Share Article

In response to the horror stories that many people have heard about foreigners buying property in Spain, Peek at Spain, a well-trusted Spanish real estate company owned by British people who assist foreigners in moving to a new life in Spain, has shared some of the stories about their clients to illustrate the Peek at Spain difference.

Peek at Spain SL, a Spanish real estate company that specializes in the Valencia region, has shared some of their customers’ experiences while buying Spanish real estate to counter the horror stories that frequently crop up when foreigners mention buying property in Spain.

Tony and Teresa Wheal had dreamed of moving to Spain for years. “Like everyone wanting to move to Spain we had heard the horror stories and of the complications and were beginning to lose heart,” said the Wheals. “I contacted Chris [with Peek at Spain] and he immediately reacted with information and advice, and despite making a real nuisance of myself …both Chris and John continued to answer my questions and build our confidence in them. We arranged to meet Chris and he had already booked a number of visits for us (no wasted time with fancy presentations about the company, just straightforward information and detail) and after a quick coffee we were out on the road. At the end of Day 1 we had decided that we loved the area and more importantly wanted to work with Peek at Spain.”

In addition to searching for houses that will meet a customer’s specific needs, Peek at Spain will guide buyers through all the required steps of purchasing Spanish real estate with expertise and efficiency. When the Wheals found their dream home, Chris Proctor and John Knight of Peek at Spain began the purchasing process.

”It all seemed so simple, but only because they know what they are doing,” said Wheal. “Appointments were made with the bank, the notary etc, etc. Things moved quickly and efficiently. John’s attention to detail was really appreciated (you know exactly what is happening and how much, nothing is hidden) and before we knew it our dream was complete – [the property] was ours.”

Bill and Chris Eyre expected to need several trips to Spain before finding a property they loved and completing the legal side of the purchase, but were pleasantly surprised by their single visit with Peek at Spain.

“We had an appointment with Chris from the Peek at Spain team on Tuesday,” said the Eyres. “He took us to see several properties and we viewed one that we liked. …[We] asked if it would be possible to get a builder along to give us an estimate for some alterations we would need doing. This was arranged without any fuss at all. The following Monday we again met Chris and the builder "Tomas". We again viewed the property and asked Tomas if he could give us a ballpark figure for the work we had asked for, which he did and we put in an offer to buy the property… in no time we were at the estate agent’s and we put a deposit down. On the Wednesday Tomas delivered his quote which was very well prepared and in the ballpark. …Chris had shown us some of Tomas’s work and we were very impressed.”

The Peek at Spain team, which is comprised of both British and Spanish members, works hard to smooth the way with the Spanish authorities for foreigners buying Spanish real estate. Peek at Spain ensures that foreigners buying Spanish property pay what a Spanish person would pay, with no hidden extras or fees.

But it does not stop there with Peek at Spain. Tony and Teresa Wheal said, “[We were given] an excellent after sales package full of useful information, advice on all sorts of issues and introductions to new friends and contacts – all arranged by Peek at Spain. …Not only do they care, with some good ‘old fashioned’ ideas about customer service, but they are also great people. We are very happy to be friends with them as well as clients. They are also highly rated by the Spanish too, not only personally but also professionally, their honesty is apparent for everyone.”
