Seller

We recently sold our townhouse through Olvera Properties and the level of professional service which we received has been outstanding, totally surpassing our expectations.
Where to start? Well, Olvera Properties’ comprehensive knowledge and analysis of the local and international property market is very impressive. Their skill in marketing our property to the widest possible range of potential buyers – both in Spain and internationally – was undoubtedly a major factor in the successful completion of the sale of our property. Olvera Properties brought a whole range of skills to bear – comprehensive knowledge of the local area and customs/culture, language skills, practical advice, excellent contacts in the local community (e.g. financial institutions, the local council, and every service provider from plumbers to language teachers in both the Spanish and Expat community), all-round helpful friendly service and – perhaps best of all – patience, perseverance and good humour. Nothing was too much trouble, no problem was insurmountable!
Zoe, Anne-Marie and Ian really looked after us through every aspect of our house sale and we are absolutely delighted with the end result. However Olvera Properties is more than an estate agency, it is a social hub and a contact point in the community of Olvera and for good reason. If you are looking for a property in the “real” Spain, or are looking to sell a property, look no further. We simply can’t recommend Olvera Properties highly enough.

Zoe of Olvera Properties couldn’t have been more helpful in selling our townhouse in Olvera & in a very short space of time. The service we received throughout the whole process was first class & everything ran as smoothly as could have been possible. Without Zoe’s expertise, professionalism & local knowledge things would have certainly been a lot more stressful & I’m sure we wouldn’t have sold the property in twice the time with any other agent in the area.

Buyer & Seller

We bought and sold our house in Olvera through Olvera Properties.
Zoe had endless patience when we were looking to buy, making sure we found the property that was right for us.
After living in Olvera for 4 years we decided to sell and once again Olvera properties dealt with everything. Anne-Marie liaised with potential buyers and took responsibility for viewings ect. making it very easy.
On the day of the sale, Zoe and Anne-Marie made sure all paperwork was correct, taxes due were paid and utility companies informed of change of owner.
For buying and selling we would recommend Olvera Properties.
Olvera is a beautiful place to live and using Olvera Properties made it very easy to happen!

I have recently purchased my little bolt hole in the beautiful white village of Olvera. I had been to Olvera on numerous holidays in the past and upon my return home was a frequenty visitor to the Olvera Properties website. When the time came for me to buy my own house in Olvera I knew that I wanted to do so through Olvera Properties because of their obvious expertise in property in this area and more importantly because of the unamimously positive reviews I had read from previous clients about the service provided by this company.

I’m glad to report that I am now a very grateful previous client. Anne-Marie and Zoe couldn’t have been more helpful and made the purchase of a house in Spain easier than buying a second hand car back home. From organising my NIE to helping with translations, organising cleaners, organising fiber internet (which unbeliveably was installed 4 hours later) and steering me through the legalities of buying in Spain, these two ladies were totally professional at all times.

I would strongly recommend anyone considering purchasing in this beautiful area to use Olvera Properties. They know the process inside out and made what I’m sure would otherwise have been a very difficult and intimidating process into a stressfree and actually enjoyable experience.

Nine years ago I discovered Olvera….& I never looked back! From my first contact with Olvera Properties, I felt confident that they understood my requirements, & were able to  show me houses that were very suitable. I very swiftly decided on my favourite & returned a month later to confirm the purchase. From then on, everything went so smoothly with all aspects of the purchase, & very quickly, I became  the proud owner of my very own little place in the sun.
Forward nine years, with a bit more money in the bank, I have recently bought property number two, one which ticks every box on my long list! Negotiations were conducted on my behalf with the vendor, & signing took place in January. Throughout, Anne-Marie & Zoe have been amazing, thorough & helpful. Plus, their extensive knowledge of local, trustworthy tradesmen & “all things Spanish”…..ie, burocracy!!!….is incredible! I can’t praise & thank them enough for making my dreams come true.

6 months after subscribing to Spain Magazine, I realised that every month, I was looking for the Olvera Properties ad! I loved the unconventional (in estate agent terms!!) upbeat descriptions, the lovely properties, & the wonderful view of Olvera at the top of the page. I think I’d already fallen at that stage!! I knew the Andalucian coastline, but had never really explored inland, so I didn’t really know anything about Olvera & the surrounding area. Having been fortunate enough to pay off my UK mortgage, I then decided it was time to take out another, at the grand old age of 59, & look into buying my dream home in the sun.
I contacted the company & arranged to fly out for a weekend to look at properties. It wasn’t an auspicious start as I left my driving licence at home!! But no fear, Olvera properties & Co to the rescue!! I was collected from Jerez airport by Pete & started my trip. The following morning, Zoe met me & took me to look at the 8 properties in Pruna & Olvera that I’d earmarked, leaving the one I thought most interesting till last. Guess what…the second I saw that house I loved it! We walked up the outside spiral staircase & it got its name, 5 minutes on the roof terrace & I had made plans! By the time I’d left on Sunday, I’d decided to buy. I returned in October to review everything & by January 2009, Stairway To Heaven was mine!
Throughout the whole process, I have nothing but praise for the team at Olvera Properties, guiding, translating, organising & generally making everything seem so simple. They are an amazingly friendly, & knowledgeable bunch, who make it all seem so simple, while no doubt gritting teeth on many an occasion when things don’t go according to plan, but keeping on till the job’s done. I have never bought a house with so little fuss & drama! It would still remain an impossible dream if it wasn’t for Zoe, Anne-Marie & the whole team. Thank you so much for making my dream come true!!

After selling our holiday cottage in Brittany we were looking for a complete change, and a hotter climate, and found this in Olvera. We visited several times to view properties and were looked after by Anne-Marie of Olvera properties, who showed us many houses and was extremely helpful. When we eventually decided that Olvera was the place for us both Anne-Marie and Zoe we there on the day we bought our house and provided valuable help and advice with every aspect of the purchase. Since then Olvera Properties have been an invaluable source of information and practical help with all aspects of setting up home from a distance. We heartily recommend Olvera properties to anyone looking for a property in Spain.

Buyer & Seller

We had been looking to buy a house in Spain for several years, our search had spread south from Sierra de Gredos, via Extremadura, Aracena and finally to Olvera. We first found Olvera Properties following a web search, the varied list of properties for sale, and the refreshing nature of the property descriptions with photos, convinced us that we should pay a visit. So in late 2008 our first visit (well not quite, I had passed through Olvera in 1992) and the general feel of the town, and the people, were positive. A brief short list of properties that we liked the look of resulted in arrangements being made for viewings. It took a few more visits and more lists of potential properties, Zoë’s patience was endless but it was all worthwhile.

We finally found something suitable the following Easter, and a couple of months later the purchase was complete. Throughout the transaction Zoë of Olvera Properties ensured that the process was as stress free as possible, and gave valuable assistance (and time) in sorting out our NIE formalities. Moving to a new property, many people like to tweak things a little, and Zoe had the contacts for various jobs that we wanted to have done on our casita de pueblo, all of which went very well.

Christmas 2009 we had our first family get together in our new home, which was very enjoyable, and we are now looking forward to spending more time there in the coming months to take advantage of the warm weather and the welcoming atmosphere, and of course those superb Olvera views from our new roof terrace..

Having used Olvera Properties when we bought our first house in 2010, (which is being successfully rented out as a holiday home)we had absolutely no hesitation in using them again when we decided to buy a second home in Olvera. We wanted a ruin that we could reform and put our own stamp on but finding a place that was just right for us was not easy. The houses we looked at were too big or two small or beyond our budget. Anne-Marie didn’t give up looking and she finally found us the perfect house. She then arranged inspections by a local builder and an architect, arranged quotes and gave us lots of helpful advice. The work on the house should be starting in the next couple of months and we should have our second dream home ready next year! Thanks again Anne-Marie and Zoe for all your invaluable help!

Karen, 2019

Having visited the South of Spain over the years looking to find the perfect property I managed to find the beautiful Olvera and luckily for me Anne Marie and Zoe the owners of Olvera Properties estate agents. From the viewing to completion of my new house, was to say the least made so much easier by the support and professionalism of this wonderful pair, nothing was too much trouble for them and they were and are always just at the end of the phone for any advice needed. In fact without them I would never have finally completed on the purchase. They are an asset to anybody considering buying a property in Spain and I would recommend a hundred percent.
