  • This initial search provides the best 10-15 homes that fit your needs
  • We will call you back to detail your requirements and explain how we do the search

3 - Use our property finder service to find your home
  • We carry out an ongoing search to send you the best properties matching your needs, so you can establish a shortlist of houses that you would like to visit
  • Then either we pre-visit houses and send you photos/videos of these or organize the visits to fit your schedule when you come to the region

  • All we need to carry out this service is a "search mandate", so we become your single point of contact and you no longer need to contact multiple agencies
  • Our fees
  • There is no cost or engagement for the initial search
  • For the ongoing search, our fees are covered by a commission split if you buy through an agency (so no extra cost), and if you buy from a private owner directly, our fee is 2% of the sale price, which is competitive compared with other property finders
