We are thrilled with the property we purchased and grateful to Paco for leading us to it. We unequivocally recommend "PacoHouse.com" to buyers looking for properties in Murcia".
We love the house what we purchased at Purias.
"Nicola & Ian, buyers from the UK. November 2019.
"Having recently completed our purchase, for anyone wanting to buy or sell I would 100% recommend the services of Paco.
He is thoroughly professional and friendly and his English is perfect. Communication by Whatsapp was always prompt and he would always try to answer or resolve the endless queries and issues we sent him! His knowledge of good local tradesmen, solicitors, surveyors ect was a great help. Even at the Notary (an even in itself) his interpreting skills were invaluable for keeping us abreast of what was happening. Post completion he even met us at the local town hall to help switch the utility contracts and council tax. Without his assistance with that it would have been a much more stressful and complicated process.
In short, trust in Paco to assist you in either the selling or buying of your property
Nicola & Ian"
"Richard & Jennie, buyers from the UK. September 2019.
"Just a few words Paco as way of thanks for your help, service, professionalism and understanding throughout our recent buying adventure in Spain. Your patience, knowledge and understanding eased us through the process in a pleasant and efficient manor. Your knowledge is second to none and your support and understanding a pleasure to be involved with, your patience whilst answering our many stupid questions will never be forgotten, your after sales service is outstanding and we could never have made the progress we achieved without your guiding hand.
We count ourselves lucky to have found you, wish you all the best for the future and you and the family are welcome anytime at our new Spanish home.
Thank you is not enough, we are forever in your debt and please just shout if we can ever help you with anything.
Richard and Jennie"
"Paula & Keith McNab, buyers from USA. July 2019.
"We recently relocated from the USA to Spain. We looked for the right home for over a year and visited Spain twice to view houses. We met several estate agents and we met Paco when we started looking in the Lorca area. We have found him to be totally professional, honest and a very genuine person. He is an excellent agent who gets the job done quickly and efficiently. Even after we moved in he called by to check we were settled. He also helped us with appointments and paperwork at the local town hall. All above and beyond what an agent is expected to do. We feel very lucky to have had Paco help us in the purchase of our new home and would recommend his services to anyone buying or selling in this area. You won’t find a better agent.
Thanks very much Paco!
Paula & Keith McNab"
"Lyndon & Sheena, buyers from the UK. June 2019.
"Paco has been a Godsend to us not only finding our dream home, he listened to our wish list and and unlike some of the other estate agents we spoke with, he only took us to view properties that met our criteria, we hit the jackpot on the third house. He also helped us to understand the complexities of the Spanish municipal systems, he has accompanied us to various important meetings and, through his endless contacts, smoothed what would otherwise have been a very bumpy road for non Spanish speakers.
His communication's were excellent and very responsive, phone, email and WhatsApp.
Obviously we have no hesitation in recommending Paco, we know that going the "extra mile" is a cliché but there is no other way to describe it.
Thank you Paco"
"Francisca & Jeroen, buyers from Netherlands. May 2019.
We are really really satisfied with the way you helped us, how you answered all our questions, that you were so patient and friendly. We were a bit cautious because of earlier experiences with another real estate agent but we found quickly that we could trust you. And that's very important.
So we would fully recommend you to any interested buyer.
met vriendelijke groet,
drs Jeroen J. Hilak"
"Johan and Ina, buyers from the Netherlands. April 2019"
We are so happy now you have helped us to find a new home/B&B, a new future!
When we sold our house in the Netherlands in November 2018, our journey to find a new house started.
We travelled through Spain, looked at properties in Cathalonia and Andalucia, and met several real estate agents.
In Vélez-Rubio we met you Paco. And we are so glad we did!
Paco, you are different from the other agents. We found out that you are a friendly, honest, helpful and very thoughtfull person.
We drove around in your car and youtold us about life in Spain, showed us the houses and the beautiful surroundings.
The buying process didn't go smoothly, but you stayed calm and when there were issues you helped to resolve them.
We stayed in touch through e-mail and mobile phone, and when we had a question you answered right away.
You helped us with the last check of the house which was a lot of work and the connection of the water.
Thank you Paco for your help! We appreciate everything you have done for us and recommend you to everyone who is looking to buy property in Spain!
Johan and Ina"
"David & Joan, sellers from Lorca (Murcia). August 2018"
"Paco came to us highly recommended and we were not disappointed. He was professional, friendly and supportive throughout the sale of our house. His knowledge of the Spanish systems was invaluable and ensured that everything ran smoothly.
Paco goes above and beyond what you would expect from an estate agent and keeps you informed at every stage. If you only use one estate agent then it has to be Paco."
Joan and David Sheldon
"Simon & Caroline, buyers from the UK. August 2018"
"We highly recommend the services of Paco, he made the buying of our property very easy and helped us trough the process. In our opinion he went above and beyond even being our translator when we signed the papers for the house at the notary. After we had moved into our house he continued to help us with several matters all of which was no problem at all to him. On one occasion he called in when passing to check that we had settled into our new home. Paco is a genuinely nice guy whom we wouldn't hesitate to use again should we need his services."
Simon and Caroline
"Steve & Pamela, buyers from the UK. August 2018"
"We recently completed the purchase of our property through Pacohouse Estate Agent. We found Paco to be very professional with good communication skills, his English and his understanding of English is excellent. He is locally based, so he can source or recommend local professionals and tradesmen, such as solicitors, architects, builders etc.
We had a complicated purchase due to the owner of the property being deceased, Paco helped and guided us through the whole process with great patience and professionalism.
We would strongly recommend anybody buying or selling in the area to use PacoHouse Estate Agency."
Steve & Pamela
"Debbie & Mark, buyers from the UK. July 2018"
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Paco, for the service we received when viewing properties.
You were honest, thoughtful, listened to what we wanted and then suggested properties based on our needs.
Nothing was too much trouble, and even turned up when we moved in with a gift a lovely touch.
We would recommend Paco of PacoHouse.com 100% "
Debbie & Mark
"Mary & Eric, sellers from Velez-Rubio (Almeria). May 2018"
We just wanted to say thank you again for coming with us this morning to the Notary and all that you have done for us over the years. We will do everything we can to promote your agency as we can recommend you so highly.
Best of wishes to you and your family.
Mary and Eric Brown ".
"Lorna & Steve, buyers from the UK. April 2018"
"House buying is always a daunting prospect, no matter how many times you have done it. However, this time was made much easier by the invaluable help given by Paco Teruel of Paco House Estate Agents in Murcia Region.
Paco not only quickly understood exactly the type and size of property we were looking for but helped us out in many other ways, including going with us to the local town hall architects department to investigate the possibility of carrying out building work at one possible location. He has also put us in contact with a very competent builder who is about to begin work on our new home.
Paco’s excellent command of English certainly added to the smoothness of our experience.
Thanks Paco, we couldn’t have done it without you."
Lorna & Steve.
"Malcolm & Kathy, buyers from the UK. December 2017"
"Paco House, led by Paco Teruel, has to be one of the best property specialists around. Not just an agent, but someone who understands the region of Murcia and Lorca in particular. An excellent linguist and highly personal service allowed us to find and negotiate for our dream home in Spain.
What a service and thank you Paco!".
Malcolm & Kathy
"Andy & Eva Hood, buyers from the UK. November 2017"
"Because of previous experiences we initially thought of Paco as simply another Estate Agent but how pleasantly surprised we were with his "personal" services in all regards to dealing with every hurdle that came our way.
We are so impressed with his professionalism, patience, knowledge and his attitude to making time to make everything flow and not become a problem.
Thank you Paco and we will surely recommend your services to everyone".
Andy & Eva
"Lisa & Rob, buyers from the UK. June 2017"
We are writing to say how pleased we were with PacoHouse services. Paco, himself was extremely helpful in our move to Spain. It was such an easy transition and this was due to the help we received from Him.
Paco, helped us to get an English speaking solicitor and also helped with currency exchange. All the way through our purchase Paco was on the end of the phone to answer any queries that we had.
We can't thank you enough Paco. We hope to see you soon.
Lisa & Rob,
"Christian Ribalta, seller from Velez-Rubio (Almeria). June 2017"
J’ai acheté un cortijo en 2014 avec la société PacoHouse en Andalousie.
J’ai apprécié le professionnalisme de Paco et surtout sa disponibilité et son écoute.
Alors quand en 2017 je décide de vendre le cortijo c’est donc à l’agence PacoHouse que je confis la vente. En trois mois le cortijo est vendu, J’ai retrouvé le même professionnalisme et la même efficacité. Paco connaît très bien le marché sur son secteur, je recommande sans hésiter cette agence.
"Bénédicte (France) & Bernd (Germany). Buyers. May 2017"
We had our first contact I think in the end of January and visited the house in the middle of March. And finally began to buy our house it in the middle of May.
In the time in between we communicated through mails (writing) with the real estate agent Paco Teruel in English as we (me and my boyfriend) are French and German.
I first was very impressed of his perfect English writing.
We also appreciated to be truly considered as possible clients but also simply as human being. We had the feeling to be able to ask him any questions about our matters: the house or anything doing with the buying or also the living there. Paco would try to find the right answer without transforming it to please us or anyone. He would rather look for the truth, for example asking the owner giving further our questions and thus giving us back their replies, or asking other people there (ex. the Notary).
Paco gave us even informations about plants, about climate, about inhabitants habits. We had really the feeling to be able to ask him anything.
And if he wouldn't know, he would just tell us that he wouldn't know.
He also introduced us a French Mann living there (a very valuable and friendly person).
If Paco can write and speak a real perfect English as if he would be a real English man, he is also a real Spanish man and like many other Spanish people in this area, he was somehow ready to move heaven and earth to help us further.
We haven't been living here in the South for long time now, anyway we are very happy to be here and yes very thankful to Paco for having been our agent as a sincere and reliable advisor, attender and helper in our buying.
We can only recommend his services for people coming from abroad (and also to Spanish people!) to buy a property here and also to sell theirs - because we know that he is also a very good agent as well in that job.
Mr Paco Teruel: thank you very much indeed from us, Bénédicte (FR) and Bernd (DE)
"Chris & Linda Rydel, buyers from the UK. March 2017"
Over the years we have purchased houses, businesses and land in the UK, Cyprus and Spain and in all honesty we have never met an estate agent who is more professional, trustworthy, friendly, caring and genuine person as Paco.
If there is anyone contemplating buying property or land in Paco’s part of Spain – never think twice and don’t waste your time dealing with anyone else.
We were in Spain Christmas 2016 to look at several houses. From the initial viewings to the final signing of contracts in March Paco was so helpful. He helped us to get the NIE numbers with no additional charges, unlike British agents who wanted to charge as much as one hundred Euros.He introduced us to a bank where we opened an account. He made an appointment with a first class solicitor and he was always with us to translate where necessary on each occasion. He even helped us get the paperwork to purchase a car.
Every testimonial on Paco House website is completely true. Other people have said in their testimonials that Paco helps them beyond the house purchase and we would agree wholeheartedly with this.
For the first in our lives we like, trust and recommend an estate agent 100%.
Thank you Paco for everything and hope we will always know you as a friend.
Chris & Linda
"David & Patricia Coe, buyers from the UK. December 2016"
We contacted Paco, after seeing a property, listed on the internet, from the first telephone contact, we found him to be a revelation, he is polite, professional, and completely reliable, all the attributes you hope for in an estate agent, and he is also completely honest and trustworthy.
We were able to complete the purchase of our place in the sun, with ease, and Paco was there for us all the way. He is still in contact with us, to ensure that we are settling in, and if we need help with anything, he is always available.
We would recommend his company to anyone who is thinking of buying a property in Spain.
Thanks for everything.
David & Patricia
"Gilberte and Marc, buyers from Belgium. November 2016"
We pluisden zelf de regio uit en kwamen tot de bevinding dat Pacohouse het meest complete aanbod in zijn portefeuille had.
Tijdens bezoek aan kennissen vroegen we een aantal locaties te kunnen bezichtigen en Pacohouse regelde dit telkens op de momenten dat wij beschikbaar waren. Opvallend aan de stijl van Pacohouse is dat hij je zelf je beeld laat vormen zonder dat je het gevoel hebt dat men je wil overtuigen om te kopen.
Uiteraard was hij er om vakkundig te antwoorden op vragen maar verder verliepen onze bezoeken zeer rustig en ongedwongen.
Paco is een vakman en ieders vertrouwen waard.
"Laura & Shane, buyers from the UK. October 2016"
From the outset Paco was friendly and helpful, always replied promptly to messages and calls. Havind dealt with English run estate agents we actually felt more comfortable with Paco!
The fact that he speaks good English was a bonus as otherwise things can sometimes get 'lost in translation'.
His website and app are regularly updated and he is able to provide background information regarding a property, and if he doesn't know he will find out.
He seems adept at managing vendor expectations and bringing realism to their prices and acts as a valuable intermediary during negotiations.
We would not hesitate to recommend him. Thank you Paco! You have been so very helpful regarding our house purchase and we ware very grateful.
Thanks again for all your help and particularly your patience.
Laura & Shane
"Paul & Kate, buyers from the UK. August 2016"
Firstly, as an estate agent, Paco has been a great help to us. Over two separate visits he showed us 11 different properties, and was at all times knowledgeable about the properties themselves and their local area. He was never pushy, always listened to our thoughts and questions, and was prompt to respond to follow up e-mails.
More importantly, Paco showed and continues to show immense professionalism in going far beyond the remit of an estate agent. We employed a solicitor of our own choosing to complete the legal process of the purchase, only to find that the solicitor’s own professionalism was questionable. Paco stepped in to alert us of trouble that he saw coming, and then made great efforts to work with us to mitigate the problems. Over a testing few days, Paco’s assistance was invaluable.
Finally, Paco continues to be involved with us and will hopefully remain a good friend in the future. The best relationships are built over a long term, and we think Paco completely subscribes to that.
"Martin, buyer from the UK. July 2016"
What can I say about Pacohouse? Well, having now bought two houses through Pacohouse I can say this:
Very helpful, honest, and always on time! Beyond this Paco has a great local knowledge of the local area, as a native, and he is ever willing to assist. Trustworthy and reliable, with good spoken English, Paco is easy to contact by message/mail and he always replies.
"John & Skeeter, buyers from the Netherlands. June 2016"
Paco took the time to explain every aspect of buying property in Spain. Even after the purchase of our lovely home in Spain he took the time to help us with all kind of information regarding legislations when buying property in Spain.
He is always willing to help and doesn't mind showing you a property more than once. Paco is honest and really listens to what you are looking for in a home and does his utmost to meet your wishes therefore fulfilling your dream of having a home in Spain. Paco's English is outstanding. Paco has many contacts which can help you with other services regarding purchasing a house.
We absolutely would recommend his services.
John and Skeeter de Deugd
"Sara & George, buyers from the UK. June 2016"
We would like to thank Paco House for their excellent service and support.
We thought that relocating to another country was going to be rather daunting, however, we found that after dealing with Paco the house searching/buying process was stress free. Paco was very informative and extremely patient. He spoke excellent English which gave us that extra bit of reassurance as we didn't speak a word of Spanish. Paco exceeded all expectations of how helpful anyone could possibly be.
We would highly recommend Paco House to anyone looking to buy abroad.
Thanks again, Sara & George
"Fiona & Mark, buyers from the UK. June 2016"
Having met Paco around 18 months ago he has been very professional in our quest to find the perfect home. At no time was he pushy or sending us e mails of inappropriate houses.
On meeting him he was of course on time and a really pleasant man. We spent the day looking at prospective houses and enjoying a tapas lunch.
We next met up with Paco in March this year and we bought our dream home from him. Throughout the buying process he kept us up to date with all processes and liaised with our solicitor.
Our solicitor had never met Paco previously and has remarked that he is the most professional of estate agents and very diligent.
The purchase went through without any hiccups due to Paco having all the correct and legal paperwork .
We would strongly recommend his services when buying or selling a property.
You won't find anyone better in our view.
Fiona and Mark
"Sarah Phillips, buyer from the UK. April 2016"
We'd never been to Spain and certainly never contemplated buying a holiday home there until December 2015. We didn't even know the areas to look. All I knew was that if we were to buy in Spain we didn't want a tourist area we wanted to experience Spain . We wanted a view, didn't want to be overlooked and wanted to be near my typically white washed village. We were bombarded with details from various estate agents who very obviously had not listened to my requests.
We flew out in January and met up with Paco of Pacohouse estate agents and guess what he found me my white washed village and the perfect area on our very first trip. Our second trip he found us the perfect house with all our requirements and more.
You hear horror stories about Spain and there are plenty of websites ready to give you advice which I took on board until I met Paco and that all went out the window. I asked him about a solicitor who was equally fab. In a nut shell if you use Paco he will advise you about whatever you want to know. Nothing was too much trouble and he spent as much time with you as you needed. He drove us around the area and there is nothing about his area and his properties that he doesn't know.
We started looking in December, flew out in January for the first time and completed in mid April. I can't believe how easy it all was thanks to Paco and the help and advise that he gave us. We almost didn't have to do anything . Although we now have our dream property I still contact Paco if I need anything such as builders, etc. My simple peace of advice is if you want to buy in Paco's part of Spain don't use anybody else except Paco, and it is perfectly safe to take his recommendation on a solicitor. Happy house hunting.
"Annelies & Gerard, buyers from Netherlands. January 2016"
In mei 2015 hebben we een aantal huizen bezichtigd met PacoHouse. We werden erg goed begeleid en tegelijkertijd ook vrijgelaten om zelf de huizen goed te bezichtigen. De informatieverstrekking was uitstekend en de begeleiding van de uiteindelijke koop eveneens. Bij de overdracht begin 2016 heeft PacoHouse ook netjes de contractovergang van water, energie en wifi geregeld. PacoHouse neemt je een hoop uit handen wat wij als erg plezierig hebben ervaren. Ook na de overdracht staat PacoHouse nog to je beschikking om vragen die je hebt te beantwoorden. Prima service en klantgerichtheid dus!
Annelies van den Berg
"Gillian Stewart & Alan, buyers from UK. November 2015"
We purchased our Spanish villa through PacoHouse.com in November 2015. As UK buyers, we expected this process to be stressful as our experiences of estate agents in the UK had been challenging. Paco was completely different from the start. The entire process from viewing, negotiating and completing our purchase was made simpler by having a friendly and professional person available to help and advise with every aspect from helping out when the solicitors' agents lost the keys in transit to advising of good places to look for furniture and places to visit locally. He even chased up a delivery of kitchen appliances for us and put us in contact with our new neighbours in Spain long before we could get out to meet them.
I cannot recommend Paco highly enough. We are proud to own a fabulous property and very happy that Paco is on hand for anything that comes up.
All this and we were the purchasers!
Highly recommended, professional, ethical and reliable estate agent and person.
Many thanks, Paco!
"Stijn, buyer from Belgium. November 2015"
Vooreerst wil ik PACO HOUSE bedanken voor de zeer goede dienstverlening, namelijk het verlenen van correcte en volledige informatie en de vriendelijke en rustige benadering.
Zijn manier van werken is goed, zowel voor verkoper als koper.
Ik heb de samenwerking als zeer positief ervaren.
"Laurence & Tracey, sellers from the area of Lorca. November 2015"
"We originally contacted Paco on the recommendation of friends who had been very satisfied with the services of Paco House previously. From the beginning of our dealings together, Paco was always very pro-active which is exactly what you want from somebody marketing your property for sale. He was also very honest and realistic in terms of the advice and information that he provided throughout the process. As soon as we were ready to proceed, Paco had organised the photos and the wording for the website, and we could not have been more pleased with the quality of the presentation of our property. In fact, within only a matter of weeks we had accepted an offer (and we had been expecting the sale to take months, if not years, in the current market place!).
Not only did Paco help us sell in double-quick time, but he helped us right through to completion liaising with lawyers, architects and even tax officials on our behalf. Finally, he took over the potentially time-consuming job of transferring electricity, water and internet contracts to the purchasers as well for us.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Paco House to any potential buyer or seller.
¡Muchísimas gracias Paco!"
"Irene & Stan Collins, sellers from Lorca. July 2015"
Thank you so much for all you have done for us.
Wishing you all the best.
Irene & Stan
"Michael Howard, buyer from UK. April 2015"
My daughter has lived in Spain for 12 years and in this time has not come across a more prompt, efficient, courteous and punctual Spanish man. Paco of Paco House is all of this, he has made buying a house in Spain for me a very smooth process, he made sure that all paperwork (escritura, habitational licence, IBI, electric and water) was correct and up-to-date. He involved other parties to ensure all problems were eliminated on the day of signing the contracts and transferring the property into my name, he also accompanied my daughter to the utility offices to organise the transfer of the contracts. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in his area. The only thing I would say to Paco is, never presume you know what you think the customer wants, they might surprise you. I did! Thank you Paco, for everything.
Regards, Michael Howard
"Mark Blake, buyer from UK. March 2015"
The last of the honest estate agents, which is how we found PacoHouse. From start to finish Paco could have not been more helpful. We had been looking for a home and Paco found it for us, guided us through the entire process and made it easy. He has and did go why beyond what you would expect an estate agent to do. I cannot recommend them highly enough and would buy another house through them and so should you. Even after buying the house Paco has still not stopped helping us and we could not have done this without him. (Speaks great English too). A huge thanks to you and your company.
"Lesley & Peter Fiorentini, sellers from Lorca. October 2014"
If you are looking to sell your property and specially if your are not Spanish we can thoroughly recommend Paco House.
Paco, the owner, goes the extra mile when he is engaged in selling the property, from a very comprehensive website to helping the client with all the awkward things that go with selling in Spain.
Before he uploads the property onto his website he makes sure everything is in place for the client to be able to sell the property.
Title deeds, energy certificate, town hall paperwork, utilities, etc. etc. are all checked so there are no problems later down the line.
Unheard of in Spain our property was sold within three weeks and total completion was three and a half months, whereas initially we thought it would take up two years.
Exceptional service from a very experienced agent.
Lesley & Peter Fiorentini, Lorca (Murcia)
"Chris & Cheryl Conner, buyers from UK. October 2014"
Just a short note to say that we have used the services at Paco House & been very pleased from start to finish. We were lucky to locate Paco on the internet.
It is always with some trepidation that you embark on a foreign house purchase & having someone trustworthy & honest who can guide you through the process is essential to peace of mind. Paco is this person & his after sales service is excellent with help connecting services & utilities which makes the whole process that much easier.
He also has great connections to other professionals who guided us in our purchase which ultimately meant a timely & happy conclusion.
I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Chris & Cheryl Conner
"Gina G & Richard C, buyers from UK. September 2014"
We spent many months seeking the perfect property in Spain and met many estate agents, most of them willing to waste our time and try to convince us that the most unsuitable property was ideal. PacoHouse was different. Paco listened to us and only showed us properties that met our criteria. He pointed out issues with the property we wanted which meant we had all the information we needed and were more confident in our purchase.
If you are looking for an estate agent with integrity, patience and professionalism, look no further than PacoHouse.
"Lou Looymans & Géry Van Helleputte, buyers from Belgium. September 2014"
What started as a winter holiday on the Costa Blanca resulted only 4 months later in buying a house in the region of Velez Rubio. Through Paco House!
We were so impressed by the natural surroundings, space and quiet of the area but also challenged by the welcoming and friendly attitude in the local towns, villages, shops, bars. Just an effort of 2 words of Spanish and the doors open wide...
Talking to people who made a move to this area, convinced us taking a closer view on houses on the market.
A neighbour of them was selling and the house was on the Pacohouse site. And that's how we got in touch with Paco!!!
We were impressed by the selection but most of all by the circumstantial description and details on the site. And of course we were wondering if reality would match the description...
From Belgium we screened on matching priorities. A simple mail and phone call made Paco send us a list of houses. He even gave us tips on where to stay.
So we booked a flight and the very next day we visited 8 houses. All very well organised! And it was immediately obvious that Paco knew the houses, had taken his time with the owners and that reality and the information on the site were matching as well.
I confess we had started out with reluctancy on estate agents since experience of many others before us stated quite some distressing events.
With Paco everything went smooth: he is hard working, intelligent, professionaly well equipped and proud and has the skill of organisation. On the basis of this all certainly is his human understanding and warmth, beeing a keen listener and having pleasure in making people satisfied.
And one of the most important things for a newcomer here: Paco doesn't stop assisting after the sale. Whatever practical or other question, he's keen to give you the best of advice since he knows local services and the local professionals.
We met Paco as an estate agent and we were enriched with a dear friend. And we were not the only ones: we had a lovely day out in Lorca with him and his family together with other friends, former clients...
We fell in love with the Lorca area: the scenery, the people, still unspoilt and away from cheap tourism. Living overhere felt like a dream. We got a tip to contact Pacohouse: "Very reliable, very kind and professional.
Back in Belgium we spent many hours on the internet with every possible estate agent in the Lorca-Velez Rubio area. We finally always came back to what was on offer on the site of Pacohouse: more detailed information and full screen pictures.
One particular house got our attention but we were a bit worried the pictures might be outdated and not represent the actual state of the house. Furthermore we still got other questions. Only one call and Paco provided us with updated pictures and answered all our questions in fluent English. He even sent us a list of houses that might interest us as well.
The contacts with Paco by phone and by mail convinced us to fly out to Spain. On our request, Paco suggested a starting B&B near a house we wanted to visit, recently sold by him to a French couple. And they were positively exited about their experiences with Paco.
In one day we visited eight houses. He not only knew the houses on a technical level but also knew the "petite histoire”. And although time was running short - eight houses on one day is a lot to absorb - Paco kept patient and didn’t stress for a moment.
The experiences that one day made us forget about alternative estate agents and we decided rather promptly on one of Paco’s offers…
Came the moment of settling papers and flying back to Belgium, pondering whether we made the right decision… After all all our savings were at stake…
But Paco was always available, listening carefully to our worries and trying his utmost best to answer questions on technical matters, legal matters, financial matters and on emotions involved with our decision to eventually start a new life in Spain..
Two months later, notary dealt with, we are bit by bit settling down.
And we already made friends: French, Dutch, Belgian, English, Spanish and as it turned out most are friends of Paco as well.
"Elizabeth & Peter Young, sellers from the area of Lorca. June 2014"
We used Paco of Pacohouse to market our property.
Paco provided us with excellent service both before and during the actual sale of the property.
He was always available to answer our questions and always willing to meet us in order to discuss any problems or queries we might have.
The potential purchasers who Paco accompanied to view had all been vetted and were serious about buying a property similar to ours.
We also never felt pressurised into agreeing a sale. Paco speaks very good english, is honest and has a very pleasant approachable
We have no problems in recommending him to anybody who wishes to sell their property.
Elizabeth and Peter Young
"Roland & Beverley Maasik, buyers from UK. June 2014"
Having spent time researching and viewing properties across Southern Spain looking for our retirement home, and having dealt with any number of Spanish Agents along the way, I can only have praise for PacoHouse Estate Agents and for the professionalism and attention to detail shown. The whole process, from initial visit to liaising between ourselves and sellers, and managing the completion process was handled in such a way to keep us informed and confident at all times.
I feel certain that, should the occasion arise, we would use Paco and his team again."
"Familia Delgado Barranco, Lorca (Spain). February 2014"
Hay veces que los sueños se convierten en realidad, aunque esto sólo es posible con trabajo, suerte y la existencia de las personas adecuadas.
Conseguir una casa en el campo, dentro de nuestras posibilidades, era una idea que llevábamos mucho tiempo gestando. En la búsqueda de nuestro nuevo hogar conocimos a Paco Teruel de PacoHouse inmobiliaria, nos ayudó y nos asesoró sobre las características del mercado, nos presentó aquellas personas que podrían ayudarnos en la resolución de nuestros problemas y se convirtió en la persona en la que confiamos para que nuestros sueños se realizasen. Y aunque la compra de la casa suponía una serie de problemas administrativos, debido a la diferente nacionalidad de los propietarios, la operación de compraventa se realizo sin ningún problema.
Estamos contentos con la compra y disfrutamos de nuestro nuevo hogar.

"Lynette & Martin Carter, buyers from Wales (UK). February 2014"
We were searching for the right Spanish property for many years. We dealt with many estate agents during that time. We were at the point of giving up when we came across Pacohouse.
As soon as we listed our criteria on the website, we were flooded with the right kind of properties, we knew we were on the right track. Paco takes pleasure out of getting it right for his clients. He has a very refreshing approach to selling houses, he is intuitive and offers excellent support, both pre and post sale.
Thanks to Paco, we now have our beautiful Spanish holiday home.

"Mr & Mrs. Josef & Noreen Bereza, buyers from Lincs, England. November 2013"
From our very first contact by email with Paco of Pacohouse Estate Agent, we felt from the start we were dealing with a professional who not only was excellent at his job but with a great understanding what we needed in a property.
He helped us all the way from the pick up from the airport, to our hotel and with the escorted viewings, to solicitor and Notary in fact Paco is still helping us today and we have been in Spain since Jan 2014, we look on him as a good friend and we can ring him for advice and he always helps us going beyond what you would expect from an estate agent.
Pacohouse only will deal and sell properties which are fully legal which gave us peace of mind, and he kept in touch with us all the way through the purchase.
We can highly recommend him to everyone as he was the best, very professional.
"George & Sheela Visser, buyers from Netherlands. July 2013"
In July 2013, we came across the house in which we now very much enjoy our stay in Spain.
The sign on the fence said "PACOHOUSE” with URL and phone number.
We decided to phone and spoke to a very nice man, speaking fluently English.
After a few important questions, mainly about possibilities of finance we decided to meet.
The next day we met Paco Teruel, he invited us to see some other houses in the neighbourhood, to give us a good idea on location, comfort and of course prices.
He also informed us on the various regulations that occur when buying a Spanish property;
we read on the internet that "gestors” lawyers and solicitors where necessary in order to get the right papers.
Apart from that the connection of electricity and water seems to be quite a hassle for foreigners, and what’s more and important getting a NIE number.
After waiting a couple of weeks whilst getting the buying deal closed and all financial issues done, the job of a broker normally is done.
However not with Paco, he arranged for us getting a NIE number, a Lawyer speaking our language, and all the necessary paperwork for water and electricity.In fact he arranged everything for us.
As the property needed some maintenance he also introduced to 2 companies helping us out with that, with one we still work very pleasantly.
In general: We advise all our friends and everybody who have the intention to buy a property in Spain to work with Paco.
For us he is the best and honest broker and up until now still available (without any costs) to help us out.
