Winkworth has now opened a new real estate office in Guadalmina, Spain, which conveniently sits on the border of the resort town of Marbella situated in the Malaga region on the southern coast of Spain.
The real estate office, owned and operated by Bernard Vent, also a Winkworth Director in London, adds to the substantial Winkworth network of branches in the UK and overseas.
Together with an experienced multilingual team from Spain, the intention is to bring the established Winkworth brand to Guadalmina, Marbella, Estepona, Sotogrande and the surrounding area to help both locals and those overseas looking to relocate or for a holiday investment with all their property needs.
Vent, who has been a property owner in this area of Spain for many years, said it has been his goal to open a Winkworth office in the Marbella area in order to bring a different approach to property in the region.
“Drawing on the solid foundation of the Winkworth network of professional estate agents, the Spanish office intends to bring to UK buyers its professional standards coupled with a knowledgeable local team to assist foreign buyers in their property purchases. Due to language barriers, local laws or legal documentation buying a property in Spain can be a daunting prospect and its our goal to support the client through the whole process”, Vent explained.
Figures revealed by Deloitte’s fourth annual analysis of the Spanish housing market that Malaga is one of the most popular parts of Spain and foreign buyers favour coastal areas and during Q2 of 2014 there were 2,499 property transactions, a level not seen since 2007, a 30 per cent increase over Q3 2013.
The opening of this new real estate office by such a known and established brand such as Winkworth is a positive indication that the worst of the Spanish property market issues is in the past and things are starting to look up for the foreign investor looking to buy property in Spain.
