"After searching for our very own "Place in the Sun" from the comfort of home, we finally decided to take the plunge and ventured out to the Costa Del Sol. We contacted RJH Estates who were more than helpful in making all the arrangements, and after a number of viewings we found the perfect Holiday Home that we had always dreamt of! Richard was so helpful and attentive to our needs, he not only found us the perfect home, but introduced and recommended us to Solicitors to handle the purchase. We fully recommend Richard and RJH Estates"
"Our plans to retire and live in sunny Spain were finally realised after speaking with RJH Estates. Richard made us feel so relaxed for what was such an important decision and the whole process was surprisingly stress free from start to finish. We eventually found the Villa we always pictured in our minds, and plan to be drinking Sangria in the Sun for many years to come."
"We decided to invest in Spain after speaking with friends who had already bought an apartment from plan. Our ideas were to spend the Winter on holiday, and rent our property for the Summer months, after visiting numerous projects and going through plans we decided on a beachfront apartment and couldn't be more happy with our decision. RJH Estates guided us and entertained us through the duration, and would highly recommend."
