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
short, trust in Paco to assist you in either the selling or buying of your

"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.
"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 through 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 in to 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.”

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."

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
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
And if he wouldn't know, he would just tell us that he
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
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
"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.

"Gilberte and Marc, buyers from Belgium. November 2016"
"Laura & Shane, buyers from the UK. October 2016"
"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
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.
"John & Skeeter, buyers from the
Netherlands. June 2016"
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.
"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.
"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.

"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.
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
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
"Annelies & Gerard, buyers from Netherlands. January 2016"
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!

"Gillian Stewart & Alan, buyers from UK. November 2015"
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.
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!

Thank you so much for all you have done for us.
Wishing you all the best.
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,
Regards, Michael Howard

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.

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.
is always with some trepidation that you embark on a foreign house purchase

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
He also has great connections to other professionals who guided us in
our purchase which ultimately meant a timely & happy conclusion.
not hesitate to recommend him.
"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
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
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
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
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
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.

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.

& Noreen Bereza, buyers from Lincs,
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.

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
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
