Meet the Spanish Estate Agent Team
Experienced professionals offering a warm welcome
We believe that finding the ideal property on the Costa del Sol should always be exciting and enjoyable. Our friendly, experienced property professionals are here to share their own extensive knowledge of the area and the buying process and make sure you see enough properties to be able to make the right choice with confidence.
Our family have owned property here for 12 years and we have latterly made the move ourselves to a place near the sea within easy reach of Estepona, Sotogrande and Malaga.
Before that we lived and raised our family in France, and the whole time we have been involved in providing a safe, friendly, professional service to people looking for their ideal property overseas and maybe a new life.
I am absolutely committed to respecting just what a big deal buying and selling property is.
I'm a keen sports fan and a bit of a culture vulture.
I speak English, French and Spanish and have some German and Welsh.
I hope to meet you in Spain.
I've lived on the Costa del Sol since the late 1980's and have witnessed enormous change.
I love it here. It has everything!
I have a real love of life and I proudly represented our area on Come Dine With Me
I am proud too, to be offering a totally professional service as a key member of TSEA.
I speak English and Spanish.
I will find you your dream home and look after all the important details to safeguard you - come buy with me!
You'll recognise me when we meet; I'm the one with the white glasses and the irritating ringtone

I started working in International Banking in Spain, UK, Egypt and Portugal, then gravitated to Project Management and Systems Installation for major financial institutions. I've lead a bit of a nomadic working life in Poland, Greece, Spain, Canada and USA. That was followed by 10 years in the Dominican Republic where I bought and sold a number of projects off-plan. I've now settled in Spain, in a house I bought 20 years ago to be closer to my family. I speak fluent Spanish and Portuguese and decent French.

I moved down to sunny Estepona a year ago from not-so-sunny Liverpool. I cannot describe how much I love living here - the town itself is incredibly well maintained and decorated with flowers, and is very clean. The beaches are gorgeous, I love that I can make the most of them since it's always sunny - this wasn't the case with my hometown!
Aside from doing administrative work for The Spanish Estate Agent, I enjoy building computers in my spare time and am generally interested in IT, computers and the Internet.
I hope you come down to our office by the beach soon, I'm sure you'll love Estepona as much as I do!
John worked for eight years for an international charity working in Europe, India and Latin America before returning to Ireland to work as a Site/Project Manager in construction for twenty years.
He moved to Spain in 2008 and has worked in the Real Estate sector using his experience in construction to help clients find their perfect property. John speaks English and Spanish and enjoys rugby and golf.
It seems a long way from my childhood in Scotland to my current life on the Costa del Sol with my wife and young son. Since we moved here I have worked in the real estate industry and enjoy sharing my love of this great area with people planning to make the move.
I was a police officer for 20 years then ran my own companies for 12 years. I like being in touch with people and creating positive relationships.
When I'm not working I'll be playing golf or football or simply chilling out!
I still have links with Scotland - my 2 grown up sons are still there.
I've gone from one extreme to another, growing up in the Philippines then marrying and moving to Norway where I lived for 14 years. We had a holiday home on the Costa del Sol and 2 years ago moved here permanantly. It feels like home!
I speak Filipino, English, Norwegian and Spanish and my 15 year old son is tri-lingual.
Currently I live in Estepona itself and I love the weather on the Costa del Sol.
I've been involved in property sales for most of my time in Spain. I'm hoping to speak to many of you as I get in touch with all new clients who contact The Spanish Estate Agent.
I've lived in Spain now for 18 years and happily call it home. I am a fully qualified Chartered Accountant with a BSC Honours degree in Mathematical Statistics from the University of Liverpool.

I'm now supporting the Financial Director of The Spanish Estate Agent and out of the office you'll find me with my young son, ten pin bowling or playing badminton.
