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 May 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

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
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
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
Premier Villas made the process of selling our property as stress free as possible. I had previously cancelled my telephone link with Movistar/Telephonic 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, January 2018
When deciding to buy property in spain, we were recommended to give 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 from Denmark. Bought in Benigembla, January 2018
"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!
Marie Christine and Jonathan, bought in Lliber, October 2017
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.
Sandy and Ginny Sanderson, Sold September 2017
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 !!
Robert Warren – Bought in Benichembla July 2017
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.
Regards Les and Jenny Holmes - Sold Alcalali May 2017
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.
Kay & David Goodey - Sold Parcent May 2017
We asked four local estate agents to value and market our property. Within one week Premier Villas had three couples looking at our house, none from the other three local estate agents. We had in total six viewings with six different couples through Premier Villas that viewed our house resulting in one couple that were very interested who after a few viewings made us an offer and this was only after only three weeks working with Chris at Premier Villas.
We took no part when the viewings were conducted Chris Hara the owner of Premier Villas worked tirelessly when giving the tour of our house. We accepted a final offer after only four weeks, we still had no viewings from the other local estate agents. As the paperwork on our house needed updating Martina in the Premier office set about making sure all the documentation was updated, we did not do a thing everything was taken care of by Chris Hara´s Premier team. The 10 percent deposit was put into our bank account by our buyers and when we went to the Notary with Martina we received the remainder of the sale via a bank transfer. We have since advised three of our friends to use Premier and they also have now sold by Chris Hara and his team. Many many thanks to Chris and the Premier team .
Danny and Kay Warner – Sold Murla March 2017
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 around the house and he said he could sell it for us for the right client, he felt he could get a sale.
Within a few days, true to his word, we had a call from Chris´s office saying he had clients 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.
Keith and Nora Tordoff - sold in Jalon January 2017
We just wanted to say many thanks for all your hard work regarding our purchase. It probably wouldn´t have happened without you.
Andy and Anne Lawrenson - Bought in Parcent February 2017
Na een lange zoektocht met de nodige problemen zijn we uiteindelijk in de Jalon vallei terecht gekomen. We waren direct gecharmeerd door deze mooie vallei en meteen verliefd op het huis dat we in Jalon uiteindelijk hebben gekocht.
Het klikte direct met Chris en zijn team van Premier Villas. Zij hebben ons ongelofelijk goed begeleid, en daarvoor onze speciale dank aan Martina.
Zoals altijd als buitenlander, ben je niet volledig op de hoogte van alle wetgevingen en dergelijke, en net daarom is zo een fantastische en professionele begeleiding zeer belangrijk.
Zowel de aankoopbegeleiding als de na service zijn top.
Hartelijk dank hiervoor; een echte aanrader, zeker als je er komt wonen, net als wij.

We would like to thank Chris Hara and the team at Premier Villas Spain SL. They made the purchase of our villa as smooth and easy as possible. They talked us through every step and took the stress out of the whole process. Thanks to Chris and his team, highly recommended.
Mark and Alison Day – Bought in Jalon 2017.
Having been made aware of all the stress,obstacles and possible disasters awaiting you in the process of selling a property in Spain we have to say how lucky we were in opting for Premier Villas Spain SL. The whole process was made as stress free as humanely possible by Chris Hara and the Premier team especially by the care and hard work given by Martina. She held our hand from start to finish and made everything so much easier for us, Both during and after the sale." Thanks again to Chris and Premier Villas Spain SL
John Hawksby – Sold in Alcalali January 2017
Chris Hara with his energy and friendly, professional office team led us through the minefield of selling our property, then buying a new property both through Premier,with Martina being the defusing completion expert. All of the possible problems that were encountered in our transactions were quickly recognised and speedily dealt with so relieving us of having to sort them out. Based on our experiences we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Chris Hara and Premier Villas Spain as a selling or buying agent.
Jacky and Stan Hatley Sold Alcalali October 2016 and Bought October 2016
We came to the Jalon valley for the first time this year and immediately fell for it! We made three visits to the area in March, June and October 2016. In March Chris showed us some properties, but none of them quite fitted the bill. In June Chris showed us some more properties and we put an offer in on one of these and paid a reservation fee. On the third visit we bought the property. During this third visit, Martina came with us to the Police station for our NIE numbers, the bank to collect our banker’s drafts and the notary to complete the purchase. We found her help invaluable and a lot less stressful than we envisaged! We intend to use Premier Villas Spain for our Property & Rental Management in the future and cannot recommend them enough. A big thanks to Chris and the team.
Jennie & Robert Greenway – Bought property in Alcalali, October 2016
Chris Hara the owner and the admin staff at Premier were excellent . They worked hard to ensure all paperwork required to sell was up to date , and that viewings were maximised. The house sold relatively quickly in a difficult market and they then helped every step of the way to make sure the sale went through as smoothly as possible. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Chris and Premier Villas Spain SL!
Linda Cheese – Sold Benigembla September 2016
" Right from the start Chris Hara the owner of Premier Villas Spain SL was very positive and enthusiastic about selling our property and throughout the transaction him and his team remained calm and reassuring despite some stressful situations! In particular Martina who dealt with the legal side of the purchase. We were in constant contact with Martina who always dealt with our many phone calls both professionally and promptly; never once leaving us without a response. We felt she went out of her way to put us at ease throughout the whole process and we would certainly recommend Chris Hara and his company Premier Villas Spain SL to anyone."
Jennie McColl – Sold Lliber June 2016
“We have used Premier Villas Spain SL to buy and sell 2 homes for us. They combined creativity with tenacity and patience. These are attributes you need in any property market anywhere in the world. Even more so in Spain. The best recommendation is that we always return to Chris Hara and the team. Thank you for all your help!”
Clive Pinder – Sold Parcent July 2016
We would just like to thank Chris and the sales team of Premier Villas Spain in Jalon for the smooth running of the sale of our villa on Monte Pego.

Wij zijn uit Brugge Belgie afkomstig ,een goed jaar geleden hebben wij besloten om het wat rustiger aan te doen.Mijn man had een hele drukke huisartsenpraktijk,en door een toeval een aanbieding gekregen om hier in spanje te werken.
Niet zo druk meer,na eerst in altea een huis gehuurd te hebben,zijn we beginnen zoeken om een huis te kopen.
Ik kan zeggen dat ik heel veel huizen en agentschappen gezien heb,met niet altijd mooie ervaringen!
Tot ik hier in xalo(jalon) terecht kwam .Het team van premiervilla is super vriendelijk en het belangrijkste eerlijk!Ze helpen met alles! Want een aankoop van een huis in spanje moet goed opgevolgd worden .
Niet alles gaat er hier eerlijk aantoe,de wetgeving wat betreft verhuur en verkoop van huizen is niet zoals bij ons!
Bij dit agentschap zijn ze super eerlijk ,Martina is professioneel spreekt nederlands spaans en zoveel meer…Zelfs nu na maanden kan ik nog altijd rekenen op haar en Cris,met vragen over alles en nog wat ze vinden altijd een oplossing.!
Wat voor mij toch belangrijk is!

Jan & Adriana - Gekocht in Tormos Februari 2016
Ongeveer een jaar geleden zijn wij beginnen zoeken naar een huis in de regio van calpe, Altea. Door toeval hebben we kennis gemaakt met Fred uit Turnhout. Hij zei ons dat we eens moesten gaan kijken bij premier villa's. Hij had daar een tijdje geleden een huis gekocht in de urbanisatie vallparaiso in Jalon.
We zijn met Chris naar verschillende huizen gaan kijken. Hij drong niets op, wat we tof vonden. Toen viel ons oog op een huisje in vallparaiso.
We zijn gaan kijken met Chris en hebben het gekocht.
Martina heeft ons heeeeeel goed geholpen met de aankoop. Hadden we een vraag zij wist overal antwoord op en mailde altijd direct terug. Veel dank daarvoor Martina. Ze helpt ons nog steeds. We zijn heel blij met ons huisje en we hopen dat we er nog heel lang, gelukkig mogen blijven.

Wir können nur Gutes über Premiervillas berichten. Der Verkauf unseres Hauses sowie die gesamte Abwicklung hat reibungslos geklappt. Ein grosses Lob müssen wir vor allem Dir Martina, aussprechen. Du hast dich um alles gekümmert und warst immer für uns da. Auch mit der Bezahlung und Überweisung des Geldes nach Deutschland gab es keinerlei Probleme. Dafür nochmal vielen Dank und weiterhin gute Geschäfte.

We are extremely happy with the treatment we received from Chris and his team at Premier Villas Spain SL before, during, after our purchase of our property in Alcalali. We have previously owned property abroad but have never experienced such a professional treatment. Even the smallest challenges are resolved and the team are always ready to help and always do it with a smile. We cannot thank Martina enough and it is always safe to have you in Spain to contact. We can only recommend Premier Villas Spain SL for all. They have a thorough knowledge of the area and are always ready to help.
Thanks Chris, Martina, Karen and the team!
Stig Friisbæk (Denmark) Bought in Alcalali December 2015
Suki and I would like to say a very big thank you to all the team at Premier Villas for their professionalism, help and success in selling our villa. We had had our villa on the market for some time with other agents but when we approached Chris and his team, they found us a buyer within a few days and as Chris predicted straight away, the sale was good and everything went so smoothly, it was difficult to believe it was Spain. Chris is obviously really good at accurate predictions it comes I guess from experience and a long successful time in the business.
Chris and Karen were brilliant in keeping us in the loop. Frequent calls to us in UK within miinutes of each stage in the progress happening, we could not have asked for more. It was almost as if we were there in the office every day. Chris ran around linking up the lawyers and collected documents and paperwork and Karen and Martina processed them with skill and clarity explaining to us in clear terms all the Spanish documentation we did not even know we had and certainly didn't always fully understand. Personnal attention from Martina and great flexibility at the office of the Notary was instrumental in the final signing of all the paperwork so that the villa was sold on time. From start to finish in six weeks. Fantastic. Show me that anywhere else in the world let alone Spain.To Chris and all the team at Premier Villas a very big thank you for a wonderful, professional job.
Suki and Robin Munday – Sold Parcent December 2015
We would like to express our thanks to Chris, Karen and Martina at Premier Villas Spain for such a genuinely friendly, efficient and professional service in selling our villa. We have had very recent experience of estate agents here in the UK selling the property of my wifes parents with a far from satisfactory service particulary in regard to their communication. With Premier they have always contacted us promptly by email, text and phone removing a lot of the unknows which cause the stress when selling in Spain. Well done again to Chris and his Team at Premier and many many thanks.
Bob & Susie Farr, West Dorset UK – Sold Alcalali December 2015
It was early 2013 that we first met the team of Premier Villas.
We were making plans to move to the Costa Blanca and discovered the Jalon Valley, one of the prettiest places we know. In order to find some information on the house market we called on Premier Villas.
Although we told them that we were only doing some research and definitely not ready to buy, they took all the time in the world to help us. When we returned in October 2014 we were welcomed as old friends.
We decided that we really wanted to taste living in Jalon and were looking for a rental place for 4 month, early 2015. Although we were to bring 2 dogs and a cat Chris immediately had a house in mind that we ended up renting.
These 4 month made us decide that we wanted to buy a house in the area.
We discussed our wishes with Chris and he fully understood what we were looking for.
We saw a lot of houses, however the ones that Chris thought to be suitable for us all ended up with a very high ranking. After we made our choice, the buying process was professionally supervised by Chris and his team. Our special thanks to Martina and Karen, who were always there to answer the many questions we had. We now live in our house for 2 months and we know that we made the right choice.
We would recommend Premier Villas to everyone who wants to buy a house in the Jalon Valley.
Reinout La Grouw – Bought in Lliber December 2015
We must thank Chris and the team at Premier for way they helped us through the process of buying our house in particular when information from third parties was not as forthcoming as we would have wished. We would like to particularly thank Karen who helped us on a number of occasions putting our minds at rest as we were back in the UK. We would recommend Chris and their services to anyone thinking of buying in the Jalon valley.
Dave Merritt – Bought Murla November 2015
We would like to thank Chris and all his team at Premier Villas for such EXCELLENT service. Our villa was sold in a matter of weeks to a lovely couple who we have now become good friends. We would definitely recommend Premier Villas to anyone that wants to sell or buy. Once again, thanks very much for all your help.
Brian and Pam – Sold in Pedreguer October 2015
Chris and the Team were totally outstanding and very professional, especially as we did not have any pre knowledge of what was entailed in moving to Spain. They helped us find our dream home and also provided us with everything we needed to do prior to purchasing the house. We could have not asked for more. Premier offer a more one to one service right from buying to completing. We could not have asked for a better service and commitment from them We would like to thank them all for all their help and would highly recommend Premier to anyone planning a move to Spain or indeed buying a holiday property.
Mick and Julie Watts – Bought in Parcent October 2015
John and I bought our propery last September in Alcalali, but have lived in the Jalon Valley for over 8 years now as we loved the area so much. We had rented properties in the past from Premier Villas and had found that Chris and his team were always so friendly helpful and efficient, any problems we had were dealt with straight away. Whenever we popped into the office for whatever reason, we were always greeted with happy smiling faces that could not do enough to help us. This is why when we decided to buy a property for the first time we were delighted to go with Premier Villas. We knew we would get an excellent service, which we did and much, much more. Whenever we had any concerns over anything during the process of buying our property we always had our minds put at ease immediately as that is what Chris and his team do best. We would undoubtedly recommend anyone who is thinking of buying, selling or renting a propery in the Jalon Valley to choose Premier Villas as they are most definitely second to none.
Pat & John Reseigh – Bought in September 2015
Dear Chris and your Great Team, Just to thank you for the help and kindness shown to Dave and myself in selling our house in Sagra. Nothing was too much trouble for you, we appreciated how busy you were, but you always found time for us to give us peace of mind, including Karen. Our sale was small compared to large villas but you were professional and treated us just the same, which is a credit to Premier Villas Spain. Thank you once again. Sincere Best Wishes.
Dave and Eileen Burrell – Sold in Sagra October 2015
It would be a pleasure to add to the testimonial write ups; finding such a professional and trust-worthy company as Premier Villas Spain to co-ordinate our villa purchase has been the key factor to us finally deciding to buy a property in Spain and I would recommend your services to any prospective clients.
We have been visiting friends in the Jalon Valley region for a number of years and had decided that we would like to purchase a villa of our own in this beautiful area one day. On our latest visit, in April this year, we made a spontaneous visit to the Premier offices in Jalon to test the water and see what was available; four months later we completed the purchase of our own villa in the village of Benigembla.
Our biggest concerns had always been the horror stories we had heard about unscrupulous sellers, complex regulations and the general difficulties surrounding the purchase of property in foreign countries, especially as we work overseas and could not be available in Spain for the much of the purchasing formalities. A few initial meetings with Chris the owner satisfied our concerns and fears to the extent that we decided to put an offer in for one of the properties we viewed, prior to leaving at the end of our visit.
The entire purchasing process, from the negotiation of the initial purchase through to the completion of sale was completed remotely and smoothly, with ourselves working in Central Africa, save for a one week visit in June to sign off essential documentation. Premier co-ordinated the entire process for us, including the recommendation of a local lawyer (essential), contacts for mortgage services (if required) and for banking services. This process would have been very difficult (if not impossible) for us complete without the assistance of Chris and his Team.
We now look forward to the pleasure having the Premier Team assisting us with the care and maintenance of our villa, until we take up residence there in the future.
We cannot thank Chris and his team at Premier enough for the assistance that they have provided in making our dream purchase come true and would recommend them to prospective clients without hesitation; we are very satisfied and happy customers!
Andy & Teresa Legg – Bought in Benigembla August 2015
Right from the first encounter with Premier Villas Spain we realised that we were going to be looked after with care and attention. Chris the owner and his very experienced team seem to us to have all the knowledge that someone looking for a Spanish property would need. Appointments were kept and viewings were pleasurable and informative. We were shown all the villas that we wanted to visit and given plenty of time to look around the premises by ourselves.The purchasing procedures were efficient and made simple by Chris and the Girls. We have kept in contact with Premier Villas since our purchase of our villa mainly through Martina who has been very kind and helpful to our queries. We would certainly recommend Chris and Premier Villas Spain to anyone looking to live or rent in this beautiful country.
Yours Sincerely Mr and Mrs. R.O´Dell – Bought in Senija July 2015
We started looking for a property in 2015 somewhere with a good all year round climate and not far away for accessibility with flights etc and we chose Spain. After several evenings glued to the computer to view the many offers of Real Estate, we made numerous appointments with various agents which was a tough job! Soon, we realised that the search would not be easy, and one disappointment followed another. Admittedly, I do not think we were the easiest customers as we had several criteria that had to be met regarding privacy, beautiful views, south facing, very bright, pretty modern, nice pool ......... etc . After about 5 days touring and being very disappointed we made an appointment with Chris Hara, the owner of Premier Villas Spain SL in Jalon. Chris put us immediately at ease and listened carefully to our needs, was open to all criticism, forced nothing and remained professional and friendly.
After a busy day visiting numerous houses, we had one more to go. Chris had saved the best until last and bingo, a beautiful home! Still, we were not convinced as this was more or less unknown territory. However Chris did not push us as this was a major investment for us he told us to relax go back to Belgium and if we wanted to see the property again when next over he would be show us again. Chris was really great about everything and we appreciate him still as he told us we had to be 100% sure.
At the next visit the following month we were still in love with the house itself, but still had doubts about the situation, as said before we were not the easiest customers! Chris took us out again on his free Saturday afternoon touring around to explore the region and to demonstrate the many possibilities to let us be 100% sure. Chris and Premier are SUPER!!!! We are delighted with everything and also want to give special thanks to Martina Vandenbergh, a delightful and professional team member at Premier Villas!
Martina speaks Dutch, always ready with solutions to all possible problems, knows all necessary information, gives immediate response and is always correct and very friendly. The service did not stop with the sale as nothing is too much trouble at Premier who are always available to help and we now have our property in their good hands to property manage.Thank you to Chris and his wonderful team at Premier Villas Spain.
Frank & Isabelle Tavernier – Bought in Lliber June 2015
I think just about every search for a new home in Spain starts on the Internet. After a few e-mails sent to various Estate Agencies, I was inundated with offers. I was also contacted by other firms, so even more to look at!
After a month or two of looking at photos, visiting various websites and making phone calls our decision was made. We went for a detached villa, with at least 3 bedrooms, garden, swimming pool and most importantly, privacy.
Arrangements were made, dates agreed, plane tickets and hotels booked.
Then one night, I received a phone call from Chris, the owner of Premier Villas Spain in Jalon. Chris asked me what I was looking for and whether he could show me some villas and arrange an appointment with me during my stay in Spain. Arriving in Alicante, I immediately began the hunt for the perfect house. After five days, and fifty houses with several different agents, I had my fill of Spain as nobody had really listened to what I was looking for, it was looking for me a big waste of time!
However on day six in Spain, I finally met with Chris at his office of Premier Villas Spain in Jalon. I thought this will be another lost day. But when Chris showed me the first house I thought fantastic, this is almost what I’m looking for. House Number 2 even better! Finally someone had listened to me not just wanting me to buy a home regardless.
House number three, the prize jack pot! Yes, at last we had a winner. I made an offer almost immediately. Chris explained to me everything from A to Z the procedures how to buy a property in Spain. Chris and his team at Premier Villas Spain have guided me from start to finish and gone the extra mile! With Chris I've never met anyone as experienced with so much energy, time and passion, and believe me, I´m not one to be taken lightly in business or when it comes to buying real estate.
But this level of service does not stop, Chris and his team at Premier now look after my investment in Spain sorting out the gas connection, internet, garden, pool, painting, etc., all my requirements are met and dealt with as asked.
As Chris says "trust me", you can rest assured that everything will be fine. And to Chris I say: I came to buy a house in Spain, but I would never had guessed I would have gained a friend . Thank You.
Dirk Linssen – Bought in Murla May 2015
We want to thank Premier Villas Spain on the excellent, proper and expert handling in the sale of our villa in Lliber. Communication was always fast and clear. On every email quickly became clear and very friendly response. The telephone contact with anyone from the entire Team was very enjoyable. Every visit to the office we were very well received and attended to. Even with ancillary matters such as when terminating our telephone contract with Movistar, helped by the excellent Martina. No question is too much! We have the impression that the buyers are approached in an equally correct and friendly manner and supervised and that undoubtedly contributed to a good atmosphere between the seller and buyer during and after the negotiations until the notary transfer.
In short: "Premier Villas Spain, we can highly recommend!" We wish Chris the owner and all his Team continued business success, happiness and not the least good health now and in the future.
Annie and Will Gerrits, sold Partida Collado Lliber - May 2015
'We bought our villa in Alcalali using Premier Villas Spain in May 2015 after spending lots of time looking in the area. The team in Jalon were very helpful and knowledgeable. Chris the owner managed to get us a great deal and really put himself out to help and to inform us of how things worked in Spain and particularly in the local area. The transaction went very smoothly from start to finish and we cannot thank Chris and his team enough.'
Karen and Clive – Bought Alcalali May 2015
Hello I decided to sell our villa August 2014, my first instinct was to go to Premier Villas Jalon where we met the owner Christopher Hara. I really took to Chris beceause he was straight down the line and told us the facts . He was so professional as were Karen and Martina in the office . I knew I chose the right agent to sell our Villa and he did!
Steve Morton – Sold in Pedgregeur May 2015
We would like to thank Chris and his team at Premier Villas Spain. We feel that we have bought a good property for a good price and are very happy with your office for the excellent service we have received. We are also pleased to have someone in your office where the same language is spoken as we know where to go when we need help.
Patrick en Linda Van Malderen – Bought in Murla April 2015
To Chris and his team,
Premier Villas Spain have been fantastic!
We have sold the house from the Netherlands without having to go to Spain! We didn’t have to have the hassle of having to fly to Spain or go to the Premier office everything was done via telephone and emails with Chris and his staff helping us aresponding immediately to emails and telephone communication which was really good. Chris reacted alertly and knew what was happening and arranged everything.
In this way, selling your house in Spain whilst not having to be present yourself, I can absolutely recommend it! We can truly recommend Premier Villas Spain as you will be in good hands.
Herbert and Anita Hertz sold Parcent April 2015
Hello Chris and the whole team,
After we looked at many houses with different agents, we arrived in January 2015 at the office of Premier Villas Spain in Jalon. Through the owner Chris we found our dream villa in Parcent.
We received a good personal and professional care in the procedures to buy the villa. From the very beginning, we had a good, reliable and professional relationship with Chris. From preliminary to the actual date of the notary Chris always provided us with solutions and viable proposals. It was particularly important to us that Premier was a reliable partner, because we were not on site.
Even now, after buying our villa, we are very satisfied with the after sales service we have received. Chris helps quickly and easily on all property matters and has patience for all our question, nothing is too much trouble.
Thanks again for this excellent cooperation and also to your professional and friendly team.
Klaus and Brigitte Ritsche bought Parcent April 2015
We have recently purchased a villa in Alcalali, through Premier Villas. We had initially visited the Jalon valley on the recommendation of a friend and after a couple of visits decided that we wanted to buy a holiday home there. We called into Premier Villas in Jalon for an initial browse, and then once back home we stayed in touch with the owner, Chris Hara, to communicate and clarify our wishes for a suitable property. Chris and his team have been very professional and supportive throughout, helping us to draw up a shortlist of villas to view in October 2014. Chris seemed to understand our needs very well, and helped us to find the right villa within a very short time searching. With his help we were quickly able to agree a sales price with the vendor. We are absolutely delighted to now be the owners of a wonderful villa in Spain! Now that we are back in the UK, Premier Villas are assisting us with our plans to turn this into our dream holiday home. We have been very impressed with their customer service and responsiveness – it would be fair to say that we could not have done any of this without their help! All in all we are very satisfied customers and we are looking forward to many happy holidays in our fabulous new home! We are truly delighted with the villa and very happy with the service we’ve received from Chris Hara and all the team at Premier Villas Spain.
Henry & Marie Varney – Bought in Alcalali January 2015
We visited Premier Villas in September 2014 as we had noticed that the villa we were staying in was up for sale. We met with Chris and his team and he explained very clearly about all aspects of buying a property in Spain and specifically about the different types of land that properties are built on and the impact that this can have on the property. Once we arrived home Chris and his Team were able to arrange everything for us from the Solicitor right through to organising the internet connection. We completed on the villa in December 2014 and are very happy with all the help that Premier Villas gave us throughout. They made it a very stress free process and we would recommend them to anyone looking to buy. We never thought we would come home from our holiday with a holiday home of our own!
Paul & Claire Croombs
Congratulations to you for reaching your 10th anniversary and to the Premier Villas Spain Team. Quite an achievement when the difficult trading conditions in Spain over much of that time are taken into consideration. We have been customers of yours for nearly nine years. We bought our villa off Premier, let it through Premier and receive villa management services through Premier. We have no doubt that we will sell it through Premier as well when the time comes. Great service from a great team. I am sure you will go from strength to strength over the next 10 years.
Thank you so much for inviting us to your Christmas Charity evening. Unfortunately we are in England at that time and will not be able to get over to attend but we will raise an anniversary glass to you and the team and are sure you will celebrate in style.
Best Regards -
Rick & Linda Waghorn – Existing Clients Parcent
Our House Sale and House Purchase Experiences. Because the market has been fairly flat for the last few years we had been putting off the decision to place our house on the market. In truth we did so earlier this year with no real expectations of a quick sale. However Premier Villas Spain turned out to be the perfect estate agent for us. Chris Hara the owner marketed our house and then only went and found a buyer for us within a few short weeks. We were delighted, and our friends astounded, at the speed of sale. To add to our joy they also had on their books a house for sale which was perfect for our needs, so with very little effort and stress we had managed to sell and buy within a very short space of time. We are extremely happy in our new home. Their assistance during the selling and buying stages was also top notch. Not only would we gladly recommend their services to our friends, but we already have. Best Wishes,
Graham and Maureen Quirk - Sold in Jalon, Bought in Alcalali October 2014
Where do we start! The truth is we did not know where to start. We have been visiting the beautiful Jalon Valley for the past 2 years . We fell in love with the sunshine, wine, wonderful food and beautiful views. Our search began around a year ago when we met Chris and his team at Premier. Chris the owner, supported us through our search and we found our dream property high on the hills with the most magnificent views of the valley. It has been a big step for us to buy our property and we have had our wobbles, however with the sound advice and total professionalism from Chris and our questions answered by Karen the process has been really smooth. Chris organised everything from our search, mortgage advice, bank accounts to removals and unpacking. Premier came with us to the notary for support and the Team has helped us to make our house a home and we look forward to lazy days in the sun on our Naya, looking out on to the valley. Overall our experience with Premier has been fantastic and we would recommend Premier Villas Spain to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. We named our home "Vive la Vie" which is what we plan to do "Live the Life".
Michelle, Dave, Erin and Adam x – Bought Jalon October 2014
We bought our property through Premier Villas Spain so we were already aware of their very professional service as buyers. We are now happy to report the same very high level of client care as sellers. From the outset, the valuation and initial advice regarding marketing our property turned out to be spot on and within a few weeks, Chris, the owner, secured us an acceptable offer on the property. The negotiation with the buyers and ourselves was handled extremely well and Chris managed to accommodate all the requirements of both parties with regard to completion date and furniture which led to a trouble free initial sales contract and deposit payment. From then on, Alison took over the process and guided us towards our completion date making sure we had all the correct documentation to present to the buyers lawyer. At all times, the whole Premier team were cheerful and efficient in their dealings with us, putting us at ease and helping to ensure a smooth completion. With Premier in charge on completion day, the visit to the notary office was managed in such an efficient manner that the sale was completed in front of the notary in just 40 minutes. We would have no hesitation in recommending Premier Villas for buying or selling a property.
Bernard and Gill Power Sold Alcalali (June 2014)
We were recommended Premier Villas Spain through an acquaintance who had recently bought a villa and a townhouse and who was very happy and satisfied with their professionalism and service. After many phone calls and emails we made an appointment November 2013.
Once we arrived at their Office we were very well received and discussed together with Chris (the owner) what our wishes and budget were. Out of this meeting came around twenty opportunities. The next three days were spent on visiting the villas together with Chris and a top 3 saw the daylight and we took a decision that same week. As on the 1st of May 2014 we are now the proud owners of a magnificent villa matching all our desires.
Special thanks to Chris and his Team for helping us out with any kind of problems we’ve met. Also we recommend all future buyers to appeal a lawyer/consulting agency which does all the research regarding outstanding bills and building permits.Our thanks to Esther & Maïte for this.
To sum it up, Premier Villas Spain give outstanding service and professionalism, strongly recommended!
Paul and Christine Serrure – Bought in Murla (May 2014)
To Chris and all the staff at Premier Villas Spain Estate Agents,
We thank you very much for your professional, cheerful, and competent attitude that you conveyed during the successful sale of our house in Alcalali. Kindest regards
Joe and Olive Coleman – Sold in Alcalali (May 2014)
After having visited over 40 properties in nearly 1 month with different real estate companies and not having found an appropriate villa, although we had made a very detailed description of the property we were looking for, we rather by chance bumped into Premier Villas Spain in Jalon. Based on our description we selected some properties in their portfolio and listening to our requirements they suggested us to also visit some others. It was one of these properties that we finally bought, which makes it clear that they perfectly understood our wishes and needs. After the decision was made Chris the owner, took all the necessary time to explain the next steps of the buying process and guided us through every single paragraph of the reservation contract. Once this hurdle was done we had no time left to stay in Spain. Since the completion date was planned for 5 months later, Chris suggested us to come over after some time so that we could arrange NIE-numbers etc., check if everything was finished as agreed, and discuss outstanding points, if there were any. No problem, while we were back in Belgium, everything organized in a very professional, efficient and attentive way the necessary things, such like NIE-numbers, and prepared all the paperwork necessary for the completion of the contract, always keeping us informed by phone or email about what needed to be done. Therefore this comment would not be complete without a special thanks to the Premier staff.
Magda and Andreas – Purchased in Jalon (March 2014)
We just wanted to say "Thank You" to Chris and his Team at Premier Villas Spain for all of your hard work, support and professional knowledge during the sale of our property. We know by the remarks from other professionals how lucky we have been and just cannot thank you enough!
Harry & Vicky Costigan Sold Jalon (April 2014)
We have recently purchased a property through Premier Villas Spain and throughout our search we have found Premier always very attentive to our requirements. Chris took us to view numerous properties and was always very informative and focused on what we were looking for. Premier has helped us throughout with all our paperwork and legal requirements and nothing has been too much trouble; we would have been lost without their continuous help and they continued to help us after the sale. All the office staff are very friendly and we can recommend Premier to any prospective Buyer for an efficient and professional service.
Shelagh & John Mason Purchased Alcalali (April 2014)
Finding a home in Spain was a very gradual process for us. Over two and a half years, we worked with Premier Villas to find the home that was perfect. From the beginning, they understood that this would take time, and over the course of three visits to the beautiful Jalon Valley, our vision took shape and in January 2014 we started making this a reality, completing at the end of April. The help and advice from Premier Villas has been simply outstanding. The buying process having been completed, we now realise that the service goes way beyond that, Chris and his staff have made themselves available to us at every stage. Obtaining NIE numbers, opening a bank account, accompanying us to the Notary Office, even for the down-to-earth basics like sorting out TV and Wi-fi, Premier has been there for us at every stage. We can also rest assured that with Gareth and the Premier Pool service maintaining our swimming pool this will be up and running for each visit. We are looking forward to our first summer enjoying the Jalon Valley and its unique villages, knowing that the team are there for us if needs be. We thoroughly recommend their services to anyone exploring the possibilities of relocating to or purchasing a second home in this part of the Costa Blanca.
John and Chris (Christine) Carter – Purchased in Murla (April 2014)
Where do we start with this review as there are so many good things to say… so I will start at the very beginning? First of all we would like to say that the process of buying a villa and our customer service experience with Premier Villas was excellent from beginning to end. We met with Chris Hara – the owner of Premier Villas and found him to be very knowledgeable about Jalon Valley and very honest with his commentary about the area. Straight away we knew we would get on with him as he told us the truth, always answered our e-mails and called us when necessary. You may say, that is what you would expect but believe me this is Spain and not everyone has Premier Villa’s work ethics! We had already picked some villas we would like to see from Premier Villa’s website and Chris sat down with us and went through them and offered his advice on whether they met our criteria. Some of them were eliminated straight away by Chris for various reasons as he understood what we wanted. Chris drove us around to all the villas, giving his opinion and taking on board our comments. Based on our comments and the criteria we had given him Chris also suggested a few more villas to us that he thought more suited our requirements and surprise, surprise one of them was the one that we finally ended up buying – we are sure he knew what we wanted and what suited us better than we did! He showed a lot of patience with us both especially as we kept changing our minds, changing the budget and not agreeing with each other about what we wanted which must have made his job impossible and very frustrating sometimes but he stuck with us and politely and friendly referred us back to our original requirements that at the end of the day had not really changed- well done to him as it is so easy to go off track when you have looked at so many. We would also like to say a big thank you to the Premier Staff who held our hand through the process and have been a godsend to us – they arranged the appointment to obtain our NIEs and took us there to pick them up, translated for us when we could not understand what they were saying (they only speak Spanish) , came with us to the Bank in Jalon to help us open a Bank Account and came with us to meet with the Gestor in Benidoleig. We are not sure what we would have done without them. This appears to be the service that Chris and his team give to everyone who is starting out in Spain and believe me it is welcomed when you do not know your way around the process and speak very little Spanish. Even after we decided we would buy the villa, Chris was there for us for when we started to get a few wobbles and believe me this does happen as it is a big step but now that we are in our Villa we could not be happier as we absolutely love it. We would also like to thank Karen who had to put up with us constantly popping in, asking questions, dropping things off, asking for pictures to be sent over etc etc . Sometimes they were most probably silly questions but they were all happy to offer advice and they are all still there for us even though we have now completed on the sale. We do not know how our move to Spain would have gone without Premier Villas and all their help but we are sure we would not now be sitting in our villa with a glass of wine, looking at the beautiful mountains and thinking how lucky we are. For anyone who is reading this – good luck with your search for your new villa and if you use Premier Villas we are sure you will receive the excellent customer and personal service we received.
Corinne and Andy – Purchased in Jalon (March 2014)
From the very first minute, inside the Premier Villas Spain Offices, we knew that Chris and his staff were very keen to sell our house, unlike some other companies who only wanted buyers to walk into their offices. Premier wanted our house on their books and did an excellent job on their Website putting together the important particulars of our house and was backed up with some very professional pictures. This resulted in a lot of interest from potential buyers across Europe, despite the difficult market conditions. Chris is a realist, knows his business and the local housing market well. He and his qualified staff gave us sound advice on all aspects of selling a house. They even handled all the legalities of our house sale. We felt that Premier gave us a very personal service and nothing was too much trouble. Of course, our house sold and we were delighted with the result. We would unreservedly recommend Premier to anyone who is thinking of selling or buying a house in Spain. You will get good service, professionalism and a result.

Patience, listening, understanding, courtesy, smiling, honesty is their SLOGAN. We don’t have enough words to say to them thanks for their help, kindness, quick answers to our questions and there were a lot. We have found in Premier Villas in Jalon, not only professional people, but also friends. We are now impatient to be there and enjoy their company with their partners around for a "drink “. For people who are intending to buy a house in Costa Blanca, Spain ….. don’t hesitate to visit them".

Good Evening Chris and Premier Villas Spain ,
Thank you for your help on Friday and Mr and Mrs Brooker especially asked me to thank you specifically on their behalf for helping to make the entire process easier and more pleasant. So you see, you start the year with two satisfied customers! I look forward to the next collaboration,
Buying a house is an emotional event. Buying a house in a foreign country is a VERY emotional event.
Buying a house with Premier Villas Spain on your side is an reliable and enjoying experience. Not one question remained unanswered, Chris and his Team are very helpful people!!!
Xavier Steyaert - Purchased in Murla (January 2014)
“Buying a house in Spain can be very exciting but also very scary. There are many pitfalls and the papers are full of stories about people who have had horrendous experiences. That's why we turned to Premier Villas Spain to help us find our dream home in Spain. We decided that we would start our journey by renting in the area in Spain we liked. Premier found us a great house which we took on a long term lease and they have looked after the rental arrangements superbly well. Chris and his team knew that at some point we would be looking to buy but it was all about finding the right house, in the right location at the right price. We had spoken to them about what our ideal house looked like but we were happy to continue renting. Then suddenly, a house came on the market that ticked all our boxes and some other boxes we hadn't even thought about. Chris the owner, was straight onto us and in no time they had negotiated a great deal which also helped the sellers achieve their plans. I mentioned earlier that buying in Spain can be risky to the unwary, but that is where the Premier team take over. They ensured all the paperwork was spot on, the services were all available to the standard we needed, they lined up all the necessary legal teams and held our hands all the way the through the process. They also didn't stop, at completion. They have been on hand to help us sort through making arrangements with new suppliers and helping us with the things we need to do as new house owners in Spain. We have been delighted with the service Premier have provided and would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to find their dream house in this part of Spain. They helped us find ours!! Thanks to Chris and all at Premier,”

“To All at Premier Villas, Thank you all for a swift and stress free transaction on the completion of my House Sale. Premier Villas Spain provided a professional and efficient service. A special thank you to the admin staff .... Nothing was too much trouble and they always returned my e mails and telephone calls promptly. The whole procedure took less than a month to complete, AMAZING!!! Well done Premier. Best Regards to you all.” Sheila Timpson - Sold in Benigembla (December 2013)
“Not one to use flowery language I prefer to say that overall, I found Premier Villas Spain attentive and efficient, a business in which everyone knows their job and additionally does it. A team who have such a responsible task and the knowledge to carry it out but I cannot overlook the ever-cheerful voices of the ´Jefe´ (Chris) and backroom staff. Thank you all.”
Jean Williams – Sold in Benidoleig (September 2013)
“We have been delighted with the service we have received from Chris Hara and the team at Premier Villas Spain whilst buying and moving into our property at Alcalali. Unlike so many agents, there was absolutely no hard sell while we were looking for the right property, and they have been very professional and helpful throughout the whole process. Having completed our purchase, we had no hesitation in signing up for some of their property management services so that we know that the property is being well looked after when we’re not there."
Beverly and Peter Middleton - Purchased in Alcalali (September 2013)
“To all at Premier Villas, We were very worried when we decided to buy a property in Spain as we had heard all sorts of stories of people having problems with the property laws and everything taking a really long time. I would just like to thank all of you because it was actually very simple and straight forward thanks to all the preparation work you had put in prior to our arrival. When we initially arrived to view properties Premier had made lots of appointments for us to see a wide variety of properties which met with the criteria we had set and then escorted us to every viewing. Once we had decided on which property to buy they liaised with bank solicitors and all the necessary local authorities so that when we returned to complete the purchase it was all done in a matter of two days and we had the keys to our lovely new house. I am delighted to say that the assistance did not stop once the purchase was completed as they have since arranged to have locks fixed and the house fully cleaned and ready for our arrival to start the fun job of furnishing the house. Family who live out in Spain could not believe how efficiently everything has been handled as they were sure it would take many more visit to Spain just to complete the purchase as that had been their own experience. I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for us.”
Rosemarie and Mark O’Connell – Purchased in Jalon (September 2013)
“Dear Chris Hara and his fabulous team.
Dear Chris thank you so much for selling our house! When the going got tough you persevered and kept trying. You never gave up! You applied a very forward and professional approach, did not at any time accept defeat and in the end won through! I also wish to congratulate your team of terrific ladies in your sales office. Always cheerful, helpful, kind and professional! They helped keep us hopeful and positive. Nothing was ever too much trouble – What a team! So thank you again and good luck in the future, you thoroughly deserve it.”
Jeremy and Penny Winkley - Sold in Parcent (July 2013)
“Hi Chris, We would both like to thank you and your staff for the very professional and courteous way in which you handled the sale of our property and dealt with all of the Spanish legal system which you made very simple and painless. Thank you for handling our house sale in Spain in such a helpful, friendly, efficient and professional manner. It’s nice to meet people and a company that dot the ‘i’s and cross the‘t’s in such a genuinely painless way. We would certainly recommend that anyone wishing to buy or sell a property in the Jalon Valley should make use of the excellent skills available at Premier Villas Spain. We wish you all good luck for the future.”
John and Rosemarie Butson - Sold in Alcalali (July 2013)
“Please pass on our thanks to everyone at Premier Villas Spain. From first contact to last everyone has been fantastic. A really great example of how a business should work. Thank you again Chris and you will be top of our list to contact when we are ready to buy.”
Tim Orr – Rental tenant 2012-2013
“Hi Chris, Just a quick note to say thank you for taking the time to show us some properties around the Jalon valley. It was extremely helpful and informative for us, we will keep you updated as and when our position changes. You and your staff all come across as very businesslike, efficient and passionate in what you do, in which you should be commended. It was noted that you did listen to what our requirements were and took them on board and made judgements accordingly, unfortunately not everybody is like that. You should congratulate yourself and your staff in your achievements. We look forward to doing business with you”.
Elizabeth & Alastair– Purchasing in 2013
“I would like to thank Chris and his team at Premier Villas Spain for the sale of my property. The service I received was highly professional and very efficient. They continuously informed me throughout the process of the sale of my property. I would highly recommend Premier Villas for anyone who wishes to sell their property as I feel they would receive a very professional service.”
Neil Ball – sold in Pedreguer (May 2013)
“We reluctantly decided to sell our small property in Spain a couple of years ago in a very unfavourable economic climate. we realised that it would be a long time before we heard anything but Premier Villas Spain kept us up to date with any developments and never let us feel that we had been forgotten, and when a neighbour reported a that a window appeared open they checked it out for us. Being hundreds of miles away it was very reassuring to know that they were there. When eventually there was an offer made Premier were very, very helpful. All of the staff are efficient and polite very knowledgeable and at the same time friendly. The staff were most impressive and always remained calm and informative, they guided us through the whole process and was a fantastic support although the Notary chosen by the buyer proved difficult to find they got us there successfully and on time (a sat nav may have been useful though). The support was much needed as my husband was very unwell and unable to deal with many of the matters arising during the process. We had to change a few dates and details because of his illness but were never made to feel that there was any difficulty at all although I'm sure there must have been problems. We would thoroughly recommend Premier to anyone either buying or selling a property in Spain. A truly fantastic service from people we came to regard as friends. Thank you all.”
Julia and Trevor Hitchcock – Sold in Jalon (March 2013)
“During our search for a Spanish villa we finally chose for the Jalon Valley because of the buildup in the coastal areas. We first worked with a Belgian based “agent” but this proved to be a not so good decision as we nearly gave up our plans due to the lack of competence and support. We decided then to go on with Premier Villas and the contrast couldn’t have been greater! Professionalism, service and empathy were the keywords here. The team at Premier always smiling and helpful sensed quickly what we were looking for and took us, during the Saturday Jalon market, up to a villa which he said would be the one for us. He was right: the property was what we had been looking for and a short time later we decided to purchase it. Alison was a fantastic help in guiding us through the buying process and Spanish red tape arranging everything for us including an important appointment for which she had to queue at 5.30 am! Chris, the owner, also helped us a lot and guided us through all the details of property management. No unrealistic promises were made and only professional and practical information was given. From the very start we had a good feeling with Premier and we recommended them to another couple of Belgians we met. Only a few days later they purchased with Premier a beautiful villa and now we are neighbours!”
John & Hilde - Purchased in Jalon (March 2013)
“Last year, my husband and I took the decision to buy a house in Spain near the Costa Blanca. After searching on the web for several weeks for a nice villa I found your estate agency "Premier Villas Spain" When I contact you, everything went really fast. The houses you proposed to us where all sublime. A choice was difficult to make. So my husband made a rendezvous with the agency to visit some of our dream houses. He found one on the first day of his visit and visited again the day after. When he came back to Belgium, the same day we agreed on the price. Only one month later, Phil went back to Spain to sign the contract at the office of the notary. Premier Villas Spain had taken care of all the official papers. You even drove around with Phil to for his NIE, bank account and all this stuff. So, within 2 months starting from the day I contacted you, we are officially owners of a superb villa in Spain. No worries, no troubles, everything was taken care of. This was just amazing. Your services are the best. We will do it again!!! Thank you very much!!!
Bettina, Phil, Louise, Alex and Estelle - Purchased in Tormos (December 2012)
“We would like to thank Premier Villas Spain for the excellent service we received during the buying process of our new home in Jalon. We had been looking for a number of years for a second home in Spain but never felt as comfortable with a real estate agency as with Premier. After we went around with Chris the owner to see a few properties we decided within a few days that Jalon would be our new home and within a week the deal was closed. The whole process went very smoothly and nothing was too much for Premier. We surely will recommend you to our friends in Holland.”
Rene Raadschilders and Twan Bool – Purchased in Jalon (December 2012)
“Thank you to all Premier staff for your smiling faces and help in selling our house and for making us feel welcome whenever we come into the office.”
Trish and Maurice – Sold in Alcalali (December 2012)
“In December 2012 we bought our "dream house" in Parcent through Premier Villas Spain.During the buying process we have found the Premier staff to be most professional, helpful, friendly, nothing was too much, every question was directly answered. This was completely different with the experience we had before with another estate agent. So we would like to thank the whole staff for all their work and Chris and the office staff for all the information about the buying process. But especially we would like to thank Premier from the start they had an open eye and a listening ear for all our wishes and possibilities. They showed us several properties and because of their commitment we were able to find this lovely house in such a short time.”
Jan and Ellen de Boer – Purchased in Parcent (December 2012)
“We would like to say a big thank you to all the friendly staff at Premier Villas Spain and especially Chris, for their exceptional help and advice in making sure we successfully purchased our lovely home in Alcalali. Also a big thank you for the lovely bouquet of flowers that we received from you all. We would certainly recommend your services to anyone wanting to purchase a house in this area as there seems to be no problem, too big or small that you are unable to solve. We feel that rather than just business associates, we have made good friends for whom nothing is too much trouble. A big thank you to you all.”
Ann and John Ward – Purchased in Alcalali (December 2012)
“We decided to sell our villa after owning property in Spain approximately 28 years - quite a heart wrenching decision. Thankfully, Premier Villas Spain were there for us and, within a few weeks of it being offered on the market by them, they found us a buyer. I didn’t believe in miracles but I do now! Premier kept in touch with us throughout and was present at the signing over - very efficient, the kind who is more like a “friend” to clients. All at Premier Villas do a good job and I would recommend using this estate agent to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property.”
Carole & Bob Adams - sold in Alcalali (November 2012)
“Quisiera decir todo el bien que pensamos de Premier Villas. Todos han sido muy eficaces y agradables con nosotros. Primero Chris; un chico muy simpático y profesional, siempre a escuchar nuestras preguntas y hacer todo lo posible para encontrar la casa que sería la nuestra. La hemos encontrado y somos muy felices. Era un sueno de vivir a Alcalali para nosotros y ya esta... Después, Alison: una chica más que simpática. Es una persona siempre disponible para responder a nuestras preguntas y interrogaciones y también siempre sonriendo. Hemos tenido mucha suerte de poder estar con Premier Villas porque son unas personas muy agradables y profesionales. Gracias a todos.”
Agnes y Michel Coste (Purchased in Alcalali – October 2012)
“Chris and I have been really, really pleased with the professionalism, high standards of customer service and accessibility of the Premier Team. From the initial meetings and viewings through to completion, we have felt really confident that we were in good hands. They showed us a great selection of properties at the start, and this very quickly enabled us to narrow our search down. Once we had decided on the house to buy and started the purchasing process, we were looked after exceptionally well and really 'held our hands' and made sure we understood everything at every step (our Spanish being very poor!). Even now, after we have moved in and the purchase is done and dusted, we still feel we can call on Premier for help in adjusting to life here in Spain and in the valley. Every time we call or pop in to the office we are met with a sea of smiling faces and the offer of a cuppa as well as help with our enquiry or problem. A really great team. Thank you very much, Premier!”
Chris and Helen Balfour – Purchased in Parcent (October 2012)
“Premier Villas Spain sold our House in Spain with completion taking place in June 2012. We were very satisfied with the service provided by Premier from beginning to end. Chris came to our house to discuss the options of rental and sale. Chris a lot of time had to deal with our many queries and gave us considered and objective advice on the both options. He was patient and did not put any pressure on us at all. Ultimately we decided to sell the property in what is a difficult market. He quickly obtained us a buyer at a price below the asking but yet very satisfactory in the current market. Premier handled all aspects of the sale brilliantly. We had some issues over supplies to the property which Premier sorted out with the various Spanish companies involved. Nothing was too much trouble for them and their friendly and efficient manner made it a much more pleasant experience. Premier is a most reliable and professional company and I would have no hesitation in highly recommending them to anyone who is selling or buying a property in their region of Spain.”
Daire & Bernard Connolly - Sold in Orba (June 2012)
“From our first contact with Premier Villas Spain we experienced the professionalism of the whole team. The office is always ready for a quick & efficient reply by phone or email. Chris found exactly the property where we were looking for they guided us through the whole process of buying. Premier Villas know how to satisfy a customer and to keep him satisfied! Good job of the entire staff, maintenance & rental service.”
Tom & Carine - Purchased in Sagra (May 2012)
“We were very pleased with the service we received from Premier Villas Spain, we found everyone very helpful and friendly in the office no matter what questions we asked or what help we needed, everything was done very professionally and we were very happy with the way viewings were conducted. We would recommend Premier to anyone who wants to sell or to buy a property in Spain as the service given was second to none and anytime we are back in Spain we will pop in and see you all.”
Jane Jones & Margaret Hanna - Sold in Jalon (April 2012)
“We would like to express our thanks for the patience, the performance and the quality services that we experienced whilst searching for a suitable second home in the beautiful "Valle de Pop". After searching in Moraira, Javea, and Cumbre del Sol, we arrived at Premier Villas Spain in Jalon, we were met by a great team that gradually and patiently searched for our villa. We are now settled and find that we made the right decision for the right price obtained. We can highly recommend Chris Hara and his team who ensured that everything was done both before and after the sale to leave behind a satisfied feeling. Chris and co many heartfelt thanks for everything!”
Jean and Greta Goossens (Belgium) - Purchased in Jalon (April 2012)
“After visiting several agencies in the Jalon Valley, we went to Premier Villas Spain without conviction and we knew after visiting three homes that we could have total confidence in this dynamic and well structured team. We were guided throughout the process in the administrative and all other matters. Total relief when one is in a foreign country. We would like to thank Chris for the negotiation, as he showed us and made us discover this beautiful region and the staff for their multiple attention as well as the rest of the team. Do not hesitate to go with Premier Villas Spain as you will not be disappointed no matter your budget.”
Daniel and Elise - Purchased in Alcalali (April 2012)
“I have no hesitation in recommending Premier Villas Spain. They organised the sale of my property, dealt with all utilities, which in Spain can be a considerable problem at times. The staff were so helpful throughout the entire proceedings."
Clive Mudd - Sold in Alcalali (March 2012)
“Siempre me ha gustado la gente que sabe hacer su trabajo. La primera vez que entré en Premier Villas pensé que querían devorarme. No me dejarían escapar y no lo hicieron. En un santiamén tomaron Chris nota de mis preferencias y posibles, y dos días después me enseñaron, en una sola tarde, ocho casas que encajaban en mis gustos. Nada que ver con las muchas inmobiliarias que me han mareado durante años mostrándome a cuenta gotas casas que no me podían interesar ni remotamente. El personal de Premier Villas lo hizo todo fácil desde el primer momento, y también me ayudó al final a llegar a un acuerdo económico. No he visto nunca, ni por asomo, una inmobiliaria en la que dé tanto gusto dejarse devorar.”
“I've always liked people who know how to do their work. The first time I went in to Premier Villas Spain, I was really impressed by their eagerness to help. In a jiffy Chris wrote down everything I was looking for and my budget, and two days later, they spent an afternoon showing me eight houses that perfectly fitted my requirements. Their approach was quite different from other Estate Agents - quick, efficient and no need for persuasion. Premier Villas made it easy from the first moment, and also helped me to negotiate a good price. By a long shot they are the most eager and efficient estate agents I know.”
Adolfo –Purchased in Alcalali (March 2012)
“We made a visit to Spain in September 2011 and it was then we decided we would like to purchase a villa in or around the Orba area. We contacted Premier Villas by emails (whom were highly recommended) and Chris arranged many viewings for us. He was so accommodating when we eventually went back in November. He picked us up and drove us around over the next two days showing us properties even though it was supposed to be his Saturday off. There was no pressure at all, a very relaxing atmosphere. When we eventually did decide on a property which was almost as soon as we were back in England, the Premier staff could not have been more helpful. They took us through everything step by step. The staff were wonderful when we met on the completion day at the notaries office, they explained everything in detail (it's not easy if you don't speak Spanish) the whole process from start to finish took only 3months. One of the things we do find so helpful from Premier even now after 9months is the fact that we can still ring them up and know that they will be helpful and friendly. We will definitely use them again when the time comes. What a wonderful team!”
John & Vicky Cook - Purchased in Murla (January 2012)
“We decided to sell our villa in 2011, and due to the economic climate in Spain, thought it would take at least 2 years to sell. We felt very confident with Premier from the start, as Chris soon arranged viewings and before long we received a very realistic offer, which we accepted. Chris and his team were there to guide us through the whole process and were truly amazing – and so helpful, especially when they accompanied us to the Lawyer’s office. We certainly couldn’t have managed without them. Friends in England (and Spain) were surprised we sold our villa so quickly and this is completely due to Chris and his brilliant team. If anyone is thinking of buying or selling in the Jalon Valley, we thoroughly recommend using Premier.”
Sandy and Peter Hull - Sold in Murla (January 2012)
Everybody in the UK told us we were being very brave in making the move to a new life in Spain. Premier's fantastic team made those fears seem completely unfounded! Finding us our dream villa turned out to be only a tiny part of the help that they gave us. Everything from organising our NIE to introductions to the local golfers, nothing seemed too much trouble. We can honestly say that we now consider the whole team as friends and can't thank them enough for everything they did for us.
Roger and Rosemary Brown - Purchased in Alcalali (January 2012)
I sold my property in Alcalali with the Estate Agent Premier Villas Spain. After having had my property on the market with other Estate agents I find that the team at Premier were the ones acting the most with integrity and professionalism. Everything was explained very clearly every step of the way so I could relax and knew exactly what was happening during every stage of the sale. Chris was also flexible on reducing the commission since I had to considerably reduce my price which was very much appreciated. They were very professional, caring and helpful all the way to the exchange of contracts. I am grateful for their help in selling my villa at the best price within the market and would recommend them to anyone.
Nadia Chopra - Sold in Alcalali (January 2012)
Premier has accompanied us with the purchase of our house in Orba. Due to a professional inventory, Premier was able to advance our wishes, and show us houses which met our demands in no time. The House was quickly found. Also during the purchase process Premier was continuously ready to support and advice us. We want to emphasize that what Premier does for its clients goes much further than is reasonable to be considered by any client. Without any reservation we recommend Premier to anyone who considers the purchase of a house.
Peter & Petra Oskam, Remko Esser - Purchased in Orba (December 2011)
We were both very satisfied with the service we received from Premier Villas. We found it very easy to contact Premier with any questions and Premier always returned our calls very promptly. Since we bought our property, they have continued to be of support to us, and are very willing to help us with any problems. All the staff are extremely professional and very knowledgeable and obliging.
Tracey and Clive - Purchased in Alcalali (November 2011)
Thank you all for finally making our long term dream of owning a villa in Spain a reality. Your help and guidance during the purchase made what could have been a very difficult process for us very much easier. As we speak no Spanish your comprehensive service of dealing with all of the legal matters and making all the appointments for us was a God send. Every time we contacted you and your staff we always got a cheerful response and a very efficient service. Again we can't thank you enough for all your help and we hope to see you around Jalon over the forthcoming years.
Graham & Susan Freegard - Purchased in Alcalali (July 2011)
Professional, efficient and very friendly. The help and advice given to me, both in the UK, and when I finally arrived in Spain was first class. It went way beyond that which I expected, smoothing out many of the bumps experienced when moving to a new country with a different language and culture. I would recommend Premier to anyone wishing to move to Spain.
P.P. Powney – Purchased in Alcalali (July 2011)
I certainly will make a few comments about Premier. I didn't buy through Premier but I decided to sell through Premier. The whole process was completed thoroughly and efficiently right down to cancelling the utilities and household services. When Premier tell you that you won't need a lawyer, believe it, they did everything, the staff are diamond. As a seller all you need do is accept your purchase cheque. A quality second to none service. Roy Simpson - Sold in Alcalali (July 2011)
We would just like to thank you for the speedy and professional service we received on the sale of our villa, from start to finish in only ten weeks shows how organised a company you are. I would also say with the advice we got from the admin staff made selling a property so easy. I would recommend Premier Villas Spain to anyone. Again many thanks for your excellent service.
Mike and Evelyn Brown - Sold in Alcalali (June 2011)
“If you are new to Spain you could not do better than to put your trust in Premier Villas Spain. My husband and I came here five years ago and rented a property through them, three months later we bought a property through them, and two months ago we sold a property through them. In all our dealing with Premier we have been treated with courtesy, professionalism and honesty. Chris Hara leaves no stone unturned to make sure that your purchase or sale goes as smoothly as possible, and Alison will hold your hand through all the legalise that one has to endure in Spain, the rest of the Premier staff are all equally pleasant and professional. To sum up, if we were to buy or sell another property in Spain we would not hesitate to use Premier."
Jacky and Mike Swann - Sold in Lliber (May 2011)
From initial contact with Premier Villas Spain , viewing properties and learning of the purchasing process in Spain (which is very different and superior to the U K) we did not feel under pressure in any way and all our questions and concerns were answered in a very professional manner. Chris Hara and Premier’s office staff were brilliant they always did what they said they would and always returned our calls we could not fault them. We engaged our own Spanish solicitor for the actual buying process and he commented on the efficient business excellence of Premier and in particular had high praise for the completions administrator. The whole experience was painless and problem free thanks to Premier’s excellent staff and their attention to detail.
Sue & Chris Frost - Purchased in Jalon (April 2011)
I was very pleased with the fact that Premier managed to sell my property in a difficult market. The company gave me regular updates on the state of the housing market and once the sale was agreed was very helpful, dealing with all the necessary administration. The office staff always dealt with my telephone queries quickly and efficiently. I therefore only had to return to Spain once for the signing of the contract.
Mike Morgan - Sold in Orba (April 2011)
We loved the way that Chris quickly got to understand our needs in terms of quality and location for the property we were looking for, and were able to give us an indication of what properties were available and matched our needs explaining their strong and weak points.
We received clear responses to a wide range of questions about the geographical areas in general, and more specific locations. This helped us to make educated decisions on the property to chose. We found the purchasing process very clear and easy to understand, and received plenty of assistance from the Team to help us through the various stages until completion. The service from Premier is very professional yet friendly, and does not stop once the sale is made like some agencies. For us, the after sales support is one of the strongest assets of Premier, and we have been very well supported in solving issues arising from the purchase and consequent moving in process. For us, we would not hesitate to recommend Premier to anyone to manage their house hunting for them.
Jim and Lynne Nye – Purchased in Alcalali (April 2011)
My wife & I came to the Jalon Valley in February 2011 with the hope of fulfilling a little dream, to purchase a property that we can enjoy for some years to come. We had the pleasure of meeting up with Chris Hara of Premier Villas Spain, who gave us the time and the experience of his local knowledge, while showing us around various properties. Followed by prompt responses to any questions and eventually the negotiations. As and when the purchase was agreed, we were put in the capable hands of Premier Villas staff, who arranged all the various official & legal dealings/meetings, necessary for us to complete on the property, effortlessly. Any concerns or questions we had were satisfied, without the need to continually chase, as one expects & has to do in the UK. Where do we buy certain household goods from? Or anything else for that matter, the help and assistance we were given was exemplary, what a refreshing change in this present day.
Margaret and Ken Davies - Purchased in Jalon (April 2011)
A thank you seemed out of place given the excellent cooperation and eventual end result. We had been looking for property in Spain for a number of years with many different estate agents and experienced problem after problem, such as being shown unsuitable property, hidden costs and broken promises. Unfortunately the agents we had dealt with were just after a sale at all costs. Premier Villas Spain was completely different, we explained our requirements to Chris Hara and he selected some suitable property to view and within a few days we had found our house, everything was arranged quickly and in the correct way without any additional costs. My advice to anyone looking to purchase in Spain is to visit Premier and experience a professional methodical company without the stress and time wasting.
Marcelino Lijesen – Holland (April 2011)
We have sold our villa in Jalon in March 2011 with Premier Villas Spain. Chris and everybody else at Premier made a perfect job. Even though it took some months to sell the house, because of the economic situation, we never lost faith in the competence of the crew and finally were rewarded with a lovely family to buy the property. Thanks again and....keep going!
Alfons, Kerstin and Ralf from German - Sold in Jalon (March 2011)
We are very pleased to confirm that we had excellent service from all at Premier Villas Spain during the recent sale of our house in Alcalali. Despite the lack of information on the proposed infrastructure charge, you were able to put together a deal which we are sure was satisfactory to all parties. In spite of the tremendous drop in property values we were entirely satisfied with the price you were able to get for us and kept your promise of a quick sale even though we had already returned to England. May we take this opportunity of wishing Chris Hara and his team continued success in the future, you all deserve it.
John and Sylvia Hadden - Sold in Alcalali (March 2011)
We booked a Villa for 2 weeks in Jalon with Premier Villas. Upon arrival in Valencia, the airlines informed us that they had lost our entire family luggage, and so with the Airlines T-shirts and tooth brushes we headed to Jalon some 130 km away. Premier met us and took us to the Villa. Trevor was very nice and showed us all we would need to know at our villa. We worried about the luggage, but he said not to worry. The next day we met Chris Hara for the first time, the owner of Premier, he had driven up to Valencia airport and picked up our entire lost luggage for us. We were impressed and of course very thankful. As the week went on I have never seen my wife so relaxed on any trip as this before. We chatted and thought what a great place to holiday, also perhaps to move to one day. On the second week of our trip we called Premier and asked if we could visit some Villas for sale. Chris Hara asked many questions to obtain an idea of our needs. We saw many Villas, but the right one was not on this trip. Upon returning home we decided to make a special trip back to Spain for a Villa property hunt. We communicated with Chris , viewed the Premier Web site and came up with 15 to 20 Villas to view. Three months later we arrived. On our last day of the trip we found the Villa we had been looking for. The offer accepted; we planned on a closing some 3 months later. It is during this time and the following 6 weeks that Premier Villas, with their guidance really showed us what a gem we had found. The differences in Common law versus Civil law was a legal stumbling block for the way we titled the Villa. It is with patience, knowledge and Spanish fluency that helped guide our solicitors; so that our long terms dream of owning a Spanish villa became a reality. Chris Hara, to his great credit, has set up a brilliant team to back up you, or me, from top to tail, if you so wish. Everyone in the office is very friendly and extremely helpful. Since our purchase; Premier is also carrying out the property management of the villa; this keeps owning a property abroad totally worry free. Thank you Premier for all you do!
Paul and Sue Pinder – Purchased Lliber (Feb 2011)
On deciding to buy in Spain for a 2nd time, purely by chance we came across Premier's web site. After corresponding with Chris and letting him know our requirements he came back to me with suitable properties for us to view , and after a small number of viewings (due to Chris's understanding of our needs), we picked our current villa. We found the whole service provided by Premier to be first rate; in particular dealing with the buying/legal process to be first rate and what we thought was going to be a stressful day turned into an enjoyable experience thanks to their knowledge and experience. We have found Premiers staff to be most helpful during the buying process and also with any teething problems since the purchase, where Karen has been brilliant and would certainly highly recommend them and the service they provide.

Just a few words to say how pleased I have been with the service and friendliness I have received from Chris Hara and all the staff at Premier Villas. Since buying Casa Lisa last October I have nothing but praise for the way everything has been handled and the comfort you have given me making buying a home in Spain an easy, pleasurable and exciting experience. I feel that if I had any problems a phone call would be all I need to get professional advice and help and also to share a joke or two.
Barry Cheesman - Purchased in Alcalali (Jan 2011)
We decided to move back to UK after 9 years in Spain and asked Premier to inform us of the value of our villa, which they did. They explained about the present market and we put it on at a realistic price. We had number of viewings which were very professionally carried out and we sold just within just a few months in a market which was very slow. We were happy at the end result and so were the buyers. Everything was completed according to our dates to move back to UK. Premier Villas were a caring Estate Agent which kept us informed with the feedback of the viewers we had.
Linda and Les Walters – Sold in Alcalali (Jan 2011)
The aptly-named PREMIER Villas Spain sold our villa in the flat market last year. Chris worked tirelessly with his charming, dedicated team to offer us a professional service and to fulfil his promise to sell for us. The after-sales service was personal and beyond our expectations. Trust them to work their magic for you, too!
Kathie and Eric – Sold in Parcent (Dec 2010)
Premier Villas Spain sold our house in November 2010. We went to the office in July 2010 and asked them if they could sell our house. Two hours later they were in the house to see how it was and together we made the price we should ask. The next week we were back in Holland and the first buyer came at the office. I wanted to know if they would buy and every time I phoned the office the one who answered my call was so friendly, it was a good feeling. So the first buyer was interested and the only thing was the money. It took a long time before the answer of the bank was there and the answer was no money. Chris was not happy, the next day he phoned me and said I just sold your house for the price we wanted. Of course I didn’t believe my ears but it was true. Than the paperwork started and although we were in Holland it was perfectly organized, and I can tell you it was not easy because the builder made some mistakes in the paperwork. We have been very happy with Premier Villas Spain. The girls in the office are friendly and they do their work very well, nothing is too much every question is directly answered. The next time when we will buy or sell we go back to Premier.
Jan Mulder, The Netherlands - Sold in Alcalali (Nov 2010)
Buying real estate in Spain for foreign people is always exciting and full of unknown risks. You don't know anything about legal matters and the habits. Premier is the perfect partner to guide you through the legal procedures. The employees are able to explain in plain and clear text all the procedures and are very friendly and helpful. Where Premier really outshines in relation to other estate agents is the way of giving service after the transaction. We were really astonished about the good service Premier offers after the transaction was completed. In short, we experienced Premier as a reliable, honest partner for buying real estate in Spain with a perfect way of giving service to the customer.

"A very professional business, we felt very comfortable in knowing that Premier Villas Spain were looking for the right property for us, a complete service from start to finish."
Sandra & Bob - Purchased in Murla (June 2010)
We bought in Javea through Premier Villas Spain in 2010 and found the experience straight forward, mainly thanks to the folks at Premier. They were friendly and knowledgeable, but what impressed me most was the genuine intent to help. A very professional team that I would recommend to anyone.
Alan and Lynn Fairley – Purchased in Javea (April 2010)
We thought we would have a difficult time selling our village house because of the economic situation, but after trying several agents local to us in Tormos, Alicante, we found that Premier Villas Spain were efficient, courteous, sympathetic and ultra professional. The multi-lingual staff smoothed the way not only legally but also with contact with our purchasers. Premier were patient and ultra professional. From the top down, nothing was too much trouble. We have no hesitation in recommending them highly.
John and Anna Chaplin – Sold in Tormos (Feb 2010)
We were delighted with the service that Chris and his team at Premier provided when we bought our villa. We found them extremely helpful, patient and very professional. We are especially grateful to Alison Jupp who was and continues to be a great support to us. We would wholeheartedly recommend Premier Villas Spain to anyone thinking of selling or buying in and around the Jalón area.
Jim and Rona Murdoch - Purchased in Jalon (Feb 2010)
We would like to thank Chris Hara and his staff from Premier villas for their professionalism, expertise, and approachable and supportive team work which enabled our retirement to Spain to be a smooth transition, we are so grateful that we have ongoing support and are made to feel that "nothing is too much bother" whenever we contact them. This is team work at its best! We are delighted with our new home and felt Chris enabled us to find the right setting and home, helping us to settle easily into the community. Moving to Spain has been the icing on our retirement cake.
Peter and Avril Howard - Purchased in Vernisa Park (Feb 2010)
It was a lucky day when we happened to find Premier Villas Spain on the internet. There were 3 properties that had caught my eye and although we had just come out of a very bad experience of trying to buy a new property in another part of Spain, we decided to contact Premier and view the properties during our stay in the Jalon valley. From the moment we contacted Premier everything went very smoothly. Chris showed us round the area and the properties we had chosen. Everything seemed very organised and against everything we had thought about not rushing into another property we couldn't let the chance of getting our 'dream villa' pass by. We were so surprised at how easy and stress free the process of buying our new villa was so different than our previous disaster with another company. We would both thoroughly recommend the services of Premier to anyone looking to buy a property in Spain. Since our purchase Premier have carried out the property management of the villa and this keeps owning a property abroad totally worry free until we are able to spend more time there. All the people at Premier are always very helpful and friendly whenever we need their assistance with something. A great find for us and anyone else we send their way. Thanks for helping us get our dream villa in a gorgeous part of Spain.
