Hondon Villas Reviews… Thank you.

Sharon Buckley : May 2018
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 or 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!


Jane de Longa : May 2018
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!


Duncan Pattison : May 2018
We bought our house with the help of the amazing Mo, the owner of Hondon Villas, three years ago. Mo listened to our needs and found us the perfect property.

We had viewed numerous properties with other agents but as soon as we met Mo we knew we only wanted to deal with her. Her wealth of experience and knowledge of the industry and the area was apparent as was her determination to find the ideal property.

What we have found since is that her after sales commitment goes above and beyond anything we would ever have imagined. I would highly recommend Hondon Villas when buying or selling a property in Spain.

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!!!”

I like the Hondon Area because…

Success! Our Satisfied Buyers

Happy ClientsGwenda 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.

Most agents didn’t really listen to my requirements but when I met with Mo and Irene it was a different story. By the time I’d arrived in Spain, they had a number of properties lined up for me to view, all of which matched my requirements exactly. In fact, I decided on the first property I viewed. Dealing with all the paperwork was easy, Mo guided me through it all step by step and when it came to moving in, I arrived at the house at 3am to find that someone had been there before me, put some lights on and left basics such as coffee, milk and sugar in the kitchen – I’m not aware of any other agents that go the extra mile to make you feel welcome.

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, so much so that I’m in the process of buying my house through them. I wish them every success in the future.”


Maureen and her team genuinely care about all the people they work with. They put all their clients at ease and never place them under any pressure. The excellent after sales care continues well beyond the purchase or sale of your house and goes the extra mile time and time again. We would definitely not be enjoying a wonderful new life in Costa Blanca without Hondon Villas’ help. : RICHARD & SANDRA


Professional Estate AgentWe moved to Spain just over a year ago and can honestly say that we would have been lost at times without Mo and her team. We are in our 2nd rental property since moving here, both through Hondon Villas and are in the process of buying our house, again through Hondon Villas. We can’t thank Mo and her team enough for all their help and advice during our settling in period. The professionalism, motivation and genuine desire to meet their client’s needs has convinced us that we made the right choice over all the other agents we contacted. Keep up the good work!” – BRUCE SANGSTER

Professional Estate AgentHaving arrived in Spain in 2005, Maureen from Hondon Villas, secured a successful sales position with Med Sea Estates Ltd, an established and key property finder and inspections tour operator in the Costa Blanca South.

Maureen’s history in real estate goes back over 30 years, including her own successful Property Sales business in Leeds, UK and managers for the Halifax, Your Move, Bairstow Eves, Browns and Manning Staintons. No-one in the Hondón Valley area has such a pedigree.

Hondon.Co.Uk was established in 2007 by Maureen’s husband looking for a back-up plan with the pending global downturn. The Hondon Valley had seen such growth that of course there would be a need to re-sell properties in the future. Thus Hondon Villas was “born” to serve an international client base to both buyers and sellers. And to do this in Maureen’s winning formula of a friendly, honest and knowledgeable manner.

We are here to help.

Real Estate Code of ConductOf course we are always available throughout the whole buying process, from your initial property search on-line, cross-country calls, to viewings, the offer process, conveyancing and completion at the notary.

And as our previous clients can vouch for, our job does not finish at the notary. We make ourselves available to you as you settle into your new Spanish home, pointing you in the right direction, helping with move in, local networks and try to make your transition to Spanish life as simple as possible.

During that time she also ran her own thriving agent “Catlows” in South Leeds UK for 6 years.

Hondon Villas… Congratulations to Joe and Gill

Selling villas in La Montanosa Urb, Hondon Valley.

Congratulations to Joe and Gill…

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

Joe and his wife Gill had their La Montanosa Urb. property (in Hondon Valley) on the market for 6 months. They tied themselves into an exclusive contract with another local agent but they had no interest. What next? Well they decided to instruct Hondon Villas to sell their villa instead.

They and we are pleased they did as within a week the house was under offer and this week they have completed at the Notary. SUCCESS!

Hondon Villas have a high success rate in selling houses across the Hondon Valley. Our online marketing and property websites such as RightMove, Kyero, Zoopla and others, targets and attracts motivated buyers across Europe. We get daily sales enquires from the UK and across Europe. We also dominate Google search for Hondon Real Estate. Our central and high profile office attracts locals and visitors to the area everyday. It’s a marketing and service mix that has worked for years.

Please, join our success… So if you or a friend are selling in the area pop in to our bricks & mortar office in Frailes Plaza or call (0034) 965 075 357. Maureen, Jacquie and the Team will be happy to discuss our sales strategy.

Local knowledge counts when buying Hondon Property

Question: If an agent is not local how can they give you the best advice on local property rules, building regulations, about the area or tell you where the doctor is, the plumber, the shop times, the best bars or social groups?
Answer: THEY CAN’T !!  … Why? read below

A warm welcome from a Hondon Agent

Buying a house is not just “buying a house”… it’s about location, services, facilities, the people and the local “vibe”.

Hondon Villas are a local “WE” agent…When we say WE we are more than one. Other agents are one and operate from a mobile and car. We have a real office.

We employ local people and We have an office in the Frailes High Street. We don’t collaborate unless We can give you the high level of local service you deserve when investing in the area. We try to use local tradespeople where possible to help the local economy.

Above all, We are local people with training and experience (over 30 years actually in Real Estate). We have excellent local ties with the Town Hall and translators. We offer you 100% independent legal advice through trusted partners. We know the best bespoke builders and architects here. We know the best tradesmen, bars, restaurants and shops. We can help you with your utilities and bank accounts …. the KNOWLEDGE list is longer.

So Hondon Villas don’t just sell you a house, never to be seen again … WE ACTUALLY CARE and WE GIVE YOU TIME!

HVOfficeLaunch06And PRESSURE SALES? What pressure… if you are not comfortable with your current agent … come to see us… there is NO comparison as we just don’t do pressure!

So be careful of other agents and their spiel who speak as “We”. Often he/she is “I”. Always check their credentials, ask if they are trained in real Estate and experienced as often they are not. Often they collaborate with other 3rd party agents and pass your data from pillar to post. They run their one-man businesses from a car and a mobile phone… Most don’t even live anywhere near here or know the Hondon Valley.

We are “Hondon Villas”… the clue is in the name. There are no others like us!

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 🙂“.
