" Two years ago we provided Bob and Laurian with a long wish list of what we wanted for our new home and after spending almost a year working with other agents and looking at over 50 properties we were thrilled when Blue Ocean Estates showed us our current home after viewing only five properties with them. Their knowledge of the area we chose was excellent and they could not have been more helpful in working through the Spanish conveyancing process. We also particularly liked the additional information they provide on their website, such as the room sizes and the numerous photos. We our happy to recommend them as you will not waste time looking at properties that do not meet your criteria! "
" Very happy with Blue Ocean they sold our house with no problems at all. "
" Laurian and Bob were efficient and effective and provided a great service. They went the extra mile to help my elderly uncle and aunt find a genuine buyer for their house and made the sale process as easy as possible for them. "
" Through their excellent networking abilities they were instrumental in introducing us to a local builder back in 2015 and as they say the rest is history, we are now living the dream. "

" Liebe Laurean, lieber Robert, Ich möchte mich für die erfolgreiche Vermittlung meines Traumhauses sehr herzlich bedanken. Vom ersten Tag an habt ihr mich begleitet, mir wetvolle Tips gegeben und die Kaufabwicklung vorangetrieben. Dies is in Spanien nicht einfach !! Eure Arbeit ist sehr professionell, alle Punkte wurden angesprochen und geklärt. Auch wenn meine Anforderungen in diesem Bereich sehr hoch sind, wurden diese sehr schnell und erfolgreich umgesetzt. Ich habe in meinen 15 Jahren in Spanien vorher nie so eine nachhaltig vertrauensvolle Zusammenarbeit erlebt. Das Haus entspricht zu 100 % meinen Vorstellungen, wurde in einem perfekten technischen Zustand übegeben und zur Übergabe liebevoll dekoriert. Hut ab vor dieser Leistung ! Ich konnte sofort einziehen, mich entspannen und wohlfühlen. Beste Grüße Jasmin I would like to thank you very much for the success of my dream house. From the first day on you have accompanied me, gave me wet tips and the checkout promoted. This is not easy in Spain !! Your work is very professional, all points have been addressed and clarified. Even if my requirements In this area are very high, these were implemented very quickly and successfully. In my 15 years in Spain, I have never experienced such a trusting cooperation before. The house is 100% of my expectations, has been passed in a perfect technical condition and lovingly decorated for the handover. Big props for that performance ! I was able to move in immediately, relax and feel good. "

" Finding our new home on the Alicante coast was a genuine pleasure with Bob and Laurian from Blue Ocean Estates. Not only were they very efficient showing us properties suited to our needs but were fun to be with too. Driving us around and about was not a chore, but enjoyable ending up usually for a light lunch and a well earned drink. We would certainly recommend them as their expertise is balanced with tact and understanding, very professional and inspiring too! Our lovely home was our easiest buy ever! "

" Bob and Laurian run a very different estate agency business that is perfect for us. They are friendly, intelligent, competent and hard workers. They are not pushy or overwhelming. Once they know what you want, they always seem to find lots of properties that tick most of your boxes. Yes difficult to resolve, but would you prefer loads of houses, that you know from a 100yds, that you just don't want to see? Our experience is that Bob and Laurian simply make what can be an exhausting experience a pleasurable one because it's so efficient. "

" Everyone deserves a bit of luck every now and then and ours came recently when we chanced upon Robert from Blue Ocean Estates. We were novices at buying property abroad and were searching web sites for a suitable villa and came across one that Robert had on his books. We did not know at this time that Robert has links with other estate agents in the area and was able to recommend properties that were on his books as well as from elsewhere. We visited Spain earlier in the year and met with Robert who drove us around the area and we viewed villas that we had chosen and ones that were recommended. Throughout the three days that we spent with Robert, he was very patient and understanding of our needs and very informative about the general area and was very honest about the houses we viewed, pointing out plus and minus points that we had not noticed. As far as having someone advise you on properties in the area, we could not have wished for anything better. We did not find anything that suited us on that visit but Robert was completely understanding and we were sure that our next visit would be more fruitful as Robert was more in tune with our likes and dislikes. And so it was. On our next visit in April we were delighted with one of the properties, the price, location and design of the villa, Robert made the offer for us which was accepted and he has kept in contact throughout the purchasing period to ensure everything was progressing to our satisfaction, even driving us to Denia and organising NIE numbers, introducing us to a very good lawyer to arrange the purchase as well as driving us to Javea to open bank accounts! We could not have done this without him and are very grateful for the time, effort and unbiased information that Robert was able to give. Thank you Robert, a very successful transaction. "

" Dear Robert, I would like to thank you, Robert, and your lovely wife Laurie, for all the work and efforts you put in finding me my house in Spain. It was a big task since my wish list was rather long, but thanks to your and Laurie's efforts finally after four months and three visits we succeeded. The coordination with all the other agents was very well done, and your follow up greatly appreciated. Thank you for this. Best regards, Monique "

" I arrived in September 2015 hoping to find a property to purchase - Following several viewings with other agents over several days, I was truly lucky to meet Robert 3 days before I was due to leave the area - Robert took the time to not only arrange for more viewings but also for a lovely sightseeing tour around the area I was interested in - Robert answered my many queries about buying in Spain with honesty - I found the house I wanted on the first day of our viewings and completed 3 weeks later, with every step of the process taken care of by Robert... Thank you Robert for making the whole process so easy. Best regards "

" Dear Robert and Laurian We would both like to thank you for your support in finding us our ideal property in Spain. The service you provided was beyond our expectations. Following our first communication over the internet and our first viewing trip you spent a few days driving us around locations we were interested in, and others that we had not considered. Your knowledge of the local areas, together with your relationship with other estate agents, gave us the opportunity to consider and decide exactly what we wanted for our retirement home. On our last visit in July we viewed the property we are now residing in, and hope to have many happy years here. Whilst Robert spent a considerable amount of time showing us around properties at no time did we feel under any pressure. Finally, if you are considering purchasing a property in this area we would recommend Robert and Blue Ocean Estates without any hesitation. "
