Everyone we help is treated individually. Below are a few examples of what our clients say about their experiences of buying a property with Hot Properties in Spain over the years. We hope that their experiences will help to illustrate the value of using us to help you too.
References can be provided on request. Here are some examples:
"Many thanks again for you excellent service you could not have tried harder. Will certainly spread the gospel according to Hot Properties and the teachings of Mark in the year of our Lord 2009!"

Mr & Mrs H. - West Yorkshire
Just a line to say a very big Thank-you for a superb day. We fully appreciate all you did for us and you certainly have given the two of us plenty to think about, including costings, areas and timescales. Many thanks for the additional information and the log.
We will be in touch
Norma & Graham"
Mr & Mrs H. West Yorkshire
Just like to thank Mark and yourself for time you spent helping us to find our new house in Spain. We were really impressed by the professional way you handled any questions or queries we asked of you. I know Malcolm never stopped asking Mark questions, he must have been fed up of the sound of his voice. However Mark was absolutely superb in both showing,finding and explaining any problems we had. We really appreciated the way he made dealing with the Bank and Lawyer so easy to understand. Also many thanks for your recent e-mails about the furniture stores etc. I am sure this will be very useful later. I hope to be coming out to Spain shortly to visit the Bank to collect Bankbooks etc. It would be greatly appreciated if we could arrange to meet so you could go with me.
I will call to let you know when this will be.
Once again many thanks for all you have done for Malcolm and myself.
Barbara and Mal."
Mr & Mrs S. Halifax
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you but the potential sale of our business has consumed much of our time since we got back.
"We were very impressed with the properties you showed. We particularly liked the fact that the properties in Calaspara were on good sized plots which is exactly what we are looking for.
We are trying to plan another visit in October/November this year and will contact you when we sort out the dates. We enjoyed our time with Andrea and your self and found it most productive - both Brenda and I have a comfortable feeling with the way you conduct your business. Look forward to meeting with you again soon.
Alan & Brenda."
Mr & Mrs D.
Many thanks for taking the time & trouble to explain all this to us, especially since we didn't manage to use your services when purchasing the property.
You've really been very kind & most helpful.
Anne & Peter"
Steve & Jenny R. - Evesham
"Hola, Buenas Dias
Mark, first of all can I say how grateful we are for your help, support and guidance. It really does make a significant difference. We are both still delighted and have not had the post 'what have we done' syndrome either.
Thanks again for all your help and wisdom
Steve & Jenny"
Mark & Jan K. - Cleveland
"We would love to meet up with Andrea and yourself next week as we hope to move in on Saturday and when you are free we must crack a bottle or two.
Love the area and apartment and thats down to you!!
Note: we also had a call from the UK estate agent that recommended us to the Kirkbrides who said that Mr Kirkbride had called in to ask for the MD's email address. Apparently they were so impressed that they wanted him to know how they had been looked after during their time in Spain.
Brian H. - Staffordshire
" see you over there ASAP, thanks again for all the help and advice and perhaps one day I may be able to repay you for all your efforts, may only be a brandy by the pool but what the hell, that will be great just to be there.
Mr David H. - Sale Moor, Cheshire
" Dear Mark
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for all the help and advice that you have offered me, together with all the time, effort, and hard work you gave finding my new home in Spain.
Knowing that you were on hand to answer any questions that I have had during the past 12 months and that you have stayed through the whole project right to the completion of the property has given me a great deal of confidence, I would also like to add that both the solicitors and bank you advised me to use in Spain have been brilliant and have kept me informed every step of the way.
I look forward to seeing you in November when I finally get the keys and start my new life, and consider yourself, Andrea and Gemma as friends and would hope to remain so in the years to come.
I really can't thank you enough Mark for making what I thought was going to be a daunting task into something that has been both exciting and a pleasure.
I hope your business continues to grow and I will keep passing on your name to both my friends and anyone else I know who is thinking of buying a property out in Spain in the future.
Maureen D. - Carshalton, Surrey
Arrived home ok, thanks for looking after us so brilliantly we had a lovely experience, the food and wine were great!
Give our regards to your wife and daughter.
Thanks again Mark
Mr & Mrs C. - Cleveland
"Mark & Andrea
Barbara and I would like to express our thanks to you both for all the effort you have put in. I was particularly impressed with the way Andrea stuck to her guns at our meeting with the builder.
The solicitor is also most helpful and we are sure he has our best interests at heart. I intend approaching him for his professional help, when the time comes to discuss our proposal on property management services.
We are very pleased with the overall outcome of our visit.The progress on the contract and the subsequent building works has made us feel much happier with things. Manolo had six bricklayers working on the block-work on Tuesday!! When we next come over in February there will undoubtedly be lots to see.
We would be happy to recommend your company to anyone intending to buy property in Spain.
We look forward to news of the extras when you hear from Tomas on the costs.
Please call if there are any other issues.
Jeff & Barbara "
Shirley & Eddy H. - Ipswich, Suffolk
"We wanted to move abroad for health reasons. Shirley suffers from arthritis and we liked the idea of being in a country with a warm dry climate. We have a large family so ease of access for them and us was an important factor.
When met up with Mark. He arranged to show us some properties based upon our criteria. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He kept us informed at all times and explained every step of the process. We saw several properties that we liked but were undecided. Not once, however, were we put under any pressure to buy.
The following morning we were shown a derelict ‘ruin’ that was available for restoration. We loved it. We were taken to meet the builder to learn about the project. He was willing to incorporate our own wishes into his plans and we paid our deposit. Mark had ensured in advance that there weren’t any legal problems with the project and we had the added peace of mind of having one of the company's proven Spanish solicitors working for us.
Since returning to the UK we have received regular progress reports and pictures."
Norman and Doreen F. - Barnstable, Devon
"We originally came out on an inspection trip with a large Spanish Property company and were dissappointed with the low standard of property, built on large urbanisations in rows that all looked the same! The lack of attention to our own personal needs was apparent as we felt these companies were catering for the masses rather than individuals. We were introduced to Hot Properties by a friend and can not be more impressed by the individual service we have been given by Mark, Andrea, Gemma and the team.
We are accustomed to buying properties in the UK and have always sought out property that feels right for us. Mark understood our needs and requirements and put the team on the case, coming up with a shortlist of properties that matched our requirements (and some wild cards that he recommended for various reasons!)
It was such a wonderful difference to see the full spectrum of property that was available for our budget and requirements. Mark gives what he calls "warts and all" advise, pointing out the good and bad points to each choice available.
The service continued after our purchase until we were settled in our beautiful Spanish home, so much so that we have become good friends!"
