From : Gary & Carol from Manchester
We first got in touch with Spot Blue via the website in February 2012, we had spotted quite a few properties in Turkey that we could afford. We hadn’t at this point decided where to buy.
Me & my daughter flew out in February 2012 & had arranged to meet someone from in Antalya district ,we had a very successful viewing day with Bulent and his wife then we both flew to Izmir for 3 days where we were picked up at the airport & put up in a very nice apartment.
After some much needed rest we met with Jayne & Izzy for the first time , they took us out for dinner, straight away I felt at ease with them both , they asked what we wanted in a property what was important . We had already decided that a pool was very important to us, then lots of outside space & minimum of two bedrooms. We had already noted the properties that we wanted to view while in the area having never been to Altinkum we didn’t know what to expect, but after spending time there we fell in love with it.
Jayne & Izzy gave us great advice – it was obvious they had many years of experience helping other clients from England, nothing was too much trouble for them & I never felt any pressure to buy. In fact Izzy talked me out of a couple of totally impractical locations for our family, which I thought was lovely as i spent more time with them & they got to know us , they knew exactly what would be ideal for us.
After viewing lots we settled on a two bedroom two bathroom duplex apartment on Golden park in Altinkum. As soon as we had gone on the huge balcony upstairs I knew it was the one. Once our minds were made up Jayne & Izzy went to work, we had everything done for us, they arranged all the paperwork & meetings with lawyers & it was brilliant, they explained everything clearly to me & I had total confidence in them to put our best interest foremost.
As the process started, we were kept informed at all stages, it was very exciting when Jayne called to say everything was ready to complete & you would think that would be the end of the process, but this was totally not the case, as this was when Jayne turned into our Guardian Angel, she helped with furniture, even choosing it for us with Izzy having it delivered & put in situ, so when we went for our first time in July this year it was amazing , we were so pleased with what they had done for us, they also arranged the apartment to be cleaned & locks to be changed.
We have so much confidence & trust in the team in Altinkum we have asked them to look after the property while we are not there. What’s great about the service is that it doesn’t stop when you buy from them, they are always around when you need help & advice, they always make you feel welcome in the office. Me & my family will be regular visitors to see Jayne, Izzy & their extended family. As someone that a short time ago wouldn’t have dreamt I would be owning a property abroad, Turkey has been a great choice I feel so at home there & this is mostly due to the kindness & real genuine care we have had from Spot Blue.
Thank you Guys you’re all amazing, see you very soon.
