About us:

Spanish Property Choice are a family run business focused on traditional values & customer care. The Garner family and their real estate business have been Garner-ing TV Heaven as one of only 2 family estate agents, featured on Channel4 Sun Sea and Selling Houses, making them a house hold name not only in the UK but throughout Europe.

Stephen & Sharon have been selling & renting properties within the beautiful province of Costa Almeria for many years & are well known within the industry here for not only being pro-active, but honest, transparent & down to earth, however remaining professional at all times. "Our main objective has & will always be, to find our clients exactly what they are looking for" Sharon said. Now this may not be what they expected to find when they first make contact with us, but we go above & beyond to listen & learn more about each individuals requirements. People who follow the show, can see that what you get with Spanish Property Choice is all of the above and more.

As an independent real estate agent, we have one of the largest portfolios of both inland & coastal properties within the province of Costa Almeria, so finding a property is not normally an issue, however securing the right property, in the right location, for the right budget is what we strive to achieve for all of our clients.
Sun Sea and Selling Houses shown on prime time afternoon TV has opened a new world of opportunities for us as a business and has now secured our place as a leading agent within the Spanish market.

However more than that, is has highlighted that not all agents are sharks and only think of the commissions they will earn on the sale of a property. It shows we hope how hard we as an agent work for both our vendors and our purchasers to secure a dream home in the sun and not a potential nightmare!

As a business we are completely Decree 218 compliant and all of our properties are pre checked by an independent solicitor prior to marketing.

We afford you our clients complete consumer confidence by offering you a quality portfolio of fully legal Decree/Decreto 218 compliant properties. As a registered estate agent here in Andalucía, we have to comply with a law that was bought into force in 2005. So what is the Decree/Decreto 218? Well basically & with out going into great depth, the Junta de Andalucía enforced this Decree in 2005 to protect purchaser’s or Tennant’s interests when dealing with Real Estate. Anything we advertise has to be backed up by the official documentation as follows: • A copy of the Escritura (Title deeds) • An up to date Nota Simple (this shows if there are any encombrances) • Copies of all utility bills to prove it has mains water & electricity & not on builders supply • Copy of an IBI bill to prove that the council taxes are paid & the house is registered on the Cadastral • Copies of the vendors NIE numbers, residencia & passports • A DIA form which we have to complete on all properties, an Energy Performance Certificate and finally a licence of 1st Occupation or an AFO (A Fuera de Ordinacion) A document that regularises properties on rustic land or with a reform of 6 years or less.
We also have one of the largest rental divisions within our location with a wide range of inland and coastal properties for long term let of 3 months or more and holiday lets all compliant with the Tourism regulations (our holiday lets all have Tourism licence certificates).

"Testimonial To whom it may concern, dear prospective neighbours! Firstly well done and congratulations for arriving at the web-site or office of Spanish Property Choice. Our first introduction was care of A Place in the Sun following property within our price bracket for a number of months; as you do this you find the same property often for sale with several agents. We noted that not all agents provided the same level of information, detailed photos or information about the surrounding area so we were delighted to find this service from Spanish Property Choice. We first approached them via e-mail and requested information back the same way, I took the plunge and added a phone contact number but without exception the agents only contacted me by my preferred route. Their approach was friendly and sincere at every move, I gave them dates when we were visiting on holiday and enquired over viewing three property’s and any others they suggested in the same price / vicinity. We met at the office on the appointed day were given printouts of the property’s we wished to view and were driven to the location in style and comfort. There was no rush, no hard sell and we found the experience to be a pleasure and delight (as it should be!) We decided to spend a while wandering round the local area and so made our own way back (after a call to the sales office to verify the bus stop location and times) we pondered for a few days with no pressure other than one courtesy e-mail/text. We decided to view one apartment a second time and one other to compare by, again no fuss or pressure we were taken and looked around at our leisure, on return to the office we discussed the offer and purchase process and left with a wave and a promise to ponder over the weekend. We decided to return home and make our final decision form the cold wet comforts of home, one quick text and a follow up call and the offer was in, a brief barter over contents and a deal was done, deposit paid and agreed completion date of three months to allow vendor and ourselves time to move contents arrange bank, solicitors, NIE numbers etc. On the agreed day the sale was completed without hassle or pain; I know of all the horror stories and admittedly our journey is still at the start but what I can say is that the family and crew at Spanish Property Choice will remain our agents and friends and we are proud to be in their association. Good luck on your journey Richard & Jo"

"Just wanted to say a massive 'thank you' to you all at SPC for making what we had thought would be a really difficult procedure go really smoothly. We were made to feel totally at ease and that no question was a silly question, SPC held our hands for the time we were out there viewing, with personal introductions to our chosen bank, solicitor and currency exchange provider. It was a whirlwind 2 days but you (Emma) and your parents guided us through, we flew home still in shock at what had been achieved 48 hours. Don't think we'll ever have that same experience viewing property ever again, we laughed all day and never thought we would be your first clients filmed for the taster show you did for the TV show you guys are now stars of. Sharon listened to what we asked for on that first accidental meeting in the street and somehow made us look outside 'our box' and found us what was perfect! Must also mention the lovely Begoña who kept us entertained at the Notarè office, and explained and translated, with great humour! Can't wait to get out for our keys and look forward to many years of popping our heads round your door to say hello! Many many thanks. "

"We are very grateful to Spanish Property Choice; we looked at various estate agents without any luck. Suddenly we saw the sign and walked in tirelessly. They hunted down properties to our criteria and eventually found us the perfect place. The staff are lovely and easy to talk to, they are full of information about everything you want to know, they even gave us a post box number for all our mail, they also arranged a rental property for us while we waited for our place to be ready, Stress free and no worries, love them all, you will too, and so thank you Spanish Property Choice....... Well done !! "
