A Property Finder (sometimes also referred to as a Buyers Agent) is a real estate specialst who is contracted to work on behalf of the person or persons looking to buy (or rent) a property. It is important that the property finder is independent and not associated with, or attached to any developers , real estate franchises or networks.
We save you money. We save you time. We work ONLY for you! We work smart & we make it personal.
Viewing trips and orientation breaks, can prove very costly and time consuming if you haven’t done the proper homework beforehand – especially if you are being shown around properties, and areas, that are simply not suitable – so by employing somebody to work with your best interests at the forefront, you are adopting a cost effective and positive approach to your search, which will result in you finding your absolute ideal property.
Our bespoke property finding is our most sought after service and is what makes Aldertons the Buyers Agent of choice.
We know the property market and the area in great detail – from coast to country, mountain to sea – we will find that property which not only ticks all the boxes, but really works for you and your lifestyle.
When you engage our property finding services, we will be your sole point of contact in Spain – your eyes and ears on the ground. We will approach private sellers, developers, real estate agencies, lawyers, architects and local WhatsApp neighbourhood groups to find the right properties to view – only presenting you with the properties that we know will meet your criteria. Our knowledge of the local areas allows us to discard the properties that we know simply won’t suit before you even touch the ground, thus saving you precious time and energy – it also allows us to talk to you candidly about all the properties and areas you may have earmarked – even to the point of getting you to reconsider properties that you may otherwise have written off based on online marketing or wrong assumptions.
In addition to the property search and selection process, we will also guide you through the buying process, from organisation and application of the relevant paperwork (such as your official documentation needed), choosing a lawyer, surveyor, bank account and utility providers, helping you with the negotiation of prices and rates for their services. Contracting Aldertons ensures you have a dedicated search partner, guiding you through the entire process from initial search to negotiation of price, the legal process and finally the ‘settling in process’, which is often overlooked.
Holding your hand from start to finish, answering all your questions and being completely transparent means that whilst you start with us as customers – you will finish as friends.

We cannot be more pleased with our relocation experience and it just keeps getting better. Aldertons of Spain took special care to get to know us and ensure we found the best location for the lifestyle we desire.
Thank you for your expertise, your kindness, and many laughs! The team has supported us from temporary rental to “dream home” purchase, residence visa submission, contacts with local contractors, lawyers, interpreters, agents of health insurance…. the list goes on….and we just can’t say enough. Thank you.

We have just spent almost 3 weeks house hunting with Aldertons. They also helped us with applying for our NIEs, gave us very good visa advice and quickly connected us to a really excellent lawyer. They’re a great team – friendly, helpful and so professional. Having their support was a massive help to us and we really wouldn’t have known where to start with it all.
Though we are learning Spanish, we are nowhere good enough to manage the admin side of things and having Emma to help us make our notary appointment and Stephanie to accompany us was so reassuring. Need to give a massive thanks to Gillian who absolutely worked her socks off – finding us properties and sorting out viewings. She is really lovely too – thanks so much Gillian !

As real estate agents are paid by the seller, they never really work ‘for you’ – even though all their literature and advertising will promise you that they do!! They actively push houses that are in their best interests to show, which is great for the seller, but not so great for you – the buyer, as this means you are only seeing what they want you to see. Remember their agency contract is with the seller – their client – and as such they are always working on behalf of their customer.
For a real estate agent – it’s a numbers game. They need to look busy and have lots of homes to show “for sale” in their windows, or on property portals, but in order to keep those homes on their books, they have to actively take buyers to view the property on a regular basis, even if the house doesn’t really match the buyers requirements – a little bit of sales speak, and some gentle glossing over of the facts can make the house seem perfect for you, until you actually get there!
With over 1500 estate & sales agents in the Marina Alta area alone (Denia, Javea, Moraira, Benissa, Calpe, Benitachell, Jalon and Orba Valleys & surrounding areas) – it can be a minefield trying to find your ideal property, many houses are for sale with multiple agents, often at different prices, and with different pictures, so until you turn up to the same house twice, with different agents, you are totally unaware you have been looking at the paper or online details of the same property. You will also find many agents listing properties in their windows and on their web sites, which have already been sold or have been removed from the market.
