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.


 

AIPP Membership because Standards Matter

We practise the AIPP StandardsHondón Villas were the first AIPP registered ESTATE AGENT in the HONDON VALLEY! Joining the AIPP pledges our commitment to uphold professional values, helps attract more discerning clients and networking with like-minded business partners.

The AIPP (Assoc’ of International Property Professionals) is an independent. non-profit making industry body aiming to improve the sales and purchase of property and real estate services. Membership is fee based to ensure only committed parties apply and to pay for the extensive features and benefits the AIPP offer.

Their website is here www.aipp.org.uk . They are also on Facebook and have a regular blog. They are active all year round to protect the consumer and help advise the industry (Agents, Developers, Lawyers, Media, Financial Services) to an better international property transaction and service level.

Buyng in Spain? A Free Guide from the AIPOBuying in Spain? Get a FREE BUYER’S GUIDE from the AIPP sister organisation… it’s a great place to start.

Hondón Villas have been verified members of this organisation for 4 years. In a nutshell they help promote and improve the real estate services required by overseas property providers, buyers and sellers. They publish a code of conduct on their site. Anyone can read about it and indeed complain if the conduct is poor. The AIPP will investigate and in worse cases can revoke someone’s membership.

Here is a networking video of the AIPP during a recent “Place in the Sun” exhibition in London. Yep the AIPP is alive and kicking and it’s members are an enthusiastic lot…

Hondón Villas gained membership (here is our AIPP page) for a few reasons and benefits. Firstly it’s what we strive for anyway : “professionalism” and to ensure the consumer gets a good reliable and honest service. In fact we strive to go beyond the AIPP guidelines. Also the AIPP are independent and non-profit making. Being independent helps protect both sides of the property process.

They run a tight ship in London HQ, publish guides and organise international networking events. They publish accounts and expenses for members to scrutinise. The AIPP are helpful in disputes and advice to all parties. They have legal eagles if we need them and are an established and respected organisation since 2006.

We benefit from that badge and membership. The fee is well worth the benefits and helps pay for the dedicated staff, work, materials and volunteers involved. An international organisation with over 350 members is not run on a shoe string and has to be paid for. Hondón Villas and many other agents are happy to invest the joining fee as a measure of our commitment to service quality and to show you the consumer we care about the service we provide.

The AIPP website has a list of members and openly publishes it’s policies. If you care about service and want to know what an agent should be doing for you then be our guest…. check out the AIPP against any other badge an agent might be wearing. You’ll find they cannot match up to the AIPP standards, materials, system and work ethic. Believe us, we checked already.

Choose Hondón’s Local Real Estate

Forgive us for blowing our own trumpet but did you know…

We womn the Business of the Year!Hondón Villas, unknown to us, were nominated and voted for by our clients for the “Business of the Year” 2015 as part of the annual “Pride of Spain” awards by the Costa Blanca People.

The “Pride of Spain” awards ceremony was a great night out and many clients came to see us WIN a nice trophy, a pleasant accolade to our work ethic.

Maureen Cook, Business Owner

Maureen Cook has managed many Real Estate offices in the UK and Spain winning sales & service awards galore! As the top selling female agent for Med Sea Plc she achieved an unheard of 70%+ conversion for Inspection Trip clients on the Costa Blanca South, sales worth many millions of Euros.

Maureen has been an agent pretty much all her working life, very few local agents, if any are even trained, less had the experience. She has 30+ years experience with the likes of the biggest UK agents: Halifax, YourMove, Birstow Eves, Manning & Staintons and more… meaning she is trained to a corporate level of service. She herself has appointed and trained 100’s of staff over the years who have also gone on to be successful agents. It’s a pedigree she is proud of.

Hondon Valley Property Agent

She prides herself on her people skills, a friendly no-nonsense personality and helping people from all walks of life and nationalities to get that dream house. In over 30+ years she has never pressured a single person to buy a house that was not suitable for them. With a relentless hunger for helping people from the minute she meets them and beyond the sale process, she can be counted on for support as a service provider. Many clients become friends and happily recommend her services. Repeat business through word-of-mouth is testament to her hard work here in Hondón.

Investment & the Lowest Agent Fees in Hondón

Choose us, as we re-invest. Hondón Villas have invested in the last 8+ years, 1000’s € in the local community, in people, various offices, multi-level marketing and equipment. We employ local people and pay their taxes, pay rent, buy cars, mobiles, etc which helps facilitate the local economy. Many other agents cannot or will not do that?

Because of this continual working expense and investment we have the cheapest fee for Hondón area property sales. Many other agents here without the same overheads are charging you far too much to make far to a big fat profit when working from home or a car!

Hondon Real Estate Office

Always Improving, Always Expanding

And expansion or improvement is never far from Maureen’s mind. We have neede bigger premises three times already in Frailes. And indeed we just announced we will be opening a second office in the area – no other local agent here has done that before either. So we take the risk and plough money back into the Hondón community.

So can we ask and encourage you to choose us as a local agent. There simply is no-one else in the Hondon area with that expertise, passion or knowledge for property or the area, even ones claiming to be international experts, trained, selling for years or making out they are bigger than they really are.

Hard work is how we got this far from scratch.

So, whilst our numerous staff probably cannot sell every house, be assured we will try our very hardest in a professional and trustful way.

If you can, and if you have enjoyed the service recommend us, rate us, review us as Hondon needs an honest hard-working team in Real Estate. Without you we can’t do the job we love!

We hope to be here in the Hondón Valley for years to come…

We believe in the future of Hondón Real Estate, we are here to stay, re-invest, help the community and think we can claim to very good at what we do, indeed top agent in the area for sales and service. We already have plans to extend our service into the next 5 years at least … God willing, the Brexit confusion, and the Spanish economy will not stop us.

Thank you for reading if you got this far.  Love & happiness from the Hondón Villas team.

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!

Milestone: Over 1.4 Million web visits to Hondon Villas!

Stick with us … Over 1.4 MILLION Visitors!

HONDON VILLAS WIN WIN WIN!
We are very pleased to announce that the Hondon Villas main website [www.hondonvillas.net] tipped well over the 1.4 MILLION visitors up to Jan’ 2018! Now that’s a milestone to be proud of!

Property website gets a mmillion page visits… and that’s not counting the 10,000’s of page counts and positive leads we get every month from our sister websites, blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Google and international advertising portals such as A Place in the Sun, Zoopla, Rightmove, Kyero, Prime Location and many more.

Of course having a local & central office in the Frailes village square gets us loads of foot traffic and exposure from all the locals, tourists and businesses. And through our trusted partners and collaborators we have a property Call Centre that take 1,000’s of calls from motivated buyers for Spanish Property.

WE WIN, BUYERS WIN, SELLERS WIN and the Hondon community WINS with a more buoyant economy.

And if you follow our success you’ll know that we dominate the search engines for Hondon property related searches on the web.
Google, Bing and Yahoo
rank our sites highly which in turn leads to more target visitors to our websites than any other local agent.

Now that’s good for business and helps us get more leads and property sales in the Hondon Valley area for buyers.


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!
