"When we finally decided to the take the plunge to buy in Southern Spain, we didn’t know who or where to turn.

So, it was by chance an acquaintance of ours had just returned from a holiday in Spain and informed us that he had recently bought a property. We asked him how he went about it. He said you have to speak to Dream Spanish Homes as they looked after him from start to completion on his apartment.

On arrival in Alicante, to our departure four days later, we can honestly say that we were treated by DSH in the most professional and friendly way. We were picked up each day and dealt with on a one-to-one basis which meant so much to us to have this personal touch.

They were so informative in every way throughout the process from viewing properties, offers, agreeing a property and then assisting on post sales inquiries. This meant so much to us as it takes the pressure off you and is so reassuring especially purchasing a property overseas.

We will be recommending DSH to our friends and family."
