Thank you so much for your email and excellent professional service supplied to Kim and I from your team in Fethiye, led by Gurol.
We had meetings with several Emlaks whilst looking, and I think we must have viewed 20/25 properties.
From the start, Spot Blue stood out a mile and we are happy to have purchased with Spot Blue.
Gurol and his team are now looking after us and our apartment.
As we say in England "People buy People" and that will never change!
Dear Spot Blue,
Myself and my Partner visited Turkey in September 2013 with a view to looking at properties to buy. We are both hoping to retire in 5 years time and we were looking to buy in Turkey because of the good weather with almost year round sunshine and also good value for money.
Before we visited we made sure that our finances were in order and also that we had an understanding of the process of buying in Turkey. We contacted Spot Blue who arranged for Gurol to contact us before our visit. Gurol is the local agent for Spot Blue in Fethiye. Gurol spoke to us before our visit and was very interested to know what sort of properties we wanted to view.
When we visited, Gurol showed us properties that matched our criteria. We wanted somewhere with its own pool in a quieter area. We looked at several properties and when we looked at our Villa in Ciftlik both myself and my partner knew we wanted to put an offer in. We were very nervous about the whole process but need not have been. We were supported at every stage by Gurol and his English wife.
We are now the proud owners of the Villa. I visited the villa in December with my mother to enjoy shopping for some items of furniture and am now looking forward to my next trip when we can use the swimming pool.
One thing that I particularly liked about the service I received was that it didn't stop once we were the new owners. We continued to be looked after and Gurol is making arrangements to have our villa and pool managed. We felt as though it was really important to have good ongoing services and that is certainly what we have received.
Alison and Dave
A big thank you to Jayne and all the staff at Spot Blue for finding us a perfect apartment. There was no sales pressure and all our questions and concerns were answered honestly. Spot Blue took us through the complete buying process without any fuss. We would never have been able to do it without them. They are also there for aftersales help. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Recently we have purchased our dream apartment in turkey with the help of Janyne at Spot Blue.
Jayne and all the staff at Spot Blue were truly amazing and held our hands through the whole process from explaining all cost clearly, arranging solicitors, translators, notary and even helping us to set up bank accounts, there is no way we could have done this without her help.
Even now the sale has been completed Jayne is still in regular contact, helping us with all odd bits, unlike any other estate agent we have ever known.
We would highly recommend using spot blue for foreign property purchases it makes the entire process a breeze and relieves the majority of any doubts as you can be assured you are in safe hands.
Just a final big thank you to all at the Spot Blue office for your help and guidance with our purchase, we have our dream home now and can not thank you enough for all your support.
2nd December 2013
Dear Jayne and Izzy,
Just wanted to put into writing our sincere thanks for everything.
This is how it started!
We had been thinking of buying a “place in the sun” for quite a while, we had never before been to Turkey, but had done quite a bit of research. We saw a property for sale through Spot Blue and made contact with them. After a couple of emails with Jayne, we had booked a flight to Bodrum, upon informing Jayne I had booked flights she was immediately in contact with me by phone arranging to meet us at the airport.
My husband and I landed at Bodrum at 8pm, as soon as I switched my phone on there was a text from Jayne saying she was in the café waiting for us. So we met Jayne and Izzy for the first time. They had arranged an apartment for us to stay in, but before taking us there, stopped off to have an evening meal and a chat, really lovely people.
We were dropped off at our apartment and they arranged to pick us up the next day to view properties. We went to their offices in the morning where we chatted and they got to know us a little bit (which was great that they took time to get to know us, it’s a very personal service) and also the type of property we were looking for.
Soon we were off with a list of properties to look at, we viewed many properties that day, I took photo’s as we went round so that I could remember them later. We were on a short 3 day visit and I wasn’t sure we would find a property. We finally set our hearts on a place in Akbuk. Once we had decided Izzy did the sale and from then we had a mad wiz! Izzy and Jayne took care of everything, every step of the way, all the official bits and all the unofficial bits, like taking us shopping for furniture etc. nothing was too much trouble. They even came and picked us up in the evenings to show us around the area.
Jayne and Izzy have much knowledge, they have been in this business many years anything we asked them from buying, renting to paying bills, visas, flights, local area information, absolutely anything they could answer questions on they did.
We have just returned back from our second visit, where we have had the same courteous treatment from Spot Blue. Izzy took us to sign for our deeds, set up our electricity and water accounts, took us shopping….again. Introduced us to a beautiful Patisserie! Again doing as much as possible to get things sorted for us on our very short trip. Even down to the fact that Izzy will be organising a few extra jobs we wanted doing on the property while we are not there, so that it will all be ready for us when we arrive for our first official stay in our new holiday home.
I can’t express enough how much the team at Spot Blue do to get their customers organised with everything. It’s an amazing experience to be taken under their wing and guided through the process of buying a property. You do here stories from websites etc., of things going wrong, but from my heart I would recommend Spot Blue to anybody who is thinking of buying a property in Turkey. They really go above and beyond.
So, a great big THANK YOU to Izzy and Jayne and all the rest of the team.
Just to add to my letter…… I have been sitting reflecting on our trip to Turkey.
Something Izzy said while we were there, I had asked - if we needed anything once the “deal” had been done could we pop into the office in Altinkum – astounded Izzy said just come in to say hello and have a tea anytime, you don’t have to have reason or a problem. I realise we are now friends, not just customers.
The thought of buying a property overseas can easily be overshadowed by wrong doings & bad deals .... not so when dealing with Jayne, Izzy and the gang at SPOTBLUE - from the very beginning, the help we received was SPOT ON, not in the least bit pushy and always professional, helpful & friendly. We were shown plenty of properties - settling for the 1st one as it was! All the legal work & papers were clearly explained, no language barrier problem and if we didn't understand something or had any questions, again, what can we say - SPOT ON!!! Nothing was too much trouble for them, and their after sales is proving invaluable too.
We would gladly recommend this Company to anyone - so THANK YOU ..........SPOT BLUE :-)
"Just sold my property in Turkey, sorry to see it go but Spot Blue made it all so easy. Jayne and the team took care of everything, with their friendly helpful service, they kept me informed of all developments. I would happily recommend Spot Blue and would absolutely talk to Jayne and the team first if I was ever thinking about buying in Turkey again."
"We chose Spot Blue to sell our property because of their position in the international marketplace relative to local agents in Turkey. We were not disappointed in our choice. The marketing from the UK office was superb, and included being featured on the front page of “A Place in the Sun” website. Equally the sales process in Turkey was also first class. Only serious buyers were presented for viewings and the property was subsequently sold very quickly (to a family from Kuwait).”
Dear Charlotte, Pauline and Julian,
I would like to thank all of you for your hard work, dedication and perseverance in seeing the villa sale through to a positive conclusion. As you state, it has not always been easy and even at the end GUL had more challenges to deal with. It has been a pleasure working with you all over the past 12 months and i think the issues we came across show the importance of using such a professional firm like yourselves along with the legal services of GUL.
I would fully recommend your services at Spot Blue to any one looking to sell their property in Turkey.
Thanks for the telephone call yesterday, we would like to thank you and all at spotblue for all you have done for us in making the purchase of our apartment in calis beach go through very smoothly.
WE would also like to thank Charlotte & Pauline in Fethiye for being so helpful in finding us our apartment which we love, and to know they are still there for us if we need any questions answered in the future,
Me and lee would recommend spotblue to anybody thinking of buying property in turkey, and would use them if we needed to sell or think about buying another property in the future.
Thanks again to you all
Spot Blue, Altinkum Branch
We have been returning to Altinkum for around 7 years and eventually agreed to buy a property there. We had been out with a number of agents who had taken us to properties that were not on our original specification. After speaking to Lawrence in the UK we were introduced to Jayne and Izzy at Spot Blue Altinkum who were absolutely fantastic in helping us to view the types of properties we were interested in, saving us a lot of time.
After spending 2 days viewing in July and returning in October for another days viewing with Izzy and Jayne our preconceived ideas about buying in a different area ofTurkeyhad been well and truly tested!!
The buying options available in Altinkum were many and varied but we insisted on a property with a view (I had said a sea view but would be happy with a view of any description). After lengthy discussions, re-visits and a lot of debate we finally selected our perfect home in Altinkum. It has the most amazing view of the sea AND Didim town. Absolutely perfect!
Within less than 2 hours we had seen a lawyer, obtained a Turkish tax number and a Turkish bank account!
Jayne and Izzy certainly took the stress out of buying abroad. Their knowledge, advice and most of all patience and ‘non pushy’ attitude really helped us achieve our dream. Thanks to Spot Blue, and especially Jayne and Izzy. We can’t recommend them highly enough!
My husband and I decided to retire to Turkey, but as we lived in New Zealand at the time, it made it essential that we find a good property company to help us, after spending considerable time talking to different companies and investigating them on the internet, Spot blue overseas property stood out from the crowd.
Once we had made the decision to go with Spot Blue, everything was great. Pauline the local representative in Fethiye, got in touch with us, always allowing for the 10 hour time difference. We discussed our requirements, from arranging our accommodation and pickup and allowing time for us to get over the jet lag before we would start house hunting. At no time did we feel under any pressure, the repartee between Pauline and Onur made the housing hunting enjoyable and fun.
We cannot recommend Pauline and Onur highly enough for being one of the best professional team you could have. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they take into account all your requirements and produce the best properties for you so see.
We found the perfect Villa to buy and the purchase procedure from placing the offer until we received our Tapu, was fantastic, Pauline and Onur where their every step of the way, and kept you informed at all times.
Once they purchase process is over they still keep in touch, to check if they can still be of assistance, we now count Pauline and Onur as trusted friends.
Jim and I would like to thank you for all the help and advice we were given prior and during the buying process of our apartment in Ovacik.
We are now the proud owners of a beautiful holiday home and cant believe how simple the process was.
Having previously tried to purchase in Spain a few years ago we were a little nervous and apprehensive. From the moment we first contacted Spot Blue we knew we were in safe hands. We were taken through the whole buying process step by step prior to our visit to Turkey last September
We had already booked a 2 week holiday to Turkey before we contacted Spot Blue so decided this would be the perfect time to look for our holiday home.
Pauline from Spot Blue showed us around a number of properties and she knew exactly what we were looking for. There was no pressure put upon us and she helped make the whole process very easy. She listened to what we wanted and could not have been more helpful.
Once we found our property Pauline introduced us to a Solicitor and went with us to the Notary.
We completed our purchase on the 22nd February 2011 and cant believe how simple the buying process was. We were kept informed the whole time and would highly recommend Spot Blue who found us exactly what we asked for.
In the future we may look for something a little larger and we will most definitely be contacting Spot Blue when the time comes.
Thank you again for all your help
Warmest Regards Linda and Jim
We were hugely impressed by the professionalism and courtesy shown by the whole team, especially Izzy, Jayne and Sharon who were quick to recognise certain needs such as my mum and dad's mobility, therefore eliminating properties that would clearly not be suitable and saving time to look at better suited properties.
"My wife and I decided we would like to purchase a holiday home in Turkey and contacted Spot Blue after reading about them in the Sunday Times. Being a business man myself, I was apprehensive about potential pitfalls dealing with the law and culture of a different country. Spot Blue put me in contact with Pauline, based in Turkey, who simply could not have made it any easier or pleasant! We did not buy a property, but did purchase a plot of land and built a villa of our own design on it. We stayed this summer in it for the first time and it was simply bliss!"
On my return here to the UK I want to thank you most sincerely for all your assistance in my search for "the ideal property" on the Turquoise Coast. When I visited the Fethiye region your representatives, Pauline and Chris, were exceedingly helpful. Not only did they provide me with a great amount of useful information but they also arranged many viewings of contrasting properties. I think some of these were cleverly chosen because although one or two did not necessarily co-incide with all my stated requirements, they did give me "food for thought" because a quite different (albeit equally attractive) life-style was possible. At no time did your "Spot Blue" representatives exert undue sales pressure which one can often encounter - and which is most off-putting to many people, myself included. Although on this occasion I did not find what I was looking for, my experience with "Spot Blue" was most positive and I would be happy to use your services in the future should circumstances be appropriate. I would certainly have no hesitation at all in recommending you to other prospective purchasers. Thank you again for such an efficient and friendly service. Yours sincerely, Mr Welsh
Thank you for your assistance in helping us with our new adventure. We appreciate all your help. Please pass on our thanks to Jayne, as her, Izzet and the rest of his family were a credit to your company and could not do enough to help us through this very big transformation within our lives.
Just like to say that Bulent did a great job in advising us and was very professional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your agency to anyone. Thank you
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for arranging the inspection trip. We found it extremely informative and would like you to pass on our very big thank you's to the people that showed us around. As they made us relax and very friendly, also extremely helpful. The properties they showed us although not always the ones we picked from your web site were very nice, and gave us a very good overview of all types of properties available to us. The current situation is we are considering a couple of the properties and waiting on some information to see if we can proceed, as we have decided to concentrate on Belek only.
I recently decided to purchase a property in Turkey and used Spot Blue to assist. They arranged a long weekend visit to look at the Tuzla Park site in Bodrum. Right from the very beginning I found Spot Blue to be very helpful and very professional and took what I felt to be a very personal interest, and kept me informed at all times. They arranged the return flights and hotel and we were met and looked after by their representative at all times and we were able to decide when we wanted to visit the properties. At no time were we pressurised into buying but the complex and properties we looked at were exceptional and we proceeded with the purchase. Spot Blue still keep in regular contact and I feel at ease with the staff in this country who are keen to make sure that we are being looked after at all times. I would highly recommend Spot Blue if buying overseas.
Would like to give a big thank you to Julian for the tremendous advice involved and connecting me up to his agent in Fethiye. Pauline was great and supportive in assisting me with my purchase. For 2 people that have shown and delivered so much patience, attention, trustworthy and so helpful in sharing their knowledge and information, I would thoroughly recommend this company to anyone who is thinking of buying. No pressures and very professional.
Just writing to thank you for all the assistance you afforded my wife and myself when we contacted you recently regarding property purchase in Turkey. Although we will not be proceeding with a purchase at this time, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the courteous and informative manner with which you dealt with our many queries. All were responded to timeously, nothing was too much trouble for you and we were never at any time put under pressure to purchase. We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Spot Blue to anyone considering purchasing property in Turkey.
Thank you very much for your help. I will definitely recommend you and your services to anyone who is looking to buy property abroad.
I’ve recently returned from a most successful trip to Turkey with your company, and am writing to express my gratitude. I cannot praise too highly the service I’ve received.
All your staff both in the UK and in Alanya have been extremely helpful and courteous, with particular praise going to Lawrence in the UK who organised the trip plus Bulent & Mustofer in Turkey who drove us around. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble as they showed us numerous properties, and never once did I feel any ‘hard sell’. All the properties were carefully selected and almost all viable thus making the very best of our time.
Happily I have selected a property in Side and am currently going through with the purchase. I am also delighted with the offers of after sales service for assisting with the furnishings, legal & insurance aspects, right through to care of the property with regard to cleaning and even transfers to and from the airport. It really couldnÂ’t get any better.
I would certainly highly recommend your company to anyone.
Before we go, I would like to thank you YOU for all your help, time, things you've arranged for us, you are very very nice to talk to and really helpful on everything.
Just a quick note to let you know how very pleased we have been with the service that Spot blue have provided us with, we have had a recent short visit to Turkey, which was organised by you, and tailored to suit us, which has resulted in us purchasing our 1st property within the 2nd day in Turkey.
The service that Spot blue gave us has been excellent and the viewing trip and its itinerary was brilliant, the atmosphere was always relaxed, and no pressure was applied to us at all during the process. With your help we have now been able to find our Dream holiday home, and all my family hope to have many years enjoying it.
We have recommended Spot Blue to several of our friends, who are very interested, and we would like to say a very big thank you to everyone involved with this purchase.
We would thoroughly recommend Spot Blue to anyone. We were very dubious about buying abroad as we thought the language difference might cause problems but from the time we got in contact with Spot Blue they made the whole process so simple We chose the Altinkum area of Turkey as our destination as it has a big marina being constructed and is an up and coming area and also very affordable at present.
We booked a holiday there as we wanted a good look at what the resort had to offer. Spot Blue arranged to pick us up from our hotel and took us first to their Blue Bay office to explain everything we needed to know. We were then shown around properties in our price range ( we liked the fact that we weren't pushed into buying dearer properties that we couldn't afford )
Everyone in the office was helpful & very friendly. When we decided to purchase we were taxied around for any necessary requirements e.g tax numbers, bank accounts and translators, we cannot praise the service offered highly enough.
The service didn't stop there though :- the after sales service is superb with advice and help with utilities connections,furniture and curtains they are also able to offer reduced cost flight transfers from the airport and a home maintenance plan if required - nothing is too much trouble. We are looking forward to returning in a few weeks time to settle in to our new apartment.
We wanted to buy for a mixture of a holiday home and for investment. We decided upon Turkey as we had holidayed there in the past and always had a lovely time, it is such a scenic country with good food, nice people and lots to do.
We found the buying process really simple, in actual fact it was “Unbelievably easy to buy” with the help of Spot Blue. Spot Blue were great, both in the UK and Turkey, we actually thought it was unusual to find such helpful and knowledgeable people about the business they in.
From the moment we arrived at Antalya airport and were met by the Car Hirer Co arranged by the villa owner Huseyin, any doubt or worries we had about this trip melted away. We were taken directIy to the villas where we were met by Huseyin even though it was nearly 1 am, we were shown to the guest villa and after a good nights sleep we started our viewing of the villas without any pressure. We were shown 2 villas of which we were very pleased with, we were surprised that we had gardens. Huseyin and his wife Joy took us for lunch and we got on very well they also took us to see the beach at Kemmer, we had full days considering we were only there for 2 days. The process went very smoothly without any pressure what so ever and Huseyin could not have been more helpful; nothing was too much trouble. He did everything, we did not have to do anything except enjoy ourselves which we did, we could not praise them highly enough. We completed the legal process and within 6 weeks we had our military clearance and the villa was ours. We had never been to Turkey before but fell in love with country and the people.
I am just writing to say I had a wonderful experience whilst on my viewing trip in Altinkum recently. We were met by one of your reps Yusuf who was an absolute joy to be with. Yusuf went out of his way to be helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him. Yusuf showed us all the interesting sites in Altinkum as well as a varied array of properties. Even after we had chosen our property and signed the contract we were still given the 5 star treatment by Yusuf as he continued to spend his weekend taking us to many, many various furniture shops. We chose various pieces for our apartment, changed our minds, and changed them back again. Yusuf was as patient as a saint, offering help and advise throughout. I would just like to say that if it wasn't for Yusuf's wonderful personality, knowledge and guidance I am not too sure we would have purchased a property in Turkey, as it is a very daunting time and emotions certainly run high, but he made us feel at ease throughout the whole experience. Since my return I have spoken highly to many friends and colleagues about just how easy it is to become a home owner through them and how they take away the pre anticipated doubt and fear of the whole experience. I am over the moon about our purchase and just wish I had done it sooner.
Thank you very much - we're thrilled and very happy to be the owners of No 153 and look forward to many happy times there. We'd like to thank you very much for all your help and for making the purchasing process so easy and problem free. It's the easiest and most pleasurable house purchase we've ever done. We look forwrd to being in Turkey again soon.
We would just like to thank all the people involved with our purchase of our new home in Turkey in Side. The professional and personal assistance given by the Turkish partner Bulent and his staff was excellent. At no time were we put under any pressure and our feeling was that any questions we asked were answered honestly. As a result of the relationship we established with the Turkish end of your company we found a property which met our requirements. Their knowledge of the procedures involved enabled us to complete all the necessary documentation and government requirements within a single day when others had told us it could be a slow process. Once again thanks to you all and we would not hesitate to recommend your company to others.
What a wonderful company, nothing is too much trouble & we would highly recommend you to anyone considering buying abroad, Pauline, Miranda were warm, funny, friendly & very efficient. They took all the pressure out of buying in turkey & made our visit a fun time, thanks also to Julian for his help & understanding, I cannot praise you all enough for your hard work & help, once again our sincere thanks to all concerned.
Just wanted to thank you and spot blue for helping me to find my holiday place in the sun. I've just got back from a very successful viewing trip in Turkey and i have to say the level of service and professionalism from yourselves and the team in Altinkum was second-to-none.
From the moment I arrived at Izmir airport and was greeted by Ron Brown I new I was in capable hands. The hotel was more than adequate for my 4 day visit, and Ron was very prompt in collecting me the following morning to start viewing properties.
I certainly went having doubts about buying abroad, but after a discussion with Ron the offices in Altinkum, where we discussed my requirements and the itinerary for the duration of my visit I soon realised I was dealing with the right company and people who genuinely cared about their clients.
I'm pleased to say that I managed to purchase an off-plan apartment on the outskirts of Didim and within my budget to which I feel more than satisfied.
My apartment will be completed in June 2008 and I'm so looking forward to sitting on the balcony and toasting the delights of Turkey and to spot blue for making this possible.
Once again, thank you for all the assistance and advise you gave me and I wish you continued success.
Just returned from a very successful and wonderful holiday in Turkey! I am sure Charlotte has probably been in contact with you already, and advised that I have signed up for one of the apartments! I was impressed with the area, and the entire complex, and everything seemed to meet my criteria, so the wheels are now in motion! Really excited!
It is a shame that I spent so much time driving all the way north to the Bodrum Peninsular – but I suppose I needed to compare other places before I made a decision! Somehow, nothing seemed to come up to scratch having seen the development and our first viewing was in the pouring rain on a very dismal day! At least the sun shone for our second visit on Saturday and we were able to admire the wonderful scenery.
Thank you so much for all your time and assistance – much appreciated.
When we first decided we would like to buy a place in Turkey it seemed such a massive hill to climb. We looked around and luckily we saw your company advertised in the weekend paper. From that moment you made the experience a fantastic one. When we landed in Turkey in the early hours of the morning after being delayed 2 hours we wondered what we had let ourselves in for. We then came through the arrivals and met Pauline and Miranda who were stood patiently waiting for us with a big board with our names written on it and smiles to match. Bet they wish they had not bothered but not for a moment did they moan they just introduced themselves and made us feel welcome. We were dropped off at the apart hotel owned by Engin & Miranda and told they would meet us mid morning after a good sleep and a breakfast. The next morning when we sat down with them and showed them the apartments we wanted to see. I wont bore you with every detail of what they did for us because another tree would have to be felled but just to say that we had the most fantastic week and we bought the most beautiful apartment just outside Fethiye. They showed us so much patience and never moaned when we had to keep going backwards and forwards between the two properties could not decide between and then helped us through the whole buying process when we eventually made our decision. We never felt pressured into anything but they were always there to answer our questions. You promised that no pressure would be put on us by yourselves or by your agents in Turkey. I must admit I did not really believe this but you were right. Not that any pressure would have been needed with all the lovely properties we were shown around. We are leaving everything in their hands and signed up for their management of our apartment while we are in the UK and going back out in two weeks to check everything is done. They have also introduced us to Marion who will be furnishing our property for us. You name it and they have either done it for us or shown us how to do it ourselves. I would like to thank you and will be recommending to everyone we meet, your company. Thank you again from two very satisfied customers who have not only bought a property but made some wonderful friends into the bargain.
We recently came out on an inspection trip. Can we just say that the service we received from your Alanya Office and especially Lisa, was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and there was no pressure to purchase which made our trip relaxing and enjoyable. We did however purchase a duplex property 'off-plan' in Side and Spot Blue swiftly forwarded us a cheque for the re-imbursement of one flight as promised. We would not hesitate in recommending an inspection trip with Spot Blue. Mr & Mrs C - Shropshire
I would just like to say that the arrangements you made for us on our recent visit to Turkey were excellent. In particular the assistance & guidance we received from both Oscar & his brother Ati.They took their time to understand our requirements & then match them with some amazing properties. I appreciated the fact that at no time did they try to force a sale. Unfortunately our mind is set on the Kaya Valley & we are trying to negotiate a deal there. Once again, thank you.
just a quick note to say thank you for helping us to get an apartment in Didum Turkey.
The hospitality was excellent, we were shown all the Apartments within our price range and in a range of areas.
There was no pressure on us to buy property and we were also allowed to converse with other customers on a one to one basis.
The service was second to none, when it came to furnishing our apartment we were shown the best shops that gave the best value for money. After completing the deal we were allowed the extra days to get to know the area.
I will definitely recommend Spot Blue to all my family and friends.
Once again thanks a lot for all your help.
We would like to thank you and the staff in Hisaronu and Fethiye for helping us to find our dream villa. All the staff have been great and very helpful. I would certainly recommend your company to anybody who is hoping to live the dream!
I just wanted to thank-you for our recent very enjoyable and informative inspection visit. M and I were a little anxious before we arrived, not knowing what to expect and having never visited Turkey before but everything went very smoothly. We arrived at Antalya airport in the early hours of the morning and were met by 'Crazy' Ron who immediately put us at our ease, carried our suitcases and ensured that the hotel processed us quickly and efficiently. The next day and for the most part of our stay, we were collected by Bulent. They were delightful company and nothing was too much trouble for them. They escorted us to dozens of properties, fine tuning the list to fit our requirements as we went often patiently explaining things numerous times until we understood, (their English is excellent but on occasion we had information overload!) On no occasion did we feel pressurised, quite the opposite in fact. On the fourth day we decided to buy a 3 bed apartment in Side. Bulent assisted with the negotiations and helped us to obtain a very keen price and a couple of extras thrown in also. The procedure was made effortless by your wonderful staff in Turkey. I will be recommending you to all my friends and family and we hope to use your services again in the not too distant future. Please send my regards to our friends in Turkey.
I write this letter to thank you and your staff for the wonderful help and assistance that you have afforded Niki and Ion our recent trip to Turkey. When we decided to invest in a second property abroad we were inundated with choice and opportunity. Having decided on Turkey, we investigated numerous options and after meeting with you at the Property Exhibition at Excel earlier in the year, were impressed with your company ethics. After a subsequent telephone conversation with David, he advised me that the only way to make a decision was to go to Turkey and view the properties for ourselves. This was obviously the correct way to proceed. You cannot purchase something like this from the internet or from a glossy brochure. How right he was. Although be naturally sceptical we duly arrived in Antaya airport to be greeted by your representative and was then taken to our hotel. The next morning our apprehension disappeared immediately after meeting with Lisa and her staff, and the friendly treatment we received made our trip a delight. Her consideration, understanding and not forgetting her patience made our stay a very pleasant and rewarding experience. Along with her staff Ray, and the hotel manager and his wife, we feel that not only did we purchase a property exceeding our expectations but returned to the UK having made new friends in Turkey. You may use this letter to endorse your company and I have no reservations about recommending your services to anyone. Niki and I would like to thank you and your staff with all sincerity for your help and assistance and I trust that you will forward our gratitude and greetings to Lisa and her staff in Turkey.
Just a short note to say a very big thank you to yourself and Ray for all the care, and advice given to F and myself during our trip to Alanya. We feel we can get on with our day to day business here and leave everything in your very capable hands. We realise you and Ray have a product to sell but to us we feel that you have become our friends, and Frank as certainly recommended you to everyone he knows. see you soon!
"Many thanks to yourself and all the team in Alanya, We felt we were very well looked after and that although we will not be proceeding with a purchase at this time, we would be very happy to provide a recommendation to any of your future clients on the wonderful service offered. We have thought long and hard about the apartments and I know my husband thinks they look great, but the stairs will be a problem for our parents now and more so over the next few years- gorgeous as they are. ItÂ’s a real shame!"
Just a brief note to thank yourself and the Spot Blue team both here in the UK and over in Alanya for all your help in making our purchase of our apartment in Alanya a smooth and easy process. At the outset it seemed such a mammoth task we were taking on but you always have been available to assist us with any questions, for this, many thanks. Again, many thanks to all....
Just a thank you letter for all you have done to help us find our apartment in Turkey. Our stay at the hotel was excellent, we couldn't have been looked after better anywhere, Lisa and Ray are marvelous, nothing was too much trouble and they did everything possible to help us not only find the right apartment, but also the furniture etc for it. We feel we have made good friends there and we have been in contact over a couple of things arriving home. Just now looking forward to going there in January. Once again thank you for everything.
"Thank you for all your assistance this far with the purchase4 of my apartment in Alanya, Turkey. I have found your whole family a delight to buy property through your estate agency. At all times you have treated me with the utmost respect. I wish you lots of success in your business because this is what you all deserve as business people as well as a family. If I intend to buy another property in TurkeyI know whom to contact. Thank you once again for all your kindness, helpfulness and generous treatment of me as a customer."
"Dear Mr B, I want to to say thank you for facilitating me with all your caring attitude to purchase a property in Turkey. I can definitely say all throughout the purchase you are a trustworthy estate agent. I would like to praise all of your team members of your organisation. Every person in the hotel made my stay most enjoyable. At all times I came across staff that were able to take care of my needs and wants with utmost willingness. They have been polite and helpful. They have been friendly and warm- hearted; from the receptionist to the driver, the cook and the cleaner, they all had only one aim to make my life easy. However one person that stood out was L... L… worked very hard to listen to what I wanted. If it was not for L…, it would have been difficult for me to make up my mind so promptly!……Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
"We would like to thank you for your assistance with our property purchase in Turkey. Your staff, here in the UK and those in Alanya, were very helpful and friendly, putting no pressure on us to buy. Although we were in Turkey ‘on business’ we really enjoyed our short stay, and although it sounds a bit corny, we feel we made some new friends."
"I have just returned from a weeks viewing trip to Alanya with your company, and although I did not purchase a property myself, I cannot fault the treatment we received. The staff at the Turkish Property Office could not have been more helpful and friendly. They took us to view lots of properties within my budget, but unfortunately the one I really liked was over my budget so I am currently trying to find someone to come in with me. We were driven round and shown the area and nothing was too much trouble for them. I spoke to other English couples who had purchased a property and who were very pleased with the service they had received not only with buying the property, but also with getting furniture, right down to the curtains and light fittings, all of which were much cheaper than in the UK. While we were in the office, we spoke to two couples who bought properties last year and had just called in for a chat. This made me think that it wasnÂ’t the case that once you had bought something, the company didnÂ’t want to know anymore; obviously they are still willing to help out if needed. Also, absolutely no pressure was put on me to buy, which I must admit to being a bit worried about, but my fears were totally unfounded, I would certainly recommend anyone thinking about buying property in Turkey to use your company."
"We have just returned from our property viewing trip to Alanya, Turkey and write to tell you what a really good week weÂ’ve had. We found the Turkish people very hospitable and the staff in your local office there cheerful and friendly. The gentleman who showed us around was very helpful and supportive and not at all pushy- nothing was too much trouble. He even came to the hotel on Sunday morning when we were leaving to say goodbye to us even though it was his weekend off. We were shown all around the area, taken to some of the local attractions and were looked after very well. The hotel was superb. Altogether an excellent week and we look forward to returning in the New Year to see the progress of our newly acquired property."
"May I take this opportunity to express my thanks for your professional help and advice in all aspects with my purchase of property in Turkey. Your company made the whole process very easy and uncomplicated; with no sales pressure what so ever at any time when I spent time on the inspection and viewing trip in Turkey. Thanks once again"
"With absolutely no pressure the team out there made our stay enjoyable. The majority of people would be nervous but this was quickly dispelled. Their generosity and guidance made spending our money a pleasure. Once the decision was made the after sales team kicked in on the task of choosing furniture etc was made easy by his tireless efforts on our behalf, without which it would have been a mammoth task. We look forward to our return trip in March/April and in the meantime please pass our best wishes and thanks to them all."
"As you know we had a very successful trip to Turkey, we are very happy with our purchase, it was nice to met you after speaking to you several times on the telephone. Your team in Turkey were very helpful, they treated us very well. Bulent is a charming Turkish man he did us proud hopefully we will meet him again in the future. Alanya is a lovely place, itÂ’s views, shopping, beaches, restaurants, people, barÂ’s and of course not forgetting the sunshine! On our last day we were rushed with lotÂ’s to do, we were put with a man called Ray, he was lifesaver, he took us to furniture shops, curtain shops, the bank, and finally to our apartment. He is a great bloke and an asset to your company. We look forward to seeing them all again."
"My wife and I have just returned from a week in Alanya, property hunting, and yes, we were successful in our search to find a property of our choice. All of this is thanks to the team at Turkish Property Choice in the UK in getting us there, and the team in Turkey providing an excellent service. They showed us as much property as possible, but not in the sense that we were rushing from one area to another, it was very relaxed atmosphere, no pressure on selling, it was as though we were out with friends, they could not seem to do enough for us. The internet site can wet your appetite for a type of property but a visit to Turkey has so much more to offer. I would highly recommend Turkish Property Choice to anyone who is thinking of visiting Turkey with a view to buy. Once again, sincere thanks to all for the excellent service provided."
"Thank you for all your assistance in buying our property in Turkey. The whole process has so far gone very smoothly, and your help and advice has been much appreciated."
"I would like to say a big thank you to your company and for the way everything was handled during our visit. We were both very impressed with the service we received from everyone and at no time did we feel pressured into buying, which in fact was a deciding factor in our purchasing an apartment. It was my first visit to Turkey and I fell in love with the region and very much look forward to our visits in the future. Once again, thank you all very much for the help and advice we have received."
"My husband and I visited Alanya with the hope of buying a property there. We were met by one of BulentÂ’s team on arrival and taken to our hotel, which was of a good standard.We were impressed with BulentÂ’s manner and professionalism, and the other members of his team.As promised there was no pressure selling, for which we were grateful, all our questions were answered, and we were encouraged to view any apartment that we wished again. This all added to the ease of buying our own apartment.We will be recommending your property sales to friends and family in the future."
"WeÂ’d just like to say a massive thank you for all your help and support"
"Once again, we would like to say how much help we have had in making our purchase. The staff both in Surbiton and Alanya have been there for us whenever we have contacted them. It is one huge step for us to take made easier by the helpful response to our questions. We are very much looking forward to moving to River Residence early January 07."
"Following our recent visit to Alanya, Southern Turkey, I write to express our thanks to you and all your staff in Turkey for the kindness and attention shown to us during our stay. I will admit that, having never been on such an inspection trip visit before; I fully expected to be subjected to the ‘hard sell’ In the event we were treated to a relaxed viewing of properties of the type we had requested and within the budget we had specified, and all our queries were met with an honest and knowledgeable response. We are extremely satisfied and excited with the apartments we have chosen to buy, and will not hesitate to approach you should we, in the future, choose to purchase further properties in the area."
"We wish to take this opportunity of thanking your company for all the help, advice and hospitality yougave us while we were looking for a property in Turkey. Ray and Lisa could not have been more helpful and patient, ferrying us here and there, and helping us to purchase furniture and arrange for itÂ’s delivery prior to us returning in September when everything should be completed. We did not realise how quickly the purchase of a property could be negotiated."
"As you can imagine there has been little talk of anything other than Turkey and the new apartment. We’ve talked about the glorious weather, the place, the people but most of all we’ve spoken about how well we were treated by your good self and Howard and oh that lovely lady that answers the phone. You did absolutely everything to make our viewing trip one to remember. We were treated like royalty, thoroughly spoiled ( I loved every minute of it) from your guys booking our flights to organising our fabulous hotel, being chauffeured to and from the airport, not to mention all over Alanya. We must add while we were there, Bulent and his wonderful staff were fabulous, nothing was too much trouble. They took us out each day showing us stunning apartments in beautiful locations, they showed us sites, they winded and dined us, they even took us shopping for furniture ( it felt like Christmas and my birthday rolled into one!) We now count all of you as friends and speaking of friends since we returned our friends have bombarded us with questions i.e.: What’s the apartment like? Well what can we say – it’s got everything, swimming pool, fifty metres to the beach, fitness centre in the basement, two balconies, two bedrooms, laundry room, two bathrooms, and all amenities within walking distance How much did it cost? Would you believe it, Â£45,000, unbelievable I know I mean what can you get here for that? Do you plan to rent it out? Well due to great demand, we’ve decided to just rent it to friends and family, it would be a waste otherwise. We’ll just sit back and watch our Turkish bank account get fatter and fatter by the month. How did you find buying property in Turkey? Credit where it’s due, we didn’t really do anything. Why Turkey? It’s quite simple; we fell in love with the country and the wonderful people the first time we visited three years ago. The hospitality is second to none, and we just knew it was the place for us. So David, I think that about sums how we feel and how totally satisfied we’ve been with every aspect of your service, I would certainly recommend Turkish Property Choice to family, friends and colleagues alike."
