Put your trust in Hondon Villas, you won’t go wrong!

Maureen and her team have always been brilliant! We’ve rented a number of properties over the years through Hondon Villas and it’s our dream/ambition to eventually buy/build our dream villa. Maureen and her team have listened to our “must have/not” criteria and have shown great patience with us as our needs have changed.

Indeed over the years I like to think of Mo has our friend and then our estate agent! So, if you want an estate agent that puts the needs of clients first don’t hesitate to put your trust in Hondon Villas, you won’t go wrong! –  Sharon Buckley

Such excellent professional service . And always with a smile!
We would not have found our beautiful home if it had not been for Maureen. We can’t thank her and her team enough for the pre, during and after sales service we received. We would highly recommend Hondon Villas Estate Agent to anyone looking to buy in the Hondon Valley! – Jane Delonga

Elizabeth Chadwick reviewed Hondon Villas Estate Agent : Excellent! My husband Phil and I experienced Maureen as caring, honest, genuine and constantly helpful. We would highly recommend this company and would like to extend our gratitude to Maureen & her team. Best wishes.

Duncan Pattison : We bought our country house from Hondon Villas, this was our best decision. Mo and the team were fantastic!!!. The team are so professional and have great knowledge of the whole Hondon Valley area. Such a big move can be stressful and Mo made it all so easy for us, unlike other agents she listened to our requirements. The whole process was explained to us and any questions we had were answered correctly and honestly.  We would totally recommended and encourage that you buy your dream home from Hondon Villas. “THE BEST, WHAT A TEAM!!!”

A Place in the Sun … in the area again

As featured on TV!

Like many British Expats we came to live in Spain over 12 years ago after being seduced by those dreamy TV property programs showing a more relaxed and sunny lifestyle. Well, it is and can still be like that. These type of TV progs are still popular and thankfully for us, they still work!  Such that “APITS” is a now national gem, a staple of daytime viewing being repeated on UK Tele most days. Long may it promote a new life abroad.

Hondon Villas have been asked quite a few times to help TV property searchers over the years. One of the most recent being to help Jane and Nigel find their fab “Casa Blanca” house in Barbarroja on the “New Life In The Sun” series (Channel 4)… they are loving it!

Jane de Longa : You’re so right we are loving it !!! Nigel and I are so very glad we found the Hondon Valley to live in . . it’s been nearly a year since we first came to the valley and it was love at first sight with the valley and our lovely home!!

Well Maureen reports to the TV producers again this week (May 2018) in the La Romana & Hondon areas… It’s great these TV progs want to film here and more importantly that buyers still wish to move to this fab part of rural Spain.

We’ll let you know how it goes … fingers crossed the potential buyers find something they like to make their dreams come true!

Buyer’s love them and it can be another tool to help sell your house!

SO AN EXCLUSIVE SALES OPPORTUNITY for motivated sellers!

After about three years of researching the possibility and understanding the impact of using this exciting drove technology we think the time is right to offer it to suitable vendors and properties (it’s not for everyone and is subject to stringent AESA / EU flying laws). But the recent changes in Spanish drone laws and that our house photography has passed & registered his Drone Certificate, now allows us to offer a legal and insured aerial photography service to the Hondon Valley property vendors.

It’s early days with this area of photography and video but for sure some properties are ripe for aerials. We look forward to helping you sell your house.

Maureen, owner and manager of HondonVillas“Then we had the crash of 2008. It was difficult market and many agents, builders and developers went bust. But that also meant a new opportunity to sweep up should the market pick-up. Clearly those Hondon new builds would come on stream as the foreign investors decided to relocate or go back to their native country. And the markets for Belgium, Holland and France looked good.”

“It was slow but we stuck at it and built slowly as the market picked up. We changed a lot of things and ramped up the on-line effort and marketing. So to get the one million milestone from such a slow start is so pleasing and testament to our service standards, on-line strategy and local networking activity. Yes it’s very pleasing to know our hard work is paying off now.

You can call Hondon Villas or visit our websites for information on property buy, sell or rent. Our main office is in the main Frailes Plaza… we look forward to seeing you and another million site hits!
