15 Years in the Hondón Valley @hondonagent

So here we are 15 years on and still loving it!

Pop the Cava! It feels good to be the longest serving and professionally trained international agents in the Hondón area.

So, yes, we tip-toed into the Spanish property market on 1st Feb 2006, 15 years ago when we set up a Google Business account and a couple of web domains. It was a slow burner as we worked out the real estate dynamics in Hondón, which was mainly a new-build foreign buyers market then. But we knew those same people would need to sell a few years on and importantly, that new people would love to come to the Hondón Valley / La Montanosa Urb.

Since 2006, Hondón Villas has gone from strength-to-strength and gained an enviable service reputation in the Hondón Valley. We pride ourselves on giving realistic and honest advice. Clients tell us they love how we care about them and hand-hold them from start to beyond their completed sale.

Foremost, we think our success is based on this commitment to the client. Maureen, a founder of Hondon Villas, has earned corporate awards, gifts and testimonials by the bucket load. She is outwardly friendly, always helpful and above all professional. Service is in her DNA. She actually still loves her real estate job after 30+ years!

Having opened the 1st office in Hondón de las Frailes, and latterly a 2nd in Nieves, we now employ multi-lingual staff to service the international buyers (Dutch, French, Spanish and German). And we are now on our 4th office. Very few agents here even have an open door! (instead are working from a car or bedroom).

Overall, it’s been both a bumpy ride and an exciting adventure, considering our move to Spain was to escape the trappings of an intensive workload in the UK. But we are and can be proud to have run a successful business in a foreign land, win awards and improve year-on-year. We truly believe we have the passion and integrity to be good at this. Above all, the satisfaction of helping people realise their dreams of living in Spain is second to none. It can be a “pinch-yourself” moment.

Keeping it in the family:
As we move into 2021, Kathryn, Maureen’s daughter now works within the property business to take it further and manages the day to day running of the office. Kathryn has and will of course, carry on the good name and service standards you have come to expect.

Above all, the satisfaction of helping people realise their dreams of living in Spain is second to none. It can be a “pinch-yourself” moment.

: Maureen, Founder of Hondon Villas

Now … even with the challenges of Covid and Brexit upon us as we write… we want this business to continue, improve and assist more people and to see what we saw 15 years ago… a better lifestyle… kissed by that glorious 300+ days of sunshine per year. Amazing!

Moving into 2021. Hondon Villas

Thank you to all that support us, help us, recommend us and want to see Hondon thrive. We will continue to work hard for you.

Contact Us: Of course if you want our expertise and local knowledge you can pop into our plaza office, call, email, whatsapp, etc… contact details on our website.

Gaziza recommends Hondon Villas Estate Agent (via Facebook).

We spent 6 months searching for property on the Costa Blanca before finding the Hondon Valley. We met Maureen at Hondon Villas Estate Agents and, compared to many other estate agents we had met on our travels, we were immediately impressed by her friendly personality, local knowledge and how perceptive she was of our needs. She guided us through multiple viewings, providing valuable support with patience and understanding and going the extra mile to research and ensure the accuracy of information she provided, including informal consultations with local lawyers.

It was a pleasure to do business with Hondon Villas estate agents in such a friendly and trusting environment and we would recommend them to anyone looking to buy property in the Hondon Valley.

Thank you Gaziza for your glowing review. We truly appreciate this gesture. This year in particularly it means so much and helps us remember why we do this (at times, stressful but rewarding job). We wish you happiness in your next chapter :-)

Happy New Year Message… 2020 into ’21

happy New year in 2021 from Hondon Villas, Spain

We at Hondon Villas hope you are well, making it through or at least coping with the current 3rd wave of Covid-19 now spreading across Europe. Keep strong and let us all look forward to a better 2021.

We reflect … Across the board, it was a hard year.

It’s not been a happy year for many, indeed most of us. Either personally or professionally 2020 was a challenging year across the board. Sadly, we have seen and heard some heart-breaking stories of people passing, losing jobs, not seeing family / friends and eroding their normal security or social circles. Many have had to endure isolation, loneliness, hardship and uncertainty and not least of course, had the dreaded disease itself. Everything changed.

The 2020 Covid Pandemic.

We have to thank the frontline & health workers that made life bearable, made the world somewhat safer and kept things ticking over whilst most of us stayed indoors, binging on TV (and food in our case ;-) ). They put their own lives on the line. APPLAUSE!

Well, of course we all saw or heard the news over & over.
Simply depressing on the whole. But …

The Hondón Valley and areas were (and still are) relatively free from Covid. We are quite remote enough inland & not that touristy so the population is fairly static, except in the summer months. Thankfully we feel generally safe here but not complacent or careless. Covid has and can still turn up anywhere. So we keep an eye on the stats, employ the hygiene and social distance rules at all times to protect ourselves, our staff and our clients. Practises had to & did change. The local shops, bars and restaurants also comply. We are open and trading with precautions. The office is open… please call in. We like to talk about houses ( funny that!) but e like to know what you are doing with your new life in the sun, or your hobbies and new friends. Love Hondón and it will love you back.

The cake got smaller, the slices thinner!

But for sure, in terms of business, Hondón area house sales are down over 2019, but not so bad as we feared. We rely heavily, not exclusively, on international travel for new buyers. And as we all know, flights & inter-country movements to/from Spain was/is drastically down in 2020. So logically, there are less people to see or buy villas in the Hondón Valley. And, in turn, less sellers being able to plan their future, reach their goals or even list their homes until the pandemic is over. Indeed the cake became considerably smaller with local agents competing over smaller slices.

A slice of the Euro pie !!

Indeed, this is the first year we have not beaten our previous year-on-year sales targets. And we blame the pandemic. We did see more people interested in New Build this year and we found new ways to collaborate with trusted agents, marketing lines and portals.

As a registered business, this downturn was cushioned somewhat by being able to enrol staff on the Spanish Gov’s “ERTE” scheme that pays a % of salary whilst in the “State of Alarm”. Like other agents we had to shut the office in the early months of Covid. We could work from home though to service existing sales, leads and general online upkeep. Nevertheless, it has hit the general overseas real estate industry & holiday trade hard. Already we see some agents / businesses closing up and unseen practises and new ideas to bolster things to survive. Trading got and still is harder in the midst of a Covid & post BREXIT world.

2021? Towards the light…

As humans we try to turn to hope first, to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We have to believe things will get better. After all, a Covid vaccine is being rolled out as of now. People & businesses have gotten used to the strict safety measures now. And thankfully, most of us comply and understand the seriousness of controlling Covid for the collective good and all our futures.

Although far from perfect, in the EU we have the back-up and support of Government help and volunteers. Most people got assistance at home and at work and it showed that the “war time spirit” can still surface when called upon. There have been heart-warming stories, human kindness and community heroes. Maybe you had your own hero to help you. Maybe you were a hero.

So onward… as we cannot go backwards.

Hondon Villas, like most small businesses felt the repercussions of a Covid Europe in the first half of the year. Lockdown, meant little or no business, staff confined to home, no travel, no office and literally no customers wanting to buy in a locked down Spain.

But to our surprise, since restrictions were lifted, we have definitely felt more positive about the future of overseas property sales and the Hondón Valleyalthough we are still cautious as we do not have a crystal ball.

We know from our own online stats, phone enquires, emails, industry news and tourist data that the desire to visit Spain for holidays, buying homes abroad and tourism is still there. How it pans out or how long it takes of course, we don’t know yet. Time will tell. But we have sold houses this year when it was possible, enquiries are coming in, website visitors are up across all our portals and sales channels, and we have email after email saying “we want to buy” / “as soon as we can get over”. We have even had a few sales that have been bought “blind” on the strength of our help, videos, photos and video calls. Other buyers have “popped over” in a non-quarantine period to view property in the Hondon Valley.

Positive and improving

We think demand will return slowly as Covid takes a backseat. We can’t wait to get back to some form of normality. That desire to get a better, more relaxed lifestyle has not gone away, just delayed. We still feel positive at Hondón Villas.

During this lean period (and Christmas is also traditionally quiet) we are:
1) Improving our systems & paper processes
2) Increasing our online presences & portals options
3) Updating auto’ property feeds to portals like RightMove, Kyero, Think Spain and Google
4) Improving our Social Media output in 2021
5) Looking at video/image tech’
6) Re-training staff for a better service, personal experience
7) Intend to improve our Frailes Office
… and more to be announced as and when the pandemic allows.

Keep strong, keep local… We need your support too!

So as it stands, we intend to keep the office open in the Frailes Plaza. Our staff should be better trained and geared up with better tech to assist buyers and sellers. We feel positive & ready that Hondon Villas and the Spanish real estate industry has a good future in 2021 but probably quite slow to return as dependent influences, economy, policy and confidence returns. Here’s to a better 2021.
please keep strong, support local businesses and follow your dreams.

After all the Hondón Valley, its beauty, its peace and that glorious Spanish sunshine is as appealing as ever.

How kind. Your comments on Hondon Villas

As you know we post our latest properties and local news on social media such as Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. And our 100’s of clients are generally a loyal and nice bunch who often comment nice things, stop us in the street for a chat or coffee at the local bars. Which is all, well … VERY NICE !!

Edward James said: “I used Hondon Villas earlier this year to sell a Villa, they were very professional, came to the Villa promptly and on time which is rare in Spain, gave good advice and valued the property fairly and in no time we had viewings and the property sold at a fair price very quickly, so thanks Mo and your team my wife and are very pleased with the great service your company offers.”

Yesterday, two more comments we noted that make us proud and confirms are attitude to customer service. Thank you all for your feedback and friendship.

Client Comments in Hondon

Sold! Sold! Sold! Hondon Villas :-)

Finally some good news in this Covid-19 year!! Hondon Villas have been busy in these difficult times. It’s been hectic to be honest, a surprise given the current pandemic. But we are happy to report multiple sales post Lockdown. Congratulations to all involved.

It’s a relief as we all know it is a worrying time for businesses that rely on movement of people and freedom of travel, like us. And of course the dreaded Coronavirus has impacted on people wanting to travel to/from Spain for their holidays and property inspections.

Thankfully people still want to move homes or invest in property in Spain and the glorious Hondón Valley is on many people’s list right now… or at least they have been for us, Hondón Villas.

It’s been a mixed bunch of sales, mainly from people already living in Spain and either upsizing/downsizing or moving areas. However, we have had two that flew in from the UK (safety measures in place of course) just to view a property, loved it and paid the reservation deposit! Bonus! And so pleased for vendors and buyers alike… more dreams made.

Anyway, so we need more properties to replenish stocks. Property that sells in the right location and at the right price. it can and is being done.

Let us know if you want to be listed with Hondon Villas, the first choice agent for 15+ years in the Hondón Valley area.
