A Fantastic Team
Karen and the team at Country Fincas were wonderful in helping us to purchase our villa here in Pinoso.
From our first contact in the UK, through the whole process of viewing to purchase and beyond.
A fantastic after sales service, nothing is to much trouble and a wealth of information too.
We would highly recommend Country Fincas to anyone thinking of buying a home here in the Pinoso area.

We went with Maggie in late November 2017, to view 3 country Fincas.
Dear all at Country Fincas, Thank you!!Mary and Dave Barker (March 1st, 2018)
After being recommended to these wonderful ladies, we went with Maggie in late November 2017, to view 3 country Fincas.
The first one needed lots of changes in our opinion, but after seeing 2 other properties, decided on buying the first!
We are now owners of our Spanish house, January 2018, having received great support, as nothing is too much trouble from Maggie, Karen and of course Brenda.....so, would we recommend the team, most certainly!!
Every time we pop into the shop, we are always greeted with smiles, help and good advise.
Thank you so much 😊 xx Kind regards, From Mary & Dave Barker. Casas Ibanez.
We sold our house quickly with the help of Country Fincas.
From the first visit when we met Karen and Maggie everything progressed quickly and smoothly. We were helped each time we went in the office, if Karen was out of the office Maggie always helped us, she is a very pleasant and confident person and an asset to Country Fincas.
Thank you Kevin and JuneKevin and June McHugh (February 9th, 2018)
Karen steered us towards plots in areas where local councils would be amenable to what we want to achieve
‘We happened upon Country Fincas by chance when starting to look for a plot of land in the Pinoso area, on which we wished to create for ourselves a home and business. We have been helped in this mainly by Karen but supported by the team.
From the outset Karen steered us towards plots in areas where local councils would be amenable to what we want to achieve and away from those which would not. In other words, Country Fincas knows it’s stuff.
We completed on the purchase of a plot of land at the end of January. Unlike any experience in the UK where agents appear interested principally in their fee, Karen and Country Fincas were with us literally every step of the way, including attending with us at the notary office in order to ensure that everything went smoothly. And smoothly is exactly how it went. We are happy bunnies and looking forward to setting up our home and venture, with Country Fincas continued support and local knowledge.

Fantastic service throughout the buying process.

Post purchase I have had lots of useful advice on local contacts for home improvements etc. Willow (dog) and I are very happy with our new home.Maureen Pike (January 24th, 2018)
We are very happy to recommend Country Fincas
We are very happy to recommend Country Fincas to anyone interested in buying a property in Alicante. Both Brenda and Karen have been very supportive from the first time we contacted them.
We always got an easy going, friendly and efficient response to our questions and requests.
We practically purchased our Sax dream home from Germany and only made the final visit to the property weeks before closing the purchase. This speaks very positively about the trust and confidence we have deposited in Country Fincas.
We are sure we will be getting the same quality of support once we move in to our property this year, 2018. Good job girls!!, keep the sales and purchases going strong!! Graciela and Juan MoralesJuan y Gracia Morales (January 23rd, 2018)
Stress free purchase - I'm delighted
Having recently purchased an apartment via Country Fincas I would like to say what a wonderful experience the ladies of Country Fincas made what could have been a very fraught one. Being based in Australia and not able to travel to Spain to view the properties I was interested in I was able to see the whole apartment with a video walk through and commentary by Maggie which was enough for me to reach for my iPad and arrange the transfer of the money. The assistance from beginning to end made the whole process so easy that I wondered why the cliche has it that moving house is the the third most traumatic experience after death and divorce. I would unhesitatingly recommend Country Fincas for both buying and selling properties if you value professionalism, honesty and a genuinely personal transaction.John Moore (November 29th, 2017)

Their professionalism, knowledge and kindness was so reassuring
A huge thank you to Karen, Maggie and Brenda for helping us through the whole process of buying our beautiful home in Salinas. Their professionalism, knowledge and kindness was so reassuring and they inspired so much confidence from our very first contact through the website. We couldn't imagine a better service (that continues long after you have the keys) and they undoubtedly went above and beyond what anyone could possibly expect from their agents. Nothing has been too much trouble and they've been so patient with all our questions, really helping with so many aspects of our move to Spain. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this great team. Thank you so much! Marion & George xMarion and George Macklin (August 16th, 2017)

Cheers Country Fincas
Cheers Country Fincas. We were originally looking at properties, and then Karen and Brenda gave us the idea of a new build, something we had not thought about seriously before, after which they took us to look at a couple of plots. This changed our minds, and with loads of support they enabled us to get our act together and purchase a great piece of land, helping us with a couple of significant vendor hurdles along the way. We could not have got so far without them. Thank you so much for all your help, way over the call of duty! Best wishes Terry, Stephanie, Barry and Susanne.Terry, Stephanie, Barry and Susanne.

We cannot thank you enough for the professional way you dealt with the sale
To all at Country Fincas in Pinoso. In particular Karen Henderson. We cannot thank you enough for the professional way,you dealt with the sale of our villa in Encebras in March April 2017. From the initial instruction it was dealt with first class attention to detail throughout. We were guided hand in hand by Karen throughout the whole process,all being brought to a satisfactorily conclusion on completion.
We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Country Fincas and in particular Karen Henderson to anybody thinking of buying or selling a property in Pinoso.
Our thanks for a thoroughly professional service.

What a Fantastic Team!
Testimonial - What a Fantastic Team!
Dear Karen, Brenda and Team, Graham and I would just like to say a ’big thank you' to all of you for finding us our beautiful Villa near Pinoso. You are all extremely helpful and very professional. Nothing has been too much trouble for any of you. We would not hesitate in highly recommending Country Fincas to anyone who wishes to purchase a property in Spain.
The understanding and reassurance that has been shown is quite remarkable, as is the after sales service. Purchasing a house can be a stressful time, especially buying abroad, but you treat everyone who walks through your door with such care and support before, during and after the purchase and this really helps to provide a seamless service!
We also would recommend our solicitor Angela who was fantastic too! She is extremely professional and thorough and we felt safe using her services.
Once again ‘A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL!' Take care & see you all again soon. Graham & Sandy WildeGraham & Sandy Wilde (May 22nd, 2017)
Country Fincas are simply professional, knowledgeable and caring
When we first started our search for a home in Spain we worked with several estate agents but soon decided the best gals for the job were the Country Fincas team. Their determination to help us find the perfect property coupled with a friendly relaxed sales style & great communication made us feel really valued as clients; so many agents make you feel all they want is your money, but not so with Country Fincas. On the day we signed the deeds, Karen drove us into Murcia for the signing and then, when we discovered the keys wouldn't open the front door (the previous owners had left their set of keys in the lock!), she came to our rescue and organised a local locksmith at her own cost - seriously above and beyond any service we ever expected!Sarah and Gerry Steel (May 22nd, 2017)
Anything you want to know at any step of the process, before, during and after your purchase, Country Fincas are simply professional, knowledgeable and caring so ask away. We really cannot recommend them highly enough. Sarah & Gerry Steel
Everybody was extremely helpful at all times
This is just a short note to thank all at Country Fincas for the help we have received over the past few months. Everybody was extremely helpful at all times and with all aspects of our purchase. It is no exaggeration to say that our buying in the region was due, in no small way, to the ministrations of the staff of Country Fincas.
As you know, our purchase was not straightforward, and the property alterations and improvements are scheduled to continue for some time. Thank you for your assistance in this regard as well. It would have been almost impossible to find contractors we could trust without your recommendations. Indeed, we would not have considered the house, which is a project, without such help. Thank you again.Tim and Jane Iredale. (May 18th, 2017)
Try Country Fincas first as it will save you a lot of legwork!

We just had to email you lovely ladies to say a big thank you for finding our beautiful Villa
Dear Brenda Karen Paula Margaret
We just had to email you lovely ladies to say a big thank you for finding our beautiful Villa we had almost given up on Spain having tirelessly traveled around with several agents some been so pushy we were made to feel uncomfortable this was to be our last visit to Spain and give up our dream of ever owning a house. However from walking into your office meeting you all how wrong could we be we had selected a number of properties to view all of which were lovely but just didn't hit the spot.
Then we visited a Villa which is now our home we both immediately knew this was the one but been level headed and with the advice from Karen to have a second viewing to make sure this is what we wanted Paula drove us back to the property and yes it was the one we wanted we got the Ladies to make a cheeky offer which was turned down but with your team and your negotiating skills we agreed a price that both party's were happy with.
The villa needs a little work that didn't put us off the builders S2M were on hand to draw up plans which look amazing we looked at a number of projects the builders have done and although not the cheapest you pay for what you get which is total professionalism which brings me onto our Lawyer Angela who speaks amazing English and believe me leaves no stone unturned we were put in touch Laura at the bank in Abanilla received 1st class customer service explained everything to us sorted out our property insurance and our account.
We truly cant believe how easy you have made everything for us after reading so many horror stories how things can go horribly wrong we feel that you go over and above duties an estate agent ensuring that your client’s get 100% as we did. What made us smile was people who were still coming in for a chat and for your help long after they had bought a property if that isn't fantastic customer service I don't. know what is.Mark and Anita Tankard (March 20th, 2017)
They get the viewers through the door
Country Fincas are very proactive when it comes to selling your house, the highest compliment we can give is that "They get the viewers through the door" which is all you ask for in an agency in what has been a very difficult sales market for the last few years in Spain.
Guy Walker (March 20th, 2017)
Their service throughout the successful sales completion of our home was impeccable.
It is our pleasure to write up a testimonial regarding the service offered us by Country Fincas. Both Karen & Brenda from the moment they saw & toured our home displayed an enthusiasm we had not seen previously in Pinoso. Their service throughout the successful sales completion of our home was impeccable. If you wish to buy or sell in the Pinoso area we cannot think of a better office to use.They go that little bit further. Graham & Blanche PalmerGraham Palmer (February 1st, 2017)
Country Fincas have been great!
Country Fincas have been great! From our initial meetings, they listened to our ideas and showed us several suitable properties tailored to our budget and needs. Throughout the whole buying process they have been friendly, approachable and professional. They put us in touch with Angela, an English speaking Spanish solicitor who helped us with NIE, opening bank account and did all of the necessary paperwork for buying our house. We can't recommend them enough. David and Ruth Gee.David and Ruth Gee (January 25th, 2017)

Brenda and Karen have just dealt with the sale of our property in Spain although on the market for a while the girls in the office worked tirelessly to find clients for us so don't give up. The sale has just went through without any kind of hitch thanks to the service at Country Fincas. Thanks again to Brenda and KarenLorna and Grant Prophet (December 22nd, 2016)
We're grateful to Country Fincas
We're grateful to Country Fincas for helping to make our first experience of buying in Spain that much easier. We were given sensible advice throughout the process and a flexible and friendly service. We bought a small property near La Romana and we'd recommend Country Fincas to anyone looking to purchase in the same area. We had fairly short windows of time to look at properties and found Country Fincas to be happily willing to accommodate our requests to visit and re-visit properties at short notice. Rhys and Anna.Rhys and Anna Thomas (November 23rd, 2016)
I would not hesitate to recommend this estate agent.
After renting for 12 months in the Quesada area both my husband and myself decided that the tourist area was not for us. We surfed the web and found the town of Pinoso about 45 mins north of Alicante. We contacted Country Fincas to view a property that was on their website for sale. From the first telephone call both of us were very impressed by the help and guidance that Country Fincas gave to us. We viewed, we bought and we are happily living about 2 kms outside of Pinoso in a typical Spanish Finca.....and loving it! Country Fincas recommended a solicitor, Angela, who again we were impressed with. Angela did all the legal side including paperwork, land dimensions and the visit to the notary.
Country Fincas continue with their help and guidance if you should need it. I would not hesitate to recommend this estate agent. Thank you Brenda, Karen, Paula and Angela for making the purchase of our new home a non-stressful experience in Spain. Andrew and Sandra MoulderAndrew and Sandra Moulder (November 16th, 2016)
Sale of property in Pinoso Spain by Country Fincas
On behalf of Frieda and myself we would like to thank Karen, Brenda and all their staff for all their efforts in the sale of our property. Their assistance and knowledge of selling, administration, lawyers, etc was of great help. The amount of emails and telephone calls involved in a sale are endless and Karen and the staff were very very helpful. We have no problem recommending Country Fincas to new buyers and sellers.

Utmost respect for all the ladies at Country Fincas
Well what can I say.
Utmost respect for all the Ladies at Country Fincas,we told them are budget what we where looking for, then they took me (Jon) and my wife Caz to lots of properties there was no pressure to buy.
We luckily found the house for us.
The Ladies listened to all are questions and and give us all the answers.
When we returned to the UK they keep us informed all the way,if we couldn't get hold of the solicitor they would contact them on are behalf and get us the answers (the solicitor was fantastic you just have to get use to the Spanish way of doing things)
Even though we have completed on the property the Ladies of Country Fincas are still there and willing to help anyway they can, its been a pleasure. Thank you Karen, Brenda,Maggie & Paula

Thank you for finding the property of our dreams.
We were really happy with the service we received from Brenda and Karen. The viewings were great and good information was given about the different areas. Thank you for finding us the property of our dreams, we are really grateful. Janice and Neil Cartledge.

Extremely happy with the service I received and would recommend to friends or family.
My initial visits to Spain looking for property had been rather disappointing, and the latest beginning with another agent seemed to be going the same way. I then found Karen and Brenda at Country Fincas and this quickly changed, after a brief consultation they presented me a few plots which met my requirements, low and behold the first we viewed was exactly what I was looking for! A local Lawyer was recommended and less than a month later I am the proud owner. Extremely happy with the service I received and would recommend to friends or family.Andrew Bayley (October 27th, 2016)
Within just a few weeks of listing our property with 'Country Fincas' the sale had been agreed and contracts signed.
The friendly team helped sort the deposit payments, legal matters, service companies, notary, transfer of our monies, and finding removals experts, even though we were hundreds of miles away for much of the time,David and Glenda Farrar (October 25th, 2016)
Everything was completed with speed and efficiency in under three months from when we made our first approach to 'Country Fincas'. Thank you again for everything. Best regards to everyone, Glenda and David.
These ladies are
We recently sold a Country property in Pinoso through Country Fincas. We found the whole sales team led by Brenda and Karen to be helpful, a mine of information and extremely professional. We had loads of viewings as the location of our property was not to everyone's taste. The whole process was handled in great style which made the process very easy for us. We found that the care they took with us greatly eased the stress of moving.Trevor and Denise Jones (October 21st, 2016)
If you are thinking of buying or selling your property in Spain, look no further. These ladies are "Simply the Best". With all our best wishes for the future of your business.

Country Fincas are great!
Normally estate agents are hard work, frustrating and a pain in the arse. Not so Karen And Brenda. Always there to help and answer questions. I couldn't recommend them more highly. If you're buying or selling - put your trust in them.Stephen Bounden (October 19th, 2016)
We had been told from every person we spoke to, 'go to Country Fincas'... So we did.
We arrived in Pinoso with no idea about what we were looking for. We had been told from every person we spoke to, 'go to Country Fincas'... So we did.
Karen and Brenda were so helpful. They showed us so many properties - and really listened to what we wanted. We weren't ready to buy straight away, but they understood and put us under no pressure. We returned many times to check in and see what was available, all the while being offered helpful advise and tips...
When the time came to buy, Maggie helped us by sorting through all the properties they had and found us the perfect place - she really understood what we wanted. The sale process was seamless. We really felt looked after, nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile.
We have been so pleased with everything from start to finish - these guys are a real asset to Pinoso - a massive thanks from us all!! Beth & James.Beth and James Holdsworth (October 18th, 2016)

I have dealt with Country Fincas for the last 5 years.
I have dealt with Country Fincas for the last 5 years. Firstly as letting agents for my property and lastly as selling agents. Any one making looking to rent was vetted as suitable by Country Fincas. They understand that a bad tenant does not make money for you. A bad tenant costs you money. This could sound a tad sickly but I have nothing but praise for the service they have provided over the years. Nothing has been too much trouble. Anything that need doing was done without fuss or hassle.
An example was part of a patio need re-laying. I got one email explaining the problem, a quote was already sourced and all i had to do was say yes. So easy ans so simple. I could have asked for nothing more.
The property has now been sold. They worked and continued to work to find an talk to potential buyers. When the present buyers we happy to go ahead I had just a few emails of what I needed to provide. I was then given a suitable date to turn up sign and that was it. Again all handled superbly well.
So if you are letting they will help, If you want to rent they will help. If you want to buy they will find your needs and not waste time showing you something that does not work for you. And if you want to sell they will work for you to match your property with a potential buyer.Phil Morgan (September 21st, 2016)
I could go on but I feel that you get the gist. Phil Morgan
Proud owners of our first Spanish property in the beautiful region of Pinoso
We are both now proud owners of our first Spanish property in the beautiful region of Pinoso. This would not have been possible without the help and professional local guidance provided by Karen and the team at Country Fincas, who were there to guide us through the transaction, and arrange meetings with an excellent local lawyer in order to allow for completion in our absence, and all in less than two weeks!!
Carol and I are extremely excited, and are looking forward to working with the local builder, who also came with the recommendation from Karen to progress our dream.

It was very important to us that we didn't feel pressured
Brenda was very helpful and gave exact information about the houses we saw. It was very important to us that we didn't feel pressured and we had a relaxed feeling when we were doing the viewings. Country Fincas have good contact with other local professionals and put us in touch with a very good lawyer. They also offer maintenance services. Overall we are very pleased with the service we received.Patrick Naert (August 12th, 2016)
The service and friendship we have received from the company owners and staff is second to none
My wife and myself first started looking for a property in the Pinoso area about one year ago, upon arriving in Pinoso the first Estate Agents we came across was Country Fincas. Since then we have not looked anywhere else.
As most overseas buyers will know there is a lot of paperwork and information involved in buying a home in Spain, but at every turn Country Fincas have been there to help us and solve any problems we came across. They have also recommend excellentGraham and Jacquie Hawley (August 9th, 2016)

I can not praise highly enough the ladies at Country Fincas
I can not praise highly enough the ladies at Country Fincas for the help and advice that they gave me whilst buying my house in Pinoso. I was initially nervous of the complications involved, but the purchase was as smooth as silk. They helped with instructing a solicitor, seeing the Notary, money exchange, even advice from buying a fridge to rubbish collection.
I am now the proud owner of a Spanish property. I am a Chartered Surveyor and have had dealings in the property profession for fifty years. I must say that I have seldom come across such helpful people. Their help and advice was, and still is, much appreciated. Alan Rowley FRICS August 2016.Alan Rowley FRICS (August 1st, 2016)
We would thoroughly recommend Country Fincas to anyone looking to buy a property in inland Alicante
When we first considered buying a house in Spain we had read a lot about people who had so many problems and how difficult the whole process was. Buying with Country Fincas however proved to be the best choice we could make.
From the time we contacted them and right through to completion we found that all the girls there couldn’t help us enough. They were able to provide us with all the information we needed to make the purchase a very easy process and recommended a lawyer to us and sorted out our NIE numbers. Also the builder they recommended to us has proved to be extremely reliable in the work he has done for us so far.
Since we have been living in our house they are always on hand to help with any information or help that we have needed. I would thoroughly recommend Country Fincas to anyone looking to buy a property in inland Alicante. Kind Regards Hazel & AndyHazel and Andy (June 20th, 2016)
I really have found my bit of paradise
I have been working and living in Alicante for the last few years and when I renewed my contract to a permanent one, decided it was time to put down some roots and buy a home. There were after all thousands of properties for sale in Spain, the 'crisis' had reached rock bottom and it seemed simple on paper! 6 months down the line after 2 transactions had fallen through, I was feeling quite despondent. I had been searching on the coast and kept coming up with that dirty word ' compromise', we all have to don't we, and the old estate agent jargon, 'location , location, location' was forever in my head. Legal problems, debt ridden houses,it was a minefield. I decided to widen my search to a 30 minute commute and came across Country Finca's website. I was smitten. I had looked at thousands on line and my wish list was demanding to say the least.
Karen gave me details of properties that matched my criteria but right from the beginning there was one property in particular which she directed me to which ticked all of my boxes. Karen showed me around and I was immediately struck by the difference compared to the agents I had had dealings with. She knew the house, the area, the vendor's circumstances and she was calm and professional. When I walked through the door, it was as they say 'love at first sight'. Karen negotiated the sale for me and was a much needed support to the elderly couple who were selling in difficult health circumstances. The Spanish legal process is convoluted to say the least but thorough, despite what people say, and it went through relatively smoothly. Karen and Brenda were available throughout for progress updates and their solicitor sorted an issue relating to the title deeds which without their help, would have been a minefield.
Two months down the line and I still wake up to the birdsong from the trees and pinch myself. Brushing my teeth looking out to the vineyards shielded by the mountains with my orange roof tiles glowing in the early morning sun, it's a wonderful uplifting start to any day. My Spanish has come on tremendously with my neighbours encouragement, local farmers grow organic produce on my doorstep and the wonderful restaurants and bodegas locally have been a complete bonus. For me, it's the 'real Spain' and I really have found my bit of paradise ! KateCatherine Griffin (June 18th, 2016)
First class all the way
We would like to thank Country Fincas for EVERYTHING they have done to see us through the buying process. The Ladies are so helpful going "above and beyond the norm" to make sure everything goes smoothly, not only with the buying but other small but oh so important things. Brenda and Karen are amazing and also Paula and Maggie. FIRST CLASS ALL THE WAY. Very highly recommended. Thank you very much, couldn't have done it without you.

We recently purchased our absolute dream country house
We recently purchased our absolute dream country house in Pinoso. We were very pleased with the service from Brenda and Karen of Country Fincas who showed consideration and patience with the wide variety of our likes and dislikes, until eventually we found the perfect property in the most perfect location on the edge of both the town and country. We are grateful for their help during and following the purchase, and would thoroughly recommend them.Dave and Karen Marsh (June 17th, 2016)
They made our transition from Wales to Spain so stress free
A very big thank you to Karen Brenda and Maggie for all their help over the last seven months. From our first phone call from the UK they have been such an amazing help. We visited quite a few properties before making our decision to buy in Banos de Fortuna. They made our transition from Wales to Spain so stress free and helped with setting up our bank account , telephones and anything else that we needed advice on. Nothing was too much trouble in fact they are still helping us now when needed. They make us feel so welcome when ever we call in the office.Mary and Ray Flowers (June 17th, 2016)

The complete package
We would like to thank Country Fincas for their excellent service and support. We thought that relocating to another country was going to be rather daunting, but after dealing with Karen & Brenda & co, we found the entire buying process to be stress free. We were kept informed at all stages. Karen even went out of her way by accompanying us to the Notary, introducing us to our new bank, helping us to set up new mobile & landline phones, etc, the list goes on and on and on. These Ladies are truly amazing, they have exceeded all expectations of how helpful anyone can possibly be. We would highly recommend Country Fincas to anyone looking to buy abroad. Thanks again, Sara & GeorgeSara and George (May 10th, 2016)
Thank you Country Fincas for finding the perfect couple for my home.

A big thank you to Country Fincas
A big thank you to Country Fincas for their services on selling our property. We found them very friendly, helpful and extremely attentive, and would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell. Well done girls! :-) Anne and Paul LeePaul and Ann Lee (May 9th, 2016)
My first restoration house sold yesterday
My first restoration house sold yesterday 5th May and just as with the buying process that I've experienced with Country Fincas 3 times now, the selling process was seamless, quick and stress free. My house actually sold BEFORE the ladies had even put it on the market and their website and even before I'd totally finished the work. They had a couple coming over from the UK wanting a restored townhouse and they fell for mine immediately. That meant a happy seller, happy buyers and happy agents.
The ladies at Country Fincas have by far the greatest reputation in Pinoso and simply get on with their job of buying and selling properties for their clients. Rather than worry what their 'competition' is doing, Brenda and Karen (and Paula and Maggie) are now looking forward to collecting another commission on Tuesday 10th May when I buy my 4th house from them.
As I've said in my other testimonials, with Country Fincas, you always get the entire service and it's always with a smile and a laugh (and even a tea or glass of wine sometimes !!). There really is no need to look elsewhere if you want to buy or sell in this region. Thanks for everything and I'm looking forward to the next sale soon. Phil

We received a first class professional service from Country Fincas.
We would like to say a big thank you to all at Country Fincas. We visited Pinoso last October and we were made very welcome by all, we were taken out to some beautiful properties and stunning areas and I am pleased to say that we have now purchased our new home in Canada de la Lena, the first property we viewed (last October).
We received a first class professional service from Country Fincas from viewing different properties to all legal matters and would have no hesitation in recommending them.Robin and Margaret Kennedy (May 5th, 2016)
We talked, you listened
Dear Karen Brenda
Firstly apologies for having taken so long to write this letter to you!
We came to Spain basically "clueless". Our daughter had read your write up about yourselves on your website and recommended we look you up. We can conform that everything written there is absolutely honest and you are a credit to your profession.
We talked, you listened. You showed us plenty of properties and gauged what we were after. You didn't make us feel uncomfortable when we didn't like it somewhere and moved on to another one. Within a couple of days we found it! You guided us through process and looked after every detail and beyond. From N.I.E's to having the Oil tank filled.
Buying a property abroad is a daunting thing to do when you can't speak the language, don't know the buying process or the laws. From the experience we have had with Country Fincas we would definitely recommend them to anyone who is thinking of making the move.
Can we just say a very big "THANK YOU" and wish you every success in the future for you both and your team.Art and Brenda (April 18th, 2016)

I received amazing customer service from start to finish
When I purchased my property in March 2016 I received amazing customer service from start to finish. This included helpful and reliable advice in respect of local procedures, services, schools, insurance. Anything I needed the girls would try to help with. Above and beyond the call of duty and highly recommended. Glenda LakeGlenda Lake (April 3rd, 2016)
Pauline and I would recommend Country Fincas to everyone whether buying or selling
Pauline and I would like to recommend Country Fincas to everyone whether buying or selling. They are a professional company who provide a great service . Everything was dealt with timely and accurately and all we had to do was turn up at the office on the completion day. They even took us to the notary . All very stress free . Many thanks AlanAlan and Pauline (March 5th, 2016)
Excellent agent or in Swedish Toppen ställe.We would like to say a massive thank you for helping us not only to purchase our property in Pinoso but also for all the help that we received after the purchase.

Thank you Brenda, Karen, Maggie and Paula.
Through selling a property in the UK, trying to sell a property in Spain and finally buying a property in Spain, we have had many dealings with Estate Agents in the past three years. Most of these experiences have not been the happiest.Kay and Colin Aiken (March 2nd, 2016)
The exception to this rule is Country Fincas!
We had a very personal and dedicated service. we really felt listened to. Every member of staff was friendly, honest and helpful. We feel very strongly that this team offer an exceptional service.
Thank you Brenda, Karen, Maggie and Paula.
Sold my house with Country Fincas
My experience in dealing with Country Fincas has been nothing but first class. I was kept informed at every stage of the process. When it looked like the sale had fallen through, karen engaged with a lawyer to sort out the idiosyncrasies associated with Spanish conveyancing. I would not hesitate to recommend Country Fincas to anyone buying or selling a property.
Frank Gault (March 1st, 2016)
Country Fincas you're simply the best.
My parents couldn't recommend karen and Brenda enough after they bought their house a couple of years ago and now I can see why.Daryl Ledger (February 21st, 2016)
From taking us to view the house immediately as we were flying back to the UK the following day, to answering my constant queries, supporting me every step of the way and arranging my Nie etc, karen, Brenda and Maggie were simply amazing. Nothing is too much trouble and they took all the stress out of buying a property abroad, especially as we only had a weeks holiday to complete everything. If you are looking to buy a property in the Pinoso area you couldn't be in better hands. .Country Fincas you're simply the best. Look forward to seeing you all next month.
We signed in November and we are still able to call on them if we need help.
We would like to thank Country Fincas for all their help with our purchase of our Villa in Canada Del Trigo. From our very first contact right through to the day we signed for our property they were Helpful Professional and Friendly we signed in November and we are still able to call on them if we need help. We would advise anyone buying in Costa Blanca to put there trust in them. Liz and PhilPhil and Liz Steel (February 20th, 2016)
I put my house for sale at Country Fincas in August 2015
I put my house for sale at Country Fincas in August 2015. Cause of the crisis going on in Spain I had low expectations.
Nevertheless the house caught quite some attention thanks to the advertisement site of Country Fincas. We had regular viewings, well accompanied by the Country Fincas sales team.
Just before Christmas a nice English couple fell in love with the house, on January the 19th we signed at the notary. What more can I say...
Ria de Clerck (February 18th, 2016)
We tried the rest but used the best
We tried the rest but used the best and now we own a villa all in eight weeks and two days from start to finish. Thanks to Country Fincas Karen and Brenda we have found our little piece of heaven.They were so helpful and was with us every step of the way They went beyond what any other estate agent would have done. Karen chauffeured us to the notary, setting up bank accounts,utility account and direct debits if we had known how easy they made it we would have done it a long time ago. They are still there if we need advice on tradesmen, where to shop, and the best restaurants etc. Thank you Karen Brenda and the team. See you in April. John & Georgina

Villa sold in Pinoso
I would like to make reference to the sale of my property in Spain and my relocation to the UK. I would not hesitate to recommend Country Fincas for the very cordial and professional way they handles the process. Thank youWilliam Stokoe (January 19th, 2016)
Mary and Adrian Hughes wish to thank the lovely ladies of Country Fincas for the fantastic service in helping us through the very daunting task of purchasing our lovely property in Pinoso. You held our hands throughout the whole process and your after sale service is second to none. We feel able to call in any time with our problems and you have the answer and help us solve it, from having a pool built to finding a dog. First class, thank you! Adrian, Mary and Teddy (the Tibetan Terrier).Mary and Adrian Hughes (November 19th, 2015)
A big thank you to Karen and Brenda!
Just wanted to take a few minutes to say a BIG thank you to Karen and Brenda for helping to make the process of buying a house in Pinoso so simple. Both have a wealth of information about the area & are always willing to share it. Karen was always one step ahead of us, anticipating our next questions and investigating the answers. The whole experience was kept simple and we were kept up to date every step of the way. If you are looking to purchase a property these are the ladies to get in touch with!Julia Moorhouse (October 26th, 2015)
Great patience and a smile
Hi Brenda, Karen and Maggie. My wife and myself we would want to express our thanks to Country Fincas, to all of you who did a great job and have a lot of patience during the long way of negotiating. It isn't easy to sell a house that isn't finished, without a pool, without the habitation cedula, etc. The house was and is still not half finished and we still have a long way to go, but you have done everything without complaining, with great patience and a smile, nothing was to much, even on a Sunday I could count on you and your staff, thank you for all that. Every time we stepped into your office, you received us with great patience and answered all of our questions, and if you didn't have the answer right a way you had it in a few days. And when the sale was done you still continued helping us with paperwork, bank account and all these little things that made our new life in Spain easier and more comfortable, thank you. For us is Country Fincas more than a real estate office, it’s a group of people with a warm heart for everybody. Again, thank you for everything from the bottom of our heart. Luc and Marieke Van CaeneghemLuc and Marieke Van Caeneghem (October 19th, 2015)
Selling my home with Country Fincas was an excellent experience
Selling my home with Country Fincas was an excellent experience. Karen, Brenda and their team worked hard to promote my house and I particularly valued their feedback following viewings. After they had found me a buyer they kept me informed all the way and went that extra mile to ensure the whole thing went through as planned. Even though I didn’t eventually buy my new house through them, when I was looking for a property they sent me appropriate houses to look at and were swift to follow up my enquiries and to take me on viewings. Always quick to respond to any requests and ready to do what they could to help I would recommend them every time.

Purchase of a country house in Sax
If you want buy a house Finca in the Alicante area, then go no further than Country Fincas. The whole process was not only painless, but actually good fun! And, of course, the mystery house was the one we bought! Not only was the house in the 'wrong town', it was also the 'wrong size' (not in our original spec). And to crown it all, it was much cheaper than our budget. What more do you want?! And if the buying process in England was as smooth and stress free as the buying process in Spain (thanks in no big measure to Brenda and Karen) then I wouldn't have lost all my hair!Chris and Sarah Gander (September 13th, 2015)
I was looking to buy a property in the Pinoso area of Spain.
I was looking to buy a property in the Pinoso area of Spain. The ladies at Country Fincas helped me find a local bed and breakfast that I could use as a base.They picked me up in the mornings and showed me some properties that I had seen on the internet. They also showed me properties that they thought met my criteria. The ladies have an extensive knowledge of the area and were able to answer all my questions. I have found a property that I love and have had my offer accepted. Its early days but I hope my proposed purchase happens. None of this would have happened without the help from Karen and Brenda UPDATE. My property purchase has been successful. This was a different experience to dealing with your typical estate agent in England. Karen and Brenda are trustworthy thorough honest and genuine. They were just as determined as I was to get things right. No Flannel. TOP GIRLS, TOP TEAM, COUNTRY FINCASBrian Lewis (September 3rd, 2015)
We sold our villa in August 2015
As buying and selling a property in Spain is so different to the UK, we'd certainly recommend using Country Fincas. We sold our villa in La Zarza in August 2015 and Karen and Brenda took all the stress and worry out of the process as they completed all the necessary documentation on our behalf. Once a buyer had been found the contracts were signed and exchanged within the mutually agreed timescale and without any problems.Robin and Jeanette Moore (September 2nd, 2015)
We can strongly recommend Country Fincas
We can strongly recommend Country Fincas if you are looking to purchase a property in Alicante. Our experience of buying an Apartment in 2014 was made a delight by both Brenda and Karen. Their knowledge and can-do attitude made what could have been a stressful ordeal into an easy experience. An experience we would not hesitate in undertaking with them again. In fact that is exactly what we are doing.Tony and Wendy Lang (August 28th, 2015)
Brenda and Karen, We would like to say a massive thank you
Brenda and Karen, We would like to say a massive thank you for helping us purchase our property in Spain in May 2015. We found your advice to be invaluable and the whole service provided was helpful and friendly. It made our new adventure of buying property abroad an easy and relatively stress free experience. We would definitely use country Fincas again and would strongly recommend to our family and friends Many thanks Mandy and Steve Ford.Mandy and Steve Ford (August 21st, 2015)
My husband and I retired in March 2015
My husband and I retired in March 2015 and knew that we were wanting to live in Spain. We started looking for property on the internet over the winter and we came across Country Finicas during our searches. They had a good portfolio of properties and answered all our queries quickly and gave us sound advice. We selected a few properties to view from Country Finicas and other agents and planned our trip out in early May to look around. Right from the start Brenda Daly was regular in contact with us and gave us appointments to view properties that suited our needs, budget and schedule. When we arrived in Pinoso, Brenda took us to view the houses and we fell in love straight away and bought our dream home. The whole process went very smoothly and we can't thank Brenda and Karen enough for their efficiency, knowledge and kindness, all the stories of the pitfalls that can happen certainly didn't apply, they looked after us very well and we are now the proud owners of a home in Spain. Super efficient and friendly.Mike and Lynda D (July 13th, 2015)
Making our dream a reality
Hi Karen, firstly, thank you and Brenda SO much for making a dream a reality … You really made the whole process so easy and seamless – we couldn’t be more grateful or recommend you more highly.Liz Bell (July 1st, 2015)
A truly professional service above and beyond our expectations
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Karen and Brenda for the wonderful service you provided us during our purchase, A truly professional service above and beyond our expectations and genuinely nice people, I would have no problem what so ever in recommending Country Fincas to anyone looking to buy a property in Spain.Simon Monro-Webb (June 30th, 2015)
Best estate agent
Country Fincas are the best estate agent we have every worked with. Would recommend!Andrew Joyce (June 26th, 2015)
One year one from my first house purchase via Country Fincas and house number 2 is already bought and well through its renovation. Once again the whole process was done seamlessly through the Country Fincas team. I really feel that when you use Country Fincas you get the "whole package" and that's estate agents, property management with Alan, brilliant legals through Antonio, excellent building company with Blanes and so forth. If it's your first purchase then throw in help with your NIE, setting up a bank account, car registration, temporary accommodation and every other aspect of buying a house abroad. I've had no need to try any other of estate agents in the area and I can't imagine why anyone else would need to. I am buying up properties to renovate and then rent or sell on and have 100% faith that the entire process for each property will be handled by Country Fincas in their totally professional but ultra friendly mannerPhilip Mawer (June 26th, 2015)
We were recommended to contact Karen and Brenda at Country Fincas
After wearing out the Internet we were recommended to contact Karen and Brenda at Country Fincas. Turned out to be the best decision we made. After meeting them for the first time nothing seems to phase them. We had quite high demands with limited timescales with lots of twists and turns in between. They coped incredibly well with every situation. Cannot praise them highly enough for covering every detail asked of them. Their professional contacts were excellent in every aspect. The word manana related to Spanish timescales is a myth because everything they arranged went like clockwork. Also a big thank you to Alan for his ongoing help and would really recommend his services.Joe and Christine Hope (June 17th, 2015)
Extremely valued professionalism
Country Fincas were invaluable in our efforts to find a home to suit us in Pinoso. From the minute we walked into the office to enquire to the minute we signed the documents on completion both Karen and Brenda went over and above to help with the procedure. Country Fincas genuinely value their clients, they make you feel like you can go to them for advice at any time. Clearly they take pride in what they do. Moving to a new area is daunting and we were very grateful to Karen and Brenda for putting us in touch with good professionals and tradesmen. We will be recommending you for your extremely valued professionalism. A big thank you from Patricia and Ian HobsonPatricia and Ian Hobson (June 17th, 2015)
Their service and professionalism has been excellent.
We contacted Karen and Brenda at Country Fincas when we were looking to purchase a property in the Pinoso area. From the first email in February to our final purchase at the beginning of June their service and professionalism has been excellent. We were not easy customers but they were always patient in showing us many, many properties, answering our many questions and concerns without hesitation. They helped us with our NIE numbers and even provided temporary rental accommodation when we moved out to Pinoso to continue our search. Once we had put an offer in on the house they helped us through all of the, very confusing, procedures and not only provided help and guidance during the sale but also afterwards. They put us in touch with Antonio Pastor and his excellent staff, who dealt with the legal side of our purchase. He was extremely professional, thorough, spoke excellent English and provided a service that you would be hard pushed to find in the UK. We can whole heartedly recommend Country Fincas to help you buy your home in the sun! Kind regardsAlan and Sharon Currie (June 15th, 2015)
We tried a few agents
We tried a few agents when we were looking for a property but only 2 really stood out, Jordans in Benijofar and Country Fincas in Pinoso. We settled on an inland property in the beautiful Pinoso area. Brenda and Karen of Country Fincas were exceptional, they helped us in the buying process from beginning to end. We had quite specific requirements and they were very patient with us. They continue to offer a first class after sales service. We also recommend Antonio a local property gestor who assisted us with the purchase.Trefor and Linda (May 5th, 2015)
To buy a house in Spain from Sweden is not the easiest thing to do
To buy a house in Spain from Sweden is not the easiest thing to do. We could never have managed without the help and support of Brenda and Karen. You have been absolutely fantastic in guiding us all the way through. There was no doubt about it, Country Fincas had the best variety of houses to see on the country side. You answered all our questions very professionally on the email, so we could be well prepared when we came down to look at the houses. And the viewings were very well arranged.
We really recommend you both from the bottom of our hearts. Not only did you help us with buying the house, you have also given so much support afterwards. Name of a lawyer, where to buy different things, contact with Alan who takes care of our pool etc, etc.
Through Alan we have also had very good recommendations to the best builder, where to buy construction things etc. So his advice has been invaluable, and we really recommend his services too.
And finally ladies, you even managed to give us the joy of our lives, our little dog Leo, he was abandoned and needed a new home. We will be grateful for the rest of our lives for you guiding us to our paradise on earth. THANK YOU.Anu and Anders (April 13th, 2015)
We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending
We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Country Fincas. The sheer professionalism and attention to detail by both Karen and Brenda during the entire sales process, was exemplary. The whole experience of our move was a stress free episode due to the care and support given by the team at Country Fincas. Our grateful thanks, we wish them continued success.

I have to say a big thank you to Brenda and Karen at Country Finca
I have to say a big thank you to Brenda and Karen at Country Fincas who went out of their way to help us when we bought our apartment in Pinoso,and continue to help in every way they can with advice and translating for us.Janet and Richard Nicholson (April 1st, 2015)
Beyond the call of duty
What can we say? Brenda and Karen went beyond the call of duty in helping us when our original purchase fell through at literally the last minute. Before we left the office they had fixed us up with a temporary rental so that we could make our move as planned, and made an appointment for us to see another property they thought we might like before we left Spain; hows that for customer service. Because they had thought about the kind of property we wanted, the new house was even better; we moved in two months ago and could not be happier, both with the house and Brenda and Karen. They don't just sell you a house, they are a fund of helpful information that they're happy to share with you oh yes, and you can have a laugh, not to be underestimated when involved in the business of buying or selling a house!John and Jenny Foster (April 1st, 2015)
Best houses, best service and best move we ever made
We bought our house in March 2015 with Brenda & Karen from Country Fincas who could not have been more helpful, going over and above what we would expect from any estate agents ! They were and still are the best agents around and would recommend them everytime, best houses, best service and best move we ever made. Steve and Paula Steer.Paula and Steve Steer (March 30th, 2015)
We bought our town house in Pinoso from Country Fincas and we are very impressed with the friendly, efficient service we received from Brenda and Karen. We took their advice on builders to renovate the house and would recommend Blanes the Spanish builders to anyone looking to have some work done.Jan and Colin (March 20th, 2015)
The sale was quick
Hi Karen and Brenda. A big thankyou for the efforts you made on our behalf in the sale of our home in La Zarza. The sale was quick and you were always there to help. You did not just work 9 to 5, you would also responded to pleas for help in the evening. That was certainly beyond the call of duty. Even after we had sold you contued to look after us till we found a home back in the UK. What more can one ask? Ray and UlrikeRay and Ulrike (February 20th, 2015)
Anyone thinking about a property purchase in the Alicante region should seriously consider Country Fincas' friendly, helpful and professional service.
From the outset Country Fincas provided us with a fully professional and friendly service. We viewed a number of properties near to Pinoso and both Karen and Brenda were clearly well informed about each one, and were able to give full answers to all our questions.
Throughout the various purchasing stages Country Fincas service was excellent, and the local asesoria they suggested was equally as friendly and competent. Dealing with Spanish bureaucracy; from obtaining our NIEs etc. to completing the house purchase was not an issue. The whole process was, with their help, enjoyable and about as stress-free as it could possibly be. They've also good contacts with local tradesmen, which we required.
In conclusion, anyone thinking about a property purchase in the Alicante region should seriously consider Country Fincas' friendly, helpful and professional service. Clive and Annie Maybury.Clive and Annie Maybury (February 18th, 2015)
Your kind attention to help us select and choose and not push us around was really appreciated
Thanks Brenda and Karen and Alan and Rob for all your help with our recent holiday home purchase in Pinoso. Your kind attention to help us select and choose and not push us around was really appreciated and in marked contrast to several other agents we met. Looking at your other testimonial messages, clearly all your customers feel the same. Thanks again for everything and hope you can soon find another suitable property for our daughter and son in law who are also looking for a place. With warmest regards and best wishes Stephen and Carole xxStephen and Carole Bounden (February 7th, 2015)
We couldn't be more happy
My Partner and I would just like to say how grateful we are for the help we had from Brenda and Karen. They made our visit run so smoothly and helped us with EVERYTHING making the whole process relaxed and enjoyable. We bought the house of our dreams in a perfect town in which Karen and Brenda kindly showed us around. We couldn't be more happy. From the first visit to the last, we were able to enjoy the process of buying a property without having all the usual stresses you would expect. Thank you for helping us start the rest of our lives.

They are the most professional team!
My wife and I purchased a property through Country Fincas. We are more than delighted to write a reference as to the extent of their services. From start to finish they took us through the entire process, viewing, negotiation and notary to the completion of the deal. They are the most professional team!Keith and Jan Lewis – 28 January 2015 (January 20th, 2015)
They were both warm and friendly ladies
Karen and Brenda were extremely helpful when I decided to purchase an apartment in Pinoso. They were both warm and friendly ladies who made me feel very welcome. They help sort out everything from the purchase to sorting out the NIE, etc. They came highly recommended from friends who have bought in Pinoso.Phillip Nelson (December 24th, 2014)
I had spent 10 years searching
Karen and Brenda quickly found my perfect finca after I had spent 10 years searching in vain... praise indeed from one tough customer!Dr Magnus MacFarlane (December 24th, 2014)
We would like to go on record to express our appreciation
Dear Karen & Brenda, We would like to go on record to express our appreciation for your very professional, and I must say friendly, service you gave us in our search for a property in Pinoso. Having been disappointed in one sale falling through due to structural problems we were having to start all over again in our search. Country Fincas came up with four properties very quickly - one we had already discounted but one of the others was, what we felt, would meet what we were looking for and within only two weeks we were able, with your assistance to complete the purchase. Your after sales service too was so helpful in smoothing the way. - from arranging the NIE's to gas bottles for the property and a myriad of other things we needed to put in place both with tradesmen and at the Town Hall. Thank you again. Terrence & CeliaTerrence and Ceilia (December 22nd, 2014)
We wish we been with Country Fincas when purchasing our villa
We purchased a villa from another agent in Pinoso and unfortunately did not receive a good service and when a difficult purchase finally went through we were left wondering who to turn to help us,our solicitor recommended by the agent could not speak to us as only spoke Spanish. We needed help fast.
I then spoke to Karen from Country Fincas having found these agents on their website. Things changed for the better straight away. Karen was able to sort out all the problems as soon as we went into the office nothing was to much trouble,we were able to sort out with Karen our finances with the solicitor, make sure all paperwork was in place for the villa, sort out our bank account and Karen arranged everything else we needed.
The costs for all this were very reasonable and so reassuring to know that Country Fincas are just a phone call away ,whether there or in England to sort out any problems for you.
Karen and Brenda live in the Pinoso area with a wealth of knowledge that they are happy to share with you and having a proper registered office in Pinoso to walk into makes a huge difference rather than just a website, when purchasing a big decision like a property.
We wish we been with Country Fincas when purchasing our villa, then the advise and service would have been in our best interest including a first class after sales service as well.
This is a genuine testimonial for how Country Fincas operate and the first class service they provide.Theresa and Brian Grace (December 17th, 2014)
Country Fincas made the purchase of our apartment in Pinoso plain sailing
Country Fincas made the purchase of our apartment in Pinoso plain sailing. We did all the communication via email and didn't meet in person till arriving in Spain to sign all documents. Always quick to return emails and helpful with their good local knowledge of tradespeople and protocols. Thank you for your hard work and support and wishing you all a Merry Christmas.Wendy and Dave Evans (December 17th, 2014)
We recently purchased a town house in Pinoso
We recently purchased a town house in Pinoso. It was brought through the professional team at Country Fincas. Both Brenda and Karen went out of their way to ensure a smooth sale. Their continued support whilst buying and helping with queries after the sale, was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend Country Fincas to anyone wanting to purchase property in the beautiful town of Pinoso.Stephen and Carole Bounden (December 16th, 2014)
Thank you so much for your help and expertise
Hello Karen and Brenda. Just wanted to say on behalf of my Son Robert and Myself,Thank you so much for your help and expertise on the completion of our Townhouse in Canada De La Lena. Robert was only in town for three days and with your help we managed to complete all the necessary paperwork.NIE etc in two days!!! Thanks again.Cliff and Robert Bryson (December 16th, 2014)
We would recommend Country Fincas
We would recommend Country Fincas to anyone looking for properties in this area. When we bought our house they were happy to let us view it at a moments notice and always answered any questions or concerns we had and even sorted out our NIE Numbers. They made the buying process easy as it can be a little daunting buying a property in a foreign country always having time to explain and take you through the process step by step. We completed our purchase in June and since then whenever we have been stuck with translation or simply finding our way around we only call in and they are always ready to help Well done Brenda and Karen you have a great business and you have done us proud you come highly recommended Robert and Jayne Morgan (December 15th, 2014)
Professional handling of the purchase
Thank you so much for the professional handling of the purchase of land in Pinoso. The wonderful assisted by you I just needed to come to sign to Spain and was then able to immediately fly back home. Even after the purchase you are to me at any time with help and advice at your disposal, which is not usual. I highly recommend Country Fincas.Edward Hughan (December 15th, 2014)
Tausend Dank fuer die professionelle Abwicklung
Hi Karen and Brenda, Tausend Dank fuer die professionelle Abwicklung des Kaufs eines Grundstuecks in Pinoso. Durch die wundervolle Vorarbeit von Ihnen brauchte ich nur noch zum Unterschreiben nach Spanien zu kommen und konnte danach gleich wieder nach Hause fliegen. Auch nach dem Kauf stehen Sie mir jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Verfuegung, was nicht selbstverstaendlich ist. Ich kann Country Fincas nur waermstens empfehlen.Edward Hughan (December 15th, 2014)
We used Country Fincas to sell our house, we found them efficient and informative about the service they offer, everything went smoothly and we were very happy with the service they provided and would thoroughly recommend them for buying and selling your house.Barbara Clark (December 14th, 2014)
The staff at Country Fincas were superb in helping us achieve our dream!
The staff at Country Fincas were superb in helping us achieve our dream! What started out as a holiday turned into something we could never imagine. Brenda, Karen and who can forget Alan? Are friendly, genuine and knowledgeable. Country Fincas were not only courteous and professional but showed that personal touch in allaying our concerns about purchasing abroad. We highly, highly recommend Country Fincas and are truly grateful for everything they have done and are continuing to do. Many many thanks Nicola and Phil McConnell – Roberts.Nicola and Phil McConnell Roberts (December 1st, 2014)
I just wanted to thank you for your help
Hi Karen and Brenda, I just wanted to thank you for your help, understanding and your willingness to go the extra mile to help us and our buyer reach a very amicable agreement on the sale of our house, which I think is pretty unique these days. The whole process was completed and monies paid in only TWO weeks! Yes TWO weeks from start to finish. Not only did you sell our house you also found us another house and again your input and professional negotiations allowed us to complete our new purchase very quickly as well. All this, despite some totally unnecessary and some very unpleasant attempted interruptions from another estate agent in the area who tried unsuccessfully to hijack our sale. I can not understand some people and I am still waiting for an Olive Branch from the other agent but perhaps I am expecting too much? If you want any personal recommendations I am happy to tell of my experiences and explain why I want to recommend Country Fincas to anyone looking to sell their homes in and around Pinoso. I can only speak of my own experience and I have no hesitation in recommending you and thanking you for all your help. Well done, Karen & Brenda see you soon.Bill and Pauline Moist (November 26th, 2014)
We used Country Fincas to purchase our apartment in Pinoso
We used Country Fincas to purchase our apartment in Pinoso. They were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and flexible which assisted the buying process running smoothly as we are based in the UK. Thank you Brenda and Karen. Kind Regards SueSue Hulme - 28 October 2014 (October 28th, 2014)
Delighted with our purchase and your guidance, advice and absolute dedication to customer service
Hi Karen, Hi Brenda As you almost undoubtedly know, we spent our first night in the new house on the Friday after signing and it felt really great. We kept wandering around to see what glaring fault we had missed or waiting for someone to pinch us and wake us up. Seriously we are absolutely delighted with our purchase and your guidance, advice and absolute dedication to customer service proved to make the whole thing so smooth and seamless. You certainly made a complicated process as easy as it possibly could have been made. We sincerely thank you both for everything you have done for us in achieving the first part of our dream.
We both look forward to seeing you again when we come back out. Once again many, many, thanks for everything. David and Hayley Liepins.David and Hayley Liepins (October 21st, 2014)
Buying and selling abroad is a stressful time for anyone
Buying and selling abroad is a stressful time for anyone, even having lived in Spain for almost 10 years, speaking Spanish and having sold a house on the coast to buy a brand new one in the country with, what we thought, were all guarantees and paperwork in place, it turned out not to be so. - We approached Country Fincas to sell our house and lo and behold Karen immediately found out there was no permission for the pool - how can that be we asked - nothing unusual for Karen and Brenda - they guided us through the process, did all the running around and found us a lovely couple who bought our house all in the space of 4 months.
They were always calm, collected, had the right answers/solutions, were always available to answer any questions, they know their stuff and they work closely with the local property 'solicitor' Antonio Deltell Pastor who (be warned) let's nothing get passed him, you will be in safe hands and we very much appreciated the way that they handled everything, their representation at the notary to the handing over of the keys. We can't thank them enough and will be popping in the say hello when we are back over to visit.Irene and Richard James (October 11th, 2014)
Thank you for all your help and patience with our house sale
Hi Both, would just like to say thank you for all your help and patience with our house sale, we were not the easiest of clients and you walked us through it all With calm and no stress on the day at all. We will keep in touch about the purchase of our new property when that happens. Regards Kevin and Sue HardacreKevin and Sue Haracre (September 23rd, 2014)
We are so grateful for how easy you made everything
Hi to all at Country Fincas. We would like to thank you so much for all your help in purchasing our new home. From viewing properties to organizing our NIE numbers and much more, you couldn't have been more helpful and reassuring. I know its not recommended to employ legal services recommended by an estate agent but we were so grateful to you in pointing us in the direction of Antonio as he was so professional and like yourselves, incredibly helpful. I really don't think we would have been so confident buying with another agent. Country Fincas gave us the complete package and with that, piece of mind.
We are so grateful for how easy you made everything and would recommend you to anyone thinking of buying a property. - Cant wait to be living in spain and no doubt we will be picking your brains for further advice - Many Thanks - Paul and Sally MichaelPaul and Sally Michael (September 5th, 2014)
What a great surprise to meet Brenda and Karen
Dear Brenda & Karen, - Having recently sold my house in the UK, I was highly sceptical with the dealings of any Estate Agent, more so with a Spanish agent, after readings from the papers. - What a great surprise to meet Brenda and Karen of Country Fincas. On our first day out to look at properties, we realised how switched on and professional they are.
Once you have paid your deposit on a chosen property, the scary bit starts. We broke the golden rule, never use a solicitor that an estate agent recommends. They recommended Antonio Deltell Pastor, who speaks excellent English and is highly professional and a perfectionist, the best solicitor that I have ever used and the privilege to meet. - Brenda and Karen then went on to guide us through the money transfer, NIE numbers, and just being there for any questions or after thoughts that we had. - Wednesday nights I have never been out for a drink in a bar with an Estate Agent, can you imagine this happening in the UK? No, highly unlikely! We like to think that Brenda and Karen have become good friends and look forward to many more Wednesday nights out.
Thank you Country Fincas for your friendly and highly professional help with a special thanks to Rob, Mollie and Alan, what a team, we cannot recommend you all enough. - Best wishes for the future - Gerry and AlisonGerry and Alison (August 25th, 2014)
Karen and Brenda guided me through each stage in a professional manner
I would like to say a big thank you to you both for selling my house! Although it was complicated, Karen and Brenda guided me through each stage in a professional manner ending in a successful sale. I would also thoroughly recommend using Antonio as a solicitor! Kind Regards JaneJane OGrady (August 6th, 2014)
First class service from all the team
Firstly Id like to say buying a property through Country Fincas was a hassle free experience the help which Brenda and Karen gave us was beyond what we expected and nothing too much trouble. They helped with nie Certs, solicitor, banks in fact everything. Even now we have purchased a property the help is still there helping with building work and permits even looking at furniture. Any one thinking of buying I would highly recommend Country Fincas for a first class service from all the team. Alan and Emma many thanksAlan and Emma Doran (August 6th, 2014)
I'm happy to recommend Country Fincas to other people
Im happy to recommend Country Fincas to other people. Karen and Brenda give us the best treatment when we was looking for a house in Spain. I was from the first moments confident to have contact with them both. They where very patient and send us good prospects before we finally decided to buy and after the decision they where very helpful with all the formalities, with very good help from there cooperative Antonio. I will give you the best recommendations. AsgeirAsgeir Kolberg (July 22nd, 2014)
I would suggest that anyone thinking of buying, or selling a house in the Pinoso area do so through Country Fincas.
I would suggest that anyone thinking of buying, or selling a house in the Pinoso area do so through Country Fincas. Brenda and Karen will look after all of your needs in a very professional manner. Buying or selling a property in Spain can be quite daunting, take the stress out of it by using this company. Lastly, if they recommend Antonio a local lawyer to represent you, please do use him he is first class. I used him for my sale, which was complicated and he was exceptional. I only wish that I had known about him when I purchased the property six years ago. Alan LedbrookAlan Ledbrook (July 11th, 2014)

Duizend maal dank beste Brenda en Karen, voor jullie professionele inzet en persoonlijke service.

Thank you for a really professional and friendly service
Hi Brenda and Karen I would like to say a big thank you and how happy we are with the great service you have given us when my son was purchasing a property through yourselves. You were always there to answer any questions and help with the smooth transaction of purchasing the property which we cannot believe how quickly everything went through. Antonio was really good when we went to complete the purchase at the notary explaining everything making us all feel very secure. Again Thank you for a really professional and friendly service.

We found Karen & Brenda to be super friendly
We found Karen and Brenda to be super friendly and very helpful when purchasing our new home. They listened carefully to what we wanted and found us our dream property within our budget. They were very patient at all times and have provided a great after sales service. We felt that we could ask anything and still pop into their office with questions The whole thing has been an excellent experience helped by Antonio Deltell Pastor a local property law specialist who helped us with sale.Lucy Atkinson (June 30th, 2014)
Thank you ladies, we wish you the very best of luck in your new office.
Having recently bought a wonderful property through Country Fincas, we have to thank Karen and Brenda whole-heartedly for their friendly and professional service they have provided over the last few months since we first expressed interest in buying a property in the La Zarza area. From viewings to completion and the hiccups encountered along the way! They have been absolutely wonderful. They helped with translation issues, introduced us to Antonio (who also did a marvellous job with all the legal issues ) and were always there when anything cropped up – nothing was too much trouble, even though we bombarded them with dozens of questions - they most definitely went above and beyond for us! It is no surprise that their business is expanding when the ethos of their company carries genuine customer care and attention to detail to provide an excellent and trustworthy service for everyone that steps foot through their door, it really comes across and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
Thank you ladies, we wish you the very best of luck in your new office.Gary Standaloft (June 4th, 2014)
My property was on the market with 4 different agents, guess which agent sold it
My property was on the market with 4 different agents, guess which agent sold it, yes, Karen and Brenda from Country Fincas. They were both extremely helpful and went out of their way to be of assistance to me. My Spainish is poor but when there was a problem they were always on hand to help, nothing was to much trouble. I would definitely recommend them if you are buying or selling.Peter Broyd (May 8th, 2014)

We bought an investment property through Country Fincas
We bought an investment property through Country Fincas - the plan is to improve it, fix its many problems and sell it. Brenda and Karen were honest about the state of the property (something that is refreshingly unique in my experience!), helped us make the right choices without applying any pressure at all and even offered to arrange for building work quotes - something well out of their job description. Both Karen and Brenda were never pushy and both have a great fun personality that made us warm to them quickly. All of this made the decision to purchase easy, and the process smooth and pleasant. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services, in fact we will certainly be using their services in the coming yearsRichard and Liesl Cavendar (April 24th, 2014)

Karen and Brenda, who are Country Fincas, are the two most committed and professional estate agents we have ever met.
Karen and Brenda, who are Country Fincas, are the two most committed and professional estate agents we have ever met. They take the time to get to know their customers, buyers and sellers alike, and do their utmost to meet their needs.
We found their knowledge, patience and commitment reassuring, and are sure that without their support and advice from viewings to actually buying our property we would probably have given up!
Having supported their clients up to the point of signing their aftercare continues - any questions about local tradesmen or services, need anything translated ............the list goes on, they are only too happy to help! With a service like this why would you go anywhere else? John and Louise Banks.John and Louise Banks (April 6th, 2014)
We never felt pressured or pushed into anything.

Karen and Brenda are simply the Best. They sold our house for us
Karen and Brenda are simply the Best. They sold our house for us last month which was not straight forward. They sorted every thing out for us without too much stress. They are very professional in every aspect, but on saying that they feel like good friends. We would recommend Country Fincas above any body else in the area. We wish you girls all the best in your new office. Kind Regards Kaye And FrankKaye and Frank Stevens (March 7th, 2014)
Professional handling of the sale of our house
David and Carol Botham would like to thank Country Fincas for their professional handling of the sale of our house recently. We were helped all along the way and nothing proved to be too much trouble. Everything was handled with tact and diplomacy, all enquiries sorted out and we felt safe in their hands. Not only did we sell our old home through Country Fincas, we also bought our new one through them. They arranged everything for us from day one, thus taking the stress away and everything went smoothly. Once again a big thank you to Brenda and Karen and we would certainly give them our highest recommendation. Best wishes for the future, David and Carol.David & Carol Botham (February 12th, 2014)
Looking for a house in a warm country
My wife and I were looking for a house in a warm country, after a visit to our friends who have been a couple of years living in La Zarza, we also felt attracted to this region. They brought us in contact with Brenda and on Sunday morning we visited together with her some houses including the house in Las encebras, which we bought in February 2014. Brenda helped us on a professional manner throughout the entire purchase process. Even after purchase we can count on her for all kinds of questions. Since we have only positive experiences we can highly recommend Country Fincas and Brenda. Thank you Brenda in helping the realization of our dream.

Buying and selling is stressful under any circumstances
Dear Brenda and Karen, when I purchased my home in Spain 11 years ago this was done by power of attorney and I just moved in straight from the UK. Having decided to move inland to a Spanish finca, I had no idea of the process. I certainly didnt realise the searches required and the methods to go through. Buying and selling is stressful under any circumstances and as a lady senior citizen, this process could have been so much more traumatic. With your knowledge and expertise and your empathy with an old codger you relieved the stress and assisted with translations not only with the notary but setting up the internet, information on local trades people, dealing with the bank and setting up direct debits. Most importantly directing me towards Spanish tuition! Thank you both for being so patience and your humour, all so much appreciated. With very best wishes and grateful thanks. Diana LuckDiana Luck (December 13th, 2013)
When I retired, I had one more desire, spending the rest of my days in a quiet home under the Spanish sun far away from the Belgian air pollution
When I retired, I had one more desire, spending the rest of my days in a quiet home under the Spanish sun far away from the Belgian air pollution. This was easier said than done, everyone reads on various forums the fateful histories from cheated buyers. Because we did not want this, we were looking for a suitable house and after a long search we thoroughly found this. Our problem was, with whom we would purchase it since the same property was offered at a dozen offices. We have been making this exercise several times during a month and every time we came to the same conclusion: Country Fincas is the place to be.
Now, months later, we are very relieved that we have made this choice. Brenda and Karen have us very well received and partly guided in the purchasing process. After I stepped outside the notaries, I thought, thats it, however, the reality is far from this. Experience has taught us very quickly that solving certain issues needed professional assistance and know-how. And if we take Karen and Brenda at all levels for the help and support that we already obtained to date, is incontrovertibly invaluable. Moreover, they have always listened to us and we were always friendly and obliging received. Our golden advice concerning real estate, including rent, buy, sell, the best address in hours around is undoubted COUNTRY FINCAS.
Feel free to visit that cozy little office in Carrer del Duque de la Torre 2 in Pinoso as Brenda and Karen are definitely worthy of your trust. Success guaranteed and adore the very nice peoples from the Pinoso region as we doing. After all, the sun is free and you are never alone here.
Thank you very much Karen and Brenda for everything you did for us!De Craecker - Kemarskaia (December 9th, 2013)
Thank you both for all your help in selling our property in Pinoso
Hi Karen and Brenda. This is a short e.mail to thank you both for all your help in selling our property in Pinoso. Margaret and I spent 7 fabulous years here and only had to return to England for family reasons, but with your help all went perfectly smoothly. We were recommended to use your services through friends and you could not have been more trustworthy and reliable. During the selling process you not only rented our house to quality tenants but also found for us soon after quality purchasers. Your fluent Spanish and understanding of the legal system helps enormously and any problems that we might have had you solved for us. Simply terrific for what you did and thank you once again.

We would like to thank you both for all the hard work and time you put into selling our Villa for us
Hi Karen and Brenda, We would like to thank you both for all the hard work and time you put into selling our Villa for us. It was up for sale through a very difficult time for selling properties, you showed a number a people around the villa and came up with a buyer for us. During this time it was comforting for us to know that Alan was looking after the pool and the villa grounds and he did a great job for us. All the way through the sale you kept us informed of the progress and you were always contactable. When we arrived in Spain to complete the sale you made the completion run very smoothly without any last minute problems. We would gladly recommend your services to other people. Kind regards Robert and Sue CordenRobert and Sue Corden (December 9th, 2013)
From start to finish they looked after us the way a mother looks after her children
Someone used the term Estate Angels about Brenda and Karen and I have to say its a really good way to explain what sets them apart from other estate agents. From start to finish they looked after us the way a mother looks after her children. They listened to the brief, understood our requirements, didnt push the budget, just worked within it. They showed us a range of houses and were professional and reasurring throughout our journey. From organising a food parcel for the day of our arrival, sorting out electricity bills, arranging to have the place cleaned and even checking if a 7.5 tonne lorry would fit up the narrow road when we arrived they were brilliant. They made sure the contract was drawn up and written in both Spanish and English, came with us to translate, to organise papers, and even helped sort out a social security number. In addition to the personal service, they found us our dream house and brought it to us within budget, something we had started to think wouldnt happen.
Would we recommend them? You bet we would, in fact we already have. If you're nervous at the prospect of buying in Spain then rest assured that Brenda and Karen will hold your hand all the way and make the buying part the stress free bit of moving to Spain. - Thanks ladies, we can't express just how much we appreciate all you have done for us, you are both fabulous!

Without the expertise of country fincas I doubt the house would have sold within three days
We found the service from country fincas to be both professional and supportive. The staff were honest in their appraisal and dealt with the many issues that we had in a timely manner. Without the expertise of country fincas I doubt the house would have sold within three days ,and without their valuable support and guidance all the problems we encountered would have been insurmountable for us as non Spanish speaking sellers. An excellent service. L E Hall ,William HallWilliam and Linda Hall (November 26th, 2013)

Hi Brenda and Karen, finally found time to thank you both for all your assistance in the purchase of our apartment in Pinoso.

Brenda & Karen were fantastic whilst searching for our new home
Brenda & Karen were fantastic whilst searching for our new home. They listened to our wants & needs eventually finding us our perfect home, Once our offer had been accepted, we were guided through the whole buying process up until completion, which was very reassuring given our currently limited knowledge of the Spanish language. Since our purchase, the after service has been equally good. Alan weed-kills & landscapes our garden, carried out construction work & provides regular emails to let us know everything is OK. Karen & Brenda receive our utility bills & let us know when payments are due, & have helped us overcome all the small things we have encountered owning a house in a different country.
We couldn't recommend Country Finca's more highly and now regard them as our friends that helped make our dream come true. Thank you!John and Clare David (November 7th, 2013)

I spent months online while looking for land and apartments to purchase in Spain, thankfully I came across Country Fincas. Karen and Brenda both worked amazingly well to find me exactly the opportunities I was looking for. Together with Antonio, they arranged everything from ‘A to Z’ making what could be a difficult and complicated process, simple. Even after the sales were completed the service didn’t end as the team helped with the delivery of my furniture, definitely going the extra mile. I have no hesitation to recommend anyone thinking of buying in Spain to contact Country Fincas. Thank you once again Karen and Brenda.Sam Jarvis (October 18th, 2013)
The whole process was made a lot easier
We bought our house in Canada De La Lena through Country Fincas. We came from the USA to deal with another company and stayed with Dirk and Ria Derkinderen at their B and B, which is called Casa Ria in Chinorlet. Dirk quickly realised we were on the wrong track and introduced us to Karen and Brenda. The whole process was made a lot easier with the help of these three people. There are a lot of hoops to jump through when buying a property in Spain.Dirk worked tirelessly organising our necessary paperwork. We are looking forward to coming to live in Spain as soon as possible. We are so happy with our purchase,right from the first look at the property, we were hooked. Thanks again to all concerned.

There is no doubt about it Brenda and Karen from Country Fincas are Estate Angels
There is no doubt about it Brenda and Karen from Country Fincas are Estate Angels. They are professional, knowledgeable, efficient, committed, kind, and patient. They were understanding of our needs and have a much appreciated sense of humour. From our very first meeting they understood what we wanted, probably better that we knew ourselves, they showed us numerous properties all of which met our specifications and by the end of the day we had found the ONE. Buying a property is stressful but buying a property abroad, especially when you don’t stay there is more so, Brenda, Karen, Antonio, Louisa, and dont forget Alan
What a great professional and efficient Team. I cannot recommend them enough, they have helped us so much, from NIE numbers, banking, purchasing, insurance, electricity, sorting out all of our problems big and small, and much, much more, they have worked tirelessly on our behalf and we appreciate their efforts greatly. We are now the very proud owners of a fab apartment in Pinoso, which by the way is a beautiful place to be, and feel grateful that we have made new friends and look forward to Wine Time in December. From the bottom of our heart we thank you, Mark and Rhona Paul and family xxMark and Rhona Paul (October 14th, 2013)
What first impressed me about Country Fincas was that they had listened to my criteria
I came across Country Fincas via the internet while looking at houses to buy in Spain. They had a property that appealed to me so I contacted them and they sent me another 5 properties to look at.
I flew over from Cyprus for just a 2 day viewing and although the original house had been sold, I viewed the others. What first impressed me about Country Fincas was that they had listened to my criteria and acted on those but also had a feel for what I was looking for. Every house I viewed had something about it (some wow factor) that I liked but I fell immediately for the one I have now purchased.
Living in Cyprus and working in Africa, my time allowed for this house purchase was extremely limited and it was now that Brenda and Karen from Country Fincas really excelled. They literally set up everything for me from bank accounts to NIE registration, a lawyer and even great accommodation while I was there. This saved me a huge amount of time and hassle.
Their local knowledge is exceptional but also their personal nothing is too much trouble approach. It takes all the pain out of overseas buying and this was my first purchase in Spain. I hope it wont be my last as I see fantastic opportunities currently. I will also be using Country Fincas for renting my house out and managing it while I'm away abroad. I have no hesitation in recommending Country Fincas to anyone considering buying in the Alicante/Murcia area of Spain. Best regards Phil MawerPhil Mawer (October 13th, 2013)
You have continued to give fantastic after sales support

Hi Karen and Brenda. We wish to say a big Thank you for dealing with the sale of our home. Although a little bit scary at times you both made us feel comfortable that everything was on track for the sale. Can we also thank Antonio for his knowledge and professionalism. The new owners are happy as we are too. Thanks again. Tom and Barbara BurnsideTom and Barbara Burnside (October 11th, 2013)
You put together the viewing and the purchase contract in just a few hours
Hello Karen and Brenda. May we both thank you for everything you did to make the property purchase go so smoothly. Considering the time frame of our initial visit, 1 day, it was amazing you put together the viewing and the purchase contract in just a few hours. It was exceptional that you had such a good relationship with Antonio, the lawyer. A sure signal of real professionalism in action. From the initial internet contact to the links with legal, banking, money transfer and local registration all completed in 2 days your efforts were all joined up and seriously impressive. Hope business is going well You deserve and will succeed. Best wishes and see you in January. Keith and Jan LewisKeith and Jan Lewis (October 10th, 2013)
We found the perfect house at such an amazing price
Dear Karen and Brenda. First I would like to apologise for taking so long to get this note of appreciation to you both personally as people and as a professional business. - We were really grateful for the support, before even coming to Spain, as you did your best to find out exactly what we were looking for and price range, which met our expectations on arrival, as you gave us a variety of options. - Thankfully with all your hard work, we found the perfect house at such an amazing price, you made the whole process so easy and without any confusion, we felt confident in leaving things with you, which we couldn't organise being out of the country and you went the extra mile in this many times, seeing to many things, getting things in order to comply with the Spanish rules which are not in your remit. - You also referred us to an amazingly efficient legal team Antonio Pastor who smoothed out all Spanish legality and made us think we were in an English environment due to the excellent communication and his skilful translations , I would tell anyone to use his expertise. He assisted in many ways also not in his remit right down to the last thing needed in the house. I cant believe how easy you all made the whole process, so enjoyable, and exciting and you put us at ease and left us confident and so, so, pleased as punch, at our new home and we look forward to staying in such a lovely town with people who genuinely care, and do their work with pleasure, ease and excellence. - And also thank you for referring us to local builders to assist in completing the house who also have done that bit more than what was required of them.Sharon Donald (October 2nd, 2013)
The Country Fincas team were excellent
We have visited many villas with several estate agents both in the Malaga and Alicante regions and can safely say that the Country Fincas team were excellent, from the first visit right though to the purchase of our lovely new home in salinas. We felt safe in the hands of very competent and always available people. Geoff and Hyacinthe TrollGeoff and Hyacinthe Troll (August 14th, 2013)
Your calm, helpful and knowledgeable support, made my long search for the ideal property a pleasure
Thanks Karen and Brenda of Country Fincas. Your calm, helpful and knowledgeable support, made my long search for the ideal property a pleasure. I'm so happy that you both really tried to support my search rather than push your sale, this way, I ended up with peace of mind and a property which I really can call a home.

Your friendly and relaxed approach along with your professional and dedicated service is a credit to you
Thanks for all your help in the sale of La Ermita. Your friendly and relaxed approach along with your professional and dedicated service is a credit to you. A massive thanks again for all you have done for us.Charles and Mary Bethell (August 8th, 2013)
Country Fincas are simply the best
We just wanted to say a massive thanks for everything you have both done for us. It has been a whirlwind couple of weeks for us and its only thanks to you and Antonio Deltell Pastor that we are now the very happy owners of our own little house on the mountain in Spain.
We could never have believed that from our first inquiry you would come up with the perfect property for us. From taking our parents to view it for us as we live in England, to working tirelessly on the day we made an offer to ensure the contract was completed.
When we told you our flights over to Spain was the following week and we could only stay 6 days you were not fazed. You said you would try to get everything done so that we would have our keys and all be completed before the flight home!! You were true to your word. Calmly you arranged appointments for us, put us in contact with Moneycorp for the best transfer rate for our euros and made our first house purchase in Spain as easy & stress free as possible. We could not have got our NIEs, opened our bank account or done the million and one other things without you both.
You have been with us every step of the way from the minute we landed and you took us to view the house to the Notary office the day before we had to fly back to England. No one can believe that just 15 days after we made our offer we are the proud owners of our holiday home in Spain (all completed within 5 days!!). We really cant thank you enough and to anyone thinking of buying a property there is only one place to go COUNTRY FINCAS are simply the best. - Thank you Karen & Brenda for making our dream come true.Gavin and Sue Ledger (July 6th, 2013)
They sold my villa quickly and also they helped me with other problems
If you are looking for an estate agent in Spain, you could do no better than going to Country Fincas. Karen and Brenda spend time and effort beyond their job at selling, or finding property to just your needs. They are helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them to do for you. - My husband sadly died last year so I had to put my villa up for sale and return to Wales. They sold my villa quickly and also they helped me with other problems, not even to do with villa sale. They made a sad time easier to deal with and I would like to thank them for everything they have done for me and would say if you are looking to buy in the Pinoso or surrounding areas Country Fincas is the place to go. THANKS KAREN and BRENDA for all your time and effort and friendship. Rosina ChristophersonRosina Christopherson (June 11th, 2013)
We’re very happy with our Country Fincas experience
If you are looking for a house in Spain, we would recommend Karen and Brenda. We were unsure of what type of property we wanted and they were more than willing to show us a range of different types of properties, not only in different locations around Pinoso but with different outlooks, amount of land etc.
Once we had found our ideal property, they were very patient regarding the number of questions we had and went out of their way to find the answers (even getting in touch with the original builder). Even then, there was no hard sell and they were understanding about giving us time and space to make the decision. Even the stress of buying the property was easier than expected, we’re very happy with our Country Fincas experience, sure you will be too. Ron and MoiraRon and Moira (June 9th, 2013)
We were assisted and helped above and beyond the call of duty by Karen and Brenda
One of the most important criteria about buying property in Spain and not being in the country must be the support, expertise and trustworthiness of the Agents handling the purchase. That we hit on two such people was more luck than judgment, but having found Karen and Brenda at Country Fincas in Pinoso we would like to recommend to any like minded people out there that they contact them if they want to find the perfect property whilst, at the same time, being treated with respect and courtesy.
We discussed at length our requirements with them and, within 24 hours, had many appointments to view interesting properties. We went with one or other of them on a guided tour of the entire area with accompanied viewings. Within a period of 4 weeks we found exactly what we were looking for. We were assisted and helped above and beyond the call of duty by Karen and Brenda. They made themselves available to us and at all times, and were accommodating to our tight schedules until we had completed our purchase. We cannot praise them enough and look forward to inviting them to the first dinner party in our new home. Margery and Andy.Andy and Margery (April 7th, 2013)
We want to thank you for your tireless patience.
Hello Karen and Brenda, at first we want to thank you for your tireless patience. In the many months that we needed to find a house, you two was in the end the only broker who understand what were looking for and now have found. Again and again you two were ready to show other homes and they was thanks to your great range of homes not a few. Now we are, also thanks to your negotiating destiny, happy houseowners. We look forward to the first BBQ evenings in our beautiful garden, where we would be delighted to welcome you two. Please excuse our bad english but we think you know what we like to tell you two. See you soon in Pinoso. A big thanks again from the involuntary long time camper Dirk & MichaelaDirk & Michaela (March 10th, 2013)
I can't reccommend them highly enough
Brenda and Karen were fantastic from the very start. Not only did they help me to find my perfect holiday home in the most beautiful area of Spain there service didn't stop there. They helped me right through the buying process, giving me advice and reassurance all the way. They provided translation and interpretting services, got me my NIE and even sorted the tax paperwork for me all free of charge. I sill trust them implicitly with all my affairs in Spain and they now look after my property for me and rent it out for holidays whilst I am not there, providing me with a great little income! I can't reccommend them highly enough, they are proffessional, honest and have become good friends into the bargain. - Bobby JackBobby Jack (February 7th, 2013)
You listened to us and found out what we were looking for
Dear Brenda & Karen, we wanted to tell you how happy we feel, now that we are proud owners of the Almond Bodega at Chinorlet near Pinoso.
You have handled everything with great calmness and patience! We never thought - when we came to stay for a holiday in July, this year, that you would find the perfect home that we had been searching for, for the last 2 years! You listened to us and found out what we were looking for. You were not pushy. You kept us informed and calm at every step of the way and have offered help with accommodation for the period when we needed it for the visit to the Notary. Also helped to get our NIE quickly and efficiently. You have offered advice on building regulations and planning for our proposed new pool.
Thank you Brenda and Karen, and Antonio for making our dreams come true! With Best Wishes Andy and Ros BarnesAndy and Ros Barnes (December 21st, 2012)
Thanks very much Brenda and Karen
On our holiday in August 2012 we met Brenda and Karen from Country Fincas. Together we visited several villas in Alicante region. In La Canalosa we found our country house on a very large plot with a stunning view on the mountains. Brenda and Karen helped us with everything you need to buy a totally legal house in Spain: from gestor to notary. Brenda and Karen recommended Antonio Deltell Pastor in Pinoso as a gestor. A very dedicated and knowledgeable person we highly recommend. Since Friday the 16th of November 2012 we are the very lucky owners of a nice country house in Spain. - Thanks very much Brenda and Karen. - Best regards, Hans & Julia (Holland).Hans & Julia (Holland).

Brenda and Karen held our hands every step of the way, making the whole process as simple as it could be
We recently purchased property through Country Fincas. - Brenda and Karen held our hands every step of the way, making the whole process as simple as it could be, but more importantly, with a reassuring approach which would be most accurately described as 'personable professionalism'. Never pressured; always genuinely caring and communicative. Both Brenda and Karen have an obvious passion for what they do, and that enthusiasm is demonstrated in their efforts to make your experience as hassle free as is humanly possible. First class service, which comes with unreserved recommendation.Matt and Roxy (November 10th, 2012)
We want to thank you both for all the help you gave us, before, during and after the buying process of our house
Hi Brenda and Karen, We want to thank you both for all the help you gave us, before, during and after the buying process of our house. Without your professional guidance and expertise it would have been daunting. You were there for us every step of the way, nothing was too much trouble, from translating, obtaining Nie certificates, visiting the bank and the notary. You both really made our purchase stress free and I would highly recommend your honest,friendly service to anyone wishing to buy or sell. Thanks again girls,you are a pair of stars.Susan and Phil (October 18th, 2012)
We both thought your service was outstanding

Thank you once again for being so helpful, friendly and for putting our minds at ease when we panicked. Best wishes, Jeanette and PaulJeanette and Paul (October 9th, 2012)
I felt totally confident in your honesty and your professionalism
Hi Brenda and Karen, just thought I'd drop you a line or two to express my many thanks for your services to me before, during and after my house purchase in Las Atalayas. Because I was buying my first house in Spain, it was to say the least a very daunting prospect with all the bad press regarding buying houses in Spain as reported in the UK! Im quite sure you picked up on my apprehensions with the resulting mass of questions and uncertainty I faced you with, however you went ahead and checked things out and sent reports and information to me on a regular basis. It wasn't long before I felt totally confident in your honesty and your professionalism. The final act as it were, at the Notary's office, where the 'deal is done' so to speak, your after sales care kicked in immediately when you offered any help and advise relating to my new house after I move in. So I can only state again many many thanks for your help in so many ways and may I wish you both all the very best in business and in health, and please do call for a cuppa when your passing.Bryan Dale - 4 October 2012 (October 4th, 2012)
We would like you for you help and hard work in the selling of our Spanish home

You delivered what you promised a buyer for our property. We always felt reassured and safe in your hands. Which is very rare. We will and would not hesitate in recommending you to friends and in fact have done so and you have also sold their house. We wish the very best for the future.Steve Rogers (August 13th, 2012)

Country Fincas were a great help when we bought our lovely new home in the country
Country Fincas were a great help when we bought our lovely new home in the country with their assistance. Nothing was any trouble to the girls and their attention to detail meant that our purchase, although not stress free, went through very smoothly. A very professional serviceDavid and Sheena (August 12th, 2012)
Thank you for taking us to view the properties
Firstly, thank you for taking us to view the properties – you were both very professional and very good company into the bargain! It was exactly the thing we needed to do as not only did we see that we really liked the area but also some of the properties were to our liking.Tony and Margaret (March 12th, 2012)
Brenda and Karen went that extra mile for us without hesitation.
We would just like to take the opportunity to thank and to recommend Country Fincas. We were both quite apprehensive and tense about the whole 'buying a house in Spain' but we needn't have worried. They negotiated a great deal for us, took us through each and every step with utmost professionalism, patience, and confidence. Without these two women we probably would have never gone ahead after all the horror stories we'd heard of estate agents in Spain. They did everything possible to assist us with all that was needed. They assisted us at the bank, the notary, they translated, advised re direct debits..nothing was too much trouble for these two women and it was all done with complete calm! Brenda and Karen went that extra mile for us without hesitation. Thank you so much, we wish you all the success you deserve.Caroline Wardle and Brenda McClure (February 11th, 2012)
Every small detail was attended to and nothing was too much trouble for them!
My wife and I were looking to purchase a property in Spain. We contacted Country Fincas telling them the type of property we required, within days they had offered us a property which was ideal for our needs! From viewing the property to the final signing of the deeds Brenda and Karen handled the whole process very professionally..taking the stress out of the purchase. Every small detail was attended to and nothing was too much trouble for them! The added bonus being they were knowledgeable..professional but above all very kind and honest. I would not hesitate to recommend.. anyone wanting to rent or purchase property to contact Brenda or Karen at Country Fincas.Keith Bakes (March 18th, 2011)
