"Blown away by the excellent service"
We were blown away by the excellent service provided by the whole team of Premier Villas (Chris, Martina and Karen) when we trusted them with the exclusive listing of our villa in Llíber.
Taking in account the difficult circumstances with covid they did everything possible to assure a fast and easy sale for us.
Especially the personal touch during the whole process felt for us as heart warming.
Reliable, knowledgeable and easy to reach and to communicate with.
Very highly recommended!

"The team at Premier have been excellent"
My wife and I put our villa sale in the hands of Premier Villas in December 2020, fully expecting the chances of finding a buyer during Covid would be slim. To our amazement Karen called us in February 2021 to say a buyer had be found, the viewing had taken place by way of a video call!! From agreeing a price, to the final completion, the team at Premier, Chris, Karen and Martina, have been excellent. We used our own lawyer and Martina communicated with them throughout the selling process and also arranged the Energy Certificate and renewal of our Habitation Certificate ( something we had no idea was out-of-date!). Completion took place at the end of June, a date agreed with us and the buyer because of Covid restrictions, and everything went without a hitch. We can most certainly recommend Premier Villas to anyone who wants a team that will do their best to ensure a smooth sale of your property.

"a difficult year for everybody ,but Premier managed to get us through"
We registered with Premier Villas in 2019 and sold our house in March last year. Owing to Covid and the Belgian buyers not having NIE numbers it took till July for the completion. We had done our best to ensure that the paperwork was in order before we started but as we couldn't travel to Spain, there were a few problems along the way which Martina managed to sort out for us. She really is a star and a great asset to the company. It has been a difficult year for everybody, but Premier managed to get us through. Chris, Karen and most importantly Martina are a great team and always came up with a solution. Many thanks to them.

"Acheté et vendu par Premier Villas "
Nous étions passé par Premier Villas Spain pour acheter notre maison et bien sûr nous conservé le même agent immobilier, pour la revente 7 ans plus tard. Une équipe autour de Chris ; toujours aussi professionnelle, efficace,rapide...Un suivi des dossiers exemplaire, qui rassure malgré l'éloigement géographique. Une mention spéciale à Martina, qui a été notre interlocutrice de bout en tout. 4,5 mois pour vendre en cette période Covid .c'est un très bon délai!
Merci encore à vous tous.
Christophe & Caroline, Janvier 2021
"Premier Villas : the Dream team "
Nous avons acheté notre maison avec Premier Villas et tout s'est parfaitement passé.Chris est très sérieux, très sympathique, à l'écoute du moindre détail, et surtout la confiance qu'il inspire est tout à fait justifiée.
Martina est absolument exceptionnelle, extrêmement amicale, et d'une rigueur professionnelle imparable.Rien n'est laissé au hasard, rien n'est flou, le fait qu'elle parle Français, Espagnol, Anglais facilite toutes les étapes du processus qu'elle maitrise parfaitement. Elle s'occupe de tout ! Rassurante, d'une gentillesse et d'une disponibilité totale, elle a éliminé tout le stress qu'on peut avoir dans ce genre de transaction. Nous étions tous convaincus de l'équipe. Donc, nous recommandons évidemment et sans aucune réserve Premier Villas.
Merci à tous !

"Perhaps one of the most difficult times to sell a property "
We completed the Sale of our apartment in December 2020, perhaps one of the most difficult times to sell a property ever, due to current economic difficulties and of course covid restrictions. Premier Villas were nothing short of wonderful, very professional, metaphorically holding our hands, and acting on our behalf, as we were unable to return to Spain. They were there every step of the way to ensure the smooth transfer of the property.
We would have no hesitation in recommending them for any future transactions, be it buying or selling
Heather & Jamie O'Brien December 2020
"Compétence & efficacité "
Ceci est un témoignage de satisfaction pour l'agence (en francais) compétence & efficacité & accompagnement Great and Brillant!!! La Directeur Chris ne communique qu'en anglais mais sa collaboratrice Martina parle le Français (en plus de l'espagnol et l'anglais) et ce fut une aide extrêmement précieuse pour nous qui n'habitons pas la région. Elle nous aidé depuis le début jusqu'à la signature en nous donnant toutes les indications, les renseignements utiles et nécessaires, un peu comme l'aurait fait "une amie" !!! le mot "amie" est juste !!! je recommande vivement cette agence
Daniel LE GOFF & Sylvette AMBROSINO Décembre 2020
"Your help to sell our villa has been invaluable "
We would just like to say a very big thank you to the team at Premier. Your help to sell our villa has been invaluable. Chris had pulled out all the stops to bring the viewers. Karen has kept us up to date with the feedback. Martina has been an absolute star when sourcing all the necessary paperwork and passing on the information to the right people. It has made our side of things so much easier. We would recommend the service we have received without hesitation.
Jan & Harry September 2020
"During the State of Alarm "
During the Spanish State of Emergency we recently sold our villa using Premier Villas. During this difficult time Chris, Martina and Karen worked hard to ensure that the sale and completion went smoothly. We would recommend Premier very highly to anyone wishing to buy or sell a property in the Jalon Valley.
"Amazing service and speed"
We were not spending enough time at our townhouse in Jalon, due to family commitments in the UK, so in October 2019, we decided to place it on the market.
Chris Hara, of Premier Villas, Jalon, had sold the house to us in March 2018, so we called him, and asked him for a valuation. He came to our house in Jalon, and within 20 minutes, we had agreed a price. Within 3 days, the details were all completed, and our house was on the market. Within two weeks, Chris had shown three potential buyers around the house, and he sold it. Amazing service and speed.
The buyers were from the Netherlands, so it took some time for them to obtain their NIE numbers, and we all agreed a completion date of 24th February 2020. During the four months up to completion, the team at Premier Villas, kept things moving, and sent us contracts to sign, informed us of everything we would need to do, for the sale to go through smoothly. They were great at chasing the progress, and keeping us informed. A few days before completion, the buyers wanted to come round to see the house, and check that everything was in order, before completion. Chris and his staff arranged this, and we were there to meet our buyers for the first time, and show them around. Chris also attended, and made sure that everyone was satisfied. On the day of completion, Martina (a key member of staff at Premier Villas) was our representative at the Notary's office. She was exceptional. She translated all necessary documents from Spanish to English and explained them to us, since we don't understand Spanish. The Dutch buyers were with their solicitor, and spoke in Dutch, which Martina translated for us, as necessary. I don't know how many languages Martina can speak, but probably at least five!
Overall the service, communication, and helpfulness from Chris and his staff was second to none. They were all exceptional, and went the extra mile. The whole experience for us was fantastic. We can highly recommend Chris Hara, and his team at Premier Villas.
Peter Ball, Jalon
"Prompt and flawless"
After contacting Premier Villas when we spotted a house of our likings all communications have been very prompt and flawless. Chris has been very flexible in meeting us for the site visits even on a short notice. And being Dutch, while English and Spanish are not our first languages, it was very nice to have Martina to help us in our native language. The whole transaction went very smooth and now we are the proud owners of our second home in Jalon. Whenever we need support in an other Real Estate transaction we will not hesitate to consult Premier Villas.
Karin and Jan Peter, Jalon
Nadat wij contact hebben opgenomen met Premier Villas toen wij een huis van onze wensen ontdekten is alle communicatie correct en snel verlopen. Chris is zeer flexibel geweest in het maken van afspraken voor de bezichtigingen, zelfs op zeer korte termijn. En als Nederlanders, waar Spaans en Engels niet onze eerste taal is, was het erg plezierig dat Martina ons kon helpen in onze moedertaal. De hele transactie verliep erg soepel en nu zijn we de trotse eigenaren van ons tweede huis in Jalon. Wanneer wij ondersteuning nodig hebben bij een andere onroerendgoedtransactie zullen wij niet twijfelen om Premier Villas te raadplegen
Karin en Jan Peter
Después de contactar a Premier Villas cuando descubrimos una casa de nuestros deseos, toda la comunicación se realizó sin problemas y rápidamente. Chris ha sido muy flexible al hacer citas para las visitas, incluso a muy corto plazo. Y como holandeses, donde el español y el inglés no son nuestro primer idioma, fue muy agradable que Martina pudiera ayudarnos en nuestro idioma nativo. Toda la transacción se realizó sin problemas y ahora somos los orgullosos propietarios de nuestra segunda casa en Jalón. Cuando necesitemos soporte con otra transacción de bienes raíces, no dudaremos en consultar a Premier Villas
Gracias de nuevo
Karin en Jan Peter, Jalon
To Chris, Martina and Karen,
Thank you so much for all you help and for the exceptional service you have given us with the smooth running of the sale of our villa.
Wishing you and the Premier Villas team every success in the coming years.
Wendy & Nigel, Alcalali.
“Chris and his team at Premier have been brilliant"
From the beginning Chris and his team at Premier have been brilliant with our search for a Spanish property. They are a friendly team for whom nothing is ever too much trouble. However many questions we had, they were happy to help. Having found our ideal property Chris and his team have always gone above and beyond to guide us along our journey of owning a Spanish home. Martina has been especially helpful from start to finish and beyond. Martina accompanied us on the Notary visit to complete the purchase and, with her amazing multi-lingual skills, made it much less daunting for us. The whole process worked very smoothly which is all down to the hard work by the team at Premier. We would highly recommend Premier to anyone wanting to buy in the Jalon area. We would like to say a very big thank you to you all at Premier you have been absolutely FAB throughout.
Sandra & Andy, Alcalali May 2019
“Smooth and simple"
I have being buy 2 houses through Premier Villas and both time it has been a smooth and simple way through the Spanish system because I have get all the needed help from Martina, Chris and Karen. Always with a smile and I can recommend Premier Villas for everyone who want to buy a real Estate inside their area.
Thanks for your help
Hasse Larsen, Jalon and Lliber 2019
"if anyone could make it happen it would be Chris and his amazing team"
Chris, Karen and Martina,
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you have done for us. From finding the right property, answering our numerous emails and questions so promptly, help with NIE numbers and bank accounts, liaising with the Town Hall and architect....the list goes on!
This was all done with extreme professionalism, good humour and a lot of patience!
At one point we didn’t think we would see the day when we would get to collect the keys of the property we fell in love with. However we did say if anyone could make it happen it would be Chris and his amazing team.
We cannot thank you enough.
Keep up the good work.
Liz and Martyn Barrett, March 2019
"With this team you cannot go wrong"
We cannot thank Chris, Martina & Karen enough for the service of buying our dream house in the Jalon Valley. From the very first telephone call we was always put at ease, nothing was too much trouble.
After what has been a very long search for the ‘right house’ in Spain...meeting various estate agents, up and down the country, we knew as soon as we met Chris he was knowledgeable and not pushy. Soon after we met Karen, who was always there to guide us through obtaining our NIE numbers and anything we needed to know she would instantly reply over email. Martina is a gem, she did above and beyond for us and what a lovely lady. With this team you cannot go wrong. Whether your budget is extremely high or basic they treat you just the same and equal. The area is beautiful and you sure will be in the right hands of Premier Villa’s. They make the scary process of buying, so much easier and laidback. Thanks for making our dreams come true guys.
Craig and Stacey January 2019.
" A perfect team"
Chris, Karen and Martina
A big thank you to you all of you for wonderful service in selling our house, professional in every way. Nothing too much trouble - a PERFECT TEAM!!!!!
Mick & Anita Pearson, January 2019
It has being an easy process buying a house through Premier Villas Spain, because of the help we have got all the way from looking at different houses through the decision to take the choice and even help afterwards with the Spanish Bank, notary and change over the utilities.
Thanks to the staff Chris, Martina and Karen who has been there for us all the way.
Helen and Hasse, Denmark. January 2019
I would like to share my experience of selling our property in the Jalon Valley. Chris, Karen and Martina were all fabulous to work with and made our sale seamless. Chris maintained contact with us at all times via email and telephone while we were in the UK. Martina became our POA and managed all of our correspondence to do with the sale including liaising with the notary and bank on our behalf and Karen was always there to offer support and advice at a time which is known to be very stressful. Throughout the process we had peace of mind knowing that we were in the hands of experienced, established and competent agents. Exceptional!! Thank you Premier
David and Michelle Elstob, January 2019
We have been more than satisfied with the service we received from Premier Villas. Our property was listed on the website and we had viewings within a few days. Chris Karen and Martina offered professional advice and answered any queries promptly which helped to make the whole process stress free. Thank you again to all at Premier Villas.
Terry and Jackie Kiggins, December 2018
We can’t thank Premier Villas enough for the smooth way our purchase went. Chris, Martina and Karen were all very helpful in guiding us through the process. I would highly recommend Premier Villas as estate agents in the Jalón Valley if I was looking for someone to act for us,
Chris’s knowledge of the area is exceptional and his staff are a pleasure to deal with. Thank you all.
Jim and Jill Thornton, December 2018
“absolutely 5 star!”
No need for a long testimonial when everything you wish for with your Estate Agent, both selling in Murla and buying in Sagra, is absolutely 5 star!
The best two decisions I have made in the sixteen years as a resident in Spain.
Many thanks to the Premier team: Chris, Martina and Karen
Enjoy your Xmas from Brian and Celia, December 2018
Chris and his team at Premier villas provided excellent service for us, we had been searching for our villa for a while and had been with various different agents but never found the villa we were looking for. We set out our criteria for what we wanted, but most agents don’t really listen that well so we were shown some completely unsuitable properties.
We then contacted Premier villas as they had a couple of properties that interested us, we made an appointment and met with Chris. He listened to what we were looking for and said he had some properties in mind that met our needs, after looking at a few potential villas Chris said that he had a wild card up his sleeve if we we wanted to see. We went to the villa and were shown around, we were blown away the villa met everything we had asked for, so Chris had listened and matched us up with our ideal villa. Chris negotiated a good price for both parties and we agreed to buy, although our house in England had been sold the sale took forever to complete (4 months) during this time Chris kept in touch with us and our vendor making sure we were ok getting updates and passing them on to our vendor. This continued right through to completion, we would definitely recommend the Premier villas team.
Alan & Lesley Lawrence, November 2018
I just want to let everyone know how professional and helpful everyone at Premier has been in helping with the sale of our Casa in Vernissa Park.
Chris, Martina and Karen have done everything they could to make the sale go smoothly and have helped me over a very difficult time. Vernissa Park is a lovely urbanisation to live in and hopefully the new owners of my property will have a happy life there as we did for 16 years.
Liz Sutherby, November 2018
After recently purchasing a property in Jalon with Premier Villas, I would like to say just how wonderfully easy they made the whole process. The whole team are very professional, Chris has a wealth of knowledge about the purchasing and selling of properties, gained over many years in the business. Both Martina and Karen bent over backwards to help with any queries that arose along the way, Martina even giving up her own time on her holiday to come to the notary for final completion. They have become like friends and work as a family to help, even after completion they offer help with anything that arises after moving in.
Gaarne zetten wij onze ervaringen met Premier Villas op papier. De zoektocht naar een nieuwe woning is niet eenvoudig .Regels en wetgeving zijn beduidend anders dan in Nederland. Een goede begeleiding daarin is onontbeerlijk.Premier Villas heeft ons in bange tijden enorm geholpen en onze dromen waargemaakt. We wonen nu al een paar maanden in ons nieuwe huis en als we een vraag hebben kunnen we nog steeds bij Premier Villas terecht. Ook na de koop blijft Premier Villas service verlenen.Wij zijn zeer onder de indruk van de expertise en de klantvriendelijkheid van alle medewerkers.Voor ons is maar één makelaarskantoor in Jalon en dat is Premier Villas.
Rene en Antoinette van Oord, bought in Parcent , 27 April 2018
I would like to thank everyone for their kindness, sense of humour and hard work on my behalf over the sale of La Solana Gardens. You were all very supportive and made me feel welcome on my frequent visits to your offices. Chris was always only encouraging and brought many people to see the house. Even when viewings were a bit think on the ground, his perseverance paid off. Thank you Chris. Karen always had time for a chat and a laugh, even when she was busy. I couldn’t have done without Martina during the weeks before notary. On the day she was amazing, as the whole experience took so long and my brain wasn’t functioning in straight lines, perhaps it never does. Only other people can be the judge of that! She has continued being so patient and helpful. See you all, I hope, when I come over in a few days time. You have real teamwork, very best wishes to you all,
Vivien Johnson, sold Alcalali July 2018
We've had such a journey, from a holiday in Jalon 2 years ago and a longing to live here to selling our former property in Murcia and buying here in Alcalali, all in the space of 4 weeks! Chris took us to a variety of properties (including the one we bought ) and had sound advice on apartment living and not buying somewhere with too many steps, stairs and hills as we are getting older (although we are quite fit at present). We took all this on board and are so glad we did. Our new house is is perfect, with views to die for, which was one of our major 'must-haves'. Martina is a godsend, answering all my queries about the property before going to the Notary with speed and efficency. She was invaluable on the day of the signing explaining everything succinctly. She even changes your utilities over for you and is available to help with any query large or small. Thanks to Premier we now have our dream property in this beautiful part of Spain.
Peter & Ann Forde, Alcalali , Mai 2018
Wir haben uns Ende des Jahres 2017 dazu entschieden, unser Haus in Benidoleig zu verkaufen und uns 3 Makler herausgesucht, unter anderem Premier Villas. Gleich vom ersten Tag an fühlten wir uns durch Chris und sein Büro sehr gut betreut. Nach einigen wenigen Besichtigungen haben wir im März 2018 bereits ein Angebot für unser Haus bekommen und dies auch angenommen. Die Käufer sind ein sehr nettes Paar aus Holland. Ein riesengrosses Dankeschön geht an Martina, die im Büro von Premiervillas arbeitet. Martina hat sich unglaublich gut um uns und die Kommunikation mit den Käufern und Ämtern gekümmert. Sie war jederzeit für Fragen erreichbar, sogar am Wochenende. Wir haben schon einige Häuser in Deutschland verkauft, wurden aber noch nie so gut betreut. Martina ist ein echtes Goldstück. Herzlichen Dank nochmal an das gesamte Premier Villas Team und weiterhin viel Erfolg. Wir können diesen Makler zu 100 % empfehlen.
Burkhard und Schahni Kalle, Verkäufer , Benidoleig Mai 2018
Nous vous remercions chaleureusement pour votre accueil,vous avez été toujours présents,à l écoute et très prévenants. Tout le long de nos tractations vous avezété là `pour nous rassurer. Une équipe chaleureuse qui est devenue une amie.Martina est active,tolerante,généreuse..toujours un mot de gentil. Chris Karen Martina MERCI de tout notre coeur de nous avoir aidés. Ce fut une belle aventure et nous ne vous oublions pas
Cathy et Pierre vendus à Parcent en Avril 2018
Dear Chris, Martina and Karen Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all for the help, support shown to us when buying our home in Spain. You supported us every step of the way and made the experience much less daunting not only before the sale, but during and after.
Buying our home in Spain has been a huge life changing decision and something we have dreamed about for many years. Thanks for making it a reality.
Simon & Michelle , bought in La Llosa 26th April 2018
Our villa in Alcalali was sold very quickly and efficiently by Premier Villas. We cannot praise Chris, Karen and Martina enough for their help and support at a time when Cy was diagnosed with cancer and we were unable to return to Spain to sort out our personal effects. These were dealt with by the team, packaged and delivered to a close friend of ours. As far as we are concerned, this went far and above the role of an Estate Agent, and all carried out with no extra charges.
We wish Premier Villa every success in the future.
John and Cy Harris, sold in Alcalali 2nd March 2018
Je veux ici simplement dire que Martina ( que nous n'oublierons jamais ) est une dame exceptionnelle, toujours à l'écoute du client, infatigable dans ses démarches. Grâce à Martina, nous sommes parvenus à vendre notre villa malgré les difficultés auxquelles nous avons été confrontés et, même après le vente, elle a continué à nous aider.
Ma chère Martina, même si nous sommes rentrés en Belgique et que, peut-être, nous ne nous reverrons plus, sache que tu occupes une place privilégiée dans nos coeurs; Daniel et moi t'embrassons très fort
Daniel et Michel, vendue à Lliber 2 Mars 2018
Je tiens encore une fois à vous remercier pour l'excellent soutien que vous nous avec apportés lors de l'achat de notre villa à pedreguer.Quelle chance que martina parle le français et a su nous traduire toutes les choses importantes. C'est également elle qui s'est occupée de tous Les documents nécessaires, nous a donné des tuillaux important en ce qui concerne le choix d'une banque. Elle a fait tous Les changements de propriétaire auprès de la companie des eaux et du gaz. Elle était toujours bien préparée et C'est est Elle qui a fait tout le travail du notaire. Celui ci n'avait plus qu'a Lire tout le Texte.
Chris nous a accompagné pour faire notre numéro NIE et a fait preuve de beaucoup de Patience et de gentillesse. Un grand merci à ce duo compétent et efficace. Pour nous Premier villa est surement le Premier choix en agence immobilière.
Fabienne et Georges Zorn heureux propriétaires acheter à Pedreguer 23 Avril 2018
Hi to you all at Premier Villas. I wish l had Martina here in the UK to sort out the mess the solicitors get into here - always two weeks behind. We had no problem in Spain: every aspect of selling my villa was dealt with in a professional way right down to the last detail. Even at the notary Martina was on the ball, she knew as much or more than lawyers did. Karen, Chris & Martina worked their socks off to have all the paperwork sorted out. If I was to ever go back to the Jalon Valley to purchase a villa Premier Villas would be my first stop. Love to all.
Monty & Pauline, sold in Alcalali, January 2018
After 14 years we decided to sell our apartment in Lliber. Chris was extremely positive and posted loads of lovely photos on the Internet, which led to the sale.
From the start Chris and his team were very helpful and, as we were in the UK, obtained a lot of the necessary paperwork on our behalf. Karen was in constant communication, by phone or email, keeping us up to date with progress, which was reassuring. Martina 's linguistic skills were invaluable to us at the Notary's office.
We would not hesitate to recommend Premier Villas when selling a property on the northern Costa Blanca and thank them for guiding us through the experience.
John & Sue , sold in Lliber ,January 2018
I would highly recommend Premier Villas when selling a property in the Xalon area. I accepted an offer within two months of instructing Premier Villas to sell my villa. Chris and Martina were so helpful throughout the whole process - organising and sorting all the paperwork which was a bonus for me as I had moved back to the UK. I was kept up to date throughout the whole process and just had to come back to Spain to sign the papers at the Notary. Many thanks to all at Premier Villas for their professionalism and making the whole process as stress free as possible.
Debbie, sold in January 2018
Premier Villas made the process of selling our property as stress free as possible. I had previously cancelled my telephone link with Movistar/Telefonica and the internet connection and had moved back to the UK. On arriving back in Spain three weeks before the completion date there was lots to do. Martina,Chris and Karen went out of their way to let me use their facilities. It was essential to have this internet connection because of a close family bereavement and I was shown the utmost courtesy, empathy and discretion. Without this Premier link I would have struggled.
Victor and Eileen ,sold in Murla , January 2018
We have lived in Spain for about 5 years and moved around to finally decide just where we wanted to base ourselves. During that time we have met and experienced bad unscrupulous people so we were very apprehensive about buying. Chris and his team gave us confidence and support in finding the right house, that met our specification and in the right position but they never pressurized us. It was interesting how they knew just what we wanted and went out of their way to show us a variety of properties and discarded those that they knew we wouldn’t like.
We couldn’t believe how easy they made the buying process and following all the legal procedures.
We would recommend Premier Villas as the first point of call to anyone wanting to buy in and around Jalon valley.
Graham & Richard ,bought in Alcalali ,January 2018
Na een zoektocht in de wijde omgeving van de Jalon- en Orbavallei, kwamen we o.a. terecht bij Premiervillas.We hadden zeer specifieke ideeën over wat we wilden, ruime villa en veel natuur en geen urbanisatie. Niet zo makkelijk te vinden. Toch hebben Chris en Martina ons kunnen helpen in deze zoektocht en we hebben nu onze droom kunnen realiseren. Ook na de aankoop kunnen we blijven rekenen op de vriendelijke en kordate hulp van Martina. Bedankt!'
Monique & Bruno, gekocht in Lliber januari 2018
We’d like to say a big thank you to all at Premier Villas for the help and guidance you’ve provided over the last few months whilst we found and bought our Spanish holiday home.
We initially viewed properties back in April 2017, on a very wet and cold day. Chris drove us round to several viewings which allowed us to determine exactly what we were looking for in terms of property type and location.
None quite fitted the bill in April so we kept in touch with Chris when we returned to the UK and kept an eye on the website for new properties in the Jalon Valley area.
We were due to return to Spain with friends for a short break in September and decided to visit 2 more properties, one of which suited us perfectly and ticked all the boxes.
After returning to the UK and ensuring we were happy to take the plunge, we put in an offer and set the wheels in motion to purchase our second home.
During the purchase both Chris and Martina proved invaluable, guiding us through the process without any stress. 2 visits and just 3 months later, everything was signed and sealed.
We’d like to thank you in particular for making the daunting tasks stress-free. Obtaining the NIE was so simple with the appointment made ahead of the day and Chris collecting the forms from the bank before taking us to do the paperwork in Denia.
Martina accompanied us on the Notary visit to complete the purchase, and with her amazing multi-lingual skills, made it much less daunting.
The whole process worked very smoothly which is down to the hard work by the team at Premier.
Thank you again for all your help.
Angie and Darin, bought in Jalon 2018 January
When deciding to bye property in spain, we were recommended to pay Premier Villas a visit. After seeing many houses, at different estate agencies. There was no doubt, that Chris and his very friendly team, was those who understood our needs best. Chris found our dream house after having heard what we were looking for and and understood our needs. When we arrived at the office. Chris had already selected a bunch of houses,we vent to see, among them our new house.
Throughout the whole process, there was no rush from anybody. We felt that all of the staff at Premier Villas were there to help us through the whole process. Thank you Martina, Karen and Chris !!
Most important is, that the service we received during the purchase of our new property, do not end from there. As Chris explained to us, "after sale" is another very importent part of the service from Premiervillas. We can highly recommend Premier Villas and the very professional and friendly team. If we for som reason one day are going to sell again, we know who is going to help us.
Anders and Jane. Denmark bought in Benigembla 2018 January.
"La venta de una casa es un ardúo proceso, en que uno se encuentra obstáculos a cada paso que da. Pero con la ayuda de Martina, hemos conseguido llegar hasta el final sin muchos quebraderos de cabeza. Gracias por todo, siempre es bueno porder contar con un equipo de profesionales como el de Premier Villas.
Matthias y Carmina" Jalon. 3 de Enero 2018
After many years of deliberation we decided to follow our hearts and see if we could find “that dream villa” in Spain
We knew the general area we wanted to explore but had no idea which agent to use or where to begin trying to understand the complexities of buying property abroad. More by luck than judgement we stumbled across the Premier Villas web site. We made contact via the web page and from there on in we were in safe hands. Our visit to Spain was all arranged by Chris and his team and within a few weeks we were in Jalon staying in a lovely villa that Chris and his team had arranged.
Over the next couple of days Chris spent time with us to understand our requirements; he then took us around the Pop Valley to show us the various towns and villages so that we could get a feel for the local area before even looking at any properties. On the third day of our visit we started to view the properties he had selected for us - we were bowled over with what we were being shown; Chris obviously had understood exactly what we were looking for. It was during our second viewing day that we were taken to the Villa we went on to buy - the minute we walked through the front door we fell in love with it. The vendors were delightful and very honest, their Villa was amazing.
We made and offer and agreed terms. We were then guided through the buying process and helped no end by all of Chris’s team but in particular Martina. Martina is an extremely capable lady and nothing is too much trouble for her, we would have been lost without her bilingual skills and local knowledge., not to mention her understanding of the legal process. We used the legal services of MA Assesors who were also extremely capable and helpful.
We are now the proud owners of our dream home in Spain - thank you so much Premier Villas you made the whole process of finding and buying a property a pleasure, we would not hesitate to recommend you, the service we received from all of you was second to none!!Many thanks

Wat mij onmiddellijk opviel was de hartelijkheid bij ons eerste contact. Chris was met ons het huis gaan bezoeken en als ervaren makelaar zag hij dan ook dat we echt geïnteresseerd waren, hij heeft dan ook zeer goed onderhandeld met de eigenaars en alles was op twee dagen geregeld. Daarna hebben we Martina ontmoet voor de verdere administratie, Martina was top!! en het verdere verloop was dan ook een succes. Er was ook nog een derde persoon aanwezig in het kantoor en ook zij heeft ongetwijfeld mee gewerkt aan dit succesverhaal . Nogmaals van harte dank voor deze warme samenwerking!

We zijn heel blij dat we na problemen bij onze zoektocht naar een plekje in Spanje bij Premier Villas en bij Chris en zijn team terecht gekomen zijn. Bekommerd om datgene wat we meemaakten hebben Chris en Martina het beste van zichzelf gegeven om onze Spaanse droom toch te kunnen waarmaken. Op een professionele manier hebben ze ons met raad en daad bijgestaan om ons te begeleiden bij de aankoop. Zelfs na de aankoop kunnen we nog rekenen op advies. Bij Premier Villas ben je aan het juiste adres om op een professionele en eerlijke manier eigenaar te worden van een stekje in Spanje. Premier villas doet zijn best voor jou al waren het je beste vrienden.
Professioneel, klantvriendelijk, familiair, luisterbereid, op maat, vriendelijk
Hilde en Koen, gekocht in Benigembla, September 2017
After deciding to sell our much loved villa we approached Premier to handle the sale. Much to our surprise the first people to view the property made an offer which we accepted. We felt they would be perfect for our villa and get on well with our neighbours.
Chris and the team worked tirelessly while the buyers sold their house in England and we organised to move to an apartment locally. All the paperwork was handled in a very professional way dealt with by Martina who was brilliant. (Sorry Chris ,Martina might be asking for a pay rise.)
In our opinion the strength of Chris is his ability to carefully match clients and properties plus attention to detail. We have no hesitation in recommending Premier Villas.

Jeanine se joint à moi pour remercier toute l'équipe de Premier Villas Spain, pour son efficacité concernant la vente de notre maison à Alcalali. En moins d'1 an vous avez trouvé acquéreur, assumé nombreuses formalités et avez toujours été à notre écoute. Les démarches dans 1 pays étranger ne sont pas simples et vous nous avez épaulé, conseillé pour les affronter.
1 grand merci à Martina pour son talent d'interprète, sa disponibilité et sa gentillesse.
Dans l'ensemble, nous sommes satisfaites des prestations de cette agence et la recommanderions à qui aurait 1 bien à vendre.

Dear Chris, Karen and Martina,
We have mostly settled into our new house and the environmen, and we are enjoying the area as a place to live. We both would like to take the opportunity of thanking you for all making a difficult transaction seem very simple.
Chris, thank you for all of your advice and time finding our house. Also thanks for all the trade contacts it´s been most helpful. Karen, thanks for being very helpful and understanding during our numerous phone calls and emails, you are a credit to the company. Martina, your multi-language skills were invaluable before and during the house sale transfer, how you can change from one language to another when there are three languages involved is incredible.
Finally we would highly recommend Premier Villas to all our friends, contacts and family.
Robin and Teresa Tillbrook – Bought Alcalali September 2017
I arrived in Orba on early May intending to buy a property and remain in the area.
Chris Hara, owner of Premier Villas Spain, picked me up from the Hostal for viewings and within 4 days I had made an offer on a property that had just come onto the market with fantastic views across the Jalon valley, close to Benigembla in the mountains but only a forty minute drive from blue flag beaches.
Chris and Martina at Premier Villas supported me throughout the whole process, picking me up and taking me to Denia for national identification documents, advising me of the importance to use an independent solicitor and above all pouring oil on troubled water when I got a little heated with the peculiarities of the Spanish property transfer procedures.
All in all it was a seamless approach by Premier Villas and I moved into my mountain retreat on 2nd August.
Well done to Chris and your team - I owe you a beer or two !!

Long time no see!! Hope you, the family and the Agency are all doing well. :) I really wanted to contact you just to let you know that after many years of looking we have decided to stay in the UK. It was always our dream to come to Spain and you almost made it happen for us for which I thank you greatly. Unfortunately things changed for us and so now we've decided to update our home in the UK and stay put. I want to thank you for all your efforts in the past; you were a great inspiration for someone wanting to move to Spain. I hope all goes well for you and your family in the future.
Very kind regards,
Sue and Norman
We were familiar with the area as friends of ours have a villa in Jalon. We knew exactly what we wanted, something similar to our friends, which enjoys stunning mountain views.
Just before Christmas 2016, we decided to go on a fact finding tour to see what would be available in our price range. We contacted several local agents and arranged 3 days of viewings.
Despite all the agents working extremely hard, we did not see anything that matched our desires. Nothing had a view to match the one that we knew in Jalon.
Throughout our trip, Chris Hara the owner of Premier Villas kept in touch. As he got to understand what we were looking for, he suggested other properties that were not on the original list. This culminated with a visit with Chris to a villa in Parcent that was due to come up for sale with Premier Villas in the New Year. It was exactly what we wanted so we made an offer which was accepted.
At no time was there any hard sell from Chris and his team at Premier, just a genuine desire to help us find the home of our dreams. Throughout the subsequent purchase progress, Chris kept in touch and guided us through. To be honest, it was completely painless. I’ve bought several properties in England and it has never been this easy.
I can’t recommend Chris Hara and Premier Villas enough.
Gary and Amanda, purchased Parcent, May 2017
We put our house on the market with four agents, one of whom was Premier Villas. We had 95% more viewings with Premier than any of the other agents. The viewings were conducted by Chris Hara, the owner of Premier Villas. He approached every viewing as if it was the first, with a well balanced mix of professionalism, enthusiasm and friendliness. Once the sale was agreed, Martina took over the process. She is super efficient and answered all of my queries (no matter how minor) with speed and patience. Selling a house is a stressful business, but Martina smoothed the way perfectly. If we could clone this lady we'd make a fortune! We would recommend Chris Hara and Premier Villas without hesitation.
Mike and Diane, Sold Monte Solana, Pedreguer May 2017
We thank Chris and all his staff at Premier Villas for the tireless help and support they gave us throughout the entire process of selling our villa. We appreciated their professional approach throughout every aspect of the sale. Continuous information and feedback kept us fully in the picture and all our queries were dealt with promptly. An outstanding ability to maintain a positive, realistic, and friendly relationship resulted in our firm confidence that they would achieve what other agents could not. The sale itself was swift, smooth and efficient, just three weeks from offer to completion. We can recommend Chris and his staff to anyone who needs the services of a dedicated team of people who totally understand the needs of their clients and work ceaselessly to achieve a successful outcome.

Forget working 9 till 5, Premier Villas are practically open 24/7 and in our case we had a viewing on our house at 10.30am one morning and by 4.30pm the same day Chris Hara had sold it!
It was the Saturday morning before we were due to fly to England for Christmas when Chris Hara the owner of Premier Villas arrived knocking at our door with 2 clients who wanted to view our property. Chris had tried to contact us but we were in the middle of packing for our trip and hadn´t realised. We just left Chris to show the couple around in the professional manner he always conducts himself in. The couple seemed interested but had other viewings with another local agent. Shortly after Chris rang us saying that the viewing had went well and that the couple wanted to have another viewing immediately i.e. NOW! So Chris came back up with the couple again and after discussions with him and another look around they announced that they wished to go ahead with the purchase and wanted to secure with a deposit and sign the necessary paperwork with us now before we went back to the UK for our holiday. We all went to the Premier office in Jalon, signed the initial paperwork and a holding deposit was made. At no time was anyone under any pressure or any rush it was just a case of right time with the right people, Chris was straight down the line.
We didn’t even have our property advertised for sale at the time as we had taken it off due to the change in the market but were thinking of putting it back on with Premier Villas in the Spring of 2017. But Chris knew that our property was ideal for this couple having listened and taking all their requirements into consideration. He also knew that we wanted to sell so decided to act on his initiative in bringing us all together. If it had not been for the professional manner, total knowledge of the marketplace and the many years experience Chris has in selling properties then this day and our sale would not have happened.
When we returned from our trip to the UK, Martina in the Premier office then guided us through the whole procedure of the sale. Nothing was too much trouble, very efficient and prompt answering of e mails and any questions we had, Martina is second to none, a real gem. Karen in the office was also very helpful and always available to assist, should Martina not be available.
With this wonderful team of expertise in the Jalon Valley, don’t ever consider not to use Premier Villas. Chris Hara and his team turned what is known as a nightmare in trying to sell your property in Spain into a dream for us, it was completely stress free. What a fantastic day and experience.
Our heartfelt thanks and many good wishes to Chris Hara and his team at Premier Villas.

The day we called into Premier Villas to look at property details we new this was no ordinary estate agent. Karen introduced herself and after taking some details she supplied us with some property details to browse through with no pressure. We made an appointment to view some properties and on the day we were introduced to the owner Chris Hara. Chris drove us to view five properties all very different. We had been looking for quite some time but could not find what we were looking for until we viewed a property in Benigembla and we knew that this was the one that we had been looking for.
We would like to thank the whole Premier Villas Team especially Chris (he went out of his way to secure the property for us) Karen and Martina (who responds to every email query and phone call promptly, efficiently and with professionalism.)
We would have no hesitation in using Premier Villas again and would highly recommend them.
John and Denise Bartley - Bought in Benigembla April 2017
We had tried to sell our house in Jalon using all the Estate Agents in our village. Because it was a Town House and more than a hundred years old we never thought it would interest Premier Villas as they seemed to be very much devoted to selling villas in the surrounding village. We therefore never approached Premier Villas but how very very wrong we were.
We were surprised by a knock on our door and how wrong we were when the proprietor of Premier Villas turned out to be Chris Hara who asked if we could show him around the house, garden and swimming pool. We showed Chris out house and he said he could sell it for us for the right client, he felt he could get sale.
Within a few days, true to his word, we had a call from Chris´s office saying he had client who were interested in looking at our house. Two guys from Belgium had been shown our house and were very keen to make a deal. It was very close to Christmas and we were very close to going back to England to spend Christmas with our family. Just before Christmas we received a call from Spain whilst we were at my son´s home in Yorkshire in the UK that the two Belgians wanted to make an offer on our house.
On our return to Jalon we made the meeting with Premier Villas and were looked after by all of Chris´staff, particularly with Martina who could not have been more helpful. By mid-January everything was done and dusted, our house was sold and we moved into our new apartment in Jalon.
A huge THANKS Chris to you, Martina (who is a real gem) and your other staff too. We could not be more delighted.
