Thumbs up Looking for properties in Marbella

Hello,

Me and my family are looking to move to Marbella by the end of this year (if everything goes as planned in regards to the Covid-19 situation). We are browsing through different real estate agencies that could help to find a nice property for us. As I was doing my research, I found this agency:
<snip>

I really find their properties to be interesting and out of all the other real estate agencies I took a look at, this agency had the best designed properties in my opinion. Does anyone have any experience with <snip> and possibly could also assist me in finding the most family-friendly area to find the right home for us?

Why would I browse through different real estate agencies, or limit myself to one agency? You can just go on idealista https://www.idealista.com/en/venta-v...rbella-malaga/

No, he's a 'growth hacker/marketer' apparently (seems to me to be a newfangled way of saying spammer), working for the company in question.

What's so daft is that these people who try and sneakily advertise companies don't realise that all they do is end up on forum blacklists, and get the company penalised by Google.

I'd have done the same with this thread but people have taken the time to respond, so just removed the company name instead.

Hi Chris

I suppose this is a good learning lesson and never put all your trust into one estate agent. Look on idealista, fotocasa, habitaclia etc. and you will find all listings from various agents
Talk to different agents and get a feel how they operate and still always be cautious. Even if you connect with them and they speak your language, doesn't mean the property is legal.

Many thanks. Great to see you are on the ball.

Ah, they are daft, as if we can't do a quick IP check and see exactly where they are.
