was wasted and resulting in us being 100 per cent satisfied with the outcome. He has always been there for us, even for the simplest queries treating every litle detail as important as anything major. Nothing is too much trouble - he has been exceptional! A special thank you for the lovely Donna who was major help to us translating any relevant communication that was necessary and just being a shining star who lights up the office. Also thank you so much to Mark and his whole ethos for the company - yes you really made our 30 year dream a wonderful enjoyable experience. Lastly a big shout out for the whole team who embraced our excitement and worked in the background ensuring our purchase went through. We are over the moon and thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
I cannot thank Ian Radwell and the team at Vincent Real Estate in Benijofar enough. I had a bit of a whirl wind trip to look at properties which I had initially chosen to see from the internet. It was all a bit daunting but from first contacting Vincent's I was put at ease with reassuring emails and questions promptly replied to before my arrival. Once in Spain, Ian picked my sister in law and I up from our hotel and took us to all the properties on my list plus one he thought may suit me. I was never rushed and nothing was too much trouble. If I was unsure what the immediate area had to offer, he drove around - often twice - so that I could familiarise myself with the environment. Once I had chosen my property, he and Stewart liaised with the vendor and guided me through every step of the purchasing process. Once back home their attentiveness did not stop and they went over and above their remit to pave the way to a trouble free completion. But their helpfulness didn't stop there. It would be 7 weeks before my husband and I could get back to Spain and Ian kindly offered to go to the property and check that the services had been left connected but nothing was left on. He even took pictures of the stop cock for the water and the electricity main fuse box and emailed them to me so that when we did arrive we knew exactly where everything was. I can honestly say my purchase in Spain went from daunting to a very pleasurable experience.
Anjie and Steve Maloney
We would like to say a big thank you to all at Vincent especially Ian & Mannie. We tried other estate agents but none could compare with the excellent service we received - nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to ensure our buying experience went without a hitch (which it did) and were there every step of the way guiding us through. They certainly went that extra mile and we would highly recommend such professionalism
I was introduced to Vincents via the internet.I was fortunate enough to be greeted by Ian Radwell right from the outset Ian was polite,informative and professional. A list of suitable properties was agreed on and from that moment nothing was too much trouble.As we progressed Ian modified our choices and once we h a d found a property very close to our ideal Ian took us on 4 viewings and negotiated with the vendor to achieve the best solution for all parties. I would strongly recommend Vincents and all members of staff who guided me through the Spanish buying process to my entire satisfaction.
David and Jill Toulson
Just a small note to thank everybody at Vincents Real Estate for all of your help in the recent purchase of our property in Lo Crispin. From start to finish nothing was too much trouble from viewings too the financial side it was excellent and even after the purchase I contacted Ian Radwell for some advice and he sorted me out. Now that is service so thanks again for making our purchase trouble free.
Rosemary and Hubert Dunlop
We have just returned from Spain and have completed the purchase of our new penthouse apartment which we purchased “off plan” with Gary of Vincent Real Estate when we were out in May/June last year. Rosemary and I are very pleased with the way things went, both with the builder, who actually facilitated an early completion for us, and at the Notary’s office. We would like to thank Gary once again for all the patience and help which he afforded us on the viewings. The views from the balcony of the apartment are amazing and the location is second to none.
We had decided not to put our existing property in Sucina on the market until we returned to Spain in October last year. So, a week after we returned we again contacted Vincent Real Estate with a view to giving them the sale. A lady called Cecilia phoned us from the Los Alcazares office and came to see us the very next day (Tuesday). She was very enthusiastic about our property and said that she may have a couple who would be interested as they were viewing in the area but she would have to make contact with them to confirm their interest. We received a phone call the following day to say that the couple would like to come and view on Friday. The viewing took place as arranged and they said that they were very interested in buying and would return home at the week-end with a view to sorting out their finances.
On the Tuesday of the next week we received another call from Cecilia to ask if we had heard of a TV programme called “A Place In The Sun”. We said that of course we had and she went on to say that they would be interested in coming to see if the property would be suitable to use as one of the properties for their client to view on the present programme they were filming in the local area. They came on the Thursday and were very impressed. They said that they would definitely be using it and the filming would take place next Tuesday. We couldn’t believe what was happening!!!!
Unfortunately we were returning home on the Sunday and so would not be there when it all happened but happily handed over all the keys to Cecilia who would be present on the day. Back home in Northern Ireland we received two phone calls; the first from Cecilia to say that the lady who had viewed was very interested and would be making an offer; the second from Karin, who is also in the Los Alcazares office and the sale was agreed.
As Vincent Real Estate knew that our new apartment would not be ready until the New Year they agreed with the buyer that completion of the sale be delayed. When we were out in February Karin arranged the completion and we had a successful visit to the Notary’s. Before returning home we again went to visit Cecilia and Karin at the Los Alcazares office to thank them for all their help and were made very welcome.
We are still in a bit of a daze in relation to all of this and how quickly it all happened. We have seen the programme on TV and so have all our friends. Properties in our area have been up for sale for months and even years and some have not even had a viewing. We sold ours within three weeks of handing it over to Vincent’s. I really can’t say enough about the work ethics of Vincent Real Estate and the people whom they employ. From the outset Gary & Mark in the Benijofar office, Cecilia & Karin in Los Alcazares and the legal team of Jose and Pilar have all been exemplary, so if you are thinking of buying a property in Spain or selling one then these are the people you need on your side.

We would like to thank all the team at Vincent Real Estate for all the help they provided when we sold our property.
They were very professional and kept us updated every step of the way and the Solicitor that you recommended Jose M Mena was also excellent and very much on the ball and made the process run smoothly.
We would definitely recommend Vincent Real Estate.
Ann and Brian Selleck
We have today received confirmation from Jose(Interealty) of the completion of our purchase of the apartment *** Jumilla 3. Thank you so much for all the thought and efforts yourself,Frank & Michaela have put into our purchase going through to completion. A great service,second to none,
I am writing to tell you how impressed I was with Jordan's professionalism and personable manner when my wife and I viewed some properties with him last Friday. He had clearly selected properties carefully for us as all of the properties matched our stated requirements and were within the budget limit we had set. Jordan was very well informed about the properties and the market in the southern Costa Blanca and he was able to answer all of our questions very well. We gained a very positive impression of your company through Jordan and we will recommend you to anybody we know in the UK who is thinking of buying property in the Costa Blanca.
Special thanks to Frank and the Playa Flamenca team. Firstly for finding us the perfect house after years of searching,
John and Wendy Wilkinson
We want to thank you for all your help you, Frank and Michalea gave us during the purchase of our house in Cabo Roig.
You were very patient and listened to our ideas and most of all did this with a brilliant sense of humour. You found us our House!
Frank talked myself and especially John through the purchase process, and we are very happy with the price agreed with the sellers that Frank gained for us. Patient till the end too, and gave everything that final push to get the sale through.
Amazing Michalea gave us such support during the last few stressful days of the purchase, drove us here drove us there and all during the christmas period. She is Gold Dust!
We love our house, and are very happy with every bit of it, location, size,everything
Brigite and Michel Lombard
It has been for us an exceptional year,we bought our house in Spain ,one of our biggest dreams ! You and your team made it possible and once again ,thanks a lot !
I initially contacted a few estate agents to gather some information and property types available for our budget and as expected they all replied with various properties for sale on numerous occasions, so I would like to thank you for being the only agent which had the good sense to send us only details of properties in the price range and area that we requested. So in a nutshell you will be the agents we want to use, and I know that in real estate terms our budget this time is not vast but easily doable without mortgages etc and later who knows?
Michael Kenny - Owner
I would like to extend my thanks to Mark and Rob, for their due diligence on the sale of my property. This had been on the market for a while previously, once marketed with Vincent Real Estate, we quickly found a buyer. Sadly owing to my original solicitors incompetence and over cautious buyers the sale fell through. Mark assisted in recommending a competent solicitor, who quickly got things back on track, and a new buyer was quickly found. Communication throughout and understanding by Mark and Rob was brilliant, would recommend to anyone buying or selling a property in the region.
Hubert and Rosemary Dunlop
As you know we were taken around be Gary and bought at La Zenia. We felt very comfortable with him and found him very helpful and patient with us as we went around the properties. There was no pressure from him and when we parted for the first time I don't think he felt that we would make a decision as quickly as we did. However, that's the old Northern Irish Celtic way - when something feels right, it's right !!!!
Malcolm and Sita Taylor
Mark and the whole team, Let me take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks for all the assistance we received in purchasing our home in Spain, from the initial insights of Rob in finding the ideal property to the culmination of being escorted through the process at the notary by yourself. The service throughout was faultless and the assistance following our purchase in organising a locksmith to meet our needs as regards security went well beyond what we would have ever expected. I have already recommended your company to my colleagues and I sincerely hope that they too may experience the same exceptional level of service that we received. We look forward to raising a glass of rioja with you all on our not too distant return to Quesada.
Thank you for all your assistance with the sale, and particularly to Gary who was a real hero on Wednesday morning when we had the issues with the bank !!!
Pat and Scott Cameron
We would like to thank you for the organisation of the purchase of our home in Spain. Please thank Gary specifically. He was very professional and he went to the trouble of showing us the surrounding areas not only the actual property. We are very happy with our home. Thank you also for recommending our lawyers. They are excellent.
We would like to give a double thank you to Vincent’s for their excellent service. Firstly thanks for finding us a new property. We had been looking for quite some time for a particular type of property drawing a blank and were introduced to Vincent’s. We dealt with Frank and he took on board our requirement’s and came up with exactly what we were after. The whole purchase process went ahead smoothly with the assistance of Vincent’s who took us through all the legal bit’s with Notaries and the Bank. The second big thank you to Vincents was above and beyond the call of duty. They are selling agent’s for our holiday property and when we were in the UK they called us to inform us we had flood damage from an upstairs bathroom resulting in a fair bit of water damage. Without hesitation they liaised with our insurers and oversaw the repair work that was necessary to re instate the house to the condition it was in prior to the flood. Particular thanks to Jordon, who had meetings with the plumber, carpenter, decorator and insurance assessor. Without their help we would have had to fly to Spain to oversee this work.

To anybody looking for the best real-estate agent in the Costa Blanca area ''VINCENTS REAL ESTATE'' located in Benijofar are by far the best estate agents you will find. Recently my husband David and I, Margaret decided to purchase a property in the sunny Costa Blanca, for family holidays and retirement when the time comes. I can only tell you that our experience with ''VINCENTS REAL ESTATE'' was terrific. From the moment we met, it was efficiency, professionalism and courtesy all the way. But I think the one thing that stood out was the fact that they listened to our requirements, unlike other estate agents. Due to the overall combined factors listed above we found exactly what we were looking for and the after sales service was terrific. We were given great advise, and the whole process went like a dream, we now use our 2nd home in Spain frequently. If you want to contact them, you wont regret it
Hi Frank Just a quick note to thank, you Stewart and Mannie for all the help you gave us last Friday. The apartment is great, even better when we've put our own stamp on it. We're back on 1st January. Can't wait!! Cheers Christine
Hi Thats great :-))) Thank you so much :-)))) We are realy excited to come back to Spain, here is still cold, but sunnny. We are telling our friends about you, and how great you have been, they almost dont believe us. When we recomend you, we will say Vincent properties and El Moncayo properties. Best regards Gunn and Jonny Strand
Dear Mark Thanks for your e-mail with regards to our property. We are really glad that it is your company and Pilars that have acquired a sale for us, as we know how hard you have worked on our behalf. We also know that you will get us the best deal you can and will not rip us off. Many thanks for everything you are doing for us. Please keep us informed of all developments. Your Faithfully Linda & Colin
I was extremely impressed with the two guys Rob and Frank, not only in their demeanor but also the efficient and professional way they have treated us. In particular they, in only a few hours, had ascertained exactly the type of property we wanted and managed to find some perfect, albeit all different types of propety to view and compare which must save you so much time and effort when trying to match people to places.
Hi Flavio, I will get back to you as soon as we set the date for our visiting trip to Guardamar. Out of all estate brokers who have contacted me you are the only one that actually sent me info regarding the type and location of propertys we are interested in, great work!
Don and Jane Smith
A very big thank you to Mark and his merry men We would like to express our gratitude to Mark & his Team for the excellent professional service that we received recently on the sale of our property - whether it was by email/telephone or dropping into the office we were always received in a friendly polite manner and nothing was ever to much trouble for them - if you are looking for a trustworthy 100% reliable estate agency in this area then Vincent's is the one I would thoroughly recommend to anyone. Don & Jane Smith
Stewart, May I take this opportunity to thank Frank & the team, for the wonderfully presented pictures & write-up on our Villa, thanks once again ,Jill & Ken Parker
Many thanks for your professional assistance in this. You and your company have achieved more a couple of months than anyone has done so since we have been on the market. kind regards on behalf of Ron and Jean Houghton Tracy and Colin (daughter and son-in-law)
Hi Mark, I thought I would just drop you a line to say thanks for all the professionalism your company showed in your dealings with me,much appreciated. You have a very good bunch of guys working for you including yourself of course. I thought you might like to hear a few words of praise, as often they are hard to come by in this day & age of rush,rush, rush! All the best. Kind regards, Sheila Gilbert
My husband and I bought our property in Benimar, Rojales via Vincent Real Estate. To say that we received a first class service is an understatement. From the overseas viewing trip to the day we received the keys to our property we were looked after superbly. The viewing trip did not just consist of viewing properties, but also a guided tour of the area which gave an invaluable view as to what facilities/entertainment etc could be expected should you find a property you wished to buy in any particular area. We personally had a tick list as to what we were looking for in Spain and was expecting that perhaps not all our expectations could be achieved. We can honestly say that every box was ticked, and we can only put this down to the fact the staff at Vincent Real Estate take on board all you say and ensure that you only view the properties that fit your expectations and there is no hard sell or time wasting. We chose our property, made an offer and came back to the UK. Vincent's dealt with everything and it ran like clockwork until we went back to collect our keys from the Notary. We would certainly recommend Vincent Real Estate to anyone who is looking for a property in Spain. Sue and Tony Hurley
