Ranked No #1 for Hondon Property!

Foe Sale: Villa in Macisvenda, Costa Blanca South.ONLINE EXPOSURE COUNTS!
2019: Our website monitoring services and search ranking tools show categorically that HONDONVILLAS.NET is BY FAR THE MOST POPULAR website for the area and related search words. (Read why it matters below…)

Simply our “property net” catches more buying fish!

It’s actually staggering that our group of websites, social media and major property portals (like A Place in the Sun, Zoopla, Right Move, HomeEspana, Kyero, Prime Location, Green Acres) get thousands of hits week-in-week-out. And to think the “Hondon Valley” is quite a smallish niche of the Spanish real estate market.

marketing on Portals and Sites

We are ranked higher and get about 5 times more traffic than our nearest rival for Hondon Property related searches and ‘click-throughs’.

Pstt! in case our competitors are reading (and they usually do) we won’t tell you where or how we do this but it’s definitely working.

We are CONSTANTLY on PAGE#1 of Search Engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing in the UK, NL and ES for pertinent key real estate phrases… such as “Hondon Property” / “Villas in Hondon” / “Hondon Valley Homes” / “Hondon Estate Agent” / “Villas for sale in Hondon”. No other local agent even comes close!

Why this matters:
It matters to you the seller because the majority of foreign house buyers now start their property search online. Years ago they’d go to a UK high-street agent or visit a property exhibition. So, you the seller get a better chance of a house viewing if we at Hondon Villas are higher up the search results. Further, Google’s own research shows most people never bother with page #2 of search results. So in this busy digital age, to sell your Hondon area property you really want to be with an agent that has a high-ranking  property website in the Search Engines and that gets lots of targeted visitors. Period!

To improve your chances of a sale, we also invest in major global portals and advertising (like Right Move, Kyero, Zoopla, Think Spain, Prime Location, etc), foreign websites, blogs and online / off line advertising in local papers. We also have a high visibility with the locals, engage in community publicity and sponsorship. Our social media channels are active and updated often.

Of course we also have our very own estate agent office HQ in both the Frailes and Nieves Plazas or visit our website www.hondonvillas.net / Facebook page or call us:

The first almond flowers arrive 2019!

The province of Alicante is already seeing the first pink and white blossom of the almond trees on their farmland. The areas of Torrellano, in Elche, Hondón de las Nieves and Hondón de los Frailes, in the Medio Vinalopó, the districts of Marina Alta and Vega Baja are some of the points of the province in which you can already enjoy a beautiful landscape.

This flowering is earlier than usual in the region. It is common for the first petals and the first almond buds to begin appearing at the beginning of February.

The relatively high temperatures in recent weeks in the region, where in some points, such as Elche, have reached between 18 and 20 degrees! We’ve seen people sun bathing on the coast. However, the local farmers are a little worried that some almonds groves in the mountains may be exposed to possible frosts as the local temperature and inclement weather can be cold in the evenings and early mornings in January and Feburary. Lately the Hondon Valley is feeling 3-5 degrees first thing BRrrrrrr! But all is well by mid morning and a lunch al-fresco is a still a pleasant experience.

Bodegas Cerda… the local Wine Merchant

We love the wine in Spain – and at about €1.25 per litre from the local Bodegas it is a absolute bargain!!

Wine Merchant in Hondon

In the Hondon Valley and beyond we have a nice array of wine growers wine merchants to choose from but the most spectacular one has to be Bodegas Cerda in Hondon de las Nieves. This building could grace any major town or city. It is a working producer and seller of many wine varieties to suite all pockets. As well as a museum to Hondon’s wine producing history it has an audio / visual room for tourists and educational trips.

The cobbled court yard is an ideal place to sample the wines with local tapas, cheeses and cured hams.

If you have not visited it yet … please do so as you will not be disappointed! It is truly the prize of Hondon’s architecture.

Hondon Villas, your local AIPP Property Agent

Hondon Villas are in the AIPP“Caring and serving you in the Hondon Valley”. Hondon Villas is owned and managed by Maureen Cook who has over 30 years experience in Real Estate (UK and Spain).

Maureen set-up her own profitable estate agency office in Leeds, UK over 30 years ago. That office is still trading today. Maureen has also successfully managed a string of profitable UK based estate agency offices including large branches for the Halifax, Manning Stainton, Your Move and Bairstow Eves – all main players in the UK property market.

Moving to Spain about 14 years ago, she joined Medsea Estate PLC as a Property sales Agent. Having completed 100’s of Inspection Trips along the Costa Blanca, she soon found herself the top female property sales agent with an average conversion rate of 70%. With the 2008 financial crash and subsequent fall in Spanish Property markets, she voluntarily left Medsea to then later start-up Hondon Villas, her local Spanish property market. She realised many Expats after the boom years now wanted to sell up to go home or relocate, but also that the post-boom cheaper property would attract a new generation of investors and buyers. There was also very few trained and experienced real estate agent services in the Hondón Valley then.

As seen on A Place in the SunBuilding up a rapport and reputation didn’t take long and her first office was open 8 years ago. Going from strength to strength Hondon Villas has moved to better premises to the Frailes Plaza with more staff, more foot traffic and better prospects. Her 2nd office opened in Nieves Plaza in the summer of 2018.

The Hondon Valley property market has bucked the trend and still remains a “secret” with British, Dutch and Belguique buyers and the Spanish economy has slowly recovered from the 2008 crash. Each year Hondon Villas have never been so busy! … and we can report a record year in 2018.

As well as this wealth of experience, Maureen is a confident, professional and extremely friendly person. Her positive attitude to customer service, is second to none. And it shows, as she is constantly recommended by her clients to others.

“We” are local Hondon Agents!

We are Hondon Villas. Hondon Villas have been a “WE” for at least 10 years in Spain starting with Maureen and her IT experienced husband. Maureen was professionlay trained in the UK as a mortgage broker and estate agent by the Halifax Building Society and has 30+ years in the business. Since then we have opened and staffed various offices in the two main Hondon Valley villages. So when we say WE, we mean WE.

Welcome to the NEW Hondon Villas office!

It’s been our observation that far too many sole agents in the area pretend to be “WE” but in reality work from a car or home office. Their posters, marketing and social media make out they are more than one. Why? For sure many of them, like us are diligent and work hard in a competitive market. And also we work with sole agents that give a great service. But it grates that they say “WE” a lot when they mean “I”. Just be honest!

As of Jan’ 2019 we have 7 full time & local employees over two offices and work with carefully chosen partners. If we don’t work with them it’s because they do not match our standards of work ethic or trust. period! And we truly believe that is why we continue to be successful and the top choice of agent in the Hondon Valley area.

WE have TWO real estate offices: one in the Frailes High Street and another in the Nieves Plaza. Above all, WE are local and experienced people.

We have excellent local ties with the Town Halls. We insist you get 100% local independent legal advice, we know bespoke builders and architects, know the best tradesmen, bars, restaurants and shops. One client said we are the 4th emergency service in Hondon !!

So be careful of other so called “we” agents – check if they really are a “we” – Importantly ask where they when they were trained, what they did before or how they got here, are they local? Often they are really an “I” or simply collaborate with other many 3rd party agents. Many agents operating in the Hondon Valley don’t even live anywhere near here or know the Hondon Valley at all.

Q. So ask yourself,  can they advise you on a niche area like Hondon? – Answer is they often fall short of knowledge and experience! Some have never been trained and have just hopped on the Estate Agents Job Bus without a proper ticket!
