At Sunset Properties Spain, our company ethos is all about customer service. We offer a friendly, reliable and professional service where we guide our buyers through the whole process from beginning to end. We never pressurise anyone into buying anything and we never abandon anyone one they have bought a property - once a client always a client.

Our comprehensive after sales service is very important to us. We know how hard it is to deal with the practicalities of setting up a new home in a foreign country where everything seems to be done differently from the systems we are used to. If you have bought a holiday home then you may not be here in Spain for much of the time and you will need a reliable source of advice and practical help. This is something we pride ourselves on and, over the years, we have dealt with all sorts of requests from clients who have bought a property through us weeks, months or even years after completion.

Our after sales service includes:
* Arranging for the connection of a telephone (where possible)
* Arranging a broadband internet connection (where possible)
* Registration with the local town hall - "empadriamento"
* Assistance with the opening and operating of a bank account
* Assistance with the opening of a post office box if your house is located out of the town
* Assistance with the transfer of the gas contract or arranging a new one
* Assistance in finding competitive house insurance
* Help in finding reliable builders and tradesmen
* Anything else you can think of!

About Sunset Properties Spain, Malaga

Welcome to Sunset Properties Spain.
The company was started in 2004 by Denise Hill who had already had three years experience in the real estate business in Competa. Sunset Properties covers the Axarquia region which is the area east of Málaga from Colmenar and Totalan in the west to Nerja and Frigiliana in the east, together with the many towns and white villages in-between. The ethos of the company is all about customer service and we like to think we make house buying and selling as worry free as possible for all our clients, both buyers and sellers. We're a highly professional team but we also enjoy what we do and like nothing better than getting to know you over a cup of coffee in the sunshine.
We know how daunting it can be to buy a new home in a foreign country, especially if it's your first experience of buying abroad and you're trying to manage it all from your home base. We've been there, we've done it and we have survived! We try never to forget what it felt like and will do our best to give you all the information you need about buying your home and about living in this area. Good communication is the key to reducing the stress for you. We make sure you are kept up-to-date on progress and always respond promptly to your phone calls and e-mails.

Our comprehensive after sales service is something we pride ourselves on; after all, our clients become our neighbours once the sale is made. It's nothing out of the ordinary for us to deal with calls about where to shop for light fittings, how to change a gas bottle or where to find a reliable plumber – sometimes weeks or months after the client has bought the property.
When you come to Competa, don't wander around the village trying to find us – we don't have an office but work from the internet. Experience tells us that most people who want to buy a house abroad usually begin their research on the internet. They identify the areas they are interested in and then check out the properties available in that area. At this stage we can start to help you via e-mail or by phone. We can talk to you about your requirements and your budget and then point you to the properties that might interest you.

Our property descriptions are comprehensive and include useful details like the size of all rooms, something most other agents don't provide. We also include lots of photographs because we think these are vital in helping you get a real idea of what a house is like. Having done the basic research you're ready to visit the area knowing that we'll only take you to see properties that meet your criteria – we know your time out here is often limited and you need to make the most of it (and leave time for a second or even third look at the one you fell in love with). Having said that, you are, of course, entitled to change your mind so you don't have to narrow down your options too much or too soon.
Give us a call and come to see us soon.
