"Our biggest concern with buying is Spain was navigating the legal process and we don’t speak Spanish (yet ????).

We met with Gerry and having given him our brief within a couple of hours we were standing in properties, one of which is now our new Spanish home! We are delighted.

There was no pressure and we were actually encouraged to think about it for a couple of days (which we did) and then went back and took the plunge.

Within 6 weeks all was completed and we we were in! We met with other agents in other parts of Spain, but no-one offered the same service and attention, and we felt that once you had agreed the deal you were very much on your own.

Gerry and Sue walked us through the process every step of the way. It was far easier than buying a property in the UK but without the support of DSH we would have been lost. If you are looking to buy in this area talk to these guys."
