I would have no hesitation in recommending Girasol Homes. My story was quite unique in terms of the circumstances that brought me to the decision of buying abroad. After losing my Mother I was left a sum of money to invest in a property.  The sum was not of a huge amount and therefore I knew that I was not going to tie myself up with another mortgage at my age. I had always dreamed of purchasing a property in Spain or France but made the decision to invest in Spain. My search began one evening over a weekend in 2019 and I had emailed to say that I was interested in a certain property. I wasn’t expecting an email back so soon but there it was from Lisa at Girasol homes. Lisa must have thought I was mad as I didn’t go and view the property. I think, to be honest, I was grieving and had so much going on that I just wanted it done. Any good estate agents are going to want you to view before purchasing and believe me Lisa did try but I was adamant I just wanted to buy and be done. I find myself very fortunate, not only to have found a lovely place in Spain in a remote tranquil lovely village, but also the support and advice that followed in the following months from Lisa. Lisa put me in touch with a Bank Manager in the village so as to open an account. She translated between myself and the Bank, so all the stress was taken out of this. I was sent regular updates, even when Lisa was supposed to be on her vacation. Anything I wanted to know, Lisa was there every step of the way. The day the sellers had to go to the Notary Lisa took them and throughout I was given up to date information as to what was going on. The day I went to Spain to get into my home, Lisa arranged to hand me the keys and again liaised with the Manager of the Bank for me to go and sign my documents. That wasn’t all! Lisa also recommended places that may be of interest and where to go. To be honest it seemed that it was a friend who was just helping me out and not an agent. Her vast knowledge of the surrounding area and who to liaise with was of enormous help and for this I will always be extremely grateful. I still keep in touch with Lisa and if I was to ever either want to move or look at another property I would not hesitate in going to Girasol homes.

Terry and Lisa have helped us with a house purchase and sale in Velez de Benaudalla. They are an excellent team. At the time of our initial purchase we had no knowledge of the process. Terry and Lisa guided us through. Their knowledge of the market and of Spanish property processes is second to none. The fact that both speak Spanish fluently helped no end. We have never worked with agents so committed to ensuring the property you buy is right for your needs. If you are serious about a house in Andalucia look no further than the Mottersheads and you will not be disappointed.

We bought our Spanish house through Lisa and Terry at Girasol Homes and couldn't be more satisfied. They helped us to plan our viewing visit and arranged discounted accommodation. When we found our chosen home, Lisa worked efficiently with our lawyer to ensure a swift purchase. Since then she has also helped us with finding craftsmen for our improvements. I have and will continue to recommend their services.

Coming to the property market in Spain for the first time and having no knowledge of Costa Blanca South, we contacted Girasol Homes to enquire about a property on their website. Rebecca then got in touch and set up some viewings for us. Before we flew out Mario also contacted us for more information about what type of property/location we would be interested in. We can't speak highly enough of Mario nothing was too much trouble for him. He got our property search absolutely spot-on, too time to show us the area and make all the necessary legal introductions for us. Thanks to Girasol and Mario, we have completed on our property purchase in Entre Naranjos. We can't recommend Girasol Homes highly enough, give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

My partner and I were recommended to Lisa and Terry at Girasol Homes Andalusia, we found them to be very helpful and accurate in their descriptions of properties we looked at in the area, they both have very good knowledge of the surrounding areas too, they are 100% trustworthy and we cannot give them a better review, I hope this helps all prospective buyers.

Hi Nigel, I would like to submit a written testimonial for the services recently provided by the excellent team of Lisa and Terry Mottershead :   Lisa and Terry Mottershead of Girasol Homes for your Spanish property purchase in the Granada region ( and wider)If you want a very professional, proactive and timely end to end service and assistance when searching and buying a property in the Granada region, then I have no hesitation in recommending the friendly and listening team of Lisa and Terry particularly for the following reasons:  - after initial discussions it became clear that they really understood my property requirements but also tested my thoughts by showing me a range of properties (all meeting the spec) to challenge me ensuring I found the right property for me   - nothing was too much trouble when viewing properties and this also involved objective advice on the areas when touring the areas with Lisa and Terry  - Lisa and Terry provided professional, friendly, knowledgeable and conscientious assistance and support step by step throughout the whole process up to completion of the sale as well as after sales service. This is illustrated by me finding my wonderful property in Alhama de Granada in February 2018 and completing the purchase 6 weeks later in March 2018 with no problems whatsoever. A seamless, no hassle process!  - Lisa and Terry took the stress out of the whole buying process and recommended independent lawyers, currency experts and surveyors. They succinctly outlined the whole buying process and replied to my emails quickly and effectively , often already having addressed and dealt with the point that I was raising!  - Lisa spent a whole morning with me after completion accompanying me to the local bank to set up an account as well as sorting out the transfer of utilities and even helped me with sourcing a Spanish mobile phone! They continue to provide ongoing support if I need it eg good local tradesmen   Overall, Lisa and Terry are a first rate property finder team who go above and beyond to provide a very professional and invaluable service.

In late 2017 my husband and I had an idea of purchasing a property in Spain. In early 2018 I was put in contact with Sharon Hulbert of Girasol Homes. In early 2019 we collected keys for our magnificent villa in Javea. All thanks to the hard work and effort Sharon put into us fulfilling our dream. Purchasing a property in a town you don’t know, in a country you’ve spent minimum time in, but on a continent that you love, can be somewhat overwhelming.  Sharon patiently walked us through every step, navigating and teaching us about property laws, educating us on taxation and its many forms in Spain and when needed, introduced us to people who would ultimately make up our ‘power team’ of woman who just got the job done. Sharon is kind-hearted and a pleasure to deal with. She has bent over backwards for us and we can not thank her enough. What has an incredibly difficult journey for others, has been a memorable and pleasurable one for us. I can not recommend Sharon and Girasol Homes enough. Tarynn & Gavin - Hong Kong

Good afternoon, We have recently sold a property in Alhama de Granada with Lisa Mottershead's help. In the past we have had very mixed experiences with estate agents but Lisa has been exceptional! From the beginning of the selling process she proactively kept us in the picture, she returned our calls promptly and guided us all the way. Very professional with a friendly touch !! Nothing was too much trouble even after the sale was completed.We would be grateful if you would give Lisa this feedback - she is a gem!! Regards, Viv and Mike Moore

We purchased a home in Alhama de Granada with the able assistance of Lisa and Terry. Lisa researched and lined up the itinerary, and Terry showed us around. Terry devoted the best part of three entire days with us, showing us several properties, some in Alhama de granada, others in villages and towns nearby. The selection covered a wide range of sizes and locations, all within the budget we had provided at the inception of our search. As an added service, Lisa lined us up with an attentive and affordable attorney in Granada who helped us with all documentation. We were thoroughly pleased with Lisa and Terry's personable and professional help, and, a year later, we love our little house!
