Testimonials

FRED G, UK

We sold our javea property in june 2015 having lived here for 10 years. We have to hold our hands up,thinking initially that all estate agents are of the same model. We were wrong, the "javea home finders" team have quality and the required know-how to guide the unwary through the many pit-falls and obstacles that come the clients way, in plain terms, they did what they said they were going to do, and the way that they said they were going to do it. A refreshing Javea experience.

A big THANK YOU to javea home finders.
