Johan, Ingrid & Co

We are Ingrid and Johan and our two children Ricky and Mercina. Due to the often chilly and rainy weather, we were tired of our apartment in Ostend for some time already. For a long time we were quietly dreaming of a house somewhere in a beautiful spot under the sun. Croatia seemed interesting to us after a few holidays, but we had not yet discovered the spot to our liking. We’d often browse the internet to see what was on sale around the world, from Florida to Greece.

Strange but true, France and Spain were the last places we thought of. Southern France and Northern Spain did not appeal to us at all. We really are not the type to spend our holidays in a god-forsaken place in France, or to stay between the built-up coasts on the Costa Brava.

Until we ended up in Andalusia last year. You can find the peace of a small village with beautiful views, beautiful nature and the friendliest local people. And if you want that real holiday feeling, just take the car and go to the hustle and bustle of the big cities such as Malaga, Seville, Granada, etc. A tourist or a quiet beach; the choice is yours. We were really convinced that this was what we had been looking for for several years. Even during this short holiday in Andalusia, we already decided to sell our apartment in Ostend.

We decided to take Spanish classes together with the firm conviction to buy something in Andalusia. Pretty soon we ended up with Geert and Patricia. Our apartment was soon sold and we contacted Andalucia real estate again. A viewing appointment was made in November. Meanwhile, we searched the internet for houses in the region. Our preferences and some of the houses we wanted to see were emailed to Andalucia Real Estate. In November it was finally time and we met Geert and Patricia. At the office we first received a full and pleasant explanation of what is involved in buying a house. After this we went out with Patricia to visit houses. However, the choice did not become easier. Coincidentally, the last day we ended up in the mountainous village of Mondrón. This was also the region we had previously visited. There were two beautiful houses that we really liked. The viewings were closed on a terrace, where we could already discuss our choice with Patricia. After consultation with Patricia, we quickly came to an interesting offer and Patricia contacted the seller. Only an hour later we received an answer. We could slightly increase our offer or drop our first choice, but the difference was still too small to let our dream villa go. Therefore, we accepted the seller’s counteroffer. The next day we already had an appointment with the lawyer to arrange everything. These people also gave us a correct explanation of how everything would work. After a down payment, they checked that there were no construction violations, that everything had been built legally, that the papers were in order and that there were no more debts attached to the villa. Three months later we were the proud owner of our dream villa. The house was fully furnished, and we did not have much work. In February we were “boss in house” for the first time at our dream place. After a week of controlling everything, we returned home, tired, but satisfied. We really long for the next stay in our second “home” in this beautiful region. Our greatest thanks in all areas to Geert and Patricia. From the first to the last day they assisted us with everything, with cordiality, good advice and professional knowledge.

Thank you Andalucia Vastgoed for helping us realize our dream!
