"I would like to say how much of an enjoyable experience it has been starting at the Epsom show in September.There was no pressure which to be honest I was half expecting. Instead we were asked what country and area of that country we were interested in and then shown to the person who deals with that country. This is where we met Maria who is a very nice lady who asked us to tell her what we wanted.All throughout the talks with Maria it was a conversation as to what we wanted and from Maria it was advice and guidance.From this we arranged a viewing in the area of Torrevieja Spain.At the airport we met Andrew who was already there waiting for us. Andrew is a very nice man who could not be more helpful. I must stress again as it is important to me and probably a lot of other people that there was no pressure into doing anything, just help and information and answers to any questions we had.With the help of Fernando we looked at properties and the second one we saw we knew we were going to have, but we still wanted to look at others and did so until the middle of the next day. I lost count at how many we looked at. Andrew and Fernando both knew we were going to have the second property from the outset but were more than happy to keep showing us around.I am in a hotel room now in Torrevieja writing this. Tomorrow we move into our new permanent residence in Spain.One reason I am writing this is to tell you how easy it has been to move to Spain permanently or for someone else a holiday home through the Ideal Homes International.But the main reason is to write how genuine Maria, Andrew and Fernando are. They are or have been living the dream and I now feel through them that we belong to a very caring and helpful group of people.
