What Our Clients Say

May 8th, 2020

"We bought our property in 2018 with the aim of starting a B&B. From the start Jo and Tim and the team at Olive couldn't have been more helpful fully understanding our brief and showing us suitable properties with B&B potential. Jo's interest and enthusiasm for our project was so encouraging for what was a very big step also taking time to introduce us to others in the village who had done the same. We really can't thank them enough. As we could only come over for long weekends to search, Olive Properties were so efficient in lining up the right properties for us to view within our limited time frame and came up trumps really quickly showing us the beautiful property that is now our business No.1 La Meseta and our wonderful home.

"Tim and Jo were professional throughout the sale of our property and we particularly thought these aspects of the service were handled very well: the explanation of the property selling/buying process, the production of the property sale particulars and descriptions, the excellent photographs of the property, their interaction with prospective buyers and passing on their extensive knowledge of the area, handling the viewings especially when we were not present at the property, and their energy in following up on all queries and handling issues. Tim and Jo were always business like with a friendly touch. As we were away from our property for long periods, the communication by email and mobile text worked very well, plus our property was always locked up and the alarm reset following a viewing. We were always informed when a viewing was to take place and given feedback in a timely fashion. In summary, we received an excellent service from Olive Properties."

"Through 6 months of Spanish house hunting and purchase they were the best agent in the area, by far. Great website, pictures and property particulars. Our move was so much easier through these decent, honest and hardworking individuals."

"We bought our incredibly beautiful house in Los Alias, Cariatiz on line. Our dearest friend Rick knew exactly what we were looking for and worked very closely with Joe and Tim
As you can imagine both Joe and Tim and the vendors were a little sceptical that we could buy without actually physically seeing it. Joe and Tim took duty of care to a whole new level to ensure we knew exactly what we were doing. The first time we walked through the door, having paid the deposit, I burst into tears, knowing that it was perfect.
Without hesitation we would recommend Olive Properties.
The old adage if what you see is what you get, is so true. An amazingly run estate agent by an amazing couple."

"I cannot praise Jo, Tim and their team highly enough for their professionalism and expertise when selling our home. They went over and above what we expected from an estate agent. Selling our home was very difficult for us as we had a very special connection to the house and had made some very special friendships in the area which were very difficult to leave but Jo, Tim and their team made the move far easier than it otherwise could have been by their considerate, friendly and thoughtful assistance. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is thinking of using their services"

"When we decided to buy our first property in Spain, people told us to talk with Olive Properties. We're so glad we did! We found our perfect village house right away and moved in about 6 weeks later. A few years later when we decided to move to a cave house near Granada, we debated on whether to sell our village house or not. Given the time we'd seen other houses sit on the market, we thought we'd have no choice but to wait for months or years anyway. Not so! The day BEFORE I The day BEFORE it was meant to go on the market, Jo found us a buyer for our asking price. We couldn't believe it. Both transactions were fast and uncomplicated—we hardly had to do a thing. We've bought other properties since in other parts of Spain and can vouch for the fact that it doesn't always work so smoothly, even when you speak the language. Tim and Jo run a top-notch agency, and we can't recommend them highly enough if you're looking to buy or sell a property in this area of Spain."

"We would definitely recommend Jo and Tim for a property in the area of Bédar! They provide an excellent service.
We had a very bad experience with the purchase of an other home/agency.
Jo helped us to find our dream house, which we have transformed in a fantastic B&B with a great view over the coastline and the mountains. You can see it for yourself at www.casa-sin-fin.com. We are in love with it! Thanks so much for the good help!"

"We purchased a beautiful property late last year in Almería. We had great fortune in having Olive Properties handle the whole process. From day one we knew we were in good hands, utterly efficient, reliable, supportive and more importantly caring. It’s daunting buying a property abroad but we had no worries with Jo and her team. Thank you Olive Properties"

"We dealt with Jo from Olive Properties when we bought in Bedar a while ago. She was always really professional, helpful and informative about the properties we viewed, with no pressure put on us at all. Buying was quite difficult for us as we only visited Spain for a couple of weeks at a time, each time a couple of months apart, but everything was extremely well co-ordinated. Having eventually found the villa we wanted there were a few 'Spanish property snags', but Jo couldn't have given us more help and support, liaising on our behalf with the owner at that time and with the owners of neighbouring properties as we were back in the UK. All's well that ends well and our purchase was completed satisfactorily, thanks to Olive Properties."

"I purchased my village house, in Bedar, though Olive properties. They were, quite frankly, brilliant!
They ensured the process was seamless and stress free. I would even go so far to say as it was actually fun!! Tim even made some excellent redesign suggestions....which were wholeheartedly taken on board when remodelling!
Their personal touch, professionalism and knowledge is second to none. Can't recommend them highly enough!"

"We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Olive Properties to help you find your perfect home. We viewed many properties in Bedar and the surrounding area with them. Friendly, approachable, objective and very professional, Jo & Tim's knowledge of the area is second to none.
We are now very happy, living in our dream home on the outskirts of the beautiful village of Bedar.
Thank you!"

"We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Olive Properties to anyone looking for a property in Spain, and more importantly if you are looking for a trustworthy, reliable and helpful Estate Agent with good local knowledge and expertise.
We bought a house from Tim & Jo at Olive Properties a few years ago and we bought another just recently so we feel we can confidently say we would recommend them to anyone looking to buy in Spain. We would not use other agents as we have tried them and not been impressed.
If you are looking to navigate through the process of buying, with someone to help guide you and support you then you need look no further.
They have a great reputation and they certainly delivered for us."

"I cannot thank Jo and Tim enough for finding me my perfect house. They really understood what I was looking for so made the most of the limited time I had available to show me properties that fitted exactly with my original brief. The whole process has been painless and taken around 8 weeks from offer to completion. Both Jo and Tim have supported and advised throughout. I cannot recommend Olive highly enough."

Nothing was to much trouble, they were very proactive and followed up with lawyers, when things were not happening as quickly as we would have liked.I would certainly recommend Tim and Jo as the number one estate agents if you are looking to buy a home.
We cannot thank them enough, Tim actually took us to the town hall to help us in another matter.
Muchas Gracias Tim and Jo"
