It was a pleasure to help you. The Hondon Villas Team wish you a happy future.

Testimonials and Feedback for Hondon Villas

Happy Clients

“We would both like to thank Maureen and all the team at Hondon Villas for their hard work and professional approach on the sale of our Hondón villa. Instead of working from home on an ad hoc basis they have invested in office facilities that include both land line and mobile contact telephone numbers. Therefore it was with more confidence that we felt our sale could be conducted with similar work ethos as found with the majority of agents in UK! Fully recommended ,thanks again. ” – Steve & Marilyn

Lizie Steward saysI would just like to say a massive thank you to the lovely Gina Perera (of Hondon Villas). All your hard work has eventually paid off and TJ and I are very grateful for all you have done for us is the sale of our property.
If you need someone to sell your property this Lady has sold 2 of mine  and would highly recommend her to anyone who is selling out there. ❤️❤️❤️”

Pauline Fairey says “I met Maureen (Hondon Villas) in my search for a home in Spain. The rest is really history!
I love her to bits but sometimes have to remind myself that she is not my personal recommender of restaurants, neither is she my personal secretary for printing boarding passes, nor is she my personal tour guide and come to that she’s not actually my PA for every other one of my needs!  In a nutshell she is a star and she takes her job to a different level to any other Estate Agent here and believe me I have dealt with many others. She deserves the title of Best Agent, 100%. Go Mo Girl xxx

Being a Real Estate agent can be quite stressful and full-on with red-tape, new laws, paperwork, the “mañana” culture and to be honest staying clear of the unscrupulous and greedy!

But the best part of this job is getting it right and seeing the delight and relief of matching the clients with their dream home in the Hondon Valley areas.

Professional Estate AgentAnd yes, we regularly get testimonials, posts, tweets, flowers and cards as a thank you. Many clients become friends and delightful dinner guests. It makes the hard work and stress worthwhile.

Everyone we receive is appreciated and tells us we are doing something right. Thank you to all the clients (buying, selling or renting) who recognise the Hondon Villas service standards and taking time to thank us. 🙂

Here are just a few testimonials of the Hondon Villas service.

Thank you Len Ridgway May 2015:
We would like just like to say and let it be known that credit where credit is due! Mo (Maureen) and Saff of Hondon Villas have given us excellent service and been the most helpful and professional agents to us and we know many many other people as well. They have always gone the extra mile for us and its most appreciated. We would still and have recommended them to lots of people 🙂 … Said it before but if you want to sell your property professionally then go with Mo she’s the best 🙂“.

 Gwenda Gallagher says:
“After months of trawling through websites, emailing agents and viewing trips without any success, I found www.hondonvillas.net and I’m so glad I did. Their website looked very professional and full of useful information so I thought I’d give them a try.  … The fantastic team at Hondon Villas have kept regular contact with me to make sure there are no problems and have always been willing to help and give advice on all aspects of moving abroad. I’m very happy with the service I’ve received from Hondon Villas.”

Thank you card from John & EmmaHi Mo. We wanted to thank you for the time and effort you put into finding us a villa to rent. I know that we had a number of specific requirements, things that are normally quite difficult to find in the rental sector but you succeeded. Not only did you find us a villa you also, through your many contacts, managed to organise a company to move us at very short notice. All this in the middle of your own house and office moves, so thank you very much. – Ian and Nerys

It’s all about looking after people

Love Hondon! At Hondon Villas it is SO IMPORTANT to treat our clients like our friends, with respect and kindness. After all, buying or selling a home, especially in a foreign land can be and usually is a frightening, stressful and life-changing event. We’ve done it ourselves and we well remember the trial and tribulations of the experience.

Even with so many variables and external forces involved in the Property Chain, it is always nice to know we have helped other people to get where they want to be in most stress-free way possible.


Customer Comments:

Carol Inglis says:The service you give is second to none. You made our dream come true. Thank you.

A recent and very welcome customer comment.
Dear Mo, Thank you very much for all your help and kindness today. Your professional and relaxed, friendly manner made both Mac and I at ease and made the process of looking at homes less stressful. Once again our thanks for your help, we can now go home and know that we have somewhere to live when we come back.::: Regards : Janet & Mac

Of course, one of the nice parts of a difficult job is getting customer praise, small gifts or just a nice “thank you” for our efforts. Ron and Sheila took the time to send a nice card from their new home in the UK after we sold their Hondon home for them which read…

We would like to thank you for all your efforts in selling our property over there [Hondon] in Spain enabling us to buy a property over here [UK]. We wish you well for the future of your business and your healthlots of love, Shelia and Ron xx.”

Hondon Villas are very helpful, professional and always go the extra mile for you. I totally recommend this company. They found us our perfect home and we can’t wait to be living our dream in Hondon de las NievesLen and Anita

Proud! We are a Finalist in the Pride of Spain awards

Thank you to our clients for nominating Maureen and Hondon Villas for the “Business of the Year” award in the annual Costa Blanca “Pride of Spain” awards. Which is sponsored and run by the excellent Expat’ newspaper “Costa Blanca People” (formerly The CoastRider).

We reached the final!

We are honoured to be part of this. A few years a go Hondon Villas help sponsor this eventthat celebrates people, community groups, organisations or businesses that go above and beyond for others.

The ceremony and winners are announced on 28th Sept’ at The Clubhouse, la Marquesa, Quesada . Tickets are available at just €12 to include hot/cold tapas and I think there is some entertainment too. Please some along and support the local people who make a difference, a great newspaper and promote community services.

And thank you for your lovely comments and support on our the Hondon Villas Facebook Page.

Victoria Hext Grogan says: “Huge congratulations to Mo and Hondon Villas, for reaching the finals of Pride of Spain! It’s no surprise to us because you really deserve it. While I was in spain and renting from Hondon Villas, you and the rest of the HV team always made any problems a matter of urgency and nothing was ever to much trouble for you. Your help was always available even if it wasn’t linked to the rental villa and you made my Spanish Property experience so much easier for me especially when my husband was away working so thank you! Good luck xxx”

Congratulations Maureen, Gina and Sapphire. We really hope you win. We had been on two previous property buying trips with two different real estate companies, neither of which was really helpful. We tried 4 more agencies, one of which tried to push us into buying something so opposite to our criteria it was dreadful.  Thank goodness we found you Hondon Villas. I can’t remember the chaps name in Frailes outside the cafe, but he told us all about Maureen and how she would look after us and boy was he right!  Mo and team, not only do you have our thanks for helping find our lovely home, but also our respect. – Sue Savage

Andrea Campbell-Jackson says:  My Mom and Dad, Ann and Dave, who are arriving at their new home in Hondon tonight had nothing but wonderful things to say about you (Maureen) and the fabulous service you and your company Hondon Villas have provided. Thank you so much for looking after them both in their big move to Spain. You really put my Mom’s mind at ease knowing she had you to help and guide them. I look forward to visiting soon and maybe I’ll see you in the village. Well done on making it to the finals.

Kathryn Green Says: “Well done! That is fantastic but of course no shock to me as you have always given outstanding customer service and have always gone above and beyond for all your customers over the years. So lovely to read all these positive comments. xxx”

It was an absolute privilege to be a sponsor, helper and patron for the “Stars of the Costas” charity concert on Sunday May 4th in Hondon de los Frailes. We all had a great time, lots of money raised for Cancer Support and the bands & karaoke were all great! The “Sonny n Cher” tribute was of course the best !!! I wonder who they were really? Well done to the organisers, crew and El Fogon for a FANTASTIC DAY!! Can’t wait for another one.
